Kisten Felps was a living vampire, formerly scion of Piscary. He had blue eyes and typically blond hair, though it may have been dyed, and loved to talk in a fake british accent. Though very handsome and capable of managing Piscary's underworld contacts, he is passed over in favor of Ivy as scion. Since Ivy refuses to come forward as Piscary's scion, Kisten maintains his public appearance and contacts on his own. Kisten and Rachel had a good relationship after Rachel betting him that he couldn't take her on a good date with a $60 budget, and they had become very serious. Upon Piscary's death, however, he "gave" Kisten to another vampire, who killed him, making Kisten have his first death. After his first death, Kisten took on the same personality of undead vampires and could not understand how or why he loved Rachel, just that he remembered loving her. Shortly after his first death, Kisten suffered his second death.


Its said that along side Ivy they grew up together. Its implied that prior to the series they tried out a romantic relationship as was expected being the last two living vampires in Piscarys line to keep it going. But it didn't work out so they parted as friends and now have a brother and sister relationship.

Kisten is a living vampire who possesses superhuman speed, agility, strength and reflexes. He can sense the emotions in a room if they are strong enough, especially fear, as it is an aphrodisiac to vampires. He can also pull an aura (which means he is letting his bloodlust get the better of him), and draw in portions of other's auras through intake of blood. As a vampire he can also play on any unbound vampire scar or scars bound to her to produce temporary inhibition loss and sexual desire in the victim. As a dead vampire, Kisten did not possess a soul until the final moments of his second death - he was stronger, faster, more rutheless and able to kill another undead by biting to mix their undead blood (though this killed him as well).


Kisten is killed by Ivy's former I.S. boss, the Undead Master Vampire Art at the behest of Piscary. Initially Art appeared to have no interest in killing Kisten when he changed into an Undead, but Kisten remembered that he loved Rachel even though he could no longer feel the love he had for her and bit Art to mix their Undead blood so they would both die and Art could not take revenge on Rachel or Ivy. As Kisten lay dying for the second time, his soul returned for a brief moment to tell Rachel that he loved her & Ivy and that he believes God holds the souls of the undead until they are ready to come home. It is unclear whether this happened because Kisten died twice in quick succession or because the soul always returns in the moments before an Undead dies permanantly.
