Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) and beautiful Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel), the daughter of his former mentor, are the leaders of the well-armed organization. Their mission is to fight against the vampires, who have recently managed to revive the world's original vampire, Dracula (Dominic Purcell), nicknamed Drake. The vampires want to use Drake's power to kill Blade and to create more Daywalkers so that the vampire race can finally take over the world. Blade and the Nightstalkers must struggle to prevent this evil plot and to find a way to destroy Drake before time runs out for humanity.
