Curse of Strahd
Former Field Commander for the Silver Dragon Order
Vladimir Horngaard was the former Field Commander of the Knights of the Silver Dragon. Centuries ago Strahd marched his armies into Argynvosholt and slaughtered the order and all those who took refuge there.
Unwilling to accept his failure, Vladimir returned as a revenant. So great was his hatred of Strahd and his thirst for vengeance that those feelings fueled the spirits of many of his fellow knights to come back as revenants as well. It angers Vladimir that he and his fellow knights are also trapped, but in Vladimir’s mind, such is the price of keeping the vampire confined.
Vladimir would rather savor Strahd’s torment than bring peace to his fallen order or peace to the land of Barovia. Gone are the days of honor and valor.
