Meeting Jamie CarpenterEdit

Attack on the LoopEdit

Prisoner of DraculaEdit


Throughout their time together, Seward has developed an almost paternal affection for Jamie Carpenter. He is full of admiration for his accomplishments and respects his decisions like a parent would.

Seward seems to be quite fond of Marie, regularly visiting her in her cell to talk and have tea.

Prior to Julian's "betrayal" and faked death, Seward and he have been close friends.

Seward and Turner share a close friendship, as Turner is the husband of Seward's sister, Caroline.
