Severing Obligations


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

Obligations can be severed by either Obligatee or Obligator in various ways.

The Obligatee can pay off the Obligation.  An Obligation does not necessarily come about from a monetary debt, but it can always be paid off if you have enough money.

An Obligation can also be severed if the situation which creates the Obligation no longer exists.

For example, Old Vampire A blackmails Old Vampire B into an Obligation over secret funds he doesn’t want Old Vampire C finding out about.  Fifty years later Old Vampire C finds out, so the Obligation is then severed.

An Obligator will only sever an Obligation without being paid off or the Obligation no longer existing if the Obligatee is of no use to her or him.

This could be if the Obligatee’s Status has dropped below zero, or too many people know that X is an Obligatee.

If people know that a certain person is an Obligatee, they will be careful what they say to her or him and start guarding her or his papers when she or he is around.

It can take centuries for everyone to know that someone is an Obligatee, as the people who know people are Obligatees will only pass that information on if they receive money and/or information in return, otherwise there is no point.

Since Obligatees are mainly used for the trafficking of information, if everyone knows that someone is an Obligatee then they are of no use and the Obligation will be severed.

The only thing an Obligatee cannot be used for is sex.  We have one Old Vampire in prison who did this.  When he comes out we will arrange it so The Hunters will be waiting for him.  His Status has already been set below zero, as such Old Vampires are not People.
