Count Vostok [1] was a kind Vampire who called the Ghostbusters after seeing two bat-like ghosts.

HistoryEdit

A few years after purchasing a haunted castle in Boldavia, in Central Europe, Count Vostok was concerned when two large bat demons terrorized the neighboring village. [2] [3] He purchased and sent four Concorde jet tickets for the Ghostbusters. Eight hours in the air and four hours by train later, the Ghostbusters arrived and met Vostok. [4]

When the entities didn't register on the P.K.E. Meter, it turned out that they were actually holograms created by Dr. Nicholas Van Helden in an attempt to make everyone hate Vostok and so that he could kill him. [5] The Ghostbusters succeeded in foiling Van Helden's plans and saving Count Vostok. Vostok has revealed that Bram Stoker based his novel Dracula on the feud between his family and Van Helsing's, as evidenced by the similarities of the novel. [6] [7] [8]

PersonalityEdit

Count Vostok is kind and understanding, unlike most Vampires. He has said that he satiated his natural vampiric need for blood by drinking artificial blood, which is fortunately just as nutritional to Vampires as real blood. [9]

PowersEdit

Count Vostok can fly, turn into a human-sized bat, and emit lasers from his eyes. He also has other powers Vampires usually have.

TriviaEdit

  • Count Vostok believed he was the last living Vampire. It appears he was unaware of the group of Vampires living in and under Lupusville (though it should be noted that Ray Stantz said Count Vostok was the first vampire they ever encountered and in "No One Comes to Lupusville," it was stated the Ghostbusters had never before encountered Vampires). [10] [11]
  • On page three of Ghostbusters International #7, in panel 1, there is non-canon reference on the car rental sign to Vostok in the top center.
