Vlad II, also known as Vlad Dracul or Vlad the Dragon, was Voivode of Wallachia in the 15th century and is best known for being Vlad III Dracula's father. He is first mentioned in Blood Rites.
In the seriesEdit
In Blood Rites, Ebenezar McCoy refers to him as a half mortal. Harry Dresden confuses him for his son, Vlad the Impaler, but McCoy asserts that Dracula was a pale comparison, and only became a Black Court vampire as a form of teenage rebellion against his father, Vlad Drakul. McCoy states Drakul himself is formidable, dangerous, and cruel, often referring to him as a "creature". He also states that Jared Kincaid was the servant of Drakul, known in that capaity as the Hound of Hell, or simply, the Hellhound.
