Harker and Dracula would spend entire nights engaged in discussion or engrossed in English literature and periodicals or the maps of it's great cities. Each time this happened though, just before the dawn, the Dracula would halt everything and excuse himself, to attend to other business, leaving Harker alone in the empty castle, sometimes for days. After weeks of enduring this peculiar behaviour and witnessing first-hand many impossible and baffling phenomena, Harker comes to realise he is not a welcomed guest in Dracula's home but His prisoner. Worse yet, Harker discovers that his tormentor isnt quite the man he seems to be, but is a vampire: a dark creature of great evil who must feed upon the blood of the living.

Bistritz, May of 1893.
The English solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania in Hungary. He goes there on account of his superior Mr. Peter Hawkins to assist with the paperwork attached to the purchase - a mysterious foreign noble by the name of Dracula who lives in a castle near the Borgo-Pass and has bought the property known as "Carfax Abbey" in London. He recieves a letter from the count in the train on the border from Moldovia to Bukovina. Locals seem to be frightend of the castle and tell him that "the dead travel fast". He is given a crucifix by a local woman, and in good manner Harker accepts though he does not believe the superstition.
That night, the count's carrige awaits him at the Borgo-Pass. The coachman is strong and seems peculiar. When they are surrounded by wolves the coachman sends them away by a simple gesture. At Castle Dracula Jonathan is greeted by Dracula, a pale old man with a grey moustache, a high-bridged nose with fibrant red lips and dressed all in black greets him politely. Dracula does not dine and the next few days is nowhere to be seen during the day. Harker notices his host has hair growing on his palms and sharp protruding canine-teeth.
Dracula and Harker spend long nights talking only for the count to vanish at dawn. In the following days, Harker begins to feel uneasy. One evening, when Harker shaves he is startled by Dracula, whose likeness is not reflected in the mirror. From shock, Harker cuts his neck and Dracula reacts strangely to the blood. When Harker turns, Dracula sees the crucifix and is driven back. Furious, Dracula takes the mirror and drops it from the window breaking it on the pavement.
