Sunshine Alley Status Ranks

Since the time before Cruz’s reign the residents of Sunshine Alley have always ascribed to strict tiers of rights and permissions. The various princes have gone by different terms and titles, the ranks have been consistent for over a hundred years.

Rank 1 – Resident/Associate/Greenhorn

The first tier in the society. Vampires and kindred of this rank enjoy the privileges and rights of being a member of the Sunshine society. They do not have any additional privileges, and can expect to me treated more as freeloaders than equals.

Rank 2 – Citizen/Soldari/Local

At the second tier, the elders have acknowledged the kindred as a contributing member of society. While the elders expectations have risen, they’re also now willing to grant audiences to younger kindred. This is also the lowest rank that has ever been granted permission to

Rank 3 – Patrician/Capo/Homesteader

At this rank, the Kindred finally has leave to establish his own domain and holdings within the prince’s realm. While they could expect some minor parcel granted to them, depending on their relationship with the Prince, truly impressive holdings have to be acquired and secured on by the Vampires own merits.

Rank 4 – Senex/Underboss/Deputy

Never a rank that the Prince gives out lightly, kindred who have attained this rank are eligible to hold political offices. They can also expect to be consulted along with the other elders for any major decisions made by the Prince. A vampire of this rank can granted another lesser vampire the 2nd rank of status.

Rank 5 – Prince

The rank held by the Prince alone. The Prince holds the privileges of granting permission to embrace, granting domains, and officiating the increase or decrease of a local kindred’s status.
