Lanstrum is a brute. He can be silvery tongued in one instant and an intimidating force of nature the next. He has never hidden his nature as a vampire in the Cathwa Nation. He is known as a vampire with a thirstt for blood and war. However, Lanstrum is also a creature who has existed for centuries, so wisdom through experience does temper his base instincts when needed. Compassion is lost to this creature of darkness. But there are rumors of a soft side to this vampire, but no one is speaking up about it.
Since his mortal days, he has been involved in conflict, seeking war where it could be found. He has a thirst for conflict. He was not always this way. Lanstrum was raised on the streets of Cobul. Never knowing a mother or father, the young elf fended for himself, having to learn quickly to survive or be devoured. The people of the Cathwa had no time to coddle or show mercy--only the strong made their way among the sands. So it was that Lanstrum fell in with local gangs and underworld entities, doing whatever was required of him to survive. As he approached his 20th year of age, he began handling the money for local underworld entities. He was good with numbers, but he was a much better enforcer. He was trained by the brutes of the Underworld on how to not only survive, but win fights. None of the techniques they taught him had anything to do with honor, respect or fairness. None of that mattered when it came to victory and life.
Unfortunately, Lanstrum began to attract the attention of a small coven of vampires based in Cobul. They decided they wanted the "enforcer" for their own purposes. So in the dead of night, they stole him away from his hovel and converted him to a vampire against his will. Lanstrum was furious, but never showed it. When the opportunity presented itself, he slaughtered the ones who made him, one by one.
It was then that Lanstrum decided that he would take advantage of his supernatural condition and embrace it fully. He would not suffer the mind weakness of the elves due to his immortality, which pleased him greatly. Lanstrum decided that he did not like Cobul being run the way it was. He decided immediately that there was no reason he could not rule all of southern Cathwa Nation. He considered himself an apex predator and it was only right that he ruled the cattle beneath him. Lanstrum was sure that when it happened, his subjects would prosper under his rule. He is determined to find out by working towards becoming the Warlord of Cobul...to start.
Lanstrum has no magical abilities whatsoever, however he makes up for this with sheer skill and supernatural ability. Lanstrum is a skilled combatant with twin blade and fang. His ability to integrate his supernatural strength, speed and stamina into his fighting style has been very successful throughout the centuries. He has studied nearly every form of combat and seeks to continually improve his skill in this area.
