Jonathan Harker, of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), husband of Mina, is a lawyer who is summoned to take over Mr. Renfield’s position, since Mr. Renfield has lost his mind and is currently kept at a mental warehouse or a looney bin, and Jonathan Harker is appointed to take over Mr. Renfield’s client, Count Dracula.  Count Dracula is buying property in London, and Mr. Harker is supposed to travel to Transylvania (where Count Dracula lives) and have Count Dracula sign legal paperwork for his newly purchased property.  Mr. Harker is convinced that this is a big opportunity for him, especially if he wants to secure a positon in the firm, then he must close the account with Count Dracula.  Mr. Harker is a quiet, and curious gentleman, who illustrates these traits upon arriving at the castle and meeting Count Dracula, he asks the Count various questions that did not have to do with their arranged business meeting.  Mr. Harker becomes a prisoner of Count Dracula and is seduced by Dracula’s wives, who are three undead women who also live in the castle and long to suck Jonathan’s blood.  Harker begins to document his unusual experiences that he has taken part in while imprisoned in the castle.  Soon, he escapes the castle by hurling himself into the water and making his way to Budapest where Mina meets him since she heard he was ill.  While in Budapest, Jonathan and Mina get married.  They both head back to England, where Jonathan inherits his former boss’s wealth, and learn about what damage Dracula has inflicted, whereupon he decides to join Dr. Van Helsing’s quest to kill Count Dracula.  After learning that Mr. Harker’s beloved wife is a victim of Dracula, he and his fellow vampire hunters track down Dracula in an intense race to kill him before he can reach his castle and the day turn to night.  Jonathan is seen fighting off Dracula’s loyal servants and eventually cutting open Dracula’s throat with his knife.  Mina makes the final, killing blow to Dracula’s heart, bringing an end to his mischief.  Jonathan Harker is seen as a quiet fellow in the beginning, but at the end we see Mr. Harker in a different light, where he showcases his bravery, courage, intelligence, and his devotion to his beloved wife.
