The Order he founded, "Inquisitore", adheres to the old beliefs... the devils among us must be exposed and... chastened.
Daniel Holtz[src]

The Inquisitore was a traditionalist Catholic order founded by Monseigneur Rivalli, an excommunicated Roman Bishop. Its members were monks trained in hunting down vampires and demons, as well as torturing them. In 1771, they collaborated with the vampire hunter Daniel Holtz, an old friend of Rivalli, in capturing and torturing the vampire Angelus. However, Angelus was rescued by his lover Darla and a group of Roman vampires. In the ensuing fight a number of Inquisitore were killed.
