One of the main characters is Geneviève Dieudonné, this universe's version of the title character from Newman's WarhammerFantasy series ''The Vampire Genevieve''.

* VampireVarietyPack: The different bloodlines.

to:

* VampireVarietyPack: The different bloodlines.bloodlines each features a different subset of vampire characteristics; only some bloodlines are able to transform into other shapes, for instance. Dracula's bloodline is said to be the only one where the metamorphosis involves dying and reviving (as opposed to transforming directly from a living person to an animate vampire), and the only one where a vampire has to rest in a box of his native earth; other bloodlines tend to regard this as a bit weird.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires come from a number of various "Bloodlines", but are considered biological entities with "just a touch" of magic (they don't cast reflections, for example). Some may be able to transform, while others have corpse-like features, and others suffer from blood frenzy. Religious symbols and even garlic only affect those vampires who believe they can. Sunlight only hurts younger undead, and silver only serves to counter their regeneration abilities; any sufficient organ damage (like, say, a stake though the heart) can kill them for good. Notably, Dracula specifically isn't vulnerable to as many things as he is in Bram Stoker's version; the turning point of history comes when he shrugs off an attack that, in Stoker's novel, seriously inconvenienced him.

** Commander [[Literature/JamesBond Hamish]] [[Film/JamesBond Bond]] of British Intelligence. If the family name wasn't enough to give it away, 'Hamish' is the Anglicanised version of the Scottish Gaelic equivalent for 'James'.
