Voicu Sr. is a character from Nocturne that was mentioned in the first BloodRayne game.


Voicu Sr. in the guise of a human is an old, short and stout man. His head is bald, eyes are tired and deep set, and his white beard and mustache are short but thick.

He wears a black vest over white shirt, and dark gray pants with black shoes.


Upon first meeting him, he appears to be a kind, humble and welcoming man. Proud of his people and home, he refuses to leave despite the suffering brought upon them but willing to accept the help of The Stranger and Svetlana Lupescu.

When revealing his true nature at the castle, he had deceived his helpers for his own benefit. His aura was strong enough to intimidate Svetlana. He was very confident in his strength and power, not feeling threatened by either Svetlana or Stranger. Despite his deception, he showed mercy and gratitude to them both, allowing them to leave the castle peacefully with Nadia, but left them with a very clear warning to never step foot in his castle again.


Voicu Sr. settled the area that became known as Castle Gaustadt, after Andronicus Comnenus' reign in the 12th century. Voicu was the count in Castle Gaustadt, until his son, also known as Voicu, managed to separate his father from the Yathgy long enough to weaken him. Once weak enough, Voicu Jr. overthrew Voicu Sr., banishing him and the vampires loyal to him to the village of Falkenburg near the castle.

Voicu became known as the mayor in the village waiting for a hundred years for his son to misuse the Yathgy and kill himself, so he could come back into power. Voicu forcefully tried to take his rightful place back, but failed several times. The werewolves who surrounded the forest were not fond of either side and would also clash with both of the Voicu vampires as they waged their civil war.


In 1927, Stranger and Svetlana Lupescu were sent to Germany to retrieve the Yathfoe-Gyoule stone from Castle Gaustadt. They spoke to Voicu Sr. as he played the part of the Mayor of Falkenburg. He gave them some history and background on the castles current master. After killing Voicu Jr., and seeing the portrait of Voicu Sr., they figured out that the mayor had lied to them earlier and is in fact the real Count Voicu. Voicu also appeared and explained that the reason why he wasn't killed was because his son didn't know how to properly use the Yathgy. Although a bit angry that the Stranger had killed his minions and all the brides he had collected over the millennium, Voicu allowed Stranger and Svetlana to leave the castle as a reward for helping him get the castle and Yathgy back. Voicu did offer Svetlana to stay with him and join his ranks, but she declined his offer. For the next 11 years, Voicu Sr. was left to his own devices.

In 1938, Hedrox the Infinite and his vampire clan, the Gegengeist Gruppe of the Nazis lead by Jürgen Wulf, as well as the dhampir Rayne all converged at Castle Gaustadt in search of the Yathgy, revealed as Heart of Beliar. At some point during the invasion, Hedrox managed to find and overpower Voicu, throwing him to his death in the water below the windmill near the castle. Hedrox found that the relic was on Voicu's crown, but didn't know how to use it.


Voicu carried no equipment with him. However, he had only one item that he cared about and kept close to him at all times, especially after regaining it.

  • Yathfoe-Gyoule Stone: Also known as the Yathgy and later revealed to actually be the Heart of Beliar, it is the most sacred object in the Vampire world. Legends say that it grants the Vampire (and possibly a dhampir) who wields it absolute immunity to all vampiric weaknesses and the ability to kill man or beast with only mere thought. How the stone grants it’s power is unknown, as Voicu Sr. knew the only proper method. He kept it upon his crown as a symbol of his power.

Powers and Abilities[]

Voicu is stated to be a very powerful vampire, making his son look like a “frail degenerate“ in comparison. Although he doesn’t show very much of his power.

  • Immortality: He’s lived for centuries and can’t be killed by conventional means.
  • Teleportation: He managed to transport himself all the way from Falkenburg to inside the inner sanctum of his dungeon in the castle.


  • Voicu's most prominent appearance is in the game Nocturne, where most of his history is revealed.
  • In BloodRayne, Voicu is killed off-screen and only his skeleton is shown.
