Stefan Uccello also known as The Soldier is a vampire and friend of Mercy Thompson. He was a mercenary during the Renaissance and was turned by Marsilia.


Stefan has dark brown hair and eyes that are brown like polished walnuts. He is as tall as Samuel Cornick and built along the same lines, making him tall and in good physical shape that would be expected of the soldier he was.


Stefan has a cheerful and warm personality that is genuine despite being a vampire though he can be serious and terrifying when the situation calls for it. He has the strength of will that most vampires lack, being able to keep a large menagerie alive and healthy in his care and keep from killing his bound. He is in love with Mercy and Marsilia too to a certain degree.


Stefan arrived in the Tri-Cities area a few centuries ago. A hint at his past in Blood Bound indicates he previously was running away from Italy because Marcilia killed the mate of an alpha werewolf who belonged to the lord of the night.
