Draculaura Monster High Student
1,599 (I can’t wait for my Sweet 1600th)
Just turned 1,600
My dad calls me Draculaura but to my friends I’m Ula D. I love to splash my black outfits with some cheery pink and I even carry a frilly umbrella so I can take an occasional walk in the sun.
Since I can’t see my reflection in a mirror, I have to leave the house not knowing if my clothes and makeup are just right. Of course after 1,599 years of practice I’ve gotten pretty good at it.
Count Fabulous is my BFF (Bat Friend Forever), he’s a very proud and proper bat but I just can’t help but dressing him in the cutest little outfits.
I love smiling, laughing, and encouraging my friends.
Biggest Pet Peeve:
The lack of vegan selections in the Monster High™ creepateria is so sad.
Fav School Subject:
Creative Writing. It gives me a chance to write sweet stories about my friends.
Least Fav Subject:
Geography. After 1,599 years I’ve been everywhere…twice.
I’m a vegan, no icky blood for me, so it’s fruits, vegetables and a lot of iron supplements.
Frankie Stein and Clawdeen Wolf.
A thing from Fear The Book
"I can recite all the elements in reverse order, wanna hear?"
-Draculaura in Fear the Book
A little bit about her...
Draculaura is the 1,600 year old daughter of Dracula. She is a 'vegan' vampire, meaning she doesn't drink blood or eat meat, and she appears to be hemophobic, which means she is afraid of and cannot even say the word, "blood" without fainting. She is called "Lala" by her friends and her boyfriend Clawd Wolf, who is her best friend Clawdeen's older brother.
In the webisodes and the Monster High special New Ghoul @ School, Draculaura's voice is provided by Debi Derryberry.
In the music video for the Monster High Fright Song, there are several character analogues who recieved creative interpretation by the video crew. The vampire girl is played by Melanie Mah.
Draculaura is the daughter of Dracula. While it was originally presumed that her father and the titular character of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula were the same person, Draculaura's School's Out Diary states that her father was already an ancient vampire "when togas were first coming into fashion" (possibly a reference to the wise Roman vampire Marius from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles book series), and that the famous Dracula we know of today was a lesser vampire who stole Draculaura's father's identity and wreaked havoc until he was destroyed, which Draculaura views as his just desserts.
Draculaura's design nevertheless borrows a great deal from the appearance of Bela Lugosi as this "impostor" Dracula. The Dracula film, directed by Tod Browning, was released by Universal in 1931. It is based on the stage play of the same name by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston, which in turn is based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker.
Gloria Holden in Dracula's Daughter (1936)
Added by Lehall
There was a sequel released in 1936 titled Dracula's Daughter starring Gloria Holden as Countess Marya Zaleska.
While Draculaura may not be based directly on the Gloria Holden character, her character design takes many cues from traditional portrayals of Dracula and vampire-related characters; her skin is pale, she has visible fangs and dark hair, and she speaks with a light Romanian/Transylvanian accent. Additionally, the narrator of the famous pre-Dracula vampire story Carmilla is named Laura, a possible influence on Draculaura's own name. Her pointed ears may be a nod to Max Schrek's Count Orlok from the 1922 film Nosferatu
In the Monster High books, Draculaura appers to have a crush on D.J Hyde (Holt Hyde) but in the webisodes, she has a crush on Heath Burns. Draculaura is now dating Clawd Wolf, Clawdeen Wolf's older brother.
Draculaura and her father live on the same street as Holt Hyde/Jackson Jekyll "in what is either a gigantic mansion or a small castle. I guess you'd have to go with mansion, but only because there isn't a moat and a drawbridge." Draculaura gets along with her father, although she thinks he is very old fashioned, (he bought her corsets and Victorian dresses for back to school clothes.)Every year he tries to convince her to be a more traditional vampire, including keeping nighttime hours and drinking blood. Her School's Out diary reveals that Draculaura is in fact Dracula's adoptive daughter, not biological, and that he took in her and her mother "when no one else would." She also reveals that her father is not the Dracula Bram Stoker wrote about. In the books, she lives with not only her parents (in which her father is the leader of the RAD's), but her grandparents, and other relatives (in Ghoul Next Door her uncle was mentioned).
Draculaura is beast friends with Clawdeen Wolf and Frankie Stein.
Draculaura's pet is named Count Fabulous. She likes to dress him up in pink, coordinated outfits. The only form of insects that Draculaura will let him eat are small insects, like mosquitoes.
Draculaura often forms crushes on many different boys. In the webisode The Hot Boy, she forms a crush on Heath Burns and is also seen dancing with him at the Justin Biter concert in New Ghoul @ School, but is over him by the episode Fur Will Fly, calling him "conceited." However, he later "wears her down" about going to the Spirit Rally Dance with him in Why We Fright; she chooses not to go with him after he mocks her in next webisode.
She was also attracted to a mysterious student known as "The Perfect Guy" in the webisode Horrorscope. His face is never seen, and he seems to have been a character exclusive to that one episode.
In her diary, she also had a crush on Jackson Jekyll, which seemed to be reciprocated. However, nothing came of this relationship due to Jackson forgetting all of their plans for evening dates.
Draculaura is currently dating Clawd Wolf, in both the Wave 3 Diaries and in the webisodes, and has been officially since Fear Pressure. Draculaura began to see Clawd in a different light after Frankie pitched the idea of going to the dance with him instead of settling for Heath Burns. She seemed nervous about the idea of dating her best friend's brother, but figures he's worth it in the end.
In the Monster High books, Draculaura had a crush on DJ Hyde, but said that she would get over it when she noticed that Hyde liked Frankie. By the third book, she and Clawd had developed a secret relationship.
Draculaura in the Monster High books
In the Monster High book series, Draculaura is often called Lala by her friends, while Draculaura is her RAD (Regular Attribute Dodgers) name. She is described as often having make-up smudges, because she can't see her reflection, and is often wearing cashmere and spending her time in the steam room because she is always cold due to having no pulse. She has pale skin, pink highlighted hair (which matches her makeup and outfits), and fangs.
Draculaura is a vegan in both the books and the webisodes. At one point she was complaining to Blue (Lagoona) that there was a lack of vegan options in the cafeteria (a reference to her pet peeve), and her consuming iron supplements. According to her, Melody's family rented their house from Lala's grandparents.
In Ghoul Next Door she takes part in the documentary of the same name. But her part of the documentary is audio only, and pictures were put in her place due to her not showing up on film.
In Where There's a Wolf, There's a Way, she is sent out to her grandparents' house, much to her dismay. However, she shows up at Clawdeen's hideout with her father's permission, where she develops a crush on Clawd and even convinces him to let her give him a mohawk. She is present at Clawdeen's party, where she flaunts her RAD status also.
Although Back And Deader Than Ever isn't released until May 2012, it will feature Draculaura as the cental character. Her chapters feature her father trying to put a RAD-only school, which she is opposed to.
Hope you enjoyed!!!
