Cal Holmwood was a Colonel of Department 19, and became Interim Director after Henry Seward was kidnapped by Valeri Rusmanov and Dracula.

Physical descriptionEdit

Cal wasn't very tall and wore clean, rimless glasses, looking more like an academic than a soldier. He talked quite politely and warmly at once.[1]


We can infer that Caleb was quite kind compared to most generals, having quite a lot of patience which Jamie drains from him.

Battle at the ChâteauEdit


Jamie CarpenterEdit

His relationship with Jamie is awkward because he hates and likes him at the same time.
