This is based off the series of books called the Black Dagger Brotherhood. The black dagger sisterhood are a group of female vampires that are selected for either their strength, intellect, or another reason.
It's present day in Dallas. The Brotherhood and Sisterhood have their own Mansion, they tend to stay together, and some of them fight quiet a bit. They get calls from anonymous people that give them tips where Lessers are chasing civilian vamps. They always appear before the normal vampire is hurt, or killed. Sometimes either a Brother or Sister are killed, though other times the Scribe Virgin brings them back.
There are only a select members of the Brotherhood, not as many as there should be, the guys can either pick to be a member of the Brotherhood or a member of the human world.

The Black Dagger Sisterhood are highly trained vampire warriors who protect their species against the Lessening Society. As a result of selective breeding within the race, sisters possess immense physical and mental as well as rapid healing capabilities. They are not siblings for the most part, and are inducted into the Sisterhood upon nomination by the sisters. Aggressive, self-reliant, and secretive by nature, they exist apart from civilians, having little contact with members of the other classes except when they need to feed. They are the subjects of legend and the objects of reverence within the vampire world. They may be killed only by the most serious of wounds. E.g. a gunshot, or stab to the heart, neck, or head, ect. Salt crushed into a wound is the only way to leave a permanent scar.
