Morokei is a powerful Lahmian second generation necromancer Vampire of the Nechrarch Bloodline. Morokei is the progeny of W`soran of whome turned him while they were both members of the Queen`s Priests inside the Kingdom of Lahmia.
Morokei was born in Lahmia during the rise of the Lahmian Vampire regime of which made him a member of the Queen`s priests of which were like the Magi warriors that were trained in the capital and used for war. Turned at the age of 42 by the leader of the bloodine in W'soran this made him into a very powerful third generation Vampire and this power combined by his inherint Magi powers made him a powerful Vampire. Morokei for a long time attempted to live a morally correct life, and it would be during this time that he would become the maker of both Vokun, and Vlad Dracula of whome he attempted with both to make them just as good a Vampire as he wanted to be. This would come to an end when Vlad would become corupted by his Maker in W`Soran and this would cause a collapse in him as he had been very close with Vlad. Following this event Morokei has ignored his maker in W`Soran but this doesn`t matter to him since he got exactly what he wanted as his progeny in Morokei begin to fall deeper into madness every day he hid from the world. This madness would take the form of him doing more and more henious actions in order to make his Maker notice him. This includes some of the most bizarre human experiments that go on in all of humanity. He is most well known for having spent the better part of the last hundred years underground. He has been experimenting on the living people that he is sent by his minions, and has lost all traces of humanity.

It was an entirely different world, and it took me a long time to get used to the fact that I couldn't just openly expect the people to follow me. The lands of Greece were pleasant enough, but I really just wanted to see Vashenesh smile again, and I was willing to try anything in order to make that happen.
With her forces managing to reach the small port of Hashin they captured the fleet present there and coralled the survivors northward towards Greece. When the group landed in Greece they numbered around 2,500 and in this way they were a rather powerful group. In Greece the vampires would at first attempt to devise a plan where in they could raise an army and take back Lahmia of which Angelica was noticeably silent on this plan. As Abhorash planned to retake Lahmia news came into the greek plains that the Empire of Nehekhara had sacked the capital of Lahmia and was garrisoning the entirety of the kingdom. With this news the vampires followed the lead of their queen when they accepted that the Kingdom of Lahmia was lost to them for now. While the Vampire Court of Lahmia was staying in Greece planning their next moves it would be the anger that many felt over thier defeat in Lahmia and being forced to live in a foreign land that would lead to much of the court including Angelica Neferata to start losing themselves in the blood lust they felt. As this violence escalated and Godrick and the other sensible Vampires of the Lahmia court saw no other options it would be Godrick that left the court in disgust for their behavior and traveled northward where he stayed for some time in Denmark. Anai Heretee would during the time of the Vampire Court staying in Greece would fall in love with the young Greek Prince Fadil Heretee of whom unwilling to move on without him would turn him into a vampire but put the blame on one of her pregeny of whom she then betrayed and killed playing herself as the savior of Fadil."We spent a long time in Greece, and during this time I drifted farther away from the morality that I had once known as I accepted the words of Hercuso that we were now gods. He made me believe that human lives were completely useless and were ours to do with what we wanted. I didn't realize that every life I took in the brutal manner I did drover my love farther away from me. I didn't realize that he was disapointed in me or I would have stopped immediatly."
The vampires spent nearly 45 years in the Greek mainland where they went from city state to city state menipulating them into financing, and supplying the vampires with huge wealth. After 45 years they moved northward where they moved through Estalia, and then settled in the Dol Amroth mountain of Dania for many decades. In Dania they waged conflict with the mountain goblins, and acumulated more wealth through raiding the rich Dol Amroth lands.

| The Founding of Weerhousen|
We are the true gods of this world. We need to show the world what the gods of this world are capable of. Today we stop. Today we take ourselves a new home.
With their new home chosen the Lahmians begin to look at expanding outside their own fortress of Lahmia City where they had made their home base and out into the regions around the city. This expansion was ordered by Queen Neferata of whome while being the figure head of the expansion was delegating the tasks of the actual operation to her Dukes of which Abhorash, and Ushoran would take the lead in this way. The two devised a plan where in Ushoran would use diplomacy and skilled civil management in order to annex different areas that were in the area, and while this was going on Abhorash was preparing the military of the Lahmians in order to militarily defeat the humans if they resisted. In the area there were only two major forces of resistence in the form of the Dutchy of Krieger, and the Confederacy of Gregior of which the Dutchy of Krieger was rumored to be quite powerful and led by an effective leader in House Krieger. While Ushoran moved towards the Confederacy of Gregior he sent Vashenesh and Hercuso to the Dutchy of Krieger where he hoped they could get them to submit easily and avoid any bloodshed. He would also send Fadil Heratee to the realm of Ravensburg where he would be ordered to meet with the leadership of that region in House Constein.
Confederacy of Gregior
Main Article : House Gregior
The Confederacy of Gregior was built around its powerful House Gregior of whome controlled a large tract of a region east of Lahmian City, and they also had a vassal Kingdom in the city state of Crailsheim which provided them with economic, and manpower to fuel their growing realm. When Ushoran arrived in the Kingdom he was quick to buy off sell swords, and other people with swaying loyalty and from these people he learned of whom the power brokers were in the realm of which every person seemed to direct him towards House Gregior and its charismatic heir Breven Gregior. Ushoran was very impressed when he met Breven and he realized very quickly that he could save thousands of lives if he were to convince Breven to simply take his people and join with the growing Kingdom of Weerhousen. Ushoran used the only tool he had at his disposal after his bribary was rejected when he threatened to kill the entirety of House Gregior if he was not listened to. Breven called his bluff and Ushoran reluctantly heeded the words of W'Soran who told him he would make Breven understand that they meant business when they were discussing matter. W'Soran would absolutely annihilate nearly half of House Gregior after he and several of his Nechrarch Vampires used Magi to warp in demons to attack and kill members of House Gregior. Following this event the two would meet again and Breven realized what he was dealing with and he allowed the annexation of the Confederacy into the Kingdom of Weerhousen.
Ravensburg was the area that Fadil Heretee was sent to in order to pacify and bring the city state of Ravensburg into the fold. He discovered upon arriving in the region that it was very poor, but its most pressing issue was dealing with the constant raids and invasions from the Trolloc dominated forests to the south. Fadil spent nearly two months building up support amongst the populated southern towns, and villages and his growing army prepared itself to invade the Trollocs. The next time the Trollocs invaded into Ravensburg land the army of Fadil was prepared and waiting for them, and the Trollocs were massacred on such a level that the people of Ravensburg begin to clamor for him to enter a control position within the council of Ravensburg. As he and his army made their way north towards Ravensburg they were opposed by a large force led by the towns leaders who feared his influence. The two armies would maneuver themselves for some time while Fadil waited for his reinforcements to arrive in the form of Soren from the Blood Dragons of whom arrived a week later and made his way to the city of Ravensburg which was now undefended and took control of the town under the banner of Fadil's army. With their city in their enemies hand and the people now obsessively in love with Fadil the army of the town begin to desert in massive numbers until three days after the fall of Ravensburg the army was a skeleton force and Fadil would surround the remainder with his force. No quarter would be offered these men and the remainder were massacred and their holdings and wealth distributed to those houses, and individuals that had not joined them and left Ravensburg.
Dutchy of Krieger
Main Article : House Krieger
House Krieger was always going to be the section of Weerhousen that gave them the most trouble as it had a solid, and powerful army that was led by the effective and honorable House Krieger. The conversion of this land would begin when Vashenesh, and Hercuso crossed the border with many of their Vampire Bloodline and made their way to the capital of Krieger. When they arrived on the outskirts they were way lade by the town guard of whom said they could not enter and that a series of tents would be set up so that the council of Krieger could meet with them. Vashenesh accepted this and prepared to lead his men to the area they were told to wait, when all of a sudden Hercuso became agitated about this supposed insult and raised his weapon at the guard commander.

These beasts are the only things standing between us and our destiny. I will not allow some creatures barely above cattle to slow the progress my people have made, and because of that I want them ruined. Leave no trace of them. Destroy their homes. Destroy their people. Destroy the very memory of them.
War with the Trolloc
See Also : Krax
With the Vampires staking claim to regions in Weerhousen it was only a matter of time until they upset the massive Trolloc population of the area. As the vampires extended their influence, the Duke W'soran begin massacuring villages and settlements of Trolloc in his constant search for subjects. This got to such a point that the Trolloc of the region begin marshalling under a particularly powerful Trolloc named Krax. Krax beggining raiding local human villages and towns of W'soran, but this was the wrong area to try and insite retribution from since W'soran cared little if anything for the region. As the attacks continued the Trolloc begin spreading to other regions, and attacked a village controlled by the Duke Abhorash. This would be the moment where the attacks of Krax would finally meet resistence as the forces of Abhorash marsheled themselves to destroy the attacking Trollocs.
Battle of Hornish Village
Seeing his servants under attack and a chance for war, the brilliant Abhorash marshaled his army and moved to the village. When he arrived at the village, he found only a small attack force, and was at first disappointed by the little force arrayed against him. As he approached closer though his force was quickly surrounded by the total Trolloc force. Abhorash's army was surrounded by a Trolloc force that outnumbered his by 4-1, but this only egged him on and he pulled his forces in and prepared to withstand the coming attack.
Abhorash was correct and the Trolloc did simply charge the Blood Dragon force.
Main Article : The Battle of Gurt
The war with the Trolloc of Weerhousen appeared to be going without a hitch, and it wasn't until a massive army of Trollocs ambushed Queen Neferata that they realized they were in a very hostile land. While travelling from Lahmia City to Krieger the convoy was ambushed by a large force of Trolloc. The convoy was moving with Queen Neferata, Vashenesh, Hurcuso, and a number of Vash Consteins vampires, so they were almost cocky in their arrogance. The vampires had traveled throughout Europe in the shadows and had been doing whatever they wanted, and this had blinded them to fact that they could be killed. Ushoran said it best later on.
"The Queen had taken us throughout Europe, and in those hundreds of years we had killed mountains of people, and stolen an endless amount of things. All this had been done in the shadows. In the secretive way of our lives, the Queen and the rest of them forgot that we could be killed."
Vashenesh fought by the side of the Queen, and he held the carriage for more then twenty minutes against nearly two hundred Trolloc, as the convoy was slowly wiped out he became more and more surrounded until finally during the end the Trollocs were slashing him on the back as he couldn't get around to fight all of them. Finally a large Trolloc came in and was able to defeat the severely weakened Vashenesh and kill him with a brutal slash across the neck which left him nearly decapitated. The Battle itself would end with the deaths of every vampire and human gaurd in the convoy except for the Queen and Hurcuso. When the Queen saw her beloved Vashenesh lying dead in front of her surrounded by dozens of Trolloc that were trying to kill her, she wept tears of blood. It is a very notable thing that in a battle that involved her husband, and much of her retinue she spent the entire post battle holding the body of Vashenesh and didn't even go looking for her husband Hercuso who had somewhat fled the battle in order to survive.
It was only out of luck that W'Soran arrived and was able to resurect Vashenesh that saved him from death, and Queen Neferata from madness.

Vokun is a powerful Teuton human fourth generation necromancer vampire of the Nechrarch Bloodline. Vokun is the progeny of Morokei of whome turned him thus making him a fourth generation Vampire and very loyal to Morokei atleast as loyal as a Nechrarch Vampire can be.
Vokun spent his youth as a slave, and this would be a tough life for him to live with. His time would come to an end as a slave as his master would take the slaves he had an go to Dresdan where he would attempt to sell them at the slave auctions there. After many bids a mysterious man came up to the action and paid hansomly for Vokun alone of which caused great comotion amongst the assembled buyers and the slaves themselves. Sold into Weerhousen as a slave, he holds extremely low amounts of loyalty to Weerhousen, and the Queen for that matter. This is due to the fact that despite all of the hardships, and violence he has endured he still believes in the mastery of Sigmar. His worship of Sigmar means that he basically hates himself, and this self-loathing has led him to ceremonially cut himself over the course of his life to the point that now much of his arms are nothing more then slashed bones as the actual skin has disappeared. Vokun in recent years has pulled himself back from the sanity cliff that many Nechrarch Vampires fall off, and has begun to work alongside the growing Weerhousen rebellion movement against Queen Neferata. In the Weerhousen Short story he attempted to speak to Morokei about joining with him, but when he entered into the labrinth that was Morokei`s home now he found his old master living in rooms covered with human skin, and speaking to experimentally surviving humans with no bodies and worse experiments. Seeing this he sadly bid his old master goodbye and prepared for the future day that the two would meet on the battlefield.
