Vampire: the Masquerade - Sins of the Father
History of the Kindred
And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Caine was the first Vampire. Cursed by God, he sired the race. He left to Nod, traveling east of Eden, and with his three childre, formed Enoch, the First City. The three sired 13, the Third Generation, the Antediluvians. Their wickedness and rampant spread of their curse forced the hand of God, flooding the earth.
Following this, Caine dictated that no more would he permit his race to propagate. In defiance, the Third generation rose up against the Second, destroying them. In his wrath, Caine cursed his grandchilder to be forever as they were.
For a time, the clans prospered. But then came the dark ages, and with them, dissension. The Tremere, upstart vampires, drank of the soul of Saulot, one of the Third generation. The Giovanni did the same to the Cappadocians. Some decided to rebel against their elders, becoming the first Anarchs, even diablerizing their Antedeluvians.
Meanwhile, humans began their Inquisition, driving vampires to ground. In response, several clans banded together to form the Camarilla, while those of the Anarchs would form the Sabbat, the Sword of Caine. Others remained independent and outside the influence of both.
More recently, the second Anarch rebellions took place, liberating some areas from Camarilla control. Events have been taking place, some of which are worrying.
Most of which are also secret…
