Silat ibn Isa
late 12th century
Silat ibn Isa was a vampiric inhabitant of Khwarazm who was dedicated to fighting the Mongols that had invaded it.
Silat has lived in the city of Bukhara in the Khwarazm Empire since the days of his Embrace, cultivating a strong network of spies and scholars within the city. A devout Muslim, he enjoyed the state of Bukhara as a central trading point and immersed himself in the intellectual pursuits the city offered.
When Genghis Khan laid siege to the city, Silat fell into Torpor and when he awakened, he found his city under Mongol rule. Embittered, he began a campaign to oust the Mongols and the vampires that had followed them from the city, believing them to be ploys for an unknown faction of Kindred originating in Asia.
