Isabella von Carstein (Barded Nightmare)As wicked as she is learned, no mortal can harm the Unliving Countess of Sylvania, for she reigns eternal!
As the daughter of the last Count von Drak, Isabella carries in her veins true nobility, laced with supreme arrogance and cruelty. Though her union with Vlad von Carstein was at first a marriage of convenience, love soon blossomed - a love that was to see Isabella ushered into the ranks of the Midnight Aristocracy, granting them both the power to realise their dreams. Isabella's newfound ability to raise the dead, coupled with her undying devotion to her husband, means the von Carsteins are more than a match for their enemies. With the Chalice of Bathori in hand, and Vlad at her side, there are few in the Old World who can stand against Isabella von Carstein!

- The Hunger
As the Vampires rip apart their victims they feast on the blood that spills forth – gaining in strength and lost stamina.
