To his surprise, Lisa was not afraid of him, and she encouraged him to explore the changing world. Finding himself attracted to her, Dracula welcomed Lisa into his home. At some point later, Dracula married Lisa. Together they had a son they named Adrian, who would later be known as Alucard. They then lived in a cottage outside of Targoviste , Wallachia , where Lisa continued her research into medicine.

His war council protests the state of the war, particularly the lack of strategy, in which Dracula introduces his Devil Forgemasters, Hector and Isaac, to his council as his newest confidants to lead the war more effectively.

Dracula expresses only disinterest and anger with Godbrand's concerns, which the viking takes as Dracula wanting to die, so he joins his wife and is willing to have every vampire starve in the attempt, thereby confirming that Dracula has gone mad. The situation between the vampires and their lord becomes more complicated when details of the failure in Gresit come to light: that the villagers had help from a Belmont and that Alucard has awoken. Though unconcerned with Alucard, the revelation that a Belmont, one of the few forces in the world that can truly threaten the vampires, remains alive sparks surprise and fear within them.

In this moment, Carmilla makes her move against Dracula, having the majority of her forces storm his castle and kill him. However, her usurpation is crushed as Dracula kills most of her forces and Alucard, Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belnades arrive and kill the vampire generals. Isaac confirms Alucard's presence and that of the Belmont's, advising Dracula to return to his study with the Forgemaster swearing to protect him.
