“You come at the king, you best not miss.”
-Omar Little, The Wire
Sect: Camarilla, Sabbat (Ventrue Antitribu), Tal’Mahe’Ra (Danava)
Disciplines: Dominate, Fortitude, Presence
Ventrue Antitribu may choose the standard spread or change their in-clans to Auspex, Dominate, Fortitude through having participated in the Prayer to St. Gustav Ignobilis Ritus. They may even do this after character generation, with some caveats. See Rites of the Blood pg. 261 for more information.
The Danava are the Eastern lineage of the Ventrue. In the lands they call home, Danava are of the Brahmin or priestly caste, and are renowned as mystics. The Ventrue believe the Danava are a line of their clan who traveled East. The Danava believe the Ventrue originate from their Kshatryas, who traveled into the West long ago. Danava who travel to the West often do so as members of the Tal’Mahe’Ra.
Disciplines: Dominate, Fortitude, Sadhana
Danava Weakness: Danava consider animal blood beneath their caste and gain no sustenance from it; the blood of cows and pigs is especially unclean. In addition they must ritually consecrate a victim before they feed or the number of blood points they intake are reduced by half.
Merits & Flaws:
For more information on these Merits and Flaws, refer to Rites of the Blood pg. 261.
Connoisseur (2 pt. Mental merit, must have Auspex OO) – Your rarefied sense of taste gives you the power to learn much from a taste of blood.
Blessed by St. Gustav (4 pt. Supernatural Merit, Ventrue Antitribu only) – You went through the Prayer to St. Gustav ritus but instead of changing affinities, you gained Auspex as a fourth in-clan.
Uncommon Vitae Preference (2 pt. Supernatural Flaw) – Your rarefied Ventrue tastes are especially rarefied. This makes hunting more difficult for you. Try not to choose a prey facing imminent extinction, like WW2 vets. This flaw is not suitable for Danava.
For more information on these combination disciplines, refer to Lore of the Clans pg. 262.
