The Secret Garden
Bearers of the Belt of Lud
This cabal’s name is often shortened to the less-respectful Belters. They draw their name – so they claim – from the ancient regalia of King Lud, which they purport to hold possession of. Rumours persist that the Belters are using the M25 as the focal rune in a spell of alarming magnitude, but to what end, none could say (although evidence suggests that it monitors the Avatars of all who cross it, alerting the cabal when mages enter London). The Belters control London’s most powerful Node (and several others) at Saint Paul’s Cathedral.
In an alternate timeline, the Belters were a minor cabal in London, where they were confined to the regions of Greater London and the city’s wider green belt. In this one, they are its most powerful.
