Child witch?
A richness of spells in me
At night I hear them surge
more caress in their vengeful whispers
than any mild salvation
This was my river rushing and wild
but mine to hold, as much me as
hair and hands, though then I had
no body.
Then earth claimed me, mirrors had meaning
and pain overtook me at a gallop.
I knew what I could do
and what would follow
hid the alter inside
and started my war to be good.
-- Annette O'Grady

The form of a demon with an angels soul, or at least that is what they would like us to believe. One of the greatest modern enigmas of the Kindred, the Fallen Angels have grown to the size of a small clan in less than a single decade. They are now poised to claim full clan status in the vampiric world, a feat that has not been achieved for nearly one thousand years. They are not as new as they seem however...

Chapter One: The Rising Force

The Known History of the Fallen Angels

In the first months of 1982 a lone kindred of strange appearance was rescued by a Gangrel from a group of fomori in Seattle. He had no idea of where or who he was. Over the next few months he regained some of his memories. Luke (for that is what he had been called by Luna, the Gangrel) was accepted as a Caitiff and soon became a member of the Primogen of the city.

By 1986 Luke had created several childe and had begun to call them the Fallen Angels. This name was derived from their unique appearance, for each had golden eyes, and a set of bat wings growing from their backs. Using the power he had gained from his position among Seattle's primogen, Luke managed to send several of his childer and grand childer out into the world. In the next four years they quickly spread across the North American continent, growing at an almost unbelievable rate, largely due to the popularity of Vampire movies during the mid 80's. The bloodline's rapid growth caused great concern amongst the American Camarilla. Several investigations were launched into the bloodline, but none was able to find any evidence to suggest that the Angels had broken any of the traditions or rules of the Camarilla. Furthermore their beauty and youth have tended to make older vampires ignore any potential threat they may pose.

Two interesting events happened during this time. The first occurred in 1988 when a group of three angels entered Oklahoma City. The Tremere prince of that city took an instant dislike to the three and ordered a bloodhunt (although he had no legal grounds to do so). The three perished before the end of the night, but by the following evening the Prince, Primogen, and majority of the kindred population of the city were dead. Rumours spread across the United States claiming that an attack force of Angels had assaulted the city, however none of the known Angels were absent from their home cities during this time. Quiet voices point out that Prince Albert's favourite emerald ring was seen gracing the hand of Oklahoma City's Inconnu Monitor the night after the disappearances.

The second incident happened on New Years Day, 1990, on the outskirts of Miami. A lone Angel was seen to be being escorted by a flock of 8 Gargoyles through territory still held by the Minions of Set. The Angel passed without incident through the territory, and has been seen several times since (although without his bodyguard).

In early 1991 the Angels again spread. Luke departed Seattle for Australia, and individual Angels were seen in Asia, Australia, and South America with increasing frequency. By 1994 there were Angel princes on all four continents, and they were entrenched in the Camarilla's power structure, although they have yet to reach Europe or Africa (as far as anyone knows).

The True History of the Fallen Angels

The known history of the Fallen Angels is largely correct except for a few (not particularly minor) points. The bloodlines origins are not as clouded as is believed and the Clan hierarchy is fully aware of its origins. Luke's sire, Marcus, was a Pander of the Sabbat; however, he had only a single sire (in contrast to most Panders). This Kindred was named Sebastion and he was one of the few surviving members of the Salubri Clan. He was destroyed not long after he embraced Marcus.

Luke in turn destroyed his own sire (who was a diabolist) before fleeing the Sabbat. Apart from the Fallen Angels themselves one other group is aware of the bloodline's true origin. The Inconnu have sworn to protect all the surviving Salubri and they have included the Fallen Angels in that oath. This serves to explain the incident in Oklahoma City with great ease.

Fallen Angels around the world

North America
The majority of Angels are still found in North America. Fallen Angels are found in almost half the Camarilla cities of the continent. Several members of this bloodline have become Princes in the last five years.
South America
Far fewer members of the bloodline are found here than in the north; however there are two Angel princes on the continent as well as several other powerful members of the bloodline.
Western Kindred have historically had problems in setting up bases of operation in Asia. The Fallen Angels have had some success, most notably in Macao, but also in Japan were they appear to have come to an agreement with the Gaki clans that rule the nation.
The new centre of the Bloodline, and current residence of the clan founder, Australia has become second only to North America in terms of Angel population. At present only Sydney has an Angel prince, and the current large scale turmoil on the continent makes it difficult to predict the lines future status here.
One of the greatest enigmas of the line. The presence of at least one Fallen Angel on the frozen continent has not as yet been explained.

Chapter Two: The Life of the Fallen

"Eat to live, not live to eat."
-- Moliere

The Fallen Angels maintain a rather rigid lifestyle. They value loyalty to the group above almost everything else. They also have something of a unique view of the world.

All members of the clan (as they term the bloodline) are male (except the antitribu described later), and the least attractive amongst them is as attractive as a supermodel. This is not to say that they particularly care about their appearance, or that they select individuals for embrace on their looks alone. On the contrary, when a new Angel is embraced they have Vicissitude performed upon them to achieve their maximum beauty. They are chosen for their strength of character. The Angels have found their looks highly useful, especially as others tend to underestimate them.

Many members of the bloodline were Homosexual or Bisexual in life, although the changed circumstances of undeath makes such distinctions largely mute. The clan has developed a strong, simple, ranking system that allows all clan members to easily determine relative positions between clan members.

The Hierarchy of the Clan.

The Fallen Angels have a very defined status system within their bloodline. Each member of the Clan has a title that serves to fix their exact position within the clan hierarchy. These are:

This rank equates roughly to neonate, however since the entire bloodline is so young, new recruits are only considered Fledglings for a year before rising to the next rung on the ladder.
This rank holds the same respect as that of Ancillae in the greater Kindred community. All members over one year old hold this rank until they gain a position of greater authority.
The most powerful Dove in each city is given the title Hawk. He is the recognised leader (not ruler) of all Angels within his city.
Royal Hawks:
These Angels are Hawks who also hold the position of Prince within a city. Royal Hawks hold the same power as Hawks within the clan.
There are currently five Eagles. Each is the Leader and nominal Ruler of all Angels on a given continent. At present there are Eagles for Asia, Australia, North America, South America, and (inexplicably) Antarctica.
There is but one Phoenix: Luke, founder and supreme head of the Fallen Angels. He acts as Ruler, Pope, and Judge for all Angels, and can appoint individuals to any position in the clan Hierarchy.
The single Roc is appointed by Luke and serves as the Angels Justicar-without-office. When the Bloodline achieves full status within the Camarilla the Roc will serve amongst the other Justicars. The Roc is considered to be equivalent to an Eagle.
This rank is equivalent to that of Archon. The Falcons serve as helpers to the Roc. Falcons are held to be equivalent to Hawks.

Badge of Rank: The Whip of Angels

The Whip of Angels is the common weapon of the Fallen Angel Bloodline. The whip is as much of a status symbol as it is an actual weapon (Not that it is in any way ineffective in that role).

There are five different types of whip . The simplest has only one head, it is capable of causing severe damage to living individuals who have drank from a Vampire. The youngest members (Fledglings) of the Bloodline are given such whips.

The two headed whip which in addition to the powers of the previous whip can cause sever damage to werewolves. It is used by Doves.

The three headed whip is capable of severely injuring vampires as well as the previous groups. It is used by Hawks, Royal Hawks, and Falcons.

The four headed whip issued to Eagles and the Roc is capable of harming spirits and ghosts as well as the previous groups.

Only one five headed whip is in existence and is the property of the Roc. Its powers are unknown to all others although rumours suggest it may have power to destroy demons.

The whips act in a similar way to Sabbat bloodstones -- any of the bloodline's leaders can track any of the whips within their area of duty. This ability is used to track down stolen whips rather than to keep track of members of the bloodline (unnecessary because of the Sanguinus link explained below).

The Traditions of the Fallen Angels

"Like blossoms on slow water, the common funeral
Unrolled its swaddling band, Lapping, Tightening
Till we were braced and bound
Like brothers in a ring"
-- Seamus Heaney

The Fallen Angels maintain a separate set of traditions to the Camarilla (although they do not advertise this fact). The Traditions take the form of edicts passed down from the Phoenix to the rest of the Clan. They are:

  1. To destroy another of the blood is the greatest sin. Suffer not a diabolist to live.
    The Fallen angels hold diablerie as the greatest sin. They mercilessly hunt diablerists regardless of the local laws. No Angel would ever engage in this practice himself.
  2. Honour your leaders for they guide your path.
    An edict to strengthen the rank system of the clan.
  3. Honour each other's territory.
    Angels may travel freely through each others territory but they usually maintain the formality of asking first.
  4. Do not appear as a false god.
    Many Angels possess True Faith. Appearing as a god would both go against this and endanger the Masquerade.
  5. Honour those of the blood who deserve such honour.
    Angels judge other Kindred on their individual nature more than their clan.
  6. Teach your childe all the traditions and ways.
    It is important that these traditions are passed on due to the high growth rate of the clan.
  7. Do not create childe from the young, elderly, female, diseased, or insane.
    The Angels choose only healthy males to become Kindred. At one stage they embraced a number of AIDS sufferers but they spread the disease when they feed and were still killed by the disease.
  8. Drink not the blood of your brothers or cousins.
    Angels are forbidden from drinking the blood of other kindred, regardless of clan.
  9. Aid your brother, your ally, and your fathers friends.
    Father's friends refers to the allies of the clan (described latter).
  10. Do not trust a Tremere.
    The experience in Oklahoma City has made the Fallen Angels somewhat wary however they have come to trust a few individual members of the Tremere line.
  11. Obey the Traditions of the Camarilla except were they conflict with these traditions.
    In order to calm the fears of some members of the Camarilla Luke promised to order the bloodline to obey the sects traditions.
  12. Do not traffic with demons or their children.
    Fallen Angels have recently discovered the existence of the Baali. They have determined to destroy these demon-spawned Kindred.

The Grand Goal

The Grand Goal is what the clan is constantly moving towards. As far as others are aware, the Goal is to achieve full clan status within the Camarilla. This is only partially correct. Secretly the Clan works towards unifying all the Vampire clans (with the exception of the Baali) into a new sect. This new sect would be free of Diabolists and Infernalists and be a fellowship of brothers. It is obvious why this is called the grand goal. Towards this aim Fallen Angels make friends within all bloodlines (except Baali). They also create kindred from the blood of others (captured and 'convicted' diabolists) who they are raising in secret. No one outside of the clan knows of this part of the plan.

Chapter Three: To be an Angel

The Angels stand out in the world of vampires, not the least because of there 'unique' appearance. Most people will notice that an Angel has golden eyes and large (usually bat-shaped) wings growing from his back; that is they do if the Angel lets them.

On the Clan weakness

Apart from their unique appearance the Angels have one notable weakness, they are incapable of feeding from women. The reason for this is unknown, although it is suspected to be caused by a psychological hang-up of the clan founder.

The weakness caries over into combat. Angels will be unwilling to attack women (including female Werewolves, Vampires, and Witches) however, they will engage such individuals in combat if absolutely necessary.

Views on Others

Unlike most other groups, the Angels tend to make friends and enemies through individual character rather than group loyalty. Another vampire is judged on her character and deeds, not who her clan founder was. The exception to this rule is the Tremere, who are always distrusted until they prove otherwise (others are treated neutrally).

The Allies
Several groups are allied as a whole to the Fallen Angels, although the terms of the Alliances vary from group to group.
The Elders still feel guilt for the loss of the Angels ancestor's the Salubri. They have sworn to defend the Angels if need be but are otherwise fairly aloof. Rumour suggests that Luke has been invited to join the circle of elders (despite his young age).
This group has a mutual defence pact with the Fallen Angels, concluded after the incident in Oklahoma City. Each group is pledged to aid the other, primarily in any conflict with the Tremere.
The Gaki
The Fallen Angels have only contacted this group of Asian kindred in the past 2 years. At present there is no formal agreement, but tacit approval for free travel (but not settlement) in each others territory has been granted.
The Created
Vampires created by Angels using the blood of others fall into this group. Each is a true (blood) member of one of the other Vampire Clans, but has been educated by the Angels. At present there are only a small amount of Created, and they are kept hidden in the havens of Hawks and Eagles around the world.

Supernatural Powers of the Fallen

The Fallen Angels possess a range of powers that are not present in other kindred. None of the Angels Disciplines are unique to them; rather they have developed higher level powers not present outside the clan. The Angels Clan Disciplines are Sanguinus, Serpentis, and Visceratika. Most also learn Vicissitude.


Perhaps the most important of the Angels disciplines is Sanguinus. This power provides the Unity Link that binds the clan together. All members of the bloodline have at least basic ability in Sanguinus. The Unity Link allows a limited form of communication through the consciousness to all members of the line. On its simplest level it allows members of the line to easily locate all other members of the line, regardless of distance or circumstance. The link does not allow verbal communication (except it is rumoured, from Luke) but does allow emotional communications. In its most extreme case all Angels (through feeling the pain of their fellow) are instantly aware of the location of one of their number who has been destroyed. The link is so strong that in the one recorded case of an Angel being destroyed by diablerie, the entire line was paralysed by the pain experienced by their fellow.

Following this incident, Luke and the two Monitors (described latter) set up the Virtual Buffer. This buffer re-routs the emotional energies of the Sanguinus Link through the Digital Web at two points, reducing the emotional impact of the link, and allowing Luke to function if such an event were to be repeated. It is also whispered that the buffer could provide some protection if Luke was to go mad.

(Sanguinus was first introduced in White Wolf's The Storytellers Handbook, and its lower levels may be found in that work).


This discipline is traditionally known for its ability to twist and corrupt the souls of others. The Angels have transformed Serpentis, so that while still altering the souls of others, it is in a 'good' direction (at least in theory). Other practitioners of Serpentis may be able to learn some of the greater powers if under the tutelage of an Angel. (members of The Changed for instance).

(Serpentis was first introduced in White Wolf's The Players Guide, and its lower levels can be found in that work)


Visceratika is most known as the Discipline of the Gargoyle's. It provides several powers, most noticeably, the growth of bat-like wings capable of providing flight. Visceratika works for the Angels exactly as it does for the Gargoyles, with one noticeable exception -- the type of wings. For Gargoyles, Visceratika provides increasingly larger batwings; for the Angels this is largely true, however, when an individual achieves a certain level in all the clan disciplines, the wings alter. This has shown up in the hierarchy. The Eagles' wings have been transformed from great leathery bat-wings, to graceful flame-red feathered wings. Luke himself no longer sports bat-wings, instead having huge grey feathered wings growing from his back. Some members of the other Angels groups (detailed below) have altered wings also.

(Visceratika was first introduced in White Wolf's The Storyteller's Guide, its powers are fully described in that work)

The Host of Angels

While the majority of the Fallen Angels are part of the main Clan, there are several smaller groups who (allegedly) serve the Phoenix. These are; the Antitribu, the Furies, the Silicon Angels, the Shadow Angels, and it is rumoured, the Sea Angels.

The Antitribu
"Two legged lioness, tupped by the wolfman"
-- Aeschylus, Oresteia

One of the most puzzling facts about the Fallen Angels is the existence of the antitribu. This group has claimed membership in the Sabbat. It differs in two main ways from the Clan.

First, and most notably, the antitribu is composed entirely of women. The clan weakness seems to be reversed with respect to gender, the antitribu being unable to feed from men. Secondly, the antitribu are partially isolated from the Sanguinus link; they are still (supposedly) connected to Luke but not to the main clan. (An Angel does not feel an Antitribu's pain and vice versa).

The antitribu has its own set of goals. Rumours vary, but the most popular amongst the Clan is that the antitribu are merely Luke's agents within the Sabbat, there to choose who will be saved, to weed out the corrupted, and to collect blood from the Sabbat clans. It is uncertain if this is the case. There are far fewer antitribu than full Clan members. There are no recorded incidents of antitribu and Clan members fighting, although they rarely are seen to co-operate.

Antitribu otherwise possess the same disciplines and abilities as the main clan. They hold whips, and rank much as the clan, and the head of the antitribu is ranked amongst the Eagles.

The Antitribu have honoured the alliances of the clan and almost all the traditions (with the obvious exception that they embrace women not men). In addition they have forged an alliance with the Ahrimanes of the Sabbat, as both are all female groups, and the Ahrimanes do not practise diablerie (unlike most other Sabbat clans).

The Furies

Closer to the Created than the clan in many ways, the Furies are a group of male metis Garou of mixed origin. They serve Luke directly and hold rank (and quite litterally whips) within the clan structure. They are given Vampiric blood to make them stronger, and taught the supernatural powers of the clan. They operate as mobile enforcers for the clan. Their ability to move around during daylight has been found to be highly useful.

There are only a few Furies at present. They all have the powers of both Garou and Ghoul. All possess the bat wings of the Angels, a fact that has served to make them even more outcast from other Garou than their metis status would otherwise have caused. They do not operate amongst the other Garou, staying amidst the world of the Vampires. Most are found serving Angels of Royal Hawk rank and above.

The Silicon Angels
"What a tangled web we weave, when first we pracdtice to decieve."
-- Shakespeare

The young age of the Fallen Angels has given them a great advantage over their older brethren when dealing with technology. This is never so obvious than when dealing with the Silicon Angels.

The Silicon Angels are a very small group (no more than a dozen) of Clan and antitribu members who permanently inhabit the Digital Web. They are lead by two monitors, ranked as Eagles, each of whom guards one of the nexus' (described latter). They monitor much of the so called "information super-highway". The Monitors are responsible for the creation of the Virtual Buffer between Luke and the rest of the Angels.

The Silicon Angels share the Clans disciplines of Sanguinus and Visceratika. They do not, however, possess Serpentis, instead possessing a new discipline -- Technica, that allows them extensive control over machinery.

(Technica, by Deirdre Brooks, was first introduced in White Wolf Magazine #36, its powers are described there)

The Shadow Angels

Another new group of Angels, these wander the lands of the dead. They have been transformed into wraith-like beings, with much similarity to the restless dead, although they are still kindred. Shadow Angels have permanently travelled to the lands of the dead, and cannot return to physical form for more than a short time.

The Shadow Angels share Sanguinus with their siblings, but possess Nihilistics and Obtenebration instead of Serpentis and Visceratika. Many still learn these disciplines (although they are not treated as clan disciplines for them).

(Nihilistics was first introduced in White Wolf's Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand, and its powers are described in that work)

(Obtenebration was first introduced in White Wolf's Player's Guide to the Sabbat, and its powers are described in that work)

The Sea Angels

There is a rumour currently circulating amongst the Angels about so called 'Sea Angels', a new group that is supposedly in the process of being formed. Nothing is known of them yet except that they are to be Luke's agents in the depths of the oceans. It is rumoured that they may appear as merfolk with manta ray wings sprouting from their back. What disciplines they may use are unknown.

The Nexus'

Resting at the juncture of worlds, the Nexus' are the two most important locations held by the Fallen Angels. The Nexus' are locations in the virtual reality of the Digital Web were the Web conjoins with the Sanguinus Link. Here tunnels of light leading into the Link spill out into nodes of the web. These two Nexus' have been nicknamed Heaven and Hell by the Silicon Angels and they appear similar to their namesakes.

The Nexus nicknamed Heaven is a place of light. Here data streams drift lazily through the air, humming rhythmically as they pass. Located in the centre of the nodes' floor is a tunnel; it shines with a slightly greyish light. This tunnel is a physical representation of the Sanguinus Link. It may be entered, and it is theoretically possible to enter the link and affect the minds of the Angels -- each of which appears at the end of one of the tunnels branches as a spectral representation of themselves. At one of the Nexus' far ends is a shimmering portal -- a gateway to the Umbra. M!i7cH7a#@el7 (Michael) of the Silicon Angels guards Heaven and the tunnel to the Sanguinus Link. He also monitors the comings and goings of Angels (and others) through the Umbral portal, although he very rarely opposes such travel. M!i7cH7a#@el7 acts as a buffer between Luke and the male members of the bloodline, filtering out unwanted, or excessively strong emotions, before they can harm the Phoenix.

The other Nexus, Hell, is much like its namesake. Lit by glowing, red-brown walls, smoke-blackened data streams writhe through space, screaming and moaning as they go. A portal, similar to that found in Heaven ruptures through the roof of this nexus-cavern. In the floor, not far from the Sanguinus Tunnel is a deep pit, swirling in utter blackness and chaos, this is a portal that leads straight into the Malkavian Madness Network. 6Lu!6^c6y* (Lucy) of the Silicon Angels guards Hell. Unlike Michael she does not allow anyone outside the clan to enter the Nexus, although she views this as a public service -- you can't have people stumbling into hell after all. 6Lu!6^c6y* also acts as a buffer, this time between female members of the clan and the Phoenix.

The Cost of Power

"This downhill path is easy, but there 's no turning back."
-- Christina Rossetti

The Angels extensive reliance on Sanguinus and Vicissitude may be their downfall. Both disciplines are in reality supernatural diseases which eventually take over their hosts. No known Angels have so far succumbed to the diseases but it may only be a matter of time. At least three members have been driven insane by developing Vicissitude too quickly. These three were 'put down' for their own good, but the incident has caused great concern to the Phoenix. There appears to be no way to remove the diseases, so Luke and the Eagles have been working on ways to control there effects. It is rumoured that the Eagle of Antarctica is looking for a lost mystic artefact located somewhere under the ice. The Shadow Angels, Silicon Angels, and Sea Angels are all also supposed to be participating in this great search.

The Crusade

For now the biggest concern of the clan is the war against diablerie. Clan members keep careful watch out for signs of diablerie and capture those suspected of guilt whenever possible. These prisoners are then taken before an Eagle (or occasionally Roc or Phoenix). If found guilty (which has happened on all but one occasion) mystic powers are used to strip knowledge, and disciplines from the guilty individual. They are then bleed, and staked out in the rising sun. The blood so collected is used to embrace individuals so as to create the seeds of the new sect.

The Viper Within

"Lick, slipped in gore
Lips spreading
Against the weight of flesh
Pressed against the hard desire
To kill with passion
To destroy with greed
To devour all
And at the last to laugh"
-- Holly Darque

While the Angels look strong, such is not the full truth. At least one member of the line has succumbed to the disease and is now a puppet for dark forces. More worryingly, several Baali have managed to infiltrate the clan, some gaining significant positions of power, as yet they have not attempted to corrupt clan members but it is only a matter of time.

Chapter Four: Who's Who Amongst the Fallen Angels

(The following is a series of excepts, taken from the letters of Luna, Great great great grand-childe of Ennoia, to her childe concerning the her knowledge of the Fallen Angels. The correspondences were dated between 1990 and 1995)

Luke is the angel, the father of them all. I used to think he was a likeable, if somewhat annoying, individual. Now I think of him as a likable, somewhat annoying, and very lucky individual who is in way over his head. I still see him on occasion, but each time he seems a little more distant. Still, he's managed to gain the power of an Antedeluvian in 10 years, and he has never commited diablerie... unlike some other nuvo-antedeluvians I won't mention.

I used to get suprised by his actions, but he has achieved the impossible so many times that nothing would shock me. I think the last time I was surprised by him was just before he left for Australia. He came over for a drink, and in mid conversation, a third eye opened in his forehead. Needless to say it has been pretty hard for him to top that (although I wouldn't put it past him).

When I first met him he was young and vibrant; he doesn't look much different, perhaps he's a bit better looking, but he just breathes age. Everything about him speaks of tiredness. I wouldn't be suprised if he slips into torpor within the next ten years.

I've only met Serrina once, she's the head of the antitribu, and quite frankly she scares the hell out of me. She is a member of the Sabbat, which is enough of a reason to avoid her, but she appears loyal to Luke so she shouldn't hurt you. Still there is no need to put the theory to the test. If you ever need help from the Sabbat, she's the one to go to; she has gotten into the sect's upper-echelons. Last I heard of her she was a bishop, or possibly arch-bishop in Mexico City, right at the black heart of things. I've heard a rumour that Serina has a sense of humour, but I don't give it much credit. To get her position in the Sabbat she brought the Regent the fresh heart of Billy Ray Cyprus, for real, she knows some wizards who turned the guy into a zombie and none of his fans have realized. She has been seen in Miami in the guise of the Madonna at some of the death cult parades. I'm glad she doesn't venture over the border much. Unless she's leading one of the Sabbat War Party's. I've Heard she can melt a neonate's organs just by pinning him with a death's head stare.

Report: 95-G-1254/95*25#1256+
Subject: Luna, member of Clan Gangrel
Current Location: Seattle, Washington State
Security Clearance: E/R/M/P - access strictly denied to all other members
Current Risk Status: Low

Text: We have become recently aware of the possible security risk possed by the Gangrel Luna. She has had extensive knowledge of the Clan since its founding. She has, however, shown a reasonable degree of loyalty to the cause. She currently resides in Seattle, serving as the Gangrel Primogen, having replaced her sire as previous Primogen on 14 October 1994. She has shown the Gangrel's typical low interest in obtaining power. Her connections to Kindred and Garou may prove useful at a future date.
Childe: Five known childe, four remain in the Gangrel Clan whilst one has joined the Ahrimane Bloodline in the Sabbat. No further information is available at present.
Known Contacts: Lydia (see 94-To-6589/94*48#5049+), Cyril (see 95-B-6589/95*11#6589-), several other minor kindred (see attachment). She has also had contacts with members of the Stargazer, Silent Strider, and Black Fury Garou tribes. Possible contact with Gurahl is unconfirmed.
Degree of Knowledge: She knows of the clan structures and major personalities, but is unaware of the Grand Goal.
Black Marks: She has had (involuntary) contact with Baali, and Black Spiral Dancers. One of her associates is also a known diablist (see 95-B-6589/95*11#6589-) scheduled for termination.
Termination: No.
Continued Monitoring: Yes. Luna may be worthy to represent her Clan in the New Order.

Angharad is an enigma, she's got an Australian twang, soft though from Melbourne or something. She does tattoos on the eastside, the heart of Fallen Angel territory. The ward glyphs and runes on the biceps all over town are her work; she's legendary round here for licking the blood away.

There are two theories. A) that she's a Sabbat spy, or B) that the rumours are true, the antitribu in Mexico are seekings out the diabolists and Angharad got caught in less than demon behaviour and was smuggled out before they killed her. No point in asking her though, she just smiles over her shoulder and flashes a pearly fang. I don't even know where her haven is. Like I said, Enigma.

Chapter Five: Sample Fallen Angels

(Continuing excepts from the letters of Luna, great great great grand-childe of Ennoia, to here childe, 1990-1995)


Harry watched Lost Boys a few too many times before he was embraced, and he likes to hang out in Movie Theatres. In fact one of his flock friends lets him sleep in the basement of the Electric Shadows Cinema, on the corner of Grand and Bosch. He is renowned among the clan for embracing half his high school friends before his Sire stopped him. Bit of a Loose Canon, but not too many screws loose. Basically he wants to be a Dove forever; he'd rather watch the action on the silver screen than get into any serious dramas of his own.

Alice is fast, strong and lethal as her name sake status, a Hawk. Mind you, she calls herself Shrike after the little bird in Africa that impales its prey on thorns. She's known to venture north of the border, prowling Miami and maintaining the havens for the Succubus on forages. But to have stayed alive suggests she has contacts, the hunting parties Luke has sent out have come back empty handed. Those that do come back that is.

Shadow Angels report directly to Luke; they bypass the Net altogether. I thought they were a myth until I saw one. If I had a heart it would have stopped beating. Blue and purple, they seem like a deepening of the night. They suck light like little kids do candy. This is Orpheus; he travels back and forth from the world of lost souls. There hardly seems a point; Shadow Angels reek of hopelessness. That's how they feed, they drive people to jump and suck from them as they fall.

Valkyrie has red hair she washes in fresh blood. And I've heard she has a preference for young boys, 7 or 8; she calls them suckling pigs. Totally insane and one of the Sabbat's most lethal weapons. I've heard she has a brother who's a werewolf; the beast runs in her blood that's for sure. She's one Living Dead most of the Angels would like to see dead.

Billy is a Dove and he likes to think he's Native American, and maybe he is. He tells the most outrageous lies -- sorry stories -- he convinces people to happily proffer their jugulars, to give to the poor, muggers to join their local church. But occasionally he'll look you in the eye and you'll see the boy he could have been, and it breaks your heart. He flies to the top of skyscrapers and looks out to the distance as if he could see the wilderness hidden somewhere beneath the cities gleaming glass. He glows with soul. But hell, it might just be a trick -- he owes me a million favours that he swears he'll repay the next time night dawns.

Adam was coked when he was alive and he's coked now he's living dead. He hangs out with the punks under the bridge and they treat him like a small god. He's reckless and has a curious take on the Angel's evangelism. He could be a problem when it comes to maintaining the charade. And Luke has the Eagle's keeping an eye on the little hawk.

Vandal was kicked to the verge of death by gay bashers in the wake of the Sydney Mardi Gras. I ask you why would homophobes go to a Gay Mardi Gras? Needless to say, he has a few nueroses when it comes to the living, and his personal version of therapy usually results in spectacular carnage. But in the end, Vandal is a vampire success story; his Sire found him in a gutter and since then he's moved up to a hawk in less than a year.

Shelly wanted to die young. He was a local star on the poetry scene and pretty talented so I've heard. Unfortunately for him that roused Lothaire's jealousy. When Shelly tried to kill himself, a la Thomas Chatterton, at the ripe old age of 17, Lothaire took the opportunity to embrace him. He refused to let the guy die until he admitted he could write poetry. If ever a Sire and childe could go on a mid-day talk show its those two. He insists eternal life won't be long enough for Lothaire to realise understanding iambic pentameter doesn't make him Shakespeare, and it will take a stake and bright sunlight for him to ever like the guy. Shelly wants a divorce, he says that all the time, at any cost.

Lothaire, also known as Calvin, (behind his back) because his first kill was to get a pair of designer jeans. He's pretentious, tiresome and irritating; he's also a French Canadian. He's Okay in a fight, if he doesn't run off to a poetry reading that is. Lothaire is practically solely responsible for the Angel's dismissal in the eyes of all the other clans, Prince childe and all, for being ridiculous children of the 80's.

Abel was Luke's first childe, and his first love. But he's never risen above Hawk. Eagles are in too much danger and take too much of the burden of Luke's psychic weight. I suspect that Luke couldn't bear to put him at risk -- and Abel keeps him sane in a more primal way. I dread to think what would happen should Luke lose him. Still, Abel has real wisdom, a sense of humour, and that will keep him alive longer than strength or speed. Able may not be an eagle, but he's the guardian angel of the clan, the first and I suspect he will be the last, the only when all else falls.
