Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin. A Russian mystic who is perceived as having influenced the latter days of the Russian Emperor Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their only son Alexei. Rasputin had often been called the "Mad Monk" In reality his dark powers came from the vampiric discipline Dementation, for Rasputin was a vampire from clan Malkavian hence his nickname The Mad Monk. It is said that Rasputin "healed" the severe hemophilia that Alexei had by feeding him his blood making him into a Ghoul.
There are many stories regarding the true nature of Rasputin, for some consider him of clan Brujah, Followers of Set and even a Ventrue ghoul, the truth may never be revealed but hints have been found that Rasputin tried to achieve absolute mastery of all the vampires by mixing the blood of every vampire clan, and attain the powers of every kindred in the world, that is why many believe that Rasputin descended from different clans, and most importantly the resiliency he demonstrated at being shot, stabbed, poisoned, bludgeoned, and drowning. As Rasputin entered torpor for the severity of his injuries he found final death at the stake by being burned and beheaded, ending him for good.
