To Vincent, and the rest of his clan, losing even the slightest control to the predator they have become is unacceptable. Like his brethren, he was instructed on how to master himself and was not allowed into society until even starvation couldn't shake his civility.
Regardless of the situation, Vincent will greet an enemy with as much courtesy and respect as he would a friend. It is a practice that has allowed him to attain connections all around the world.
With business, power, and success being his focus, he employs and surrounds himself with people whom he calls ‘good listeners’. Nothing goes on in vampire society that Vincent is not aware of. He will sell that information to the highest bidder, or release it if there is a benefit to him and his empire.
Vincent is known to be a devoted believer of the hope within the Prophecy. While his empire is vastly important to him, his desires are shadowed by his understanding that should the humans become extinct, Descendants would become a dying breed. Despite what it could cost him, Vincent will do whatever is needed to see his people thrive.
". . .at the end of my days, I will not look back upon the ruins of this world and say ‘I should have done something’. The future I hope for is brighter than that." ~ Vincent Kama
The treaty that exists between the Alley and vampire society is the first of its kind. This Cessation of Hostility ensures that the two races will not needlessly go to war and threaten innocent lives. It was both proposed and negotiated by Vincent Kama. During this time, he openly admitted to the Board of Generals that his most potent ability was in persuasion. This admittance allowed the Board to take measures to counteract any attempts to use that ability, but also won Vincent trust that would have otherwise been impossible to attain.
The document is a labyrinth of clauses and stipulations. It ensures that in exchange for information about vampires who cannot live peacefully, the Alley will only hunt those who will not live by the laws governed by this treaty.
The most prevalent exception to the information exchange is that the Alley is forbidden from interrogating, harming, or threatening Descendants into giving them information about the Paragon. To vampires, speaking of them with anyone not of the blood, especially hunters, is a heinous crime punishable by death. They will not allow the Alley to pressure one of their kind into forfeiting their life.
