Former habitat and range included Carpathia. Bohemia, present-day Hungary and Transylvania, where they found an uncommon association with the late Count Dracula, eventually manifesting themselves over the centuries into the semblance of servants of this unpopular aristocrat. The sole known survivor of this species, Ignatz Maximilian, resides oftwhiles in the UK as the retainer of HE The Lord S.
