The Ensanglante was old as the city itself. The first settlers who arrived in the area of New Bordeaux found an hostile territory, and some of them, probably influenced by black Voodoo, adopted unethics practices, including human sacrifice.
As some point, the Ensanglante was led by Braxton Harless, a Confederate general who ruled the Ensanglante, and probably the all city, until 1916, when during an arson at the Opera House, he was killed together one hunded followers. After that episode, the Ensanglante lost his power and was forced to move in the Bayou Fantom for decades. However, with the troubles of the 1960s, the growing Hippie movement and drug consuption, the Ensanglante reappeared in city, led by Bonnie Harless, the descendant of Braxton. Bonnie believed who the last in the Harless line, Anna McGee, was chosen to birth the One who was supposed to purified the world by unworthies. However, the Lincoln Clay intervention put down the cult, killing many acolytes, the High Priest, and finally Bonnie Harless and her higher followers. With the death of all its prominent members, the Ensanglante was finally destroyed.
The Ensanglante worship an entity called Pere Sanglant. The forms of veneration included offering fruits, vegetables and human blood. The human sacrifice was also a common practice. The members of the cult believed that offering blood to Pere Sanglant, their sins would was purified. The Ensanglante thought that humanity was doomed to distruction, but after the Apocalypse, the Seed, a messianic figure, will rule the survived ones who would was faithful to the cult.
The Well-Borns were the upper class of the Ensanglante, composed by members of the oldest and wealthiest families of New Bordeaux, including the Harless family. The Well-Borns were exectially white supremacist who hated "inferior" races like blacks.
The Filth were the people reputed unworthies to live. The black people are commonly considerated "filth" and it was a common practice of the cultists kidnap black persons and sacrifice them to the Pere Sanglant.
