The fallen affiliate themselves, either officially or simply by the nature of their natural belief structures, within Factions of so-called "political" ideals. Each faction has its own set of ideas about humanity, the fallen, Lucifer and the Almighty, and each Faction has a different concept in mind for how those things on the list should be dealt with. Some await Lucifer's return, ready and willing to continue serving him. Some think Lucifer has been turned into nothingness. Some believe he abandoned the fallen altogether. Some just don't care either way.

A demon's faction determines his mindset in the way a Kindred's road or path of enlightenment determines his moral structure. A faction is arguably more important than a House, since a House is not chosen by the demon - a faction is.
