Alucard is half-human, half vampire due to the relationship of his father and mother—his father a vampire named Dracula and his mother a human named Lisa. Alucard became popular after the release of the hugely popular Castlevania: Symphony of The Night video game released in 1997. He was originally named Adrian Fahrenheit Tepes. Unfortunately, his mother was tragically killed because she was mistaken for a witch.
Then, he was raised by his evil father who taught him the dark arts and to hunt humans. But Adrian remembered what his mother told him. He remembered how humans were weak and suffered just as much. This led to him having a soft side despite being a great warrior. Eventually, he ran away from his father and began protecting humans. He saved them from his father’s army and adopted the name of Alucard, which is his father’s name in reverse, showing he is completely opposite him. The video game has since been adapted into a series that is featured on Netflix.
