Despite the general impressions the other sects (and the Camarilla in particular) are giving, the Anarchs do have some form of organizational structure. Of course, the structure is somewhat looser than their Camarilla or Sabbat counterparts, but it does exist. Only in contrast to the Camarilla and the Sabbat (to lesser extend), there is no strict hierarchy of power within the Anarch society. Groups of vampires often form up within a few weeks, but easily dissolve at the same rate as well.
There are a number of loose positions within the Anarch society, although often different nomenclature is used depending on the geographical area:
- Barons are the (informal) rulers of an Anarch domain, but often wield not the same power or authority as a Prince or an Archbishop. They try to uphold some sort of peace within their domain and act as mediators, and therefore often try to moderate conflict than enforcing a particular policy.
- Emissaries are the diplomats or middlemen when it comes to negotiating a truce or dealing with other political groups in general. An emissary can be appointed by a Baron, but more often an Anarch group “elects” an emissary from its own ranks to strike a deal with a neighboring Camarilla Prince or trying to negotiate a longer lasting non-aggression pact with a group of Garous.
- Sweepers are responsible for gathering information who’s in a given territory of an Anarch domain. They usually forward this information to a Baron or other Anarch groups of influence, to avoid unnecessary violence or other unpleasant surprises. Sweepers are often not very popular, because most Anarchs view the Sweepers as snitches, while other Anarchs regard the Sweeper’s activity as a necessary evil to keep violence low and limit the influence of other sects.
- The Chameleons are moles who infiltrate groups of vampires outside of Anarch territory and trying to get into positions of power there. They may or may not be involved in intrigues or acts of sabotage, but they will provide information on what they hear and see to other Anarchs.
