Background Information
Book Universe The Saga of Darren Shan
First Book Appearance "Vampire Mountain"

Paris Skyle was a Vampire prince and was the oldest living vampire. He was at least 800 years old before he died.

He apparently knew William Shakespeare (he drank from him on his deathbed to preserve his spirit), sailed with Columbus and inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula. He also met Mr.Tiny when he first came to Vampire Mountain to create the Hall of Princes and warn the Vampires of the Vampeneze Lord.

He died of "old age" in book eight due to the fact he walked into the wilderness and wrestled a bear (due to their life-style, old Vampires often choose to fight a battle they know they possess no hope of winning rather than die peacefully). He also helped Darren fight the Vampaneze. He is also the one who re-blooded Vancha March when Vancha was originally a half-vampaneze.
