Rasvan Belasco, Burgomaster

Human veteran, Burgomaster of Ravenloft.

Description:

Human veteran, Burgomaster of Ravenloft.
Born 917 BC, Old Vallaki, County of Ravenloft.

The Belasco family has controlled the burgmaster’s seat for decades, and become a wealthy and influential family of burghers. Originally influential within the teamster guilds, the establishment of the Vallaki Express and the need for more inter-domain travel lead them to branch out into shipping, import and export. The Belascos own much of the docks, and have deep ties with the Houses of the Vistani and the Red Vardo Traders, though they find rivalries with the Ludendorf-Kantora Railway Company (LKRC) and the syndicate of the Vine, of their near eternal rivals, the Martikovs.

Rasvan is cut from this cloth, but he himself has a more checkered history, having served in the Free Militia, and even fought his fair share personally. He has a very hands-on way of going about things, and an authoritarian streak that makes him unpopular in the Rathaus. However, his family’s influence and the fact he is elected for life has so far insulated him from too much blow-back, but his age has brought concerns that he has not made arrangements for his replacement. If the Martikovs were to get a hold of him, or even just illness, it could create quite a power vacuum.

Rumours
While the lycanthropic heritage of the Martikovs is well documented, there are some that say the Belascos have some strange heritage of their own. Their endless success in business and avarice lead some to point to devilsblood, though if there are any tieflings in their family, they are well hidden.
