A World of Darkness
Tzimisce Regent of the Sabbat
Regent Gorchist was the primary signatory of the Purchase Pact of 1803, which ended the First Sabbat Civil War and focused the sect’s (and Gorchist’s) attentions away from Europe and toward the Americas. During his travels through the Americas to drum up support for the Purchase Pact, he installed Francisco Domingo de Polonia as the first Archbishop of New York, to the continued frustration of New York’s sitting Bishop, Ecaterina the Wise.
Gorchist was assassinated in 1863, during the American Civil War and the aftermath of the French invasion of Mexico; his assassination sparked the Second Sabbat Civil War.
