    Michael "Mick" Ross 
A Toreador former rockstar, he is one of the PCs and is played by Troy. He was one for sex, drugs, and violence back when he was human and he still kinda is, he was embraced at the height of rock then left on his own after that died down, he doesn't fit in with other members of his clan nor does he want to

A Malkavian with awful luck, he is one of the PCs and is played by Alex. He was just a collage student majoring in business till a case of mistaken identity left him a kindred with a sire that didn't want him.

  • The Everyman: He was just a 20 something going through collage before his embrace
  • The Team Normal: The only one who hasn't gone face first into the world of vampires, yet

    Smiling Jack

    Sebastian La Croix 
The former prince of the city he is now having to hide in order to not get hunted down by the new prince. He is part of the leadership of The New Revolt and has given up his Camaeilla roots in order to get his revenge
  • 0% Approval Rating: The only person who likes him at the moment is Nika and other than that you'd be hard pressed to find somebody who is even just neutral towards him. The only reason anyone is working with him is that he knows the camarilla inside out and has a spy
  • Arch-Enemy: To Edward for everything that happened in 2004
  • The Chessmaster: Wishes to be one and sometimes is
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: In the past he has backstabbed; Edward Kent, Ming Xiao, And The Camarilla. Funnily though he has no plans to backstab the new revolt, everybody just thinks he does
  • Deadpan Snarker: Even moreso now thanks to 15 years worth of bullshit
  • Defector from Decadence: He has left the Camarilla due to a lot of things and joined an anarch affiliated group
  • Magnificent Bastard: He might get to be this
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He was horrified at The Camarilla's war against The Anarchs
  • Villainous Breakdown: Had once of these after having to go into hiding
  • Why Won't You Die?: He has still yet to get that fledgling from 2004 killed

    Jenna Cross 
The Leader of the thin bloods of L.A and one of the co-leaders of The New Revolt. She is the childe of Smiling Jack and his former ghoul
  • Ironic Name: Her last name is cross and she's a vampire. Do the math

    Jin Sun 
The leader of the Chinatown kindred and one of the co leaders of the new revolt. She hates the camarilla for what they've done to chinatown

    Edward Kent 
The Prince of L.A since 2005, he has seen much and is the employer of the group at the start. He also is the reason most of the anarchs are out of the city due to the war he started.

    Nerissa Aleshire 
The Primogen of the Tremere as well as the regent of L.A.

    Nika Viktorov 
The Primogen of the Ventrue clan and the manger of the board

This chronicle contains these tropes

  • Adult Fear: A 15 year old Crystal going to L.A alone to meet a person for the first time, not helping is that fact that the person is a kindred.
    • Crystal yet again with the image of your younger sister doing freelance work for a vampire then getting invited to a party where the kindred let their beast out
  • Break the Haughty: Sebastian went through this before the chronicle thanks to following; getting betrayed by Edward, Struass becoming the new prince and labeling him a criminal to the camarilla, being unimportant enough where they just pretended they caught him, having to still be in hiding without any of the comforts he was used to, and having to work with a man who wanted him dead 1-2 years ago
  • Conveniently an Orphan: Both Clark and Mick have been abandoned by their sire's leaving them free to do what they want without supervision
  • Dark World: It's VTM, what else would you expect?
  • End of the World as We Know It: There are still some signs pointing to Gehenna but that is unlikly to go anywhere as the storyteller would rather not end the world
  • Papa Wolf: Julian towards Minnie and Clark. Also Smiling Jack towards his childe Jenna

How well does it match the trope?
