Human Druid / Wizard
Vlad was an aspiring arcane hierophant from the Dalelands who had traveled to Tethyamar with his comrade Brodin to visit the great Temple of the Unknown (later revealed to be a Temple of Ao). Shortly after arriving, both Vlad and Brodin were involved in an attempted drow bandit raid and met their ally Rayyn in the aftermath of the battle.
Vlad was enlisted by Bane to assist with investigations in Tethyamar up until the untimely disappearance (demise?) of both Vlad and Brodin when a portal opened briefly nearby at night, and long black tentacles drew in both comrades and vanished leaving Ravinder behind.
