Our Fair City
Assamites are hired assassins or bodyguards- not commonly seen, not easily trusted, and very deadly (also, at least tenuously affiliated with Talia)
The Assamites do not hold dominion over any large section of the city, and there is only one known Assamite who has made her home here. Given Talia’s apoliticality, she chooses to hold dominion over a very small portion of the city and not an entire pie slice. More land = more responsibility, politics, etc. Since she’s not technically Camarilla, it is assumed that she has some unstated understanding with the Prince. If he ever gives her an order or edict, she would absolutely obey, but in return he understands that he should never, ever give her an order or enforce any trivial edicts upon her. That is what has been assumed by those with some political acumen, at least. What the real truth is is anyone’s guess.
