Vladimir is one of the newer character added to League of Legends post release. Taking obvious queues from Dracula, Vladimir thirsts for the blood of his enemies. After learning to harness his hunger from a monk high in the mountains, he wields an impressive array of blood magic spells in battle. From draining the very of his enemies to spreading blood plagues, Vladimir's thirst for blood is never sated.
Unlike most heroes, Vladimir does not use mana to fuel his abilities. Instead, he uses his own life force to fuel his powers, draining his health to deal damage to his enemies.
Vladimir first realized his unnatural hunger for blood when he murdered two teens just to see their blood spray from their wounds. Having heard tales of a temple high up in the mountains where his kind would be welcomed, he left his home in search of such a place. In the mountains between Noxus and the Tempest Flats he found this temple, with sole monk inside. The eyes of this monk were crimson red, and it was him who taught Vladimir to manipulate the fluids of a person's very life. For his final lesson, all of the blood of his teacher was drawn from his body and fused with Vladimir, giving him the all the powers of the monk, and the monk's teacher, and so on. With nothing left to learn Vladimir turned to the League to hone his skills and fulfill his hunger for blood...for a time.
