Wallachia, 1455: a young woman named Lisa arrives at a massive castle, led to this strange locale by the rumors of the scientific knowledge contained therein. Upon entering the castle, she is greeted by its master: Vlad Dracula Tepez. Lisa explains that she is a doctor, often thought of among her own people as a witch, who wished to use the knowledge contained in the castle to help her people. Vlad asks what Lisa had to offer in exchange for his knowledge, to which Lisa explains that she does not believe Vlad to have traveled much, even though his scientific wonder of a castle could move across the land. She offers to travel the world with him, so he can live like humans do.

Vlad comes to respect Lisa for her wit and cunning, and Lisa respects Vlad for his intelligence. The two would fall in love and marry...but alas, theirs was a star-crossed love: twenty years later, the church found Lisa's studies and scientific instruments, accused her of witchcraft, and sentenced her to burn at the stake. With her dying breath, Lisa beseeched her love to not give in to the same hatred born of ignorance as other humans...

Dracula arrived in Wallachia on the night that she died, learning about her fate from a neighbor who detested the injustice brought against her and instead visiting her burnt house to pay her respects. Dracula had walked the earth as Lisa suggested to better understand humans...but there was no understanding the selfsame creatures whose ignorance claimed her life. He warns Lisa's neighbor to take her family and flee from Wallachia before vanishing in flames before her.

As Lisa's body crumbles to ash, Dracula's visage appears in the flames that took her life. With his one reason for tolerating humanity gone, he tells the people of Wallachia to make peace with their Lord, for in one year, he would return to purge humanity from Wallachia.
