Overseers of Vampire Society
For thousands of years, the Magnate has served as the overseers of vampire society. From their home in Crete, this large group of Descendants uses spies to keep an eye on happenings around the world. Their purpose is to ensure that the vampire race thrives, a duty that means keeping a balance between them and the humans.
The Magnate's opinion of humans is that they are too arrogant to accept a predator that is superior to them. To protect their kind, they enforce a strict rule that no human is to know of vampire existence.
They appear to tolerate hunters, saying that they are a necessary evil useful in keeping the vampires numbers limited and well behaved. However, their tolerance of them is limited. Over a thousand years ago, the Magnate killed off any human that showed any abilities used by the Warriors of Light, effectively wiping out the hunter bloodline. The annihilation of the Warriors of Light took place because they were moving across Europe, killing every vampire they found.
The Magnate does not consider themselves rulers, nor are they in search of ever greater power. They simply ensure that vampires have a place in the world, and protect their way of life.
When the massacre of Bloody October began, the Magnate saw the threat that this event posed to the secrecy of vampire society. Unable to find the Paragon responsible for it, the Magnate swept over the country and killed every notable vampire within it, leaving the rabble for the Alley to take care of.
In their opinion, those they killed had failed in stopping the event, and failed at controlling those less powerful than them. Their punishment for their inaction was death.
High Order of Assassins
The Magnate is feared and respected by all of their kind, including the Paragon. While they are ruthless, it is the assassins that they control who are the root of that fear.
If anyone has seen a form behind the blinding white aura they give off, they have not survived to speak of it. All that is known is that angelic light is deadly to vampires.
