Strefan Maurer
Race Vampire, previously Human
Birthplace Stensia, Innistrad

Strefan Maurer is the progenitor of the minor Maurer vampiric bloodline from Innistrad. He rules a remote region in Stensia's outland valleys.[1]


As a human, millennia ago, Strefan admired no one more than his father. When his father met his end in an untimely accident, Strefan became obsessed with uncovering the secret to immortality. This obsession eventually led to a partnership with Edgar Markov, Olivia Voldaren, and the other humans who eventually became Innistrad's first vampires.[2]

Frustrated with his limited power and status as a "minor" vampire lord, Strefan treats his people with an incomparable cruelty. Sigarda attempted to intervene in the past, but Strefan was able to repel her forces. Angels have not set foot nor wing in his territory ever since. Strefan fears only one thing: his ancient familial estate. Abandoned when his father died, twisted and terrible things haunt its halls.[2]

Strefan killed his rival Irska Dusken and scattered the remainder of the Dusken bloodline.[1]

The original Maurer estate is abandonded by the family. Strefan left two twin relatives behind to guard it. This couln't prevent it from being invaded by a shadowy creature called the Hladvora, which lured Strefan back to the house and attacked him.[3] His fate after the battle is unclear.
