Strahd vs. The Gentlemen Bastards
Baron Vargas Vallakovich
Killed by Elyadra in Chapter 5 (poisoned).
Alignment: Lawful Evil
The burgomaster of Vallaki was a ruthless heel who prided himself on his good breeding and finely honed leadership skills. He staged repeated celebrations to foster happiness, and his “All will be well!” catchphrase had become a sad and tiresome punchline.
Baron Vallakovich was poisoned by Elyadra in Chapter 4. He succumbed to the poison, dying the next day. The Festival of the Blazing Sun was still held in his honor, but was a sad affair.
