Dracula

Biographical Information:

  • III Prince of Dracul, Order of the Dragon, of the defense of the Ottoman Empire
  • He goes to battle against the Muslim Turks, leaving his wife, Elizabeta, behind. When Elizabeta receives a letter falsely declaring her husband dead, she jumps into the river below. Before she committed suicide, the Bishop presiding at Dracula's castle proclaims Elizabeta's soul damned to eternal punishment.
  • Returning from his victory over the Turks, Dracula flies into a rage over Elizabeta's death. Furious that God "let" his wife die while defending the Holy Roman Church, he renounces his faith for God and the church. Drawing his sword, Dracula stabs the cross in the castle's chapel, causing it to bleed. He then takes a cup and drinks the blood flowing from the cross, proclaiming he will be reborn after his death to drink from the blood of the living.

Justification:

Dracula, as a sick and twisted human being & a sadistic murderer, is clear. But, with that, he was still a flawed character with morals that could be challenged by any sort of loss. He sacrificed and renounced his religion and his faith in God, over the death of his beloved wife. When meeting her reincarnation, Mina Harker, he was conflicted with a painful decision. Leave his wife to become the very thing he was condemned to for all eternity or leave her to die.
