The War of Blood refers to the underground conflict between the [[Sabbat]] under [[Mordred]] and the [[Black Hand]] under the [[Antediluvian]]s. They fought a cold war between their agents from 2203 to 2255 while both were simultaneously hunted by [[Earth Federation]] [[Crusader Team]]s.

[[Gehenna]] caused the rise of the [[antediluvian]]s, but many of them were eventually destroyed by the [[Tech Infantry]]. Those that survived retreated to the [[Umbra|Wraithlands]], cementing their control over those [[vampire]]s that survived the apocolypse. [[Mordred]], a fourth-generation [[vampire]], had gone into hiding rather than serve the antediluvians. Meanwhile, his enemies solidified their control over the vampire community. In 2196, the [[Black Hand]] makes a deal with the [[Earth Federation]] to allow ghouls to join the Tech Infantry. In exchange, they take ownership of a system (later called [[Enoch]]) on the rim of known space. Two years later, when the Wraithlands become uninhabitable thanks to the [[Bug ]]Asteroid that wiped out [[Earth]], the antediluvians moved out and formed the [[Kingdom of Enoch]].

With the [[Black Hand]] leadership on the Rim, [[Mordred]] made his move. Quickly gathering many vampire dissidents who opposed the antediluvians, Mordred reformed the [[Sabbat]], and began challenging vampire controlled areas within the [[Earth Federation]]. This led to more defections, which caused [http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Ventru_%28Antediluvian%29 Ventrue], the King of [[Kingdom of Enoch|Enoch]] to declare Mordred a wanted criminal, and offer a high price for his heart. Ventrue also encouraged his allies in the Fed to hunt for Mordred as well, including the recently rescued [[Bruce von Eisenstein]]. In 2201, von Eisenstein found him and attempted to capture the wily [[vampire]], only to be destroyed in turn. Mordred fled to [[Wilke's Star]] and formed a new headquarters there.

Gathering his strength, he decided to turn the manhunt against [http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Ventru_%28Antediluvian%29 Ventrue]. Leaking information that [[Mordred ]]was on [[Wilke's Star]] with a strong army, [http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Ventru_%28Antediluvian%29 Ventrue][[Ventrue | ]]himself came along with the 10th [[Tech Infantry]] Legion, manned solely by [[Black Hand]] ghouls. In 2203, this force proceeded to fight a vicious campaign on the planet and won, but the sacrifice of the [[Sabbat ]]army was part of the ruse. The conflict allowed [[Mordred ]]to reach [http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Ventru_%28Antediluvian%29 Ventrue], defeated him, and then [[Diablerie|diablerized ]]him, finally becoming an [[antediluvian ]]himself.

Outraged at the loss of their king, the new Queen of Enoch, [http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Toreador_Antediluvian Arikel], declared war on the [[Sabbat ]]by any means necessary. Of course, the use of a [[Tech Infantry]] legion by a foreign power finally broke the treaty between the [[Black Hand]] and the [[Earth Federation|Federation]], and ghouls were kicked out of the Fed military.

===Cold War===
[[Vampire]]s slaughtered each other throughout the Fed, often in public, terrorizing the citizenry. After several ships from the [[Kingdom of Enoch]] were caught sneaking through Federation space, the Grand Council realized that the War of Blood needed to be contained. In 2209, the [[Tech Infantry]] created the [[Crusader Team|Crusader division]], forcing both Black Hand and Sabbat adherents to be more discreet. So the hot war became a cold war, but no less vicious.

In 2225, [[Mordred ]]decided to eliminate the [[Black Hand]]'s interference in Fed affairs. He supported the [[The Resistance]] during the [[Earth Federation#2nd Civil War|2nd Civil War]], which led to the TI disasterous landing on [[Wilke's Star]], but makes the name of then Brigadier-General [[Sarah Dunmeyer]]. That eliminated the [[Sabbat]]'s active support in the human conflict, but the War of Blood continued on, led from that planet. In 2236, General [[Arthur Clarke]] is ordered to finally eradicate all vampires from the planet. [[Mordred ]]is assumed to have died, but actually remained dormant, hidden under a pile of rubble.

Now believed to be dead, Mordred was able to operate the Sabbat more effectively, without interference from [[Crusader Team]]s. By 2241, his operatives were on the move again, including [[Fabian Cortez]]. He was able to infiltrate many of the Harrington daughter corporations and built their influence over the Fed. Through secretly manuevering many bureaucrats through proxies, he was able to convince [[Earth Fleet]] to finally eliminate the vampire threat from the [[Kingdom of Enoch]]. In 2255, they used a [[Dooms Day Device]] on the [[Enoch ]]system, killing [http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Toreador_Antediluvian Arikel], and decapitating the [[Black Hand]] leadership. Without an antediluvian to serve, the organization fell apart, leaving Mordred supreme.

The War of Blood was the key behind the "Ring of Fire" campaign as well as [[Fabian Cortez]]'s plotline in Season 4.2, both run by Nathan Bax. Vampires have been rather marginalized in later campaigns.
