An official position within the Vampire Nation, an Archon is a ruler or lord. Taken from the same word as monarch. Daemoni are the only Bloodline to hold this position, most commonly used to describe a vampire who enforces the laws of the Vampire Nation, the Cruor Dextor. Although no vampire may take a life of another without the approval of the Vampire Nation, an Archon may take a life for any violation, regardless of how large or small. Unlike other positions of authority, an Archon only answers to the Council of Shadows.
