Clan Drakul is one of the younger clans of vampires. Sired by Vlad Drakul. A mysterious force swept through recently and eradicated a good deal of the covens. It is said that this was done either by a fanatical vampire slayer or by the Vampire Queen, Aramantha, herself.
It is fairly common knowledge that you can send these vampires to their permanent rest with a stake to the heart. As Vlad Drakul was granted the position of Vampire by the mass murder of hundreds of men by impalement.
