15. The Brood Get Swallowed Up By The Ministry Of Darkness (February 1, 1999) Another gothic faction led by Gangrel became part of The Ministry Of Darkness in early-February. Initially, it seemed like they would feud against one another, but The Brood became the latest members in The Ministry. The story called for them to take punishment in order to be initiated. The alliance would only last a few months, and The Brood split from the group and would eventually feud against Mideon, Viscera and others. Gangrel, Christian and Edge were the only ones to break away from The Ministry Of Darkness during the setup of the storyline.
