Brother Ambrose is a character in the non-canon novel Blood Enemy.
A human monk, Brother Ambrose's monastery was attacked and almost totally destroyed by a group of marauding Lycans, with Ambrose the only survivor. Driven nearly mad with grief and rage over the attack, Brother Ambrose began to gather the local peasants together to mount an attack on the Vampire stronghold, demonstrating a strong charisma and a surprising grasp of tactics despite his clerical background.
Although his first attempt to attack the castle in daylight is thwarted when Lucian awakes the castle bats, causing the superstitious peasants to believe that the bats are the Vampires themselves, his second attempt is more successful, the mortal attacking a stone tower where the Vampires are planning to rest for the day during their trip to Ördögház for Viktor's Awakening. The peasants take the Vampires and Lycans by surprise as the sun begins to rise. Although they succeeded in killing most of the party, among them Ilona, Viktor's wife, Soren, Lucian and Sonja managed to escape, Soren retreating to an unspecified hiding place while Lucian and Sonja spend the day in the catacombs of Brother Ambrose's old monastery. Lucian carries Sonja to the monastery in a tapestry to protect her from the sun.
A month later, the now-awakened Viktor tracks Ambrose down to his hiding place of the village of Strasba, allowing his forces to ransack the village while he, Lucian and Kraven confront Brother Ambrose. Despite Brother Ambrose's attempts to fight them off with silver and holy water, Viktor dismisses his feeble efforts, biting him easily. Although he had intended to force Brother Ambrose to work as his permanent servant if he survived the infection of the Vampire virus, Brother Ambrose proves instead to be extremely allergic to the virus, dying mere seconds after Viktor bites him, although Viktor regards it as no real loss as he had no desire to look for eternity upon Ambrose's repulsive countenance.
