The collapse of the Chartrean Empire brought an end to an era of outrageous decadadence. No longer would the Romanian Court dictate the conduct of vampires worldwide and the sudden but bloody struggle for power that followed thinned the ranks of cabals everywhere. The dust of the Empress was not yet scattered before the self-styled Countess Lisbon attempted a coup. She died instantly, the wakizashi she habitually wore carving out a ‘V’ in her throat. The London Court all changed ranks, making way for a woman that was almost a fledgling to ascend to the coveted second position. Gillian was almost disappointed at the ease of it.
