Vladimir was lifemate to Sarantha Dubrinsky. They were the original mated pair, prince and lifemate of the Carpathian people. His best friend, Roman Daratrazanoff, was his second, though Vlad did not confide in him about Draven's illness. Vlad and Sarantha died during the Turkish invasion in 1400. He and his lifemate currently reside in the Land of Mist.
