Not at all it is a soul thing, vlad's soul used to be Kieron the 
conquers' brother who would not play along with his Kieron's plans 
for the empire and formed the jerehg.  this is why when they went to 
the paths of the dead for aleria's soul Kieron asked whether vlad had 
anything to say to him.  this is also why when Vlad asks Aliera how 
reincarnation and genetics interact she looks at him oddly and says 
-very oddly - or something to the effect.
