Star felt the tension in the room grow as everyone seemed like they were about to leave. Star felt that even in death The Primogen was determined to ruin her presentation.

Star could not believe that Lord Benjamin and Lord William were all dead. On one hand she felt very relieved and that it kind of serve them right for the dastardly things that they were plotting. There plans to overthrow the p
Princedom and sabotaging the Ventrue and Gangrel Alliance and discrediting the Prince and Lord Valentine had failed. Star felt that this was karmic Justice.


Now she truly believe she had a chance to actually shine in front of the Board and hopefully earn membership into her clan. She was nervous that the prince and Lord Valentine had not arrived but she was confident in Lady Martha's talents and Count Hayworth and Lady Victoria's assistance.

From everyone that the Count had informed Star about, She belived that there was no one among the Board that wish to sabotage this presentation, for all seemed loyal to the Clan and its principles as a whole regardless of personal feelings for Lord Valentine.

Though as happy as hearing about the Lords demise made her feel, she wondered if their deaths would leave a power vacuum in the Camarilla, due to the loss of positions in which they held. And she wondered who would rise to fill their place, certainly though she  hoped that it would be in the knight's favor And Star hoped that the Board would see just how important keeping the Knights of Blood active was to the clan as a whole. This "tragic" event May certainly have been a blessing in disguise.

Star cleared her mind of any distracting thoughts and only focused on the ceremonial task at hand.
She went to the top of the stairs meet Martha half way, Star made ready her mind and letting all her nervousness , and anxiety drift away.

<I will shine tonight... I AM a Ventrue!..>

Martha went upstairs to fetch Rebecca right away. She opened the doors and asked her.
"Are you ready?"

Then the Harpy escorted the Fledgeling to the Presence of the Board and definetely was a whole different experience to walk toward this monsters. She starts to look the faces of inmesive powerful kindreds, creatures that control the entire country and per haps have influence on world scale, feeling quite intimidated by them.

Their presence, their supernatural presence was sensitive to her, even if they were not focused in demonstrate it to Rebecca. She felt in Awe of their elegance, their power and felt smaller with each step walking forward.

In the presence of these giants Rebecca heard Martha's word from far far away, announcing her presentation and proclaming her deeds, starting from the Token given by Clan Gangrel's Primogen as a vouch for her value to the Camarilla to the most recent events defending the Chess Club. It was interesting to hear as an achievement to have helped in the stabilization of the Ventrue Gangrel alliance.

All the members heard with attention everything presented by Martha and then Count Hayworth speaker of the Board in the Primogen's instead said.
"Hear me all! I, Count David Hayworth vouch for this fledgling achievements to be true and for her to be an honourable warrior." he sitteed.

Lady Walker said.
"It is noted by the Board your vouch, Count Hayworth.

In the name of the Gerousia of the great City of New York, under the princehood of Strategoi and Geronte Michael Bright I request a Proof of Tasting for the Fledgling to be included in the Great Clan Ventrue and recognize her Dignitas for the achievements she has until this night.

Please rise your hand all in favor..."


Hayworth said.
"Motion aprooved unanimously, Baroness."

Martha then went in and out of another room and got back with a suitcase, she opened in front of the Gerousia. Inside was a paper sealed with the Royal wax sigil, There were five vials each containing a different kind of blood. Five Praetors took one vial each, except for Count Hayworth and Melissa.

Only Victoria, Eliah, Hellene, Jan and Ilyana took one, each declaring in order the roman number on the top of the bottle and then identifying themself.

Victoria was the first to say.
"Fledgling, come to me and drink from this vitae." Martha went with Rebecca after leaving the open suitcase on the table and taking a white cloth handkerchief with her.

Rebecca removed the wax sealed vial and drank from it. It's taste was purely vomitive, it was bitter and had a rotten flavour at the end. Martha hurried the handkerchief to prevent a leak from Star's mouth.

The second to talk was Jan, he said the same words and the taste of the bottle was also disguisting, not in the same way. This was like water, almost no taste in it, at the end it felt acidic and poisonous to her. Same result.

The third to talk was Ilyana and Rebecca proceeded to drink from a vitae so pure and pristine that Rebecca felt remorse just to defile it with her tasting. She felt aweful, stomach sick and her conciousness didn't allow her to drink spilling it out.

The fourth was Hellene, she repeated the words and when the wax seal was broken the smell seemed alluring, provocative, it smelled like the first snow of the year, the heat and the cold entwining as the comfort of a cigarrette came sliding inside of her. She drank pure glory and her eyes could not reflect anything but pleasure.

The words came to Star's mind inmediately and she spoke even before she realize it.
"This is the blessing of the Kings and Queens, leaders of humankind, true bringers of nobility and power.

Hear I declare this is the true vitae, the one my blood has chosen, the only one I've ever known."


Melissa was pleased to hear Rebecca's word, her entonation, the perfect movement in a dramatic fashion of her hands and perfect pose of the Agoge dressing. Then she looked at Victoria in acknowledgement of her remarkable prowess in Rebecca's Agoge. He said.
"Lord Hayworth please break the seal and give me the Royal Certificate of the Vitae."

Lord Hayworth did so in a dramatic way with the tip of his belt dagger and gave the letter as instructed. A beautiful piece of paper, made of thick paper and gold.

Melissa read the the paper and then said.
"I, Baroness Melissa Walker, in the attributes of my position as Geronte I declare solemly that the selected vitae corresponds to that she have been witnessed drinking in the past and that has rejected all other kinds of vitae. That's the brand of nobility in her blood. Therefore, she is, now and ever, declared as Ventrue."

All Kindred stood up for an standing ovation in Rebecca's honour. She felt like a goddess being honored by these creatures of legend. Martha helped her around the table to go salute each of the members of the Gerousia, each had loving words of sincerely compliment for her, wishing her the best in the eternity to come, and all swore to her to give up everything to safe her, to protect her, as one of their own.

After giving one lap around the Table Martha left her again in the same spot where she started.

Star followed Martha's lead, trusting in her abilities and her new found poise and grace.
Her presentation went far better than Star could have ever hoped to imagined. The anxiety and stress of having to worry about her presentation being sabotaged melted away as she prepared herself to stand before these Great Kindred.

With Lady Martha's help, The right words to say followed from her lips with all the grace of a True Ventrue. Hearing her deeds bring brought to light and  made her feel honored more than words could described. Star was shining, and soaked on the praise with humility and grace.

Star tryed not to show any hesitation when fulfilling the tasks of the Tasting. She felt her "snobbish" beast suffer in protest to the taste of the unsavoury vitea, only finally feeling reprieve with the last vile. The flavor was calming, and pleasant sending her senses into bliss.

Star spoke the guided words as natural as a flowing river. The feeling was surreal, yet not unpleasant.
Finally the words were spoken to her that it seemed she had waited a life time to hear. .

That's the brand of nobility in her blood. Therefore, she is, now and ever, declared as Ventrue."

This was everything Star wanted to hear, and she was deeply greatful to those who helped her reach this point. To be recognized by these Kindred was the greatest honor she had ever felt.
Star was in repsher, and captivated by the feeling of acceptance by these Great Kings and Queens. Finally she was accepted and reconized by her Clan.
She had never before felt so honored to be a Ventrue, and fully understood what it ment in that moment to belong to Clan Ventrue.

She could not hide her smile in her shine, she followed expected protocol and fulfilled it all with poise and grace of a socialite.

All Elders were sitting and Melissa said.
"Count Hayworth please stand up and explain your case regarding the now Neonate Rebecca Garrison of Clan Ventrue."

The Count stood up and said.
"Please may the honorable Board members note that Adam Brick Eiren under my command has incurred in a serious offense against Praetor Victoria von Baden by damaging was of her ghoul in an attempt to cause a political feud between Ventrue and Gangrel Clan."

Melissa seemed already aware as the rest of the Board of the situation and simply said.
"The Board takes note, please the offended rise and speak up."

Victoria rise and fulfilled the protocol as introducing herself and then said.
"The offense against the Gangrels was confirmed by a Duel between Sir Hell Song and Eiren Adam Brick, regarding my ghoul he has not done any amendments to correct his wrong doings.

I pledge to the Board my decision of demoting Eiren Adam Brick to the status of Peer, removing all Dignitas accomplish by this Ventrue and submit my protest demanding inmediate reddressing."


Walker said.
"The Board acknowledges your authority to remove the Eiren from his responsabilities and he is forbiden to regain his Dignitas until such amendments are fulfill to your satisfaction Praetor.

Count Hayworth please continue."


David said.
"In absense of an Eiren accounted with the responsability to look out and coordinate with the Police departments of New York City to counter any Sabbat activities I recommend the Board that Eiren Philip Lawless to be accounted of such responsability.

Also I pledge my request to the Board for Miss Rebecca Garrison to be accounted with the responsability of Eiren of Gangs in New York City, under my command."
then he sat down.

Geronte Melissa Walker said.
"Please all in favor of accepting the Count's propousal rise your hand in aprooval.

The Board is satified with your propousal and now assigns Miss Rebecca Garrison as Eire of Gangs under your command to counter any and all Sabbat activities in New York City."


She makes a pause and then looks at Rebecca.
"Neonate Rebecca Garrison pledge your oath of servitude to Count Hayworth."

David stood up, Martha held high a cross between David and Star while she glided to her knees while again the words flowed out of her mouth like honey and silk from her mouth swearing an oath to serve Count Hayworth.
"In the presence of my God, the God of my Elders, I, Rebecca Garrison do solemnly swear and pledge my soul to the Clan Ventrue, to defend and obey Count David Hayworth until the Clan is no more or death shall take me, and to uphold the honour of the Knighthood.

Furthermore, I swear to protect all Ventrue those that require my protection, not to slay an undeserving or defenceless adversary, not to take part in a false judgement or treason, or to withdraw if it cannot be prevented, to never give evil counsel, and to help, if possible, a fellow being in distress.”


Melissa acknowledge and said.
"Neonate you've sworn! God beest thy witness of its fulfillment. shalt the Clan demand thee if 't be true thee ever breaketh such solemn Oath. Now leaveth with our blessing."

Melissa said.

Never has Star sweeled so much with pride before when Melissa called Star a neonate and a member of the Clan. Star was not used to feeling pride, being that she often has a low self image of herself... so this moment was memorable.

When Lady Victora spoke about Adam Brick, due to Star's boost in empathy, she felt slightly sorry for the kindred. Regardless of the reasons behind his wrong doings, weather his Sire provoked him or not, he still just lost the man on top of having to deal with the punishment of losing his position, all his Dignitas and forced to live a minimalistic lifestyle among the Gangrels he seemed to dislike to much.

Though Star believed that " what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". And everything that Adam will go through will make him a better kindred for it. Now without his Sire's protection and influence, Adam will have to find his own way to shin. And Star believed Adam could do this, if he could get over his own ego, and honor what it ment to be a Knight.

"In absense of an Eiren //counter any Sabbat activities I recommend the Board that Eiren Philip Lawless to be accounted of such responsability.
Hearing this made Star smile, she was very happy for her friend's promotion. If anyone deserved it, Star felt Phillip did, and could imagine his face once told the news.

Star was thinking pleasantly about Phillip and she nearly missed what the Count had to say, needless to say Star was a bit stunned.
<wait...Eiren of Gangs ..me? … I get responsabilities? >
Star thought to herself after hearing the Count, Star was extremely honored.

Star stepped forward and Kneeled before the Count and the Board. As the words of her oath flowed from her lips Star felt them true to her soul. She wanted more than anything to be accepted as a Knight, and as she pledged herself and took the oath. Star took her pledge very seriously,  She felt this was part of her destiny ... She could only imagen what else her future might hold.
