Name: Castlevania City
Population: 10 million people
Like a European version of Gotham City, Castlevania City stands as an example of the macabre and lies on the mortal foundation ruins of what was once the penultimate site of Dracula's stronghold that the city was named after. After Dracula was purportedly defeated in legend and the fortress destroyed, the castle foundations and its surrounding territories were left alone due to fear, till people came and began to establish towns and such areas, in part defiance against the ancient enemy of their past. From fear and their defiance of the dark, the city grew until it became the ghoulish place the world knows it today.
Rife with the Supernatural community, their presence warps and taints the already stained grounds and works to create a place where the Night is master and Blood, the currency in which dark deals are made and sealed.
To the modern world, its known as a place most influenced by its current backers. The Pharmaceutical superpower; Umbrella Inc, The Ventrue-backed Opera House and the Cronqvist-Tepes family line, the oldest family in the city.
More clandestine factions include the Brotherhood of Light: Monster Hunters dedicated to keeping the city as safe as possible and the Black Dragon Clan: Criminal weapons dealers primarily.
The Catacombs: Castlevania City Underground remains of Castle Dracula.
Umbrella Corp. Sector
Corporation sector in which the famous pharmaceutical company works its experiments without the watchdogs that other cities might have. Its like its own mini-community in which the workers of Umbrella Inc. live out their lives without venturing beyond into the wider city
The Kennel: Ghetto area, predominantly Roma population here.
A black skyscraper/hotel under the thumb of Castlevania City's most predominant vampire clan, the Ventrue. The lobby and subsequent first quarter floors are geared towards the party crowd among other pleasures. The higher levels are where the principal bloodsuckers live and conduct their clan business among themselves and their allies.
The CC Opera House
In a city so full of the bourgeoisie Ventrue, it was only a matter of time before the Castlevania City Opera House soon became famous throughout the world. Its performances are spoken of in the same tone as Broadway, with many musicals, concertos and other performances held within its halls.
The Church of Saint Giles: Patron Saint of Lepers and Long-Sufferers, one of the oldest structures in the city.
Brigid Manor: A mansion located in the gated district of Castlevania City. Local HQ of the Brotherhood of Light, an organization of those who vowed to rid the world of all monsters. Dracula was their greatest foe and upon his defeat, they swore they would not rest till all of his kind was gone from the face of the Earth. The principal enemy of the Ventrue clan in the city.
Abandoned by-and-large by the world, its current resident an heir to the family name. Lives largely as a hermit. The manor is located on the outskirts of the city proper, out in the countryside adjacent a forest.
