Who rules the world? Girls! - Beyoncé
After a very tumultuous and tenuous time as an unstable and chaotic city, Dallas has come under the thumb of three very powerful women: Catherine Descatoire took over as the Camarilla Prince after the death of Mendo, who she served as Seneschal. An ancillae of the Malkavian clan, Prince Descatoire enforces decorum with a firm and serious black lace covered hand. Though she was known to be something of a thoughtful and quiet woman in the past, she has shocked everyone with her complete and effortless control over court affairs. On the Anarch side of the city, Advocate Prudence has been elected Authority through the respect of her fellows. Unlike past Anarch leaders, she has forged and maintained strong ties to her Camarilla neighbors, resulting in a stronger city and several unified efforts. New to this chain of command is Rowan Milliner of Clan Giovanni, recently made Doyen of the Independent Alliance in the city. Rowan developed a good reputation in the city by generally being a helpful and approachable member of her clan. Most recently, Rowan organized all investigation around the entity called The Weeping Skin that threatened to unleash it's infernal-type forces over the city and greater region. On May 3rd, Rowan and her assembled team successfully defeated this enemy, literally saving everyone, though so few will ever know! Needless to say, Dallas is on track to become a hub of Kindred culture and an example of cross-sect cooperation.
