To one thing I have made up my mind; if we find out that Mina must be a vampire in the end, then she shall not go into that unknown and terrible land alone. I suppose it is thus that in old times one vampire meant many; just as their hideous bodies could only rest in sacred earth, so the holiest love was the recruiting sergeant for their ghastly ranks.

– Bram Stoker

Dracula, Chapter 22. Jonathan Harker, after his wife Mina’s forehead burns when touched by the Holy Communion wafer. If she is fated to be a vampire, then he pledges to join her as one too, his devotion and love for her are so strong. He simply cannot see himself living without her.
