Race Vampire, previously Human
Birthplace Innistrad

Runo Stromkirk is the progenitor of the Stromkirk line of vampires and high priest of the cult of an ancient god of the sea and storms on Innistrad.[1][2][3]


In life, Runo was a high priest who worshipped pre-Avacynian gods of the sea and storms. As a vampire he established his dominion at Drunau in Nephalia and supported master craftsmen and commissioning buildings, towers, and ships, while funding any vampire-friendly efforts by alchemists and magisters.

Runo has developed a significant interest in the coastal cults of Nephalia. He has worshipped (protected by his glamer) alongside cultists of the Kralmar and the Gitrog, and thrown sacrifices into the waves for unnamed entities. His spiritual craving wasn't satisfied until he settled down with the cult of Krothuss. Some humans revere him as a prophet.

With the onset of eternal night, Runo has decided the time is nigh to summon Krothuss, a legendary kraken said to be more powerful than the Kralmar itself.[4]
