Strahd von Zarovich


Vampire ruler of all Barovia, often called the dread lord, dark lord, or the devil.

According to stories told by the Vistani, Strahd was once a noble prince, and their ancestors rescued him when he was still mortal.

According to the beliefs of Ismark and various Little Barovians, Strahd was cursed by Mother Night thousands of moons ago. This curse is also what makes the mists surround Barovia.

Strahd met the party along the Old Svalich Road between Little Barovia and the Tser Pool. He told them that Ireena Kolyana was his, and that they were interfering. He then toyed with them in brief combat before disappearing into the mists.
