Character Analysis

Dracula

A mysterious tall thin man clean-shaven, except for a long mustache and clad from head to foot in black. He was a linguist and extremely knowledgeable. The most conspicuous of his appearance are his long sharp canine teeth and his touch, which is of the dead. He is a villain with almost supernatural powers. At his will, he can turn himself into a wolf, dog, mist, fog or bat. He has strange powers on the wolves with his one action, the pack of wolves go away.

Extremely mysterious, he does not have any menial servants and does all the work from making the bed to driving the carriage himself. He gets stranger and stranger, as he does not appear as a reflection on Jonathanís mirror. When Jonathan cuts himself, there is a light of demonic depths when Dracula sees blood. He is Count Dracula, the dreaded lord of the Un-dead. He is a blood- sucking vampire who has for centuries preyed on victims turning them into vampires and disciples of the Un-dead.

He is extremely suave and courteous and has an almost hypnotic power over his victims. He can make himself age according to his whims and fancies. He is the lord of the night. The anti- Christ, who fears the Crucifix, but has enough powers to create a deadly aura of evil. His victims Lucy, Renfield and Mina are under a hypnotic trance each time they hear him. He can, from miles ahead, read their minds and can put them in his powers. He is, as some critics feel, bisexual as his relationship with Jonathan has sexual hues. When the women vampires go to kiss Jonathan, he chases them away saying "he belongs to me, when I'm alone with him, you will get to kiss him."


He is absolutely wily and calculating, for he knows Jonathan will be missed, so he makes Jonathan write three letters to his employer and fiancée, saying that he has left Transylvania. A formidable man, he has the gypsies in his power and they do everything he tells them to do.

An anti-Christ, he stands for all the negative forces of Satan. At night he has immense powers, but at daybreak all his powers come to naught. He takes on mankind and tries to convert them into vampires. He has been living for centuries feeding on the blood of men. He is revengeful and boasts that he will make all the women in the band, his women. He has already done that with Lucy and his eyes are set on Mina.

Dracula is a very formidable enemy with supernatural powers, but he cannot escape the power of the holy-cross and garlic which are the only two things that scare him and these are the instruments with which he is vanquished.
