| Author's Dedication|
This book is dedicated with love and gratitude to my parents: To my father, for the letter and the law. To my mother, for the wonder and the word.
Dedication on this book must also go out to the many who fought and died in the Middle East during its writing: With love, and the enduring hope that your sacrifices may at least help pave the way for lasting peace.
| Special Thanks|
I would be remiss if I did not give credit here where it is certainly due. First and foremost, very special thanks to my friend and mentor, Harry Heckel, who has given me more than he’ll ever know — most of which lies outside the scope of this project. And the most sincere of thanks to my two patron saints, Justin Achilli and James Estes Looking Eagle, without whose patience and support I never would have rounded the bend on this labor of love. To all the rest of you who have helped me along the way: You are not forgotten here, you are simply too many in number to mention by name.
But I thank you.

Introduction: The Pulse of MillenniaEdit
A summary of the book, a quick overview of the real Cairo and its people, a lexicon, and recommend books, music, and film to set and get a feel for the mood.
Chapter One: Sins of the Fathers: A History of CairoEdit
Because of Set, the kindred (and particularly the Followers of Set) have had a long-running hold in Cairo and Egypt in general. The history is greatly detailed from the ancient days to the coming of Islam and into modern nights.
Chapter Two: Blood and Sand: Geography and the UndeadEdit
The nine Cainite social zones of Cairo, or khittas, dictate how much of kindred society is run there. As always, however, there are those who don't want to follow the rules. Many of the khittas are run by one clan; alongside the Setites, other clans of note include the Assamites, Nosferatu, and Ventrue.
Chapter Three: Brothers in Arms: Pyramids of PowerEdit
Chapter Four: Dead Among the Dead: The Damned of CairoEdit
The famous and infamous kindred of Cairo, as well as information on the Thaumaturgy path Soul of the Serpent.
Chapter Five: Ummel-Dunya: Storytelling CairoEdit
Suggestions and tips on creating Cairo based chronicles, including major themes and ideas such as the Islamic religion, the mysteries of ancient Egypt, and the major influence of the Assamites and Setites.

The secret and ancient kindred who survive, biding their time for a takeover.
