Excerpt from Liam Hofstadter's report for the Department of Extranormal Phenomena (DEP), Superhuman and Supernatural Threats in the New Millennium:
The vampire, Scrag, was resurrected and released from his tomb by The Devil's Square. It is the assumption of this department that he was raised from his vampiric torpor with the lifeblood of the thirteen corpses found drained at the site of his tomb.
Our research of his tomb indicates a connection between Scrag and Vlad the impaler, Count Dracula. That relationship is one of lethal hostility as sources also indicate that it was Dracula who imprisoned Scrag in the tomb where the Square found him. As to Scrag's identity concurrent with Vlad Tepes, our researchers have a body of possible candidates, but little definitive evidence as Scrag's transformation into a vampire has obviously changed his appearance dramatically. We are also considering the possibility that Scrag was created long after Dracula himself had become a vampire. We will keep you apprised as our research develops.
Scrag's aspect and power base do not match the characteristics of any recorded encounters with modern vampires. With his lineage indicating a connection to one of the first ever recorded Vampyr and his centuries plus age, he is most likely the purest form of vampire this department has ever encountered. As there have been no recorded sightings of Dracula since Stoker's novel, it is the recommendation of this department that Scrag be captured for examination and vivisection.
