Ideas & Observations -- Reference Lists


Reference Lists in Progress:

Note: Episodes 19 and 20 both involve unreal sequences; items which emerge from them, as they can't be trusted or are actually untrue, are marked with an asterisk.

Thanks to Sarah T. for providing additions to many of the lists for episodes 7-20!

    Now dead: fell on stake during fight with kids. Note: Or is she a vampire? She has fangs (do zombies have fangs?) and seems to be the leader of the two male zombies. However, I put her on the zombie list because vampires on the series look sophisticated and intelligent, while she is a mess.)

Vampire Characteristics:
The episode references refer to when the characteristic is first shown if it is common; if it unusual, they refer to all the episodes in which it appears. Note: It is unknown whether less powerful vampires are able to do all of the things Lucard can, so a few of the characteristics may not be universal.


Lucard's Ties:
"Nice tie." All Lucard's ties, and other wardrobe elements (my specialty is collar styles). As Sarah T. points out, "I think it's, um, critical to keep track of Lucard's ties. After all, he is the power-dresser par excellence...but he has a relatively restricted wardrobe, as he dresses formally almost all the time. All that black and white! Not that it isn't gorgeous on him, but it is predictable. The tie (and on occasion--the vampire movie star episode, for example--the hat) is his one chance to express himself."

Lucard's (And Klaus's) Shakespeare Quotes:
All the Shakespeare lines Lucard and Klaus have quoted, and their correct references. Link to the original quotes in context and see for yourself--Klaus is better than Lucard at siting Shakespeare, oddly enough.
