There is a cold war conflict between Houston’s Kindred and Garou population’s that has held an uneasy truce since the late 90’s. This crumbeling truce was the result of a nationwide ceasefire declared after the end of the conflict known as the Chicago incident, but the possibility of more joint actions by the lupines calling themselves the Black Spiral Dancers and their Sabbat allies once again jeopardize this ceasefire. The fallen, outcast Garou have been recruiting heavily from the Houston area’s disaffected cubs.
Pasadena, a normally unruly portion of the greater Houston domain have quited down after Orion, the new Gangrel Sheriff, seemingly tamed the area. For decades it was an almost constant battleground between the Camarilla, the Sabbat, Anarchs, and others, but after rounding up numerous thin bloods and Caitiff castoffs, wayward kindred who would have been easy recruitment targets, Orions efforts have not went unrewarded. In recent months Orion has taken the thinbloods under his tutelage and have withdrawn from the cities court. The group has become unusually isolationist and all of his new inductees have all but refused almost any contact with the wider Camarilla court, bothering with presentation only when accompanied by Orion himself. In the span of the few months, of the sheriffs de facto absence numerous attacks, many thought to be of Sabbat activity, have went unanswered.
The Price struggles with a court that does not respect him, but does not wish him replaced either. Prince De Falcon would be considered a neophyte in European cities, but achieved the Princedom through cunning opportunism and faithful support of the Primogen council, but his childish antics have not won him any friends. He came to power by way of Seneschal. His connection to gis families company, De Falcon Industries, had made him both to useful for the cities security to not utilize and to powerful to ignore. Maximus De Falcon served as Seneschal under three different Princes, and turned down the Princedom three times, after each of his predecessors were either killed or vanished.
Recently, someone claiming to be the Brujah primogen, and regent of the University of Houston domain has returned after being seemingly murdered by something that can only be described as a demon, in open witness of numerous members of the court. Thus far, no one has dared move against him, and the Prince seems to have welcomed him like a prodigal son.
