who's burning candles? 😂
It must be really smart to go on someone's char speciality and fact that he put alot of work to get that numina. Instead of joking around of his basic powers start developing your characters. Power he wields can kill some vampire due to lack of fortitude.

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?

When a vampire is spoken, in my mind I see it as a vampire according to the lore that we follow. A vampire is a cursed/blessed being forced to "live" an eternity, not being able to age, most of them not being able to eat and drink food. Being extremely pale and their skin being very cold, not to mention possessing unnatural blood magick which they use in order to feed, a.k.a manipulating their victims using entracement and such or knocking them out using potence and such. from a human's view a vampire is a bloodsucking creature, pale as Dracula himself, have funny accents and dress like edgy 15 year olds, transforming into bats and controlling everyone and everything. From a vampire's view depending on the vampire, to their own kind, a vampire is a blessed/cursed being gifted with the power of immortality and other supernatural abilities, called disciplines.

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 a vampire were to show his true nature to humanity, there would be consequences depending on what type of person did the vampire reveal himself to, and how many. For an example if a vampire revelead himself to a homeless person, by showing his fangs or something of that sort. There wouldn't be many consequences because who the hell would believe a hobo saying that: "He had... fangs!" He'll most likely be considered crazy! On the other hand this may raise suspicion, and people that possess money, may send people to investigate, and if they find out the hobo was right, this could and most likely will cause a huge witch hunt, hunting down all vampires! Not with torches and forks, but with
assault rifles and shotguns...

3. What are The Traditions? Who enforces them and how do the vampires view it? The traditions are a set of laws/rules made by Caine himself. Not every clan respects and follows all of them, but most of them follow the most important one, the Masquerade, here are all the other Traditions and what they mean:

1. The Masquerade
Thou shall not reveal thy true nature to those not of the Blood. 
Doing such shall renounce thy claims of Blood."
The First Tradition is pretty straight forward, don't reveal yourself to mortals, makes sense doesn't it? Humans fear the supernatural sure, but they can definitely fight back.

2. 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."
Straightforward as well, a domain is like a wolfs territory, but a lot more strict. Basically the owner of the Domain is the "big dog", Whatever he says applies as long as you are inside his Domain, if you have a problem with that, leave.

3. The Progeny
"Thou shall only Sire another with the permission of thine Elder.
If thou create another without thine Elder’s leave, both thou and thy Progeny shall be slain."
Basically, you require a permission from an Elder to perform the Embrace, failing to get one and performing the Embrace anyway ends in the death of the sire and child.

4. The Accounting
"Those thou create are thine own children.
Until thy Progeny shall be Released, thou shall command them in all things."
Congratulations, you have a slave! As good as this may sound, every wrong doing that your slave does in the kindred society, YOU take the blame for it.

5. The Hospitality
"Honor one another’s domain.
When thou come to a foreign city, thou shall present thyself to the one who ruleth there."
When entering someone's Domain, passing through or choosing to remain in it for the time being, makes you obliged to introduce yourself to the Domain's owner, failing to do so often tends for the traveler to end up punished, outcast or even worse.

6. 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."
Means what it says, literally. Killing a fellow vampire, rather sending him to its final death is a act only done with the permission of an Elder.

4. What is a Clan?

A clan to a kindred is her lineage, the vampiric "family" into which she was embraced.
It started with Caine, the first and most powerful vampire. Making Caine the only first generation vampire. Caine embraced humans, making them the second generation, and then, those second generation vampires embraced humans of their own, making the third generation, where everything was set in motion. The third generation killed their sire's and were cursed with the curses of Caine, but also blessed with the powers of their sires of course. Then the third generation embraced more, creating the fourth generation, and this process repeated and repeated until the generations were too thin blooded that they were unable to embrace. And there are the famous thirteen Clans:

Assamites:
They call themselves children of Haqim, they are Clan of murderous vampires. They are often willing to get sacrificed for their own beliefs. For many years they would often serve as independent vampires who would assassinate their victims in order to get blood by those who gave them a target.

Brujah:
The clan that excels in physical strength and manipulating one's emotion. The Brujah is the most common clan that vampires belong to. Facing the weakness of being too hot-headed having a much harder time "keeping their cool."

Followers of Set:
The Followers of Set claim that they are something much more older then the Camarilla and Sabat, dismissing the idea that goals should be cast aside because some vampires decided calling themselves names. They don't join any Sect for such a reason and mostly dwell in secret places, worshiping them in order to gain access to dark favors and a wealth of knowledge.

Gangrel:
The Gangrel is a clan that is currently independent, the members of the said clan are very close to their "true nature" the Beast, making them much closer to animals then any other clan, and giving them the ability to shape-shift into one. Facing the weakness of growing animal characteristics when frenzying, such as growing out a tail, or cat ears.

Giovanni:
They are considered Necromancers in the Kindred society, which have two primary goals: Learning the secrets of the dead, and acquiring wealth and knowledge that may help their clan. But only a few elders know that the clan's founder, Augustus Giovanni, is trying to gain the knowledge and power in order to destroy the "Shroud" which separates the world of the living and the world of the dead. Giving them no reason to join the Sects.

Lasombra:
The manipulators of shadows and darkness, having the unique ability to bend the shadows, using them at their will, not only as lethal weapons, but invoking fear as well. The Lasombra forced their Beast's into submission, invoking it when it suits them. Feeling a sense of duty whether to a Sect, Clan or even themselves.

Malkavian:
Malkavian's are considered insane Tricksters, unlike Ravnos who pose a lesser threat, the Malkavian's often do really dangerous "pranks" that may even breach the Masquerade itself. They possess one of the strongest curses, insanity itself. Although they consider this insanity to be a powerful insight. They find themselves to be apart of the Camarilla offering their "insights".

Nosferatu:
The Nosferatu is a clan that also possesses a rather, non-pleasant curse, which is to be EXTREMELY hideous. They often dwell in the sewers and other dark places, finding themselves to be apart of the Camarilla.

Ravnos:
The Ravnos are considered Deceivers by the other clans, due to their unique discipline to create illusions, and often being entertained by pick-pocketing, lying and such. They are an independent clan but they often seek refuge in Camarilla and Sabbat cities. Being very badly organized due to their clan being dispersed all around the world.

Toreador:
The Toreador clan possesses members that are often considered the most beautiful clan, possessing the great social skills and appearance, they are most likely hanging around humans, seducing their victims in order to get what they want, which is most often, blood.

Tremere:
The Tremere were actually mages, who found a way to become kindred, many suspicions are raised upon them from the other clans, The Tremere follow the way of Blood Magic. Using the strong discipline called Thaumaturgy, they consider themselves to be a sturdy pillar of the Camarilla, considered warlocks by their fellow kindred.

Tzimisce:
The Tzimisce use an unique and strange discipline, allowing them to twist the skin and bones of their opponents. They were a clan naturally associated with the Sabbat, considered to be its Priests or Ducti, and prefer to maintain havens with their packs.

Ventrue:
Refered to as the Blue Bloods. They are  natural leaders and the clan that originated the Camarilla, they present themselves as nobles, and try to insure the best "unlife" a kindred could have.

5. What is a Bloodline?

Bloodline is a term used to describe a group of vampires who share a common lineage, basically a branch of a clan. A bloodline retains many of the characteristics of the clan from which it spawned, but the process of joining, or founding, a bloodline alters the joining Kindred's Vitae significantly.

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 a process in which a vampire SUCKS every single drop of blood a human has, once doing so, a vampire releases  some of its own blood into the corpse, reanimating the body with its vitae. This is how the "curse" spreads and how vampires are made, hence why its so commonly heard about. Diablerie is a process in which a bigger generation sucks not only a lower generation vampire's blood, but its life essence, growing stronger due to the lower generation's blood contains more of Caine's blood, the Sabbat often does this process hence why its so popular, the Camarilla has a rule about diablerie and the embrace, but not all vampires follow 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? It starts with the 1st generation which included one vampire, Caine the first and strongest vampire who decided to embrace two humans, making them the second generation, then the second generation created the third generation, which created the 13 clans, and so on until the 15th generation which contained so little of Caine's blood that they couldn't do the act of embrace no longer. The bigger the generation the less blood of Caine flows within the vampire, meaning that the bigger the generation the more the stray from Caine, the original.

8. What are the two notable Anarch Revolts? What sort of effect did they have upon the vampires?
The first Anarch Revolt happened during the Inquisition where a large group of hunters were killing vampires. Elders were hiding from the Inquisition and used the neonates(low rank vampires) to save themselves. Of course the lower generations did not like that and soon enough a Brujah decided to take a stand and protest against this act, creating the Anarchy who's ideals were to not tolerate the "Elders" bullshit and that every vampire no matter what rank it has, possesses the same rights and "respect". Which led to the Anarchs even killing an elder.

The second Anarch Revolt happened in Los Angeles where a low ranking vampire asked for a petition for the black and hispanic anarchs from a elder. The elder of course went "big dog" mode and beat him senseless, ordering his ghouls to get rid of him. The low ranking vampire survived and asked help from his ally where they made many revolts in Los Angeles, which the Anarchs used as a opportunity to kill the Prince, and they did. Causing the Anarch to spread to the west coast.

Character Story:(Min. 1500 words)
Spoiler for Hidden:
When It All Started...


Stephano Medici's story starts when he was only a 16 year old. Living in a small town called Apatin in Serbia, in a small house with his mother. The father left when Stephano was only a baby, not ready to take responsibility of the child, he left the mother alone. Stephano grew up with a loving but "strange" mother more or less, which he loved as any child would love their own mother. Who had a mental break down when Stephano was only 14. She screamed in fear and cried, shouting over and over again, holding her head as she wondered how the hell was she supposed to take care of her child, doing so she got on the road and a car hit her, rendering both of her legs useless, giving Stephano a lot of pressure and having to take care of his own mother now. Stephano had to quit school when this happened, and was forced to get a job as such a young age. One night he was walking down the street of Apatin, heading down to the grocery store to get the groceries needed for him to make dinner for him and his mother, he encounters a girl in front of him, who seemed like she was a bit older then him, maybe two years older. Anyway upon walking past her to get inside he heard her whisper, saying: "I know how you feel." Surprised Stephano widened his eyes turning around before he got inside he saw that the girl was gone, no where to be seen. Stephano sighed as he went inside, he got his groceries and walked back home, having no strange encounters while doing so. He cooked dinner and it was like an ordinary night for him, having a strange feeling that someone was watching him, not giving much thought about it though he continued his life as normal. A few nights later Stephano's mother was sick, she was constantly coughing, blowing her nose and feeling feverish. Stephano being the "good son" he was he quickly grabbed his jacket took some money, and went out in town once more, heading downtown where his friend was selling medicine illegally, not having much choice Stephen went to his buddy anyway. Upon arriving to his friend's house he saw a bag of medicine outside his doorstep. Stephen twitched his eye as he looked around, making sure nobody is watching him as he snatched the bag and ran home back to his mother, where he treated her by giving her the medicine he found, which contained anti-cough syrup and other medication that would help his mother's state.
Two years later, Stephen still had the paranoid feeling that somebody was watching him, and the strange things only continued to happen, his mother needed something he found it, he needed something, he found it. Stephen came to the conclusion that somebody really was watching them, and for some reason helping them! Having no proof of this theory he decided not to tell his mother. Anyway after Stephano turned 18 his mother succumbed to her main illness which was cancer. Not having enough money to pay treatment, not being sure if it would even help, she passed away, leaving Stephano all alone. After some time of sulking in sadness and despair Stephano was roaming the streets, homeless until he met a strange girl. "You seem lost..." She said as he offered Stephano her hand to him. Stephano gazed at her hand, gently grabbing onto it, he felt a cold touch, and she felt the same. "Lets go." She said as she lead him to a abandoned train station, where she revealed herself to him, showing him that she is the same girl from two years ago, the girl who was constantly helping him and his mother out, the girl that sparked his interest. "Why, why you, why us?" She smiled at him with her pale appearance as she leaned closer to him. Stephano blushed a slight bit, as he expected an answer a whisper like before but instead, he left an overwhelming pleasure appear in his body, making him fall unconscious. He woke up, seeing his sire's face, feeling drained out but good. "Wha-... What happened?" He asked as she smiled upon him and told him that he is now a ghoul, what she is, what the laws are, everything a ghoul should now, but spoke nothing about the Embrace, keeping it a secret. "I'm sure you are wondering why I picked you, why I granted you my powers and the gift of immortality." Stephano stayed silent as he nodded with a curious but slightly happy expression. "You remind me so much of myself when I was a human, you see I was also left with a single parent that I loved very much, who had a mental breakdown that caused him to commit suicide... I was only 18 and didn't know what to do, I was left alone in the streets, until my sire found me, and made me his ghoul, his companion, that's what you are to me now, a companion, a friend." Stephano smiled as he shed a tear being reminded of his past, but shown a good future, he smiled at her crying, but quickly wiping his uncontrollable tears. She smiled back at him, wiping the remaining tears off his face as she said: "Don't cry, you don't need to cry anymore, you and I will spend our lives forever happy now, for all eternity."
Stephano and his sire, Milica Kalanj a Serbian Ravnos, traveled to America hoping for a better life, more specifically San Andreas where they ventured out in Los Santos, buying a small house, getting the money by doing various criminal activities, pick-pocketing and even killing criminals, and then taking whatever they had on them. After living with his sire for 10 years Milica decided to test Stephano a test that should decide his fate. One night, Stephano woke up due to hearing a strange noise in their garage, he got out of his bed, took his baseball bat and ventured down into the garage, the door was closed but the light was on and shouting was heard. He opened the door slightly while firmly holding onto his bat, he saw his sire surrounded by three men, two of which were pinning her down, while the third was standing there, telling her to keep her mouth SHUT. Angered Stephano barged inside the garage, surprising one of the men, slamming his baseball bat onto the man's neck while shouting: "You picked the wrong house, fool!" The bat broke, split to two pieces as Stephano hit the man, which obviously felt the attack, but wasn't affected by it, he turned around saying: "What the fuck?" as he grabbed onto Stephano's neck choking him. Stephano started to feel the air in his lungs fade away, the only thing he was seeing was the man choke him, and in the background two other men who were slowly killing his sire, torturing her, making her scream in pain by constantly stabbing her with a knife and twisting it inside of her body. Stephano began to loose consciousness, but due to the Fortitude discipline he gained from his sire's blood he pulled through, kicking the man who held him in the genitals with a nice swing of his foot, which made the man loose his grip, moving reflexively. Stephano broke out of the choke, passing through the man who held him he tackled the men torturing his sire who then ran away out of the garage. Stephano's sire was bleeding through her chest, blood was coming out of her mouth, but she kept a smile as she looked at Stephano. Stephano began to shed tears as he talked to her with a shaky and unstable voice, telling her that: "Its gonna be okay... You are gonna be okay, please just, hold on!" Stephano looked at her sire struggling to lift her arm up, she suddenly snapped her fingers and Stephano began to lose consciousness, he felt a overwhelming pleasure, shedding tears as his sire on the ground disappeared, everything the blood the knife, it was all gone. Stephano thought this was the end for him, that he was dying for some reason, possibly having a mental breakdown like his mother unwillingly he gave in to the pleasure and fell unconscious. He later then woke up, pale feeling a thirst for blood as he stood up, seeing his sire sit on the chair in front of him, smiling as usual. "You passed the test." She said to Stephano, who replied with:"Test, what test?" Stephano made a curious and anxious expression while expecting an answer to his question, while she chuckled tossing a blood pack to Stephano, who reflexively leaped at it, and sucked all the blood out of it. While doing so Stephano's sire, Milica explained to him what he is now, and that everything that happened yesterday was nothing but a illusion. "You see Stephano, when I gave you my blood, and told you everything you need to know, I left some things out, starting with that the things you hear in the movies and comic books, its all bullshit, well most of the things are. First of all the vampires are separated into 13 clans, the clan I belong to, the clan YOU belong to is the Ravnos." After an hour, Milica successfully explained everything there is to know about being a vampire, the clans, the traditions and such. And the two main groups of vampires, the Camarilla and the Sabbat. Passing on all her knowledge to Stephano.
Soon enough Stephano decided to explore the world, but stay close to his sire by living in the nearby cities and towns. Not liking the Sabbat that much due to them wanting to kill his sire, he decides to go to a Camarilla domain, Palamino Creek, while his sire decides to live in a nearby town, Blueberry.

Out of Character:

1.What kind of powers are you allowed to use in public? What stops you from using them? I'm allowed to use all powers in public, but I wouldn't use those that are visible to the human eye unless its necessary. Nothing really stops me from using them, but if I break the masquerade a few times(five) I would get my race-stripped, but IC'ly I'd most likely be hunted down, torpored, or banished out of the domain.

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. It depends on the person who is making a statement. But either way, I'd first try to look for a fellow vampire or another supernatural that may erase this human's memory. Now we get to the "depends" part. If the person that was making a statement was a hobo, I wouldn't do any drastic measures, and would take my time to find a supernatural that could alter his memory. If the person was someone important which words influence others, I'd kidnap the person until I found a mind-altering supernatural or make him blood-bound and tell him not to tell anyone, or the final and last resort which is to kill the said person.

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? Depending on what I am wanted for, rather accused for. If it was a minor thing like driving carelessly I would simply face my punishment, a night in a jail-cell wont kill me. If I was wanted for a more serious crime such as murder, and such, where I'd spend years in prison if arrested, I'd try to escape using my disciplines. Because if I am sent to jail for lets say 10 years, people would notice that I am not aging.


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 only a few things, a werewolf that's shapeshifting or a frenzied gangrel. I would observe from a safe distance until finding out what the said creature is. If it comes after me, I'd do anything necessary in order to survive. If it was a frenzied gangrel and a human see's this, attempting to take his leave, I'd stop the human and hand him over to the gangrel after he's calmed down, its his responsibility to not reveal himself and it affects not only him but all of the supernatural.

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? Not scared, rather very cautious, the bullets might not kill me, but they can definitely injure me, and reveal my true nature to the thugs.

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. A illegal job, anything that would make me a criminal, as a Ravnos my weaknesses are not being able to resist doing "bad" stuff, such as pick-pocketing or lying even if it doesn't involve me. A priority job might be an assassin or carjacker, using my disciplines to confuse my opponents or even hurt them mentally if I manage to acquire that much skill in the discipline. As for a side job, pick-pocketing would fit nicely.

Player information:

1.For how long have you been playing on Vampires, Werewolves and Humans roleplay? Almost a year now.

2.Make a list of your current and past characters.

Yasuo_Sight, Himawari_Kazuki, Jeffrey_Gain, Richard_Green, Miroslav_Reznev, Miroslav_Medici and Minato_Takahashi.

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? Yes.

4.Post a screenshot (embedded with  code, no links) of your admin record and activity (include each personal account):

Spoiler for Hidden:





5.If there is anything you would improve/change regarding the vampire race, what would it be? Nothing I can think of at the moment.
