"I am the last monarch of the old school: It is my job to protect my people from their politicians." — Emperor Franz Joseph I to President Theodore Roosevelt
Columbus has risen from decades of strife to become a bastion of old world Camarilla tradition. We have a prince, but Protocol is king.
The city and its court were founded under the auspices of Prince Apollonia Lysander of Clan Malkavian. Her rule was tough, but fair and represented a time of stability and growth. Her rule was defined by constant warfare, which unified the city, but would prove to be her undoing. She took a hard line against the Sabbat and unruly kindred of all sects, waging active war against their incursions.
Sensing the impending ratification of the Chicago Blood Accords, the Sabbat conducted a final assault on the city, capturing Prince Lysander. With the advent of the Accords, it was impossible for the Kindred of the city to rescue their prince. She is presumed dead.
Penelope Painswick declared praxis, and immediately set about managing the situation. However, tensions long kept hidden under the previous administration began to test the strength of the city.
The Anarchs of the West Side took this as opportunity to assert their strength, and achieved brief recognition of their territory between 2012 and late 2017 with the assistance of Anarchs from the nearby Free City of Sanctuary.
Common fear of outside interference in Columbus’ internal affairs led the city to rebrand itself as a stronghold of traditional Camarilla values under the leadership of Anfonso de Martinez in November of 2017.
By February of 2018, an alliance had been concluded with the Independent Alliance. With a mutual agreement to reciprocate negative status and work together for defense and development, a treaty granted official recognition to the Independent Alliance in the city.
