Vlad Ţepeş Drăkulya

Defending Sovereign, Church, and Country from the Forces of Darkness

Count Dracula, known more formally as Vlad Ţepeş Drăkulya, is the most powerful Vampire extant. Though only 500 years old, he is more powerful than Vampires twenty times that age, and is even more powerful than the dreaded Nosferatu, who are feared by even other Vampires. It is therefore all the more amazing that this paragon of monsters should willingly protect Humanity from others of his kind, especially considering the contempt he hold for Mankind. Yet he serves with dedication and loyalty, even to the point of risking his own life, though he claims to be only a weapon in the hands of Sir Differel Van Helsing. What follows is information gleaned from his official dossier at the Order.
