!!Vladimir Dracula
!!!Actor: Gerran Howell
->'' '''Vlad:''' Being a vampire [[YourVampiresSuck sucks.]]''
->'' '''Zoltan:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Isn't that rather the point?]]''

The main character of Young Dracula, Vlad is the son and heir of Count Dracula, as well as being [[spoiler: the Chosen One]]. Unfortunately for his father, all Vlad wants to be is a normal human boy. Vlad's desires result in a rejection of vampiric ways and the befriending of "breathers", particularly Robin and Erin. Despite this, Vlad cares greatly for his family and, as the series progresses, [[CharacterDevelopment becomes more confident in his role]].

%%* ActualPacifist: At least at the start of the show.
%%* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Vlad fits the trope for Ingrid.
* AntiAntiChrist: [[spoiler: The vampires' long awaited Chosen One]].
* BadassCape: Usually when he is around other vampires or when he is going to use his vampire powers.
* BerserkButton: Want to have [[spoiler: the Chosen One]] hunting you down? Threaten his family or friends.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Vlad is normally the nicest vampire when it come to breathers. Then [[spoiler: the slayers use Ingrid as bait, nearly killing her several times.]] The result left a pair of hard-core slayers speechless and terrified.
* BewareTheHonestOnes: None of the vampires seem to get Vlad, culminating in Dracula's "over my dead body" when [[spoiler: Vlad declares he's going to get Ingrid]]. Interestingly, the slayers predicted he would, meaning that humans understand Vlad better than his own kind.
%%* TheChosenOne: In Season 2.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* EvilCostumeSwitch: An interesting example in episode 3x01 has Vlad change from his school uniform into a black leather jumpsuit and black cape to go rescue Ingrid from the slayers. He's not actually turning evil but he is embracing the vampire side of himself.
%%* TheFettered
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: What Vlad wants his family to be.
%%* HalfHumanHybrid
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: At least, when it came to [[spoiler: Boris post-transformation]]. Possibly more a WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief on Vlad's part.
** Many of the other characters think that Vlad is this, as he often trusts those who would kill him, like [[spoiler: Ingrid or the Van Helsings]].
* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Vampire Parents]]: Vlad has touches of this at times. Far worse with Magda than with the Count.
%%* IJustWantToBeNormal
* IncrediblyLamePun: Seems to be quite fond of these. Commented on by other characters.
-->'''Bertrand:''' ''Revamp you?'' Really?
%%* OnlySaneMan: When compared with other vampires, at least.
%%* ReluctantWarrior
* ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: Episode 3x08. Mere words cannot describe the awesomeness.
* TookALevelInBadass: Between Seasons 2 and 3, and again during 3x09.
* VampiresAreSexGods: At the beginning of series 3 lot of fans think Gerran Howell at gone quite hot.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Can sometimes act like this due to his father's disappointment at him not wanting to be a vampire.
%%* WhiteSheep

!!Count Dracula
!!!Actor: Keith-Lee Castle.
-> ''[[UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill "We shall bite them on the beaches, we shall bite them in the fields and the streets. We shall bite them in the hills; we will never surrender."]]''

The father of Vlad and Ingrid, Count Dracula adores being a Vampire and cannot understand Vlad's lack of enthusiasm. While the Count claims to be "the Prince of Darkness", he often shows compassion and frequently ignores Vampire convention, such as assosiating with humans. The Count desires to make Vlad into his true heir, and is frequently dissapointed with his son's desire to be normal. He ignores Ingrid because she's a girl.

%%* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type I]].
* AbusiveParents: Shows blatant favouritism for Vlad over Ingrid, even though Ingrid is the one who acts like a proper vampire.
** It could be argued that he's also abusive to Vlad based on his inability to accept that Vlad isn't a younger copy of himself, but it's much less blatant than his abuse of Ingrid.
* BadassLongcoat: Part of his "breather" look. So much so that a swarm of people mistake him for a rock star.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He can be a source of much comic relief, particularly when his contempt for "breathers" and their culture comes up, but never forget that he is a ruthless monster who thinks nothing of violence, sadism, and murder.
%%* CardCarryingVillain
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite it all, there do seem to be ''some'' lines the Count won't cross.
%%* FullyEmbracedFiend
* HistoricalInJoke: Tends to be the focus of them.
* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Vampire Daughter]]
* ILoveYouVampireSon: He really does care about Vlad, albeit in his twisted way, and actually was genuinely worried for him in the series 2 finale. Also, he's notably the only family member who seems to ''like'' Vlad.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He's nicknamed "the Draculoser" in-universe and frequently made fun of for other characters for being a washed-up has-been who can barely even take down livestock, but every now and then he'll make reference to the fact that in his heyday he was Vlad the Impaler, killer of thousands and one of the most horrifically ruthless dictators ever to walk the face of the earth.
%%* PivotalWakeup
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He views women about the way you would expect someone from the 15th century to. This is typical for a vampire.
%%* StalkerWithACrush: To Miss [=McCauley=].
* VampiresAreSexGods: The actor, Keith-Lee Castle, is pretty attractive.

!!Ingrid Dracula
!!!Actress: Clare Thomas
-> ''"You're a heartless, spiteful, self-centred bully... and so am I but you just can't see it!"''

Vlad's [[VampiresAreSexGods attractive older sister]]. One of the most self-assured and cruel characters, Ingrid embraces her Vampiric side, desiring to be [[VampireMonarch Vampire queen]]. Despite this, the Count belittles her, preferring to spend time training Vlad. This causes Ingrid to become both angry and bitter towards her father and brother, resulting in [[spoiler: several murder attempts]].

* AntiVillain: Varies between [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type I]] and straight villain.
* [[BigBrotherBully Big Sister Bully]]
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:Leaves Vlad for dead at the end of Series 2.]]
** Also tries to [[spoiler: stake Vlad]] in ''Bad Vlad'', and forms a group of female vampires to [[spoiler: kill Vlad]] in ''Hit Chicks''.
%%* TheCaligula: In the Series 2 finale.
%%* CantGetInTroubleForNuthin
* ElectraComplex: [[spoiler: Leaves the Count in a UV cage at the end of Series 2]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ingrid is excited to become evil incarnate by joining with her blood mirror self, but draws the line when it suggests she kill her boyfriend Will and decides to run off.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: For all that she hates The Count's treatment of her, she will occasionally show genuine distress when his life is in danger. Also, she and Vlad do get the occasional AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moment. "A Matter of Life and Chess" is a good example of both of these.
* FilleFatale --> FemmeFatale: And she's well aware of it. In her own words: "twice as beautiful, three times as evil."
* GreenEyedMonster: A lot of her hostility towards her family clearly comes from not only being TheUnfavorite all her life, but the universe seemingly agreeing by [[spoiler: making her brother TheChosenOne despite his complete disinterest in it.]]
* IHateYouVampireDad: Ingrid suffers this, though it is mostly because the Count largely ignores her.
* WellDoneDaughterGirl: As a result of the Count completely ignoring her, even though she wants to be his heir and Vlad doesn't.
* UncannyValleyGirl: No one notices, of course. Except Eric Van Helsing.
* UngratefulBastard: She actually acknowledges that Erin saved her life - but only so that Vlad will ''think'' she has a reason to help save her in return. All the while, she's planning to have Erin killed.
* TheUnfavorite: The Count blatantly favors Vlad over her. A strong example of this is shown in "Blood Relations": She asks for money for new shoes (as her old ones are both worn out and too small) and he responds that he can't spare the money and tells her to walk around barefoot. A few minutes later, Vlad asks for money for party decorations, The Count gives him twice what he asked for. The Count also openly admits he loves Vlad more than Ingrid on multiple occasions.
* VampiresAreSexGods: All the boys at Stokely Grammar School are infatuated with her.

[[folder: Supporting Characters Pre Time-Skip]]
Due to the uncancellation of the show and the the creators being forced to continue the story as the actor have grown up most characters have been PutOnABus.

!!!Voice Actor: Andy Bradshaw, Animatronics: Colin Newman, Puppeteer: Garry Rutter
* BadAssBookworm: Probably the smartest person in the castle, as shown when he helps Vlad revise for his Vampire tests (he even has a pair of reading glasses!), and as for the badass part? Well he is a hellhound owned by Count Dracula...
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: disappears sometime into season 3.
* DeadpanSnarker
---> '''Vlad''': I hate being a vampire! It really sucks!
---> '''Zoltan''': Isn't that rather the point?
* ShoutOut: Named after the B-Movie 'Zoltan: Hound of Dracula'
* TeamPet: Often called a 'stuffed dog' by Ingrid and The Count (on account of having the appearance of a roll-along toy), much to his and Vlad's distaste...

!!Robin Branagh
!!!Actor: Craig Roberts

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Due to his semi-gothic persona and obsession with vampires, Robin is something of an annoyance to his elder siblings Ian and Paul (and vice versa).
%%* ChangelingFantasy: In one episode, at least.
%%* IJustWantToBeSpecial
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: He gets mind-wiped, along with every other human present, in Season 2's finale.
%%* MuggleBestFriend: To Vlad
%%* VampireVannabe
* YourVampiresSuck: Despite the fact that they are best friends, this is often Robin's reaction to Vlad's powerless state.

!!Chole Branagh
!!!Actress: Lucy Borja-Edwards

%%* DeadpanSnarker
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Mindwiped in 2x13.
%%* OnlySaneMan

!!Eric Van Helsing
!!!Actor: Terence Maynard
-> ''"Sure as boyscouts sing 'round camp fires, this whole school is full of vampires. Drinking blood, causing pain, and I won't rest 'til they are slain."''

Eric Van Helsing is an ineffectual, yet extreemly dedicated, slayer. Van Helsing's cover identity is as a woodwork teacher at Stokely Grammar, where he initially believes Robin to be a vampire, but soon decides to focus on Vlad. This results in many failed attempts to slay the Draculas. It is revealed that his obsession caused his marrage with Mina to break up before the series started. Van Helsing desperately wants his son, Jonno, to follow in his path as a slayer, despite Jonno's initial resistance to the idea. [[spoiler: Van Helsing is [[LaserGuidedAmnesia mind-wiped at the end of Series 2]], and in Series 3, it's revealed that he was [[BusCrash killed by vampires]]]].

* AbusiveParents: Van Hellsing is arguably worse than the Count. It is clear in season one that Johnno doesn't want to be a slayer but he just keeps forcing him into it and trying to make him feel like he is nothing if he doesn't become a slayer.
* BadassLongcoat: Not that he's exceptionally badass, but Eric Van Helsing does look quite impressive in his.
* BumblingDad: What Jonno sees him as in Series 1.
%%* BusCrash: [[spoiler: And it was Vlad's fault.]]
%%* ButtMonkey
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He never slays a vampire and his plans irritate the Draculas more than anything else. [[spoiler: He does eventually slay a vampire, but then forgets about it due to Vlad's [[LaserGuidedAmnesia mind-wipe]]]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Vlad makes him forget about vampires at the end of Series 2.
%%* VampireHunter

!!Will Clarke
!!!Actor: Harry Ferrier

%%* FirstLove: To Ingrid.
%%* KilledOffForReal

[[folder: Supporting Characters Post Time-Skip]]
Characters who appear here are major characters who have made an appearance since the time skip.
!!!Actor: Simon Ludders

* AbusiveParents: Not Renfield himself, but his father is a great example of this. He's more slightly veering towards failing sadistic babysitter when it comes to his interactions with the young Dracula's.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Generally is attractive to otherwise unconventionally attractive females. However, often shows himself to be possibly attracted to the Count, getting jealous when he spends time with other people who aren't him. That being said, it's Renfield, so best not to think too hard about it.
** When the Count informs Renfield that he is going to the Slayer's base.
--> '''Renfield''': No, please don't go, you're too beautiful to die!
--> '''The Count''': ...
%%* ButtMonkey: Prime example.
* DisguisedInDrag: Renfield in a dress was mentioned in Series 3 as being a plan that "never fails".
%%* MinionWithAnFInEvil
%%* SycophanticServant
* TheRenfield: Serving vampires tends to go with the name.

!!Magda Carmilla Elizabeta Bathoria Westenra
!!!Actress: Donna Grant
-> ''"Hello, Darlings!"''

Magda is the ex-wife of Count Dracula (though she claims the two never married), and the mother of Vlad and Ingrid. Before the series started she [[VampireWerewolfLoveTriangle ran off with a werewolf]] named Patrick, with whom, in Series 3, it is revealed she had a son, Wolfie. Magda returns back to her vampire family occasionally, solely to manipulate them into giving her something she wants.

* AbusiveParents: Has been leaving the family since Vlad and Ingrid were both really young. Shows up only to utterly manipulate them all. Arguably gets on better with Ingrid, but that doesn't really mean much.
%%* TheCaligula: Sort of in her Series 3 appearance.
%%* FemmeFatale: Uses this to manipulate The Count as she pleases.
* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Vampire Children]]: She really seems to resent having to play Mother.
* MissingMom: Shows up twice a season. Implied in the first series to only be keeping in contact with Ingrid.
%%* OverlyLongName
* ParentService: Actress Donna Grant is gorgeous and Magda can be described as being 'for the Dads'.
* VampiresAreSexGods: Magda really plays to this more so than any other adult vampire the show has.

!!!Actor: Lorenzo Rodriguez
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Averted. Wolfie seems to get along fine with his older half-siblings, preferring to annoy Renfield.
* MoralityPet: To the Count. Somewhat tempered by the fact that he views him as an actual pet.

!!Bertrand du Fortunesa
!!!Actor: Cesare Taurasi
* CassandraTruth: Keeps warning Vlad about the Shapeshifter, but is ignored due to vampire-breather coexistance problems.
