The Strain is based on a trilogy of novels by filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro. Del Toro dished a few more details on the Master character.

"He's gone through serving an emperor in Rome. He was in the Crusades," the writer-director said. "He is incredibly intelligent, politically very savvy, but at the same time ruthless. He doesn't care about humans."
