This is intended to be an organic, ongoing document that the entire clan contributes to. This is the place to assemble any little
tidbits about our fellow courtiers that might be useful in future. Please refer to this file before any significant meetings with
members of the Sausalito Court. If you have information to add, please e-mail it to Rebecca
and she'll add it to the file. She's done the initial work, and she would
appreciate further contributions!
Out of game note: This 'document' is actually a collection of paper files, kept at the Tremere chantry and written in Enochian. Remember,
Jean Paul has ordered all Tremere to learn this language. Obscurity can be valid security unto itself... ;)
Cassandra (Digg's Last Word) - last update 4/9/01
??? - suspect ancilla.
Sheriff of the court.
Biological sibling to Diggs.
Carrier of the blood disease. Can we get a sample of his
vitae before we cure him? The more the better.
Member of a coterie compromising Christian DiMedici, Rogue
and Rebecca Logsdon.
Personality - Very loyal to her brother and
protective of him too. This may be exploitable. Somewhat rational and willing to
listen to reason. Cultivates the 'rough and ready' Brujah persona.
Diggs - last update 4/9/01
Seneschal to the court of Sausalito. Vied with
Gideon for the throne. May possibly still be maneuvering to obtain power?
Biological sibling to Cassandra.
Carrier of the blood disease. Can we get a sample of
her vitae before we cure her? The more the better.
Personality - Not much known. Loyal to
Jack - last update 4/10/01
Friend to Kansas. Certainly a bit of hero
worship/sycophancy going on there. Kansas probably has some influence over Jack.
Lost a fight to Kansas last week - Kansas got his eye
as a trophy. Alas, Kansas wasn't foolish enough to sell it to us.
Atticus doesn't like him for some particular
reason - dislikes him more than most. Wants him set up as the potential fall-guy
for if Larry's security system gets detected and traced. Rebecca is willing to
set up someone as the fall guy, but not Jack until we know more about
Atticus' reasons. After all, Atticus might be trying to arrange matters to
rebound on us.
Personality - noisy, brash, prone to
violence - but can generally 'keep it in his pants'.
Kansas - last update 4/9/01
Curiously enough, we have this man's testicles in the
chantry, which he apparently lost on a bet. Clan Tremere obtained the item with
the intention of returning it to him, only to be told that he didn't want them
back. Indicates a certain recklessness and probable lack of knowledge about our
Rumor has it that he's not too happy with his fellow
Brujah, considering them to be too tame.
Some preliminary research about Kansas has yielded the
following from Topeka: Apparently Kansas is as close to an Anarch as a Brujah
can be, without actually leaving the Camarilla. What joy, we seem to have a
potential loose cannon and scapegoat in one neat package.
Personality - approachable, somewhat
raucous. Claims to enjoy barfighting as a hobby. Definite streak of the
daredevil in this one.
Kat - last update 4/3/01
Seemingly close to the Prince, but that opinon is based
solely upon observation - not confirmed.
Apparently Irons is trying to convince her that the
Tremere/Toreador/Nosferatu coterie considers her an enemy because she has been
seen talking to Irons. I think we need to work on disabusing her of that notion.
She might not be an ally to us, but we don't need her allying with Irons out of
Personality - not known.
Rogue - last update 4/9/01
Apparently delusional, taking on the persona of a
comic-book character, although she is trying to build a new identity for
herself. Rebecca has obtained a copy of her diaries and dream-journal and has
sent them to a Tremere specializing in psychoanalysis. Updates pending. Context
of delusions might prove exploitable.
Rogue was Enthralled to Malcolm, of Clan Gangrel -
proves her susceptibility to either threats or romance. Probably romance (see
Rogue is romantically interested in Christian DeMedici.
The relationship is in early stages as of 4/01. Definite vulnerability to
Willing to accept help from Clan
Tremere, providing it apparently comes through Rebecca or Saren. She has
vocalized a lack of trust in Jean Paul Boudroux.
Member of a coterie compromising Christian DiMedici,
Cassandra (Digg's Last Word) and Rebecca Logsdon.
Very much "My Prince Right or Wrong". Should
we need to remove Gideon by violence, she must be off-site. However, once the
replacement is in power, she will support him with the minimum of grumbling.
Rebecca has a copy of her diaries. They strongly
suggest that Rogue is a personality that has been imposed upon her against her
will - possibly by her Sire. Hopefully, a trained psychiatrist (Tremere, of
course) can separate memory from symbolism in this woman's dreams. She very much
wants peace - one way or the other - and if we can provide that, she will be in
Personality - Another relatively relaxed and
rational Brujah. Willing to listen to reason. Emotional and prone to
melancholia. Aside from the matter of her displaced identity, no known foibles.
Sarah - last update 4/8/01
This lady is the one who obtained Kansas' testicles in
the first place and then sold them to Clan Tremere.
Accorded the status Honorable by Kansas - seconded by
Kat. The Brujah will have their little jokes.
According to Saren, Sarah seems 'very attached' to Kat.
Possible enthrallment? Or just dedicated upsucking?
- Brash, headstrong, 'don't fuck with me'. Obviously carrying the usual
burden of pride that hampers Brujah.
Larry - last update, 4/8/01
Self-styled software whiz. Not much knowledge about
computer hardware, but willing to learn.
Addenda: Larry has a hobby of building robots -
and he's proud enough of them to want to show them publicly. A streak of vanity
is always a good thing to know about.
Currently under protection of Clan Nosferatu, but
Atticus has made it clear that if Larry fucks up, they will disavow him. Of
course, the clan is ready to reap any credit for advancements made by him.
Working on developing software for a kindred
tracking/security system using IR cameras, video identification and a lot of
processors. Research is being underwritten by the Tremere clan, with the
explicit condition that we get to use this system, once it's developed. Larry is
expected to give a full accounting for funds received so far - $20,000 - by the
end of April.
Clearly vulnerable to blandishments, as is any Caitiff.
Personality - Somewhat shy and withdrawn.
A touch of autism, perhaps? However, he is facile enough when discussing his
areas of expertise.
Gideon - last update, 4/3/01
Prince of Sausalito.
Obtained the throne by dint of physical combat. Diggs
was his primary rival.
Context suggests that he must be insecure in his
position and will probably overcompensate when faced with conflict.
Personality - Not known.
Anonymous - last update, 4/3/01
Harpy of the court.
Seems to enjoy her job and takes it seriously.
Owes a major boon to Rebecca, in return for her
dropping her case against Dex/Jason for inflicting Dementation upon her.
Personality - somewhat serious and
solemn, but given to flashes of humor. Outwardly rational. Specific dementia
"Bob" - last update, 4/9/01
Regressive, but usually coherent. Was given to carrying
a stuffed toy with her, a purple cat named 'Calvin' which she insisted was a
First approximation suggests that Bob is far more
coherent and perceptive than she presents herself to be. She needs to be
Recently hired Saren as a bodyguard. With luck, this
will provide opportunities for eavesdropping on her affairs.
The possibility that Bob is far more perceptive than
believed is gaining credence. Saren believes this is so, after working with her
for only a few days.
Has lately taken to doom-saying, but in public places.
We should speak with her and learn more about what she is perceiving, but only
under circumstances where the Masquerade is not at stake.
Tends to go into a minor fugue when prophesying. Saren
is capitalizing on their budding friendship to encourage Bob to share all of
these insights with her. Bob is apparently eager to be heard.
Personality - publicly, childish and
disassociated. She's very open about feelings, as she thinks there's no reason
to hide them. Privately, who knows? Specific dementia unknown.
Dex/Jason - last update, 4/3/01
Unable to exert control over his use of
Dementation. Conversation with him carries a high risk of being affected - see
Rebecca's incident report for further details.
Suffers a split personality. Jason speaks with a
British accent and doesn't realize he is a vampire - although during Rebecca's
encounter with him, she quickly outlined the basics of being a kindred and told
him he was one too. It will be interesting to see if that information is
retained through the presence of his other personality. Jason is, of course,
unaware of his mental state.
Jason described himself as an independently wealthy
dot-commer/investment banker who lives on a yacht and sails around the world. We
should determine how much of this is based on fact.
Second personality is Dex. He speaks with an American
accent and is aware that he is Kindred. Unknown if Dex is aware of Jason or
Split personality is often the result of severe
childhood trauma. Rebecca suggests that we might want to look into this man's
past and determine what that trauma was. Such research could also yield clues as
to what triggers his personality changeovers and perhaps even why he cannot
control his Discipline. If the latter situation can be 'fixed' by Clan Tremere,
Rebecca believes that we could have several Malkavians in our debt.
Personality - Both personas are
reasonably friendly and emotionally well-balanced, but that is probably untrue
when under stress.
"Queen Elizabeth" - last update, 4/3/01
???, suspect neonate
Given to impersonate royalty - not sure how deeply
the delusion is rooted, or if it is just a game on her part.
Personality - approachable, but
mercurical. Flattery will no-doubt have the desired effect. Specific dementia
unknown - meglomania, perhaps?
Atticus - last update 4/3/01
Goes about court heavily masked and his vocal cords
are obviously traumatized. Does this man not know how to fully utilize
Obfuscate? Or does he choose not to?
Claims to have some connections to the Marin General
Hospital, and the police, also.
Part of a coterie consisting of the elders of clans
Tremere, Toreador and Nosferatu (not publicly known)
Personality - unknown.
Paron - last update 4/9/01
Young and proud - pride means he is susceptible to
Ambitious in that Nosferatu way - in that he's very
keen to cut deals and get to know everyone. Also very exploitable.
Very keen on working with Jason (the Toreador Coroner)
and dealing with the blood disease.
Personality - quite social, for a
Nosferatu. Extremely inquisitive, bordering on brash. Somewhat arrogant and
oversure of his knowledge on any given subject.
Phillipe DeChevallier - last update 4/3/01
Clearly a 'face man' for the clan.
Had some disagreement with Jean-Paul Boudroux in the
past, but is willing to deal with the clan, despite that.
Personality - Dress and manners are
slightly anachronistic. Apparently still rather nationalistic in temprament,
Thomas Wu - last update 4/3/01
Ally to Trent of Clan Ventrue.
Alexandria Dumas - last update 4/9/01
Dislikes Rogue vehemently for some unspecified
Not entirely in touch with her clan - does not know
what Madera's method of expression is. Shows some reluctance to contribute to an
upcoming art event being sponsored by Rebecca and Marc Julius. Rebecca will be
pointing out these little failings to our court Harpy.
Is part of a coterie compromised of the elders of the
Toreador, Nosferatu and Tremere clans (coterie not publicly known)
Not above diverting credit in favor of her clan - she
is conveniently forgetting Rebecca's involvement in an upcoming art show.
Possiblity to consider: is she burning out?
Knows a lot about the garou. Lives near Mt. Tamalpais
and claims that they let her live there because she respects them.
May be trying to alleviate ennui by stirring things up
in court, just for it's own sake. Be very careful when dealing with this woman.
If she is burning out, she's going to be dangerous - as she will believe
she has nothing left to lose.
Personality - Clearly a social lioness -
or so she hopes. Apparently sincere and outgoing while at court, but her
posturing behavior at our mutual hangout betrays her ego. Apparently embodies
the stereotypical strengths and weaknesses of her clan.
Jason - last update 4/9/01
Medical Examiner for Marin County
Regardless of how this chap manages to avoid daytime
court-dates and crime scenes, he could be a very useful tool for the clan. He
has connections with both the medical and law-enforcement communities.
Unknown what his art form is. Given his profession, one
suspects it might be unpleasant.
Has offered to consider hiring Rebecca as an
'assistant' - might be a useful conduit for information for the clan.
Personality - somewhat pompous, given to
lecturing when the opportunity arises. Will interrupt conversation when
enthusiastic. Unwilling to consider alternative ideas not originating from
himself. But intelligent and apparently humane.
Madera Lea - last update 4/8/01
Assistant to the Keeper of Elysium.
A painter, or so she claims. Has been asked to
contribute to an upcoming show.
Romantically interested in Christian DeMedici.
Emotional vulnerability probably exploitable. Susceptible to flattery - as noted
by Rebecca. Possible rivalry with Rogue could be interesting...
Possible 'crush' on Marc Julius - although it may just
be a case of hero-worship. Either way, she solicits and heeds his advice.
In a coterie with Christian, Rogue, Rebecca and
Personality - somewhat shy and diffident,
but possessed of a certain naive enthusiasm about kindred society.
Marc Julius aka "The Rose" - last update 4/8/01
Another 'face man'.
Has promised Rebecca a tour of territory's hot
spots and beautiful hangouts, which will hopefully give the Tremere a clue about
his feeding grounds, prey preferences and preferred hangouts. May be susceptible
to seduction by another kindred.
A patron of the arts. Unknown if he produces anything.
Has some influence over Madera Lea (attributed with
encouraging her to apply for an Asst. Keeper position).
Personality - outgoing and a little oily,
but quite perceptive. Don't let the smarm fool you. Again, vulnerable to
flattery but (Rebecca thinks) perhaps a little more aware of its duplicity than
others in his clan.
Michael - last updated 4/9/01
Writer. Might these be "Steven", below?
Rebecca is willing to admit she might have slipped.
Saren is cultivating this one, talking to him about
opening up a bookstore with him, etc.
Savannah - last updated 4/9/01
Court Harpy - pro tem until Anonymous returns.
An actress and, according to her clan, a good one.
Worringly pretty. Too many men in this court seem to
still suffer the weaknesses of the flesh. If she has that same vulnerability, I
suppose we could set Aaron to charming her.
Very new in her position, might need some
propping up. Rebecca had a good relationship with Anonymous, she'll try to build
the same with Savannah.
Personality - unknown.
Steven - last updated 4/3/01
Author of fiction and non-fiction. Has published
several novels that have received middling to good reviews, with sales figures
to match. Memo: must learn more about his publisher and how he communicates with
them and - if he has one - his agent.
Personality - somewhat diffident when
around his superiors, otherwise reasonably confident and outgoing. Somewhat
humble about his talent, but this might be false modesty.
Avery Irons - last update 4/9/01
A 'problem solver' sent by the Ventrue Clan.
Apparently the 'problem' is the fact of a Gangrel neonate on the throne.
It is supposed that Mr. Irons is going to try to
dislodge Gideon and put another on the throne - possibly Caroline.
Christian does not like him, but the dislike seems to
have been inspired by Mr. Iron's personality, rather than through his deeds.
Irons clearly broke Elysium on the meeting of 4/8 but
since the victim of his ire - Kansas - refused to be upset about it, not much
was done. Rebecca suspects that Irons might also have enough sway with the
Prince to get away with his blatant disregard for the Traditions.
Irons is trying to provoke the lupine. He has ordered
Christian to buy land in undeveloped areas and aggressively industrialize it.
Christian doesn't want to do this, but he also doesn't want to disobey a clan
member. If, however, the land were to be bought by a 3rd party and held in
irrevocable trust, Christian will have an excuse (albeit a bit flimsy) and we
won't have furious lupine raging through court again.
Personality - Clearly driven
and aggressive. Cavalier attitude towards the traditions of the court suggest
Caroline Stewart - last update 4/3/01
Neonate? Maybe ancilla.
Lawyer, practicing in both human and kindred circles.
Claims she likes to practice "Camarilla Law".
Claims to be on retainer to several kindred in court.
Rebecca is negotiating a priority contract. Even if negotiations fail, this will
give us and idea of what she considers viable currency and how much value she
puts on her time.
Very little social life. Sometimes socializes with her
clients (nb: probably her prey). Says she "takes them out to a bar or
Rather lax attitude towards the Masquerade. Used
several proscribed terms (clan names, etc) during conversation in a public place
with Rebecca. Rebecca is considering how this slip may be used to our advantage.
Seems somewhat unhappy in her role as Primogen
Personality - very proper and toes the
party line. Possible workaholic?
Christian DeMedici - last update 4/3/01
Neonate/ancilla (definition varies)
Keeper of Elysium
Was a ghoul for at least fifty years prior to Embrace -
Was married for a long time (duration of ghoul career?)
but lost his wife in the late 1970s. Still dedicated to her memory - although
his recent involvements with Rogue and Madera may suggest that recovery has
Historian and occultist - particularly interested in
studying the Book of Nod. Has had contact with the Tremere clan in the past
regarding his research. His attitude toward our clan is friendly, but realistic.
Was the driving force behind creating the coterie of
himself, Rebecca, Rogue, Cassandra and Madera.
Aggressively apolitical. Has spent career teaching
Keepers/being a Keeper. More concerned with influence than with direct
power. His apolitical attitude has gone so far that he is trying to remain
uninvolved with Mr. Iron's agenda.
Personality - studious, polite -
aggressive when needed. Slightly anachronistic and occasionally socially inept
(he was rather taken aback by Rogue's forwardness).
Trent Rosethorn - last update 4/3/01
Already in hot water with Christian for telling him
that Christian would have go through Thomas Wu to talk to him when he is away
from court - and that Thomas' time wouldn't come cheap.
As duplicitious as any kindred. Has approached Rebecca
about cooperating with her in an investigation (The Ferry Incident) but his
communiques to the Ventrue clan (which Christian graciously shared with Rebecca)
indicate his intention to take as much credit as possible, as well as a
fundamental lack of trust in our clan. Example: he has stated that he will be
asking a Toreador to accompany him when examining the ferry (something Rebecca
and Jean Paul have volunteered to do, providing Trent can get access) so that he
will know if the Tremere withhold information.
Distrust, however, can be exploited.
Christian has made it clear that he will not object
if Trent's reputation is quietly trashed. Rebecca has agreed to cooperate,
Personality - Confident and
aggressive. Occasionally rash. Hungry for approval and status.
