Tier 1, Strong Hold Every good Prince knows to keep a Spymaster. But the previous regimes had little use for them, given the presence of the Paperboy and the Oracle. Still, that doesn't mean there weren't any spies. They were there. Waiting. Watching. Remembering.

The Strix

Tier 1, Weak Hold Serial killer vampires to hunt and diablerize other vampires. Everybody hates these guys but without a Prince to call a blood hunt on them, nobody wants to be the one to cast the first stone (and earn their undivided attention). The Strix are smart enough to only hunt unpopular or unimportant targets, keeping the city's outrage to a minimum. Rumor has it that they employ some sort of special owls, who see all the dirty little deeds on the streets.
