Chadwick by Night
Reigining Prince of Chadwick
Ventrue Primogen under Prince Maxwell Schindler, Blackwater assumed the Princedom of Chadwick Bay after Eric Taylor voluntarily abdicated. Blackwater is much more moderate than either Schindler or Taylor, taking a middle of the road approach in his rule that closely resembles that of Prince Vincent Sopeck.
Unfortunately Blackwater also seems to have inherited Sopeck’s paranoia. Without the benefit of a Baali whispering in his ear either. He’s seen the tempestuous Taylor replace two Princes, seemingly on a whim and with the Final Deaths of each as the catalyst. He has no intention of allowing the ex-Prince to remain among the Kindred.
Taylor remains a popular figure in the city however, so simply calling a Blood Hunt on his rival would be a risky move at best; one that would almost certainly destabilize the peaceful order that has been the hallmark of Blackwater’s reign. This is something he cannot allow, as all of the immediate nearby cities have fallen to the Sabbat in recent years, and Blackwater knows that unity of the Kindred of Chadwick is the only thing that will protect them from the howling beasts of the Black Hand. To date Blackwater’s gambits and plots against Taylor have been subtle, but his efforts have become more blunt as time passes and his fear of the younger Ventrue grows.
