Wallachians were accustomed to give it as a surname to any person who rendered himself conspicuous either by courage, cruel actions, or cunning. Told him to visit the library in Whitby. The final piece of a decades-old puzzle, a story, slowly taking shape.

Reader, be warned: Bram Stoker — was born in Dublin, Ireland.
