Jonathan is a young Moroi boy who asks Dimitri about Strigoi. His friend Jeffrey claimed that Strigoi had horns, so Jonathan asks Dimitri why he doesn't have any horns. Dimitri answers that Strigoi don't have horns but that he is not Strigoi anyway. Jonathan notices that his eyes are brown, not red, and knows that Strigoi have fangs so Dimitri opens his mouth to show that he doesn't have fangs. Jonathan looks impressed and says that Strigoi are also strong and resistent to pain. Rose suggests that he punch Dimitri and find out. Jonathan pounds his fists against Dimitri's knee and Dimitri feigns being in pain. Jonathan says that Dimitri doesn't seem very strong and that he doesn't think he's a Strigoi.
