The Strategoi are Ventrue that implement the will of the Ephorate within a specific geographic area set by their masters, much like the Justicars of the Camarilla (and with a similar freedom to interpret and act on them as they see fit). They guide the overall welfare of the clan in their territory. For the sake of loyalty to the Ephorate, Strategoi are not allowed to have any position within the Camarilla. However, the Strategoi itself is a position of prestige, and they are entitled to field agents known as Lictors.
Additionally, a Strategos is the only one able to know the identity of members of the Ephorate.
