The Covenant with the Vampire was a pact with Count Dracula, his family, and the people of his town. It said that as long as the oldest son of each generation of his family, as well as the people of the village, would be his servants, he would not attack the village. The covenant was broken by Dracula's descendant, Arkady Tsepesh, who refused to serve Dracula, as well as to turn over his son for the servitude. After that, Dracula reaked havoc on the village.
