"You've got a fight on your hands..."
George Sands

Edgar Wyndham was a vampire and one of the Old Ones.


Edgar was over 1,000 years old, having been turned sometime in the 10th century. At some point, Edgar was recruited as an Old One.

Series 3[]

After the Box Tunnel 20 Massacre, Edgar posed as a senior police officer in order to sort out the problems caused by Mitchell's arrest; his arrest threatened to reveal the existence of vampires to mankind, and put the Old Ones plans for the world at risk.

He arrived at Honolulu Heights at the climax of the Series 3 finale, just in time to halt Mitchell's attempt to have George stake him to remove his taint from the lives of the other three. Wyndham stated that the vampires are now taking over the world and that the only reason that they are not taking action against George, Nina and Annie is his curiosity about Annie's potential for power and about the outcome of Nina's pregnancy, claiming that two werewolves have never conceived before and curious about what will result.

He also stated that he had plans for Mitchell and demands that the younger vampire comes with him, stating that he'll use Mitchell as an "attack dog" to kill others at his order and whim. Mitchell is compelled to agree but at the last minute George, horrified at what this will mean for his friend, finally takes action and stakes Mitchell to save him from being used in that way. Afterwards, George states to Wyndham "I think you've got a fight on your hands."

Series 4[]

It was revealed in series 4 that George killed him shortly after Mitchell.

Fergus mentions him in episode 3 of Series 4 in the flashback to 1855, where he mentions a bunch of Old Ones (Ivan, Wyndham, Jacob, Hettie and Mr. Snow) and how all of them but Mr. Snow are scared of Hal.

Traits and Abilities[]

Edgar possessed all of the traits and abilities of a Vampire; including immortality, enhanced strength and senses, awareness of the supernatural, increased rate of healing and invulnerability to most conventional causes of fatality. Edgar also possessed retractable fangs, the ability to ingest and digest blood, and his image could not be seen in reflections or captured on film. As an Old One, Edgar was also immune to certain Vampire weaknesses; such as religious objects, or the need for an invitation to cross a threshold (Edgar was able to walk through the front door of Honolulu Heights without a prior invitation). Due to his advanced age, Edgar was considerably stronger and more powerful than most Vampires; however it was suggested that Edgar, along with most of the Old Ones, were scared of Hal, even though Hal is only 500 years old (half the age of Edgar).
