The Ordo Dracul
-The Ordo Dracul
Although considered one of the newer covenants, no kindred tonight can argue the impact that the Ordo Dracul has left on Kindred society. Their dedication to their research has made for many breakthroughs in the mystery that is the kindred condition. Domains where the Ordo Dracul are in high numbers see a flourishing of education and understanding of all manners of occult matters. They often bill themselves to the other covenants as advisers or researchers and sometimes a neutral third party that rarely gets caught up in the politics of other covenants.
The kindred of the Ordo Dracul follow the ley lines, the mystical energy areas of the world where arcane magics are known to be magnified. Over years of research, it has become understood that Ley lines follow abnormal geological features such as longer rivers, deeper lakes, or taller mountains. Thus the Ordo Dracul has claimed very little in the way of cities with kindred courts. The Ordo may be smaller than some of the other covenants, but in most cases it prefers it that way. With fewer members, the Ordo Dracul can keep a better eye on the small amount it has and can keep them better organized with far less effort.
Most Ordo Dracul keep to their own circles, knowing that sharing the covenants magics are forbidden and also because they are so caught up in their research that such mundane things like court no longer interest them. Where as other covenants seek to better their social position or find absolution in a faith in god or gods, kindred of the Ordo Dracul seek personal enlightenment.
-The Order of Newton:
Where as the majority of the Ordo Dracul is loosely organized and holds to no one centralized faction, the order of Newton is comprised of members of the Ordo Dracul who aspire to greatness through politics. Members of the Ordo Dracul that pursue political interests more often than not are members of the order of Newton. Much more organized than the rest of the Ordo Dracul, members of the Order of Newton are highly respected by other kindred of the Ordo Dracul for a simple reason: While the order of Newton takes care of the politics, the rest of the Ordo Dracul can be left to it’s work.
Members of the Order of Newton are often time sought out by members of other covenants who wish to do business with the Ordo Dracul, knowing that members of the Order of Newton are much more civilly minded than most other Ordo Dracul.
