A Very Brief History of the City (both Kine and Kindred)
In the early 1700s Cacibajagua was a port town, and not even known by that name. This was during the time when Florida was under control of Spain, France and Great Britian. The port was used as another exploratory jumping point. The Ais tribe or possibly the Jeaga tribe was in the area at the time. When the port developed into a town, a miscommunication between the Spanish and the Native Americans lead to the area being called "Cacibajagua" - which actually means Black Cave.
The nearby town of Fort Pierce was built there with it's own port, partially due to complaints of strange things, ghosts, odd beasts, deaths and disappearances around Cacibajagua. The Native Americans were pretty adamant about keeping people out of the caves, without offering much in the way of explanation. It was assumed it was part of some "religious rite". Tension between the Native Americans and the settlers would rise at times, when people who did venture into the caves would sometimes disappear, die of strange diseases, or be found mutilated. This would lead the settlers to suspect foul play at the hands of the natives.
In the 1800s the port town started to grow into an actual city. Partially to act as a civilian area for the nearby Fort Pierce during the Seminole wars, partially because local Ventrue were looking to make their mark. With Kindred influence, the port town has grown to a bustling mid-sized city.
