Count Tylieri was a vampiric servant of the Briarwoods and one of their New Nobles in Whitestone. As an NPC, he was played by Matthew Mercer.



Tylieri was a rotund, slimy-looking man with thinning hair and very pale skin. He had a bit of facial hair that never seemed to fully grow in. He wore fine clothing and rings on his fingers.[5]


Tylieri was often described as being cruel and sadistic.[6][7] This was supported by the fact that he had a torture chamber built in his home.[8]



Tylieri was one of the mercenaries that the Briarwoods brought with them from Wildemount in order to seize Whitestone. When they had successfully taken over, Tylieri was given a title, land, and power over the citizens of the town.[9]

Count Tylieri was known for being cruel, often beating his employees and servants. When Lord Briarwood heard of this, Tylieri was hanged from the Sun Tree.[10]

Some time after this, Count Tylieri rose as a vampire.

"Consequences and Cows" (1x26)

Vox Machina first heard of Count Tylieri from Desmond Otham, the Briarwoods' carriage driver who had previously worked under Tylieri. The young man claimed to have been beaten while employed under Tylieri. Eventually Lord Briarwood noticed this and persuaded Desmond to tell him what had happened. The next morning, Desmond saw Count Tylieri hanging from the Sun Tree.[11]

"Stoke the Flames" (1x30)

The party next heard Tylieri's name from Archibald Desnay, who told them of the New Nobles living within Whitestone. According to Archibald, Tylieri was a sadistic man who was in charge of Whitestone's timber production. He lived in the house that had previously been Anna Ripley's.[12] Vox Machina then decided that their next target would be Count Tylieri.

"Gunpowder Plot" (1x31)

When Vox Machina stormed Tylieri's estate, they found that he was prepared for their assault, standing ready with ten armed guards.[13] During the ensuing fight, he revealed himself to be a vampire by crawling across the ceiling, lashing out with claws, and displaying his fanged mouth.[14] Grog, Trinket, and Vax'ildan battled with Tylieri while Percy dealt with the guards firing down on them from above. Eventually Trinket managed to rip Tylieri's head from his shoulders, at which point the vampire's body dissolved into mist.[15] Keyleth first used Windwall in an attempt to dissipate what she thought was poisonous gas, then used a Sunbeam to evaporate the mist, killing Count Tylieri for good.[16]

After investigating the building, Grog discovered a hatch leading down into the basement,[17] which contained Tylieri's coffin.[18] The mist had been trying to reach it before being destroyed by Keyleth. Percy found another room that appeared to be the servants' quarters converted into a torture chamber, providing more evidence of Tylieri's cruelty.[19]


He is an underboss, working for the Briarwoods, but he does not have any other notable relationships.
