Master Of the City
– All vampires are under the protection and ruling of this person. Being the strongest in the city and most powerful by most standards. Brooklynn and Queens fall under this person
Stalking Horse – Decoy MOTC – This is the position that holds the most need for a Master. This role would be to meet anyone in place of the real MOTC where real danger is possible. Often given with instruction on how to act, respond and what outcome may occur. The decoy for those that might harm the real MOTC. This position does not have high authority over others, but is a more a security role but to be respected for what they do in the face of danger. They would be envoy to other groups as well and attacking this person no matter the message is considered an attack on the Kiss and declaration of War. You don't shoot the messenger.
Témoin - Second In Command - This person is next to follow should the MOTC be unavailable and takes over in duties. They speak for the MOTC when the leader is not around. Also they run Manhatten and the Bronx. master required.
Titus - Third In Command - Is in charge of Staten Island and handler of funds. They Report to the second and MOTC. 3rd handles finances and business dealings to extend our reach in the city. Both legal and illegal. Master required.
Astraeus - Public Relations - Is going to be our liaison to the RPIT, the public and getting the clean up crew to handle messy eaters. Master not required
Perses - Evil Doer - This will be when we need something done the MOTC or higher ranked cannot do themselves. Normally killing someone and not always a vampire rogue. Disciplining another may be left up to this person as well if the MOTC see's fit. master required
Spathí/Lepída - Enforcers The thugs of the Kiss. Like the guards that watch over events, keep and eye out on the room and if any commotion is started they are the ones to come up and drag you down to the dungeons. They flow orders from MOTC, 2nd and 3rd, but command all other enforcers beneath you. Yup you two are like the captains of the guard and security with NPC enforcers under you to direct and train. Master not required
Menoetius - Bodyguard/Assassin - Normally this would not be required, but seeing as our MOTC is blind and requires some additive protection. They would be by her side almost constantly and obey without question. Loyalty is a must and yes she does send them out to take out those that have become... troublesome. master required.
Animal to Call - Each Vampire when becoming a Master has the chance to be able to connect with an animal and 'call' this creature to them with mental summons. They have to obey when called. Sometimes this animal translates into the Lycan community and the vampire can call the group as a whole.
Bloodpointing - Required by all vampires. A turn of the or neck to an upper vampire in show of respect or when having to make amends for a slight. This will be done to the Master of the City upon meeting and Nova will touch the inside of the wrist in greeting for formal occasions.
Bloodoathing - This is a sharing of blood between two vampires to 'blood oath' to the Master of the City. This allows the Master to give strength and take strength from those beneath them. Some vampires cannot rise without this bloodoathing if their sire is dead or are otherwise drawing off their 'bloodline' Sourdre de sang. This is not required for all Vampires, but without this Bloodoathing, the Master is not as powerful to protect their ilk. Non-masters as a rule do this and all NPC's are considering having done this.
Chylde - You were turned by someone, that makes you their Childe and subject to their slight control - reason being.... a baby vamp needs helps and cannot always stop themselves. This power may relinquish after a time.
Human Servant - When a master vampire 'marks' a human or Lycan as their 'servant' but which they share powers and extended life, this is a connection and not done lightly. See the vampire guide on being marked.
Partagé - Those that share or offer blood up for all vampires and not just to a single one like a Pomme.
Pomme de Sang - “apple of blood”, a person that is a vampire's regular blood source and treated much like a beloved mistress. When you talk to a Pomme de Sang, you are pretty much addressing the vampire themselves.
Renfeld - A human that wants to be bitten, enjoys it and serves a vampire out of the hopes that they will be turned. They do not need to be rolled and serve with their own will in an almost fanatical way.
Rolled - Hypnosis on a person that makes them complacent or forget something. The hotel has staff of rolled that are too far gone to re-enter society and are merely servants made to obey.
Sire - The vampire that turned you. Its also considered bad form for turn and then abandon our Chylde.
Sourdre de sang - “fountain of blood”, the vampire at the head of a bloodline. It is considered bad form to attack one. Their power animates other vampires tied to them.
Stalking horse – a pretend leader that prevents people from knowing the true identity of the actual one. A front or trick.
Trimavite - When a Master vampire 'marks' their animal to call and a human servant into a tri-old of power sharing.
