Hedeon has classic Slavic noble features, tall and strong-boned with dark hair that hangs straight to his shoulders and intense, deep-set eyes.
Hedeon does not speak of his mortal life or the one who embraced him. It is rumored that he fought with abandon during the first Anarch Revolt against the tyranny of the Methuselahs, and later joined the Sabbat though he cared little about the Sect beyond access to its resources and the opportunity to practice torture and Vicissitude. Through the centuries, he has experienced the heights of power and the depths of failure, spreading his influence throughout Poland, exchanging in political and physical blows with his neighbors and in countless petty skirmishes. Throughout it all Hedeon seized every opportunity to rise in power, and his control peaked in the latter half of the 20th century with the advent of communism. Hedeon's influence declined drastically when Polish communism fell, for he held many thralls among the movements’ elite. Forced to renew his contacts with Sabbat packs in the Balkan States in hope of regaining his former power, he found few willing to give him further assistance. He has since turned his attention to wringing what resources he can out of his remaining lands, and the villages and towns around his castle haven. The mortals that reside near his castle are populated to capacity with ghouls and the castle itself is guarded by szlatcha and other flesh-crafted traps and guardians.
This old world Sabbat member might as well be Autarkis with the lip service he gives to the Sabbat. He does keep in contact with his childer, eager for them to increase their own (and thus his) influence.
