Vlad the Impaler was a madman who murdered thousands in terrible ways and drank the blood of some of his victims. He came to be known as Dracula.

Behind the scenesEdit

Some say that Bram Stoker's Dracula was based in part on Vlad.[1] Dracula means 'son of the Dragon'. His father was a member of the Order of the Dragon.

Vlad Tepes the Impaler, famous Romanian leader remembered for brutally impaling his enemies and prisoners. Tsepish comes from Tepes that means "the impaler". This is the same person that inspired the character Count Dracula in Bram Stoker's stories.

Vlad has inspired two characters in KQ lore, both Dracula, and Vladimir Tsepish of Ooga Booga.
