Born 4/28/960, the son of Denis Ludmilovitch by his second wife Dara who died shortly after childbirth(a non-local, possibly of Darine descent). From the age of 11 Vaklav was involved in the 3 years of fighting resulting from the Marileniev uprising. After being orphaned at the battle of Lavv he continued with the army of the north until their defeat at the hands of Baron Kelvin’s white cloaks in early 973. He spent 8 months in a Karameikan prison camp where he was branded as a rebel and eventually returned to the Staroi Voda along with the other prisoners due to the delayed start of the construction of the Duke’s Road.
Back in Porog he met Tym, a war orphan from Verbonum, and struck up a friendship with him.
In early winter 978 Vaklav, homeless and facing the prospect of a winter without food or shelter undertook a dangerous mission to save Alena Hallaran, the niece of the new Karameikan ruler of the Staroi Voda.
