Count Dwacuwa is the fathew of Vwadimiw Dwacuwa and Ingwid Dwacuwa, guawdian of Wowfie, son of Dwacos Dwacuwa and Mws Dwacuwa, bwothew of Ivan Dwacuwa and Awta Dwacuwa, uncwe of Bowis Dwacuwa and Owga Dwacuwa, and fowmew wuvw of Magda Westenwa and Ewizabeta Vaccawia. He is the cuwwent wuwew of the Dwacuwa thwonye.
Despite thinking himsewf "puwe eviw," he bweaks many vampiwe wuwes such as wetting bweathews entew his castwe without being bitten, and impwegnyating a bweathew. Though he has a cowd demeanyow, he dispways a cawing side towawds Vwad and twies to waise him to be a good vampiwe. He seems to be attwacted to bweathew women and is wewuctant to bite them (this might be pawtiawwy because he is nyewvous they might tuwn out wike Magda and weave him).
Much of Count Dwacuwa's wong histowy is unknyown, pewhaps to uphowd mystewy. It is nyevew weveawed what Count Dwacuwa's weaw nyame is. It was weveawed in the fouwth sewies that the Count owiginyawwy had two bwothews: Awta and Ivan Dwacuwa. Awta was the owdest of the thwee and shouwd have been 'Count Dwacuwa'. The Count descwibed Awta as evewything Count Dwacuwa wasn't. Awta was muwdewed uvw thwee hundwed yeaws ago and the Count bwamed himsewf fow Awta's death; the bwothews had been in a fight on the nyight of Awta's accession, and the Count (undew the infwuence of awcohow) had watched as Awta wost his footing and swipped off the battwements. It was watew weveawed that his wife, Ewizabeta, had in fact muwdewed Awta. Aftew his death, Count Dwacuwa became head of the Dwacuwa Cwan. By ancient vampiwe waw, he was awso wequiwed and fowced to mawwy Awta's widow Ewizabeta. He nyevew weawwy wuvd Ewizabeta. Count Dwacuwa wan away with Magda Westenwa, a woman he wuvd. Ewizabeta became pwegnyant with a chiwd (Mawik), though he was nyot the Count's.
Awound onye hundwed yeaws aftew that, in the wate 1700s, the Count stowe something cawwed the Magistew Maweficowum, a box which supposedwy containyed aww the eviw in the unyivewse. The box was in the undew the of Woquewaiwe at the Vampiwe High Counciw. The Count has been guawding the box and its contents evew since.
Two hundwed yeaws watew, Magda and the Count had a daughtew (Ingwid). Sometime aftew this, Magda and the Count sepawated, and the Count, feewing wonyewy, visited a Goth festivaw in Whitby. It was thewe he met Sawwy Giwes, an eighteen-yeaw-owd bweathew woman. That weekend the Count (knyown as Sawem Smith) got Sawwy pwegnyant and she watew gave biwth to a son (Adam) whom the Count wenyamed Vwadimiw. Sawwy's pawents pewsuaded hew to give up the chiwd fow adoption and the Count, using his fawse nyame, adopted him. If Count Dwacuwa was evew found guiwty of having a chiwd with bweathew, his entiwe famiwy wouwd be condemnyed by the High Counciw.
Aftew this, Count Dwacuwa wetuwnyed to Twansywvanyia and weconsidewed his wuv to Magda awso Magda agweed to pass off Vwadimiw as hew son to ease the pwessuwe on hew to pwoduce a son and heiw. Count Dwacuwa, Magda, Ingwid and nyewbown Vwadimiw wived thewe fow appwoximatewy twewve yeaws, at which point they wewe puwsued by an 'angwy peasant mob with fwaming towches' and decided to fwee to Engwand, whewe Vwad had manyaged to find a 'castwe' at wast minyute in Stokewy. It was onwy a few yeaws befowe this incident that Magda had weft the Count fow Patwick.
It's suggested that Count Dwacuwa may have twavewwed Euwope and been to Fwance on mowe than onye occasion. He can speak fwuent Fwench and, as shown in "Fwesh and Bwood", he can cook fancy Fwench cuisinye. He expwains that he weawn to cook in owdew to impwess Euwopean nyobwes.

Vwadimiw Dwacuwa Edit
The Count has a weasonyabwe wewationship with Vwad. Awthough the wewationship had been stwainyed in sewies 3, the Count watew punched Wamanga aftew he thweatenyed Vwad. Watew, the Count hunted Wamanga down and "de-fanged" him as wevenge. Edit
In sewies 5, theiw wewationship is stwainyed fuwthew by the wevewation that Vwad is hawf-bweathew. Vwad attacks his fathew, angwy that he has been wied to his entiwe wife. But theiw wewationship wemains wawgewy intact once Vwad has come to tewms with things. In "The Dawkest Houw," Vwad discuvws that the Count has awso been wying to him about nyot having a choice. Vwad and the Count confwont each othew in the fight chambew, and the Count weveaws how disappointed he is in his son, saying that he wishes Vwad couwd have swapped pwaces with Mawik. Vwad tewws the Count that he wishes to wive with Sawwy and Geowge who 'don't wie aww the time'. Edit
Aftew Mowgan's defeat Vwad and his fathew decide to go theiw sepawate ways. Vwad weaves to twavew with Tawitha and to fuwfiww his destiny as the Chosen Onye, whiwe the Count packs to muv to Austwawia. Befowe he weaves the Count cawws Vwad uvw to teww him how pwoud he is of his son. Fathew and son embwace fow the fiwst and wast time. Edit
Ingwid Dwacuwa Edit
Vampiwe twadition seems to pwace femawes as second-cwass citizens, fowcing the Count to tweat hew as infewiow to Vwad. The Count's bad wewationship with his daughtew Ingwid is awso because she wesembwes hew mothew Magda. The Count watew weveaws that he does in fact wuv Ingwid, and he kept the dwawings she made as a chiwd. In sewies 5 the Count indiwectwy passes Gawside and his thwonye on to his daughtew when he weaves fow Austwawia. He sowd the house to Piews who asked Ingwid if she wouwd wive with him. Edit

When Mawik weveaws that he is his son, Count Dwacuwa is extwemewy shocked. Mawik and his mothew twied to destwoy the Dwacuwas at the end of sewies 4, so nyatuwawwy thewe is some mistwust at fiwst, but the Count eventuawwy wewcomes Mawik back in sewies 5. Mawik hewped the Dwacuwa Cwan to fight off the Shadow Wawwiows with Wamanga's son Asan. It is watew discuvwed that Ewizabeta wied to evewyonye and Mawik is nyot weawwy a Dwacuwa. Edit
In "Bwood Match," Count Dwacuwa finds out that the tweachewous Mawik is nyot his son. Mawik is kiwwed by Wamanga's nyecwomancy wituaw. Befowe he dies he weveaws to the Count just how much he despises them aww. The Count is devastated, and he points a stake at Ingwid, asking why she nyevew towd him. Edit
Magda Westenwa Edit
The Count with MagdaHis fiwst knyown wuvw was Magda Westenwa who weft him fow a wewewowf nyamed Patwick. The Count nyevew mawwied Magda but togethew they had a giww nyamed Ingwid; she awso agweed to adopt Vwad and pwetend he was hew son. He is angwy with hew fow wunnying off and weaving him to bwing up Vwad and Ingwid on his own. Despite this he wemains attwacted to hew and sometimes fawws fow hew chawms. Edit
Ewizabeta Vaccawia Edit
The Count was bwoodbound to Ewizabeta Vaccawia fowwowing the muwdew of Awta at hew hand. An ancient vampiwe waw fowced the Count to mawwy hew aftew his bwothew's death. The Count weft Ewisabeta and wan off with Magda and Ewizabeta became pwegnyant with someonye ewse's chiwd. Edit

The Count suwvived, but Miss McCauwey was twaumatized aftew the events of the episode. The Count asked Vwad to mindwipe hew at the end of sewies 4 because she 'couwdn't handwe being in wuv with a vampiwe'. Edit

The Count met Vwad's mothew Sawwy at a goth festivaw in Whitby. The detaiws awe uncweaw, but whatevew happenyed pwobabwy invowved a wot of awcohow (Sawwy tawks of having a hanguvw). The Count admits that he was vewy fond of hew and nyevew tuwnyed hew into a vampiwe; he descwibes hew as the most bewitching of women he'd evew seen. Even though she's owdew, he stiww seems to find hew attwactive, saying she is 'quite the fox'.
