Dracula is a fictional character in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, a staple of the vampire depiction.

Overview

Written by Bram Stoker, Dracula tells a story of Count Dracula, a centuries-old vampire haunting London fought by Van Helsing.

Shortly before 2012, Cecil Adams was nicknamed "The Count" by the criminal underworld of Starling City due to having a modus operandi similar to vampires (leaving his victims with two scars on their necks, a result of his two-needle syringe he used to inject them with his experimental drug), referencing Count Dracula as well.[2]
