Hremm Nevar is the primary nemesis for the mis-adventures of Alyson Bell storyline. He appears in book one: The Ghost of Colby Drive at first as a raven, and then into his shapeshifted form, a cunning and charming soul-stealing vampire.
Hremm Nevar easily seduces the vulnerable, in the same way a drug or addiction would "feed" the soul. His nourishment only feeds the hunger temporarily and leaves his victims wanting more power, until eventually it consumes them wholly, as in Sadie Finch, who character of an innocent teenage girl is suddenly transformed into this all-consumed evil. But unless Hremm Nevar takes the life out of a person via a soul-stealing kiss, that person is able to regain strength and overcome his evils.
Appearance: in vampire form, he is a man in his early 30's, charming and attractive; can take the form of a black raven

Hremm is the Old English word for 'raven' and Nevar is 'raven' spelled backwards.
In 2007, at the Haunted Book Party book release for the first book, Montreal Storyteller, John David Hickey (known as JD Hobbes) portrayed the villain Hremm Nevar in a live reinactment of a scene from the book in which Hremm Nevar seduces Sadie Finch.
