Its inscription—“The Union Must and Shall be Preserved”—was an added (and locally unwelcome) sentiment by General Butler, the Yankee commander of the occupying force in 1862. According to rumor, Butler’s afterthought was spurred on by one of Vidal’s agents, whose master wanted to remind the lady Pascual that, elder Primogen or no, she was not the Prince of New Orleans. The story could be apocryphal, of course, given the relations between Vidal and Pascual’s heir, but it’s always good for a recounting at Elysium.
This is partly due to Vidal’s religious beliefs regarding the soul but also to cover up his own act of diablerie during the ritual he performed with Cimitiere. On the rare occasions that Vidal calls a citywide blood hunt, he does so by summoning all available Kindred to court and then performing Last Rites in absentia over the subject of the hunt. The message is, to put it bluntly, unmistakable. Deference and Presentation Unsurprisingly, Vidal and his policies are strict indeed on these particular customs.
Vidal, however, has dangled a fairly enticing carrot before them. Kindred who make regular confessions, so long as they are honest and detailed, often receive forgiveness for their crimes, rather than punishment . The risk they take, of course, is that the Kindred have no way of knowing which crimes can be forgiven, and which are serious enough that an admission, even within the bounds of the confessional, will lead to punishment. The line of demarcation varies, depending on whether Vidal or one of his followers is hearing the confession, on what sort of mood the Kindred is in, on whether the crime has had any repercussions for Vidal’s rule, and so forth.
