As long as we're speculating, it's not impossible that Vlad *knows*
Kragar's true background (if there is one) and simply keeps mum about
it. The closest he comes to revealing knowledge of Kiera's background
is the comment in Issola about "I was aiming for Third Floor Relic,"
which is very oblique. Even Kiera has to question him quite pointedly
to get him to admit to knowing. All I'm saying is that even if Vlad
did know Kragar's background there's no particular way we the readers
could know about it, that I can think of.
