Van Helsing: Dracula [INTJ 8w7]

Function Order: Ni-Te-Fi-Se

Dracula has spent years (maybe decades?) fixating on the end result he has pictured in his mind—the ability to reproduce ‘children,’ and he has put all his efforts toward that end—devising a plan to generate enough electricity to power his children’s continued survival; the years it took to create Frakenstein as a power source; in creating a werewolf anti-serum, even luring Van Helsing and Carl to a vampire ball full of his spawn to get what he wants, and he devalues reality in the meantime (if he creates a bunch of immortal demon-spawn, eventually they will run out of humans for food, and then what?). He’s attempting to ensure the survival of himself, his brides, and their children, and he stops at nothing to achieve what he wants; recruiting and training his ‘minions’ to do his will, enabling Dr. Frankenstein to create his Monster, preparing a werewolf anti-serum in case one turns against him, and eliminating the family with the power to destroy him one by one. He becomes angry when his ruthless efficiency fails due to others’ intentions or lack of understanding. He shows flits of emotionalism, but if one wife dies, he’ll just replace her. Dracula makes a banal attempt to persuade Van Hesling to his side when it becomes apparent he intends to destroy Dracula, before he will engage in hand-to-hand combat with him. Dracula seems to devalue and hate the outside world—instead of teaching his children to feed himself, he tells his wives to do it and remains safe at the castle. He avoids dealing directly with Van Helsing until it’s inevitable, preferring to keep his distance and engage in psychological warfare. He leaves the physicality of protecting the castle to his wives until he has no choice but to morph into his bat form and fight for his life against the werewolf. He fails hard when he has to use his environment to fight.

Enneagram: 8w9 sp/so

Dracula exerts his power over others whenever possible, and has a good ability to sense when it’s the right time to take a direct action and when he should hold back out of a sense of self-preservation. He cultivates and supports Frankenstein’s work, until it becomes apparent that the villagers intend to kill him for ‘grave-robbing,’ and then he turns against him, stealing his Creature (or attempting to) and killing him. He has a quick temper and easily cows his wives through his aggressive tactics, but also is somewhat apathetic and inert. He doesn’t want to exercise much effort in the outside world, stays close to home, and tries to pacify Van Helsing when it becomes apparent that he cannot control him or manipulate him into siding with them.
