Blood of Vhol
The members of the Blood of Vhol all believe themselves to be descendants of the founder of the city-state Vhol, an eponymous obscure, and possibly altogether legendary, figure. They seek to attain dominion over that city through murder, infiltration and other unsavoury means and are rarely active beyond it. Greatly concerned with purity of the blood, they admit as new members only those who can satisfactorily demonstrate their descent from the line of Vhol, and often practice blood-drinking, incest, cannibalism and similar perversions to strengthen the “purity of the blood”.
More of a mystery cult than a traditional subversive group, the Blood of Vhol includes numerous sorcerers, whose status within the organization is usually high. They lead the members in drug-fuelled rituals whose objectives are recall of past incarnations, contact with revered ancestors of the line of Vhol and ideally, possession by Vhol her(or him-)self. Insights and goals obtained during such reveries are a strong directing influence on the organiztion’s plans and policies.
