The Troubled Lands
Akula is a vampire alchemist. He was once employed by The Bratva, but fled them after realising the extent of their brutality. Since then he has served as a lighthouse keeper at Port Fortune, while in the personal employ of the King of Thieves. After meeting the crew of the Waveblade, he was able to use Leviathan venom to liberate Silas's wings from their orichalcum prison, and restore the fallen Angel to his former glory.
He is an eccentric who is more than keen to experiment with new formulae, and does not shy away from attempting concoctions that are dangerous to the health of himself or his companions.
