My Babysitter's a Vampire Wiki

Rory Keaner is the "geeky" friend of Ethan Morgan and Benny. It's his second year at Whitechapel High, making him a sophomore.


Background

Rory is... well, Rory. He's the kind of guy even other geeks call a geek. And no matter how odd Ethan and Benny can be, Rory still manages to be the odd man out. But even though he sometimes doesn't perfectly fit into Benny and Ethan's relationship, Rory is still an important character when the situation calls for it. His goofy and gullible nature as well as his vampire qualities make him a useful asset for Team Human. One day Rory plans to prove to the world how totally awesome he is. Until then he's just hoping his parents don't find out he is undead -- they'd kill him if they found out!

Throughout the show, Rory serves as a reminder that not all vampires are "evil", vicious, or cold-hearted. Rory occasionally helps Ethan and Benny out with saving Whitechapel, and chooses not to suck their blood, considering as they are his friends.

He is a full Vampire, and can therefore fly, but is often inexperienced or forgetful about his new powers and limitations. As a human, Rory was (and somewhat still is) a nerd. He is considered even more immature than Ethan and Benny and though immature and clueless, he is sweet and earnest. He is intrepid, involving himself in his friends' adventures, which usually ends up exacerbating any problems. Rory generally maintains many unrequited crushes, most of which only last an episode.

Romances

Rory has never had a girlfriend or boyfriend, but he has had a small relationship with Debby Dazzle in season one. He has kissed Erica in Blood Drive, and seems to be romantically interested in her throughout the series. He was also visibly awestruck by Doug the Vampire Hunter (even floating at the sight of him), and believed himself to have received a hickey from a vampire who bit his neck in the movie. He also believed he was in a relationship with "Betty", who was just Benny wearing a cheerleading uniform in the episode Three Cheers for Evil.
