-->'''Ethan''': I have a theory. I think Sir Malcolm saved your life, and [[IOweYouMyLife you owe him]]. That’s why you’re here.

* GenreSavvy: Roper learns his lesson though; in “All Hell Itself My Only Foe”, he comes for Ethan on a normal moonless night. He surveys the building Ethan is in, disarming him stealthily, and makes sure Vanessa is within sight for the confrontation. Roper then makes sure Ethan is handcuffed behind his back before they go any further. It still doesn’t do any good though.

The most evil and powerful vampire of all, Dracula is [[spoiler: one of the two fallen angels that are seeking Vanessa to be the "Mother of Evil" — the other being Lucifer.]]

* AffablyEvil: Dracula is unfailingly polite to his equals, and treats Vanessa in the manner of a true gentleman. When he confronts Ethan — his immediate rival for Vanessa's affections, and his predestined enemy — Dracula is quite reasonable. He only starts tossing him around after Ethan points a gun at his head. Later, he even gives the TrueCompanions a chance to walk away with their lives, simply because Vanessa cares about them.

* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: Whilst his minions stand out in a crowd for their UndeathlyPallor and dead eyes, Dracula himself — the greatest of all the vampires, a creature of unspeakable horror and power — looks and behaves like a charming, respectable member of the London academia.

** This is later played straight in "A Blade of Glass," when Vanessa rebuffs both Dracula and Lucifer — with Dracula threatening to assault her with every horror he can muster.

* WomanInBlack: After her possession, Vanessa is only ever seen in black. (This is partly owed to the fact that she's wearing Victorian mourning colours [[spoiler: for her mother]], but it of course fits the trope as well.)



* WomanInBlack: Seward dresses severely and in black.

* VainSorceress: Leads a coven of them, but she's the queen bee, and her penchant for BloodBaths seems to play into this.

Added DiffLines:

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Throughout the first season. He gets off his throne to do his own dirty work in season 3, [[spoiler: but he still lets his minions do the fighting for him (for the most part) once he triggers the apocalypse]].

* ComboPlatterPowers: Just like in the novel. He has already displayed his SuperStrength, but he may also have some form of MindManipulation. Catriona Hartdegan confirms that Dracula can [[{{Shapeshifting}} shapeshift]], altering his appearance and identity every century in order to blend in. [[spoiler: During his confrontation with Vanessa and Lucifer, he is able to [[MindOverMatter move objects with his mind]], though this ability is not yet confirmed as this happened entirely in Vanessa's mind.]]. Later, it's shown that he can easily dodge bullets.
** When he seduces Mina in the prequel comic, he exhibits his canonical ability to turn into green mist. He has also "bewitched" Jonathan Harker by wiping Jonathan's memory of his face and name.

* GlassCannon: Catriona confirms that, while his true form is completely unkillable, his human form is as vulnerable as any mortal's. However, while he takes the threat of gunshots and mortal wounds seriously, and deliberately avoids a confrontation with the Wolfman, the fact that he can easily dodge bullets and is super strong renders the point (almost) moot.
