Baron Vargas Vallakovich was the Burgomaster of Vallaki.
All Will be Well
The Baron came to believe that the only way to free Vallaki from Strahd was to be happy. Thus, he started launching a campaign of festivals in order to rally public spirit. The festivals did little more then make the townsfolk grimmer than ever and he has arrested people for spite directed towards his festivals. He ends all his speechs with the phrase "All will be well".
