Ruler and Consort


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTION OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

There may or may not be a sexual relationship between the Ruler and his or her Consort, but these two Old Vampires have to work together to preserve Old Vampire society in Britain.

A rule agreed by the Ruler and her or his Consort is automatically law.  It will then be passed on to the Status Keeper, who makes sure that all Old Vampires know about the new law.

Any Old Vampires who are out of the country will first contact the Status Keeper when they return so they are fully up-to-date and their names re-appear on the Status Roll.

The Status Keeper will then update them on anything that has happened in their absence.

Rulers preside over fences.  If there is a draw, they have to decide what happens or if the vampires are stupid enough not to abide by the outcome of said fence.  They also preside over their court and rule Society, which is of course made up of Old Vampires.

When I was appointed to The Committee I was summoned to the Ruler’s presence and informed of my appointment.

What the Ruler and her or his Consort do in or out of bed is between them.  Unlike humans, we do not follow every single detail of our equivalent of your so-called celebrities.

A ruler has not been unseated for a long while because scandal made her or his position untenable.  However Rulers do not get to be Rulers without an in-built talent for machination, politics and cover-up.

What matters is that the Ruler and her or his Consort “unite for the betterment of Old Vampires in Britain”.

The current Ruler and Consort seem to be united.  Probably the unity is only in staying in top of the castle, as there are always people looking to better themselves.
