Traian is an ancient, sent out by Prince Vladimer Dubrinsky. He meets his lifemate, Joie, when she astral projects into a cave where he is recovering from vampire-inflicted wounds. He knew a master vampire unlike any other had taken his blood when Joie found him and was later, confronted by him. Originally, Traian though the vampire was Vadim Malinov but it turned out to be his brother, Maxim.
Centuries before, he heard of the many women and children that disappeared, and his sister, Elisabeta, was among them. However, he didn't find a trace of her, coming to the assumption that she had been killed. Unfortunately, it is revealed in Dark Legacy that Sergey had actually kidnapped her and kept her prisoner for centuries. Everyone agrees that after she has healed, Traian will be contacted to tell him the good news.
Traian did travel to Tariq's compound to reunite with his sister after so long, taking Josef with him and Joie. He was upset that she did not come to him as he had expected and did not know if Ferro would be good for her, but he quickly changed his thinking as he only wanted Elisabeta's happiness and safety.
