Structure, politics and groups

The Sabbat have a simple power structure. With the exception of Regent, most of these titles are not fixed, and some chose to assume different titles such as Deacon or Father instead of Bishop.

The base unit of the Sabbat is the Pack. A pack consists of a number of vampires working, existing and acting together. They enforce loyalty using a blood ritual known as the Vaulderie. New packs can be created should the need arise, for instance if many new recruits arrive in the City or if another pack falls in battle.
