A famous hero in Romanian history. A noble warrior who maintained the independence of Wallachia was as far as being described as the shield of the Christian world. He is Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia also known as Dracula.
From the start, Dracula was nothing but the popular name most habitually used to refer to the lord of Wallachia, Vlad III. Strictly speaking, it was Wladislaus Drakwlya. Standpoint-wise, because he was a duke appointed by the Eastern Roman Empire, he signed under the Roman-style. This derived from the fact that his father, Vlad II, was a member of the Order of the Dragon (among a total of 24 members), which was established by the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund, who called himself Dracul (dragon lord). In other words, because he was the child of Dracul, the a pronunciation that holds the meaning "child" was added at the end thus becoming Dracula.
Incidentally, the purpose of the Order of the Dragon was to protect the Christian world from the Islamic influence. There is the possibility that Vlad III took up the name of Dracula as a form of declaration of the intention of succeeding his father will and safeguarding the Christian world.
The person who became one of the most famous monsters in the present world. It can be said to be the greatest sample-case of a literary work that distorted reality...but it is also a fact that not all can be categorized as insolence of the writer. Vlad III did not choose the means to defend the independence of Wallachia and was loathed as a devil by the Turkish.
Year of 1462
Known as his greatest impaling, but at the same time a defensive war against the Turkish invasion. Because he had to oppose 150,000 Turkish troops that were like raging waves with an army of just 10,000, he instructed the use of scorched earth-tactics and guerrilla warfare. After making the populace escape to the Carpathian Mountains, going as far as emptying the capital city, he ambushed the Turkish forces. At that time, what stood in the surroundings of the capital city of Bucharest was the impaled figures of over 20,000 Turkish soldiers.
A swarm of countless impaled dead bodies in surrounded the citadel of Bucharest. Before such a sight and the offensive smell, the Turkish soldiers - commended for their bravery - had their morale completely crushed. Even the valorous Mehmed II, who was called "The Conqueror", was said to have withdrawn his army saying:
"I am not frightened by any man, but a devil is an exception"
—Mehmed II the Conqueror
The field of impaled soldiers at that time was three kilometers in length and one kilometer in width. Even during the occupation of Wallachia by the Ottoman Empire years later, the autonomy of the region continued to be recognized because of this trauma.
Rationality made into brutality. A warrior with an extension of vision above humans. However, he was not blessed with sympathizers and ended his life in despair due to betrayal. But that is the truth of Vlad III. If one is to remain unrewarded in spite of having this much talent, surely it is not unreasonable to end up losing the sanity because of that?
In order to protect Wallachia from the Turkish army, he enforced discipline on the nobles that ruined the realm and sentenced 20,000 soldiers of the opposing Turkish army to impalement, but was betrayed by the nobles due to the implementation of a doctrine of rigorous measures. His death came in the form of assassination by the Wallachian nobles that were his subordinates at the age of 46.
A demon that sucks blood.
Under the assumption that it is not a living being created by the Lord, it was painted as an easy to understand antagonist by a certain religious view. Described as drinking the blood of humans, not growing old, being immortal and accompanied by many beasts.
Lancer's appearance is that of a warrior or knight in his late 40's with slightly long, light gray hair coupled with blood red eyes and a beard. He wears black armor, the left side of which is almost completely stained with blood, and a crimson red tattered cape attached to the front.
Like his master, Lancer is a deranged individual with twisted notions of love, expressing his feelings when killing his opponent. He shows great affection towards his Master, referring to her as his "wife". The reason for his personality and affections towards his master can be blamed for his skill, Protection of the Faith, which increasingly degrades a Servant's sanity and personality the higher its rank (his being ranked A+++).
The player will face him and his Master, Lanrukun, in the 4th Round if the player chooses to save Rin during her Elimination Battle with Rani.
True to his title as "the Impaler" and as a Lancer-class Servant, Vlad III is highly-skilled in the use of polearms. He also enjoys additional protection granted to him by his Protection of the Faith skill ranked A+++ at the expense of his sanity.
While other servants of his class typically possess high agility, Vlad is instead fairly slow in exchange for paramount defensive power. Despite this, when met in the Coliseum he dives at the player and their servant from atop a nearby rock.
Kazikli Bey: The Fortress of Impalement is his signature move. He surrounds the area around him and his opponent with countless spears and polearms of different kinds, doing so until the enemy is eventually impaled before throwing his own spear at them. In Fate/Extra, the attack ignores defense and inflicts the "Sacrifice" debuff on the target, causing heavy damage at the end of each turn and disappearing only when removed by a spell, skill, or item that removes status ailments, or letting the target's HP drop to 1.
