They have a small chapter in the city, going for quality over quantity, there is currently two elders, two ancilla and likely a neonate added the Prince is allowing Elders to each make one neonate and a few others such as the Sheriff an Ancilla. He is working to reinforce and add to the cities overall Kindred population due to an increasing population. Simply put they need more Kindred to help run and protect things in the city. So there is a rare opportunity for a smart Coterie to make their mark as a group.
Current threats include the Anarchs who are around, the Sabbat has been sending small young packs into the region and some werewolves are around.
Note this will be historically run so if you have issues with period racism and discrimination you might not want to play this and is only going to be used for the setting, my views are not the game setting views.
