How Count Dracula joined the Tourney
Originally a human called Mathias Cronqvist, Dracula fell into madness after the death of his first wife, and became an immortal vampire thanks to the powers of the Crimson Stone. With his dark powers, he built his army of creatures and his fortress, Castlevania. Since the 11th Century, the Belmont Clan stood in opposition to Dracula, and legendary warriors confronted him each time he came back from the dead. He was eventually definitively destroyed in 1999 by the last descendant of the Belmonts.
However, a member of the Black Black Club angry with Sakyo returned Dracula to full life. This member of the club was Butajiri, who resorted to using any means to get what he wants. Dracula's orders were to kill Sakyo and the Toguro Brothers at the Tourney, including the Elder Toguro. Dracula still retains his own ambitions sectretly.
