–-Nadil talking to Rath before their battle.
Nadil Bloodedge is the one of the primary antagonist in the Blood Reign series. Nadil acts like a peaceful, kind, and caring father in the very beginning of the series however behind this hides a curl, paranoid, and crazed being. His paranoia and his insanity leads him to kill his brother-in-law and soon he attempts to kill his brother-in-law's child fearing that the blood of child's father will lead up to the destruction of his kingdom.
Many details of Nadil's early life are unknown. Besides being born into vampire royalty, there are many things that remains in the shadows. No-one knows how he has attained the accursed blade of Exodus and how he controls the madness itself.
Nadil appears to be a young attractive man, with long dark brown hair that reaches down to his shoulders, his skin is white, and he has sapphire 'empty' blue eyes. His appearance changes when he tastes blood, his hair becomes more wild and longer, his skin is pale, his nails extends further and become sharper, and his eyes turn into lustful dark ruby red.
He on a regular basis wears custom tailor clothing, wearing a long black suit with red trimmings, long sleeves that covers his hands, a long collar, silver buttons, he has 3 silver rings on each arm, has 4 rings on his left hand, an amethyst purple ring on the pointing finger, a red ruby ring on the middle finger, a sapphire blue ring on the index finger, and a emerald green ring on the pinky finger.
Before the start of Blood Reign Nadil was a kind, caring, and loving father. In the earlier days he was madly in love with the love of his life Rosaline Alucard or now known as Rosaline Bloodedge. A few years later after marrying Rosaline, he has become the new ruler of vampires. This new power however didn't corrupt him, he just wanted a home and a life with his wife. But as days pass their lands are being raided by the werewolves, sensing no other way, he starts a war with the werewolves. Years have gone by but war hasn't changed at all. With all this blood and chaos surrounding Nadil, Nadil eventually is corrupted by the madness of blood, chaos, fear, and victory.
His personality changed little by little, becoming more cruel and blood-thirsty. He, lusting more power, travels to the forgotten parts of Amityville — there he meets with a dark-cloaked figure; the cloaked figure asks Nadil what he truly desires. Nadil replies, 'To spill the blood of my enemies and to drink the rivers of immortality'. The dark-figured then smirks and gives Nadil the location of an ancient dark weapon that would grant Nadil the desire and power he needs to reach immortality. He travels to the location and months later comes back to the vampire kingdom colder then ever wielding a long-black weapon in his hands, with the blade's edge is the color of blood.
He, after attaining the weapon becomes far more ruthless, cold, heartless, and crazed. He attacks random villages just to see the color of blood, kills many of his own people who deny his rule, and kills those who he thinks will overthrow him. He even had thoughts on killing his wife Rosaline but never went through with his plans.

In a nearby village they have located the child of Alucard, they had completely destroyed the village, turning most of the villagers into vampires. The child watched as Nadil himself slew the child's mother and father then, Nadil pierce the child's heart with his sword killing the child...or so he thought. Moments later after he walked out the room, the child lying in a pool of his own blood, he crawls over to where his mother's body lays, hoping that she is still alive, he lays his head on her lap slowly dying, his mother using her last breath gives the child a kiss on cheek and tells him that she loved him.
