Lestat de Lioncourt

Lestat is the narrator of the novels The Vampire Lestat, Queen of the Damned, The Tale of the Body Thief, and Memnoch the Devil. Marius' description of him as "Brat Prince" is highly accurate. Lestat's charisma and refusal to fail get him into and out of more trouble than any other vampire, or most humans, for that matter.

"Lestat, ever the maverick and the laughing trickster. Six feet tall, a young man of twenty when made, with huge warm blue eyes and thick flashy blond hair, square of jaw, with a generous beautifully shaped mouth and skin darkened by a sojourn in the sun which would have killed a weaker vampire, a ladies' man, an Oscar Wildean fantasy, the glass of fashion, the most bold and disregarding dusty vagabond on occasion, loner, wanderer, heartbreaker and wise guy." - The Vampire Armand
