Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”
Quincey Morris is one of the three male suitors to the character of Lucy Westenra in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. He is a wealthy Texan who is best friends with the other two suitors. At one point in the book Morris admits that he is ‘a rough fellow, who hasn’t perhaps lived as a man should’ (Dracula Chapter 25). Quincey is one of the people to donate his blood to Lucy before her death.
After the death of Lucy Westenra, Morris joins Jonathan Harker, Dr John Seward, Professor Van Helsing, and Lord Godalming, in their quest to destroy Dracula to protect the rest of the world form his demonic presence.
As part of the group Morris travels from London to Transylvania before eventually fighting of the Count’s mercenaries and opening the coffin to destroy Dracula. In this last fight, Morris is wounded and later dies. Out of their respect and love for Quincey, Jonathan and Mina Harker name their first born after Quincey.
