    The Nox Populi is an upscale experience that will take Sacramento nightlife to a whole new level.


    In the heart of downtown Sacramento there is a place of intrigue, excitement and entertainment. The modern flare of this venue is host to exclusive parties. The seduction of this establishment may take you away as you drink, dance and socialize. There are private services available upon request. The best DJ’s in town are in line to play a wide variety of music. Some of you may dine…as long as you have your VIP pass.

    However the Kindred arrive they are discreetly met and led to the back of the club. The space downstairs is decorated in dark, rich woods and expensive furniture. There's a coat room that will also hold one's 'unmentionables'; namely, weapons, at the foot of the stairs. There are also private areas, dark, and furnished with soft couches, as well as meeting rooms with conference tables and chairs, and an area with several televisions. The Court area is decorated with long black and brown silken drapes cascading from floor to ceiling. Draped in elegant bunches and gathered into valances across door frames and between supporting pillars; the lighting is intentionally low, but without the pulse of the music from above, the place has the feel of a sepulchre.

    The common area circles the Court proper, and it becomes apparent that this is not decorated for a single evening. Small symbols note areas for Kindred only that branch off of the Commons, which will be necessary once those Kine privileged enough to see behind the Masquerade filter in: ghouls, herd members, or even devotees. The furniture setting is familiar now: a set of elegant chairs, all dark wood and red leather, arranged in a circle. The baroque lighting leaves the corners of the Elysium commons in deep shadow.

    Another evening; another Danse. For some it will their first, for some it shall be their last. After all, this is the Prince's Elysium, and subject to the Laws of the Domain.

    Eternal Court is open once more...



    Please remember that Predator's Taint is in effect and role-play is expected, or rolls will be asked for!

    This is a great place to get Acknowledged

    Eternal Court is not a singular event. Always open and in constant motion, a compression of the comings and goings of Kindred within Elysium throughout the nights. As such, Eternal Court is also never truly empty; this can include 'faceless masses' of Kindred beneath notice, ghouls, herd members, devotees, or even officials in their offices.

    Jennifer Hazelton strides confidently into the Nox Populi. She had taken a step towards the informal. She did not wear the formal evening gown that she normally wore in public. Yet she had not gone quite as far as the mini gown. She wore a high neck, knee length brown dress with a tie at the waist. She wore a black scarf pinned with a spider pin of precarious stones : fire agate in brown with a glittering green head. The Invictus might not that the scarf looks to be the same as the one Edward Heinrich gave her at the past Invictus meeting. A show of solidarity, or something else? The Nosferatu holds a small champagne colored clutch.

    Maeve makes her way into the Nox Populi dressed casually. It's been a long evening already and she's barely been up a few hours. Her blue hair is a little frizzy, though she's combed through her hair with her fingers a few times to get out any kinks. She's wearing a pretty non-descript black, cotton dress that reaches down to her calves, black leggings underneath. Her shoes are a simple pair of boots. Aside from her blue hair, she looks more akin to a shadow than anything else.

    Tonight, she is on a formal mission. Be actually recognized and actually talk to people within the domain. Yeah, we can do this. Maybe. Uh... Oh, hey. That chick from last time. ...I don't think I got her name. Did I get her name. Crap.

    Maeve gracefully walks over, looking around before saying, "Good evening... Nice spider pin." She says, trying to be polite and not fail at that whole 'socializing' with other vamps thing.

    Quinn descended the stairs into the Nox Populi with her well noted, loved, and favored flats. They were pointed in style, but a rich and soft looking black leather. Simple. Elegant. Always tasteful. Quinn's dress for this evening was a lace and chiffon dress that hit her just a few inches above the knee. The dress had an intriguing and conflicting pattern. Like the shadow that wore it. She too enjoyed intricate patterns, designs and puzzles. Her hair was styled in its usual fashion. Soft, curling, and falling around her shoulders. The only jewelry she wore was diamond stud earrings that when the light managed to hit them through the locks of her hair shone like captive stars.


    Quinn's beast stirred inside her as it was confronted with this new beast. For just a moment Quinn stiffened, but it was only a moment, and it did finally pass. She pretended to smooth out an invisible wrinkle on her shoulder, to give herself another moment as the beast reviled back in fear. She bowed her head respectfully to Lady Hazelton, but did not approach immediately, allowing her to converse with the newcomer who had already claimed the gentle ladies attention. That is not to say that she did not pay close attention to any exchange they should have of course.....

    Horatio enters the club and comes through the usual way.
    He takes a moment to center himself before entering the court proper. He is wearing a nice suit with a green silk tie and hander kerchief.
    Upon seeing Lady Notary Hazelton, he gives a bow and a greeting to everyone.
    "Good evening Lady Notary Hazelton, Miss Durant and...?"

    Jennifer looked to the Kindred who approached her, putting on a polite expression. "Thank you. "
    Her voice slithered out like a snake slithering over dead grass, a part of her Curse.
    A finger touched the pin, then automatically brushed the scarf to ensure it covered everything. She would never dream of showing a possible Breach in Court by displaying the disfiguration that would attract Kine attention. She noted the blue hair, thinking that it was nice. She did not comment on the new Kindred's physical appearance however, thinking it was rude to focus only on a woman's physical traits.

    "Very practical shoes." Jennifer noted approvingly. She herself wore light brown flats, shoes that she could move quietly in. In any situation, she liked the option to disappear if the situation called for it.
    "I do not believe we have met. I did see you approach Priscus Quilz. I am Lady Jennifer Hazelton, Notary of the Invictus and Priscus of the Nosferatu. May I ask your name, Madame?"

    She referred to any woman released from Manumission as Madame.

    The Lady noted Madame Durant's nod and gave the other woman a slight nod of greeting, politely. A slight extension of her hand gesturing towards an empty space at conversational distance invited the new Mekhet to the conversation.

    "Good evening, Priscus Quilz." She grates, giving a nod to him as befitting his new position in his Family. An approving look entered her dark eyes at the respect that he afforded her. For all the rocky start, he was behaving quite well now. Perhaps he needed to feel he represented his Family?
    She may not be Invictus, but the pressure of her education prompted her to make an introduction. Ideally, it would be the youngest or less respected Kindred who would introduce the two. She was unsure if either would follow the form - again, no Invictus.

    "May I introduce Priscus Horatio Quilz, member of the Ordul Dracul and Priscus of the line Mekhet."

    Dark eyes observed him a moment before moving to the unknown Kindred.

    Edward descended into Court, sporting a more reserved, albeit no less formal, wardrobe: a black suit, black dress pants, and a red paisleyed vest. The single flash of gold came from a pair of cuff links; the clan colour on display was certainly red.

    The new faces' weakness drew the Beast's ire before the Man had a chance to notice the two new faces. New to him, at least.

    Blue? All black? Tasteless. Mekhet. And then the other. She had the kind of youthful beauty that made Edward suspect age, although her blood implied otherwise. It was hard to predict a clan or covenant.

    Edward bowed to Jennifer, smiling as he saw her scarf, and nodded to Horatio, but did not intrude upon the group with the new faces. With two Prisci and two new faces, it was more like than not that they would separate to conduct acknowledgment, and it simply would not do to be left alone.

    Instead, he allowed some space and waited to see who else would arrive.

    Maeve looks down, noting that her shoes were liked, which makes her smile a little bit. Wait, she was being serious right? Brain, keep working. "Thanks! Better to quietly skulk around in when need be." she nods again at the introduction, "Oh, sweet. The names Maeve. Nice to meet'cha, Lady Hazelton. Or do you prefer the whole title?"

    Her gaze turns to her new Priscus, "A ha! Just the person I needed to find. Priscus Quilz... is that your preferred way to be called?" she awkwardly points to herself, "I'm Maeve, a Mekhet, new to the city and all that jazz. Oh, uh, also unaligned." She hoped that wouldn't be a problem. Usually it wasn't, but you never know.

    Quinn turned a bit sharply, looking directly at Edward Heinrich as he entered court. Her beast stirring her to a painful awareness. She watched him closely as the beast and the woman tussled inside, and yet in the end it quieted. For now of course. There was still many Kindred to get acquainted with after all...

    Quinn, for a moment, regretted not going over initially, but with the addition of Mr. Quillz to their mixer over there, she felt resolute in her decision not to assert herself with the newcomer. Giving them more space to conduct Maeve's introduction, just like her introduction had occurred last court. Instead she decided to introduce herself to the other.

    Quinn's sensible flats made no noise over the polished floors as she approached Edward Heinrich. She stopped at a comfortable conversational distance. She smiled demurely. "Good evening. We have not had a proper introduction. I am Quinn Durant of clan Mekhet, a Dragon of the Ordo Dracul. I apologize for not introducing myself last court but it was rather late in the evening, and all I had time for was my own acknowledgement to go through."

    Court. Again. He wasn’t which was worse, the idea of having to do this over and over again until it became normal, or that it would remain the emotional stressor it was right now.

    JC had tried to prepare himself as best he could but it was as usual never quite enough. The deep primal emotions flared as he entered the private Kindred of the Nox. Even holding back the mindlessness didn’t stop his more mortal mind from being infected. Irrational paranoia threatened his thoughts just as much as the Beast’s fear. Even if he didn’t give into the urge to rip out Quinn’s throat, he still had to also fight back the urge to threaten her.

    The Savage wore the best he had, which was still nothing compared to what the others had, even the newer faces in the room. Still, he did his best not to let their opinions trouble him. There was more to fitting in than just clothes.

    JC remained a little aloof for now, sitting on one of the dark leather seats. He watches and listens intently to the various conversations, while doing his best not to scream.
