Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Wiki

Fun With Pestilence is a quest available in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.


The quest can be acquired from two characters, either Damsel of the Anarchs at the Last Round or from Maximilian Strauss, the local Tremere regent, at the local chantry, as soon as the fledgling reaches the Downtown district. The quest can be done parallelly for both parties and rewards earned from both of them if it is kept a secret that the fledgling is already on this case for the other side.

This quest will be triggered for the first Plaguebearer regardless of whether it is Jezebel Locke or Brother Kanker. As such you can deal with Jezebel immediately and Brother Kanker later if preferred.



  1. Next to The Last Round talk to a homeless woman.
  2. Persuade her to tell you about the disease.
  3. Go to the alley across from The Last Round and talk to Tin Can Bill.
  4. Use a sewer entrance right at the end of the alley.
  5. Lockpick the iron door to reach the inner sanctum of the second plaguebearer or go left.
  6. Get closer to the crucified man in the main room to make Brother Kanker appear.
  7. Kill Brother Kanker. Experience Rewarded (Icon).png 1 EXP
  8. Push the switch to raise the bars and leave the sewers.
  9. Report back to Damsel.
