Vlad Tepes is an apostle and the main villain of Berserk: The Prototype, a short story released in 1988.

Appearance Edit

Vlad appears a generous looking man at first glance, a somewhat heavyset man with a bald head with a wide smile and adorned in royal robes. He wears a ruffled cape with fur around the collar and at the base just around the shoulders, that passes all the way through the front and back. He also wears a crown with a large jewel on the front.

In his apostle form, he grows to a bestial size. His head sports a upward slanted nose and a wide mouth aligned with many teeth. He also gains horns, which curve upwards. His arms have become long and lanky and his legs become goat-like, having grown fur and ending in cloven feet. In addition to this, his upper body appears to be more of a rough texture.

Personality Edit

He cares nothing for human life and takes pleasure in torturing them before they die. To this degree, he is shown as a cold and ruthless man who spares no one, especially women. He is also very cocky, believing himself to be more than a match for any human.

Story Edit

Notes Edit

  • Vlad the Impaler, better known by his posthumous name, Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler in English), was a ruler of Wallachia infamous for his cruelty and his practice of impaling his enemies. He was also known by his patronymic name, Dracula, which means "Son of the Dragon" (after his father, Vlad Dracul), and was the namesake of the famous vampire Dracula, from the Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.
