[A Tremere's Perspective]
Addressed to M. Strauss
My esteemed Regent,
I believe I have uncovered the party responsible for the string of Chantry apprentice murders that have transpired of late. It appears to be an anachronistic Fiend from the Old World. Furthermore, the Sewer Rats inform me that this particular Fiend is something of a mad crusader. How he has kept himself hidden is simply beyond my comprehension, save for one speculative thread. It is possible that he has bought off the Sewer Rats’ silence on certain finer details.
However I would humbly suggest the use political leverage in dealing with this issue. By forcing this problem onto the Romanian Fiend, the Clan can deal with ‘two birds with one stone’ as it were.
Your faithful apprentice,
