Known Among Vampires
Lopez rose to prominence as an organizer and strategist during the bloodbath in LA, utilizing his influence over manufacturing businesses and the warehouse district to set up guerilla attacks and hide the wounded. Eventually showing up in San Francisco, he secured the title of Baron in 1999.
Known Among Anarchs
Lopez was, for over a hundred years, a pillar of the Anarch community in California. Known (discretely) to be Ventrue, he worked diligently against the encroachment of the Camarilla. His known skills are mostly suited toward logistics and organization due to his past as a trader during the gold rush. He rose to prominence as an organizer and strategist during the bloodbath in LA, utilizing his influence over manufacturing businesses and the warehouse district to set up guerilla attacks and hide the wounded.
Eventually showing up in San Francisco, he secured the title of Baron in 1999. Recently, however, something has dulled within him and he's begun bending more and more to the Camarilla's incursions. For the moment, nobody else has the skill or political backing to unseat him, but rumors have begun to circulate that he's somehow compromised.
Where unable to contact Lopez in person, one can reach the Baron through his phone number, email, or business address for Lopez Imports. His interns are the ones who are going to pick up whatever nasty surprise gets sent into the mailroom if the address circulates, so…
Are you considering to apply an Anarch character? 'Lopez Imports' and 'Hired Gun' are two of the three Anarch chargen hooks available to all prospective Anarchs as a baked-in plot hook.
- Lopez Imports: Your Occult interests have landed you in Baron Lopez's international imports company, and in your nightly grind you sometimes see the 'sensitive' goods -- bodies and baubles alike. Whether as an actual employee, a courier, or security detail to protect its 'interests', your history of operating on a need-to-know basis has led you to believe the breadcrumbs wind inevitably to House Carna. Of course, it's not like those renunciates are going to come out of hiding for your curiosity's sake. Maybe you're here for the pay, maybe you're here to leverage something out of whatever scandal has to be buried in the occult connections Lopez makes with his clientele. Either way, you're well-positioned for the night that some unique cargo gets "lost."
- Hired Gun: Lopez brought you here to rip and tear until it's fucking done. Your role as a mercenary within Lopez's barony has tied you in with either the Hells Angels MC, the Mexican Mafia or both. Your contracts to move goods and bust heads sometimes pairs you with the likes of MS-13 and the Sureños, leading you to inherit their rivals (the Norteños, BGF and MOD and among them). Although those of your own anarch gang are usually the only vampires on the block during your night-to-night, the Anarchy's allegiance with the Mafia will occasionally open up work with the Sabbat-infiltrated Sinaloas. Makes some contracts into some lucrative-ass adventures. Play your cards right.
- Fort Point Murders: We're not here to play superheroes. Regardless of whether the ... inspired, things I hear about this murderer are actually true, let's worry about threats that are harder to prevent than simply not going somewhere.
- The Children Of Athanasius: We've got addresses. We've got faces and emails. Let's systematically work through them, figure out who to destroy, who to kill, who to evict.
- The Author: I'm excited that we're in the unique position to actually get our hands on this thing, if it exists. We could use it to bait the hunters who want it. I certainly want it. And once I find out more clearly what it is, I may sell it.
