The (More Than) Complete Cast of CVRPG
Heroes, Villains, Low-lives, and Agents of Leisure
Editor's Note: Some liberties were taken with the story of Blacula, specifically when the story takes place, to fit it properly into the Castlevania RPG universe. Blacula was originally intended as a cameo joke, and simply grew out of that.
Leader of an African tribe, Prince Mamuwalde met with Dracula many years ago to establish trade rights between his nation and Dracula's nation of Romania (plainly during one of the stints where Dracula was active and not buried in a ditch by whatever Belmont happened to be alive at that point). Dracula, in one of his many dick moves, killed and turned Mamuwalde, renaming the prince Blacula. He then locked Blacula in a coffin in a sealed up room, and threw the prince's wife in there for good measure.
She died of starvation and dehydration, but Blacula "lived" on. He eventually freed himself, looking for revenge on Dracula. While Dracula was out of the castle one day, Blacula took over, setting his minions on exacting revenge.
Specifically, doing the one thing Dracula had so far failed to do: taking over the world. Also, killing Dracula was on the list -- because, you know, why not.
Blacula is out for revenge. That is his primary motivator, and the only thing he's looking for. His wife, his true love, has long been dead, so there is little keeping him attached to the world. He will kill anyone and destroy anything that gets in his way.
As one of Dracula's vampiric creations, Blacula has a power-set similar to that of the Prince of Darkness. His primary attacks rely on "Hellfire" magic, a blend of the the Dark and Fire Affinities. Fireballs play heavily in his attacks, and are actually stronger than Dracula's own fireballs.
He also has access to limited Air magic, again just like Dracula. He can cast lightning bolts and lightning orbs, but these attacks are not as strong as Dracula's.
Blacula has a demonic form, one that appears when he's been damaged enough (sort of like a limit break). This demonic form is smaller than Dracula's own form, but it is faster. In a straight fight, on an open field, Blacula's would prove more powerful, but in the rooms of a castle, Dracula's form would have the advantage.
