* GreaterScopeVillain: In the sense he fathered the European vampires and and he may as well be much worse than Skinner Sweet. In fact, the latter owns his existence (as well as the American bloodline) to Dracula since he sired by a vampire from his bloodline. With that said, he is never actually fought by Skinner or Pearl in the main series. In addition to his storyline, its implied he is this for UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper, since he drove Albert, Duke of Clarence to madness and made him target Whitechapel prostitutes.
