1980-PRESENT

 

1984

California   John Lawrence “Jack” Talbot, frees his sister from her suspended animation.

  Once they are sure that she does not share the family curse, Melissa (Lissa) Maureen Russell goes on to live a normal life, eventually getting married to a nice, normal man named Kevin Osbourne. At last report they had a son named Jordan in 1992 and seem to be happy.


John Lawrence
however, seems to sadly accept his fate,and takes up the trade as a claims adjuster,and moves from town to town always keeping one step ahead of our group and other monster hunting organizations. Many members of the League whose path’s have crossed with members of the Talbot family have regretted the fact, that they are dedicated to destroying them, if they carry the curse of lycanthropy.

 

  Hopes persist that a cure may someday be found.

 

1985

  Birth of Connor Corrigan to Patrick and Rachel (van Helsing) Corrigan.

 

1988
 

 

 Birth of Katherine Corrigan to Patrick and Rachel (van Helsing) Corrigan.

 

1996

  After her husband Patrick, and son Connor, are killed in a car wreck (and we have our suspicions as to who orchestrated this tragedy) Dr. Rachel van Helsing-Corrigan, becomes a member of the group known as the Legacy, a group in many way’s like that of the League of Anti-Diabolists.

 

1997
  A member of the League of Anti-Diabolists observes an episode of the Jerry Springer show which features the alleged, ‘Mother of a werewolf baby’.

  The League sends an agent to investigate and discovers that this woman was briefly married to John Lawrence Talbot and that the infant, named Luke is Talbot’s son.

  

  The child is removed from his uncaring mother and sent to live with League members Cameron and Jenny Harmon Sanchez, in New York city.

 

1998

La Mirada Fla   Lawrence Stewart Talbot is revived and finds himself fighting Dracula-Lejos and Henry Frankenstein’s Monster once more.

  He seemingly destroys Dracula. Later he convinces his friend, Caroline Cook to impale him with silver once more putting him into his semi death. Cook buries Talbot in the grounds of her castle, hoping one day to find a cure for his condition. *


Soon after these events, the United States government is informed of the LaMirada incident.

  This, combined with the appearances in the Amazon jungle of the Gill-Man in 1997, ** the reemergence of Godzilla in Tokyo, (See Mike Cerasini’s report GODZILLA RETURNS) and general fear of the encroaching millennium provokes certain government officials to take control of the League of Anti-Diabolists.

  Their first action is the removal of Prof. Damien Harmon as the leader and replacing him with Prof. Margaret Walsh, a long time member of several Black Ops organizations.

  Walsh moves the main Headquarters from New York city to Sunnydale CA. (a location where many horrifying, supernatural events seem to occur).

  The organizations name is changed to ‘The Initiative’ and elderly experienced scholars and the ragtag dedicated monster hunting misfits, are replaced with cold unfeeling scientists and youthful, unquestioning soldiers. (Physically enhanced by Walsh, and her scientist, using similar methods to those developed in the 1940’s by Dr. Reinstein and Dr. Peter Drury.)

*See agent Jeff Rovin’s report, RETURN OF THE WOLFMAN)
(There is a follow up report by David Jacobs entitled THE DEVIL’S BROOD, which relates some of the events that took place, soon after, involving Countess Marya Zeleska, and these events will soon be included in the timeline)

**See NOTES ON THE GILL-MAN OF THE UPPER AMAZON by Prof. Michael D. Winkle

 

2000

The World   After the shattering events of this fateful year, (See reports GODZILLA 2000, by M. Cerasini, NIGHT WORLD by F. Paul Wilson, BURIAL, by Graham Masterton and other file’s dealing with numerous catastrophes that plagued our world), remaining ex-members of the League of Anti-Diabolists, reform and start anew creating M.O.N.S.T.A.A.H.

  We rededicated ourselves to our Herculean task of saving the world from the Monstrous Spawn of Evil.

 

 

2002

  Research is being conducted into Donald Glut’s New Frankenstein Files by Professor Win Scott Eckert and myself, and the findings will be added to this timeline at a future date.

  Prof. Eckert however has reported his conclusions in his WOLD NEWTON timeline, and I have ascertained that his theories so far are correct.

1964

U.S.A.  The League of Anti-Diabolists makes it’s first attempt at rehabilitating the creatures we observe.

  The League makes a family unit out of Dr. Peter Frederick Frankenstein’s Monster, his wife Lilith, Lilith’s father Grimpod and an orphan boy named Edmond Glendon who had the curse of Lycanthropy.

  League member Dr. Marilyn Krogh, acted more or less, as a live in social worker, to help them assimilate, and to keep them from the clutches of Dracula-Prime.

  Dr. Krogh is eventually accepted as a loved, member of the family. This project was deemed successful by most standards.

 

1965

Boneport, LA.  Birth of future MONSTAAH agent Charles “Chuck” Loridans.

Prof. Chuck ‘The Magnificent Bastard’ Loridans

Mexico.   Baron Brakola is destroyed by El Santo the descendent of his old foe El Caballero En Mascarado De Plata ( The Silver Masked Horseman) *

Los Angeles, California.  Antique collectors bring from Castle Dracula several furnishings bought from Zoltan Dracula, a human descendant of the Count’s. Among these items is the coffin of Prince Mamuwalde.

1966

Transylvania.  Agents from the criminal organization known as T.H.R.U.S.H stage an operation in Castle Dracula, they are foiled in their plans by L.O.A.D. agent Forest J. Ackerman, Zoltan Dracula, and two agents from the spy agency known as U.N.C.L.E.

  Our first report of this event came from agent Ackerman himself. Later it was revealed in a file donated from U.N.C.L.E. *

  That the two U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuriakin actually received a communiqué from Dracula-Prime, himself. Dracula had obviously been awoken from his hibernation by the goings on in his castle. It was also learned from the U.N.C.L.E. report that the two agents had stumbled upon Dracula-Primes secret resting place.

  If L.O.A.D. Agent Ackerman had known this at the time he could have learned the location, and destroyed the Dark Prince, perhaps once and for all. Unfortunately Solo and Kuriakin were not aware that Ackerman was an agent of L.O.A.D. so they saw no reason to debrief him.

 

California.   That same year James and Anna Summers are killed in what is reported as a car accident. However an agent of L.O.A.D with the knowledge that James was a member of the van Helsing family, investigated the corpses and found the unmistakable marks, of a vampires fangs. Their daughter Jaime was in the automobile with them but whatever she witnessed traumatized her to such an extant, that she blanked out most of her memory.

  The amnesia appears to have been selective wiping out, fortunately for her how her parents died, yet it also tragically removed her memories of the existence of her younger brother Hank. (Who thankfully was at the Summers, Ojai, CA. residence with a sitter)

  The van Helsing family, in order to protect the children, decide that keeping them separated might insure their safety, and sent Jaime to live with Jim and Helen Elgin, friends of James and Anna. The location of where Hank Summers was sent is still a secret. Jaime and Hank’s existence were also kept from each other, using drastic measures such as changing the spelling of Jaime’s last from Summers to Sommers. **

 

  *See David McDaniel’s file, THE VAMPIRE AFFAIR.

  ** James Sherrard has a complete dossier updating Jaime Sommers life after this tragedy.

  As the events surrounding James and Anna Summers death, and the fact that Jaime has a younger sibling, are top secret, and unknown even to her, it is no surprise that Mr. Sherrard’s file does not reflect our information.

THE BIONIC WOMAN FILES

 

1968

  Death of Kurt and Anna van Helsing. Their remains are found in a plane wreck along with their very frightened daughters by Kurt’s brother Conrad van Helsing. Puncture marks are found on the necks of the two corpses.

  The three van Helsing sisters are for the most part physically unharmed. However, Vanessa is so traumatized by witnessing this event, she is committed to an asylum. Rachel, becomes the ward of Quincy Harker, and Jessica, goes to live with her grandfather Lorimar.

  Conrad, is mislead with false clues that a female vampire with the unlikely name of Vampirella is responsible for his brother’s death and with the help of his oldest son Adam begins a quest to track down the vampiress. *

 

  One of the League’s investigator’s later uncovered more clues that it was actually vampire minions of Dracula, himself that caused this brutal murder and that it is connected to the 1966 slaying of James and Anna Summers.

  *For more info on Vampirella, read the vast research done by Agent Ackerman as well as THE ORIGIN OF VAMPIRELLA by Lewis, Budd and Jose Gonzales and Professor Small’s KISS OF THE VAMPIRE

 

1969

  Rachel van Helsing joins her guardian Quincy Harker in his war against Dracula’s minions and becomes an expert with a crossbow.

  In one of her adventures she saves the life of Taj Nital, a native of India. Taj becomes Rachel’s loyal friend and ally fighting always by her side. *

 

Bulgaria  An expedition headed by Prof. John Margrave, discovers a strange statuette resembling a wolf in a remote Bulgarian mountain cave.

  Margrave takes the sculpture back to his home in California. Research on the object, reveals that it is actually a talisman.

  Legend has it that the talisman allows it’s wielder to transform partly or completely into a wolf at anytime. If the talisman’s owner is already afflicted with the curse of Lycanthrope, he may control or prevent transformation. The talisman is placed in Prof. Margraves study, amongst many other curious artifacts and forgotten. **

  *See R. Thomas, and M. Wolfman’s file THE TOMB OF DRACULA.

  **See agent Frank Belknap Longs file THE NIGHT OF THE WOLF.

 

1970

London.  The Denrom Soul-Clones’ ashes and the Star-Stone Ring are brought to England by Johnny Alucard, one of Dracula’s minions who has become the leader of a group of rebellious, trouble seeking teens.

  Alucard leads the youths in a ceremony that revives Denrom, who after resurrection begins to feast on the citizens of modern day England.

  One of Alucard’s young disciples happens to be Jessica van Helsing. Jessica’s grandfather and guardian, Prof. Lorimar van Helsing soon catches wind and promptly dispatches Dracula-Denrom. *

  Soon after the Dark Prince’s minions revive Dracula-Denrom once more.

  Dracula-Denrom uses his dark connections and some of the vast gold hidden beneath Castle Dracula to become a Howard Hughes-type property tycoon, using the name DD. Denham. As Denham, Dracula-Denrom, begins a new fiendish plan.

 

  That same year, Conrad and Adam van Helsing finally have their encounter with Vampirella.

  Vampirella, relates to Adam how it was not her but a minion of Dracula’s called Father Jonas, who was responsible for Kurt and Anna’s death convincing, Adam of her innocence. Conrad, however, does not believe her.

  Adam and Vampirella decide to work together as a team fighting the minions of Dracula and other supernatural menaces. Father Jonas is eventually tracked down and the truth is revealed.

  Conrad is still suspicious of Vampirella until League of Anti-Diabolists agent Ackerman vouches for her.

 

New York City   Prof. Damien Harmon has been waging a secret war against evil using his vast wealth, knowledge and evolving telepathic abilities.

  To aid him in his endeavors he has used a variety of agents including a former circus strong man to do his foot work. Each agent is lost in the line of duty.

  Harmon uses his connections to free from prison, a former New York city cop, named Cameron Sanchez. Sanchez who was framed, for a crime he did not’t commit, becomes Prof. Harmon’s trusted ally, possessing great strength and a keen mind. **

 

 

 

  *See agent Alan Gibson’s file misleading title DRACULA A.D. 1972. Why this date was given to this file is unknown at this time, but our records definitely show the date of this event as 1970.

  **See Prof. Harmon’s file, as edited by Robert Lory, DRACULA RETURNS

 

1971

Mexico.   El Santo defeats the plans of Dr. Freda Frankenstein, (The Daughter of Dr. Irving Frankenstein) and her assistant, Dr. Yanco.

  Freda constructed a creature out of different corpses, called Ursus and brings it to life.

  Another of her creations, Truxon, a half-man, half-gorilla, is kept under control by Freda’s hypnotic powers.

  El Santo makes friends with the creature Ursus and together they defeat Freda Frankenstein, Dr. Yanco and Truxon. Ursus sacrifices his life to help El Santo. *

London.   Dracula-Denrom, as D.D. Denham, finds his plot to release a deadly new Bubonic plague virus on the world is halted by Lorimar and Jessica van Helsing.

  The Denrom-Clone, is as far as our reports show, destroyed once and for all. **

  In a follow up report, Lorimar van Helsing, stated that he believed the Denrom Clone must have at some point during his recent resurrection, lost Dracula-Primes’ mental hold, and the plan to kill all life through a plague was an insane way of gradually ending the clones own life through lack of fodder.

 

  That same year, Rachel van Helsing having breezed through college receives her doctorate in parapsychology.

 

California   John Lawrence ‘Jack’ Russell aka John Lawrence Talbot, turns 25 and discovers that he has inherited the curse of lycanthropy.

  After his first change, his mother, Milliza reveals the truth, about his real father.

  Seeking to find a cure for himself and for his younger sister Melissa (Lissa) Maureen Russell, whose 25th birthday, is less then a year after his and might suffer from the same curse, ‘Jack’ Russell embarks on a journey filled with horrific adventure.

 

California.  Unknown to Jack, or any of the tragic, Talbot family, events transpire in a small California village, concerning their affliction.

  Prof. John Margrave is found murdered in his home. The murder weapon left behind is a Wolfshead Cane use as a cudgel. The murderer is revealed to be a Bulgarian, Lycanthrope calling himself Mr. Ruschna.

  Ruschna, was seeking the transformation talisman taken away from his Bulgarian cave, sanctuary by Margrave years before. Ruschna succeeds in slaying friends and colleagues of Margraves while searching for the talisman.***

  It is my theory that the man calling himself Ruschna, was in fact Bela Blasco, son of Dracula-Lajos and Melava the Gypsy, and that the cane was in fact the same scepter, originally bestowed upon Bela by his father, and temporally in the possession of Lawrence Stewart Talbot so many years prior.

1972

Mexico   Dracula’s Mexican soul clone and his servant Rex Rufus, The Werewolf are resurrected by an evil Hunchback, named Eric. Fortunately, El Santo and his crime fighting partner Blue Demon are on hand to destroy him. Unfortunately, the destruction of another soul clone returns more power to Dracula-Prime. *

 

  Later that year Frank Drake revives Dracula Prime who is now at full power.

  Drake enlists the aid of Jon Quincy Harker, who founds a new League of Anti-Diabolists, comprised of Drake, Dr. Rachel van Helsing, Taj Nital, detective Hannibal King, and the once solo vampire hunter known only as Blade.

  This core group tracks Dracula-Prime all over the globe thwarting him and his evil plans at every turn **

  ** See file Santo y Blue Demon contra Drácula y el Hombre Lobo

  ** See files marked as THE TOMB OF DRACULA by Harold H. Harold, edited by R. Thomas, and M. Wolfman.

  When reading these reports, keep in mind that Mr. Harold, who chronicled these events, was basically a groupie of van Helsing and co. and as he did with reports of John Lawrence Talbot substituted popular comic book heroes in place of some of the real people involved.

 

1973

Mexico   El Santo and Blue Demon foil the plot of 93 year old Dr. Irving Frankenstein. (Son of Victoria Marie Frankenstein, and Jesse James) who has been transplanting the brains of women into the skulls of another women and vice versa. The operations fail but instead of disposing of the bodies secretly, Frankenstein reanimates them and sends them out into the street.

Thank God for El Santo and Blue Demon.*

 

New York City  Prof. Damien Harmon, and Cameron Sanchez are visited, in their headquarters by a mysterious woman named Ktara.

  She entices them to journey to Transylvania and resurrect her master, Dracula-Latos, from his crypt and to use him as a tool in their battle against evil.

  Harmon and Sanchez begin preparations constructing several complex devices, and converting Harmon’s West Hampton mansion, to their needs.

 

Transylvania   Ktara leads Prof. Harmon and Sanchez to their goal deep in the bowels of Castle Dracula the stake impaled body of the Latos Soul-Clone.

  Harmon before removing the stake cuts a sliver from it and attaches it to a previously constructed device, which is surgically implanted next to the heart of Dracula-Latos. The stake is then removed from the Soul-clone, and he awakens.

  It is explained to the angry vampire that Harmon can use his telepathic abilities to trigger the implanted device to insert the wooden sliver into the Count’s Undead heart at will rendering him lifeless. If Harmon is killed, the device will automatically insert the sliver.

  Dracula-Latos, unwillingly becomes Prof. Harmon’s weapon in missions against Mob activities and supernatural menaces.

  Harmon also develops a form of synthetic blood which the Latos-clone begrudgingly drinks to survive. **

  It is obvious from these reports that the Latos-Clone believes himself to be Dracula-Prime, this is due to two factors.

  First, as Dracula-Prime is at this point walking the Earth engaged in his nefarious schemes and battling the League of Anti-Diabolists he is no longer controlling the Latos-Clone. (As he is so preoccupied, it is possible that he is unaware of the clones revival)

  Second, the woman Ktara, who claims to have been Dracula’s servant for centuries.

  There are still many unanswered questions about this woman. She not only has the ability to transform herself into a cat*** but is an immensely powerful telepath.

  It is possible that she controlled much of the Latos-Clones thoughts, even planting the idea that Dracula, existed long before the historical birth of Vlad Tepes. ****

 

 

Europe   John Lawrence ‘Jack’ Talbot battles Dracula-Prime over the possession of an accent tome called the ‘Darkhold’.

To Dracula this book merely means more power, but to John Lawrence it means a possible cure to his curse. *****

  Even after the battle, John Lawrence Talbot does not end his curse. To protect his sister, Melissa (Lissa) Maureen Russell, (even though, the curse seems to have skipped her) Talbot uses methods he learned from the Darkhold to place her into suspended animation.

 

  *from SANTO Y BLUE DEMON CONTRA EL DR. FRANKENSTEIN.

**See Prof. Harmon’s files, as edited by Robert Lory, starting with DRACULA RETURNS

  ***Prof. Power and I have theorized about Ktara, wondering if she might be connected to the ancient Serbian race of Cat People as seen in the notes of Dr. Judd, as edited by Val Lewton.

  In the 1960’s, a member of MONSTAAH was helped in an assignment by a mysterious gentleman known only as, Mr. Seven.

  Our agent reports that he witnessed a black House Cat transformed into an attractive human woman, then back into a cat, and seemed to be assisting Mr. Seven.

  Our operative never got a chance to investigate this further as Mr. Seven and the cat disappeared upon the missions completion.

  Prof. Power feels there may be a link from Mr. Sevens cat, and Ktara.

  **** Research is under way now, into clues that the entity known as Dracula, may indeed have existed before the birth of Vlad Tepes.

  Vlad Tepes himself might be the host of a force dating back to before the time of Atlantis.

  When this theory is fleshed out, it will be added to this timeline and possibly shake the very foundations of MONSTAAH scholarship as we know it.

  ***** See Harold H. Harold’s files TOMB OF DRACULA and WEREWOLF BY NIGHT as edited by M. Wolfman and D. Moench.

 

1974

USA   League of Anti-Diabolists member, Dr. Everette Scott investigates rumors we received, about a cult engaging in Frankenstein like experiments, in a small town. Dr. Scott took the case because a family member of his was involved. When Dr. Scott returned he never filed a report, refused to discuss the matter and retired from the League soon after. We may never know what transpired there.

 

1975

New York  After completing numerous missions for Prof. Damien Harmon, the Latos-Clone seems to have under gone a tremendous attitude change. The contributing factor, as Prof. Harmon explained, were the good acts performed by the vampire nurtured the remnants of Dr. Edelmann’s soul that he received in 1945.

  Ktara, dislikes this change in the Latos-Clone, and soon departs. Away from Ktara’s influence Latos comes to the realization the he is but a Clone of Dracula-Prime’s. He then willingly lets Prof. Harmon put him under hypnosis and much is learned.

  The reports Prof. Harmon wrote, derived from this hypnosis session, provide much of the information included in this article, filling in the gaps that were previously unknown, including not only the basis for my Animus Klonos Theorem, but also details relating to the Star-Stone artifacts and Dracula and Melava’s children.

  When Prof. Harmon is completely convinced of the Latos-Clones rehabilitation he removes the implant, and allows the vampire to leave providing him with a large supply and the formula for the synth-blood.

Tibet   After extensive research on the Glendon case, John “Jack” Lawrence Talbot and Waldemar Daninsky join the LaCombe expedition to Tibet.

  Prof. LaCombe’s team were there to track down the Yeti, Talbot and Daninsky were interested in this, but their main objective was to find the famed Moon Flower which could possibly cure their shared malady.

The ill fated expedition winds up with Talbot left for dead, and Daninsky almost losing the woman he loves after a terrific battle with The Countess Wandessa (Marya, the daughter of Dracula) and the fierce beast known as the Yeti. *

1977

New York City   Dracula-Prime, somehow regains control of the Latos-Clone, and has him slay, then takes the place of elderly actor Loren Belasco (Known for his screen portrayals of Count Dracula). As Belasco the vampire claims several victims ’till he is thwarted by Marshall Sam McCloud.

  McCloud witnesses Belasco plunge into the Hudson river after a swarm of bats fails to protect him.

  Later after he regains control of his own mind the Latos-Clone returns to Prof. Harmon and relates the whole story to him. Harmon’s theory is that Dracula-Prime was outraged when he learned of the Latos-Clone’s independence and caused him to commit evil out of spite.

  The Latos-Clone once more takes his leave of Prof. Harmon and hints that he might return to the secret city of Purgatory. He would teach the citizens of the vampire colony his new way of life, when them off of human blood with Prof. Harmon’s synth-blood and work towards a day when vampires may coexist peacefully with humans. This is the last we hear of the Latos-Clone.

 

1979

Transylvania   Dracula-Prime and the core members of the League of Anti-Diabolists have a final conflict, near Castle Dracula.

  Quincy Harker stabs Count Dracula with a silver spoke from his wheel chair then follows through with a silver knife and just to make sure the job is completed, detonates explosives hidden in his wheel chair. His act of martyrdom buries them both under tons of stone.

  When the League uncovers the remains they discover that not only is Harker dead but the threat of Dracula, seems to be ended forever.

  Their main goal accomplished the core group go their separate ways. Blade, King and Drake continue their battles through solo efforts. Dr. Rachel van Helsing opens a Psychiatry practice in San francisco hospital and marries a man named Patrick Corrigan. Prof. Damien Harmon takes over as the head of the League of Anti-Diabolists moving the main headquarters to his West Hampton estate in New York.

1921

Visaria    Ygor and Henry Frankenstein’s Monster travel to the laboratory and home of Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein, hoping Ludwig will finish the job of recharging the Monster that his older brother, Wolf had begun. Once there Ygor gets a new idea, or dare I say, changes his mind, when he convinces Ludwig’s assistant, Dr. Bohmer, to transfer Ygor’s own diabolical brain and heart into Henry Frankenstein’s Monster. *

   This was accomplished resulting in the death of Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein and the destruction of his house and laboratory. The Monster/Ygor seems to have perished with Ludwig in the inferno of the laboratory, later evidence however shows that he fell through the burning floors into the frozen Alpine caverns below. **

   Elsa Frankenstein, Ludwig’s daughter, moves to Vienna after these tragic events. Dr. Bohmer, who during these events, received a severe electric shock, goes quite mad. Bohmer takes the brain and heart that were removed from Henry Frankenstein’s Monster and flees.

* This was obviously not part of Dracula’s master plan, but Ygor’s twisted reasoning must have thought it best.

** See file THE GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN by Erle C. Kenton.

 

1923

Vasaria    Satanic Architect, Hjalmer Poelzig, builds the Science Palace in the outskirts of Vasaria.

London   The Lejos-Cloneis revived, by a descendent of R.N. Renfield. He begins his revenge against old foes by seeking out Jon Quincy Harker and his sister Lucy Weston * the children of Jonathan and Mina Harker.

  Jon Quincy, happens to be engaged to Dr. Seward’s daughter Mina, named after his friend and old flame.

  Jon Quincy and Mina Seward were never told of their parent’s horrific tribulations. Dr. Seward is mesmerized by Dracula-Lejos into forgetting his previous encounter with Dracula-Prime. Dracula-Lejos turns Lucy into a full vampire, **

  Prof. Leyland Van Helsing journeys to England to assist Quincy. Together they stake the Prince of Darkness and believe him destroyed. Lucy Weston was last seen wandering, through the London night and her current whereabouts are unknown. ***
   Not long after these events, Countess Marya Zeleska, leaves Castle Dracula and journeys to London to find the corpse of the Lejos-Clone.

  Marya wishes to make London her home. She reduces to ashes the body of her fathers soul clone so that she can exist with out her Dark Sire’s scrutiny.

  Her accompanying minion Sandor, however, was given instructions by Dracula-Prime to return the Lejos corpse to the unmarked grave, where he was buried in 1918 by Prof. Sanders and Lady Jane Ainsley.

  Sandor transforms the ashes back into a corpse and carries out his true master’s wishes. The ring is later returned to Transylvania.

  Soon Marya and Sandor find themselves in a battle with Professor Leyland Van Helsing and Dr. Jeffrey Garth, which is waged from the streets of London all the way back to Castle Dracula. ****

   *Nee Harker, the surviving Harkers refuse at this point to inform the League of the details of Lucy’s husband.

1933

Llanwely

  Upon the death of his twin brother * John Talbot Jr, Lawrence Stewart Talbot, returns to Talbot Castle in Llanwely, Wales.

  Talbot purchases the Wolf’s Head Scepter that somehow winds up in a small Llanwelian shop. Having no idea of its purpose he uses it as a novelty cane. Later he is bitten by and slays Bela Blasko. **

  Talbot, to his horror, becomes a werewolf. He finds a friend in Melava the gypsy who seeks to help him, but in the end is apparently slain by his own father who uses the Wolf’s Head Scepter as the instrument of death. John Talbot dies of grief soon after. ***

  During these events, the body of John Talbot Jr. is exhumed, from the Talbot family tomb, by agents of Dracula and transported to Castle Dracula. Dracula-Prime turns John Jr. into a soul clone named Grodimn, and bestows upon him the Star-Stone ring.****

 

 

  * Recent evidence shows that John Talbot Jr. was himself a werewolf and was originally killed when shot by hunters mistaking him for an animal. This fact shows that Dracula-prime, might have had an easier time, making a soul-clone out of a creature already tainted with Un-dead blood.

  ** See Curt Siodmak’s file THE WOLF MAN

   *** New information reveals that Bela was by no means, completely destroyed. Bela secretly recovered and left Llanwely, with the Wolfshead sceptre in his grasp.

   **** It must be noted that it has been a closely guarded secret that Lawrence Stewart Talbot, was not the first, nor the last member of this family to be afflicted with the werewolf curse but certain textual references provide clues to the connection between the Talbots and lycanthropy.

  One such example is found in an excerpt from Prof. Summerlee’s twenty volume set Poppycock, Twaddle and Balderdash (Published 1889) Which reads thusly……

  Prof. Dennis Power following up on my research has discovered even darker truths behind these matters.

  Prof. Power using his keen talent for delving into secret and forbidden genealogies has unveiled a family connection between the Talbots, Rex Rufus, the Aztec Werewolf Mummy, Leon Carrida, Anthony Rivers, Wilfred Glendon, Count Inre Wolfstein, Waldamer Daninsky, and Lajos-Dracula’s servant Andreas.

  This revelation, however is only scratching the surface, Prof. Power’s article HYDE AND HARE, PART ONE shows that this bloodline has been producing lycanthropes longer than our researchers could have ever dreamed and brings to light the cause of this terrible affliction.

Prof. Powers article from start to finish is now required reading for all MONSTAAH agents.

 

1935

Boneport, La.   Dracula-Grodimn, travels to Dark Oaks plantation using the alias Count Alucard. His goal is to create a colony of vampires, hidden in the swamp lands of North Louisiana (Preferring to avoid the annoying reject, soul clone Lestat, further south)

  Dracula-Grodimn’s failure in this endeavor comes from two sources.

   First, the intervention of Dr. Harold Brewster and League of Anti-Diabolists member, Prof. Emil Lazlo. Secondly, his goal is diverted by carnal lust for Katherine Caldwell. She is one of the two lovely daughters of Col. Caldwell, the owner of Dark Oaks plantations. *

  Dracula-Grodimn is destroyed in the swamps by the rising sun. The ash remains and the ring are retrieved by Dracula-Primes minions and returned to castle Dracula.

  Soon after these events, Dr. Harold Brewster, with the help of Prof., Emil Lazlo, found the Boneport, La. Chapter of the League of Anti-Diabolists then headquartered in Dark Oaks, as there were reports, that vampires created by Dracula-Grodimn were still lurking about. (And still are today)

 

Transylvania.   Later that year Dracula-Prime has his minion, gypsies sell the skeletal remains, of the Latos clone (With ring), to a traveling sideshow run by Professor Lampini. The gypsies assure Lampini that this is the actual skeleton of Count Dracula and that he must never remove the stake which is carefully placed where the heart would be. Lampini takes this story lightly but knows a good attraction when he sees one so he takes the skeleton, coffin, stake and all to feature in his traveling show. Since all is going according to his plans to have the Latos-Clone locate Henry Frankenstein’s Monster.

  Dracula-Prime returns to sleep.

1937

Llanwely.   Lawrence Stewart Talbot is revived when grave looters open his tomb as the full moon arises. Talbot awakens in a London hospital with a horrible realization; he cannot die! Talbot escapes the hospital seeks out and finds Maleva.

  Talbot asks Maleva for one simple thing, to help him end his wretched life. The two of them end up journeying to Visaria, seeking the aid of Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein. Instead they end up encountering Ludwig’s daughter Elsa and Henry Frankenstein’s Monster. (with Ygor’s brain). Talbot, as the Wolfman, fights with the Monster until the castle laboratory crumbles around them.

   See agent Siodmak’s report FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLFMAN

 

1940

Visaria.    Dr. Gustav Niemann, the younger brother of the late Henry Frankenstein’s assistant Karl, escapes from prison with aid of a pitiful hunchback named Daniel.

  Dr. Niemann was imprisoned fifteen years prior for conducting blasphemous experiments using some of Henry Frankenstein’s notes as a template.

  The two fugitives encounter Prof. Lampini and his sideshow wagon on the road. Daniel the hunchback at Nieman’s bidding strangles Prof. Lampini. They steal his sideshow and it to Visaria.

  Once in Visaria, Dr. Niemann revives Dracula-Latos and unleashes him on the men who sent Niemann to prison. Dracula-Latos however meets an untimely end due to the sunrise.

  Dr. Niemann continues his quest by traveling to the remains of the late Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein’s laboratory. In the caverns below he discovers the frozen bodies of Lawrence Stewart Talbot (In Wolfman form) and Henry Frankenstein’s Monster (With Ygor’s brain)

  Niemann revives both, and takes them to his old lab in the outskirts of Visaria. Dr. Niemann’s plans to fully charge the Monster, are spoiled when the hunchback Daniel becomes jealous over a gypsy girl he fancies, love for Talbot.

  Chaos erupts. Talbot is shot with a silver bullet fired by the hand of one who loves him.*

  Dr. Niemann and the Monster seem to meet their fate as they sink into a swamp. **

  Later reports show that the remains of Dracula-Latos were brought back to Transylvania by the Undead Lord’s dark servants.

  Dracula-Prime did not consider this to be a wasted mission as, thanks to Dr. Niemann discussing his plans in earshot of the Latos-Clone, he now had a clue as to the whereabouts of Henry Frankenstein’s Monster. With this knowledge he sets a new plan in motion.

  There have been questions as to how the second World War, seems to have little impact on these small European areas, where these events take place. Supernatural events historian, Donald F. Glut postulates that Hitler, being obsessed with the occult might have found it prudent to avoid places where beings such as Dracula, werewolves and undead monsters trod.

  *A legendary way to kill a werewolf– which has never proven to be true, it does however seem to put the werewolf into a death like state, until the silver is removed.

  **See agent Siodmak’s report HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN not to be confused with Prof. Mark Brown’s article with the same title.

 

1942

  Lawrence Stewart Talbot is revived,*

  He moves to a flat in London, still hoping to find a way to permanently die.

  Dr. Peter Drury contacts Talbot saying he wants to cure him, but really wants samples of Talbot’s blood, to make super soldiers.**

 

  *At this time, how this happened is unknown

  **Drury would later work with the blood of Frank Griffen, AKA the Invisible Agent. See Agent Jeff Rovin’s report THE RETURN OF THE WOLFMAN.

1944

London   The Lejos Clone is revived when a war time bomb shell disturbs his unmarked grave. Two grave keepers innocently pull the stake out of the resurfaced body.

  Lejos, sans Star-Stone Ring, attacks the family of Lady Jane Ainsley.

  Lady Jane Ainsley

  Ainsley makes the connection between this vampire and the 16th century Romanian scholar, Armand Tesla.*

  Ainsley uses information from Tesla’s (Lejos) own ancient writings to destroy him.**

  The report for some reason leaves out the contribution by Dr. Anton Zarnak*** to this case. Ainsley consulted heavily with Zarnak and he was there in the shadows making sure Ainsley’s crusade against Tesla (Lejos) succeeded.

Rare photo of Dr. Anton Zarnak

  Soon after his destruction the remains of the Lejos Clone are returned to Castle Dracula and the Latos-Clone is revived (With ring).

  Lady Jane Ainsley joins the League of Anti-Diabolists and compares notes with van Helsing and Harker.

  Zarnak declines membership but lets them know that he always stands ready to assist. Other’s like Dr. Zarnak who never officially join but lend their expertise when needed include such luminaries as Dr. Carnaki, Titus Crow, Dr. Henry Vincent , Jules de Grandin, Judge Pursuivant and John Thunstone.

 

Berlin.   Dr. Bohmer, who was at that time using the alias of Dr. Riesendorf, is interrupted in his continuing experiments with the brain and heart of Henry Frankenstein’s Monster by members of Hitlers SS. The SS. officers confiscate the Monsters heart and send it to a lab in Hiroshima Japan. ***

 

Visaria   Birth of Waldomer Daninsky to Col. Heinrich Wolfstein and Czinka Tara the Gypsy.

Waldomer Daninsky

  Col. Wolfstein was an SS Officer who turned his back on the Nazi’s during an attempted German invasion of Visaria, all to save the young Gypsy girl, Czinka.

Czinka becomes pregnant by Wolfstein, which angers the Gypsy’s brother Rom.

1945

Visaria.   Lawrence Stewart Talbot, travels once more to Visaria seeking a cure from Dr. Franz Edelmann, Edelmann was a craniologist who moved his practice to Visaria to be near the home of the man who inspired him, the late Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein.

  Dracula (Latos) also arrives claiming to seek a cure from Vampirism.

  As the events unfold Talbot is seemingly cured and he falls in love with Miliza Morelle, Dr. Edelmann’s beautiful assistant. Dracula-Latos also had taken a fancy to Miss Morelle but his attentions were not reciprocated. This romantic rivalry furthered the Vampire Lord’s hatred for the Talbot family.

  Later Henry Frankenstein’s Monster is revived and Dracula-Latos turns Dr. Edelmann, into a semi-soul clone of a soul clone.*

  The method used by Dracula-Latos, to turn Dr. Edelmann, into a soul-clone was actually done with Edelmann’s unwitting cooperation. Dr. Edelmann’s theory for curing a vampire consisted of transferring his own blood and essence into the patient.

  Dracula-Latos during one of these procedures merely reversed the process. Unknown to Dracula-Latos, he received, in the first transfusions from Dr. Edelmann, a remnant of the Doctors own soul. This would have a profound affect on the Latos-Clone many years later.

  New information exposes Dracula-Latos reason for turning Dr. Edelmann into a soul clone of himself. Knowing that Edelmann’s scientific knowledge would be retained the doctor was merely a pawn of Dracula in the quest to get the Monster of Henry Frankenstein to full strength.

  This plan seems to have failed as Latos, Dr. Edelmann and The Monster seemed to be destroyed.

  However, soon after the events of this report, Dracula-Prime, awakens the Lejos-Clone and sends him to Visaria.

  Lejos locates the remains of Dracula-Latos and transfers the Star-Stone ring to his own finger. The body of Dracula-Latos is shipped back to Castle Dracula.

  Dracula-Lejos takes control of Henry Frankenstein’s Monster.**

  Larry Talbot marries Miliza, and they live happily for 2 months ’till his lycanthropy returns and he kills her.***

  Information obtained by Prof. Baugh and myself reveals that Miliza was not killed although Talbot believed she was. It has been revealed that the wedding of Lawrence Stewart Talbot and Miliza Morelle was attended by Melava Blasko, one of the few people Talbot considered a true friend. Melava’s heightened senses told her that not only was Talbot not permanently cured, but that Miliza was pregnant.

  Melava planned ahead for the night when she knew Talbot would once again revert to his beast like state and secreted Miliza away to safety. Talbot was lead to believe that he had killed Miliza so that he would not go searching for her.

 

London   That same year while attending an opera Jon Quincy Harker and his wife, Elizabeth Mina Harker, are savagely attacked by Dracula-Lejos.

  Quincy Harker’s legs are rendered completely useless and his wife, Elizabeth Mina almost dies from blood loss and suffers severe trauma. Quincy Harker travels to New York City for physical therapy. He is helped in his endeavors by Prof. Damien Harmon, who had lost the use of his own legs, in 1938.

  Harmon who had achieved doctorate degrees in ancient literature, medieval philosophy and a masters degree in physics before he reached his mid-twenties (As well as having at the time latent telepathic abilities) was once a special assistant to New York City police commissioner Ralph Weston.

  As a consultant he used his vast knowledge in the then-new science of criminology. What started out as desk job and late night discussions of theories with friends like Richard Wentworth turned into disaster, when Harmon, against Weston’s orders took his ideas to the streets and met his fate when a thug bashed his head and spine with a lead pipe.

  Harmon along with having a metal plate inserted in his skull was left a cripple. Having dealt with his handicap through strenuous exercise building up his upper body strength he became a perfect mentor for Quincy Harker.

  Harker met Harmon, through fellow, League of Anti-Diabolists, member, Dr. Jeffrey Garth, whose younger brother, Atwood Garth, was an old friend of Prof. Harmon. While going through therapy, Harker, Harmon and another wheelchair bound scientist, named Dr. Everette Scott, become good friends.

  After many nights discussing there various fields of expertise, Harker invites both men to join him in the League of Anti-Diabolists. Harmon declines, but Dr. Scott accepts and becomes the newest member.

**Which ironically, has the brain of Dracula-Lejos, son Ygor

   ***This is according to agent Jeff Rovin’s report THE RETURN OF THE WOLFMAN.

 

1946

  Birth of John Lawrence Talbot , son of Lawrence Stewart Talbot and Miliza Morelle.

John Lawrence “Jack” Talbot

  After being taken to a safe place, Miliza is comforted by Baron Ivor Russoff, a kind man introduced to her by Melava . The two marry and Baron Russoff adopts John Lawrence. A month or so later, Lawrence Stewart Talbot, in Werewolf form is near the home of Baron Russoff.

  The Wolfman catches the scent of his former wife in her bed room, he crashes through her window and mates with her, purely through instinct. (wolves chose one mate for life) whether or not the Wolfman would have killed Miliza is unknown, because as soon as the seed was planted Baron Russoff entered the room with a rifle, firing at the manbeast. The Wolfman leaped out of the window fleeing to the woods beyond.

  When Talbot awoke the next morning human once more, he of course had no memory of the event. Talbot at the time was on the trail of Dracula, who was near by so it is quite possible that the Lord of the Undead himself, manipulated these events.

  18 months after the birth of her older brother, John Lawrence, Melissa (Lissa) Maureen Russoff is born. She is the daughter of Miliza Russoff and Lawrence Stewart Talbot. At Melava’s suggestion Baron Russoff moves his wife and two adopted children, to the U.S.A. In the States, Russoff changes his last name to Russell. During childhood young John Lawrence becomes attached to the family dog. His young mind is impressed that the breed name (Jack Russell Terrier) is similar to his own and starts calling himself “Jack”.

  Meanwhile Jack’s true father, Lawrence Stewart Talbot travels the globe in pursuit of Dracula.

  Talbot believes that destroying the Vampire King might make up for some of the evil that he himself has done. If he can succeed in this mission, he can then try to fulfill his fondest wish; to die.

 

New York.  In order to have an army of Monsters, like the Creature he now controls, Dracula-Prime sends Marya’s clone, Lilith to the USA to spy on and influence Dr. Peter Frederick Frankenstein. To achieve this, Lilith uses the name Elizabeth and begins a romance with young Dr. Frankenstein. The two are soon engaged.

 

1948

LaMirada, Florida   Lawrence Stewart Talbot, tracks Dracula-Lejos all the way to North America.

  Dracula, is in the company of Henry Frankenstein’s Monster, (Still housing the brain of Dracula’s son Ygor) and is in league with Dr. Sandra Mornay, a descendent of Dr. Moreau.*

  Dracula and Mornay also have possession of Henry Frankenstein’s notebook. Dracula’s plan is to replace Ygor’s brain with that of a bumbling, easily controlled shipping clerk.**

  Dracula and Talbot meet on La Viuda Island just off the coast of LaMirada. Talbot has encountered both the Latos and the Lejos soul clones so he is not fooled by Dracula calling himself Dr. Lejos.

  Talbot, in Wolfman form, foils Dracula’s plan, and the Vampire King, barely escapes. ***

  Talbot with the assistance, of an understanding woman, named Joan Raymond, impales himself with a shard of silver, returning him to his deathlike hibernation and entombs him in the bowels of the ancient castle that stands on La Viuda island.

  Unknown to both of them, the Monster of Henry Frankenstein, also slumbers there. ****

 

This year also marks the passing of Baroness Elizabeth Frankenstein, widow of the late Baron Henry Frankenstein.

 

Frankenstein, Germany.  Upon the death of his grandmother, Dr. Peter Frederick Frankenstein, inherits Frankenstein Castle. Though reluctant at first he eventually succumbs to the curse of his family and decides to create his own Monster. With the assistance of a lovely village girl named Inga and a hunchback named Eye-gor, ***** he succeeds in stitching together and giving life to a Monster of his own. ******

  The end result is that if Dracula-Prime was expecting an army of monsters from this source, he was disappointed. Dr. Peter Frederick Frankenstein, makes friends with his Creation. The Dr. winds up marrying his assistant Inga, and the Monster winds up marrying Frankenstein’s ex-fiancee, Elizabeth (Lillith).

 

  *For more on Dr. Moreau please see That Stubborn Beast Flesh Come Creeping Back! The Islands of Dr. Moreau by Prof. Power

   **The theorized reason for the brain exchange is that Ygor’s will proved to be harder to control even with the Star-Stone ring working in concert with the Creature’s neck bolts made from the same stone.

   *** A new mystery has reached the surface concerning this event. The La Viuda Island Incident occurred October 31, 1948. A chart showing the phases of the moon provided by Prof. Loki Carbis clearly shows that there was no Full Moon on that date, yet the reports show that Larry Talbot did indeed transform into a werewolf. Rest assured, this matter is being looked into.

   ****See the strangely titled file ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN and agent Jeff Rovin’s report THE RETURN OF THE WOLF MAN.

   *****As of this report, we do not know the story behind Eye-gor, but information shared with me by Prof. Win Scott Eckert, reveals that this bizarre individual was involved in a secret Eugenics program in the 1960’s.

Frankenstein, Germany   Baron Wolf Frankenstein, his wife Elsa and their young son Peter Frederick move to their ancestral estate, Castle Frankenstein much to the fear of the villagers.

  The Baron soon makes the acquaintance of his fathers assistant Ygor.*

  Ygor had been hiding Henry Frankenstein’s Monstrosity all these years using him for his devilish purposes. Playing on Wolf’s sympathy Ygor persuades Wolf to bring the creature to its full strength.**

  Wolf is caught in his endeavors by Inspector Krogh, who as a boy, had one of his arms ripped from its socket, by the rampaging Monster. Krogh shows Wolf the error of his ways and the two work together to destroy Ygor and the Monster.

  The Monster is thrown into a pit of lava and Ygor is shot repeatedly but as is proved over and over; you cannot kill the undead. The Baron decides to leave the Frankenstein estate to the villagers in order to make up for the damage he, and his ancestors were responsible for. ***

  Before Wolf and his family take their leave, the Baron constructs a new arm for Inspector Krogh to replace the wooden appendage he lost during this horrid affair. This new arm is a thing of mechanical wonder possessing many devices that Krogh will find useful as a law enforcer.

  * At this point Ygor had been hanged, shot and suffered so many beatings by the villagers, that his indestructible body was more misshapen then ever.

  ** Ygor was planning to deliver the fully charged creature to his dark sire, Dracula.

Llanwelly, Wales.    Lawrence Milo Talbot and his friend Albert La Forge Graduate “Summa Cum Laude” from the University of Paris.

  Lawrence Milo Talbot returns to Llanwely and opens a medical practice, but finds many of the villagers put more faith in superstition. One of the causes of the villagers fear is a gypsy named Vorcla, (Dracula-Lejos son, Bela incognito) who plans on founding a town of werewolves by isolating Llanwely from the rest of England by terrorizing the town and nearby environs.

  Talbot exposes Vorcla’s plans and in turn Vorcla curses Talbot with lycanthropy.

  When Talbot and his fiancee’, Ann (also called Lyana) and his friend Albert believe they have killed Vorcla, they reason that the curse is over.

  Lawrence and Ann soon marry. Bela flees Llanwely in haste, leaving the Wolf’s Head scepter behind.

 

   Information derived mostly from agent Dells THE WOLFMAN file. Not to be confused with agents Siodmak and Dreadstone’s reports of the same title.

 

1870

Transylvania.   Dracula-Prime awakens to feed and to check on the progress of his various plans. The Lejos Clone is retired and put in storage.

   Dracula-Prime is not at full power still awaiting the return of the Star Stone ring, (Which is in the possession of the Latos Soul clone in the USA) but a weak Dracula is still very powerful by human standards.

   Dracula is also not at full mental capacity, as he is dividing his mind between the Latos-Clone in North America, and the Kah clone in China. Never the less, the Prince of Darkness begins to terrorize Europe in its shadows and dark corners.

Germany.   Victor Frankenstein III returns to Castle Frankenstein though he does not enter or renew relationships with his cousin Baron Alphonse Frankenstein.

   Victor III does however stumble upon the remains of his first Creation in an area near the castle.The Monster is revived but as soon as the villagers become aware of another monster-making Frankenstein in their midst, Victor III’s plans are once again brought to a crashing halt. *

1872

Altenburg, Switzerland.   Taking a break from conducting brain transplants Victor III savagely rapes Anna Spengler, the fiancee, of his assistant, Dr. Karl Holtz. *

   New information shows that Anna survived this event and became pregnant with Victor III’s child. To ask for assistance from Victor III is out of the question, so she seeks the aid of Baron Alphonse Frankenstein and his wife Felicia. The Baron and Baroness send Anna to the USA to live with friends of theirs in New York city.

   Anna starts a new life giving her newborn son her own last name. A descendant of Anna’s resides in present day New York city and as of the early 1980s has been a member of a group similar in many ways to MONSTAAH and it’s previous incarnation, the League of Anti-Diabolists but focusing more on the ecto horrors of the spirit world.

1873

USA   To gain recruits Dracula-Latos leaves the town called Purgatory in the hands of his second in command, a vampire named Ethan Jefferson, who came to the USA on the Mayflower.

   Dracula-Latos travels the West using the name and guise of Reverend Serenity Johnson recruiting disciples by appealing to those who are seeking higher spirituality.

   In order to operate in the daylight, Dracula-Latos, is sent a chemical created by Dr. Praetorious which can protect a vampire from the deadly affects of sunlight when applied to the skin. The drawback is that while it permits survival in the daytime world it does not prevent the sun’s rays from draining the powers of a vampire.

    Dracula-Latos, as Rev. Johnson, must rely on his natural gift of Persuasion to attract his disciples.

   The supply of the chemical lasts Latos for three years after that, Dr. Praetorious moves onto other projects and cannot be troubled to make more. The Latos Clone eventually makes his way to Texas, where founds a second community of vampires, in the small town of Chaney.

 

1874

Switzerland.   Victoria Marie Frankenstein becomes the apprentice of Dr. Praetorious and Ygor, son of Dracula-Lejos. The three spend months attempting to unravel the secrets of Victor Frankenstein I.

  When Talbot finds that Vorcla (Bela) was the son of Dracula he hunts the Lord of the Vampires as well.

  Talbot battles Dracula at some point, the details of which are unknown. It is confirmed however that Talbot traveled to the United States to seek a cure from his curse from a tribe of native Americans who were rumored to be Lycanthropes.

 

1879

Transylvania.   Countess Marya Zeleska seeking to create a soul-clone of her own but lacking the power to do so develops her own method. She summons the abandoned soul-clone Grimpod and selects a human mate for him. The result is a daughter whom Marya names Lilith.

  The Countess rejects Lilith however when she becomes jealous of Grimpod showing fatherly affection to his daughter. (Something Marya never had) Grimpod raises Lilith in one of Dracula-Prime’s lesser castles.

1881

Switzerland   Henry Frankenstein attends the University of Vienna.

One of his teachers is Dr. Praetorious (Who through mysterious connections obtained a tenure)

Praetorious, directs young Henrys thoughts to discovering the secrets of life and death.

 

This same year, The 8 Daughters of Ygor, through sinister and shuddery means are married off to 8 carefully selected yet unsuspecting, gentlemen, through out the world.

The husbands are all men of title and/or letters. Their surnames are Carruthers, Legendre, Chandler, Roxor, Zorka, Vornoff, Werdegast and Benet.

This is as Dracula-Prime planned.

 

1882

8 Sons are born to the 8 Daughters of Ygor on the same day, same hour, same second.

 

1885

Castle Frankenstein.    Henry Frankenstein continues the obsession, which seems to be a curse upon his families very name. Much to the unhappiness, of his fiancée Elisabeth, Henry creates his own, Undying Monster. *

   Henry is aided in his experiments by Ygor.**

  Ygor provides Henry Frankenstein with two of the neck bolts, fashioned from the star stone, that are attached to the Monster. The bolts provide the conduit with which the Creature receives its life giving, electricity. ***

 

 

  * See agent James Whales report FRANKENSTEIN, THE MAN WHO MADE A MONSTER and Prof. Mark Browns HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN

  ** In Whale’s report the hunchbacked assistant is called Fritz, but in Dreadstone’s follow-up report, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, it is revealed that he was indeed Ygor. The report by Whale, states that Fritz (Ygor) was slain by the monster but this appears to not to be the case as later reports will show.

 

  *** In the years to come the second purpose of the bolts will be revealed

 

1886

Castle Frankenstein.    Henry Frankenstein works with Dr. Praetorious to create a bride for The Monster. Frankenstein’s assistant this time is Karl Niemann.*

   During these events, Henry Frankenstein’s Monster takes refuge with an old blind hermit who shows him compassion and teaches him how to speak. The Monster’s first friendship is ended however when a traveler believed to be a temporarily revived Dracula-Latos appears at the doorway of the old hermit’s hovel. Dracula’s attempt to gain control of this monster, fails however.

   The end of these reports show the destruction of The Monster, the Bride, and Dr. Preatorius, and as this was Whales last report on the Frankenstein family, it is probable that he believed this to be true. Soon after these events, Henry and Elisabeth Frankenstein move to England.

   * See the reports by agents, Whale and Dreadstone, both titled THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

 

1887

London   Dracula-Prime, now at full strength, sets his new plans of ruling the world in motion.

    He summons real estate solicitor, Jonathan Harker, to Castle Dracula. Dracula purchases Carfax Abby in London as a new base of operations. The Prince of Darkness comes close to achieving his goals but his plans are halted thanks to efforts, by Harker, Mina Murray, Dr. John Seward, Quincy Morris, Lord Goldaming, Prof. Abraham van Helsing and Sherlock Holmes.

  According to these reports, Dracula was destroyed, in his Transylvanian castle, by being impaled by the knives of Jonathon Harker, and Quincy Morris. New information, however, reveals that this action did not destroy Dracula, or even return him to his death like state. Dracula merely turned to mist, then reformed himself, when he believed his foes gone. Mina Murray, felt faint on the road back to Biritz, and van Helsing and Co. realized that the task was not complete. They returned to the castle, and this time used a proper wooden stake.

   That same year, Maria van Helsing, daughter of Abraham van Helsing marries Prof. Armitage H. Porter.

   The birth of Wolf Frankenstein to Henry and Elizabeth Frankenstein.

   The birth of Hjalmar Poelzig, future renowned architect and Satanic priest.

1888

Transylvania.   The stake is removed from Dracula-Prime’s heart by villagers guided by Dracula’s mind.

   Dracula in a very weak state makes plans to hibernate once more. He instructs his Vampire women to lure a young British gentleman who happened to be traveling through Transylvania. With the beauty of the three women, who are referred to as Dracula’s Brides as bait, Dracula has little difficulty getting the Englishman to ask a boon. (A night of ecstasy, with the Brides) After payment has been tendered

   Dracula turns him into a soul clone and assigns him the name Denrom, once again to mock Nimrod-Lothos.

  The Starstone ring is given to Denrom and Dracula-Prime returns to rest in his secret crypt.

1894

Soho, England.   A mysterious file edited by the late Roger Zelazny and which claims to be authored by a Canine named Snuff??? reveals that on October 31, 1894, a strange gathering of extraordinary personalities, occurs.

  According to some occult lore, a full moon on an All Hallows Eve, has a special significance, referred to as a “LONESOME OCTOBER”.

  It seems that at such a time, the barriers between our world and the sinister, outre, Beyond, weaken, and it is possible for the path to be cleared for terrible, chaotic, entities to come forth.

  According to this report, every Lonesome October, two groups converge at a certain location, which seems to vary each time. One Group hopes to open the dark gate, the other seeks to keep it closed.

  This particular event, appears to have been attended by several personages important to this timeline.

1. A werewolf called Larry Talbot. The author even refers to him by name. We at MONSTAAH, believe this to be none other than Lawrence Milo Talbot.

2. A Vampire referred to as The Count. It is our theory, that this is the Denrom Soul-Clone.

3. The Good Doctor and the Experiment Man. All evidence seems to point towards this being Henry Frankenstein and yet another Creature he has brought to life.

4. The man known simply as Jack, is hinted at being the murderous and mysterious “Jack the Ripper”, MONSTAAH researchers my self, included, theorize that he is also the warlike Immortal known as Kane.**

  There are many others in attendance, but as to who they were by the clues provided, is beyond the scope of our organization, and I leave it to my colleagues in the New Wold Newton Meteoritic Society to sort out the rest.***


*See report A NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER by Roger Zelazny

**For a fascinating article about Jack the Ripper, please see My colleague from the Wold Newton Institute, Prof. Mike Winkles…

FIELD GUIDE TO RIPPER MURDERS

*** Indeed my friend Prof. Loki Carbis has spent years studying this event and its ramifications on the universe.

We hope someday he will share his findings with us.

 

1895

Transylvania.    Lawrence van Helsing sends Paul Harker, a cousin of Jonathan Harker’s, to Castle Dracula after hearing rumors that the Count was indeed not destroyed. The agent gains employment as Dracula’s librarian.

  Dracula-Denrom discovers the agent’s ruse and turns him into a vampire. Lawrence van Helsing journeys to Transylvania when he receives a letter from Paul.

   Van Helsing discovers that Paul has been turned and mercifully destroys him. Dracula and van Helsing battle until van Helsing turns Dracula-Denrom to ashes by exposing him to sunlight.

   When this report, entitled THE HORROR OF DRACULA was written by agent Sangster. as with his Frankenstein files, he did not have the full story, so he embellished the report, with elements from the memoirs, edited by Bram Stoker. Sangster also mistakenly gave the date of this event as 1885 This was corrected by a member of the van Helsing family

 

1896

Transylvania.   Lawrence van Helsing battles Baron Meinster, a young nobleman, who was turned into a vampire by Dracula-Denrom.

   See agent Sangsters report entitled THE BRIDES OF DRACULA

1840-1865

 

1840

    Birth of Victoria Marie to Victor II and Constance Frankenstein.

Constance dies soon after from an epidemic fever.

 

1843

New York, USA     Felicia born to Victor Frankenstein II and a woman whose identity is not known at this point. *

To protect them, Victor II sends his oldest children, Victor III and Victoria Marie to live at Frankenstein Castle with Baron William Frankenstein and his son Alphonse Victor.

Felicia however will grow up in New York, near her father, under the last name Saville.

There seems to be evidence that Victor II lavished more love and attention on his daughter Felicia than on his elder children. Perhaps that is why he made no mention of her in his journals thus preventing his father’s Creation from ever finding about her existence and making her a target in his continual crusade of vengeance on the Frankenstein family.

That Victor II might have been neglectful of Victor III and Victoria Marie is evidenced by their uncaring actions toward humanity in their adult lives.

 

    * This information was not mentioned in Victor II’s journals, as edited by Robert J. Myers. It must have been a brief marriage that ended in divorce or death.

 

1845

  Birth of Countess Marya Zeleska to Dracula-Lejos, and Maleva.

  Dracula’s plans are to one day make Marya, the leader of an army of vampires, second only to him. She is given the second Star Stone ring.

1849

Castle Frankenstein, Frankenstein Village

      Alphonse Victor develops a strong dislike for his cousins when he discovers that Victor III and Victoria Marie exhumed his recently expired, beloved hound and dissected her.

Their odd behavior combined with his father, the Baron’s tendency to drink and engage in improper liaisons with the young house maids, prompts young Alphonse Victor to make a trip to New York where he visits Victor Frankenstein II and his daughter Felicia. He decides to live there.

Victor III uses Alphonse Victor’s departure to manipulate the Baron, to adopt him as his son and to bequeath upon him the future title of Baron. He also convinces the Baron to send Victoria Marie to an exclusive boarding school in Vienna.

Apparently Victor III discovered the dark heritage of his family and became obsessed with the secrets of life and death. His sister, Victoria Marie, developed this same passion but she refused to be her brother’s mere helper which annoyed Victor III so he convinces the Baron to send Victoria Marie to an exclusive boarding school in Vienna. Victor III was then free to experiment in the dark.

1857

Frankenstein Village   Victor Frankenstein III arranges for his foster father Baron William Frankenstein to be killed in a hunting accident. Victor III becomes Baron Frankenstein. With his new wealth he attends the University of Vienna.    Victor III’s attendance at this higher school of learning is ended when he impregnates the Deans daughter. My esteemed colleague Prof. Power shares his research concerning this matter….

    “The Dean of Vienna University was named Yergler. The family had assiduously avoided scandal since the Dean’s ancestor Rudolph Yergler had been sent to a madhouse in 1655, after penning the Chronike von Nath. The Dean’s daughter’s pregnancy was hushed up by her parents who had arranged for her to marry a wealthy Burgermeister named Albrecht Von Junzt, the nephew of famed occultist Frederick Von Junzt.     The child of Victor Frankenstein and Karen Yergler was Franz Von Junzt b. 1858 After his father’s death his mother told him of the various occultists in his family and revealed that he was the son of Victor Frankenstein. Intrigued by this turn of events he began investigating the occult as well. His studies lead him to England where he became a scholar specializing in the translation of documents in the British Museum. During this period he marries Alice Durie, granddaughter of Alexander Durrie, Lord Durrisdeere, Marquis of Ballantrae by her had Hermes Trimegisterious Frankenstein 1880 and Praetorious Frankenstein. b.1881     His studies in Britain lead him to find that an Englishman named Sir Patrick Clarke Wildman, of Fogg Shaw, Derbyshire was apparently trying to duplicate the experiments of the first Victor Frankenstein. Upon investigating this incident he discovers that Henry Frankenstein had visited England. Franz discovers in his translations in the British Museum an old grimoire with a recipe to make a homunculus. Franz takes to calling himself Frankenstein. He is discovered by his wife one night while he is obtaining the necessary fluids to sustain the homunculus shell. She is even more horrified by his explanation and leaves him     Upon arriving at her family’s holdings, she changes her sons names to something more properly British, Peter Durrie and Cameron Sullivan Durrie. They will both eventually learn of their dark heritage and experiment in many scientific and occult matters. *

 

Although Peter Drury is only seen in Invisible Man’s Revenge, his handiwork reverberates throughout the scientific community of that era.”

    Victor III and his schoolmate Wilhelm Kessman decide to spend the summer at Castle Frankenstein. Victor III creates his first Monster. Many who are close to the young Baron try to interfere with his plans resulting in their deaths at the hands of Victor III or his Creature.    When all the investigations by the local authorities end however, Victor III is found innocent and the Monster appears destroyed. **

* See Agent Sam Newfieid’s file. The Mad Monster and agent Al Adamson’s report Frankenstein Vs Dracula for Cameron Sullivan Durrie’s handiwork.

1859

 

Virginia, USA   Victor Frankenstein II, while trying to rescue slave revolt leader, John Brown, once again crosses paths with his father’s Monster. *

    Victor II’s daughter, Victoria Marie, is mentioned in the journals as living in the USA and working with abolitionist groups. New evidence shows that she was helping runaway slaves directly into her laboratory for fiendish experiments. Eventually, the real abolitionists catch on to her deeds and she flees back to Germany.

 

   * See Robert Myer’s edited journals of Victor Frankenstein II, titled THE SLAVE OF FRANKENSTEIN

Believed to be dead, Victor III is now able to move in the shadows and tamper with life and death as he sees fit. Victor III, makes his new home in Karlsbruck, and begins practice under the name Dr. Stein. *

Transylvania.   Bela Blasco, is born to Dracula-Lejos, and Melava. Dracula’s plans are to make Bela, the leader of a pack of werewolves. When Bela reaches a certain age, he is given the Wolf’s head scepter. The rod is made of ordinary wood, but the head of the wolf is made of a mixture of Silver, melded with bits of the star stone. This scepter, is believed to give one control of lycanthropes, even at their most beast like state. **

* See report THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN by agent Sangster, elements of the file seem to be inconsistent with that of Sangsters’ later report THE HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN. Sangster when writing the “CURSE” file was using Victor III”s journals some of which was a total fabrication. The truth was revealed to Sangster, when researching the “HORROR” file

* *New clues have surfaced, leading this researcher to wonder if there might be a connection between the Wolfs Head scepter and the Cats’ Head staff wielded by the Puritan Warrior known as Soloman Kane. Any theories or evidence pointing to the truth of this matter would be valuable to our research

 

1863

Karlsbruck.   Under the name Dr. Stein, Victor Frankenstein III creates a new, very human appearing Creature. When his true identity and horrific project are discovered by the townsfolk of Karlsbruck, Victor III, is killed. Victor III’s assistant transfers the former Barons brain into the Creature’s body and they make their way to London. Victor III sets up practice under the name Dr. Franck.*

  * See file The Revenge of Frankenstein by Terence Fisher.

 

1865

Transylvania.    Dracula-Prime creates another disappointing soul-clone. This time the victim is an elderly Englishman named Cobblepot, whom Dracula-Prime renames Grimpod. When choosing this subject, the Dark Prince was unaware of his incompetence, and like Lestat before him is released to the world. This soul-clone however continues to believe that he is Dracula-Prime.

  Months after this failure, Dracula-Prime embarks on a new venture.

  Under his Sire’s supervision, Ygor is mated with 8 young Gypsy Maidens of the Kalderash clan.

    Since Ygor was the first product of the mating between a Soul Clone and a human the child was born with the deformity known as a hunchback. Dracula took measures to assure that this would not happen in future couplings.

   Ygor’s malformed appearance does however inspire Dracula to make his first born’s mission, when he becomes an adult, to infiltrate the Frankenstein family, learn their secrets and use this knowledge to one day create an army of monsters akin to Victor Frankenstein I’s Creation.

    Dracula will provide Ygor with a leather pouch of bolts, made from the same Star Stone that is a part of his ring.

1476
  

Recorded death of Vlad Tepes. This is most likely merely the date upon which the vampire faked his death. Vlad Tepes completes transaction with Rasalom. *

  Rasalom grants Vlad the eternal powers and weaknesses of a vampire. Vlad’s family ring is replaced by another, a gift from Rasalom. This new ring is emblazoned with his new crest, a shield with a D at its very center, proclaiming him Dracula.

Photo courtesy of Frau Rita Hussmann of Reigleberg. Frau Hussman was given the ring temporarily by one of Dracula’s ‘Soul- Clones** in an attempt to make her his bride. The photo was taken in 1940 by Frau Hussman’s husband the late Herr Carl Hussman, during her brief possession of it.


    Adding to this prize,Dracula is given a leather pouch containing a second ring which has a much larger crest but which seems to be fashioned for a feminine hand. The pouch also holds a dozen or so, small metal bolts and a broken scepter boasting a fierce looking wolf’s head as its hilt. The broken wooden rod was either comprised of ash or oak, accounts are uncertain. ***

 

Found in the scrapbook of a Frankenstein descendent, an old photograph of what our researchers believe to be one of the bolts carved from the star Stone

 

Photo of Wolfs Head hilt, obtained by agent at the cost of his life.

 

* For more information on this unspeakable, evil force consult the writings of F. Paul Wilson

** The controversial ‘Soul Clone’ theory will reveal it self in later entries.

   *** According to the studies of Professor Lorrimar van Helsing, the rings, bolts and wolf’s head were all carved from a meteorite that my colleague, Prof. D. Power, refers to as a Star Stone. All of these objects will become powerful tools enabling Dracula to rule his fellow creatures of darkness.

Prof. Power adds the following;    “Keeping the information, from “I AM DRACULA” in mind, it is possible that this Star Stone, was indeed, the meteor, which according to the Gypsy lore taught to Tzigane, was the vehicle which brought the demon Rasalom to our world. Since Rasalom is unexplainable this could also refer to some other malevolent entity whose powers and identity Rasalom subsumed.”

Transylvania.    Dracula-Prime summons the Lejos clone back to his castle. Dracula-Prime absorbs the energy from the ring and his true body arises.

   The Lejos-Clone is cached away to slumber with the others of his ilk, till he is needed once more. Shortly after Dracula-Primeawakens, a young Frenchman, spoiled and plump, travels to Transylvania simply asking to become a vampire.

    Dracula-Prime grants his wish, turning the obnoxious youth into a soul clone. As before the clone is assigned a name to humiliate, Nimrod-Lothos, he is named Lestat.

  

  The Lestat-Clone’s original psyche however is hard for Dracula-Prime to control as it seems to be in a constant, overwhelming desire for fornication, both with females and males. Dracula-Prime becomes weary of this clone and releases it to its own devices. *

   * Reports show that this former soul clone eventually made its way to New Orleans, Louisiana.

   In the 1970’s a romance novelist took the homeless vampire in to her home and in exchange for room and board, the vampire, told the writer exaggerated tales of his wretched life. The writer turned these tales into a series of best selling semi-pornographic novels. The Lestat-Clone, according to our sources was destroyed, in Sunnydale, CA. by the latest incarnation, of the mysterious Order of Slayers, in the year 1999.

Dracula’s (Vlad Tepes) Human Years

Text provided by Prof. Matthew Baugh, with notes provided by Prof. Dennis Power.

 

1428-1476

1428

  Dracula’s older brother Prince Mircea is born

 

1431

  Dracula’s father Vlad is inducted into the Order of the Dragon which is a Catholic order of knights. To acknowledge this honor, his supporters begin to refer to him as Vlad the Dragon or Vlad Dracul.

 Later that year Vlad Dracula (Son of the Dragon) is born.

    New information, brought to my attention by Prof. Power, shows that Vlad’s mother was a gypsy woman, and not Princess Cneajna. Vlad’s real mother not only had Gypsy blood, but was also a witch. She was burned to death for revealing to Vlad that she was indeed his true mother.

 

1435

  Dracula’s younger brother Radu the Handsome is born

 

1436

  Vlad Dracula becomes Voivode (Prince) of Wallachia

 

1440

  A gypsy girl visits young Vlad in his dreams and tells him that she will one day become his bride.

 

1442

  Vlad Dracul and his sons Radu and Vlad Dracula visit Gallipoli to pay tribute to the Ottoman Sultan Murad. The Sultan seizes them. Prince Mircea rules Wallachia in his father’s absence.

 

1443

  Dracul is released but his sons remain hostages.

 

1444

  Dracul participates in an anti-Turkish crusade alongside the Hungarian, John Hunyadi. Against expectations the Sultan allows Dracula and Radu to live.

 

1447

  Radu succumbs to the Sultan’s heir Muhmed and becomes his minion and lover.

    November   Hunyadi forms an alliance with Vladislav II, a member of the Danesti clan who are Draculs enemies. Mircea is tortured and buried alive and Vlad is killed attempting to escape his capital city.

 

1448

  Murad releases Dracula and gives him the support he needs to rule Wallachia as the Sultans minion.

  Dracula rules for two months but is forced to flee the country when Hunyadi regains the advantage.

 

1449

   Dracula spends several years living in Moldavia.

 

1451

  Sultan Murad dies and is succeeded by the much more militant Muhmed.

 

1453

  Mehmed’s forces sack Constantinople bringing the Byzantine Empire to an end.

 

1456

    Fearing the Sultan will invade Hungary next, Hunyadi allows Dracula to come out of exile as his vassal. Dracula’s knowledge of the Turks proves invaluable but Hunyadi dies of illness during the campaign.


   Dracula avenges himself on Vladislav II (now an ally of the Turks.) By August 22 Dracula is again Prince of Wallachia.

 

1457

  Dracula seized all the nobles who collaborated in the death of his father and brother. The strong he presses into brutal forced labor in building the walls of Castle Dracula, the infirm he has impaled This is Dracula’s favorite form of execution and it earns him the name Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler).
New information from Prof. Power reveals that when Vlad took over Wallachia, he heard tales that his father and brother had been cursed by gypsies to wander the world as the undead. He believed the story when Vlad Dracul returned to drink his son’s blood. Vlad was rescued by the young Gypsy woman of his dreams.    According to this report, witches have power to control vampires or just certain types of vampires. She summons a Strigoi, a demon or gargoyle that carried Vlad Dracul, Mircea and Mircea’s wife to Scholomance. Tzigane, the young gypsy woman became Vlad’s lover and his teacher in occult matters. She told him that Witches worship the Devil, who is not evil but is rather the savior of mankind, it is the so called False God that will lead mankind to ruination. This must be the event where Vlad is introduced to Rasalom.

  Rasalom is Satan or at least is whom Vlad refers to as Satan. Rasalom is merely one of the many beings who pretended to be the Devil using their occult powers to attract deluded worshippers. While still pretending to be the Devil, Rasalom would also pretend to be one of Vlad’s vassals.

    Vlad Dracula means son of the Dragon; it also means Son of the Devil. Vlad is prophesied to be Satan’s King on Earth meaning Rasalom’s chief agent in Earthly matters.

 

1458

  Dracula consolidates his power by wholesale executions of nobles, towns or villages suspected of disloyalty.

 

1459

  In his best known retributive action Dracula sets up a table near the base of Timpu Hill and dines as he watches thousands of people impaled or otherwise tortured to death. He is said to have dipped his bread in the blood of his victims, believing it would give him vitality.

 

1460

  Dracula responds to Pope Pius II’s call for a crusade. He also overcomes another rival for power named Dan III and personally beheads him.

 

1461
  Dracula wins an impressive string of victories over the Turks.

 

1462

  Sultan Mehmed and Radu the Handsome invade Wallachia with an army three times the size of Dracula’s.

  Dracula fights a defensive war using scorched earth and guerrilla tactics.   On June 17, he leads a daring raid that almost succeeds in killing the Sultan. When Mehmed’s army gives chase they run into a psychological warfare surprise. Dracula has set up a veritable forest of stakes on which he has impaled 20,000 prisoners. The Sultan eventually withdraws, having failed to capture Wallachia.    However Prince Radu incited the people and nobles to rebel against Dracula.

  They do and he is forced to flee to Hungary, where he is promptly arrested by King Matthias and held for a number of years in a comfortable house arrest. Having no real power, Dracula amuses himself during these years by torturing and impaling mice and small birds. Radu becomes Prince of Wallachia with Mehmed’s backing. *

   At Scholomance, Tzigane reveals that she is going to become a vampire. Vlad balks at first but eventually goes along with the ceremony. She is able to use her increased powers to enhance his occult teachings. After leaving Scholomance and traveling to Moldavia, they approach the ancient castle built for Satan’s King on Earth, it is known as Castle Dracula. It is here that Vlad accepts his destiny to be Satan’s Heir and takes the dark kiss from Tzigane so that should he fall in battle or die of disease he will become a vampire.

* New information shows that when Vladislav or Hunyadi returns to Wallachia, Tzigane and Vlad flee, going to the Vale of Flowers and Fog wherein lies the Scholomance (Devil’s School).Tzigane reveals that the valley had been formed upon the Devil’s (Rasalom) arrival on Earth. According to this source, the Devil had originally come to earth on a falling star (meteorite).

Prof. Power adds……   “Rasalom may have borrowed this origin story as well as his identity as the Devil. Inside the valley was a lake wherein lives a dragon, it only appears every once in a while and appears when Vlad stands near the lake. The valley was also inhabited by vampires. There are apparently two types of vampires. The first type are nearly mindless predators caring about little but their own appetites, these are those made into vampires without any previous training. The second type of vampire are those who receive occult training and mental preparations prior to becoming vampires. Once they become a vampire they have vast powers”

  For more theories by my esteemed colleague, Professor Dennis Power on the malevolent creatures known as Vampires click here

 

1475

Radu dies of syphilis. Dracula demonstrates that he is now loyal to Matthias by converting to Catholicism and marrying the Hungarian princess Ilona Szigali.

 

1476

  Dracula is appointed one of the captains of an anti-Turkish crusade and uses his tactics of terror to reclaim Wallachia. By November he is again the regions ruler. One of his first actions is to hide a vast treasure in a river and have all laborers and other witnesses to this act impaled.


According to the notes of Prof. Damien Harmon, as edited by Robert Lory, the true reason Vlad was amassing this horde of gold was for a time when this gold would be used as a weapon against the Old Ones. Whether or not this was speaking of a battle alongside or against Rasalom, Prof. Harmon was never able to ascertain. Research conducted as a collaboration between members of MONSTAAH and the Wilmarth Foundation have been unable to find any new clues in this matter.
