Professor Abraham Van Helsing is the main protagonist of Dracula: Dead and Loving It.
He was portrayed by Mel Brooks who also produced and directed the film.
As with most characters in the film Van Helsing is an exaggeration of Bram Stoker's original character. Dr. Van Helsing goes out of his way to unnerve people, taking pleasure in the knowledge he is the only one cut out for his degree of work. Van Helsing is also very stubborn and insists on getting the last word in any sort of argument, a trait he claims most vampires instinctively have as well. When Count Dracula refuses to letting even a petty argument die Van Helsing becomes suspicious of the Count.
Skills and knowledge
Professor Van Helsing is an expert physician but his real skill is as an occult researcher and vampire hunter. He knows a variety of ways to repel a vampire and the method to kill one. Though there are simpler ways to kill a vampire Van Helsing always encourages the most over the top, complicated and gruesome method, partially to be one-hundred percent certain the vampire is dead and partially because he just enjoys seeing how far he can push people.
