Baroness Katherina von Dernsbach was a vampire who served Neferata and then Vlad von Carstein in the World-that-Was. As a favoured servant of Vlad, she bore a signature ring as a token of his authority and a reminder that she was his eyes and ears in the city.[1]

History

She served first Queen Neferata but then became an agent of Vlad von Carstein who dispatched her the city of Mordheim following its devastation by the twin tailed comet that struck in IC 1999.[1]

There she orchestrated the search for warpstone in the ruins by the servants of Vlad, foiling the schemes of other factions as much as she could. She discovered several new varieties of warpstone that had intriguing properties for magic and necromancy in particular.[1]

Notes

In the video game she provides an introduction to the city and dispatches the player on a series of unique campaign missions to recover warpstone. She accompanies the player's warband on these adventures and is a powerful controllable asset for their duration.[1]

Quotes

It is by deed that loyalty to Count Vlad is made manifest. Your triumph proves your devotion to Drakenhof. When the legions of Sylvania march on the mortals, your service to the Master will not be forgotten.

~ Katherina.[1a]
