|The name or term "Dracula" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Dracula (disambiguation).|
There have been numerous adaptations of the novel into other media. A 1992 film sometimes titled Bram Stoker's Dracula depicts Dracula becoming a vampire after the death of his beloved, Elisabeta.
In the late 19th century, English solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to finalise a real estate transaction with Count Dracula. Dracula is purchasing property in London in order to begin a systematic takeover of the British Empire. Dracula travels to England and feeds on the blood of young Lucy Westenra. Despite the efforts of her three suitors, Arthur Holmwood, Quincy Morris and John Seward, and the Dutch doctor Abraham Van Helsing, Lucy dies and rises as a vampire. She is destroyed and Dracula turns his attentions to her friend, Mina, the wife of Harker (who has escaped from Dracula's castle and married her in Transylvania). Dracula is pursued back to the castle and is stabbed by Quincy, who dies in the final showdown. The Harkers name their son Quincy in his memory.
In the Castlevania seriesEdit
- Dracula's revenge against God is for the death of his first wife Elisabetha, and his war against humanity is due to the death of his second wife, Lisa (a name derived from Elizabeth). It is possible that both these Castlevania characters have names derived from the character in the successful film.
- Quincy Morris, who kills Dracula in the novel, is the father of Castlevania: Bloodlines protagonist John Morris, and grand-father of Jonathan Morris from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.
- There is a is a 2009 novel Dracula: The Un-Dead, which is written by Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker's great grand-nephew, and Ian Holt, with Bram Stoker's original notes. It is the official sequel of Dracula. It is presumably not considered to be part of the Castlevania timeline.
