Carmilla is a major villainess in Netflix's cartoon adaptation of Castlevania, loosely based off of the character of the same name from the video games. She and Isaac serve as the secondary villains of the second seasons, before becoming the main villains from the third season onwards, albeit in opposed factions. Carmilla is a scheming and manipulative, yet craven and over abitious, Vampire Noble aiming to usurp control over the vampires from Count Dracula and make vampires the new dominant species.

She is voiced by Jaime Murray.

Personality

Contrasting her devotion to Dracula in the games, she is smug, scheming, manipulative, power-hungry, misandrists, misanthropic, lascivious and cowardly.

She only fights with all odds in her favour, fears the Belmonts, overestimates her planning skills, and is too ambitious for her own good. Yet, she is genuinely close to her "sisters".

She only sees humans as food or pets, and wants vampires to rule the Earth. She covets Dracula's throne, as she deems him unfit to rule. She is hinted to have expected a worthy ruler, and to disdain the broken man she saw.

History

Background

Carmilla's past is only revealed through her own words.

She sought the knowledge of her sire and became one of his brides, until he reduced her to an abused sex slave, prompting her to kill him and making her hate all men.

Role in the Second Season

Carmilla arrives late in Dracula’s war council, announcing that the demon forces were defeated in the city of Gresit, and openly defies Dracula by asking why he did not turn his wife Lisa to a vampire, which would have kept her away from the fanatical church officials who burned her at the stake, thoroughly unable to fathom that he could love her genuinely, instead of using her as a sex slave.

Carmilla makes her entrance.

The Vampire Nobles keep infighting, furious that Dracula trusts two human Devil Forgemasters, Isaac and Hector more than them, and worried that his goal of total genocide of the human race would leave them unable to feed and doomed to extinction in turn.

Upon learning that Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades and Dracula's son Alucard have teamed up to destroy Dracula, Carmilla freaks out, knowing how powerful they are, and insists on taking them out immediately, but the others do not listen.

Dracula orders Carmilla to work with Hector and Isaac, and she takes profit of it to talk the undecisive Hector into attacking the Belmont Estate and to attack the city of Braila which is not yet on Dracula’s list, with the monsters he forged, planting doubt in his mind about Dracula’s sanity.

As the vampires are slaughtering everyone in Braila, Carmilla makes her move. She raises the fanatical Bishop as an undead, to make him bless the water of the Danube River, and uses her army of vampires to ambush Dracula’s forces and make them fall into the now holy water, destroying them. Right after, she drags Hector with her and launches her troops to attack the Castlevania.

Right as Dracula is about to destroy Carmilla and her forces by himself, Sypha casts a spell to teleport the Castlevania, displacing the blessed water, which destroys all of Carmilla’s armies, with herself and Hector only barely escaping.

Finally, after Dracula is destroyed by the heroes, Hector has had enough of Carmilla and tries to get away, calling her twisted, but she viciously beats him to a pulp and chains him, declaring that he is now her slave and forcing him to forge an army of demons to restore her forces.

Role in the Third Season

From left to right: Lenore, Morana, Striga and Carmilla

Carmilla returns to Austria, where she rules the province of Styria (where the novel Carmilla takes place) from a castle as big and wondrous as the Castlevania itself, though not a magical one. There, she leads once more her Council of Sisters and prepares to take profit of the chaos spread by Dracula’s rampage in a second bid for power.

There is the red-headed diplomat Lenore, calculating, manipulative and patient, who can turn into a swarm of bats and is skilled in playing on the letter of bargains. Then the dark-skinned economist Morana, a cruel and vicious torturer yet a highly efficient administrator. Finally, the raven-haired military leader Striga, a highly skilled and analytic strategist who forms a formidable team with her lover Morana.

Carmilla decides to seize Braila, which has yet to recover from Dracula’s attack, and to make it her enclaved food reserve, like a farm of sort. Her sisters point out the huge logistic difficulties in maintaining such a project, and that Hector will never obey after having been mistreated. So she orders Lenore to gain his trust and convince him to build them an army.

Lenore sets out to gain Hector’s trust, providing him with luxury, books, and false niceness, while instilling doubt in his beliefs and loyalties. She eventually tricks him into forging an army, before putting a magic ring on his finger to bind him and his creations to the Council’s will. He is now reduced to a pampered sex-slave, much to Lenore’s sisters’ astonishment.

Trivia

  • Carmilla’s personality like any other women is very head strong on her objectives but also does not care about Dracula smoothly
  • Carmilla mentions the Midwestern region Chicago area were Vampires have been in hiding for secrecy under her rule knowing that it is her home and willing to protect it necessary.
