In the Grand Old Flower of the Dominion reside the Lords & Ladies; the wealthiest and most powerful mages, sages, and seers, of auld feuding bloodlines. 

In truth much of their greatness is squandered in petty conflicts, on wooing financiers with sponsored duels, and courting public opinion with lavish parades. They hold no political power, their lands are rented, their thrones are set in theater boxes, and at racetracks, not in the halls of government. 

They are a strange and ancient kind, refined from street-gangs and Mafiosos, elevated to aristocracy by praise and pageantry, haunting the city with their spectacle. 

They serve a purpose. There are monsters ever at the gates, and to fight such terrors it is worthwhile to breed monsters of your own.
