Current [[spoiler:(now former)]] King of Transylvito. Hasn't left the capital since his inauguration tour, but can see through the eyes of bats with the help of his Thinkamancer.



** Don King starts to ponder his increasing mistreatment of Caesar and enmity with Gobwin Knob, wondering whether Royalty really is the be all end all. But then, just as he is about to reconsider, [[spoiler:Charlie and Jillian]] provide him with a new resource to redouble down his current path.

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Don King gets manipulated by Charlie into trying to send Parson back to his home world, against the very determined protests of his Chief Warlord Ceasar. Eventually this culminates in Don attempting to disband Ceasar in front of Parson, Bunny, and Vanna. Unfortunately for him, Bunny intervenes by using a heretofore unseen Thinkamancer ability which cuts his primary threads, instantly erasing him (and herself) from the game.]]
* LikeASonToMe: He admits he sees Caeser this way, before mentioning how things had gone with his actual son.
* ManipulativeBastard: Caeser considers Don a master of negotiation and admires how easily he gets [[spoiler: Stanley the Tool]] dancing to his tune. [[spoiler: It turns out later that he had ''massively'' underestimated his leverage, and Stanley had agreed so quickly because it was a genuinely good deal.]] Parson notes his talent at playing multiple angles in his favor, but also keeps in mind that compared to [[MagnificentBastard Charlie,]] Don is strictly minor league.

* RoyalBlood: He is "descended" from one of the original units the Titans chose to rule. He did not originally make a big deal of it, and in fact started de-emphasizing it in favor of a merit based system after his son betrayed him. But after Queen Bea committed suicide out of Royal pride, he has started to adopt the same snobby, derisive attitude that is all too common among Royals. This has raised tensions greatly between him and his commanders, especially with Caeser.

Vinny's superior in the court of Transylvito, and appointed heir to the throne. [[spoiler:Now the new ruler after Don's death.]]



* BlueBlood: He is a Noble, though just barely, and unlike many nobles did not pop knowing noble etiquette. Don King did not originally care about that and took great pride in Caeser's skill. But after converting to the "Royalist religion", Don has started using Caeser's lowly status to hold him in contempt.

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Caesar used to be Don's favorite warlord and Designated Heir (based on merit) until Don got the Royalist "religion" and decided to try to pop another Royal heir. Now, the in-fighting between the two threatens to poison their side.

* TheConfidant: Don King implicitly trusts her with all things, courtesy of when Bunny [[spoiler: saved his life during Ponzie's attempted coup.]] She's uncomfortable with this status, but isn't afraid to exploit it for the betterment of the side.

* BackupFromOtherworld: Charlie lies to Don King that Parson is this, a dead Erfworld warlord and the greatest Erfworld has ever seen, summoned back to life by Charlie's enemies from the City of Heroes. Were this true, this would be an ultimate act of heresy, since Titanic scripture explicitly forbids returning from the {{Afterlife}} or acting as if the dead still impact the living.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Discussed. The main reason they want Charlie taken out is to help protect their secrets. To do this their agent (Parson) needs to be pretty smart in his own right or else he'd simply fail. But a highly intelligent person with plenty of access to high level Thinkamancers will eventually start to discover those secrets on his own. [[spoiler:They eventually decide that they've given him too much and betray Gobwin Knob.]]

** [[spoiler:They make a deal with the other casters of the Magic Kingdom that involves executing Wanda and barring both Charlescomm and Gobwin Knob from the Magic Kingdom. One of the compromises they make is to sign a contract that will close the loopholes they have been using to spy on the Magic Kingdom, figuring they will eventually figure out new and better loopholes later. As a result, they are blindsided when Charlie sneaks explosives under their temple and destroys it, eliminating their base of operations, killing a good number of them, and incapacitating the survivors.

* HalfHumanHybrid[/]{{Dhampyr}}: He has some Transylvitan Signamancy, such as the gray skin. If Erfworld units actually had two parents, he'd be Vinny's kid. However, he lacks other vampiric traits such as the eyes, ears and most especially teeth. While he does have the flying special, he does not have the drain life ability.

** [[spoiler:That is until TV betrays Faq.]] While Albert may not realize it, Vinny IS his dad in the eyes of the Titans, but that ruined their relationship.
