Demitri Maximoff is a character from Darkstalkers series, he makes his debut in the first Darkstalkers game as the main protagonist.

Profile

Head of the House of Maximoff and a Makai noble. More than a century ago, he challenged the King of the Makai, Belial, in battle and was defeated, resulting in his banishment to the human world. There, he quietly regained his powers before returning to the Makai. After the death of Belial, his daughter and successor to the Makai throne, Morrigan, became Demitri's target. However, upon sensing the presence of the resurrected lord of the House of Dohma, their battle was temporarily put on hold. Demitri now burns with a desire to put the upstart Jedah back in his place. While he acts as a proud and noble gentleman outside of battle, once the fighting starts his cruel demonic tendencies come to the fore. He also pays a great deal of care to his personal appearance, always carrying a can of hairspray tucked away inside his cape.

Story

Deep within the mountains of Romania lies a castle that appears only on a full moon. The castle, named after the owner of the land, was called Zeltzereich. This castle belonged to a Makai Vampire, Demitri Maximoff.

100 years ago, he had challenged Belial Aensland for power. He lost the battle and was exiled from Makai for his crimes against its ruler. Sunlight was something that was troublesome for the vampires of Makai, especially for Demitri. If he were to be directly exposed, his body would be destroyed from the inside and would disappear.

To avoid the sunlight, he used his supernatural abilites and created a field to cover his castle. He used this field to recover his strength. For 50 years, he stayed within his casket. As he slowly regained his strength, he would step out only once a full moon put a shield around his body for blood.

By this time, there were already people that would wander into the castle. They would somehow hear rumors of treasure's within the castle. They would bring crosses, stakes, garlic, holy water and silver bullets thinking they were safe and attack Demitri. To Demitri, humans were food as enjoyed their blood. To him, it was like drinking the best wine of Makai. Those who were bit by Demitri had turned into vampires that would become loyal servant to him. Currently, 40 people settle in Demitri's castle and care for him.

When Demitri recovered 80% of his original power, he was able to temporarily create an aura around him that would grant him the power to walk on a cloudy day. Demitri had conquered both night and day and had no weaknesses. After 100 years of humiliation for his loss, he had gained a lot. He acquired various knowledge. The Prince of Darkness steadily readied himself to take over the realm once again.

The presence of an alien life form on Earth was an unexpected event for Demitri. Demitri seized this opportunity to further gain strength and fought against Pyron and consumed the alien life form. He was confident that he was strong enough to challenge and defeat the ruler of Makai, Belial.

When he returned to Makai, he found out that Belial's daughter, Morrigan Aensland, had become heir to the Aensland family and the ruler of Makai. As Demitri prepared himself to challenge Morrigan, he and his castle were sucked into the realm of Majigen by Jedah Dohma. Believing that meeting Jedah was an important step, he went off to meet Jedah for help and a deal.
