Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
The king of Romania and a hero.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Vlad III completely loses the "refined elegance" possessed in his normal Lancer state.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Differing from his normal self who abhors the image of Dracula and wishes to wipe away the disgrace it caused him, Vlad III embraces it to become "an avatar of calamity who uses his vampiric powers without mercy." He still resents the idea of being summoned in such a state, but he will generously work together with a Master so long as they did not deliberately summon him as a Berserker. Although he can converse properly despite his high level of Mad Enhancement, he requires a truly exceptional Master, or else he will quickly make to suck their blood. He will hold their relationship as that of between a king and retainer until the bitter end.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
First Singularity: Orleans[edit | edit source]
Vlad III appears as an enemy in the singularity where he is known as Berserk-Lancer (バーサーク・ランサー, Bāsāku-Ransā?). He was summoned along with Carmilla, Chevalier d'Eon, Saint Martha, and Atalanta by Gilles de Rais to be Jeanne Alter's Servants in her campaign to destroy France. At a later point, he and the rest of Jeanne Alter's Servants traveled to Lyon, which was protected by Siegfried. Together with his comrades, Vlad III defeated Siegfried, leaving the town to be easily destroyed.
When Ritsuka’s party come to La Charite to gather information about Orleans, they soon encounter Vlad III along with Jeanne Alter and her other Servants. Jeanne Alter orders Vlad and Carmilla to kill Jeanne d’Arc, but the group repel the vampires. Marie Antoinette and Amadeus Mozart arrive to help the group escape, the latter using his Noble Phantasm to repel Jeanne Alter’s Servants. After Jeanne Alter sends Martha after them, Vlad asks her if Martha can handle the group. Although she claims Martha’s Noble Phantasm can destroy the group, Jeanne Alter admits that Vlad is right that she should be cautious. She orders her Servants to continue destroying France, and to kill Ritsuka’s party if they encounter them before leaving. D’Eon asks if the woman with the group was the real Jeanne. Vlad answers their Jeanne is real as well. He then leaves with Carmilla in search of people to drain blood from.
In the climatic battle between Ritsuka’s party and Jeanne Alter’s army, Vlad fights the group with D’Eon, but they’re both defeated. Vlad thinks on the irony of him encountering a "Dragon Slayer" again, noting it is his destiny as evil to be struck down in the presence of a slayer of evil. Accepting his demise, he requests Ritsuka to summon him before finally disappearing.
Halloween Event: Singing Pumpkin Castle Adventure[edit | edit source]
Summoned by Elizabeth Báthory using a fragment of the Grail she found in Orleans, Vlad III welcomes Ritsuka’s party when they encounter him. He comments on Kiyohime’s statement that no Berserker surpasses her in elegance and breeding by saying neither of them can return from the wicked paths they walked. He says it’s time to entertain the group, understanding as the ruler of a nation the importance of a festival. However, a little insulted by Romani Archaman calling him the only sane person in the event, Vlad decides to entertain with a dance of blood. He admits though his talents lies more in embroidery, and offers Mash a lesson so she can decorate Ritsuka’s uniform. After the group slay his monsters, he thanks Elizabeth for creating the event, calling her one of the few Servants that can shamelessly spread such sweet delusions. He reveals Elizabeth possesses a fragment of the Grail that she found in Orleans. He calls it a blessing Elizabeth found it, considering her the most harmless Servant in Orleans. Kiyohime calls Elizabeth not harmless, but Vlad comments Elizabeth has the mind of a child simply seeking her own entertainment. He fights the group but is defeated. Though he comes out of the fight with nary a scratch, Vlad says his role is now done. He tells the group to continue on towards Elizabeth.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Normally summoned as Lancer, being summoned as Berserker is an extremely rare circumstance where "his notoriety is based on the very shame he wishes to erase."
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Mad Enhancement (EX Rank): He's gone mad yet his thoughts are clear, even his wish to the grail remains unchanged. This makes him somewhat of an unusual Berserker, however this is because he fights while accepting his vampiric abilities, which is the biggest abnormality to someone like Vlad.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- Bloodsucking (A Rank): One of Vlad's vampiric abilities. He can turn others into slaves by sucking their blood. The one who has their blood sucked enters a state of living in death, and usually obeys whoever sucked their blood. Also, since this counts not as an attack but rather a show of affection, it cannot be defended against even if you were to posses 'a body which rejects all attacks'.
- Shapeshift (C Rank): One of Vlad's vampiric abilities. He can transform into mist, or countless bats. It's extremely useful while fighting at melee range, but not so much against attacks which cover a wide area.
- Battle Continuation (A Rank): One of Vlad's vampiric abilities. He does not know when to give up. Can fight even after sustaining fatal wounds, his performance receiving no penalty regardless of the state of his body.
Noble Phantasms[edit | edit source]
As a Berserker, Vlad's main Noble Phantasm is Legend of Dracula. By transforming into Dracula, Vlad loses his other Noble Phantasms and Skills, but gains an enourmous boost to his physical abilities, the ability to transform into mist and animals, self-healing, and charming mystic eyes. However he also gains weaknesses to sunlight and holiness. In this class, this Noble Phantasm is always activated by default.
