|“||Actually, since I'm gay I think I should count for two guys instead of just one. I mean, in me you get the male point of view and you don't have to worry about me wanting to touch your boobies.||”|
— Damien Maslin in Marked
Damien Maslin is currently a Blue Vampyre who was a student at the Tulsa House of Night. Next to Stevie Rae Johnson, he has a knack for using big words, is kind and caring and excels academically. He is openly--and proudly--gay. He had been going out with Jack Twist who had an Affinity for "Modern Technology." Damien himself has an affinity for Air, despite them being rare for males to possess. He is more on the guy's side than on the girls' and is most of the time the one who speaks for the group when he is aware that they are thinking the same thing. He completes the Change at the end of Redeemed. Currently, Damien is in charge of the New York House of Night.
Damien has brown-colored hair and deer-like brown eyes. He is described as cute and looks good in boy's clothes. His adult vampyre tattoo is the goddess Isis turning her head in profile as she unfurls her mighty wings.
Damien is extremely smart and has a very large vocabulary. He often uses words like "sycophant" and "zealous." He is studious, wise, kind and very cute. He is extremely caring about his friends and would do anything for them. Always willing to lend a helping hand, he often helps close friend Zoey Redbird set up rituals for The Dark Daughters and Sons meetings.
Damien is very close friends with Shaunee and was close with Erin Bates before she betrayed him and his friends when she sided with Dallas and Darkness, but they briefly reconciled before she died.
Damien is close friends with Stevie Rae.
Damien becomes close friends with Zoey as the novels progress. He is the first out of their group of friends to forgive her for keeping Stevie Rae's resurrection a secret by saving her life from a Raven Mocker that tried to kill her.
Damien met Jack when Jack came in to House of Night as a newly turned fledgling. They became close and started dating before Jack is murdered in later novels. During his time with Jack, Damien was happy and satisfied. Damien still greatly mourns his death even though Nyx tells Damien that Jack has peacefully moved on after his death.
By the end of the series, Damien is in a relationship with a reporter called Adam Paluka. Nearly a year into their relationship, Damien broke up with Adam.
