Rune is a bi-sexual, pretty boy elf vampire. He can feed off sex and sexual energy, and travel through shadows. He seems to be the only individual alive to be able to keep up with Clarice, and because of this (and the fact that their relationship is entirely platonic; Clarice is too oblivious for him to feed off of) they are close friends. Rune sometimes acts as a father figure for Clarice, but his paternal tendencies extend beyond the child to his people in the north.
Rune is blind, or appears to be. While traveling, he plays at being a bard, having to be seriously pressed to reveal or utalise his sword or vampiric skills. He is in love with Marsona, and his master is Daemon. He also speaks french.
