Constantin Vladimirescu is the oldest known vampire to walk the planet. As a descendant of one of the original vampires, Vladimir, Constantin was destined to lead his people to greatness. His surname Vladimirescu translates to “son of vladimir” in the native language of the humans that live in the territory he and his horde control. Vladimir condemned himself to Vampyrism with foul. Tempted by the power and eternal life promised to him by Vladimir, Constantin also took part in the dark ritual and became Vampire. The consequences of his actions were revolting to him almost immediately, his body turned deathly pale and his form contorted in agony until his bones grew in length and size and his muscles became grotesque and powerful. He thirsted for the blood of the living as well, all of these things drove him mad and he fled Vladimir’s castle, never to be seen again for over one hundred years.
During that time many more vampires were created and there was an intense power struggle over the land amongst the vampires. At the height of this vampire civil war Constantin reemerged from the shadows of mystery, his body was completely altered to look more human.
In the ruined crypts of ancient civilizations he discovered a tome that allowed him to create powerful runes that could be branded onto an individual or onto an object. He called this book the “Carte de Mort”, or the tome of Vampyrism. One day, Constantin saved the life of the dragon by transferring his own life force partially into the dragon.
With all of this unbelievable power at his fingertips, Vladimir quickly swept across the region like a tide of shadow, corrupting the very land that he walked upon. Almost every vampire who saw him immediately bowed to his reign, knowing that by following him they would be guaranteed amazing power. Having united all of the vampires under one rule, it was pathetically easy to quash the human rebellions that took place over the next year to thwart Constantin’s rule. Remaining survivors were branded with runes that would cause them to die immediately after leaving the corrupted lands. It was under this new era that many humans committed to the rituals of Vampyrism to become vampires and serve Constantin for all time.
