The City[edit]

An Overview[edit]

Yadda Yadda

Random Points of Interests[edit]

Space Needle[edit]

The one thing everybody knows about Seattle, besides the coffee and Bill Gates. Built for the '62 World's Fair to collect and harness the psychic energy of Seattle's mortals. Forget I said that. It has a nice rotating restaurant on top, too.

Ballard Locks[edit]

How the salmon get from the sea to freshwater, and how rich dudes get their yachts from the docks in front of the lakefront homes to the sea.

U District[edit]

The artsy neighborhood around the University of Washington ("U-Dub")


The north end of Downtown, where they have a lot of skyscrapers and a lot of bars for all the skyscraper people to drink at after work.


The famous bit of Seattle, with Pike Place Market, views of the bay, the Ferris Wheel, the Lusty Lady, and a lot of restaurants and tourists.

Pioneer Square[edit]

The south end of Downtown. The oldest neighborhood in town, full of red brick picturesque buildings, bars and homeless people. Plus it's got the Seattle Underground tunnels that let you go all over town without going out on the surface. Some people find that convenient.


The area south of downtown and south of the major sports stadiums, full of warehouses and industrial parks, right near the docks of the cargo port. This is the hard industrial core of Seattle.

International District[edit]

Not far from Pioneer Square and Downtown, it's Seattle's Chinatown, with Little Saigon and Koreatown thrown in for good measure.

Nihonmachi (Japantown)[edit]

It's still there, but they took all the Japanese people away during WWII and after the war they didn't come back. Funny how that works.

Judkins Park[edit]

A little neighborhood with heart.




Patty Harris[edit]

Pete's doctor at the University of Washington Hospital

Wesley Medlock[edit]

Seattle Mayor and enemy of unlicensed dance clubs.

Dalton Fuller[edit]

Pete's former associate, now local hood running protection rackets and prostitution. Rumored to swing both ways.

Detective Jack Hendry[edit]

Savvy local cop that used to work with Pete occasionally. As honest as he needs to be.

William Krill[edit]

Former Number Two and Renfield to some very bad customers; now Pete's convinced he's the spider in the web, the Keyser Soze of Seattle.

Miss Susannah[edit]

Former rocker that Ashja produced albums for, now married and working a day job, but still a friend

Doumbi Aya[edit]

Second-gen Malian immigrant and boss of the Atlantic Rollas, who control the Judkins Park area neighbourhoods. His daughter, Rokia, is marrying Aya's lawyer Ibrahim Dramé, and Aya is pressuring Ashja to play (or organise) some traditional music for the wedding.

Alex Curtis[edit]

Sam's red-headed sister.

Adaku Achike[edit]

Former warlord and arms dealer from Nigeria whom FNU remembers without much fondness.

Mario Castellucio[edit]

Retired former mob boss and former employer of Sam, did a lot of business with supernaturals and somehow walked away from it all.

Toni Castellucio[edit]

Mario's son, who operates a strip club where Sam works. Not as big a wheel as his dad was.


One of Toni's dancers who considers Sam a good friend.


A bartender, not a dancer, who friendly to Chi.

Archer Morgan[edit]

One of Jazzmyn's clients, who got drunk and indiscreet. Might actually be in one of the other factions, we don't know yet.

Sophie Morgan[edit]

Music fan and UW student, writes music reviews for the college paper. Knows everybody.

Sandra Wilson[edit]

Episcopalian minister, trying to save Jeremiah's soul.



FNU's sire, a crappy tattoo artist.

Kelly Beardsley[edit]

Chef and Fnu's thrall who wants to be turned.


An old-school, Nosferatu-style vamp who's led the vampires of Seattle since '99



Mysterious hander-outer of demo CDs.


Kim Qui[edit]

Vietnamese water spirit, the turtle of Golden Lake, now highly placed in the Blue Court of Seattle. A crashing bore, and Ashja's patron. Also owner of the Golden Turtle seafood restaurant in the International District.

Wormwood & Associates[edit]

A reputable development firm, led by a Board of Directors who are not of this place. Jeremiah's patrons.

Tayte Chambers[edit]

Jeremiah's contact at Wormwood & Associates'. Mortal, for the moment.
