New Vampires


If there is one thing that bothers me above all others it is New Vampires.

Queries from other Old Vampires about New Vampires are a nuisance which make me work and can be a huge problem.

If they are handled badly New and Old Vampires will end up fighting one another on the streets.

If this happens, we have contingency plans to contain it and deal with anyone who saw it.

If we miss anyone who sees it they will go on the internet and talk about it, but there are already all sorts of impossible things witnessed by humans on the internet.

Old Vampires accept my authority, as I have been appointed by The Ruler and know more about humans than most Old Vampires.

I have found that Nosferatu, who is the New Vampire representative on The Committee, has no real power, not even with other New Vampires who often do not obey him.

I have so far been unable to find out who does have power among them.  Someone must have, or they would not have a member on The Committee.

It is no good asking Nosferatu; he would fly into a rage and deny everything, which is a very useful diversion for him.

I have a file with numerous complaints about New Vampires; it is rare that I do not get one or two per week.

Some of them are from people who would complain to me if there was a particle of dust in their bedroom.

Nine times out of ten there is nothing behind these complaints, but they have to be investigated because the tenth time will be a real grievance.

Unfortunately this means that I have to work with Nosferatu to achieve a solution.  This requires all my reserves of willpower and diplomacy and often takes a long time.
