History

Vanessa van Helsing is the granddaughter of Professor Van Helsing, a famed scholar and vampire hunter from the late 19th century. When Vanessa was thirteen-years-old, she began to develop psychokinetic abilities, which enabled her to perceive elements of the supernatural. These perceptions proved harrowing to Vanessa's psyche and she was placed in the care of the Potomac Psychiatric Hospital in Georgetown, Virginia. Vanessa remained their for seven years until her twenty-first birthday. After which, she was legally released to the custody of Georgetown College professor Donovan Caine. With Caine, Vanessa became one of several members of the "Night Force" -- a team of occult investigators under the guidance of the enigmatic Baron Winters.

However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
