My question - which will probably someday be answered - is:   When did 
the powers decide that Vlad would be a useful tool?   Clues indicate 
that it could have been early - possibly before his birth.   Maybe there 
was a period when they were unaware of him, but at least one of his 
early acquaintances isn't known for overlooking things.

And once identified, when and how did they start honing him?

With these questions in mind - the question of Kragar has some 
interesting directions available.
