Vampire application

General questions:

1. What comes to your mind when the word vampire arises? What is a vampire in a human view and what is it from a vampire's own view? How different are standard folklore and World of Darkness vampires?

  The word vampire itself, for me it reffers to the unlife of a mortal that takes part after one's death and taking his part under a curse called the "curse of Caine" in his unlife. This curse forces the now undead mortal to live his (un)life under the presure of a thirst for blood, be it human or animal the blood has to be consumed regularly for the mortal to live relatively properly with this curse. The curse also affects the human's body, his organs are athrophied in most of the cases and his body will be metaphorically frozen, practically he will not age anymore from the point of his embrace (which is the process of passing the curse further to another mortal). The curse itself started from the biblical character Caine which is depicted in the scene of killing his brother Abel. It is said that God himself cursed Caine with such a curse as a punishment for the said crime. It was later on added a few additions to the curse when Caine refused to take chance on his redemption from three angels when they offered it. One angel reacted to the refusal by adding the thirst for the blood. Another angel added an inner "demon" called "the beast" by many, this beast acts whenever a cursed childe of Caine is thirsty, angry or severly affected by any emotion. The beast tends to take control upon the body of a cursed one and satisfy his needs by ruthlessly killing any nearby living for calming down the thirst or whatever emotion is present in one's body. The last angel who offered redemption acted differently, adding the option of reaching the Golconda state. The Golconda is a state where a cursed human reaches a level of harmony with his mind and body enough to be satisfied with a low quantity of blood for a long period of time, Golconda is something rare within the vampire society because many vampires tend to give in to their darkest sides and adopt a rather evil impression upon themselves (there are cases of vampires who actively seek Golconda such as some of the Salubri).
 
  From a human's view the vampire is a much more simple concept, mostly a very powerfull being that feeds at night or some ugly monster who lurks the nights for virgin's blood, there are different views based on what the media suggests the audience to think. Yet from the vampire's point of view a vampire is a cursed being in most of the cases and some would give in to their dark nature and actually enjoy it. It varies a lot on their nature, clan and perceptions.
 
  Folklore vampires and World of Darkness vampires are not so different since I may like to think that World of Darkness embraced all types of vampires and brought them all in a single story. We have folklore stories of ugly vampires (Nosferatu, Samedi, Harbringers of Skulls etc.) and yet there are stories of very beautiful and seductive vampires (such as Toreadors etc.), you may hear of vampires being repulsed of garlic but in WoD there are only certain vampires that might be repulsed from garlic, there are more and more resemblances that you could think about all day because in WoD almost everything is possible. (The ones who own the "Repulsed by Garlic" flaw or those dominated to think so).

2. What kind of consequences could possibly arise were a vampire be outed to the general public? What sort of action would be taken by various governments and the people? For this reason, do you think vampires should take the chance of coming out clean or should they rather stay hidden?

  Most of the vampires are preffering the blood of the living human beings and for this reason most of them are tending to reach places of high population. Helped by their human appearance that was kept ever since their embrace took part in their life and mostly by their humanity (more or less), they can infiltrate easily into almost any society and they have to, mostly. Once infilitrated into a society, a vampire has more advantages than one who hasn't, for example he has food at his discretion, people wandering around the streets are easy preys for many, others might take advantage on the human's influence, power, abilities therefore they are manipulated and used as tools for one's purposes. Others might find subjects for embrace when they feel like creating a childe of their own or even for ghoulification. But all of these come with a price, you have to make sure that you're staying hidden especially if you play a character that does respects the Masquerade because if you don't you can get in some serious troubles, if you're being outed to the public you might trigger the unwanted attention and you're going to be labeled as a Masquerade breaker and depending on the severity, the highest consequences for you will be a "Blood Hunt", let alone the potential of being hunted by the local hunters, inquisition, the government and the media might bring a lot of trouble not only to you but to the vampire society that resides in the vicinity of your deed because they could start an alert, throw news about vampires, form tactical trained teams to hunt down the vampires, in short you can provoke chaos, also other supernaturals might want to protect identity of supernaturals from the mortals and may act upon you.

In my opinion the vampires should do whatever they're meant to do, Sabbat could go out and do whatever they're meant to do and the Camarilla should play their cards right to stay hidden and safe from the mortal's eye. If this question refers to the safety of the vampires my answer is going to be "yes, stay hidden" because the outcome of not staying hidden could be tragic just like I mentioned it upper.

3. What are The Traditions? Who enforces them and how do the vampires view it?

The set of fundamental laws of the Masquerade are known as "Traditions" and those are:
 
  • The first tradition is called " The Masquerade " wich is the first fundamental law in the vampire society, it reffers to the existence of the vampires that shall be kept hidden from the mortals.
  • The second tradition is called " The Domain " wich is the title of the second fundamental law and it reffers to the zones that are controlled by certain vampires.
  • The third tradition is called " The Progeny " wich is the third fundamental law withing the vampire society, it reffers to the permission that one needs to gain from a one of the elders of a local vampire society for passing the curse furthet to one of the mortals.
  • The fourth tradition is called " The Accounting ", that is the fourth fundamental laws, this one is reffering the responsibility that one vampire takes in the moment of passing the curse further to one of the mortals and that every action his new childe has performed is "signed" into the sire's account and has to respons further for them untill the childe is released.
  • The fifth tradition is called " The Hospitality ". This fundamental law is forcing the vampire to honor another's vampire territory (domain) and to present himself to the ruler of the said domain before hunting and making any further actions in that domain, this is more of a sign of good manners and respect that is shown to the other kindreds.
  • The sixth tradition is called " The Destruction " the last official law of Masquerade is reffering to the removing of one's curse (by granting one's final death) at an Elder's wish that is mostly fonded upon the bad mistakes that the subject of the "blood hunt" (synonime for "the destruction" that reffers to a great hunt upon the said target(s) ) Once a vampire gets enough reasons to be killed, one of the Elders are ordering a blood hunt on the said vampire's name.
  These Traditions are very well known to be enforced heavily by the Camarilla and most of the vampires within the sect sees them as a fundamental set of laws that they have to live by, except for the Sabbat or some other independent vampires who might have different views.

4. What is a Clan?

A clan is a line of childes that leads up to one sire, they all share the same ideals, disciplines, traditions and disadvantages (clan curses). For the third generation mostly represented the sire of each clan, 13 in number, every childe was cursed by Caine for different reasons and with different curses.

5. What is a Bloodline?

  The bloodlines are smaller clans that appeared in the curse of history trough various ways such as mystical ones like Kiasyd, Divergent Evolution or Diablerie of an Antediluvian. Some vampires also call the Clan variants as bloodlines.

6. What sort of process is an embrace? What's diablerie? Why are both of these practices so commonly heard about? What's the view on these two?

  The embrace is the process of passing the curse of Caine to someone, be it human, werewolf, mage, etc. Altough the outcome is huge, the process is simple, the subject is being drained a considerable quantity of his blood and then it's replaced by the sire's usually one drop of blood.
  The "diablerie" which is also known as the "Amaranth" is the process in which a cursed child of Caine devours another's vitae, supposedly along with its soul, by this process a "cainite" could strenghted the link between him and Caine by consuming a more potent blood of another that is of lower generation than himself.
  The views are varying heavily from vampire to vampire, bloodline to bloodline, clan to clan and sect to sect. Regarding the embraces every clan or bloodline have their own standards that a potential childe have to meet before being embraced. But there could also be the case of the influences of the sect, for example the Sabbat who might embrace recklessly for various reasons of their own.
  It goes the same about diablerie but here the opinions are more influenced by the sect because the Camarilla interdicts such a practice and the Sabbat on the other hand might actually support it.

7. What are the vampire generations? How far do they stray from the original? What are these generations? Does generation measurement exist within the society?

  The generation represents the distance from the first vampire Caine because Caine's blood slowly vanishes from generation to generation. This happens because by the time a vampire embraces another he doesn't fully drains his subject , he let's a small quantity of the subject's original blood there which mixes with Caine's blood and, doing so, his blood would start to lose the same potency.
 
  Caine was the first generation then he embraced 3 childes Irad, Enoch and Zilah which represent the second generation, then those childes embraced further the Antediluvians and so on. There are ways to measure one's generation, mostly trough sorcery or rituals.

Character Story:(Min. 1500 words)

Spoiler for story:
You want to do what exactly?
We’re loosing ground and troops!
Then make some shovelheads, don’t plan something like this! He’ll be enslaved!
It’s a small price we.. he has to pay for the greater good of our kind. Camarilla shall fall from inside.
And why does it have to be me? Why don’t you put a Ventrue? You’re willing to sacrifice our clan but not your own?
Between my people and Camarilla’s are some differences. Some quite obvious ones. So you are going to embrace someone and send him into their ranks. He’ll be taught as one of us but trained as one of them.
Is the bishop on board with this?
Why wouldn’t he be?
A moment of silence took over the room. Both Sarius and Jeremiah, the venture, had some troubles with eachother in the past, but this time it looks like they may solve them. Alionor, the Lassombra bishop knew nothing about this plan, as Sarius tought, but that was not to stop the plan.
He had to find someone fit to be a Sabbat Toreador but still masquerade as a Camarilla one. He needed a sensitive person, an artist. One day in New York he attended the show “Me and Juliet”, a great Broadway performance at the time. The main actor, Blaine, truly impressed the vampire, which led to him being embraced.
Later that night Sarius got into Blaine’s room and left him with not a single drop of blood in his body, but giving him one of his own in return. The process was complete and a fledgling was created. After being embraced he was taken to his sire’s apartment where he woke up, thirsty. His sire put two fine ladies at his disposal for him to feed on them. After that he was taught the Camarilla’s traditions, a few weeks later and he was told that “You’re not to be bounded to the sect, as they would find out, understood?”. Nothing but a nod was necessary for the sire to understand that his childe understands perfectly what his mission is.
You will adhere to their rules and ways although you will always remain one of ours. You will help us gather as much information so we could destroy them once and forever. You’ll be assigned a new region every few years. Domains which we’ll take over.  You may chose however or whoever you want to be masquerading as while you’re in their domain. Once per month you shall be summoned to a specific location known by me and me alone where you’ll tell me whatever I want to know.
Yes, sire!

His first mission was in Atlanta, where he took his mortal wife and brother to a “world tour” with their new “dance band”.  After the first month Sarius came to visit, checking on him when he finds out that Blaine embraced his wife and brother.
You foolish boy, what did you do? You imbecile! You could get yourself killed for this in Camarilla society! What happened?
My brother, Abel and I had this double act and my wife, Veronica traveled with us. Now, for the last number in our act, we did 20 acrobatic tricks in a row: one, two, three, four, five...splits, spread eagles, back flips,flip flops, one right after the other. Well, this one night we were in the hotel Cicero, the three of us, sittin up in the hotel room boozin' and havin' a few laughs and I ran out of blood. So I went out to get some. I come back, open the door and there's Veronica and Abel doing number seventeen-the spread eagle.
Then what happened?
Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out.I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands I even knew they were dead.
And then you embraced them?
I felt guilty…
In the next fraction of second Sarius took his knife out and cut Veronica’s head off, turning her into ash. He then pointed the knife to Abel, but Blaine stepped in between. Sarius placed his knife back into his coat as he deathstared Blaine.
Your blood is very potent! You should be careful who you share it with. I’ll let you keep your new pet, but train it well. He disrespects you, you slap the hell out of him, like I’ve taught you.
Thank you, sire!
Years passed and they advanced with their powers, becoming stronger and stronger. In New Orleans they had a show, a musical interpretation of a certain book. They were part of the Camarilla community there, being under Saliman Lorth’s wing. Later that night they were in their room, simply talking.
So, started Blaine the conversation, how’s my childe doing?
Fuck off, we’re brothers! Twins to be exact!
But… who’s your daddy?
In the next second they both abused their Celerity power, running around the apartment, chasing one another. In the end they were both bored and simply layed down on the couch next to eachother.
Let’s have a drink, brother, shall we? Asked Abel with a charismatic smile.
Tonight you’ll do the honors, little bro!
There are literally 3 minutes between us, can you stop that non-sense?

One day, Abel summoned his brother, after making one huge mistake. When he arrived, Blaine could not believe his eyes when he saw that his childe killed someone, but not a human.. a garou. Without having anything to say he just stared at the dead body.
Blaine… I need help… I.. he made me frenzy and I killed him. Then I felt bad about it and tried to bring him back. What have I done?
Kill it! Before it kills us!
The wolf didn’t have time to wake up, because a sword just cut his head off, turning him into ash. It was Sarius’s blade, but it was not Sarius.
What have you done here, boys? Name’s Alexa, I’m your sister, Blaine.
Sarius’s childe? Interesting. Well, thank you for your help here.
Wait! We both know daddy would not be happy about it! And I won’t tell him unless you tell me something I want to know.
And what would that be, asked Abel.
So you always let your childe talk freely?
I’m his brother, not his childe. What do you want?
First, your silver blade, forged by the elder tremere, the regend of this city. Then you’ll tell me where I can find Tiryon, the well known gangrel pack master. Easy?
Abel handed his silver knife to her and she made herself unseen.

Later that year they were summoned by Sarius to provide information about the sect’s hiding places and meetings. Luck were they that the following week a great meeting was to have place: The Primogen. They were both invited as Saliman’s advisors, so they granted the Sabbat a free entry. The meeting ended with a massacre so cruel and dirty that you could hear the ashes flying around the room as all the primogen were dead.
   Sabbat took then control over New Orleans and the brothers were assigned a new city: San Diego. There they screwed up as an elder found out about their plan. He followed and assaulted them when they met Sarius.
I knew the twin stars of San Diego had some dark secret to hide! Now I know what, you Sabbat scumbags!
What what you say to my boys, interfered Sarius. They might get angry. I’ve trained them too well.
All three of them grabbed their knives and, in less than five seconds, the poor Ventrue that had the nerve to discover them was in torpor. Sarius took out his lighter and set the body on fire, granting him the final death.
This was maybe too close, boys. I need to make sure that you’re out of troubles for some decates before I reinstate you both. We’ll meet with two of my oldest friends.

They were brought back to New York, where they met with Jeremiah, the leader of the spy plan and Jessica, a very old and powerful Tzimisce. He had their memory erased and replaced with Camarilla memories only and let them know everything about their powers and the disciplines they’ve learned over the years. Jessica shaped their bodies in a way no one would recognize them, making Blaine look asian and kept Abel american. They were even mesmerized not to talk about some of their powers and to pretend to have the Toreador’s main weakness.
It was not easy for two vampires believing themselves to be fledglings in 1983 , especially in Kansas. They made friends and kept humans close the them. After a while they learned animalism from a local Gangrel, in exchange of a show to cheer up the pack’s moral.
One day, somewhere in the next ten years, Blaine comes to their shared heaven with two little balls of fur.
Is that dinner, Blaine? Asked Abel as his eyes glowed for a second of joy.
These are Tina  and Joffrey, our new family members. They’re dogs, not food! We’re going to ghoulify them when they’ll be old enough. And they will be just perfect for the two of us. And look, my Tina is a german shepherd and your Joffrey is a husky.
Who said his name will be Joffrey? That’s gay, even for you! He’s going to be Jax!
Watch your language, young man! You’re talking to your sire!
Fuck off! By the way a mail came this morning and, wait for it, it contains two identity cards for the both of us and bus tickets to a place called.. Red County. What should we do?
Not go? Dumbass? Are you insane? What the hell would we do there?
Well, I’ve checked with some friends and it seems like there’s quite a big Camarilla community there. And they’re fighting Sabbat!
The Sabbat killed my sire, said Blaine with some sort of sadness in his voice. We should help them. Let’s pack things up and remember, tomorrow night we have our last show, don’t forget about it!
Never have I eve-..
Shut up! New York, last summer?

Their trip was delayed by some events that occurred and some kindred in need that asked for their help. Nonethe less, they arrived in Red County in January of 1998, via that bus.
So this domain has a prince, right?
Yes… the prince of the county…
Prince of the county.. mister Lloyd We… something…
Bring the action.
We’re gonna have so much fun here!
That we’ll do, brother… that we’ll do…

Out of Character:

1.What kind of powers are you allowed to use in public? What stops you from using them?

You are allowed to use powers that do not show a vulgar effect upon casting. For example you may be able to use your disciplines that would employ a mental effect upon your targets such as Dominate, Presence etc. or disciplines that might only enhance yourself in a non-obvious manner such as Auspex or a few paths of Thaumaturgy etc.

The Masquerade is the first and the most important thing that stops you from using powers that employ a "vulgar" effect since it's exposing your very nature to the others.

2.Someone has discovered you. He's planning on making a statement within a week, you have all the time to prepare. What do you do? Consider consequences of every sort of action. Putting down more than one option increases your chances of getting accepted.

In my opinion the best idea would be to erase or alter the memories of the individual trough the use of Dominate.
If one cannot accomplish that task then the uses of Presence should help the vampire to silence the individual by pulling him towards his side.
If the character cannot adhere to such disciplines he could attempt to ghoulify the said individual so he could silence him as he would take advantage of the artifical emotions created by the mystical blood bond.
If none of these would be valid the murder would become the last option but this is the last option a vampire should adhere to because it could draw many consequences since the individual could've informed his closed ones about it and you could raise question marks around once you kill him, police could find and track the clues back to you or in the worst scenario you could draw unwanted attention of other supernaturals.

3.An officer walks up to you and tells you to stay put, you are a wanted individual. In the struggle you both shed a good amount of blood, what could possibly happen in this scenario and how further can you avoid these dangerous encounters?

Considering my particular situation, if the cop shot me already and if I am /already/ a wanted criminal, I would make sure that I will be safe. I assure myself that the enviroment allows me to use "vulgar" effects of disciplines without breaking the Masquerade then I would end my threat and run from the scene while covering myself with the Obfuscate discipline which would help me to avoid further dangerous encounters such as this one.

4.You mutter around town and notice a rather viscous looking hairy beast with claws stretching out of his arms. What could it possibly be and what could you possibly do about this?
 
 To my character knowledge this creature could be a black spiral dancer, a fomori, a special tzimisce or an infernalist vampire with the knowledge of Protean discipline other than that it could be a deformed Metis.
 Observing such a creature roaming around the town clearly offers me a bad feeling and I would consider to avoid it considering that it did not engaged me already, my next action would be to inform the local society of vampires about this event so they could take preventive measures and perhaps to investigate this situation.

5.You've been at the game for quite a while now. You are walking down a dark alley with your partner and three thugs come out of the shadowy corner, aiming their mundane weaponry at you. Should you be scared?
 
  There are rather few vampires who would not fear mundane weaponry knowing the fact that they could still put you down if used cleverly. Having this possibility in my mind I would consider to carefully thread with this situation and to not trigger their will to open fire.

6.Considering your bloodline or clan, what sort of job would you be good at? Make a priority job and a side job in case you need one.

 My bloodline embraces all sorts of individuals from any social class but my character specifically would assume the job of a drug dealer for the simple reason that he could get closer to blood packs.

General questions:

1. What comes to your mind when the word vampire arises? What is a vampire in a human view and what is it from a vampire's own view? How different are standard folklore and World of Darkness vampires?
Vampire is a soul damned to forever live in death.  A vampire is a cursed creature, forced to feed on living creatures’ vitae. The original name of the curse is „Curse of Caine”. It’s said that God himself cursed Caine for killing his brother, Abel.
A simple human can’t understand how it is to be a vampire. For a human a vampire is a very powerful creature of the night or a hideous monster that craves virgin’s blood . But of course, a human’s point of view is based on what media suggests.
On the other hand, a vampire in it’s own perspective is cursed to kill, many of them give in their dark side, because it happens that one’s needs to be stronger than his will.
Folklore vampires and World of Darkness vampires are not so different. The thing is: WoD embraces all vampire lores, merging all of them into one big story.

2. What kind of consequences could possibly arise were a vampire be outed to the general public? What sort of action would be taken by various governments and the people? For this reason, do you think vampires should take the chance of coming out clean or should they rather stay hidden?

If humans find out about vampires it would be chaos. There is not a single good thing that can come out of this. The mundanes would start hunting vampires and, probably, other supernatural creatures. And also the vampire that was outed is going to be labeled as a Masquerade breaker and ,depending on the severity, the highest consequence would be a „Blood Hunt”.
Vampires prefer  human blood and so they tend to reach populated places and societies. They can easly infiltrate in a comunity, due to their human appearance. The advantages of joining a comunity are diversified, like: plenty of food or manipulating a very influential person, gathering power for themselves.
All being said, vampires should stay hidden at all cost, because it won’t affect just a person, it will affect the entire supernatural comunity.

3. What are The Traditions? Who enforces them and how do the vampires view it?
Camarilla is well known to enforce the traditions and most of the vampires see them as fundamental rules that they have to live by. The exceptions are the Sabbat or some independent vampires who might have different opinions.
The traditions require: hiding your true nature, domain and who controls it, embrace and responsabilities that come with it.

The first tradition: The Masquerade
Thou shall not reveal thy true nature to those not of the Blood.
Doing such shall renounce thy claims of Blood.

The second tradition: The Domain
Thy domain is thine own concern.
All others owe thee respect while in it.
None may challenge thy word while in thy domain.

The third tradition: The Progeny
Thou shall only Sire another with the permission of thine Elder.
If thou createst another without thine Elder’s leave, both thou and thy Progeny shall be slain.

The fourth tradition: The Accounting
Those thou create are thine own children.
Until thy Progeny shall be Released, thou shall command them in all things.
Their sins are thine to endure.

The fifth tradition: The Hospitality
Honor one another’s domain.
When thou comest to a foreign city, thou shall present thyself to the one who ruleth there.
Without the word of acceptance, thou art nothing.

The sixth tradition: The Destruction
Thou art forbidden to destroy another of thy kind.
The right of destruction belongeth only to thine Elder.
Only the Eldest among thee shall call the Blood Hunt.

4. What is a Clan?
A clan is a line of childes that leads up to one sire, they all share the same ideals, disciplines, traditions and disadvantages. For the third generation mostly represented the sire of each clan, 13 in number, every childe was cursed by Caine for different reasons and with different curses. The founders of the clans are called the Antediluvians, the 3rd generaqtion vampires:
Clan Assamite: Haqim
Clan Brujah: Troile
Clan Followers of Set: Set
Clan Gangrel: Ennoia
Clan Giovanni: Augustus Giovanni
Clan Lasombra: Lasombra
Clan Malkavian: Malkav
Clan Nosferatu: Absimiliard
Clan Ravnos: Ravana
Clan Toreador: Ishtar
Clan Tremere: Tremere
Clan Tzimisce: Tzimisce
Clan Ventrue: Ventru

5. What is a Bloodline?
The bloodlines are smaller clans that appeared in the curse of history trough various ways such as mystical ones like Kiasyd, Divergent Evolution or Diablerie of an Antediluvian. Some vampires also call the Clan variants as bloodlines. Some bloodlines even come from clans, like Dauthers of Cacophony.

6. What sort of process is an embrace? What's diablerie? Why are both of these practices so commonly heard about? What's the view on these two?
The embrace is the process of turning other living creatures in vampire, passing the curse of Caine. This process is simple: the subject is drained a huge amount of it’s blood and it’s replaced with at least one drop of the sire’s blood. If the victim is already dead but the body is still warn the same process can turn the dead into a vampire.
The views are varying, depending on bloodline, clan, sect or the vampire. Every clan and bloodline has it’s own standards that a potential childe has to meet before being embraced.
The „diablerie” (also known as „Amaranth”)  is the process in wich a cursed child of Caine consumes another’s vitae (lower generation) to strenghten the link between him and Caine. The process is hard and only few manage to go through with it.
The opinion about „diablerie” is more influenced by the sect, because Camarilla interdicts this practice while the Sabbat might accept it, to gain more power to enforce Caine’s army.

7. What are the vampire generations? How far do they stray from the original? What are these generations? Does generation measurement exist within the society?
One’s generation represents the distance between him and the first vampire, because Caine’s blood  slowly vanishes from generation to generation. This happens because during the process of embracing, the subject keep a part of it’s original blood and doing so, in time, there will be less Caine and more mongrel. Only a few know about the term generation and they are those who can find out which generation are you. There are scepific Thaumaturgy paths and rituals that can tell. No one uses this measurement within the society, maybe some Tremere.

-   And why does it have to be me? Why don’t you put a Ventrue? You’re willing to sacrifice our clan but not your own?
-   Between my people and Camarilla’s are some differences. Some quite obvious ones. So you are going to embrace someone and send him into their ranks. He’ll be taught as one of us but trained as one of them.
-   Is the bishop on board with this?
-   Why wouldn’t he be?
A moment of silence took over the room. Both Sarius and Jeremiah, the venture, had some troubles with eachother in the past, but this time it looks like they may solve them. Alionor, the Lassombra bishop knew nothing about this plan, as Sarius tought, but that was not to stop the plan.
He had to find someone fit to be a Sabbat Toreador but still masquerade as a Camarilla one. He needed a sensitive person, an artist. One day in New York he attended the show “Me and Juliet”, a great Broadway performance at the time. The main actor, Blaine, truly impressed the vampire, which led to him being embraced.
Later that night Sarius got into Blaine’s room and left him with not a single drop of blood in his body, but giving him one of his own in return. The process was complete and a fledgling was created. After being embraced he was taken to his sire’s apartment where he woke up, thirsty. His sire put two fine ladies at his disposal for him to feed on them. After that he was taught the Camarilla’s traditions, a few weeks later and he was told that “You’re not to be bounded to the sect, as they would find out, understood?”. Nothing but a nod was necessary for the sire to understand that his childe understands perfectly what his mission is.
-   You will adhere to their rules and ways although you will always remain one of ours. You will help us gather as much information so we could destroy them once and forever. You’ll be assigned a new region every few years. Domains which we’ll take over.  You may chose however or whoever you want to be masquerading as while you’re in their domain. Once per month you shall be summoned to a specific location known by me and me alone where you’ll tell me whatever I want to know.
-   Yes, sire!

His first mission was in Atlanta, where he took his mortal wife and brother to a “world tour” with their new “dance band”.  After the first month Sarius came to visit, checking on him when he finds out that Blaine embraced his wife and brother.
-   You foolish boy, what did you do? You imbecile! You could get yourself killed for this in Camarilla society! What happened?
-   My brother, Abel and I had this double act and my wife, Veronica traveled with us. Now, for the last number in our act, we did 20 acrobatic tricks in a row: one, two, three, four, five...splits, spread eagles, back flips,flip flops, one right after the other. Well, this one night we were in the hotel Cicero, the three of us, sittin up in the hotel room boozin' and havin' a few laughs and I ran out of blood. So I went out to get some. I come back, open the door and there's Veronica and Abel doing number seventeen-the spread eagle.
-   Then what happened?
-   Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out.I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands I even knew they were dead.
-   And then you embraced them?
-   I felt guilty…
In the next fraction of second Sarius took his knife out and cut Veronica’s head off, turning her into ash. He then pointed the knife to Abel, but Blaine stepped in between. Sarius placed his knife back into his coat as he deathstared Blaine.
-   Your blood is very potent! You should be careful who you share it with. I’ll let you keep your new pet, but train it well. He disrespects you, you slap the hell out of him, like I’ve taught you.
-   Thank you, sire!
Years passed and they advanced with their powers, becoming stronger and stronger. In New Orleans they had a show, a musical interpretation of a certain book. They were part of the Camarilla community there, being under Saliman Lorth’s wing. Later that night they were in their room, simply talking.
-   So, started Blaine the conversation, how’s my childe doing?
-   Fuck off, we’re brothers! Twins to be exact!
-   But… who’s your daddy?
In the next second they both abused their Celerity power, running around the apartment, chasing one another. In the end they were both bored and simply layed down on the couch next to eachother.
-   Let’s have a drink, brother, shall we? Asked Abel with a charismatic smile.
-   Tonight you’ll do the honors, little bro!
-   There are literally 3 minutes between us, can you stop that non-sense?

One day, Abel summoned his brother, after making one huge mistake. When he arrived, Blaine could not believe his eyes when he saw that his childe killed someone, but not a human.. a garou. Without having anything to say he just stared at the dead body.
-   Blaine… I need help… I.. he made me frenzy and I killed him. Then I felt bad about it and tried to bring him back. What have I done?
-   Kill it! Before it kills us!
The wolf didn’t have time to wake up, because a sword just cut his head off, turning him into ash. It was Sarius’s blade, but it was not Sarius.
-   What have you done here, boys? Name’s Alexa, I’m your sister, Blaine.
-   Sarius’s childe? Interesting. Well, thank you for your help here.
-   Wait! We both know daddy would not be happy about it! And I won’t tell him unless you tell me something I want to know.
-   And what would that be, asked Abel.
-   So you always let your childe talk freely?
-   I’m his brother, not his childe. What do you want?
-   First, your silver blade, forged by the elder tremere, the regend of this city. Then you’ll tell me where I can find Tiryon, the well known gangrel pack master. Easy?
Abel handed his silver knife to her and she made herself unseen.

Later that year they were summoned by Sarius to provide information about the sect’s hiding places and meetings. Luck were they that the following week a great meeting was to have place: The Primogen. They were both invited as Saliman’s advisors, so they granted the Sabbat a free entry. The meeting ended with a massacre so cruel and dirty that you could hear the ashes flying around the room as all the primogen were dead.
   Sabbat took then control over New Orleans and the brothers were assigned a new city: San Diego. There they screwed up as an elder found out about their plan. He followed and assaulted them when they met Sarius.
-   I knew the twin stars of San Diego had some dark secret to hide! Now I know what, you Sabbat scumbags!
-   What what you say to my boys, interfered Sarius. They might get angry. I’ve trained them too well.
All three of them grabbed their knives and, in less than five seconds, the poor Ventrue that had the nerve to discover them was in torpor. Sarius took out his lighter and set the body on fire, granting him the final death.
-   This was maybe too close, boys. I need to make sure that you’re out of troubles for some decates before I reinstate you both. We’ll meet with two of my oldest friends.

They were brought back to New York, where they met with Jeremiah, the leader of the spy plan and Jessica, a very old and powerful Tzimisce. He had their memory erased and replaced with Camarilla memories only and let them know everything about their powers and the disciplines they’ve learned over the years. Jessica shaped their bodies in a way no one would recognize them, making Blaine look asian and kept Abel american. They were even mesmerized not to talk about some of their powers and to pretend to have the Toreador’s main weakness.
It was not easy for two vampires believing themselves to be fledglings in 1983 , especially in Kansas. They made friends and kept humans close the them. After a while they learned animalism from a local Gangrel, in exchange of a show to cheer up the pack’s moral.
One day, somewhere in the next ten years, Blaine comes to their shared heaven with two little balls of fur.
-   Is that dinner, Blaine? Asked Abel as his eyes glowed for a second of joy.
-   These are Tina  and Joffrey, our new family members. They’re dogs, not food! We’re going to ghoulify them when they’ll be old enough. And they will be just perfect for the two of us. And look, my Tina is a german shepherd and your Joffrey is a husky.
-   Who said his name will be Joffrey? That’s gay, even for you! He’s going to be Jax!
-   Watch your language, young man! You’re talking to your sire!
-   Fuck off! By the way a mail came this morning and, wait for it, it contains two identity cards for the both of us and bus tickets to a place called.. Red County. What should we do?
-   Not go? Dumbass? Are you insane? What the hell would we do there?
-   Well, I’ve checked with some friends and it seems like there’s quite a big Camarilla community there. And they’re fighting Sabbat!
-   The Sabbat killed my sire, said Blaine with some sort of sadness in his voice. We should help them. Let’s pack things up and remember, tomorrow night we have our last show, don’t forget about it!
-   Never have I eve-..
-   Shut up! New York, last summer?

Their trip was delayed by some events that occurred and some kindred in need that asked for their help. Nonethe less, they arrived in Red County in January of 1998, via that bus.
-   So this domain has a prince, right?
-   Yes… the prince of the county…
-   Prince of the county.. mister Lloyd We… something…
-   Bring the action.
-   We’re gonna have so much fun here!
-   That we’ll do, brother… that we’ll do…

Out of Character:

1.What kind of powers are you allowed to use in public? What stops you from using them?

Powers that have a coincidental effect, such as powers that do not create obvious visual effects like the summoning of a fireball or a blur-like speed Celerity usage. You could use powers such as Dominate, Presence, Auspex, anything that would not put the Masquerade in danger. You might be stopped from using other powers by the Masquerade because you could end up breaching the Masquerade. And the Camarilla can call a blood hunt on you if your breach is serious.

2.Someone has discovered you. He's planning on making a statement within a week, you have all the time to prepare. What do you do? Consider consequences of every sort of action. Putting down more than one option increases your chances of getting accepted.
Well, first of all i could convince him to drop the accusations and, no matter the answer, i’d kill him.
Or I could use all my influences and friends to either make everyone believe he’s insane or even cast out from the society.
But there are also magical ways to keep one from telling a secret, like Thaumaturgical rituals, such as Bind The Accusing Tongue.

3.An officer walks up to you and tells you to stay put, you are a wanted individual. In the struggle you both shed a good amount of blood, what could possibly happen in this scenario and how further can you avoid these dangerous encounters?
This would be a risky situation due to all the posibilities. If there are people around, i wouldn’t be able to fight at my full potential, but i sure could try to run away from the crowd. If he catches me I would be forced to alter his memories, because the murder of an officer of the law would look suspicios.
There are also other disciplines that can be used certain disciplines, such as Presence 3 or 5.

4.You mutter around town and notice a rather viscous looking hairy beast with claws stretching out of his arms. What could it possibly be and what could you possibly do about this?
It could be a werewolf and in that case I’d go in the opposite direction, because I don’t really want to get involved with those creatures, although it could put all of us (supernatural creatures) in danger.
On the other hand, if it’s a gangrel I’d try to stop him from violating the Masquerade. If I fail I’d get out of there as soon as possible, not to be convicted for the same thing.

5.You've been at the game for quite a while now. You are walking down a dark alley with your partner and three thugs come out of the shadowy corner, aiming their mundane weaponry at you. Should you be scared?
Yes, I would be affraid, but not of them, but of exposing myself. I could easly talk them out of doing this, but if I don’t ... well then I can use a certain amount of powers, for example:
I’d entrace one of them to protect me from the others. I’d use Presence 5 to make them bow down before me or I’d use my celerity to have them all killed. Either way no innocent life would be ended. As for my partner I’d have his memories erased.

6.Considering your bloodline or clan, what sort of job would you be good at? Make a priority job and a side job in case you need one.
I can be an artist, such as dancer, singer or actor, according to my character’s background. Or i could own a club and abuse my artistic knowledges into making it the best place to be in the entire county.
Even prostitution would be a good job, but as a man there are not many who would pick me over a hot girl.

Player information:

1.For how long have you been playing on Vampires, Werewolves and Humans roleplay?
I’ve been playing since 2014, but with large gaps due to school  and discovering other games.
It’s been 5 months since I came back.

2.Make a list of your current and past characters.
Aurora_Nathalia_Kind (ex Matthew_Mikaelson)
Killian_H_James (ex Nick_Snieg)
Adaline_Morgenstern
Alissa_Morgenstern
Katherine_Steel
Andreea_Mikaelson

3.Do you understand that by taking part of this race, you can be changed by the race moderators (or even admins) for the most simple reasons? If you are to apply and get accepted, you are to follow the race rules to the fullest extent and upon reaching zero masquerade points, lose your character. Have you read all of this and understood what's your part?
I do. And if something like this would happen I’d agree with the fact that I’m not able to roleplay this character. But I am, and I agree with this terms.

4Post a screenshot (embedded with code, no links) of your admin record and activity (include each personal account):
http://imgur.com/a/jxX5M – It might be a little bit buggy. Just click on the imagges that appear with an error.

5.If there is anything you would improve/change regarding the vampire race, what would it be?
I’d go for some specific suggestions that were made in the past: http://vwh-rp.com/index.php?topic=19747.0 and http://vwh-rp.com/index.php?topic=19555.0
