The Bald Cabal Vampire is an unnamed Vampire who serves the Cabal in Blood Omen 2.

ProfileEdit

As with all vampires of the era following Blood Omen, the unnamed bald cabal vampire was likely sired by Vorador at some point in the era following Blood Omen,[1] though it is unclear if he was a participant in Kain's vampire army or was turned later.

When the Cabal revived Kain and Kain made his way to Sanctuary in Chapter 3: The Lower City, the bald cabal vampire was among the vampires gathered when Kain arrived and news broke (from a second male cabal vampire) that Umah had been captured by the Sarafan[Blood Omen 2]. The Vampire would again be present when Umah Teleported Kain and herself to Sanctuary at the end of Chapter 5: The Sarafan Keep and exposed the location of the Nexus Stone[Blood Omen 2].

After the destruction of Main Factory in Chapter 6: The Industrial Quarter, the bald cabal vampire was apparently personally responsible for the discovery and recovery of Kain's unconscious body as he observed Kain being blown from the roof of the building.[2] Later the vampire would again be present in Sanctuary at the end of Chapter 9: the Device, when Kain returned to Sanctuary with Janos Audron and informed the Cabal of the threat posed by the Hylden Gate[Blood Omen 2].

After this point, the fate of the bald cabal vampire (and indeed all of the minor cabal vampires) is unclear. Despite Vorador planning to "prepare our forces for the final attack",[3] when Kain deactivates the Shield Generator in Chapter 11: The Hylden City, only Janos and Vorador teleport in and no other cabal vampires join them. Ultimately it is unknown whether, as Umah feared, Kain hunted down the remains of the Cabal in the events of Soul Reaver.[4]

NotesEdit

  • The Bald cabal vampire has no dialogue throughout Blood Omen 2 (the only minor Cabal Vampire to speak is the Injured Cabal Vampire), however he appears to be one of the more significant members of the faction, appearing in every Sanctuary cutscene (a distinction he shares with Vorador)[Blood Omen 2].
  • Like many of the Cabal Vampires it is unclear if the bald cabal vampire was a part of Kain's Vampire Army or if he was even a vampire at the time of the war. upon meeting the Cabal for the first time in Sanctuary, Kain only acknowledges Vorador.[5]
  • Vorador seems to indicate that it was the Bald Cabal Vampire who personally recovered Kain's body from the Industrial Quarter at the end of Chapter 6[2] and the bald cabal vampire bows in acknowledgement[Blood Omen 2].
