Henry Sturges is the mentor of Abraham Lincoln in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (film). He tells Abraham Lincoln the difference between "doing something extraordinary and being satisfied with simple revenge."

It is later revealed that centuries ago, he was attacked and bitten by Adam and his wife was killed by Adam. Because Sturges's soul was impure, he became a vampire, and that prevented him from harming Adam or any other vampire (since "Only the living can kill the dead"). Sturges has since been training vampire hunters, hoping to destroy Adam.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Henry in human form appears to have light skin with brown hair, wearing coats and other clothing. As a vampire, Sturges skin appears to pale, eyes turning bloodshot red, making him wear glasses to hide his appearance in the sun.


Henry Sturges was a man who though suave, loyal, and skilled hunter, he had a impure soul, meaning in both immoral and sexual ways. After Adam killed his wife and turned him into a vampire, he became determined to train others to hunt down his 'kind'. Sturges also showed himself to be a man of sexual tendencies, shown when Lincoln found Henry having sex with a unnamed woman. Despite this, he was brave and caring of others, notably to Lincoln, whom he mentored for a decade.

He was shown to be aggressive in battles, an example is when training Lincoln in the dark, Lincoln came out brutalized, bleeding with cuts. Another is knocking Abraham when the former saw Jack Barts during his training.
