Only trust people you love... so love no one.
Velkan was the illegitimate son of a Hungarian princess and a Moldavian prince who like the infamous Vlad Dracul was a member of the Order of the Dragon. Velkan grew up at his father’s side, fighting invaders.
His brothers were captured and enslaved by their enemies when he was thirteen and it was rumored that Velkan (who was believed to be a sorcerer) had been taken too, but rather than be turned into a slave, he sold his soul to the devil for freedom. He vowed that no one would ever enslave or tame him. At age 15, he fought and freed his one brother who still lived.
At 26, he captured a band of invaders who had attacked and ransacked a group of nuns on their way to Trigoviste. There in their midst, he found a novice they had captured who they had intended to rape and kill. She was from Wallachia and was none other than the daughter of Vlad Dracul, one of his father’s most hated enemies and rivals.
Before Velkan could hand her over to his father, he fell in love with her and the two were married in secret. They vowed their love would last forever. Unfortunately, forever takes on a whole new meaning in the Dark-Hunter world.
Through an act of betrayal, he and his wife, Esperetta are now bound together as Dark-Hunters, in more ways than one and they absolutely hate each other.
