The Nosferatu treat the Nictuku seriously; part of their fondness for sewers is because they build these underground havens into massive fortresses, complete with gun emplacements and embankments on the lower levels. The Nosferatu information exchange tools, up to and including ShreckNET, are intended to exchange Nictuku sightings.
According to the Masquerade of the Red Death Trilogy by Robert Weinberg (WW12400 - WW12401 - WW12402), the Nictukus were created by the founder of the Nosferatu clan to destroy his Childer. The Antediluvian hopes that Caine will remove the curse upon him and that he will be as beautiful as he once was.
It appears that, for a non-evocated reason, the Nictukus turned to sleep mode and, still according to the Weinberg's Vampire cosmogony, their awakening can be interpreted as the first step of the Gehenna.
In Clanbook: Nosferatu Revised, Baba Yaga, the Witch, seems to be dead. If we still refer to the Red Death Trilogy, Azazel is destroyed by a Mage, and She Who Screams In Darkness is buried under the Opera of Paris in the previous Lair of the Nosferatu Fantomas.
