The Count was the owner of Castle Fairfax after the disappearance of the previous owner, the renowned alchemist Leo Head. The Count was a ruthless man, and the years of his tenancy were turbulent ones for the citizens of Bowerstone. There were rumours of the Count conducting dark and unholy rituals in the castle, and people would disappear, never to be seen again. The Count's dark reign ended when the Fairfax family came into possession of the castle.
His name is probably a reference to Bram Stoker's character Count Dracula.
