But Simocatta was saved through the blood of the Keeper of Faith, who saw him to useful than letting him simply die. He worked in the Library of the Forgotten, but he never felt at home in the underground crypts. As a result, he was retrained to act as an agent of both his sire and the Dracon. He was sendt into the Holy Land following the upheveal of the crusades in order to alert his sire of recent developments, cultivating a network of spies and informants that stretched over the whole Middle East.
