27 Dead Apostle Ancestors
The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors are the aristocratic elite of the vampires. The original group were those of the Dead Apostles who escaped from their role as the “emergency rations” of the True Ancestors. Some of the originals have been sealed away by the Church or have been annihilated, changing the leadership of the different factions throughout the generations as they have been replaced, while others still reign as Ancestors in the present era. They are very powerful beings, and many have the ability to utilize Reality Marbles. Their general rankings are not determined exclusively by how powerful he or she is individually, but rather the paramount danger he or she poses to humanity. Those within the first ten ranks cannot be defeated by normal concepts, as they themselves are fantasy, much like members of the Phantasmal Species, or non-human creatures of legend.
