The Savage Night
Having crushed the 2013 uprising from within his own covenant, Arthur Sherrill, San Francisco’s Carthian Prince, managed to reverse decades of eroding power by getting it’s remaining members back in line. Although his reputation has suffered within the Carthian Movement as a whole, he was no longer forced to rely on support from the other covenants in the city – or make the compromises necessary to maintain it – and what followed was a period of relative stability.
That all came an abrupt end with the recent unprovoked assassination attempt by vampires from Chinatown, known as the Celestials, in which his Herald, Saxon Bontrager, was destroyed, and Sherrill himself was severely wounded. In the aftermath of this attack, he has withdrawn from making public appearances, speaking only through his new Herald, Lysander, while the city itself is mired in a clandestine war.
