Vitel is a paranoid control freak of the first order, evidence that Marissa was involved with his sire, along with his acquisition of a magical clasp that makes it surprisingly easy for him to masquerade as a Ventrue (Lasombra do not cast reflections, but Vitel's clasp allows him to do so), as well as his rapid rise to power have all made him certain that he is the pawn in some deeper struggle. Vitel rules D.C. to a degree that no other Prince dares (although he does not control the U.S. government, the Camarilla would squash him if that happened), and is planning to use his influence to eventually launch a nuclear war that will allow him to reconstruct the world in his image. When the Sabbat under the leadership of Sascha Vykos seized D.C in 1998, Vitel was able to flee an attack of the Tzimisce and her thrall, the Assamite Parmenides (apparently, his ruse was so complete that not even the Sabbat knew his true identity). He later attended the Conclave of Camarilla princes that discussed further steps following the rise of the Ravnos Antediluvian. Vitel proposed amassing weapons of mass-destrcution and actively preparing for Gehenna, in a manner similar to the Sabbat and his own preparations for the nuclear war. His current whereabouts are unknown.
