Count Rugen meets with Jim Moriarty, only for Dracula to interrupt the proceedings. Rugen is suspicious, so he thrusts a cross into Dracula's hands. As the Count expected, Dracula begins screaming in agony. Rugen runs away, but Dracula tracks him down. Rugen hurls a concealed knife into Dracula, wounding the vampire. But Rugen makes the mistake of impaling Dracula with a steel sword, a tactic that has no effect on a vampire. Rugen can only watch in horror as Dracula slides up the blade and drains Rugen's blood.
