Fiske Vanir (Common: Ferdinand Vanir; High Imperial: Ferdinand Basileii; Haeseni: Fiske Vanir) (13th of the Sun’s Smile, 1524 - 2nd of the Deep Cold, 1583), also known as Ferdinand I or Fiske "the Bloody", was the 4th Baron of Kraken’s Watch from his father’s death in 1572 until 1574. He was later elevated to the status of Margrave by Emperor John III and reigned from 1574 until his abdication in 1583. A staunch supporter of Northern Unification and King Peter of Haense, he was revered by his countrymen as a true Haensetian patriot.

Fiske is most notable for his role as Lord Paramount of the Carnatian League during the Riga War. Under his leadership, the League was able to successfully retake the castle of Kraken's Watch and restore the House of Vanir to their noble status.
