Benjamin Mahmoud, commonly referred to as Benji, is a vampire child who first appears in The Vampire Armand. Benji was a Bedouin child stolen away by Sybelle's brother who charged him to protect her in his mortal life. When he was twelve, he along with Sybelle were made vampires by Marius de Romanus for Armand. Marius gives the Dark Gift to Benji and Sybelle because he knew Armand was too afraid to do so himself.
Later "Benji" creates a podcast that is broadcast to all the vampires around the world. Later he is made the official voice of the vampires through his podcast by the Prince Lestat.
