Mark Carballo is a character created by Quinn. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of Vampire Town".


Mark is the husband of Rose and the father of Adder. He loves his family dearly. Unlike his wife, he is not so supportive of his son unusual interests. For the past while his son, had developed an obsession with vampires, and the possibly of becoming a vampire hunter. Along with the fact that his son always dressed in a goth style, wearing black clothing and dark sunglasses. During the events of the story, a mortician named Carl Mueller was nearly attacked by a vampire in the small town of wisteria. A week later, his son decided that they visit the small town of Wisteria for their family trip. His son really wanted to visit the catacombs and hunt down vampires.

He didn't believe in vampires. In fact he thought that his son's who obsession with vampires and his gothic dressing style was goofy, and he repeatedly made fun of it. But his wife kept on encouraging him to be supportive of his interests. Therefore he reluctantly took his family insisted to visit the town of Wisteria. Although he would have rather taken them to a Jets football game. Which he bought field seat tickets for. But she kept on reminding him that it was Adder's turn and to support his decision. On the way, he and his wife were repulsed by a really foul smell. Apparently his son was carrying a vial of a rare vampire delicacy. It was a mixture of raven's blood with nightshade and mandrake all the way from Romania. Which apparently vampires cannot resist.

He and and his wife reserved two rooms at the Wisteria Inn. Inside they meet the hotel manager Stanley, Stanley was a quiet and seemingly paranoid man. He and his wife checked into their hotel room right away. Then his wife mentioned that their son Adder (trying to thinking like a vampire) wouldn't be checking in until it was it nighttime. This and his son's appearance gave Stanley the wrong impression that his son was a real vampire.

Later that evening, when he and his wife were asleep, his son broke into the catacombs below the hotel. Here his son mistakenly found and awoke the greatest vampire of all: Dreyfus. In the process, Stanley and Carl Mueller attempted to hunt his son down with hammers and stakes. But at the last moment, his son saved Carl Mueller's life. When Dreyfus appeared and tried to attack Carl Mueller. His son exposed Dreyfus to the morning sunshine and destroyed him. Afterwards his son felt that he had enough Vampire excitement for a while.

The next morning he and his wife woke up having had a good sleep. But they were not informed about their son's vampire slaying incident. He and his wife were shocked to see their son had washed off all the makeup and was now dressed like a normal teenage boy. Then what really surprised he and his wife, was that their son was ready to check out of the hotel. Then to go over and see that football. He was happy to hear this and wanted to leave right away, and make it for the kick off. So his son stopped inside the Inn to say goodbye to Stanley.

However, this would be the last he would ever see her son again as his old normal self. As his son said goodbye to Stanley he asked Stanley who could have attack Mr. Mueller the week before, if Dreyfus had only arose the night before. Stanley then told his son that, he was hoping everyone would think it was him, because it's getting harder and harder going around undetected. His son was then shocked to see Stanley that had no reflection! Stanley was the vampire! He then told his son: "I Hope you like Vampire Town, because you'll be staying here a long long time!". Then in a big hiss, Stanley opened his fangs to bite his terrified son! Soon either Stanley or even his own son would soon come after he and her wife!
