Council of Blood
The Council of Blood presides over courtly functions in Revendreth. Castellan Niklaus is a strict military commander with an indomitable will and impenetrable armor. Lord Stavros, a foppish dandy, leads the court in dance but is also deadly with his blades. Baroness Frieda wields powerful anima magics and commands the dredger wait staff--along with the respect of the entire court.

- The names of the Council of Blood (Stavros, Frieda, and Niklaus) are likely a reference to comedians Stavros Halkias, Adam Friedland, and Nick Mullen, who host a popular comedy podcast whose name is not suitable for inclusion on this wiki.
- Additionally, Niklaus is the name of one of the original vampires in The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (TV series), and Stavros is the name of a character Nathaniel Buzolic plays in Pretty Little Liars but is also one of the original vampires in the aforementioned series named Kol. Frieda is similar to Freya, who is another member of the original vampire family of The Vampire Diaries while not being a vampire herself but instead a witch, similar to the ranged attacks of Frieda.
- The Danse Macabre phase is based on the allegorical genre from the Middle ages of the same name.
- Patch 9.0.2 (2020-11-17): Added.
