Strut

Defending Sovereign, Church, and Country from the Forces of Darkness

Let's make no mistake, Vlad Drakulya is a monster, and his monstrousness is made all the worst for his intelligence, ruthlessness, and deliberateness. As such, people are often surprised by just how mischievous he can be. He is a gigantic ham, he has a flair for the dramatic that would put Sherlock Holmes to shame, he is flippant, irreverent, impudent, impertinent, insolent, brash, cocky, and rude, especially to Sir Differel Van Helsing, and he loves to prick her pomposity every chance he gets with a lewd or cutting remark, or a practical joke. As a matter of fact, Sir Differel has likened him to a trickster god, and as she puts it, "I can either play the thunder god and smite him with my hammer, or a poor, put-upon peasant and grin and bear it. It's easier to do the latter." Though if he gets too annoying, she's been known to put a bullet through his head.

In this webcomic we see an example of Vlad's mercurial nature, but we also get a glimpse of Sir Differel's own playful side, which so seldom surfaces. And we are introduced to two new characters: Victor Plunkett, her husband, and Staff Sergeant Giles Holt, her Master of Arms.
