Vladimir can best be described as the Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby when it comes to his wealth. Originally, he was the son of two immigrants who lacked a great deal in terms of not only wealth but also worldly possessions. As a result, he grew up with a sense frugality and need. Moreover, it was often his own gifts that allowed him to push through and gain what others would have thought to be part of what one should acquire. There is little doubt that if Vladimir were not as intelligent as he is he would have stayed the destitute son of immigrants.

Yet, the need for wealth did not capture him until later in life. He grew up believing that he should become something more and wanted to create a life that was better than that of his parents. Overall, it is probably one of the least selfish goals he ever possessed, especially because it was rooted in taking what was given to him by his parents and doing something with it.

And then enters Maddie.

Vladimir has always had trouble making friends. It is simply not part of his disposition. He holds a great deal of belief and is open about it, something which naturally dissuades other humans from thinking well of him. Moreover, he is an introvert who has the unpleasant gift for being what can only be described as a genius. It was only natural that his life is categorized by bullying and seeing enough of the dark side of humanity. Coming from a poor family did not help. Instead of grow compassion, he grew an intense dislike for most people.

Within college, he managed to befriend Jack and Maddie. However, this friendship ostracized him from others more from others than he already was. After all, the two were like him: both were highly intelligent and possessing of unusual beliefs. Jack...Jack did not exactly help either with his boisterous and hard-headed manner.

Maddie eventually becomes the center of his world. A strong crush takes hold. The day of the accident becomes quite important as a result. Jack makes a mistake, carelessly using the wrong substance when putting together the machine and Vlad suffers for it. Maddie, however, is saved and her feelings are swayed towards Jack entirely. Any possibility that Vlad might have held for Maddie appears to be entirely gone.

Yet, Vladimir has always been stubborn. He does not give up on his love for Maddie, even when she has become married. He is a pessimistic man, viewing people as swayable creatures. He thinks that he can change her feelings, show her that he is better than Jack. Jack certainly makes things easy with ho he acts.

But first, he must create himself anew. Much like the figure of Jay Gatsby, he believes that he cannot be with Maddie unless he is also worthy of her. A successful man is a worthy man. As such, he amasses an extensive amount of wealth...and not through entirely legal means.

THE DETAILS

Vlad's wealth was created through means which allowed it to be made with relative quickness, but also appear to be realistically made. The beginnings of it were primarily made from him possessing wealthy business tycoons and having them give him their businesses. The latter was created due to a mixture of him making several invisible burglaries and taking part in the invisible insider stock market. However, this was only the beginning of his wealth. From here, he nurtured the business he now possessed and his wealth grew. This was later poured into making a single company named Vladco when he was in his mid-40s.

By the time Vlad was in his 40s, he was among one of the wealthiest men in the world. However, his name was small enough that most did not know what he did, particularly because he kept as a recluse. It was only later that his name began to gain some meaning.

Vladco became particularly well known after he bought out a company that was known as Axion Labs right when it had suddenly begun to fall into failure. Most of the resources of his own company began to be poured into what Axion Labs had been doing: producing high-tech devices. With Vlad's expertise, the company jumped to success once again and gained notice, particularly within the unusual town it was placed within.

By the time Daniel's family has died, Vlad has begun to branch out, focusing less attention on creating weapons. At this point, he has begun to try and make the company more marketable towards the public. Once he takes Daniel it, he solely focuses upon this, even changing the aspects of the company which deal with high-tech devices to dolling out technology that is rooted more in defense than weaponry.

As the years go by the company begins to gain a great amount of success. As this happens, Vlad begins to branch out more in what sort of technology they sell to the public. At the moment, the company is heavily fixated upon technology such as phones and computers. Moreover, Vlad himself is considering branching out into the automobile industry.

Current Net Worth: $75.2 Billion

To give an understanding of how wealthy he is, Vlad would, by today's standards, be within the top five of the wealthiest people in the world. In particular, he'd be wealthier than Mark Zuckerberg. [Note: Net Worth is, for anyone who does not know, the value of all non-financial and financial assets own by a single unit, whether it be a person or not. It is determined by assets minus liabilities].

Vlad lives in a rather deserted part of Wisconsin, USA. His home is an extravagant castle that was formerly owned by an individual known as "The Dairy King." His ghost currently haunts Vlad's home; however, this fact is unknown to Vlad due to the reclusive [and perhaps also the kind] nature of the ghost. The only individual who currently knows about the ghost's existence is Danny.

Upon entering Vlad's home, his obsession with the Packers becomes incredibly obvious. The entire foyer is decorated in the team's colours. Moreover, he owns many objects in regards to the team, such as signed footballs and jerseys. As he enjoys telling the few people who visit his home, he wants to actually buy the team but has had trouble doing so for decades.

Thankfully, the obsession stops here. Vlad's home is expansive and, despite being a castle, quite up to date. It possesses several bedrooms and bathrooms. The most notable rooms within the house are his library, the private theater, and his private laboratory [something which is carefully hidden away]. Outside, he has a pool and tennis court. Only the former is well used.

Oddly, he has never rid the home of the portraits of the Dairy King and they can be found littered throughout the house. Tastefully, of course.

Vlad's private laboratory is within the basement and can be accessed through a hidden room that is within his personal study. The lab itself is high-tech. Due to Vlad's tendency to personal study in regards to science, a fair amount of what is within the lab tends to go beyond what one might expect within a personal laboratory. Moreover, he often keeps his personal projects, some of which are based on what is considered mere theory by the average human, within this lab. Unlike in the show, Vlad does not have a ghost portal.

Outside of Daniel, the only other people who know about the lab's existence are the magical beings that he has or does interact with.
