Count Dragoul von Salic is one of the notorious Vampires of Uberwald. He is depicted in the Assassins' Diary as dressed in immaculate evening wear, complete with cape. He rather resembles the actor Christopher Lee in one of his many roles as Dracula. Count Salic is a vampire of the 'old school' and like the old count Bela de Magpyr has not renounced human blood.

He has been killed several times over the centuries, each time by a member of the Wiggs family, all of whom have been fully trained at the Guild of Assassins. The count is currently on the 'active' list once more, and by common agreement the assassins will not take up the contract, having decided that it is only proper that Jocasta Wiggs be allowed to attempt it after she graduates.
