Gabriels Life Story


Gabriel Obtaining The Power Of The Forgotten One - Dracula is a unique Vampire. Carmilla was made when her good half split from her bad half thus creating the Vampire Lord Of Shadow. Dracula was made by draining the life out of Laura and then his new found vampirism mixed with a powerful demon named The Forgotten One. So not only did he gain the power of Laura who was also a very old and powerful vampire but he also gained the power of The Forgotten One a very old and powerful demon.



Dracula vs Trevor - Dracula fights a Paladin named Trevor who he then killed but in the end found out it was his son who he just killed. He then feeds him blood to bring him back but it wasn't showing any progress so he assumed him dead and put him in a coffin with "Alucard" written on it.

Dracula's Important Fights


Dracula vs Trevor - Dracula fights a Paladin named Trevor who he then killed but in the end found out it was his son who he just killed. He then feeds him blood to bring him back but it wasn't showing any progress so he assumed him dead and put him in a coffin with "Alucard" written on it. In this fight we see Dracula using his void sword, Chaos Claws, and mist in very destructive and powerful ways.

Dracula vs Simon and Alucard - So in this fight we see Alucard (Dracula's son Trevor) and Simon (Son Of Trevor) fighting Dracula. Dracula using a lot of his shadow whip in this one, we also see him use his blood dagger in flurrys, we see him use mind control on simon and we see his speed when he dodges strikes from Simon with out even looking. We also see that Dracula can fly for a little bit, he can manipulate his whip to the effect of holding Alucard up in the air for a short while

Dracula vs The Paladin - Here we have Dracula vs A paladin of the Brotherhood of light. We are shown later in the game that Dracula actually took the Paladin down quicker than what is portrayed in this fight. This fight doesn't have much for feats its the beginning of the game and you don't have access to a lot of your powers.

Dracula vs The First Acolyte (round 1) - This fight is interesting because it shows Dracula's ability to think on his feet. He was at a disadvantage speed wise but uses his ability to freeze people to slow her down and get some hits in.

Dracula vs The First Acolyte (Round 2) - Okay round two of the fight is pretty impressive for Dracula as it shows he takes an explosion at pretty close range, He teleports when he needs two like when he got out of her grip and he was able to slice her in half with his sword.

Dracula vs Victor Belmont- This fight is a good one because it shows Dracula vs a champion of the light just like Gabriel used to be. We see some pretty nice stuff from this fight, like Dracula kills the Crystal Demon which prior to that no one has been able to do. At best people could tank it.

Dracula vs The Second Acolyte - This fight is interesting because it shows Dracula's castle weakens people somehow. He was also able to react to Nergal's Lightning attack. And when Nergal possessed The Riders Of The Storm, it showed that Dracula has no problem using his chaos claws to break peoples weapons. He punches his sword across a rather large distant, teleports to it which shows Dracula has no problem teleporting.

Dracula vs Zobek - Dracula vs his "old friend" Zobek, Zobek to the form of the grim reaper. Nothing too special really happens in this fight but it is pretty cool to note if you do not win the QTE in the end, you get to see how a vampire is really supposed to die. We also see how fast the void sword freezes people if the are stabbed with it.

Dracula vs Satan The final fight of the Lords Of Shadow world. This fight isn't really special because Dracula doesn't show his true power or any power really. But we see Dracula's claws are sharp enough to pierce Alucard's armor. We also see that the vampires bodies are strong enough to fall from really high up, hit the ground make a crater and not splatter all over the ground or die.

Dracula's Vampiric Powers


Mist - Mist ability is one of Gabriels abilities

The ability to take the shape of mist is one of the most useful skills a vampire can use. The restrictions of space, which would be obvious for a physical body, disappear completely when applied to an entity made of millions of floating particles. Being able to reach almost anywhere and go unnoticed by enemies means that creatures able to master this technique become true shadows in the night.

This mist a very useful ability for Dracula in a few ways
1) he can get out of traps that have holes in them
2)He can alter the mass of the mist from going around and possibly through people to being kind of solid and lifting people high into the sky

and from what we see in the game when he goes into his mist form he is invisible to his enemies.

Immortality
After Gabriel became a vampire and gained the power of the Forgotten One, he became the immortal Prince of Darkness and took up the moniker Dracul. At the same time, he also maintains his position as God's chosen one, and is thus immune to the divine and holy magic that would typically harm those of his kind. As the new master of the castle, Dracula remained in the world for over nine hundred and sixty six years.

Blood Draining
As a vampire, Dracula can drink his enemies blood to heal himself. By draining the blood of vampires such as Carmilla, Dracula can gain access to their innate powers like Carmilla's mist. Although the carmilla thing could be a special case.

Plague Of Rats
Dracula can shapeshift into a rat that can sneak up or around enemies in order to possess them, or reach certain areas. Dracula can also call upon a swarm of rats around him. This is mainly a stealth skill with no feats if it being dangerous.
Summon Bats

Teleportation
As seen in Mirror of Fate, Dracula can teleport to different locations in an instant while leaving behind traces of his infamous black mist. He does this while eavesdropping on Simon and Alucard and during the final battle with the latter two in which he teleports around his throne while being chased by Alucard. This ability may very well be linked to his Mist Form. In Lords of Shadow 2, Dracula is notably seen to use teleportation against Raisa Volkova and Nergal Meslamstea. He also uses a form of short ranged teleportation involving his in-game dodge move when Zobek's Lieutenant tries to get the drop on him in Victory Plaza.

Possesion
Dracula can use his blood to possess his enemies and force them to fight one another or to take control of them to a limited degree. He can only inhabit a body temporarily, as the power of his blood will quickly kill the host. In Mirror of Fate, he uses a different type of possession is able to take control of Simon without directly inhabiting his body. This form of possession uses some type of black smoke and allows Dracula to manipulate his victims far more efficiently as evidenced by Simon still being fully combat-capable, as opposed to targets in the modern day who are barely able to walk. This form of possession is not seen in Lords of Shadow 2.

Resistance To Holy
A regular knight of the Brotherhood of Light would believe that crucifixes and other holy artifacts can weaken and kill all vampires. However, they have no effect against Dracula as he was once a knight of the brotherhood and God's chosen one. In some instances he can even reflect holy magic back against the caster due to this reason.

Demonic Wings
Similar to the Seraph Shoulders, Dracula can summon wings via his blood magic to double jump. This is due to Dracula imitating the effects of the holy artifacts he had in the previous game, before getting abandoning their use altogether. If these wings are anything like the seraph wings, Dracula can use them for more than a double jump.

Vampire Blood
the curse of the blood means an entire compendium of mysteries for those who have lived long enough to study it. From what little is known, it has been determined that with time it tends to mutate to adapt to the needs of it's carrier, offering new and twisted abilities with which to ensure survival. In the case of Alucard, who lacks the wings common in other members of the species, the blood has improved his power to dominate Vermin to the point of being able to take their shape temporarily. With his skill, the son of Dracula can divide himself into hundreds of bats to reach distant places in less than a heartbeat of his victims.

This "power" is harder to place though because we don't know how his blood could mutate depending on the need but it is an interesting power to say the least.

Dracula's Weapons


The Shadow Whip

Image
Gabriel's deeply rooted training with the Combat Cross remained in Dracula. The Prince of Darkness now uses his own blood, which takes the shape of a sinuous whip, to inflict pain and death wherever he goes. The dark fluid is bounded by a supernatural force, and it hardens on impact. Before they die, its victims feel as if thousands of fangs penetrated their flesh, breaking bones and tearing their life force from them.


The Shadow Dagger
Like the Shadow Whip, Dracula can create projectile daggers from his blood magic. This power refills on its own from Dracula's blood reservoir.

Gabriel has been trained in the use of a whip since his human days and it carries on into his vampire life. He brings back most of his moves also
The Shadow Whip manifests as a red gauntlet on Dracula's right arm. From it the whip springs when he attacks. Like the Combat Cross, it is the only weapon through which Dracula can attain Focus to power the Void and Chaos powers.

Unlike the Combat Cross, the Shadow Whip does not possess any other abilities such as the ability to grapple enemies or objects, or alternate means of killing, like the stake. This could be due to the whip being composed of Dracula's blood only.

The Shadow Whip's appearence depends on Dracula's current level of mastery. At it's basest level, the whip appears as simply a hardened strand of Dracul's corrupted blood. At level 2, the blood takes on a dark maroon color and seems to be augmented with magic. At max mastery, the Shadow Whip becomes a bright, deep red in color and becomes a full on mystical energy whip. It looks similar in appearance to the Vampire Killer's chain whip when augmented with Shadow Magic.

Mastering the Shadow Whip allows Dracula to increase its damage, and to increase the blood enemy drop. It also change the visual effects of the attacks.

The Chaos Claws

Image
The solid walls of the castle were not strong enough to contain the rage and hate that Dracula held inside. Possessed by a yearning for revenge, the Prince of Darkness attacked the pillars of his new home. From its ashes new structures always arose, ever taller than the ones before and, from the burning fires, a blinding flame. In its burning heat the Chaos Claws were forged, filled with contained fury, waiting for their master to unleash their power once again.


Another weapon at draculas disposal would be his chaos claws. These take his already monstrous strength and adds intense heat to them ( some where around 1,300-1,500 sense they can vaporize steel they may be hotter). The claws as said vaporize steel with a single punch, and do the same to the warriors holding the shields.
Chaos Bombs
Several pieces of burning mineral escaped when the Chaos Claws were forged and became trapped in the depths of the fortress. Some creatures searched for them to control the great power of fire that they store inside. However, only the Lord of Vampires is capable of transforming it's power and of projecting it against his enemies.

Gabriel can lob fire bombs from his chaos claws

The Void Sword

Image
Pain and suffering have tormented Gabriel over the centuries following his transformation into the Lord of Darkness, beating his exhausted mind again and again. As his memories submerged into the waters of oblivion, Dracula left his human side behind to overcome the torture, and filled his heart with a cold, dark void. That feeling gave rise to the Void Sword, capable of draining both the nightmares of its owner and the life of everyone that comes in contact with the blade.


The void sword is another one of Gabriels Vampiric weapons. This bright blue sword when it hits opponents damages them and steals some of their life giving it to Gabriel.

Like Light Magic, the Void Sword is able to replenish the life energy of its user while doing damage to opponents. In terms of range it is the middle weapon, shorter than the Shadow Whip but longer than the Chaos Claws. After obtaining the Primordial Void Gem from the head of the Stone Golem, Dracula augmented the Void Sword with elemental powers, creating windstorms to suck opponents into range of his attacks and blasts of freezing Void energy that trap targets in ice.
Mastering the Void Sword allows Dracula to increase its damage, and to increase the efficiency of the Ice powers. It also change the visual effects of the attacks.


This sword along side its vampiric abilities come with the ability to freeze. It can cause blizzards, whirlwinds and the void projections can freeze people. When froze, enemies take more damage from Dracula's other weapons.
Void Projections
The formation of the Void Sword caused impurities that penetrated the deep rock of the Castle. These crystal fragments have kept the secret of ice for centuries while driving the Castle residents mad with it's tempting call. He who can control the power held by one of these crystals will be capable of extending the void energy beyond the sword's edge.
Basically Gabriel can shoot blast from the void sword than can freeze enemies and weapons

Dracula's Physical Ability


Strength
Dracula as a human already had considerable strength, As a vampire, Gabriel's above-normal strength was increased dramatically. Dracula is able to push a large battering ram with little effort, peel off metal parts of a Siege Titan and effortlessly pick up fully armoured soldiers and throw them around.

I was told Gabriel had some kind of gauntlets to increase his strength, not his strength alone. Based on distance, gravity, and whatever else I calculated before, this would end up being 4,007,791.69 newtons that he and Zobek caught. So, now that I think about it, dividing that by 2, making it 2,003,895.845 newtons (225 tons).


He is shown throwing large pieces of metal off of him and large demons around with no shown struggle.

Acid Blood
During Dracula's battle with the Brotherhood, he vomits a great amount of vampire blood into the power source of the Siege Titan. This was powerfully toxic enough to corrupt and destroy the mechanized giant. Also in the DLC content Alucard goes into a room that begins to fill with the blood and if he falls in he is desolved. During the boss fight between Dracula and Trevor Dracula sends blood clouds at Trevor and if Trevor does not dodge them he would be dissolved. Also when using his possession ability he can't stay in the persons body too long because they dissolve after a few minutes.

Speed
Dracula can move inhumanly fast and can easily outmaneuver humans and outrun them. Gabriel also shows this speed when fighting both Alucard and Simon, dodging whip strikes from Simon without even looking.

Durability
Dracula being a vampire and the king of them at that has to be able to take a licking and keep on ticking. Dracula even as a human was shown to be knocked around and get up no worse for wear.
As for Amm0vamp1r3's post, it looks like Dracula and Alucard went at least 8 feet into the ground. So I'm going to calculate this starting with gravitational potential energy. First, this took more than 20 seconds. I'm sure it took around 25 seconds at least. But I only recorded 19.030 seconds because I waited for the part before it showed Dracula falling towards Alucard. Here's gravitational potential energy.

U = mgh, where m is mass, g is gravity, and h is height. I don't know what both Dracula and Alucard's mass is. I'll just go with 90.7185 kg. for Dracula, 88.4505 kg. for Alucard. I'll add those two. Gravity is assumed to be 9.8 N/kg. Using kinematics, the height based on the time for the two to fall is 1,774.49041 m.

U = (179.169 kg.)(9.8 N/kg)(1,774.49041 m.)
U = (1755.8562 N)(1,774.49041 m.)
U = 3,115,749.988239042 N m (This is equal to 744.68 grams of TNT.)

To find the newtons, I need to take the newton-meters and divide it by the distance the two traveled upon impact. Assuming the distance is at least 2.4384 m., I end up with . . .

3,115,749.988239042 N m. / 2.4384 m. = 1,277,784.6080376648622047, or 287,258.76 pounds-force, which is 143.63 tons-force.

Dracula's Sub Weapons


The Dragon Talisman
By collecting 5 dragon scales, Dracula can use the Talisman of the Dragon to transform into a powerful dragon and obliterate his enemies. Interestingly, Dracula seems to be able to partially manifest this form without the Talisman of the Dragon as he does so against the Gorgon sisters.
Image
The dragon form is just like the demon crystal of lords of shadow 2. Dracula activates it and the entire area is covered in flames, and most enemies are killed. But he has shown the ability to used parts of the dragon form with out the dragon talisman
Stolas' Clock
Image
Image

Seal Of Alastor
It can be shattered to unleash the soul of a legendary warrior, Alastor. Once activated, the Seal of Alastor unlocks all of Dracula's weapon skills regardless of his progress. This temporary access to a slew of powerful moves tilts the scales in Dracula's favor while it lasts.
