Don Bartolo is a fictional vampire and a minor character featured in the HBO television series True Blood. Played by actor Ismael (East) Carlo, he was introduced in the fifth episode of season four, "Me and the Devil".
Santiago, also known as Don Santiago, was a vampire who existed during the early-to-mid 16th century. He operated out of Logroño, Spain and was the maker of Luis Patiño. Don Santiago and Luis Patiño posed as members of the Catholic Church, and fed off prisoners who had been captured during the Spanish Inquisition. They would routinely feed from prisoners, and even rape female captives. Don Santiago was present when Luis Patiño raped a witch named Antonia Gavilán de Logroño. When Antonia was being sentenced for her crime, she cast a spell, forcing all vampires to expose themselves to the daylight. Santiago fell victim to this spell and burst into flame. Luis Patiño however, managed to survive.
