Nature: Best described as a noble savage. Honorable, Proud, Dominant, Great Self-Control (unless drunk), generally very subdued more recently, and neutral minded, his actions swift nevertheless when his wrath is aroused.

Reknown: Once heroic, he had become more Obscure as a proxy and ethereal much as deityhood is new to him.
Occupation: Vintner, Horse Breeder, Diamond, Gems, Arms and Arcane Items Dealer. Inn, tavern, stable, academy shop Owner.
Kingdoms: Planar Kingdom of Seumires (soo-meer-eez)-- the shadow kingdom of Seumir, the Central Planes Kingdom, of An Morendor which includes the Central Planes, the Drylands west of the Great Eastern River, and Hunters' Forest south to the northern end (called Northbend) of Demon Horn Lake.
Seumires emulates Seumir in every detail but one... it is always night in Seumires.
A gateway leads between this mirror kingdom and its material counterpart, accessible to anyone who discovers its location in the Chateau's rose garden in the western courtyard grounds of both kingdoms.
Another very notable difference in Seumires is how barren of inhabitants it is as a new kingdom. Over time the spirits of dead vampires and other twice lived and died kinds will be drawn to Seumires, and those Byron knows and trusts in Morendor will visit his shadow realm at will. His planeswalker guardian Nicodemus is still ever at his side both proxy and ethereal, having created a planar double of his own to serve Byron Prime who goes now by the name Astraeus.
Resources: Count Decasey is the SOLE owner of Chateau Rouge De Lune-(Red Moon Chateau}, its stables and vinyard, and has been for over 2400 years. (Since 1992 real time).

He recently opened an icecream shop in Hassim which Saeed owns half of.
Very Wealthy, the property he purchased from his Lord in An Morendor stretches around his Chateau as far as the eye can see. Though he abdicated his throne to his son Armand, he still owns the chateau and the property that forms the district of Traegellen, and castle Redlion with the property of Southshire in Seumir. It is between the chateau and castle his corporeal proxy resides. He also owns businesses across the map.

Once Faithful Husband to his most beloved Lena, his terrible enemy Mog took his heart and his wife from him, only to give him another, Princess Saffiel of Hassim, whom he married, thinking Lena was dead. Byron and Lena had suffered through many ordeals and remained faithfully devoted to one another, until at last Mog divided them. If ever two immortals had an undying love for one another, it was Byron and Lena, but her death was too real in his heart for him to risk again. Lena was and shall always be his greatest weakness and his greatest strength. Of her he spoke, "She is my only light in the darkness, without her I dwell in the depths of my own Hell." Happily married for 845 years, divorce finally came with her return from death as he and Saffiel had already wed by the will of his enemy, yet Byron had come to love Saffiel deeply, to find in himself a new light despite the terrible darkness which had brought them together. To have lived and loved two women so completely was almost more than his heart could bear. Life should have held NO meaning after Lena was gone, and but for the will of Mog, and the love of Saffiel who he had given him the ability to love, it would not have. Now the beauty, the goodness and the wonder that was Saffiel held his heart and soul delicately in her beating heart.
The first time he thought Lena lost to him he saw to it that in mortus torpor he lie, and did so for ten years, none able to wake him from that sleep of cold death, until Lena returned and with her love and faith woke him. The stars shone brightly in the night sky again through her eyes.
A dark cloud overshadowed the light that was her when the terrible Beqidum Mog possessed him and lay to ruin all which mattered most to him. For a time; He took her hope and faith away, made her believe the demons from his past had awakened in him, and the formless one drove her and the children she graced him with from him. For years he stood alone, a shipwreck on desolate shores which only Saffiel came to brighten.
Now, during the very crucial dawn of his ethereal ascension, Saffiel has vanished from his life. For all his incredible power, his omniscience as a seer, he cannot find her. He cannot sense her but for knowing she was alive, for had she perished he'd have absorbed her and felt it. And was she not powerful like him? Durable? No, she was definitely alive. And so he begins his journey as a Deific entity anguished. infuriated, frustrated and frought with despair. If not for the spark of hope kept alive in him by the knowledge that SHE was alive, he might have sunk into the shadow kingdom of his immortal quickening and never been seen again. But for her and his unwillingness to shame her by selfishly surrendering to his despair, he survives her loss and moves forward. He tries not to hope too hard for her return for he cannot bear the pain of such hope and the disappointment it brings with every passing hour. Yet however bravely he strives to endure; the effects on him as an Astraeus god fresh out of the primordial soup will surely be felt to shape him.
When Byron ascended; his corporeal and ethereal embodiments were split, creating a physical proxy form and ethereal deific form. While the proxy remained in the material plane of the middle kingdom in Seumir, his prime being sank into Seumires, the shadow realm of his deific birth, a dark mirror realm of Seumir.
The two planes and two kingdoms remained connected by a shadow gate in an isolated corner of the chateau's rose garden. The gate was hard to see, hidden away in a corner of the hedge maze garden of roses behind a large, ancient rose hedge. Its location was the same in both realms.
Byron in the physical was at the mercy of his own ethereal embodiment's will, and in time the two could evolve separate ids. Byron by proxy nevertheless would ever be subject to his deific soul. Thus began his new chapter in life as the vampire God of Powers whose continued service to Acheron was given of his own free will. The god Acheron had released him of his mark when he ascended. The lack of its presence was just another adaptation he had to make.
