The new Primogen was established in 2002 by Prince Giovanni and is set up like a corporation. In 20 years, it has become one of the most efficient and well established cabals in Camarilla society. Often praised for it's control and oversight, the San Francisco Primogen has garnered an incredible amount of power in such a short time.
Each member has a specific role to play and each are incredibly powerful in their own right. As a unit, they are a true force within kindred society. Prince Giovanni, one of the shrewdest businessmen known, has amassed a great deal of wealth and power. What he doesn't control directly, the Primogen does.
And woe to those kindred or enemies of the Prince who think his grip is weak and not well established. He has a three tiered system in place to deal with trouble or insurrection. The WARTRIBE consists of Primogen members Felica Nocturne (Director of Security), Gunnar Torsten (Director of Special Operations) and Vicar Kraus (Director of War). The ongoing joke among Kindred is that these three answer to the Prince and the Angel of Death, as they have certainly racked up a body count unimaginable to most.
The Primogen meet at the Elysium Palace of Fine Arts, a beautiful and impregnable building on the outskirts of town.
Quote: "Don't cross me. You'll end up in financial ruin or worse, buried under one."
Prince Giovanni is a centuries (500?) old vampire from Italy. He is polite and listens well. His mastery of Necromancy is only out shinned by his ability to navigate vampire politics. Well respected within his clan, Ambrogino is also fantastically wealthy. His Princedom is so successful because of his vast network of contacts.
Quote: "People love to believe in stereotypes. It makes them make sense of the world to some degree. I will play the boogieman, the master mage or the dilettante if need be. But, it all serves a purpose."
Lazo is the longest serving Primogen member in the Bay Area and has lived in San Fran since 1910. He has worked his way to being the "second in command" and holds more arcane knowledge than anyone else in the city. He naturally has a strong command presence which underlies his ruthlessness.
Title: Director of Security
Quote: "Freedom comes in many forms but financial freedom is the best. You come at me or my allies with your guns, you'll be facing attack helicopters and warships. Do. Not. Cross. Me. Thank you sweetie."
Also part of the War Tribe, Felicia serves as the Primogen's security specialist. She controls numerous military and weapons contractors in California and has the ability to procure anything she needs at a moments notice. A capable fighter, Felicia is wealthy and powerful and really not your typical Brujah. She is articulate and has amassed favours from almost every kindred in the Bay Area. Who knows what would happen if she cashed those in?
Title: Director of Special Operations
Quote: "I come from a line of Gangrel that are much different that the one's found in the new world. Ferocity is what I bring. You will die."
Gunner was born in Norway 300 years ago and has viking blood surging through his veins. He is part of the War Tribe which is employed by the Prince to keep order in the city when force is necessary. Stern with a dry sense of humour, Gunnar is a capable killer with vast military knowledge. He claims that he has fought in every major war for the past 300 years.
Title: Director of Communications
Quote: "Those who control the narrative, control the perceptions of the masses."
Elise is likely one of the most powerful vampires in the Bay Area, not because of her personal power but because of what she controls. She controls almost ever major news outlet in San Francisco including television, radio and news papers. She also has sway over several other agencies like the police, fire, and public works. She is extremely charismatic and always makes a person feel comfortable when around her.
Title: Director of Information
Quote: "I've been subjugated by the Sabbat and was saved by the Camarilla. I don't have time for the politics but it seems my wish doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. I've seen the truth and its frightening."
Graf took over reluctantly as the Nosferatu Primogen member when Vanguard died in the Purge. He has no desire to lead and finds the vampire politics exhausting. He has been chronicling, secretly, the most powerful kindred on the planet and has written 49 accounts thus far, including NATHAN KENT!
Title: Director of the Masquerade
Quote: "If you step out of line, I'll know about it. If you need help correcting that overstep, you'll need me. You'll need me m-m-more than anyone else."
Peter has been under estimated for years and although he did serve on the former Primogen, he never was afforded the respected he wanted. He speaks with a slight stutter and is in charge of keeping the Masquerade together in the city. Most kindred dislike him as he is self centred and black and white in his outlook.
Title: Director of War
Quote: "The Ravnos mastered illusions. They are a tribe that the Camarilla need. I am that solution. The one that covers up secrets or reveals them."
The last member of the War Tribe, Vicar is an anomaly in the kindred world. The only known Ravnos to serve on a Primogen, No one knows why or how Vicar came to sit on Ambrogino's council. Born in Germany and of Gypsy blood, Vicar is an imposing figure who speaks little. One of his more odd duties is to patrol the boarders of the city an make sure interlopers don't come in uninvited.
Title: Director of Finance
Quote: "If you've had a good time in San Fran, its because of me. Your favourite nightclub, bar, coffee shop, art gallery or theatre-that all me. Its amazing how much you hear when you are everywhere."
Graham is not only your typical Toreador, some say he is the template for all modern ones. He currently owns 80% of all clubs, bars and entertainment within the city. His influence has skyrocketed since serving on this Primogen (he was also serving on Kent's Primogen as well). Graham is everything a Toreador strives to be and more...so much more.
