Dracula By Emily Braren Block 3 Dracula has multi-personalities in the novel Dracula, such as charming when he needed to be charming; and then cruel, nasty, and hostile, at other times.

In fact, these qualities often grew stronger when she was put under the influence of Dracula. (I know you must fight- and you must destroy even as you destroyed the fake Lucy…” Dracula page 328). Throughout the story, Mina wanted to help, and she showed several times her strength against Dracula, and her passion of doing the right thing, such as offering herself to be killed if she was possessed and turned into a full vampire and channeling the evil, demonized spirits of Dracula through herself to locate the vampire, Count Dracula
