- "And so we commend Vladimir's remains to the night. Filings to filings; rust to rust."
- ―Vladimir's eulogy, given by Preacherbot[source]
Vladimir (2790-3001) was Bender's uncle and the owner of Thermostadt Castle. He died, at age 211, and left the castle to Bender and his cottage to Arcadian Days. His programming leaked in his grave and he became a hologram. He has a son, Tandy and a butler, You There. It is unknown why he left his castle to Bender. He may have run out of relatives.
