Not precisely allies or contacts, your retainers are servants, assistants or other people who are your loyal and steadfast companions; for whatever reasons, supernatural or not. You must maintain some control over your retainers, again through means supernatural or not, as they are not blindly loyal no matter what. If pressed too hard or treated badly, they may turn on you. Retainers may be useful, but they shoulder never be flawless. A physically powerful ghoul might be rebellious, inconveniently dull-witted or lacking in practical skills. A loyal manservant might be physically weak or possess no real personal initiative or creativity.
