Full Name: Prince Mikael Nyqvist
Mikael came to power during the main invasion of Minneapolis, after he and his clan took control of managing the Twin Cities’ mortal agencies (news, police, political, etc). Never before was it quite as clear what degree of control the clan had over such groups – indeed, most were profoundly shocked, as the Nosferatu have traditionally shown no interest in such things as a whole. Their massive collection of dirty secrets proved potent enough, and was coupled with a strategic alliance of a few elder Ventrue to great effect during the siege – complete news blackouts and police non-intervention were nearly a nightly occurrence that was managed for almost a month. Mikael stormed out of what seemed to be nowhere, usurping the position of the clan’s Primogen and then taking the reins of the city after the former prince died and Jimmy (the previous favorite) declined the honor.
His power grew tremendously when the Sabbat managed to storm the haven of the Prince of St. Paul and Julius merged the two fiefs.
