TOTAL REFRESH COST:
The two most influential families of the White Court of Vampires in the Seattle area have been bitter political rivals if not outright enemies since the founding of the city. The Mercer Family, led by AARON MERCER, was banished from the Emerald City in 1908 through some nifty political maneuvering by the head of Clan Montague. The infamous Calkins Motel on MERCER ISLAND, the seat of power for the family, was burned to the ground that same night in a tragic fire.
Black Monday changed all of that. Aaron Mercer was able to use the incident and Montague’s “incompetence” in the matter to end his exile from the Emerald City. He has quietly moved back to his home on Mercer Island and taken a seat on the Conclave of Emerald. He has been building a base of power and opposing Lord Montague’s decisions ever since. There is little doubt that a confrontation is inevitable between the two families.
