As the story goes...
- "This is it. The final boss. Every Hunter in Europe is assembled. Every fiber of our strength is here for the assault on Castle Volkov. I can feel his terrible gaze upon us."
- —Anton, Commander of the Order of the Exalted Lion
The Royal Castle of Batavia was constructed over a large hole in the ground that was a gateway to hell. In retrospect everyone agrees this was an unforced error.
The hole itself was no secret. At dusk, great clouds of infernal bats vomited forth from the gateway. At dawn, voices could be heard discussing infernal lunch plans. Haunted suits of armor walked the castle halls and zombies shuffled through the gardens. Dashing Prince Volkov earned the love of his people as the fiery defender of Batavia. But as king, living over a hellmaw proved too much. Before long, the Batavian court was placing bets on whether their sovereign would wind up a lich, a werewolf, or some kind of hungry wraith. Volkov ignored their gossip, as he was too busy getting to know an enchanting fanged lady who visited his bedroom every night. That she appeared outside the window, fifty feet above the ground did not bother Volkov. Soon all bets were settled.
Volkov was fiendishly practical about his new unlife as a vampire. He removed his heart to prevent staking. Batavia’s many foes did not know what had happened to make Volkov an even more ferocious warrior, but after Volkov put enough heads on pikes, they decided to go marauding elsewhere. Well, the Batavians thought, there’s always a silver lining.
Valhalla is not at all where Volkov expected to wind up, given his resume. Here, few speak his name, calling him Das Vampyr, Wapierz, Upyri, or Gramps (Caspian only).
- "Idiots! I want the ghost wolf-bats on the parapets and the bat ghost-wolves guarding the drawbridge! Of course they are different! I don’t care where the wolf bat-ghosts go. They’re useless."
- —Volkov, organizing the defenses of his castle.
Volkov is a brooding vampire with pale white skin and grey long hair. His most notable features are his dark blood-red eyes and red fingernails. His clothing resembles that of an old Victorian Vampire, however, the chest part is more open. He also sports a stylish red sash at his waist.
|Neutral||Volkov jumps in the air with his wings before revealing a heavy 3-tipped slash, finishing with a large uppercut with his axe.||21.48|
|HOLD: Volkov lunges forward with his wings before appearing in the sky, looming over his target before swinging down.
PRESS: Volkov lunges forward with his wings before swiping an uppercut with his axe.
|Down||Volkov jumps up and swipes down at his target three times, finishing them off with an upward slash.||25.41|
|Neutral||Volkov jumps up into the air and begins rotating his scythe like propellers and grabs his target hitting them repeatedly before sending them flying forward.||25.83|
|Volkov reveals a swarm of bats under his cloak and the swarm swallows the target sending them up before swiping them away in the opposite direction.||23.83|
|Down||Volkov flies up and summons a cyclone of bats on the ground below, sucking you in. The bats propel you towards Volkov and he slashes at the target with his scythe.||21.71|
Undoubtedly Volkov's greatest strength lies in his unique Signature set. With arguably only one exception (axe nsig), all of his signature attacks have either long range, large area-of-effect, long-lasting hitboxes, or some combination thereof. Scythe NSig in particular is deadly - despite having a similar range and hit area to Sir Roland's lance nsig, it lingers much longer, and also is easily strung into from many scythe light attacks. Unlike Legends who can focus primarily on light attacks, any strategy with Volkov that ignores his signatures is cutting their own potential effectiveness drastically.
