->We do no overload our operatives with the [{GadgeteerGenius gadgetry]] of [[{{Cyborg}} Iteration X]] or the [[SpaceCadet escapism]] of the [[BoldExplorer Void Engineers]]. We do not obsess over [[EvilutionaryBiologist creating the perfect life-form]] as do the [[MadScientist Progenitors]], or play the [[BigBrotherIsWatching trite espionage games]] of the [[MenInBlack New World Order]]. For this reason, our Convention brethren dismiss us. To many Technocrats, we are glorified bean counters. Someone has to watch the bottom line, and the lot has fallen to us. To a large extent, this is true. We do watch the bottom line, but [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney with an intensity that our colleagues cannot possibly imagine]].

->Sewer Rats ignore [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections human pawns]] in obvious places of power. Let the respected vampires muck about with mortal politics: sometimes, ten well-chosen bureaucrats or aldermen can achieve far more than the mayor ever could. Political celebrities come and go, but well-placed ghouls can stay involved in city politics for [[LongGame years and years]]. Corporate employees on the fast track to success may work for a company for a few years, but [[BeneathNotice a janitor]] can gain access to the same building for a lifetime.
