Template:Castlevania character

A vampire artist in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. He is the main villain of the game, befitting his past as an artist prior to vampirism. He is the one who creates the many portraits which you travel through to get to different areas.


An elder vampire with a resemblance to Count Orlok, Brauner recreated Dracula's Castle using the souls of the dead from World War II in order to destroy humanity. Unlike most other vampires in the series, he has no loyalty to Dracula due to his repeated failures in the past. Brauner disdains humanity because his two real daughters were killed 30 years ago, during World War I, and he has deluded the vampiric Stella and Loretta (and possibly himself as well) into believing that they are his daughters. After the player defeats him in battle, Death comes in and finishes him off, saying his presence is what kept Dracula sealed.

Game Specific Information

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

Brauner appears in the game, Harmony of Despair, as the boss of the fourth chapter. His attacks are the same.


  • Although Brauner is a vampire who seeks humanity's destruction and used the souls of the dead of World War II to revive Dracula's Castle, he does not seek to revive (nor does he intent to serve) the castle's Dark Lord (instead he takes the Castle's power and army for himself), Dracula who Brauner keeps under seal. The reason Brauner doesn't revive Dracula is because he of constant failures to destroy humanity. Brauner is one a handful of monsters/vampires who do not serve him (like Frozen Half & Time Reaper)and is opposed to Dracula's status as Dark Lord (similar to Galamoth).
  • Ironically, Dracula is partially responsible for the deaths of Brauner's two daughters (which fueled Brauner's hatred for humanity), as Dracula's niece Elizabeth Bartley had the Crown Prince of Austria assassinated, leading Europe into the chaos of World War I (which took the lives of Brauner's two daughters) in order to revive her uncle, only for both to be defeated by John Morris and Eric Lecarde (the same man Brauner would later murder). Brauner, however, apparently held humanity responsible for the War (it is unknown if he was aware of Bartley's role in starting the war or not) that led to the deaths of his beloved daughters.
  • Despite being enemies, both Brauner and Eric Lecarde have lost loved ones due to the actions of Elizabeth Bartley. She turned Eric's lover Gwendolyn into a vampire who Eric was forced to destroy, and started the war which took the lives of Brauner's daughters (whose souls Brauner believed had been reincarnated into Eric's two daughters, Stella and Loretta).
