For a long time, the city of Atlanta has been a main point of supernatural activity, particularly among vampires and wraiths. The territories were under Camarilla control until the dramatic events of of June, 1999, when vampires of the Sabbat attacked the Elysium and destroyed most of its elders.
Atlanta was the first of many Camarilla cities that fell under the surprise coordinated attacks of the Black Hand in the late 90's. Many luminaries of the sect were destroyed in the initial attacks, including the powerful Brujah archon Julius and the primogen Eleanor, while Prince J. Benison Hodge went missing after the struggle. Curiously, the dreaded relic called the Eye of Hazimel appeared in the city right before the attack.
