Lord Valdronya was said to be entombed in glass for nine-thousand years and was later made as part of the collection in Vincent Van Helsing's vampire museum. Shortly after Van Helsing introduces Valdronya to Mystery Inc., he is resurrected by the Fangenschanz theater troupe in their theater and escapes in bat form. Later on Mystery Inc. returns to Van Helsing's vampire museum to find out how Valdronya escaped, however Valdronya confronts Daphne Blake with the Vampire wedding jewelry which he stole from the vampire museum. Later on after Mystery Inc. tries to find information about the vampire attacks from Jesper Poubelle they flee in the Mystery Machine and Valdronya attacks them hoping to kidnap Daphne, however he lets go of Daphne's arm when he realizes he is about to hit a bridge.
However Valdronya does not give up and talks Bram and the rest of the Fangenschanz members into kidnapping Daphne and she is later taken to the swamp where they a temped to have a vampire wedding. After the Fangenschanz temps their chant and summons Valdronya, he knocks them out with his knock-out gas and uses it to put Daphne into a state of sleeping. However Shaggy Rogers tries to take a photo of Valdronya with Daphne and he begins chasing Shaggy. Valdronya is later revealed to be Vincent Van Helsing when the knock-out gas on Daphne wears out and his cape is torn of with a swamp boat fan, and later on staked to a tree by Fred Jones. It is also revealed that his power of flying was created by the flying shoes that he had earlier stolen from Tulie.
"Close your eyes and come to me.
When you wake then you shall be
Alive for all eternity
"Dark of the moon and beauty so bright.
Spirits arise and call to the night.
From earth to the stars and all that's between,
Beware and behold the vampire queen."
- - Lord Valdronya
- Given his attire and his personality, along with his accent and his true idenity being 'Van Helsing', he seems to be based on Count Dracula as he wants a vampiric bride, with Daphne playing the role of Mina and the vampire-based band being his vampire servants.
- His facial appearance is also very similar to the movie vampire Nosferatu, from the film of the same name.
