Assault on Worcester
In January 2008, a group of Brujah planned a surprise attack on the mages of the Worcester Hallow, using several artifacts of considerable power. Had the mages been caught unawares they might have been killed before they were aware of the attack. Fortunately, they had been warned of the attack by a local power player in Kindred politics, Dietrich Staal.
Staal has had cordial dealings with the Magesterium in the past, trading favors with a minimum of the double-dealing the Council has come to expect from the vampire population. Staal remains in good favor with the Council and is considered marginally more trustworthy than most vampires. He appears to respect us at least enough to fear us, or vice verca.
