Most elders were established at this time. Noted among them were:
Ventrue - Ashton Kincaid played by Joshua Hancock
Tremere - Mortigan played by Geoffrey Fortier
Toreador - Count Victor von Baern played by Paul Mercer
Brujah - Lydia played by Lyndee McKeeman
Nosferatu - Sardonigus played by Frank Branham
The declaration of our first Prince, Ashton Kincaid of the Ventrue,
occurs. This event was soon followed by tragedy as an attempt on the Prince's
life was made by a rocket launcher wielding assassin. However, at the last
minute Mortigan of the Tremere intercepts the blast and is apparently destroyed
in a shower of putrescent blood.
A Blood Hunt is declared on the assassin, the lieutenant of the Brujah
and the Tremere are quick to launch a concerted effort to capture the Kindred
who apparently slew their Elder. In time, the assassin was captured and given
over to the surviving Tremere as recompense. Popular rumor has it that they
Diablerized him in a particularly vile manner. These rumor are never confirmed
or denied by the Tremere.
Although an investigation reveals that the Brujah lieutenant was a deep
Sabbat agent hard, feeling and between the Brujah and other clans, particularly
the Venture and Tremere, blossom.
