Lord Ruthven vs. Varney vs. Carmilla, in a battle of the pre-Dracula 19th century vampires. This is using original versions of all characters, who wins in this one?

For a moment I thought you said Camarilla, not Carmilla, and came roaring in, ready to post 'curbstomp'. :)
As it stands, I have no idea... :(

I think it's a stalemate? From what I know they're all just basically "classic" style Vampires, with no abilities or feats that particularly place them above one another.
But I'm far from an expert, so someone that might have actually read some of their stuff might be able to enlighten us. :)

Anyone who is interested in reading ''Varney the vampire; or, The feast of blood. '' may go here (http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/toc/modeng/public/PreVarn.html) for the complete online text (only 888 pages long) of a classic Victorian-era ''penny dreadful''.

Well, Ruthven and Varney both have some degree of supernatural physical capabilities. Both can also be "killed" by normal bullets but will revive later if left alone. Not sure about Carmilla, but of the three I think she has the most demonstrated "vampiric powers" (ability to pass through walls, beastial transformation).

A woman, and a lesbian. Who in Victorian London could resist?:p
