Count Volrin Dashar
Personality: Volrin is as charming as he is handsome. He is a pure gentleman to those around him, even his enemies. Behind this charade a sinister creature resides. Cruel and deceitful in all respects, Volrin cares nothing for the living. Mortals are simply pawns waiting to be used. Nothing pleases him more than tearing away any happiness the mortals may have.
History: A once proud general of the former vampire army. Volrin was born with a natural talent in swordplay. At the age of fourteen he pledged his allegiance to Dimitrious Pendral Tempes. With his near unmatched skills with the blade, he easily grew in favor of the Vampire Lord and was eventually bestowed the honor of the Dark Gift when he reached the age of twenty-eight.
When the tides of war came to the world of Ishtar, Volrin was given the task of being general over the first unit to enter the Demon Wars. The desert city, Shanar, was the vampires’ first targets. The humans were easily defeated, however, before their victory was complete, the sun rose. Having slain the king of Shanar, Volrin was greeted by the warm light of Calamia from within the castle walls. Watching his comrades burn within the sunlight, he managed to escape within the darkness of a cellar. When night returned, Volrin left the safety of the cellar to find all of his comrades gone—burnt all to ashes by the world’s horrendous sun. Those others who had survived were caught by the remaining humans and burned at the stake. Severely burned and weakened, Volrin fled from the city, never to see it again.
Since that fateful day, Volrin has undergone a radical change. Wanting to make the human scum and their allies suffer as he and his comrades had, he broke his oaths to the Vampire Lord. Now he roams the world of Calamia converting any and all people he so chooses. He has earned the title of the Dark Rogue by his brethren—being known to have converted entire villages and even small cities. For these atrocities, he is despised by all of his brethren and hunted by many slayers. Amongst the most well known of slayers hunting him is the infamous Nathan Mandra.
