History of the Tri-Cities and the Surrounding Area

  • Please note that this information is still in the works and, finalized or not, is only available ICly to those with Kindred Lore 1+
  • Masquerade specific (read: made up for game) history is noted by brackets []; everything else is RL but still used for historical purposes and should be considered IC, as well. An asterisk denotes a national architectural landmark.

Pasco was founded in 1891 under guidance of [Ventrue elder] with the help of Privoli De Medici, who had just returned from Europe. The Ventrue brought the railroad and with it both Kindred and Kine. The City grew quickly and prospered. A new city was discussed and, as a result, the court founded Kennewick in 1904.
In 1905 the site for a permanent Elysium was constructed with the use of ancient thaumaturgy and other gifts. Marcus Longard, an old and trusted Ventrue elder who was heavily decorated in the battles against the enemies of the Tower was selected to be the first Keeper of this sacred place. As did many knights of his time, he gave a blood oath to protect the sanctity of Elysium until the time of his final death. As Princes came and went, he stood watch over this precious place and still stands there to this day.
Gloria Crispen, a Toreador diplomat, became the first Prince of the area in 1915. The council thrust this mantel of power upon her shoulders despite her wishes for the control of the Cities to remain with the clans. Under her grace and guidance, the Cities entered an era of peace and growth. The clans, at least on the outside, worked together allowing all to grow under her Praxis. This earned Gloria the nickname, “Prince of Peace.”
The ratification of Prohibition in 1919 created an opportunity too great for the Giovanni to pass up. Moving quietly and paying the right members of the Camarilla to look the other way, they quickly set up their operations and, virtually overnight, made the budding city of Richland the largest of the three cities. The Giovanni had invested and gained influence in most of the resources of the area.
In 1940, Ventrue Elder, Simon Tasidar, started growing his influence in Richland, directly targeting Giovanni Elder Don Romero DeLutchi. This led up to the dethroning of Prince Crispen in the winter of 1948. As the official story goes, she was stripped of her title and returned to the east at the behest of her clan head. It is rumored that Elder Tasidar used his political clout to have her removed, because making her a martyr would have made it more difficult for him to seize the reins of power. Now Prince, Tasidar called for the removal of all Kindred that were not Camarilla, but at the urging of the council he reluctantly changed his position on the matter. However, Prince Tasidar would tolerate no Giovanni in his domain.
The conflict escalated to a cusp in 1949 when Polieo DeLutchi, one of Don Romero’s sons, was dragged to the sun by order of Prince Tasidar. This acted caused the death of both the Scourge and Sheriff in retaliation. It was all-out at this point.
In 1952, a Nosferatu Elder and eight Ancillae were destroyed when the Giovanni burned out the sewers in an attempt to destroy the Camarilla’s spy network. This caused the remaining Nosferatu to retreat from the conflict, calling the war a personal feud between the Prince and the Don.
The war came to a climax in 1954 when the Prince and the Don killed each other in the final assault on Prince Tasidar’s stronghold. The majority of warriors on both sides were dead and the survivors hid using their influence to keep the Masquerade. It looked like the tower may fall, but at the same time the Giovanni had taken great loss.
In the end, it was Privoli DeMedici that finally brokered for peace. He arbitrated the talks and a treaty was struck. Land was set aside for the Giovanni and the fighting stopped.
The Giovanni founded the city of West Richland in early 1955 on the land afforded to them by the treaty. Later that same year, a young Tremere, Flannagan Dughcorc, took the mantle of leadership for the Camarilla of the Cities.
In 1980 a large migration of Brujah set up residence in King City, now part of Pasco of the Tri-Cities.
In 2010, the Brujah of the City openly defy orders from Prince Dughcorc, and it is evident they have turned against him. Three years later, Prince Flannagan Dughcorc sees final death, and Jean-Baptiste seizes Praxis over the Tri-Cities.
