Sect Alignment: Autarkis
Location: Cutter’s Number Cafe
Formerly the Newcomers, the Illuminare have departed the Camarilla to establish themselves as an independent faction, but they welcome Kindred of any clan and stripe to join them in their pursuit of the truth of the vampiric condition. Professor Victor Goga has espoused a vision for the group as that of academics and questers for occult knowledge, divorced from the politics of the city. Members gather at Cutter’s Number Cafe to study, test theories, and help one another advance whatever path to enlightenment they pursue.
Under Goga’s guidance, the Illuminare have claimed and maintained control over modern academic, medical, and scientific institutions and have sway over various occult communities in Seattle.
