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? From a human's view the vampire is just an immortal bloodsucker that is dead, feeds only at night and may transform into bats, that's what most people think, and they think it's a myth, but in reality they aren't just that, the vampires, kindred, or cainities, as they commonly call themselves are both similar to and different from what me might expect. Vampires are indeed dead, that is true, they do feed on blood, that is true, and they might have powers such as incredible speed, they can jump a whole lot and they do have incredible speed, but not only that, they may spawn in shadows and become a monstrous-like creatures that you cannot touch or they might revive the dead and make an army, they may even teleport
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? In my opinion, a vampire must not reveal itself due to the big consequences that may come upon it. First, when the vampire shows itself to the mortals the human society would panic, as they'd then try to find out where they live and try to exterminate them. Most of the humans aren't wrong with /some/ of the vampire's weaknesses such as being staked in the heart or burning them. Government agencies might also attempt to capture the vampires in order to experiment onto them, so simply because of these reasons, I myself believe that vampires shouldn't expose themselves, even if it comes to kill a Shane in the middle of the street.

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

This is the most importatnt Tradition, this rule protects the race of Caine from the discovery by the mortal world that would unite them against from fear and hatred. Many of the Princes and Kindred authorities spend a whole lot of time, influence and money to deal with the breach of this tradition and of the masquerade.

"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."

This Tradition is mostly used by the Princes, to employ their widest range of interpretations when it comes to the second Tradition. Whenever you enter someone's territory you have to present yourself to the Prince and have him acknowledge your basic information, and then he'd decide whether you're going to be allowed on the territory or not.

"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."

This Tradition is about embracing, it implies that a Kindred /must/ first seek their permission to the Elder before performing the embrace to create a progeny, and if the Kindred performs the embrace without the Elder's permission the Progeny and the sire will both be executed.

"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."

This Tradition imposes a twofold rule.First part is that the sire owns her progeny until such time until the sire deems the progeny fit enough to face the Kindred Society on its own, second is that the childe might bring trouble upon his sire's head, and this causes trouble to both, because the sire is directly responsible for the actions and consequences for her childe.

"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."

This Tradition is a little bit linked to the second one, this rule states that the Prince, former owner of the territory has the right to choose who may or may not stay in its domain. The Prince may decide further actions, to punish or just to make said Kindred leave.

"Sixth Tradition: The Destruction
Thou art is 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."

This Tradition is linked to the Blood Hunt, the Lextialionis, it is the Princely decree that declares another vampire to be hunted and killed. The Blood Hunt is called upon a Kindred for the ultimate punishment levied for the most grievous "crimes"

4. What is a Clan?
Clan is a term that is being used by the vampires to describe the major groups of Cainites that share common characteristics passed on by the blood. At the moment there are 13 major clans known, each one of them has been founded by an Antediluvian. An Antediluvian is a member of the Third Generation.

5. What is a Bloodline? A Bloodline is a term used to describe a group of vampires that share a rather common lineage. The term is used to refer to the vampires that share a sire, a grand sire, a grand GRAND sire and so on, the Bloodlines usually have some inherent distinction from the other 13 clans founded by the Antediluvian, be it their own weaknesses and disciplines, most of the Bloodlines are legitimately a clan, within a clan.

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 act of transforming a mortal into a Cainite, this act is being made by the Vampire, first it begins with drying the mortal out of blood and then transferring some of her blood into the mortal's body, this process ends with the mortal waking up in an immediate hunger, therefore passing the curse of Caine to the mortal.
The process of Diablerie also called the Amaranth is a term used by the vampires to describe the act of drinking another Cainite's blood, in the process drawing their soul into one's own.
Both of the practices are commonly heard about because they're being used quite often by vampires, be it the Embrace or the Amaranth.
The act of Embrace isn't fully forbidden if done correctly, but on the other side, the Diablerie act is strongly forbidden by the Camarilla Traditions. but the majority of the Sabbat and Assamites consider it quite acceptable.

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 vampire generation is a concept that states how far a vampire strays away from the original, the 1st generation, or "Caine". This whole curse began it's course when Caine killed his brother Abel after that God has placed a curse on him which resulted in him becoming an immortal creature that is also named a vampire.Caine then embraced three mortals, which resulted in the second generation, then the third generation vampires that founded the known thirteen clans. This process went on until they've reached the 16th generation.

Spoiler for Generation quotes:
Caine, or 1st generation:
Caine has the dubious honor of being the first among the damned, the malignant seed from which all other Cainites claim their heritage. He is regarded as the First Generation.

2nd Generation:
The most prominent tale says Caine has embraced only three childer - the mythical second generation and sires of the 13 Antediluvians. Like Caine, little is known about the three, who most likely all met their end in the Great Flood or in the upheavals of the Second City. Even the mighty Antediluvians were said to be hesitant to speak of their sires, beings of incredible beauty, but also tyrants and demigods.

3rd Generation:
It is with the third generation that myth and legend meet reality. The Book of Nod claims that only 13 vampires belong to the third generation and that each is the progenitors of one of the 13 clans. Only Caine and the Three, however, know how many of the third generations were actually created. They are quite literally "Antediluvians," having survived the biblical flood by slumbering under the waters to hide from the sun. They are so ancient it is said they can exist only in torpor, that state of dark slumber that affects all Cainites of advanced age.

4th & 5th Generations:
Known as Methuselahs, the vampires of the fourth and fifth generations are almost as powerful as their sires. Although they are old, some have escaped the call of lasting torpor, and even those who have failed are only condemned to slumber a few centuries at a time. Their power lies in their advanced Disciplines and age. Few vampires of subsequent generations can match a Methuselah's power. It is said they can erupt and command the legions of Hell itself. Their age is also their greatest weakness, though.

6th & 7th Generations:
See also Seventh Generation (disambiguation)
Younger than the Methuselahs and Antediluvians, many of the vampires of the sixth and seventh generation are still elders of Cainite society. While few Cainites ever cross paths with a fourth generation vampire, most encounter the self-styled lords of the sixth and seventh generations. Although they are not as powerful as the Methuselahs, these Cainites are still formidable opponents, who gladly sacrifice mystical and spiritual power for temporal influence. These Cainites rule over vast kingdoms, donning the crown of monarchs and commanding armies of younger Cainites and mortal thralls.

8th & 9th Generations:
Achieving a delicate balance between age and generation, these vampires are the most visible ones of the 14th century. Although they are young, the blood of Caine flows strong through their veins, usually enough to give them an edge over those of higher generation. They are nowhere near as old as most Cainites of lower generation, however, which places them in a delicate position. Most Cainites of eighth and ninth generation overcome this disadvantage by siring large covens of childer.

10th & 11th Generations:
While they are comparatively young, most vampires created within the last few centuries belong to the tenth and eleventh generation. The blood of Caine still flows through them, but they have only recently overthrown the shackles of their sires and become powers in their own right.

12th & 13th Generations:
Fledgling and neonates, these vampires are separated by blood and millennia from Caine. Nonetheless, all are powerful creatures by virtue of their damned nature. Although they lack the powers of the lower generations, the vampires of the 12th and 13th generations stand above men, capable of besting the strongest mortal knight in battle and wielding influence over barons, merchants and courts.

14th & 15th Generations:
The last generation is known as thin-blooded vampires and are heavily crippled. During the Dark Ages the Thirteenth Generation was believed to be the last, but in the Final Nights this is comprised of the Fourteenth Generation and Fifteenth Generations.

16th Generation:Although the 15th generation has long since been the highest generation, the numbers of the 16th generation are rising.

8. What are the two notable Anarch Revolts? What sort of effect did they have on the vampires?
There were two notable Anarch Revolts that have shaped the history of vampires: the first revolt, also named the Great Revolt was in the 15th century, and the Second Revolt took place in the 20th Century.
The Great Revolt took place in the 15th Century where hunters have begun attacking everyone that defiled against God. The Young Kindred had to face them alone while the Elders stood into the shadows, watching them fight them, one day a young Brujah had taken a decision, that that decision was to ask the Elders for help, which of course was refused. This act resulted into the creation of the Anarchs, a group of vampires that want equality overall, where ranks do not matter, during this creation the Anarchs have managed to the process of Diablerie on an Elder.

The second Anarch Revolt happened in Los Angeles, in the 20th Century, where the Prince was alerted to the growing presence of the Anarch Kindred all around the zone. The Prince didn't really care that much about it, but in the end, it ended up bad for him, which resulted in him being attacked and killed, during this process the Anarch presence in the world grew yet again.

Character Story:(Min. 300 words; Max. 3000)

First Chapter.
It all began on a shady night, in the city of Damascus, where a girl was born into a rather mediocre family. She had grown up with her father and mother, she was well taught, she knew how to properly read and write.She spent most of her young age helping her parents and working as a medic in her village.
Ashada was a very loyal girl, and by how the tradition works in Siria, someone had to pay her father a lot of money to marry his girl, so her father gave permission to a shady guy to
marry her.Ashada married at the raw age of 18 to a man called Abdul KuhlmanHer husband was hiding something away from Ashada, which led the girl to want to see what’s going on.In a night she found some books about black arts and rituals, she got really interested in them and started reading the books. 1746, November, Ashada stood in her house which was placed near a small village as she was studying and practicing the black magic trying to learn it properly and perhaps even start trying her first ritual, she has been studying black magic for several years now.She had been reading some herbs books as she got interested into helping the other villagers in the little village, so she went every day on a small trip for collecting herbs is now late, Ashada yawns as she closes the book heading to her bed, she then closes her eyes falling asleep.The next day she heard rumors that her parents and his husband were dead into his shop, the villagers talked about some bandits that raided her father's shop.When she found out all she felt was anger, nothing else...She went straight to the shop her father made, as she found her parents and her husband laid down on the ground in a blood puddle. Ashada was not able to think straight at that moment she saw such scene, so she went crazy. Ashada heard some kids that were playing around the shop, she went outside to see what's going, as she found three teenagers who were playing in the mud. When the teenagers saw Ashada's face they immediately began running away. Ashada had luck and cornered one of them and begun beating him down with a pebble she had found on the ground.She beat the poor kid so hard that she opened a wound into that kid's face, she did not stop until some villagers grabbed her, she saw the kid bleeding from his head, but she did not feel bad, she felt good.She didn't care what she did at all, but in her thoughts, she hated the fact that she was being ignored and loathed, which caused her to spend her time alone to learn and expand her knowledge about ancient occult and herbalism.She was colder day by day, she saw absolutely no point in any emotions.Ashada kept learning and gathering herbs.
The villagers did not want to kick her out of the village for one reason, she was the only healer from the whole area, some of them even started calling her “Witch of Damascus”.

Chapter Two.

Several months later, a woman wearing a black robe and a few clothes on her was looking through the window straight at her for 3 minutes, Ashada was wondering what he was doing.Ashada knew that no-one would come and help her or rescue her and Instead she looked back showing absolutely no inferiority to that stranger.The next day, the stranger came again and was looking at her, and the third-day Ashada had enough of that and she yelled at the woman”WHAT?!”, the woman approached Ashada and entered her house, the woman asked her”Are you the Witch of Damascus?”, she asked. Ashada responded with a nod.She presented her with a scroll and asked for her input on the matter, given her reputation as a sorcery practitioner. She gave her insight on what appeared to be a ritual of sorts, the woman put a pouch of coins on the table and left.For years she felt like being watched, she did not see anything but her instincts made her cautious.She was avoiding trips during the nights due to the feeling of being watched.
At the age of 30 the strange woman appeared once more near her shop, she greeted her with a wave of the hand. She nodded back, waiting for the strange woman to come closer:”Hello there, I am Ajlal Azul, and I have come from a long distance, I’ve been watching you for a lot of time, and I came here to offer you something, I myself carry a curse and a gift, and I shall give you both of them.” That offer intrigued Ashada a lot and she invited her in”Ashada” she said to her” My name is Asha…” Ashada did not even finish saying her name as the female grabbed her, Ashada began screaming, but no-one was able to hear her...Ashada tried to break free but her attempts weren’t successful. The female then sunk her fangs into her neck, she was able to feel the fangs piercing her skin with ease. She felt so tired and out of power that she felt into an unconscious-like state...The female did not stop, she continued till all her blood was drained out of her system. The female put her down slowly as she fed Ashada a small portion of her blood...Ashada felt the pain, the change, it began suddenly, her organs withered, she became undead, all her system was replaced, everything was just blood.
She woke up in anger, the witch that she has been turned into a beast, she went into a frenzy, she quickly rushed into the town, looking for something to feed onto, fortunately, the neighbors did not hear a thing. Ajlal Azul silenced the area so they wouldn’t get noticed...Ashada saw a man knocked out by her house, she rushed towards him as she sunk her fangs into his neck, Ajlal stood by the corner watching the scene in silence...Ashada was stopped moments after as she got thrown into a wall by her sire, the man was still alive, she could hear the heart pumping the remaining blood that was left into his system.The first nights were spent at her house, learning the basics of unlife. How to survive the curse, how to control the inner beast and how to cling on to humanity. 
  After months of traveling, they arrived at Alamut. She felt welcome there, and the feeling of being lonely disappeared completely. Ashada finally felt like she belonged somewhere. The Tremere blood curse had been cast on the clan a while before she was embraced, and her primary focus when she arrived was to help her brotherin’ get rid of the curse.Ashada spent one more century in the fortress, expanding her knowledge of the occult, learning rituals and perfecting her disciplines.

Chapter Three.

While being in Alamut Ashada and her Sire had received a quest from an Elder, they had to find an ancient book regarding some information about the Tremere curse. The book was in Romania, in Transylvania. She was traveling for some nights and she was sleeping in a Motel. Once she arrived at the place she needed to when she woke up and went outside as she saw two males waiting for her outside::”Mind if you follow us?”The men asked:”I don’t.”Ashada responded as she begun following the men. She entered a house and she was lead by the men underground as she entered a shady room. In the room Ashada seen 5 other men at a table, with cups full of blood.Ashada nodded to them as she was looking at the man in the middle of the table.The man in the middle of the table nodded back as he spoke: ”Hello there, I believe you’re one of the assassins, I have some tasks for you…”The man spoke to her as he puts some paper down on the table. Ashada went near the table as she grabbed the paper reading through it.She had spent several years completing the tasks and looking to accomplish the quest given by the Elder, she succeeded on finding that book but it didn’t contain enough information,  she also found an ancient blade in a dungeon which she looted from a dead body, she took it and kept it all time.Ashada went to a dark alleyway as she says: “ I found something, but I don’t think it’s enough…”Her sire emerged from the shadows as she grabbed the book from Ashada, opening it and reading through it.”Good job my childe... Now you need to go back to the Fortress”After Ajlal Azul ended her sentence four men appeared in the alleyway as one of them said.:”The Elder knew that you’re not here to help us, assassin, now you may receive your final death!” one of them said as he withdrew his blades.Ashada quickly moved her hand to her back as she quickly withdrew her ancient sword. Her sire summoned two daggers.The kindred approached as one of them gave the others the”Go ahead” sign. Her sire spoke to Ashada”Take the book and go back to Alamut, I will hold them off, go Ashada, go!”, Ashada quickly ran from the scene as she hitched a ride going back to Alamut as fast as possible.Unfortunately for Ashada, a bloodhunt has been called for her. When she arrived at Alamut she was told about the blood hunt. The Elder told her to depart from her brothers so they won’t get problems, she nodded as she left the mountain. She went back to Romania and went to the airport as quick as possible and took a flight to San Andreas. After her landing, she called a cab and went into Red County, to Palomino Creek:”Well… This place might be nice, I hope no-one is gonna find me in here".

Out of Character:

1.What kind of powers are you allowed to use in public? What stops you from using them? Every power can be used in the public, nothing stops me from using them at all, until the point where I'd break the masquerade and I'd reveal myself to the mortals, which will probably result into me being removed from the race.But powers such as Dominate, Auspex or Dementation may be used in the public to a limit.

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 all depends, my first plan would be to convince him that his words won't matter a lot, and then they will consider that man crazy. My second plan would be erasing that man's memory so he wouldn't remember what happened.If I won't be able to find someone to do that for me I'd probably consider ghoulifying that person if he's of any use, and if not my last resort would be killing him so my long life and other Kindred's life won't be ruined.

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?
I would probably try to use the disciplines I've learned so I can escape without getting myself or the officer hurt. In order to avoid such encounters, I'd rather stay low and not get caught in doing anything bad that may lead to me becoming a wanted individual.

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 might be a frenzying gangrel that doesn't really care about it's life or it might be a shape shifter. I would most likely watch out for myself and go away from the scene, and in case that said creature approaches me I'd probably use all my powers to flee away from the scene.

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?I'd not be totally scared due to me being immortal, but I'd probably be careful. Me and my partner we'd probably try to get out out of this situation and we'd do everything possible not to pick up a fight, even though money wouldn't affect me that much considering I can sell information for money.

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. Considering my clan the best job fit would be an Assasin, and a side job would fit me best as a daily worker, perhaps a fisherman, a farmer or even a hunter.

Player information:

1.For how long have you been playing on Vampires, Werewolves and Humans roleplay? I've played here for about two years now.

2.Make a list of your current and past characters.
Jonathan_M_Good(Past) ; Colton_Lawson(past) | Wayne_Hernandez(current) | Benny Balik(current) | Benny Carson(past) | Lilly_Deonne_Anita(past) | Adalina Morgenstern(past) | Sonia Vouzeh(past) | Shelby Willson(past) | Angela Stewart(past) | Katy Andronie(Past) | Avianna Kennicot(past) |

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, I fully understand

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

5.If there is anything you would improve/change regarding the vampire race, what would it be? None.

You could've fit all of this in 1, maximum 2 posts, but w/e. You also have a tiny mistake in the 2nd post at the end of it regarding the format.

Besides what I've mentioned, I like this CP and wish you the best of luck with this character.
