Sypha calls Jason Isaacs’s character in season three of Castlevania a “township judge.” I suspect that’s from județ, which was an administrative office combining judge and major in Wallachia and Moldavia. Her line is that it was, “a very old term for the headman and landlord of a town, from the time before boyars and lords.” Boyar was an aristocratic rank in slavic countries. Dracula describes himself as one in chapter two: “Here I am noble; I am boyar; the common people know me, and I am master.”
