The Assamite

From the desserts of the east come the Assamites.The Assamites are known throughout vampire society as a clan of murderous assassins, working for whoever can pay their price. The price they charge for their work is the vitae of other Kindred; for the Assamites, diablerie is the greatest sacrament.
Much of the Assamite symbology is Arabic in origin, great warriors that Excel in efficient assassinations missions  and they rarely miss their mark, even when they claim independence like the Giovanni clan, clan Assamite can be contracted either by Camarilla, Anarchs or independents, the clans unique discipline is called Quietus, wich allows the kindred to make no sounds around him, cause weakness to his enemies, and make his own blood toxic to kindred and mortals alike, coating their blades with their acidic blood or spitting it at their foes.

 Unlike the other lines of vampires, who become paler as they age, Assamites grow darker with age their eldest members being the shade of obsidian. There is one notable exception to this; Al Ashrad, former Amr of the clan, has pure white skin and no one has been able or willing to explain this. Like the Tremere, the Assamites dont have a curse imposed by Caine himself but by the Tremere, the Tremere cursed the Assamites that had an addiction in committing diablere on other vampires that they curse all Assamites with an allergy to kindred blood, irony fell upon them, the urge to commit diablere could possibly end the unlife of an Assamite because of the wicked Tremeres curse. In the modern nights clan Assamites still enforce the Assassin roll with extraordinary skill. Rumors spread in the modern nights that a few Assamites are freed of the Tremere curse and that they can partake on diablere once again, but after reaquiring their blood addiction of kindred vitae, doing so can send them into a frenzy which is a contradiction to their silent methodical way of conducting their Assassinations.

  6. @Alphabeta Al Ashrad is of clan Assamite, infact he is the only known Assamite that his skin is not ebony although being of 5th generation.Al Ashrad is of the sorcerer caste. Even when no one can explain his ivory skin he is of clan Assamite.
