Royaume des Morts
The Rat Catcher Guild
One of several autarkis groups forming in the Courts of Love, Baronies of Avalon, and the Fiefs of the Black Cross, the Rat Catcher Guild was originally formed by disaffected neonates of different clans who had been sired specifically to carry out a military action against their new sire's enemies. Most of them were thrown at the enemy with no idea what was happening to them, and they were completely expendable. They organized themselves discreetly, and now they play a long game of taking the night back from their hated elders. Some members, however, do not wish to wait, and coteries dedicated to diablerizing the elders use this group as they move throughout Western Europe in search of easy prey. Any neonate may join if he or she is sponsored by a current member, but there is always a test to ensure the initiate's loyalty.
