Valund was a Nord man and Vigilant of Stendarr who was a member of the Dawnguard when it was first formed.
Vigilant of StendarrEdit
Valund was one of the Vigil's greatest men, commended for his prowess in battle. However, his curiosity of the undead consumed him, and, in his obsession, he succumbed to forbidden magic, sacrificing morality to fight evil. His refusal to conform to the Vigil's doctrine eventually led to his excommunication.
