Guests Artists are the NPCs that are the prominent characters throughout the campaign. They are the Faces the characters meet and deal with on a semi-regular basis. They are listed in order of appearance. Note that if a particular Face has not been encountered, they won’t yet appear on this page, but will still (likely) be found on their Location page.

Sgt. Detective Opfer works in the Special Investigations unit out of the Sacramento Police Department headquarters downtown. He has been on the force for twenty two years and eagerly looks forward to retirement. He and his partner Val VanVeen investigate the “unusual” that happens within the city limits. Rudy is partly in the know, but doesn’t quite want to admit it.
Allegations have recently arisen that Opfer is associated with the South American Red Court vampires. Rudy holds to his story that he and his wife merely vacationed in Cancun, nothing more.
Detective Valencia VanVeen is a detective in the Special Investigations unit of the Sacramento Police Department. She is Rudy Opfer’s partner and relatively new to the position. She has been on the force seven years, but was recently promoted to detective in S.I. The things she and Rudy investigate seem incredible, but she knows there are reasonable explanations for everything that she has seen. There must be.
Recent events have enlightened VanVeen. Being kidnapped by a shape-shifting demon has a way of opening the eyes to the supernatural. Luckily for her, she now has a strong man at her side, savvy to the ways of the uncanny. Michael McConnell rescued VanVeen from said goon (Geun), and they have been involved in a romantic relationship ever since.
Annie Mae moved to Sacramento from the Deep South, and brought her famous BBQ with her. She loves to make folks happy, and her good cooking and the great tunes pouring from her jukebox promise just that.
Gaston Neahr is the owner and manager of the nightclub Carpe Noctem. Little is known of him, other than he is a commanding figure who is emperor of his demesne. He uses bodyguards and rough goons, and is suspected of having ties with the Oak Park Bloods and drug trafficking.
Recently Neahr has been discovered to be a South American Red Court vampire.
Hirion Elenron is the Knight of the Autumn Court of Faeries. He showed up outside Carpe Noctem to remove Red Court vampire venom from Fee Bettencourt, but erased the knowledge of his presence from those who witnessed him.
Ms. Belvue is married to “Count” Melvin Booker and is manager of Count’s Vamp’d rock club. She is purely invested in the club, which is owned by her husband, for business and financial reasons, and does not much care for the music played there. She is an incredibly sexy and classy woman, and completely devoted to her husband.
Spike Park was a 17 year old student at Sac State, and a member of Tau Kappa Mu fraternity. He was the son of Reginald Park III, of the Paisley Parks of Minneapolis, and worked part-time at Charnel House Records. Spike was a rebellious teenager who recently crossed the threshold into full White Court vampirism. He had been stirring up trouble at Count’s Vamp’d, and was an obnoxious and annoying monster.
Spike was recently killed by one of the Geun brothers. His murder was framed on Eva Dune, who is currently incarcerated waiting trial.
