My entry for HeroMachine's Character Design Contest #391.
Dracul Niculescu was born with a strange mark on his forehead. It was a symbol of his destiny: to become a Solomonar, a wizard able to control the winds, thunder and hail and ride dragons. As an infant, he was taken away to a remote cavern in the Carpathian Mountains, where he learned the way of the Solomonarii and how to control his mystical powers using his magical axe.
Now Dracul lives a double life, pretending to be a beggar in the streets of Bucharest, a disguise that serves both to hide his true identity and to test the goodnes in the hearts of the Romanian citizens. To those who aid him, he becomes a guardian, protecting them with his powers. To those who mistreat him, or do so to others on his presence, he summons the powers of nature to punish them.
