Vladimir was born to a once noble family whose fall from grace came upon the dawning of the shining lord and the outlawing of devil worship.
His family once had high hopes for him as his conception was overseen with a dark ritual with the intentions of breeding a fiendish prince to take the reigns of the noble house as even before their tragic fall more recent events had turned over many bad years and they had been struggling financially.
Upon his houses fall from grace Vladimir swore off Asmodeus and all forms of reverence for evil deities along with turning on his former siblings and various many other family members. The act spared his head the bloc and allowed him further ability to scavenge the financial remains of his noble house at the price of the blood of his own kin.
Vladimir is a liar and over the course of the next 15 years of his life he restructured his assets and harbored the storm. All the while he masqueraded as a philanthropist accumulating followers and power. In time he began to hold secret meetings where he would discuss politics often critical of the government among like-minded individuals that over the years began to morph from mere anti-establishment political discussions to outright plans for revolution and with it the resurgence of the worship of Asmodeus and evil gods outlawed by the current establishment.
Over time his secret cult like cabal grew splintering off into terrorist cells dedicated to causing chaos among his competitors increasing his businesses profits and spreading outright violence against the government masquerading about as a fight for religious freedom.
Eventually he was implicated and his assets where seized and his ambitions as an aspiring noble where crushed a second time in his life. Furious at his trial he showed his true colours and promised to burn this insipid country to the ground with hell-fire as a new land under the banner of his dark lord would rise from the ashes like a great fiendish phoenix for the grievance of twice damning what is rightfully his.... birthright and a universally natural calling to hold great power and influence.
Words that would unfortunately fall on deaf ears none expecting the true hell he had promised them all....
