Morris Baldwin is Hugh's father and a veteran vampire hunter. He and William Graves sealed Count Dracula 30 years ago. Morris does not believe in favoritism and therefore chose Nathan as his successor instead of his own son.
He and his apprentices went to Camilla's castle in 1830 to prevent his resurrection. However, they were too late and Dracula was awakened by her. He lacked his full power, though, and prepared a ritual to drain Morris's very life force to replenish his own powers.
Official Background Edit
Morris is Nathan's Master and is teaching him the skills necessary to combat Dracula and his minions. He and Nathan's parents succeeded in banishing Dracula 10 years previously. He chose Nathan as his successor over his own son, Hugh, and passed on the 'Hunter Whip'.
The cannon series of Shin Dracula X(Return of the Belmont) in 1800, Morris and William(Alongside with Master Richter) defeat Dracula in the final battle.
