Northwood is a Moroi who works at Tarasov. Wes brings Rose and Lissa to him and says they are new feeders. Northwood is surprised because they are not due and never get feeders that are so young. Wes explains the situation to him and leaves the girls with him. Lissa uses compulsion on Northwood and orders him to tell the guards that Victor Dashkov has to come for a feeding.
