Vladko Tyran was the gealous, fully mad and a maniac leader of the Helghast splinter faction known as "The Black Hand" (a terrorist group consisting of radicals, fanatics and ex-military personnel who sought to reignite the Vektan-Helghast war). He was born shortly after the Teracide and was considered a miracle child by Helghast propaganda around the time of his birth. That being the case, he and his foster father formed the Black Hand, and eventually their radical views turned into terrorism and violence. New Helghan was quick to publicly condemn Tyran's actions as Black Hand leader during his adult life. He took control of the Black Hand from his adopted Father Kris Howl. He was killed by Allison Jakes in the Remnant Wars.
