-->''As Kostaki shook off [[BigBadWannabe Dorakuraya's]] puppet strings, I was afraid he'd realize what he had done and be [[HeroicBSOD broken]] in himself. [[HonorBeforeReason Honor]] was [[UndyingLoyalty his straitjacket]]. He abided by a code Dracula and his party had long since abandoned. Only someone as stubbornly idealistic could have been so sorely abused.''\\

* TheIdealist: Captain Kostaki is revealed to be this in One Thousand Monsters, after it was hinted in Anno Dracula. Noted rather heartwarmingly by Genevieve, who has a great deal of insight into the Knight Templar, after he has been brainwashed into stabbing her only to come to his senses upon looking at her. Doubles as heartwarming and tearjerker moment.

* TokenGoodTeammate: Captain Kostaki alone of the Carpathian Guard displays decency and empathy. He is cordial to and respects Mackenzie, a [[BadassNormal warm]] policeman, while disapproving of many of his peers: cruel Von Klatka, blusterer Iorga, impertinent Cuda and arrogant Hentzau. He also shows sympathy for his Christian opponents, having once fought a holy war himself, and respects Genevieve appropriately unlike the rest of the Guard. He'll still follow Dracula's orders and hold up his regime, but he'll resent some of its less ethical behavior. This is expanded upon and further explained in his POV chapters of One Thousand Monsters, where it is revealed he is a Knight Templar loyally upholding his vows to the order, many years removed, where Dracula himself used and betrayed the Templars. Since his brutal unjust imprisonment in the Tower Of London under Graf Orlok and suffering constant pain from shards of silver remaining from a gunshot wound in his leg, he [[DefectorFromDecadence left his Carpathian brethren]], [[VegetarianVampire refuses to drink blood]], took the honorable path of bushido as a ronin and has [[LoveRedeems developed romantic feelings for Genevieve]].

* ''One Thousand Monsters'': 1899. A ship full of Vampires, led by [[TheHero Genevieve]] [[FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampire Dieudonne]], [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar Captain]] [[TheIdealist Kostaki]], [[TheCynic Sergeant]] [[LoveableRogue Daniel Dravot]] and [[LovableAlphaBitch Princess]] [[IceQueen Christina]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Light]], are exiled from Great Britain by Prince Dracula. They are allowed to settle in Yōkai Town, the district of Tokyo set aside for Japanís own vampires, an altogether strange and less human breed than the nosferatu of Europe. Yet it is not the sanctuary they had hoped for, as a vicious murderer sets vampire against vampire, and Yōkai Town is revealed to be more a prison than a refuge. Geneviève and her undead comrades are forced to face new enemies and the horrors hidden within the Temple of One Thousand Monsters.

* TheCassandra: [[BuffyTheVampireSlayerBigBads Drusilla]] [[Series/TheManFromUNCLE Zark]] in One Thousand Monsters. Most of the cast ignores her precognitive warnings because she comes off as a [[MadOracle Mad Oracle]]. Through the novel it becomes apparent she is accurately predicting later events in the story and what the characters will do, their fates, often in vague ways. At certain points she even hints at the events of the upcoming sequel Anno Dracula 1999. Kostaki begins to take her predictions a bit more seriously, and she has moments of lucidity in her predictions, going in and out of them.
