Transylvanians are a race of aliens in Rocky Horror from the planet Transexual, in the galaxy of Transylvania. Little is known for sure about the race aside from them being typically more flamboyant than humans.
Transylvanians are virtually indistinguishable from humans, the major difference being that Transylvanians have a much more relaxed view on gender roles and sexual taboos than most earth civilizations. Colorful, grandiose and skimpy clothing are extremely common, as is cross-dressing and casual sex with multiple partners. In the case of Magenta and Riff Raff, even incestuous relationships are known to occur. But even though the race is extremely hedonistic, Dr. Frank N Furter's lifestyle was considered "too extreme."
The homeworld of the Transylvanians is described as a beautiful yet ominous place of lust and mystery. Erotomania, promescuity, and vanity are apparently not only accepted on Planet Transexual, but celebrated.
The Transylvanians appear in the original Rocky Horror Picture Show and play a major role in the unproduced screenplays for Rocky Horror Show Its Heels and Revenge of the Old Queen. In Revenge, their society and culture is explored in more detail.
In Revenge, it was revealed Frank N Furter was a member of the Transexual Royal Family, and his mother was the Queen of the planet. Also according to the unproduced script, royal guards and officers of the Queen are known to wear BDSM gear in public.
