Born to a revenant family of feudal lords owing fealty to others, Grigore’s life has always been viewed through the bars of his perceived cage. He was groomed from a young age to be a leader of men, a general for their lord’s armies. Were it not for his love of his sister Luminita, he would know nothing of human empathy. Grigore yearned for freedom his entire life. He has expressed this in seeking out new experiences. In youth, this took the form of collecting folklore and fables from the townsfolk. In adulthood, it has seen him delve into the occult and macabre.
Having finally ascended to his intended position as a vampire, Grigore happily attended to his duties, seeing freedom at every turn. His being sent to Constantinople was his happiest day. Unfortunately, shortly after his arrival he discovered that though the bars looked different, he was still viewing from within a cage.
