Shadows of The City
San Francisco has a large supernatural population. The strongest groups are the White Court and the Fae Summer Court. House Valetta runs White Court opperations in San Francisco, and has since the Sixties. In keeping with White Court traditions, they don’t occupy any positions of power. Instead, they control the action from behind the scenes, through cat’s paws. The Fae Summer Court claims the Bay area as under its demesnes and also works mostly through proxies. After them, the most powerful supernatural groups are probably the Red Court, the Ordo Malleus and Ghoul Clan LaChaise. The ghosts of the city could be a major power if one could organize them and Mary Ellen Pleasant definitely ranks as one of the most powerful entities in San Francisco. The influence exerted by the Winter Court of the Fae is limited by the extremely small numbers of people they maintain in the city. The White Council currently has no official representation within the city. The Jade Court and other Asian supernaturals tend to limit their influence to Asian neighborhoods but hold dominance in those areas. There is also a small number of Native American supernaturals that are usually more mischeivious than anything.
