Lord Archain von Drekkemaus is a vampire mouse who first appeared in the Halloween 2012 event.
He owns a decorative gravestone in the Kürbisses-Nacht cemetery. This is not because he is dead, but rather because gravestones are very popular among the vampire mouse community and are used to show status.
A portrait of him before his turning, showing him as a mouse, is also available as a decoration to be placed in maps.
Archain von Drekkemaus, formerly a mouse, wears a black cape that has wings that wrap around the back of his neck. There is a ruffled collar bib around the front of his neck. His hair is short and black, curving down.
When he became a vampire, his color turned grey and he received long pointy ears. He also has worn-down fangs that appear to be harmless instead of sharp. He holds a key in his hand that does not have a named purpose yet. Since the Halloween 2021 event, he no longer holds a key.
He has been cursed by an unknown mouse or vampire, and he cannot leave his manor unless it is Halloween. It is unknown whether or not this was because he was cursed to become a vampire mouse and this is simply a side effect, or he was given two curses. The first assumption seems to be faulty, as vampire mice on survivor maps obviously roam freely. The only exceptions to this would be that either all vampire survivor maps take place in Drekkemaus's manor or vampire maps are non-canonical.
Drekkemaus has an official relationship with Buffy, and both of them have a child named Voldemouse. Although this child's backstory is unknown as of now, there may be an enigma that reveals information on the family in the near future.
Von Drekkemaus can spawn bats by clapping, and his other traits include being able to live without his heart in his body (although the heart must still remain intact). He also drinks fresh blood as a substitute for wine. Although he is not very talented in pumpkin carving, he feels as though it is with good intentions to engrave someone onto a pumpkin. Drekkemaus possesses talented calligraphy skills and uses a shaman quill to write with. Some believe that he wrote his love letter to Buffy in either the halls from the Halloween 2012 maps or in his library. Drekkemaus is also a pianist and a brewer as well as a writer. This is proven by the various pianos and brewing stations in his hallway and loft.

- He says "bonbon" during Skeleton map 2. This is a clue for the enigma that saying that word at the chest at the end of that map would unlock « Vampire »(287).
- In some statues of him, he is shown with red, glowing eyes, and/or an edged, pointed tip at the end of his tail, much like a dragon's.
- The key he holds may be the key to his mansion.
- It is unknown how he can appear in the Mice Village even when it isn't Halloween.
- Sometimes, the "von" in his name is capitalized, and his last name can be written as "Drekkemouse" (as it is in the Mice Village).
- In the Halloween 2021 event, to win the title « Nosferatu »(509), players were required to visit Von Drekkemaus on the Casino map wearing 12 costumes in the following order: Pumpkin, Skeleton, Puss in Boots, Milk carton, Dinosaur, Ghost, Easter Bunny, Indiana Mouse, Mermaid, Flower, Penguin and Vampire. He would use emotes and emoticons when players came to him wearing a correct or incorrect costume.
