I beg to kindly differ Vero - your opposition is strictly based on the fact that the PHB guiding backstory doesn't mention "criminal". I believe, (and still learning) that when it comes to role play in this game, it's all about imagination .. as long as the DM (larian) allows it.
Can't help it:
Player: "That was never part of our fifth edition."
DM: "I am altering the fifth edition, pray that I do not alter it any further."
Perhaps Astarion "the aristocratic", was so scared of his masters that he ended up developing extra skills that he was able to perfect over the last 100 years of his vampiric life.
