Ismark is the son and only natural child of the late posadnik of the village of Barovia, Kolyan Indirovich. Known by some in the village as “Ismark the Lesser.” Evidently spent a lot of time in the tavern.

Ismark has focused himself for much of his adult life on martial training. Unlike most of the folk in the village, he holds a defiant attitude toward the circumstances into which he was born, and he has struggled with the knowledge that he, his family, and everyone in the valley are trapped forever in a punishment for a sin that they did not commit. He has seen strangers come through the village before and never return, but he committed himself to one day killing the Devil, if only the right opportunity presented itself.

When the Devil turned his gaze towards Ismark’s sister, however, Ismark knew that he could wait no longer, but by that point, none were left in the village courageous enough to stand by their new posadnik.
