Blamuro (ブラムロ, Buramuro, Blaumro in the English version of 2001 Anime series) was once a vampire hunter (バンパイアハンター, Banpaia Hantā), but was later killed off, in order to become the Guardian Ghost of Boris Tepes Dracula. He is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi in the Japanese anime.
500 years ago, the descendants of Vlad Tepes were still being hunted by other vampire hunters believing they were vampires. One of these hunters was Blamuro. However, during this time Asakura Hao came and taught the family how to become real "vampires" by using his Shamanic abilities.
However, the family succeeded in capturing Blamuro and kept torturing him until his senses were a complete loss and there was nothing left of his soul. It was then he was killed off and became the guardian ghost of Boris. 500 years later, the child Hao sought out the 22-year-old Boris Tepes Dracula, the now living descendant of his family and the inheritor of Blamuro, who instantly swore loyalty to Hao.
After Blamuro takes over Lyserg Diethel and threatens him and Asakura Yoh, Amidamaru is able to release Blamuro, which in turn makes him stop serving Boris. He eventually passes on to the afterlife.
