A man is a miserable little pile of secrets.
This important fact was revealed by Dracula in 1792. Richter Belmont was caught unawares by this stunning revelation as they exchanged words before dueling. However, despite the surprise, Richter Belmont ultimately prevailed, in a sad day that witnessed the triumph of perverse whip-wielding manhood over philosophical insight into the human species.
Dracula got his revenge about five years down the road, when he gave Richter a REALLY embarrassing secret to keep.
