The Archbishop is a minor antagonist in Netflix's animated Castlevania series. He is the archbishop of Targoviste and the former superior of the Bishop.
This man began serving as Archbishop to Targoviste Cathedral in 1456. He is first mentioned by the Bishop during Lisa Tepes' execution in 1475, as preferring that life in Wallachia be kept simple and pure. For that reason, the Bishop acts as his envoy as prosecutor of accused witches on the country. The Bishop is also his caretaker and expresses concern at his health, fearing his death to draw near.
In 1476, little more than one year after Lisa's execution and Dracula's threat, the Archbishop is seen holding a grand public speech at Targoviste. He is shown to be a sickly, revolting elderly man, and he mocks "the Devil himself" for his failure to uphold the threat made one year prior, explaining it to be only a lie as these are the Devil's works. However, the Archbishop is quickly made to regret his words as the skies turn dark and the cathedral's glass windows shatter behind him, impaling him on a shard.
The Archbishop is last seen watching Dracula's visage emerge from the sky and listening to Dracula's sentence over Wallachia, before being consumed by the flames caused by the rising of Dracula's castle from the ground.
