Name: Markus von Carstein
Homeland: The Empire (Altdorf, Reikland)
Appearance: When Markus was changed, he was only 18 years of age. He stands at 6’ tall exactly, and has thick, light brown hair that sweeps down over his left eye. A slight scar mars his right cheek.
When he takes on the aspect that allows him to fly, Markus’ features become batlike. He becomes a lot more muscular, and from his back grow two huge, monstrous wings (akin to those of the vargheists).
Personality: Markus is not afraid of speaking his mind, and can often be irritating to others. However, when he is fighting he has a deadly, single-minded ruthlessness that replaces his ‘lighthearted’ manner.
He doesn’t mind getting on the nerves of those he works with, but will always stop short of it coming to blows if possible. He can also change his mind at the drop of a hat, and can be quite contrary at times.
Background and History: Markus was born into a merchanting family Altdorf, the eldest son of Wolfgang von Heimlich. However, he always preferred swordplay over the merchanting lessons his father tried to subject him to. Eventually, Wolfgang grew fed up of this cavalier attitude to his inheritance, and gave him a choice - apply himself to the studies that would enable him to run the business when the time came or be disinherited.
Angry at this pronouncement, Markus stole a large amount of money from his father and left Altdorf for good, travelling the length and breadth of the Empire, increasing his swordsmanship and general combat skills all the while. He found himself in Sylvania on the last leg of his journey, after which he planned to return back to Altdorf and beg his father for forgiveness. However, in a small village along the road to Drakenhof, Markus came upon a stranger, who stood apart from the rest of the travellers.
When approached, the stranger became violent and despite his best attempts, Markus was hopelessly outmatched. But it was something in the young man that caught the creatures attention. To the bitter end, he was stubborn, refusing to be beaten and trying to stand his own. He was turned, and then feasted in an orgy of blood.
Nights later, Markus found his sire and killed him in a fit of rage before three words could be said between them.
Since then, Markus has been around the Empire many a time, killing as he goes. He has ranged further afield now, entering the noble lands of Bretonnia only to find they were nothing of the sort. He heard rumours of a Mordred, and there were rumours, rumours that made Markus’ mouth start salivating and he began his search to find him.
