Mika Ver Leth (ミッカー・バー・レス Mika Ba Resu) is a Vampire Prince whom at first despised Darren. He dresses in all black, as that is his custom. He has shiny, jet black hair (portrayed as long in the manga) and dark eagle-like eyes. His features are sharp and raven-like. He was the youngest prince before Darren at a mere 270 years old. He is very stern, gloomy and grumpy. He rarely, if ever, smiles at first. Because of this he gives off a very intimidating persona. Like all princes, he has huge muscles and is quite tall (over 6 feet). He is very loyal to the Vampire clan and prizes honor and good-standing above all else. In the fight for Vampire Mountain in book 6, Mika led the second wave of fighters against the Vampaneze. He enjoys fighting and hates spiders. Seba had told Darren of Ba'Shan's spiders, Darren said to Seba do not tell Mika because he would stamp them out of existence.

In an appearance at a book signing in NJ Darren Shan said that Mika was Arra Sails' mentor and perhaps even a rival of Larten Crepsley's for her affection.
