Banning Dalca is the Gheara of the Kansas Gura. This means he’s the leader of the Kansas tribe of vampires, aka blooders. He was blooded (made into a vampire) in 1641 when he was 24 years old, and has worked his way up in strength and political power, going all across Europe until he finally came to America. He’s a romantic at heart, but don’t let his apparent sensitivity fool you. Banning didn’t get to be Gheara by handing out hugs. He’s a bad ass blooder who will destroy anyone who gets in his way.
