They call me Bishop Vick, Shepherd of the Damned, your midnight guide through our last days here on earth. Do you feel it, brother? The curtain being drawn back at last, drawn back by my hand, by the Brotherhood of the Ninth Circle!..

Gehenna? Judgment Day? The Apocalypse? Oh again, brother, you are too indoctrinated into the antiquated beliefs of this material world. There is no rhyme or reason, no all-powerful and terrible gods who watch over their children. You talk of disease... what about the disease that you and both carry, our flesh remade into nothing more than an abomination, feeding on our brothers and sisters like so many cattle? What god watched over me when that demon tore into my neck and made me into this monster you see before you?! No, brother. There is no god who would tolerate such a thing. And so I have become God, and the diseases I carry to the masses will bring about an end of my own making, until we have all journeyed below into the Ninth Circle.

Do you seek the truth? You've come to the right place! We've got more truth here than we can handle...

  — Bishop Vick
Bishop Vick is the leader of an apocalyptic vampire faction, the Brotherhood of the Ninth Circle, and a minor antagonist in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. He was destroyed by a hands of fledgling in 2004.

While Vick hates his vampiric nature and wishes to destroy everything, he is very competent in using vampire Disciplines . At some point in the past, Vick was Embraced by an unknown Toreador vampire. This Embrace left Vick with a trauma and a warped worldview. He is the final Brotherhood boss, in quest A Plague for the Angels, after his disciples Jezebel Locke and Brother Kanker have been killed. And, like them, he will try to convert fledgling to the Brotherhood. The protagonist cannot, however, comply. After the refusal, he will try to kill the fledgling with his Disciplines and his brainwashed zombies.


  • The title of Bishop is one used in the Sabbat to denote a leader of a certain area, much like the Anarch Baron. This suggests that The Brotherhood may be a Sabbat pack.
  • In the Clan Quest mod, he is a Malkavian and his use of Celerity is a result of Diablerie.
