Magister Maleficorum


Count Dracula had been guarding it for around two hundred years. It was locked inside a secure chest, but Ingrid unlocked it while searching her father's cupboards ("Flesh and Blood"). She placed it in the kitchen where Renfield, in a panic, slipped and broke the casing.

Effects of the box

  • The evil emanating from the box causes vampires to rot from the outside in.
  • The reference book listed other stages, stating that the dose of evil became progressively worse over time. Any vampires in contact with the box would suffer boils and swollen tongue, deafness, blindness and imminent death ("The Enemy Within").

The Blood Seed

The Magister Maleficorum was a box which contained something called the Blood Seed. The Blood Seed was a plant which grew when exposed to oxygen. In "The Darkest Hour" George opened the box, allowing the Blood Seed to flourish.


  1. Roughly translated Magister Maleficorum means 'Master of Crimes' in Latin. Maleficorum is the genitive masculine plural of maleficus.
