Bishop is a title held by a Sabbat vampire, who serves or advises an Archbishop, or a vampire who maintains Sabbat influence in a city with aid of others of equal status.



Bishops are those immediately below the Archbishop but above Priests in Sabbat domains, with the same high level duties but much narrower scope.

A Bishop may be in charge of a single aspect of Cainite unlife in the domain, or they may be a more general spiritual leader, inquisitor against diabolism, military general, or any other specific aspect of Sabbat agenda.

Those who are in the know liken bishops to the primogen of the Camarilla, and some Sabbat domains that have no Archbishop are ruled by a council of Bishops instead.


Shrewd and savvy, the bishops administrate the nightly affairs of the Sabbat. Their duties include:

  • Advise their Archbishops;
  • Assist Archbishops in clan matters when necessary;
  • May remove the initiated status from a lower-ranked member of the Sabbat;
  • May promote or demote others of lower rank;
