When Bram Stoker unleashed Dracula on the literary world, the vampire had a wide variety of supernatural powers including super strength, shapeshifting, hypnotism, weather control and making victims into his vampire companion.
But did you know that Stoker had originally created another power for the original vampire?
According to Stoker’s notes, Dracula was also to have the ability not to have his likeness appear on canvas. A character named “Francis Aytown” is described as a painter who would try to paint the likeness of the infamous Count in the novel. However, the image wouldn’t appear on the canvas.
Stoker eventually dropped the character and this power from the final manuscript.
