Legend of Dracula: The Succession of Blood (鮮血の伝承, Rejendo obu Dorakyuria: Senketsu no Denshō?) is an ability Vlad III gained through the distortion of his heroic legend, allowing him to alter his aspect to become the vampire modeled after him. In exchange for the sealing of his normal skills and Noble Phantasms, all attributes are boosted, and he obtains the capacity to shape shift into mist and assorted animals. Being in nature similar to a Dead Apostle, he possesses the Curse of Restoration and the Mystic Eyes of Enchantment, as well as weaknesses against daylight and holy symbols.

Vlad III, the Lord Impaler
He is the lord impaler of the Principality of Wallachia. Motivated by a love of his nation and a duty to maintain its sovereignty and power, he purged all who would oppose its interests. Though there is an aura of danger about him, he in fact possesses a modest and considerate personality; but his opinions and unrestrained manner of expression lend easily to the impression that he is a sociopath who has disengaged himself from the standard mores of society. He tries to ignore the reputation of the vampire modeled after him in a mature manner -- but somehow, representations of him that he comes across will end up being destroyed.

This is the real man (1431-1476) who was the model for the legend of Dracula. He had a very clear sense of justice but was also brutal, as he executed about one fifth of the population of his country through his life. His homeland, Wallachia, was a small country stuck between the large nations of Turkey and Hungary. He led a tragic life, during which he murdered his father, buried his older brother alive, and went to war against his younger brother. His war against Turkey was a desperate battle including guerrilla warfare and scorched earth tactics, and several times, he left mountains of Turkish enemy soldiers he impaled. He was captured in Hungary due to political circumstances, and spent 12 years in prison. Then, in 1476, he turned his back on Orthodox Church and converted his country to Catholicism; the same year, he died in battle against the Turkish army and his younger brother Radu. He was 45.

Capacity of the Servant to mark a region as his personal dominion by securing the surrounding leylines prior to an engagement, permitting reinforcement of his combat capabilities when fighting in defense. Kazikli Bey is a Noble Phantasm that may be deployed only within the marked domain.
- Kazıklı Bei: The Lord of Execution
A noble phantasm deployable only within the Servant's marked domain. Within a range of 1 kilometer, a maximum of 20 thousand pikes can gradually manifest over time, bursting from the ground to impale opponents. Manifested pikes remain as a physical barrier that eliminates free ground, and evasion thus becomes less likely with passage of time. The sight of the pikes impose a curse-like psychological effect, destabilizing an opponent's mental condition with oppressive anxiety or fear.
