This seems like intended behavior to me. The vamp lies about who he is, and what he likes to divert suspicion, but when in an position of power would be able to request the items he actually has a preference for. I can see why it would be annoying however, when you expected mandates for iron items, and instead get something completely different.

krunshala: And it exposes the vampire, if you're paying attention.

Honestly I think It's not really to bad, I guess it would be even more fun if the Vampire actually took from both list and just ocassionally from his real alter ego!
