Bretons from Brittany are Celt (they still speak a celtic language). And since I'm half-breton and that I always had more connection with this part of my heirloom (Brocéliande, the Finistère, etc...) I feel more breton than anything else (after French, of course).

My, my, interesting.

Is there any movement for autonomy or something among the Bretons nowadays?

There's also the fact that the franks were just the rulers while the majority remained Gauls, also celts.

This is a remnant of the old historiography. By that times, the Gauls have already intermingled with the Romans, and Franks were much more numerous too - to the point that the word "Frank" was used to denote everyone from the Western Europe, but future "French" specifically.

And, like with the forsaken, the one that gave you the name is a foreigner.

Except the myths (of vampires not Vlad) seem to have originated in Serbia and the word vampire is of Serbian origin as well.

Blood-sucking undead is not some exclusive kind of monster. We have upyrs and vurdalaks, for example.

Heh, in fact, Scourge's ghouls were localized as vurdalaks in Russian version.

In China we have creatures called Jiang Shi, essentially Zombies.

I descend from the heavens, as the Reborn Imperator of the Imperium Romanorum Occidentalis, looking upon the mortals and serfs below.

And 'Lo, do I see that the Roulette has not begun. Truly, Roma has Fallen to the Ostogathi, and Kir's Barbarians from Germania.
