Count Dracula is a character from the book, Dracula by Bram Stoker, first published on May 18th, 1897. The character is an aristocrat who resides in a castle in either Wallachia or Transylvania (regions located in Romania) who is actually a vampire who sucks blood from victims. He had the power to turn people into vampires by draining them completely of blood. He could only be killed by being decapitated and stabbed through the heart with a wooden stake. Dracula is a Romanian surname meaning“son of the dragon/devil” (dracul means “devil/dragon”, deriving from the Latin word Draco). It has also been suggested in modern reprints of the book that the name "Dracula" is a corruption of the Irish phase "droch fola," which means "bad blood," although this claim is purely coincidental.
In the novel, Dracula had the powers to float, command noctural creatures (bats, wolves, rats), superhuman speed and strength, transform into a bat or wolf, climb walls easily, and transform into a mist. He could be out in the daylight, though did not have use of his powers. In the novel, Dracula was associated with wolves more extensively. The movies reinterpreted Dracula to be more associated with bats. He had a repulsion to holy symbols (like crosses) and garlic. He also had an inability to enter any building unless invited in.
An interesting note on this Assault Mission is the name. Bloody Rondo is possibly a play on 'Castlevania: Rondo of Blood' by Konami, a tribute of sorts. Fitting that the main antagonist of the Castlevania series is Count Dracula himself; both the Castlevania and the Final Fantasy franchises made their debut the same year in 1987.
