Some younger vampires want nothing to do with organizations like the Camarilla or Sabbat, and want to remain from their control. They specifically reject the Camarilla’s top down power structure, but unlike the Sabbat, they believe in the Masquerade. All clans are represented in their ranks, but most are Brujah or Caitiff.
Despite their protestations, the Camarilla view the Anarchs as a part of them. The Camarilla view the Anarchs as insignificant, but believe they could pose a threat if allowed to fester. Elders gladly promote the misconception that the Anarchs are a nihilistic group. Older vampires tend to view the Anarchs as boorish, rude, ill disciplined, ignorant, and frightfully naive.
Out in California, the Anarchs have created the “Anarch Free State.” Most Kindred, aside from the Anarchs, do not think it will last long.
