Dean Valentin is a vampire warlock teacher at the Witherbloom College of Strixhaven University on Arcavios.


Dean Valentin of Witherbloom is an ancient and sensitive vampire who drinks the blood of living creatures throughout the bayou. Valentin is a kind of sangromancer, he receives visions from the blood he consumes and can use these visions to learn dark truths about a creature or place.

Valentin has no qualms about exploiting the creatures of the bayou for personal gain. His classes often focus on dissection and decay. He and Dean Lisette often clash over his cavalier treatment of animals, but that hasn't stopped her from using his discoveries for her own research.[1]
