The Resident Evil Village art director has spoken about the inspiration for the sexy vampire lady, Lady Dimirescu, in a new interview with IGN.
Resident Evil Village is one of the most anticipated titles of 2021 and it’s partly thanks to its tall vampire antagonist, Lady Dimitrescu. The vampire has gained a notable following online in the wake of the reveal that he towers over the player, and not just because of his high heels. The character is apparently around 9’6 “, making her a promising NBA draft star if she abandons the entire blood-sucking trait.
The character also appeared in the recent Resident Evil Village Exclusive demo for PlayStation 5. The demo ends with Lady Dimitrescu attacking the player with her sharp claws, giving him another extreme advantage over the player. The character generated a lot of attention on social media, with people wanting to be trampled on by her or other notably sexual things. The thirst of this character has been one of the engines of the game in recent weeks.

In an interview with IGN, Resident Evil Village Art director Tomonori Takano spoke about the titanic Lady Dimitrescu. The character came about as a result of wanting to find new ways to scare gamers, as Capcom felt that zombies would no longer be as effective. At first, Capcom made the decision to focus on new kinds of “evil” similar to the approach of 7. “In the early stages of planning, we decided to stick with [a] castle and vampire motifs “, Takano says. “However, we didn’t want to be limited by how vampires have been depicted in various forms of popular entertainment.“
Capcom was inspired by people from different time periods and locations, such as Morticia Addams from The Addams Family as well as the 16th century Hungarian noblewoman and serial killer Elizabeth Báthory. Takano also noted that the team was quite surprised by the incredibly intense reaction to the now iconic vampire. “I don’t think anyone [on the team] could have predicted how wonderfully fans have reacted to Lady Dimitrescu“says Takano.”Personally, I was particularly impressed by comments like, ‘I want her to chase me. “
Resident Evil Village It will be released in just a few months, with another demo sometime prior to launch on multiple platforms. Whether or not Lady Dimitrescu is a minor antagonist in the game remains to be seen, but it would be a shame if she only had a small amount of screen time, given the incredible fervor surrounding the character. Maybe Capcom will give players some DLC to build on the character, similar to Resident Evil 7 expansions.
