* MeaningfulName: "Mägd" is the German word for "maidservant". (Her full name ''might'' be Magdalena, but it's uncertain- "Lena" is a common German diminutive on its own, so Chagal may just be appending it onto "Magda."

to:

* VampireBitesSuck: Judging by her shrieking, being bitten by Chagal wasn't too pleasant.


Added DiffLines:

* GlamourFailure: Being a vampire, he lacks a reflection. Significant, because Alfred discovers the fact during "Wenn Liebe In Dir Ist".


Added DiffLines:

* IKissYourHand: Not in the traditional way, Herbert places a light kiss on the palm of Alfred's hand, after stating that the student is trembling with fear.


Added DiffLines:

* KissOfTheVampire: Attempts one on Alfred, whom Herbert had a huge crush on. Alfred, being much too scared (and in love with Sarah) prevents it from happening, after which Herbert seems to get consumed by HorrorHunger.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreSavvy: Actually he is rather savvy, but unfortunately is too distracted to make good use of it. He isn't fooled a second by the villagers trying to convince him that there isn't a castle infested by vampires, predicts that worse things will happen, if the villagers refuse to see the truth, and actually sees through the Counts attempt to charm them.


Added DiffLines:

* CheshireCatGrin: After Alfred [[OhCrap realizes]] that the vampire he is trying to flee from stands directly behind him, he turns to face Herbert grinning wickedly at him. Depending on how it's played, this sometimes borders into SlasherSmile territory, especially considering what nearly happens after that grin.

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Contrasting his father's FauxAffablyEvil nature. Herbert, while being spoiled rotten to the core, seems genuinely friendly and charming due to his sociable nature, as long as he gets his way. As soon as people don't comply with his wishes, he starts showing his nastier side. And as creepy as Carpe Noctem is (especially to poor Alfred), Herbert didn't necessarily conduct the nightmare out of malice. The whole number even starts out with some sort of a lullaby. Out of a vampire's perspective who heartily embraces his own nature, there's nothing wrong with that dream, at all.

Added DiffLines:

* EatingTheEyeCandy: Just about every time Herbert and Alfred both appear on stage. Culminating in "Wenn Liebe In Dir Ist", where he compliments Alfred's butt while staring approvingly at it.

Added DiffLines:

* DumbMuscle: He appears to be the physically strongest character in the play, but he certainly isn't the smartest. Being TheUnintelligible doesn't help.
* TheGrotesque: Shows shades of this. He's a hunchback with a deformed face and feet to large for any shoes to fit. The villagers fear him (though part of it is certainly due to his alignment to the Count), and Chagal mocks him cruelly for his speech impediment. While he's clearly on the Count's side and not above doing some dirty work, Count von Krolock is actually the only one to display some sort of kindness towards him on stage, which can serve as some sort of [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe explanation]] for Koukol's UndyingLoyalty.


Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Possibly. While he dies at the jaws of the wolves in the movie, his fate in the musical is often left unclear. The Count does order him to go after the Professor, Alfred and Sarah, but we simply just don't see him anymore after the chase, so it's possible he survived.
* UndyingLoyalty: He will follow the Counts every order, even at the cost of his life.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceToTheWaiter: The Count treats Koukol with something resembling kindness, and Koukol in turn is [[UndyingLoyalty fiercely devoted]] towards him.

* DesperatelyCravesAffection: Implied, Herbert seems to crave affection of the romantic variety. Which may explain his {{Yandere}} tendencies, once Alfred turns him down.
* DidNotGetTheGuy: Though it's PlayedForLaughs. To anyone but him it was quite clear that he didn't stand a chance against Sarah.
