Dracula (2020): Agatha Van Helsing [ENTJ]

Functional Order: Te-Ni-Se-Fi

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Thinking (Te) / Introverted Feeling (Fi)

Sister Agatha is highly straightforward and precise; when she finds Jonathan Harker’s account of his exploits at Castle Dracula incomplete and undecipherable, she asks him to take her through it verbally. She tests his insistence that he does not know the face of his loved one literally by bringing Mina into the room with him, in disguise. She arms her sisters with stakes and knowledge to defeat vampires, and scoffs at Dracula’s assertion that one of them will “invite him in” before the night is out. She often reasons aloud, and thinks tactically, with little interest in sentiment or emotions. Seeing no other way but to prevent Dracula from finding a means to survive at sea, Agatha orders all his boxes but one thrown overboard, using the last one as a trap. She then intends to blow up the ship, thereby destroying any possibility of his ability to regenerate from his injuries. She shows very little Fi, other than her strong internal value system, her straightforward beliefs (it takes factual reason to convince her God exists), and her determination to remain a nun, despite her lack of belief in divine forces at the time (it is a commitment she has made, and it is practical for the period).

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Intuition (Ni) / Extroverted Sensing (Se)

Throughout, Agatha is digging into a deeper psychological understanding of Dracula’s motives – something that baffles him, since he could care less what his reasons are for doing things. She makes many intuitive leaps in the midst of their conversation, from grasping at possible reasons why he respects crosses and holy relics to knowing when he is lying to her about his reasons for his actions. She deducts that he cannot help his bloodlust. She discerns at the conclusion that his true reason for his fears stems from his deep fear of death and oblivion. Agatha also is prone to taking physical risks, such as when she has such faith in her supposition that he cannot enter “unless uninvited,” she opens the gates and taunts him. She leaps into quick action to defend herself and blow up the ship.

Enneagram: 5w6 self-preservation

Agatha has “armed herself with knowledge.” In the basement, she has many books on vampires, as well as remnants scattered about of her experiments. She is logical and practical, but also more afraid than she lets Dracula believe. When he attacks the abbey, she takes Mina to safety rather than attempt to defend them in a tangible way, then trusts in holy wafers and her understanding of vampires to protect them. Agatha desires true understanding, but also detachment. She has chosen a life away from the outside world, cloistered within the walls of an abbey, where she need neither venture out into evil nor expect it to penetrate their holy defenses. Her 6 wing is suspicious, practical, and cautious, warning Mina not to trust even her loved ones, since they have been “compromised by evil.”
