None of this happened in the quest.
If I were to write River of Blood, I would have liked to include a really big plot twist, one that would've questioned the entirety of the Myreque's existence...
What if... Veliaf Hurtz was a Vampyre all along...?
Sounds crazy, doesn't it? But I have a backstory to support this as a potential idea. Veliaf Hurtz (sounds Vampyric in itself, right?) was present at the Fall of Hallowvale during the God Wars. Unlike other Vampyres, he was sympathetic towards humans, and hoped that both his race and theirs could live in peace in Hallowvale. Veliaf, one of Lord Draken's most trusted allies, was ordered to do a very important task:
Execute King Ascertes Hallow. With much pain, he fulfilled his Lord's request. After the incident, full of guilt, he questioned his loyalty, left Darkmeyer and went into hiding.
In the 5th Age, Veliaf emerged again, however, in a human disguise (powerful Vampyres can do this, Vanstorm, Vanescula and Alexei Jovaki being the examples) taking the form of Ascertes Hallow, so as to hide his true form and to remember the King he killed. He wanted to destroy House Drakan, and liberate the people of Morytainia so that both races could live in peace with each other side by side. He founded The Myreque with Safalaan Hallow, Queen Efaritay's son. The Silver Sickle symbol of the Myreque was adopted from Veliaf's old Vampyric Sigil. Whether Safalaan knew of Veliaf's true identity, as the killer of his father, or not, we may never know, but it would make sense as both characters would've formed a balance to their fictional leader, "Calsidiu".
If this were to be true, it would make Veliaf the only Saradominist vampyre in existence, standing alone against the tyranny of his own kind. Janos Morgan of Asgarnia
