A vampire of the Magpyr family. Carmilla is noted as Vlad de Magpyr's aunt. She was said to bathe in the blood of up to two hundred virgins at one time. This statement has been doubted by Lacrimosa, who had this to say: "Use more than eighty virgins and even a very large tub will overflow." Its these little details that make all the difference. Of course, the mob didn't seem to care.

A very severe woman, she was fond of figure-hugging black dresses and wore deep-plum lipstick.


A far more sinister figure than Carmilla. But the real parallel is drawn to Elizabeth Bathory, who kidnapped maidens and bathed in their blood. Apparently it was a good cosmetic.
