    I certainly did not expect that. I mean, even if he was a vampire, I did not expect him to turn Belkar.

    Except the "Not long for this world" part of the prophecy is still a bit iffy. But I don't know, are vampires considered seperate entities from their former selves in D&D?

    Probably a magic item. He's a very high-level character, after all.

    Also, vampire lords are able to withstand sunlight (but they lose a lot of their abilities).

    So he really is a vampire...

    Also, back in 764:
    "And Tarquin keeps telling me that if I want more children so badly, I should just find the right person and get to it, but...I don't know."
    Have you ever considered adoption? Surely your political climate produces no shortage of orphans.
    "Yes, but I'm worried about not having that, you know, special bond."

    I see what you did there.

    Well, Malak being a vampire was reasonable.

    But I REFUSE to accept the "belkar will live through the prophecy" theorists were right.

    And he wants Durkon for himself. This answers a lot of things. On the first read though seeing him bite the head I though "Whoa, zombie ?"

    I am shocked by the sudden turn of events. So, there is more than meets the eye about Malack.

    It certainly explains some things.

    Now it makes more sense Tarquin considered Malak's children less worthy.

    I mean his lifelong friend Malak had to be quite angry before Tarquin understood that Malak's children were a big deal.

    Is Malak's alignment now switching to Evil?

    No need to be insulting to people with different predictions than you. Especially when they were right.
