Mexico City was known in the modern nights as the spiritual centre of the Sabbat, but this was not always the case. In the time of the Aztecs, the deified vampire Huitzilopochtli and his clique of similar supernaturals had their resting places in Tenochtitlan, fed by the sacrifices by their personal priesthood. When the Sabbat arrived along the first Spaniards, they fought against Huitzilopochtli's clique and ostensibly managed to drive them away or slay them. At first, Lasombra, using their ties to the Spaniards, used to claim the city as their domain, defending the city and New Spain in general against encroachment from the Setites and Giovanni, who were major players in the lucrative slave trade of the area. When the Lasombra were distracted by territorial conflicts, the Camarilla used the opportunity to use ghoul proxies to insert themselves in the city, slowly wresting control away from the Lasombra while attacking the financial backers of the Lasombra contacts within Spain itself. In 1767, the Jesuits were expelled from the city by order of King Charles III, robbing the Lasombra of their main asset in the city, who blamed the Tzimisce. Arguments got out of control and resulted in the First Sabbat Civil War, who was used by a happy Camarilla to install their first prince in Mexico City. Their rule, however, was shortlived, after their main linchpin, Charles III, had died and his successor had declared war on France, wasting resources that the Camarilla had needed for stabilizing their hold on Mexico City. In 1793, most of the important Camarilla Kindred had abandoned the city, leaving only a skeleton crew of witless childer behind to hold their backs.
The Sabbat in Mexico City is divided into several packs that claim different quarters of the city as their territory. At least 13 major packs roam the city, and many more come and go every night, merely paying a visit or destroying themselves in monomacies. Above the packs stands the Consistory, a body made up of various Cardinals and Prisci from all Sabbat dioceses around the world. Not every member of the Consistory, however, attends every meeting. The permanent members of the Consistory maintain offices that would rather be guessed in a Camarilla city, however, the higher Sabbat ranks are fully aware of the threat that a major breach of the Masquerade would pose for the sect. As a result, they try to minimize the damage done to it by younger packs by influencing and lobbying the authorities, often with force. The Tzimisce have a family branch of Grimaldi - the Salamanca- settled within the city to aid the Sabbat in its endeavour. Above them stands the Regent, who is protected by at least one Seraph who remains within Mexico City to act as her bodyguard.
