From the ancient city of Babylon, a brood of kindred were chosen for various purposes. They march thru history and time, changing the world with each passing step. Assisted from the shadows by the ancient God of Wisdom, this coeterie awakens and thrives in the most influential epochs of each age. As with all kindred, they are eternal, and they are masters of the Mortal populace. From the shadows they rule, and as each age passes they grow in strength and influence. Are there none who exist who can contend with these most ancient Lords of the Night?
