Vladlen found reprieve from his incurable illness due to the resolute efforts of the hex doctor Salata. Finding it odd that she had not asked for any form of recompense, he summoned up the courage to ask why she went to the lengths she did. Her reply confirmed his instinct: "Because I love you." As Vladlen watched Salata gather experimental sacrifices all for his sake, he felt unrivaled bliss despite knowing the depravity of her actions.
