Grasp of Orcus
Strahd von Zarovich
The vampire lord of Barovia
Strahd Von Zarovich is a vampire lord so powerful and feared that most believe him to be a myth. To the people of Barovia, however, he is all too real.
Strahd arrived in Barovia 300 years ago and has ruled the country ever since. The people there regard him with a mixture of worship and terror, and none would dare cross him. His power pervades every blade of grass.
Beyond this, next to nothing is yet known of him.
