Name: Denden Adam "Vlad" Halliwell.

Race: Kinain.

General information:

Kinain from a long line of Changeling companions. His father was a Sidhe knight, accidentally slain in a duel with a particularly nasty Redcap before Vlad was born. Pale and tragic, mysterious and androgynous, Vlad is the personification of all things goth. Oddly, he speaks with a distinct California-surfer accent. App 4.

Vlad and Niran had a large wedding ceremony, attended by members of both sides of their family, at their home in Arlington. They had another, smaller ceremony in San Francisco, presided over by a justice of the peace — one of the last legal gay marriages in the state before the passage of the controversial Proposition 8.

More info when I figure out what more to share about Vlad.
