This good character is a hero.

Colin is a character created by Sam. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Night Shift".


Colin is a nice, caring and supportive person with a slight stubborn touch. He often encourages other people to let loose and have fun once in a while. He attends school with an ambitious hardworking girl named Amanda. He is attracted to her and wanted to date her. Amanda reciprocated the feelings, but time and time again she turned him down. Since she felt that with school and work, she would be too busy to have a relationship.

During the event of the story, he was diagnosed with tonsillitis. He saw this as an opportunity to finally spend time alone with Amanda. Since he would be staying at United Hospital where she volunteered at nighttime.

After he was checked into the hospital, he became roommates with a boy named Bud who had a broken leg. He saw this as his perfect opportunity to try and spend time with her (although he wasn't feeling well). That evening he was first checked on by Nurse Laurette. She confirmed to him that Amanda was on shift that night. So he asked to see her, when Amanda first saw him, he played a little joke on her. He pretended that he was dreadfully sick. She felt awful for him. Until he jokingly revealed that to her, that he was only in to have his tonsils removed. Then she got mad at him for getting her all upset and worked up for nothing.

Then he got and followed her around the hospital, and told her that he only wanted one date. Then if she didn't like him after it, then he would leave her alone. She reminded him that she did like him. And she thought he was a nice guy, but at the time being, she was just to have a relationship. He complained to her that she was always busy, and never wanted to ever have any fun. Then he told that he wouldn't give up. Until she would say yes.

A little later, he noticed that his roommate Bud had been missing for a while. So he decided to go and look for him. Then in another room, he bumped into Amanda and startled her. He apologized for scaring her. Then he explained that his roommate Bud was missing. So he wanted help finding him, and to not get him in trouble, by telling head Nurse Hantin. Then he convinced her that they could have fun together searching for him. Finally he talked Amanda into it. So together they went looking for Bud.

He and Amanda walked around the halls quietly, calling for Bud by name but got no responses. Then hearing someone coming, he and Amanda hid inside a nearby closet. Inside the closet, he and Amanda suddenly became horrified and disgusted, to find many empty blood packs left on the floor. He and Amanda reported the incident to Nurse Hantin, but she seemed to be really out of it. Nurse Hantin said she would report it to security. However, when they left she put down the phone and did nothing. He and Amanda were also unaware that she had two bite marks on her neck!

Passing by the door to the morgue, he remembered that Bud wanted to see it. Inside the morgue, Bud was not there. Then he noticed that a dead body was on the table. This piqued his interest, because he had never seen a dead body before. So against Amanda's wishes, he lifted off the tarp. Then Amanda's heart sank when she saw who it was. It was Felix, the night janitor, who had still been alive just this past evening (Felix also had two bite marks on his neck). Since this was too upsetting for Amanda, he replaced the tarp over the body and he and she left.

Over at the front desk he and Amanda were getting freaked out, over how quiet the place was getting. Then out of nowhere Hospital administrator Jack Palmer appeared. Jack closed in on them sinisterly smiling and said that Felix was fine. Then Jack offered to take he and Amanda to go see him. Sensing how creep how was acting, he and Amanda ran off scared. When they left Jack also had two bite marks on his neck! Then much to he and Amanda's shock they encountered Felix walking up the stairs. Felix was laughing and smiling while showing his new fangs! Once again he and Amanda ran off terrified. But Felix followed he and Amanda into the room. Then Felix tried to bite Amanda and she screamed. So he threw him away, asking him what his problem was.

Felix said his problem, is that he was the first victim and had too much blood drained. So now he was becoming a vampire. Felix also said that everyone else in the hospital had been preyed on as well. Therefore they would soon become vampires as well. Felix noticed that he and Amanda still looked normal. So he deduced that he and Amanda may be able to stop it, before it was too late. Felix urged him to do it soon. Before it would get him and Amanda as well.

He still wasn't sure what he was talking about. So Felix lead him and Amanda to the basement. There Felix showed them a vampire's coffin. It revealed to him and Amanda that a vampire was smuggled inside. So now it had been preying on everyone in the hospital. He still didn't believe it. Then losing control, Felix attempted to bite him to prove it. Then Amanda threw Felix out of the way. Felix then explained that the vampire mailed itself in his coffin to the hospital, under the false pretense that it was a water pump. Felix mistakenly signed for the order and had it brought into the hospital. Felix then told he and Amanda that if they burned the coffin, they would destroy the vampire. Since a vampire can't live without a coffin.

Suddenly the brand new night shift volunteer nurse Margot appeared out of nowhere. Margot informed him them that Vampires don't only need a coffin. They also need to feed every fifty years. Also that there is no better place then a hospital. Because it's like a candy store. Then Margot informed them that her "work" was almost done anyways. Terrified, he and Amanda tried to leave. But Margot stopped them, and transformed into a old hideous evil vampire. Then he and Amanda run off terrified. But the doors were blocked off by security guards who had also been bitten.

He and Amanda went to hide inside a room, revealing how scared they were to each other. He informed her that it wasn't the first date that he had in mind. Amanda replied by saying that she hoped that they can make to a second one. Finally he suggested that they follow Felix's instructions to destroy the coffin. He also suggested that he would try to lure it away. Then he asked for Amanda to push the coffin into the incinerator. Amanda disagreed, because she thought the coffin would be too heavy for her. Then he reluctantly agreed to let her to lure it away, and for him to push it into the incinerator.

He quickly got the incinerator going, and began to drag the coffin to it. However from being sick he had trouble. Then Felix closed in on him. Felix was now a vampire, and was prepared to bite him! Felix closed in and was just about to bite him. Then he reminded him that soon Amanda would be killed. Felix became concerned for his dear friend, and became capable of fighting off the urges again. So he and Felix lifted the coffin together and prepared to place it into the incinerator. Meanwhile, the vampire had captured Amanda on the rooftop, and was preparing to bite her! Luckily he and Felix managed to push the coffin into the incinerator just in time. Then the vampire literally went up in flames. Then it fell off the roof and crashed to the pavement below and burned to death.

Then all the staff, nurses, and patients are healed and changed back to normal. He and Amanda rejoiced and hugged. Then he asked her if they could have their second date. She told him that she could squeeze him into her tight schedule. Then he and Amanda both left looking happy.
