Lord Vladivus' history starts in Avalonia, where his mother, an Avalonian handmaiden fell for a handsome young vampire (young being operative, he was already several centuries old). Lord Vladivus was conceived, and born under a new moon in the depth of winter. His mother was banished, as his appearance was rather fearsome for the fragile Avalonian tight-wearers. He grew up in the wilds, and they eventually made their way to Nocturnus, where his mother perished in the Kelra Labyrinth. The Nocturnians took Lord Vladivus in, and after laying low, he now comes forth to stand as a loyal Nocturnian citizen.
