A large Ussuran lad about the age of 16, with a lithe physique and woolly eyebrows.
Vlad is the traveling student/companion to Godfrey, aiding him in his research and learning along the way. Or at least, that's the way it's supposed to go. Vlad rarely speaks, but when he does, it's in Ussuran. He can read and write in Ussuran, and is decent at math, but his real skill as a student seems to be his ability to understand Godfrey's frantic hand-gesturing in a heartbeat. He seems somewhat shady for a student, but he's loyal and hardworking, and that counts for more than enough.
