The Bloody Capital
There are two centers of power in Washington, D.C. The Prince, Marcus Vitel, and the Tremere, led by Potifex Peter Dorfman. The Nosferatu, Malkavian, and Gangrel clans all have an alliance which builds daily and could be a threat to all others. The Brujah are concerned with the Anarch movement and the Toreador, the architects of the Washington, D.C. plan, are a tattered wreck of a clan.
Prince Marcus Vitel rules with an iron hand. He does not forgive. He instead creates examples. Nonetheless, the Prince does not pay attention to things that do not directly effect him. The Nosferatu say that if you can avoid the Prince’s gaze, you can do anything… that is, if you can also avoid the Pontifex’s attention.
