Canon[edit | edit source]
Dr. Rudolph Van Richten was a Vampire hunter whose family was lost due to them. He appears in many Ravenloft modules and has written several books about its inhabitants. In the most recent Ravenloft module Curse of Strahd, he traveled to Barovia to kill Strahd disguised as the Half-Elf bard Rictavio (Below). He used Khazan's tower as a hideout.
He is based on Professor Abraham van Helsing from the novel Dracula.
