Quincey Morris

Real Name

Quincey P. Morris

First Appearance

Dracula (1897)

Original Publisher

Archibald Constable and Company (UK)

Created by

Bram Stoker


He is a rich young American from Texas, and one of the three men who proposes to Lucy Westenra. Quincey is friends with her other two admirers, Arthur Holmwood and Dr. John Seward, even after Lucy has chosen between them, as well as Jonathan Harker. He carries a Bowie knife at all times, and at one point he admits that he is a teller of tall tales and 'a rough fellow, who hasn't perhaps lived as a man should.' Quincey is the last person to donate his blood to Lucy before her death.

Quincey is one of the few characters in Dracula to have prior knowledge of blood drinkers. In chapter 12, he mentions that he was forced to shoot his horse while in the Pampas after vampire bats drank it dry during the night.

Quincey plays an important role in the climax of the novel. He, along with Jonathan Harker, are the ones who finally destroy Count Dracula. Quincey is gravely injured in the final battle with Count Dracula, and dies shortly afterwards. In gratitude, Harker and his wife, Mina, name their son Quincey. Their son is actually named after all five of the men that destroyed Dracula but called Quincey because of Morris's death.
