Lianda was a Romani healer who operated from a small caravan in the nation of Wallachia during the mid 15th century. In the year 1459, Turkish warlord, Turac, brought the dying Wallachian prince, Vlad Dracul, to her carriage and told her to use her Romani magic to heal him. Like most Transylvanians, Lianda despised Turkish occupation and had no desire to see Dracula healed, only to become a puppet to Turac. What Turac never realized; however, was that Lianda was also a vampire. Guided by the commands of the ancient vampire, Varnae, Lianda drank the prince's blood until his human form died and he was reborn as a vampire. When Turac discovered Lianda's treachery, he impaled her with a silver-tipped spear.
The wound, though severe, did not pierce her heart, and Lianda was able to shape-shift into a bat and fly away. She sought out Lord Varnae, and implored him to use his power to heal her. Varnae felt as if Lianda's usefulness was complete, so instead of healing her, he used his power to finish her off.
