You know Kane's defenses better than anybody.
— Vladimir to Set

Vladimir Menshikov, also known as Vlad the Inhaler due to his raspy breathing and voice, is a Russian Magician serving as one of the main antagonists in The Kane Chronicles. Vladimir is a descendant of the priests of Ra, the ones who had written the Book of Ra. Vlad, who was originally considered a hero by the House of Life, served as the leader of the 18th Nome in Russia. He served as an assassin for rogue magicians, which, alongside his increasingly chaotic methods, caused him to quickly become a villain. Vladimir's goal is to destroy the Book of Ra and allow Apophis to rise and defeat Ra to plunge the world into chaos. His attempt to destroy the book costed him his eyes, face, and voice, leaving him permanently wounded and disfigured.
