As the article states, Dracula and vampires have been mentioned in the series so why is this article canon-in-training? Shakespeare isn't CiT and they are both real world characters mentioned but not seen in the show. -- Matt 15:06, 13 December 2008 (CST)

Yeah, but Shakespeare was mentioned as an historical figure. Dracula was mentioned as a pop culture reference with no suggestion that he was real. In fact, one of the two times he was mentioned it was actually a reference to "Dracula's daughter". I figure an article on vampires probably wouldn't be canon-in-training, though. -- Supermorff 18:56, 13 December 2008 (CST)

Real World History 'Upgrade'

So, I've been looking over this article for the first time in a couple of years and I can't help but think the "Real World History" section in particular is heavily slanted towards Vlad the Impaler with only the bottom two paragraphs addressing Bram Stoker's Dracula. Given that more recent scholarship suggests the connection between Stoker's fictional Transylvanian vampire and the historical Wallachian warlord has been greatly exaggerated, would anyone object to me re-hauling the article to be more novel-centric?

I don't know about any potential dismissal on the Vlad the Impaler info (given that we remain unaware on which direction GregW will ultimately take with the character), but any additional information regarding Stroker's original novel can only be a benefit to the page :) --Pheon 19:06, 14 July 2015 (PDT)
Indeed, I guess what I'm asking is do we want this to be an article about the vampire who may or may not be Vlad the Impaler, or Vlad the Impaler who may or may not be a vampire? Algernon 13:31, 15 July 2015 (PDT)
Just took another gander at the Dracula and Vampire pages, and if you frame the question that way, I personally lean towards the former, especially since we seem to know more about vampires in the Gargoyles Universe than the GU's take on Dracula. Of course, I hope I'm not the only one to throw in my two cents. --Pheon 18:58, 15 July 2015 (PDT)
