Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: When it comes to attachment issues, vampires often have it the worst. They just really want to latch onto the first girl they see, it seems. Radu was a particularly extreme case in point.

History: Long ago, King Vladislas was seduced by a sorceress, and the end result was the cruel and vampiric Radu. One do-over later, he sired the much nicer Stefan. Radu wasn't pleased with parental favoritism, and vowed to kill his brother and find someone to become his fledgling after killing his father. With the help of a few family members and the minions that spawn from his blood, Radu would continue to try and seduce the hapless Michelle to the dark side and claim the Bloodstone, an ancient artifact said to contain the blood of saints.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: Radu has been killed over and over again, but thanks to either luck or his minions, he's always come back for more. But his final death came when he not only got decapitated, but also burnt, robbed of the Bloodstone, and left with his head on a pike baking in the sunlight.

Powers/Abilities: Can travel via shadows, and can summon an army of devilish minions from his blood that follow him without question.

Weakness: Standard vampire weaknesses so long as the minions aren't there to help him.

Scariness Factor: 4-Radu is certainly hideous with that pale skin and those creepily long fingers. There's also that self-mutilation thing he's got going to summon those little demons. Still, his voice is a little hoarse for us to always take seriously.

Trivia: -The minions were originally going to be Romanians in suits, but it was later decided that they would be stop motion instead.

-Radu gets his name from Radu cel Frumos, the brother of Vlad the Impaler himself.

And the creatures are having to drag another woman from the bar back home.

You, sir, need a manicure.

No. Just dead.

Yeah. Awkward.

Still more compelling than Twilight.
A tale as old as...how old is Radu again?

The Minions are even worse by comparison to these loyal devils.

Dance to the tune of being on freaking fire!

"Ask me how I died! DO IT!"

Until redemption do they part.
The Ring-Pop of death!

A typical vampire delicacy that involves a little caution for the tongue.

"Dang it! All we got was this douchy head!"

Nosferatus do, indeed, still exist to this day.

"Enchanted 'totally not a Ring-Pop'! Give me strength!"
