Vasant is a Custos merchant, the nephew of Dragoon. Not much is known about his back story, he keeps his past a tight secret. He was sent on a mission by his people to capture the Dreamer Saleana and force her to show them where her kinsmen are holed up. Charming the information out of her. But little did he or his people expect the reaction she would have on him.
Vasant has a very secret and stoic nature in truth. But he hides it beneath a flamboyant and playful air. The only creature whom he truly trusts is his unnamed oxryb who he had raised from a calf. Something he is very proud of. Being a Custos Vasant normally looks no different from a man. Sharper senses, greater strength, more durable flesh, swifter healing, but still a man. But his Transverto form is that of a terrifying subhuman being. Because of this and his very nature, he considers himself a monster and not worthy of his growing affection for Saleana.
