"If you're going to play jihad, you need to do your homework. Knowledge is power, and power has a price... but seeing as how I've already got what I want from them, I'll give you a freebie."
— Gary Golden, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines
The Nosferatu get everyone's secrets and all the dirty laundry. Want to know what happened in Iran-Contra? Ask the Nosferatu. Need to know who's really responsible for Whitewater? Ask the Nosferatu. They control the metro system. They search through the trash. They know the dark, secret underbelly of D.C. They know which Bone Gnawers had a bit too much vampire blood to drink. They can tell you the location of the Setite temple and the latest area of Sabbat infiltration. Of course, everything has a price, or requires a favor. Knowledge isn't free.
