"Cause power has to be shared. You'll understand soon enough"
She bares her neck.
"Just get it over with. Gotta say I enjoyed these last few nights. No hard feelings"
He begins to feed.
He begins to feed.
Memories, emotions, thoughts and plans flood into Lysander. And new powers, they'll take a while to gain full command of.
But one fact sticks out.
Jacqueline knew of the prophecy. She was the last in a line of warriors devoted to ensuring that no vampire was ever too strong. There would be a leader, the alpha sure, but not the insane blood gods that the clan founders were. The African clans had never allowed any vampire, even the founders to reach this strength. Jacqueline had been sent, the last of her kind, to America to use the prophecy to restore balance to the American clans.
The one ability Lysander feels blossom in him there and then. An ancient blood ritual Jacqueline had been working on for decades. It just needed a powerful enough vampire to use it. Jacqueline had originally hoped Lysander would do it after being forced to feed from Cock Robin or Clarissa.
But this was good enough.
Lysander need only release the discipline from his blood and Lasombra's strength would be ripped from him. Redistributed into all of the Lasombra clan across America. Balance restored.
Jacqueline's last words echo into his mind.
"It'll leave you the strongest Lasombra out there. A good deed and you get to be top dog with all that power you crave. Not bad huh?"
Lysander contemplates for a moment.
Lasombra shouldn't even be here. It was only because of him that he still existed. And he had had to answer for that with another power.
It would be so...easy. Restoring balance. He liked Jacqueline enough to grant her last request.
He turns to La-Som-Bheu.
'Thank you blood father. You have helped me achieve my goals. But now... I say farewell.'
He releases the discipline.
Nostro is fighting off some of the Sabbat beneath the flickering lights of the silversmith's shop. Glass cases shattered, the odd dead ghoul and staked vamp lie thrown through the displays or the window. Others lie slumped on the street outside.
Cock Robin's body had been restored just a few moments ago. The two of them were fighting back to back. Twelve Sabbat surrounding them.
"Christ kid for a neonate you fight well. Lysander teach you all this?" Cock Robin asks while drawing on a cigarette. "Look these chumps are small fry, but there's a chance you could be dealt some serious damage. So let me take the lead..."
Just then Cock Robin feels it, the dull pressure of a powerful dominate.
"RUN! LEAVE THE CITY AND NEVER COME BACK!" Nostro says. The Sabbat shovelheads drop their weapons and leg it.
"Fúck kid what was that. You were holding that back the whole time?"
"No...I just felt it within me all of a sudden...I don't understand..."
Cock Robin closes his eyes and tunes his senses.
"Oh yes you do kid. Get to my car..."
Nostro looks outside to the car sitting in the rain.
"...we gotta go meet the new Prince. Don't worry I've a feeling you'll like him"
Confused Nostro picks up a nice looking silver Swiss watch. "Always wanted one of these"
He then heads out with Cock Robin.
End of Part Three.
Part Four to come soon.

Minor updates for characters we've never met:
There will be a lot of updates for the LA primogens, but that's more suited for Part IV itself rather than here.
