Introduction

Bram Stoker (ブラム・ストーカー, Buramu Sutōkā?) is a member of the Decay of Angels.[1]

Appearance

Bram has a vampire-like appearance which includes having fangs. He has long wavy hair that reaches below his shoulders. He also has a distinctive triangular-shaped pointed ears similar to elven ears. Two scars can also be seen on his face, one on each side of his face, and there are distinct markings beneath his eyes. He has no lower body ever since Ōchi Fukuchi severed his head from his body, but a Sword of the Holy Cross can be seen attached to his lower body.

Personality

Bram appears to have a disdain towards insolent people. After being dubbed as a calamity eight years ago, he decides not to add any more to his kin and finds no interest whatsoever in joining Fukuchi's scheme of inflicting the world with chaos. However, when threatened, Bram ends up obeying Fukuchi's orders regardless how much he does not wish to go against his personal vow of turning no one else into his kind.

Ability

Bram's ability name is currently unknown. However, it is an infection-type ability which turns whoever he bites into a vampire. It also makes the victim the next aggressor. The infection rate of the ability is fast, in which it surpasses the speed of the South American werewolf incident.

As seen with Akutagawa, it is possible that his ability also allows him to bring back the dead back to life by turning them into his "kin".

Background

In the past, Bram was an earl in Northern Europe. Despite formerly being a human, his cells had been mutated due to an ability, which then resulted in him being transformed into a blood-sucking species and known as "Dracula" (吸血種 (ドラキュリア), Dorakyuria?).

Eight years ago, Bram became known as one of the "ten calamities to destroy mankind". At some point, he encountered and clashed with Fukuchi, resulting to the latter severing his lower body.[1]

Plot

Decay of Angels Arc

Bram commanded by Fukuchi.

He is brought by Fukuchi, contained in a coffin, after Ryunosuke Akutagawa's death from their battle at the ship. After waking up, he asks Fukuchi how long has he been sleeping to which Fukuchi replies that it's been only two weeks. Just as he was about to go back to sleep, he is stopped by Fukuchi saying that the next time he wakes up, he will be busy. Bram replies that he doesn't know about it and tells Fukuchi that he is a being that sleeps much and recites that the insolent ones must be cursed. However, he is suddenly pulled up by Fukuchi, revealing that he has no lower body and only a sword is attached to him.

Fukuchi then cuts their conversation and tells Bram that he even prepared a meal for him as a sign that they are comrades. Hearing this, Bram glances at Akutagawa's body, but he declines. He tells Fukuchi that, eight years ago, he was dubbed as a calamity and for this, he no longer wants to add to his kin and will no longer drink his blood. He then further tells Fukuchi that if he wants to burn the world, he should do it himself instead. Bram is then told by Fukuchi that as you age, you start to use people. Bram is seen struggling after Fukuchi tighly holds the handle of the sword which can make Bram's brain turn into ashes. Bram then shows his fangs and proceeds to bite Akutagawa.[1]

Bram is seen again, waken up Fukuchi and orders him to bite Deputy Commissioner Yasui. However, in exchange of the plan being successful, he demands Fukuchi to give him a thing called "radio" since he states that it grows tedious in the coffin but before he even finishes his sentence, Fukuchi closes his coffin.
