Character Description and History

Vladamir has long black hair that is neatly kept. Vladimir is an imposeing warrior because of his height and prowess with the Two-handed sword.  He wears all black clothing including a large cloak that covers his head completely as well as a specially designed set of black boots that have iron in the sole.

Vladamir Blackblade was born a full blooded minotour somewhere in the Desertsmouth Mountains in Blackblade Keep, the home of his father and mother. Like his father Vladamir is a short tempered warrior and has a tendency to answer problems with his sword. 

Little is known about the Blackblade clan except that Vladamir's father was a mercenary for Theremen Ulath the Lord of Highmoon for a few years and earned the honorary title of Sir Blackblade for his service to the Lord of the Highmoon. 

Vladamir was married to an elf named Morwen when he was 18, he loved Morwen and she saw beyond his beastly appearance and after a few short months they were married , Unfortunately for Vladamir his Happiness was not to last his whole life. 

One day while Vladamir was out hunting for the feast his father was having for Vladamir and Morwen's 33rd anniversary when A mage named Zencer Tem attacked the keep trying to gain a new Laboratory for himself as well as a few slaves. 

By the time Vladamir returned he was just in time to see his wife struck by a fireball that killed her and injured his father, when Vladamir saw this a rage took him and he rushed at the mage and with one slice of his Two-handed sword severed the mage's arm from his body. 

As the mage screamed in pain Vladamir ran to his wife only to hear her last breath as she laid dying in his arms Vladamir turned to finish the job he had started on the mage but he was to late the mage had already used some sort of magic to teleport him away from the enraged minotour but as he left he said in a mysterious tone "I'll be waiting." 

The minotour picked his wife's shell of a body and began to walk, after about a few weeks Vladamir had awakened from his shock and realized he was at the gates of Highmoon and had walked to the center of the town and had more than 2 dozen guards with swords and bows drawn and held directly at him, he spoke in a tone rare for him and said "help my wife please and fell to the ground from exhaustion and grief. When he awoke he was in the temple of Oghma in Highmoon and was being cared for by a priest.

The priest told him to stay there as he got up to get help from the other brothers but Vladamir immediately rose from the makeshift bed and went to go find the high priest of the temple, he found him without my fight from the other priests (because of there fear of the minotour) as Vladamir opened the door to the priests chamber he heard the elderly priest say "welcome please calm your self and I will explain all."

After about an hour the priest had told Vladamir that he had been asleep for a week and that his wife was beyond healing of any kind and was now buried in the graves in the court, Vladamir thanked him and went out to Morwen's grave and kneeled down and swore he would avenge he death, even if it cost him his own.

Vladamir found that most of the towns people were afraid of him and would not even give him directions to the nearest inn, but after a few minuets he found The Oak and Spear Inn and found two adventures named Leodin Umanyar and Scott Sharp that were willing to help him and together they joined company and have been trying to make a name for themselves in the Highmoon area.
