Count Radu

Prins of Bistritz (Tzimisce)


Since the days of ancient Dacia, Radu’s family has faithfully served the Tzimisce clan. In the year 1110, he clawed his way out of his mother’s womb as a revenant. Through insight and talent, he continued the effort.

After gaining the favor of a feudal lord, Radu was chosen as an ambassador to the West. His master believed the brilliant young diplomat would efficiently supply him with information.

When the revenant learned that the Ventrue wanted to establish seven domains in Transylvania and a coterie of Cainites to rule it, his master gave him the Embrace so that he could infiltrate the council. Radu skillfully played potential princes gainst each other, ensuring himself a position among the rulers of the Council of Ashes.

Regularly conversing with the rulers of the other six domains, he quickly gained a reputation for diplomacy. Through Radu, several Tzimisce kneri were able to maintain diplomatic relations with the rest of Europe. Radu’s authority is now recognized by both the kwri and uoivodes of his clan and the Cainites of Transylvania.

Haven: A castle on the outskirts of Bistritz.

Influence: Radu is gathering counselors to advise him on how to relate to the other clans. His position in Bistritz is very secure through them. He is one of the few Tzimisce who can converse freely with the Western Ventrue, and he commands enough local influence to defend his lands against rival voivodes.
