Manila By Night
The Bastion dominates the local Consilium and is perhaps the oldest of Manila’s mage cabals, tracing its lineage to the days of the Spanish colonization of the islands. Dominated by the thearchs and mystagogues, the Bastion considers the safeguarding of old Manila’s places of power and the supernatural landscape as its prime focus. The Bastion once wielded enormous mystical power to back up its political importance, but the devastation caused by the Liberation of Manila damaged or destroyed numerous Hallows and other places of power that the Bastion depended on. Still, the Bastion is a force to be reckoned with, and they serve as caretakers of the local Atheneum (National Museum? considering).
The Bastion takes as its inspiration the Walled City of Intramuros, the center of Spanish power during the colonial era, and previous members of the Bastion were instrumental in the creation of the Intramuros Administration.
