Valkek is the "Father" of modern vampirism, the family structure which most vampire houses follow today are based off Valkeks original design. When Valkek was "undead" his family ravaged his homeland ruling over the living population as if they were cattle. He formed his family, and his nation, with only three vampires directly reborn by him. He is an excellent planner and a terrible opponent to have.
Always act in the families interest, and they will act in yours. Two fangs can drink deep of a land, twenty fangs can tap it dry. If your family lives on, so shall you, even in the face of the dawn.
Clergy and Temples
Temples to Valkek are usually home to a caretaker family of vampires, they offer any wayward intelligent undead comfort, often in exchange however for a service. The clergy can consist of many non-religious members if the family head is a follower and heads a church he will strive to keep all members among the faithful.
As a regal king with a constant shadow over his face, his eyes glow red from behind the darkness. He wields a longsword made of a reddish copper, with grooves that he uses to drink the blood of his victims.
