My name is Lisa.
I am from the Village of Lupu.
I want to be a doctor.
You bang on my front door
because you want to daub chicken blood on peasants.
Don't mistake me for a witch.
Everybody out there already does that.
I believe in science, but...
...I need to know more.
I've exhausted my other options,
and all the stories say the man who lives here
has secret knowledge.
I am Vlad Dracula Tepes,
and I do not get many visitors.
What have you to trade for my knowledge,
Lisa from Lupu?
Perhaps I could help you relearn some manners.
I've crossed the threshold of your home,
and you haven't offered me a drink or even to take my coat.
What if I took a drink from you?
Or have you loaded yourself with silver, crosses,
and garlic in superstitious fear?
I might have eaten some roasted garlic earlier.
Was that rude? I-it was all I had left.
I'm really not interested in superstition,
or being some muttering wise woman
cheating people with boiled nettles and entrails.
I want to heal people.
I want to learn.
Will you help me?
You are definitely different
to most humans I have met in recent times.
Maybe I can teach you to like people again,
or at least tolerate them,
or stop putting them on sticks.
I gave that up a long time ago.
Where is Lupu Village?
You don't travel much.
I can travel. This entire structure is a traveling machine.
But... you don't.
Maybe you should. The world is changing.
Travel, like people do. You might like it.
I've known you two minutes,
and you offer for me to walk the earth like an ordinary peasant
while I give you the knowledge of immortals,
the true science.
They won't be peasants anymore if you teach them.
They won't live such short,
scared lives if they have real medicine.
They won't be superstitious
if they learn how the world really works.
Why should I do that?
To make the world better.
Start with me, and I'll start with you.
I think I might like you.
瓦拉几亚 塔哥维斯特 1475年
So there were devil engines in her house, Bishop?
I saw them with my own eyes.
And glass in shapes you've never seen, thin as paper.
Strange weeds and tools.
Of all the witches I've rooted out,
none had such a collection.
And it had to come to this?
She called it all science, Mayor.
Lisa Tepes of Lupu was so far gone
that she just couldn't see that it was all given to her by Satan.
I've made some small study
of the chemical sciences myself, you know.
J-just a study, of course.
I-I'd never think to practice such things.
The Archbishop would prefer that life in Wallachia
be kept simple, Mayor.
Don't hurt them! They don't understand!
Who's she talking to?
I believe she's exhorting Satan not to take revenge on us,
which I suppose is almost commendable, for a witch.
Perhaps I'll say a prayer for her.
A small one.
I know it's not your fault, but...
if you can hear...
they don't know what they're doing.
Be better than them. Please!
Are you Mr. Tepes?
She talked about you.
Where is my wife?
The Bishop took her.
Witchcraft, he said.
They're burning her at the stake.
She was good to me, your wife.
A good doctor.
It's not right what happened.
Where are they holding her? The cathedral?
Oh, no, sir.
Sh-she'll be dead by now.
I couldn't be there.
I don't care what they say.
I won't take joy in that woman being killed by the Church.
I'm here remembering her instead.
She said to me,
if you would love me as a man, then live as a man.
Travel as a man.
She said you were traveling.
The way men do.
I do this last kindness in her name,
she who loved you humans and cared for your ills.
Take your family and leave Wallachia tonight.
Pack and go, and do not look back...
for no more do I travel as a man.
There. Quite a show.
I should minister to the Archbishop.
I fear he's not long for this world, to be honest.
Off to heaven with him, eh?
I suppose that's the ultimate goal for you priests,
serving God in His true house and all that.
It holds little appeal for me, to be honest.
