Leader: Robert Pratt
Description: Family isn't about sharing the same genetics, that's being related. Family is when you love someone, and you would do anything for them. You trust them, take care of them, and in Return they do the same. It's the type of bond that holds you together through thick and thin - regardless of outside influences.
Description: Faction Bio The Paladin takes you to a hideout, where she instructs other hunters to perform a strange ritual on you. They tattoo mysterious runes and symbols onto your skin, then they spend hours meditating over you. Your runes begin to feel increasingly hot, and eventually the searing pain is almost unbearable. Suddenly, the pain stops. When you are done, the first Paladin explains how to use your newfound strength and skills. You feel superhuman! The Paladin asks that you always use your gifts to hunt and kill the undead -- particularly the vampire "abominations", then she sends you on your way.

Description: Motto: Non Sibi Sed Omnibus - Not for ones self, but for all
History: d’Artois was conceived by Pi as a bloodline where those directly under her could come to find a place of support and succor. At the time she created d’Artois she had found her animal, a wolf. This bloodline was created in large part by an instinctive need to create a pack; a working, supportive and co-dependent unit. It is then a true adage, in d’Artois, that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Over time the loosely hierarchical leadership structure solidified and Pi d’Artois took on a more active role as mentor, advisor and leader. Elliot Lancaster-d’Artois her Second in Command.
Mandate: d’Artois stands as an ever evolving example of the Golden Rule where the motto “Non Sibi Sed Omnibus” is embraced as a way of consistent reciprocity. Taken to heart both that we are stronger together than we are on our own and that in utilizing the varied skills of the many we make each individual stronger. It took time to conceive of how each of those in the bloodline could contribute a part of their skills to build not only themselves but others, but with time it has slowly solidified into a thriving free enterprise within the bloodline.
Faction - Canidae d`Artois: Today d’Artois stands also as a faction, a formalized embodiment of the bloodline; adjunct to the whole. Not all who are in the bloodline will gain immediate membership into the Faction (although, refusal of application is with extreme judiciousness) and not all in the Faction will be direct descendents of Pi d’Artois.
Given the tumultuous nature of Harper Rock the Faction serves the dual purpose of both protection and efficiency for the bloodline. Where skills, lineage members, resources and necessity are nurtured and protected.
You will not be granted membership into this faction merely by siring under one of our line. First you must prove yourself an active, contributing member of this family and have embraced the ethos of reciprocity that has come to define the nature of the lineage. That is not always in skill but also in words, deeds, time and effort. Only after this, will this last door open to you.
Becoming a vampire under a d’Artois is only the beginning.
Leadership: Pi d’Artois - Lineage Head, Elliot d’Artois – Second in Command
Mentors: Reilly – Income and Banking

Leaders: Elizabeth Naarc
Description: The Deux Corbeaux was founded when Elizabeth from the Noble bloodline and Etienne from the Worthington bloodline married. The sub-bloodline originally consisted of those that shared the blood of both Elizabeth and Etienne, as the two founders desired to have those that they sired and so forth work together to aid anyone as a family would. Over the fruition of the sub-bloodline in its first year of development, there have been others outside of their blood that have either been adopted by Etienne or Elizabeth, or have asked to be part of their familial house, but not necessarily adopted by either founder. Admittance to the family is contingent upon Elizabeth's approval since Etienne's departure of The Deux Corbeaux in November of 2012. Founded in August of 2011 and led by Elizabeth since 2012.

Description: Are you fed up with the way things seem to just disappear from where you left them? Like those fancy security camara's and such. Have you wanted to make that "you know what" that strolled into your apartment/lair/business, right through the locked door, "pay"? You got a pic of them as they nosed around, touching your private stuff and then as they left they just reached down and took your camara, but you really hate the drama involved in dealing with stuff like this. Does it make you gag just thinking about at the whiney tone, that would most likely fill your ears, when the thief/trespasser is confronted by you or someone close to you? Is there someone who you loaned some cash to and has all of a sudden become the most hard to find person in the whole area? If any of the above scenarios ring true to a happening in your world, I believe you should contact Valkyrie Justice. We will go deal with the whiners, we will go get your stuff back or we will get you compensation for your property that is now gone. What if they try their lame lip service on me or what if they just refuse to pay? Valkyrie Justice is prepared to flex her muscles, on your behalf, if needed. No, we aren't gonna go kill someone for you. But, we will use our [i]talents [/i] to bring the matter to a close, whether by wit or by force. Valkyre Justice are not assassins or mercenaries. We are someone that you can call when you need some Justice served. Reduce the noise pollution in Harper's Rock by using Valkyrie Justice to reduce the whine.

Description: Clandestine Operations
Description:Founded in secrecy on April 1, 2012 by Hariasa, The Fifth Column's singular goal is simple: they wish to put an end to the heavy-handed enforcement of the Masquerade. Their membership, code, and even their very existence as a coalition is, for the time being, unknown to other vampires.
Description: The Middle Road is a loose organization of like-minded/open-minded vampires who want to find long term solutions to the problems that the vampire community faces. The most obvious of these problems is that of vampire secrecy: the Masquerade is generally viewed by this organization as necessary in the short term, but unsustainable in the long term.
Members of The Middle Road may come from any number of backgrounds or other factions: it is not an organization that demands fealty, or exclusivity. We may discuss and debate ideal law in a vampire society, but this is neither an Enforcement or Legislative group. Rather than impose some will on the community, and punish those who disagree, we will strive to create and add to the community in order to provide opportunities and foster unity. The purpose of this process is to build towards a vampire community that could eventually integrate with human society.
To this end, The Middle Road seeks to:
- I. Support the Community - aim to provide services to members of our community that help us (especially our fledglings) avoid breaking the Masquerade. Focus on prevention rather than hunting down offenders... I don't want this to become a hunting group, tribunal, or the architects of a prison.
- II. Increase Economic Strength - aim to create businesses in all fields and areas. Find collaborative projects for owners of like-minded businesses to increase collaboration for mutual benefit. Support the growth of new businesses by sharing advice, customers, and perhaps even eventually providing small business loans to ambitious fledglings (side project).
- III. Increase Political Strength - aim to place individuals with our interests in mind (perhaps thralls) in positions of power when opportunities arise. Use economic clout and publicity to get these individuals into public offices where they can help us maintain the Masquerade in the short term, and help integrate us in the long term.
Leader: Stephanie Wylde
Description: Members of this religion believe in the Goddess Nox. Members may practice their religion formally or casually, and may or may not recognize the authority of Noxian priesthoods such as the Order of Night's Embrace or the Paladins of Nox.
Membership is not restricted in any way, and members are under no obligation or expectation. All who apply are approved. Membership simply denotes that the character currently claims to believe in Nox.
Contrary to the faction page, the religion was not founded by Cassandra, and is not formally led by her. It is simply a set of beliefs which date back to before the Holocaust. Cassandra is only one member of it, though she has devoted herself to its revival and the recovery of its ancient wisdom.

These are factions that once existed in the city but are no longer around or active.
An early attempt at establishing a measure of order and government among vampires, The Council was led by the first generation of almost every bloodline and beneath them there were representatives, elected by vote. Its first efforts were lawmaking, and in order to enforce them, they created The Enforcers (see below). While a lot of the laws voted on within the Council were common sense, some were dissatisfactory to the population. Some bloodlines severed themselves from the group. The Council grew unpopular, and even a restructuring wasn't sufficient for its popularity to improve. It is therefore a defunct faction.
This group was a policing group of The Council. Their primary goal was the hunting of Masquerade offenders, and it sought to include every bloodline: two representatives from every line that was part of the Council, as well as representatives from some other factions. However, this did not stop anyone else from hunting Masquerade offenders. The inability of its leaders to control the Enforcers, as well as the dissolution of the Council, led to the end of this faction.
The first faction to be formed in the city, this group was started by Hellequin. Its purpose was self-confessedly not noble, but mercantile. The Hellhounds went after Masquerade offenders. Eventually, Hellequin left the group in Phoenix's leadership, and from her it eventually went briefly to a Triumvirate leadership consisting of Malachai, Reganleif and Asher. The Hellhounds are not believed to be active any more - though its former members are still around.
For necromancers, started by Seb.
Today the building is vacant and its members few, though some say the founding Necromancers still dwell within, fine-tuning their craft.
