Kriavi Vajda lived during the 17th century and was a member of the noble family line of Moldavia. He was also Grand Inquisitor of the Inquisition, a position that brought him great turmoil, particularly when he discovered that his own sister, Princess Asa, was a witch in league with a warlock named Igor Javutich. Vajda and his fellow inquisistors captured Asa and Igor and conducted a trial, charging them with crimes of witchcraft and vampirism. He ordered his sister to be branded with the devil's sigil and to have the Mask of Satan nailed to her face. Before her execution, Asa rebuked her brother's authority, placing a curse upon his entire family line.
