SABBAT
While the “Kindred” (a term the Sabbat despise)
of the Ivory Tower cower among mortals and cling to
outdated Traditions, the Sabbat prefer to indulge in
their vampiric nature. They refuse to wear the tattered
rags of humanity or to act as slaves and cattle to their
elders. Besides, vampires are clearly and openly superior
to mortals — do humans lie down with cows and
call them brother? As such, Sabbat vampires consider
mortals to be tools and food at best, and have little tolerance
for “Cainites” who pretend to be human. They
are inherently alien and literally inhumane.
Títulos do Sabbat

name of the aforementioned Mithras or Prince Lodin
of Chicago might be enough to cause a shiver of fear
down the spines of those cities’ vampires.
The role of Prince is a complex and varied one and
much has been said about it, but ultimately, a Prince is
master of the domain.
Archbishop (Sabbat)
With many of the same powers as the Prince, the
Archbishop is the closest analog the Sabbat has to that
position. An Archbishop is different, though, in that
the Sabbat is less concerned with enforcing the Traditions
and more concerned with waging its holy war
against the Antediluvians and everyone else. Thus,
the Archbishop is part spiritual leader and part warlord,
advancing the Sword of Caine’s agenda and establishing
Cainite primacy. This last is a difficult task
to undertake, as it’s not simply a question of turning a
Sabbat city into a living hell and declaring that vampires
rule; the fundamentals of the Masquerade and the
sheer weight of the mortal population means that is
a war to be waged in stages. Too many Sabbat fail to
understand this, especially among the young, and lose
faith in their leadership because they’re too impatient
to play out the long-game Jyhad. This subversion of ignorance
is perhaps the Archbishop’s greatest challenge
to overcome.

Ductus: Leaders of individual packs, Ducti attend to the
operation matters of their charges, resembling gang leaders
or chiefs of small tribes. The title of Ductus is largely
honorific, according recognition to the most accomplished
member of a pack. Some authority accompanies the title,
but the Ductus who throws his weight around is likely to
find his ass dumped unceremoniously in a trash bin, if not
staked out to welcome the next sunrise.

Pack Priest: Priests bear the responsibility for the
spiritual wellbeing of their packs. Second in command
to the Ductus, the Pack Priest officiates all the rituals
observed by the pack, and often creates a few for the
sole use of the pack. All packs have at least one Pack Priest, though some rare and large packs have two. In the event that the Ductus is eliminated, the Pack
Priest becomes a temporary leader until a new leader
can be appointed by the Bishop, Archbishop.

Templar: Also known as Paladins, the Templars are
an elite force of bodyguards appointed by a Bishop or
greater leader. Templars serve a variety of duties, always
in a martial capacity. Most Archbishops keep a cadre
of Paladins in their retinues to handle delicate matters
best solved by a judicious application of violence.

Bishop: Bishops are those immediately below the
Archbishop in Sabbat domains, with the same highlevel
duties but much narrower scope. A Bishop may
be in charge of a single aspect of Cainite unlife in the
domain, or she may be a more general spiritual leader,
inquisitor against diabolism, military general, or any
other specific aspect of Sabbat agenda. Some Sabbat
domains have no Archbishop, but are instead ruled by
a council of Bishops.

Priscus: Superficially, a Priscus is similar to a Primogen,
but is never appointed by an Archbishop or
Bishop; Prisci rise to the rank over time and according
to no specific criteria. A Priscus, politically, is an advisor
to the local Sabbat authority figures, with no formal
role in Sect politics but great practical influence.

Cardinal: Cardinals oversee Sabbat affairs in large
geographical regions. As the superiors of the Archbishops,
Cardinals coordinate the Sabbat in their cities and
direct them in the Jyhad. Further, it is their direct duty
to bring any cities within their territory under the Sabbat’s
sway. Most Sabbat see their Cardinals no more
than once per year, if at all, as the duties of the office
keep them in constant communication with Bishops,
Archbishops, Prisci, and the Regent herself.

Regent: The Regent is the ultimate authority over
all of the Sabbat, ruling the Sect from the Sabbat
stronghold in Mexico City. Each of the Archbishops
or councils of Bishops is ultimately accountable to the
Regent.
