Desmond Van Serif was born in the late 1700s to a noble family in Romania. While he idolized the fair and noble ruler his father was, he himself was a wicked child, who only kept up appearances for his father and the kingdom's sake.

During his teenage years, he left home to seek a remedy for his father's declining health. Upon returning, he found the his father's head on a pike and the rest of his family slaughtered and cast aside. Soon after, he was discovered and beaten nearly to death. Staring up at his assailants, he realized the culprits were the very people his father had sworn to protect.

With his father's death went the mask he'd been deceiving himself and the world with all those years. If kindly protecting people meant a knife in the back, he'd rather crush them under his boot and reign them in. His rage and desperation to live activated his powers.

He meant to pay them back, cruelty with cruelty. He massacred the entire settlement indiscriminately, drawing the very life force out of their bodies.
With this power, he deemed himself an existence close to the gods and set out to encompass the world with a power befitting a true king, above all.

Over the years, he's toyed around with various world powers, all the while patiently plotted and executed his plans, building a foothold in the underworld and lives a modern day kingpin at present. He's held power in various countries, either directly or by proxy. There have been few to find his true identity and fewer who lived to tell about it.
