Founded by Christian Hendriksen, one of the original founders of New Amsterdam, when he was turned into a Black Court shortly after coming to the Americas. Hendriksen killed his creator, and began to slowly create his own scourge, until he was locked away by a group of Lenape Shamans and Dutch Wizards (White Council Wardens), in a cave sacred to the Lenape and residing above the crossing of 4 major ley lines on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. There he rested, imprisoned, until an ambitious developer, Gilbert Radburn, broke into the cave in search of Lenape Artifacts of power which would give him immortality. Radburn was defeated by mortal authorities, the artifacts confiscated, but the resulting earthquake and explosion from the conflict, freed Hendriksen and his Scourge from their captivity.
Knowing their position to be a dangerous one, Hendriksen led his followers quickly into the warren of tunnels beneath New York, and began establishing his presence within “The City Beneath The City”. Shortly afterwards, he discovered the Wellspring of Dark Power that was created by the events of 9/11, and has began to carefully tap into its reservoir of power.
Hendriksen has kept his forces out of the Vampire War, having little interest in anything which will distract him from seeking vengeance on the descendants of those who imprisoned him as well as those who took New Amsterdam from his beloved Holland.
