Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Wiki

A Plague for the Angels is a quest available in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.


In the Chantry, Strauss will give this quest if the Fledgling is working with the Camarilla. This quest can be done concurrently with More Fun With Pestilence if the Fledgling is working with both the Anarch and Camarilla factions at this point, and agrees to work with both on the problems.



  1. Go to the Building with the same symbol as the flyer found in the final plague-carrier's residence.
  2. Turn the flyer over to the man at the front desk.
  3. Head upstairs; optionally, comfort or terrorize the young girl who provides information on the cult
  4. Fight through or evade mobs of infected cultists
  5. Break through the floor in two of the bedrooms (one is right below the other)
  6. Make your way to Bishop Vick's lair.
  7. Speak to him. There is no option to side with him, though you can try to do so.
  8. Defeat Vick and his infected minions.(Experience Rewarded (Icon).png 1 EXP)
  9. Return to the lobby of the cult and report back to Strauss.(Experience Rewarded (Icon).png 1 EXP) Strauss may also offer a $250 cash reward or the Bloodstar talisman, depending on player choice.

  • It is possible to kill Bishop Vick with relative ease by first dealing with his minions, while avoiding his wild gunfire. Once they are dealt with, run to the overturned table in the southwest corner of the room and crouch behind it. Vick will run around the table but will not attack from behind and is unable to effectively flank and damage the player, who can then pop up from cover at their leisure and defeat him with little personal damage. A shotgun is a good choice for this in terms of pure damage, though as Vick moves relatively little in this situation any handgun or ranged ability should make for a quick and easy boss fight.
  • (True as of Unofficial Patch 9.5 - never attempted on earlier versions) The zombified minions in the boss room can be fed upon, but their blood is diseased, forcing the player character to vomit and lose some of the blood points earned by feeding. However, no health is lost when vomiting, so taking cover from Vick and taking the chance to feed can be a viable option when low on HP.
