Forming The Hunters


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

All non-human Representatives on The Committee are kept busy forming The Hunters.

The only exception is Darren, the New Vampire Representative, as The Hunters were originally only New Vampires.

It is easy to find Old Vampires who despise criminals and want to bring them in.  It is difficult to find those who will work with Werewolves and New Vampires.  I cannot blame them.

An Old Vampire will not take orders from a Werewolf or New Vampire; the same goes for the other two.

Thankfully The Ruler’s Men have given me several dossiers on Old Vampires that have proved useful in persuading them to become Hunters.

I have spoken to Terry, the butler at my club, who turned up with five Old Vampire servants who, for reasons best kept confidential, will become Hunters.

We Representatives have decided that The Hunters will be headed by the best of all three non-humans.

This means that one cannot take a decision without agreement from at least one of the others.

It is obvious to me that unfortunately Old Vampires will have to work with Werewolves or New Vampires from time to time; they will have to decide how best to work with other non-humans as I have had.

It has been decided that The Hunters will do no other job.  This means that there will often be times when there is nothing to do and they will be free to pursue their own interests.

Apparently, the New Vampires’ countenances brightened when they heard this.  The Old Vampires just nodded; every Old Vampire has times when there is nothing to do and they relax and pick up hobbies.

Who heads the Old Vampires will be decided by a Fence, usually only used for disputes.
