Night's Black Agents: Dracula Dossier
Someone who makes purchases for shadowy figures
Referenced by Johan Schmidt as a buyer of goods, legal and illegal, Mr. Valant is a French-born citizen living in an upscale flat in Vienna. Schmidt mentioned to Wolfgang Fechtner that he would be passing on the Hillingham Brooch to Valant as a contact of Valant’s was looking for something quite similar. Schmidt did not know who Valant was working in connection with.
Valant’s business, Contre-Temps, located in Vienna, was a treasure trove of items when the agents broke in and made off with a variety of items, including the Hillingham Brooch and the Bathory Journals, all kept behind a massive wall of security as well as supernatural security in the form of the Guardian Creature.
