Tremere Tracking

Apollo had thought long and hard about Team Tremere... or Team Anti-Tremere whatever you wanted to call it. He had asked Firinn to do the preliminary research on the area. He could have done the research himself and it would have been good. Firinn however was always going to do a better job than him at this sort of thing.

He had invited along Apollo, Firinn, Billy Martin, Blackstone, Ronin & Dragonfly. It meant two cars and a potentially a hefty hotel bill but it would be worth it if they were successful.

He had set up a meeting in room 304 of the Empire Hotel. The bed had been kindly removed by the staff and a table and chairs had been added. Apollo waited patiently for his guests to arrive.

Dragonfly was the first to arrive, a backpack over his shoulder and a Booster Juice smoothie in his hand.

"Alright not late. Go me."

Next to arrive was Ronin, who calmly inspected the room and then silently took a seat. She left a carrying case next to her seat and greeted both Apollo and Dragonfly with polite nods.

"There is nothing wrong with that." The voice was followed less than a second later by the form of the Guardian.

"By the way if something come up in the City while we are gone I will have to BAMF back to New York." That was the problem with three Sentinels looking into the same thing.

Last but not least, and just behind Billy Martin, was the other mystagogue on the operation. The Mastigos entered the room with a leather bag in her right hand and sat down at the table, placing the case in front of her and beginning to pull out a folder from inside of it.

Apollo nodded, he had thought that would be the case. "Hopefully we manage to do this quickly and quietly." he smiled.

"I trust you are all okay with what we are going to be doing?"

Apollo's question was met with a series of nods from those around the table.

"Alright the basics first." She opened the case and pulled out a file, which she carefully placed on the table. "Rifleman's account of increased Tremere activity during the Second World War was spot on, Mysterium records confirm that fifty-five known Tremere were killed by various sources including Pentacle forces, Seers of the Throne, hunters and other supernaturals between January 1 1937 and January 1 1947. That is the highest amount of Tremere activity to be reported since the Thirty Years War. Rifleman's more personal accounts also check out, he was part of a Cabal called "X-Company" that advanced into Europe with the 1st Canadian, 2nd British, 1st US and 9th US field armies. There were over twenty members of the group, from all five Pentacle Orders, and they accounted for eleven of the eliminated Tremere. Rifleman was personally credited with two of those kills." That Mastigos paused and glanced around at the faces in the room.

"The last known case of a Tremere near the Empire Consilium was in 1934 when two were caught in the Bronx by the Guardians and eliminated. The last case reported nearby was 1992 in Washington D.C., the Free Council found and eliminated one. The last case reported in the United States or Canada was five years ago in the no man's land between the Bay Area and Sacramento, with the Pentacle and the Seers both eliminating one each." The Northern California War. The bloody battle between the San Francisco Consilium and the Inland Tetrarchy.

Information about the Tremere is difficult to locate and separating fact from fiction is another potentially frustrating task. What I know for sure is this: It is a Legacy, a Left Handed Legacy and it works under slightly different principals than most other Legacies of both the Right and Left paths. Instead of crafting the soul of the Mage who accepts the Legacy becoming a Tremere destroys it. How I do not know but their original soul is no more after the activation of the Legacy. They can still cast magic however and suffer none of the usual effects of Soul Loss, although there is a unique condition of rapid aging. In order to stop that a stolen soul, sleeper or Awakened, is attached to the Tremere." She pulled out a bottle of water and took a sip.

"Their first attainment gives them the power to see the health of souls, sever the soul of a sleeper and to have a soul attached, or bound, to them. The binding of a soul is usually reserved for the second attainment, there are rumours in various sources that it can be done via a ritual but the same sources say that the ritual is rarely taught in order to maintain control over apprentices. That way a second attainment Tremere can keep their minions in line until they are powerful enough to begin their own twisted group." She shook her head. "Souls are consumed to extend the life of the Tremere but the age of the Tremere is a factor in how long a sleeper soul will last. The older the Tremere the more often they will require a new soul. At the third attainment a Tremere becomes able to sever an Awakened soul."

"Age is difficult to guess with the Tremere but I would use the term "experienced", they covered their tracks well and honestly it was bad luck for them that put us on the case. This was not their first or probably even their second soul taking. If I was to guess, based on the gap between the two victims, I would say a few years short of one hundred and for a power level I would say second attainment."

"Yay" it wasn't the I am excited kind of Yay, it was the classic sarcastic kind of Yay. "I have booked us all in at a hotel down there just in-case we need to stay a couple of nights. Using fake Identity's of course. Everyone is sharing a room, safety first and all that." He waited to see if anyone objected.

Nobody objected to sharing a room.

"So cold trail and experienced Tremere if you're right, a night in Jersey if you're wrong. So ah I'm invoicing the Consilium for Hazard Pay on this one." Blackstone smirked.

Due to the number of people there was a split in the cars, since two were required. Blackstone, Billy Martin and Ronin went in one, leaving Apollo, Firinn and Dragonfly in the other.

Dragonfly, due to bringing the most luggage (two bags on an overnight trip), was cast into the back seat of the vehicle with his stuff.
