Vinnie is a Powerful Psychic Manipulator, and is raising a Cult. He intends to use this as a recruiting base for his personal army.
He has claimed a small area to the North-West of Patricia's turf.

Dr Watt is studying the Secrets of Psychic Power, particularly Blood Magic. He would like to use this knowledge to 1) Position himself high in the Bleeder Power Structure. 2) Dismantle the current Bleeder Power Structure.
He has a Secret laboratory in Southern turf.

Mack is a Powerful Psychic Sensor and Medium (and not a weak Manipulator). He has several students and wishes to climb the greasy pole to Power within the Bleeders.
he has claimed an area to the West of Patricia's turf.

Grendel is a powerful Combatant and Slinker. She has positioned herself as Voodoo Liaison (giving her a good deal of control over them), and is opening a Voodoo temple/dojo, in the very North of turf, to gain recruits.

All of the party are very strong in personal Combat. Few are able to challenge them one-on-one.

Mack and Dr W's Blood Memory/Sampling means they can have a great deal of Skills at their disposal. Between Vinnie's cult, the Voodoo Exchange Students, Ben's supplies and targeted individuals, it is only Exotic/Rare skills that cannot be gained relatively quickly.
Vinnie is less powered in this area, and needs more Blood, of higher Competency.

Internal Politics:
No-one likes you, as they cannot control you.
You have a good working relationship with Patricia (despite Emily).
Sabine and Leatherhead respect your Border Control efforts.
Terence ("The Geek") has opened dialogue, but his motives are dubious.
Sophie ("The Artist") is accessible, but of unknown allegiance.
RJF are probably the nearest to Allies.
Swan is always happy to discuss Tactics.

What Power? The Power of Voodoo! Who Do? You Do!
If I have it right, Vinnie and Mack have started to learn Blood-based Voodoo Magic.
Kanto/Ghouls. Mind-Field. etc.
Hexametric Ice said this would be a Game-Changer for the City.
Is Grendel moving along this path? (Voodoo or Blood?) Papa and Mama suggest she should.

External Relations
Few contacts.
A few names-and-numbers in Math Addict.
A supply of Blood from Humankalor.
Tiff-Ann-EE (Orphans), who warned of Skin Borgs.
Vinnie has some minor Day Shift contacts.

Students/Minions
Vinnie: 2 Students (Level 1). 6 "interested" Independents (2 lvl 2, 4 lvl 1). 30 Cultists (4 potential recruits).
Mack: 8 Students (1 lvl 3, 3 lvl 2, 4 lvl 1. Recruited from Independents)
Dr W: 2 Students (lvl 2. Medical Specialisation). 2 Minions (Medical. 1 Computer Modeller)
Grendel: None, but dojo and voodoo can provide manpower if needed. Possibly Bethany (old, ex-Freedom Army?).

Overall Position
With your personal Power, political connections, manpower and reputation, you hold serious sway amongst the Bleeders.
Few would challenge you openly (although any may move against you covertly/politically).

Summary
Lower Harlem is yours for the taking!
The main questions are How you do it, and What do you do with it! (Also, Who you take with you).

Please supply any additions/corrections.

How: Velvet Revolution. Make the existing power structures irrelevant to the Greater Cult.
What : Take over the World!. No Really.
Who we take with us? Everyone ( for certain values of Everyone)

How. Rise in the existing structure, taking the opportunities as they appear. Establish a new pyramid/voodoo network

What. Establish a benevolent dictatorship. Root out corruption and exploitation.

Who. Those of a like mind, although all pyramids have a single point.....

UPDATE:

Blaine is out of action, and Mack (along with the rest of the PCs) is intending to replace him .

Jancie is the only Master that knows this.

Other Masters may soon realise that something is amiss.
(You know that Blaine has other Masters' Samples. On hearing about Blaine, Masters may use their Samples of Blaine to do a Blood Read, or get a Student to, if they fear he is dead, to assess his health.)

The Hospital:
Dr Watt has secured you all jobs at the hospital (albeit temporary, but this can be changed).
Dr Watt already knows of quite a few Minions, and the Code/Cryo will reveal more.
Details of Blaine's plans are sketchy, but with your resources, corralling the Minions to -your- plans should not be too hard.

UPDATE:
Blaine's Babes have taken over Blaine's Empire while Blaine is Out-of-Action.
No-one has been told what is up with Blaine, but some Masters* may have used Blood to try to find out.

Mack has been busy (missing Sessions!) sorting out the Empire.
Mr Henderson has supplied some useful info.
"B's Bs" have Major access to the Hospital and it's staff. Not complete, and try to keep things subtle ...
Overall, the Empire is running OK, but as it wasn't a smooth hand-over, and there are weather problems, there are some issues.
Takings are down, a few minor Players have jumped ship**, a couple of opportunities missed.

In general, Masters are waiting to see how well "B's Bs" are running things. There is some friction.
Some "independents" you have used to keep Blaine's turf going are probably working for Terrence. They are doing a good job, following your instructions well.
A potential land-grab north of Jancie has been taken by Sophie***.

Waiting to see how the New Voodoo situation pans out.

Water Rats have changed their tactics. With parts of the Sunken City frozen over, and the water too cold even for them, they have been forced on-shore. Like everyone else, they are short on supplies, and getting desperate.

Anything else you need to know?


*Who has Blaine's blood? You don't know, and it's rude to ask.
**Tonka, a Hummingbird contact (no Blood) is not returning calls. Saska, a Lvl 2 "independent" Bleeder (10 Blood available) is now 'openly' working for Patricia.
***Initially, denial that she knew anything about Blaine's plan to take control. Then justification that she was better placed to run it. Anger if pushed.
