A Fragment of Time
Belgaren Zai Gul'il
A monk of an order long ago slain by Mordain Baelgrund. Belgaren met Mordain in single combat at the ransacking of his orders temple-monastery. Although he fought long and hard against the cruel conqueror, he was overcome by Baelgrund's sheer supernatural vigor and ferocity. At the monster's mercy, Belgaren was offered a choice. Either he join Mordain and become blood-bound to him as his servant, or he be humiliatedly be crushed upon his knees. Belgaren agreed to Mordains offer and was sired as his vampire thrall.
