Revised Edition General Stereotypes

“Oh, yes, isn’t she exquisite ? Yes, she’s my newest find – I’m her muse, the sweet little creature. Imagine! And what of – oh, Thomas ? Why, I could hardly say – after all, he had his “15 minutes,” as they say, but it just wasn’t going to last, and it all became so very tedious, so I had to say adieu. Suicide ? Really ? Silly boy – he should thank me, then, that I didn’t give him the Embrace. It would have made things so difficult, after all…”
Us on ThemThem on Us
Assamite
“There is beauty in what they do, make no mistake, but it is a beauty best observed from a distance.” “A pursuit of beauty is luxury and, therefore, wasteful.”
Brujah
“On the first night, their passion terrifies. On the second night, their passion fascinates. On the third night, their passion inflames. After that… frankly, their passion begins to bore.” “Have any of these Kindred ever actually done anything ? Or do they just snipe at each other every night ?”
Gangrel
“As charmingly untamed as a tiger; as worthy of consideration as a housecat.” “Pointless waste.”
Giovanni
“They dress splendidly and are charmingly mannered. Why, then, do they frighten me so ?” “Effete and indolent, the Toreador nonetheless wield appreciable assets.”
Lasombra
“Their Miltonian conceit is dreadfully provocative, or provocatively dreadful, but they take it all so seriously.” “They possess the most tortured of unlives, and devious minds often lurk under their flighty façades.”
Malkavian
“The fractured kaleidoscope of their thoughts is enchanting at first glimpse. Gaze at it too long, though, and one grows prone to terrible headaches.” “Puppets who pull their own strings, or offer them to anybody who wants to makes them dance.”
Nosferatu
“Odious beasts! And to think that they are allowed in the halls of culture! Oh, how gauche.” “These pusbags sure make themselves easy to scare, don’t they ?”
Ravnos
“The subjects of many delightful stories – well, delightful, so long as one does not also feature to the tale.” “Poet shirts, wine and roses, leather jackets, artsy tattoos. Kill me if I ever start acting like one of those limpdicks.”
Setites
“It is inevitable, of course, that persons of epicurean refinement will in the course of eternity engage in dealings with those of… unsavoury character. Record well any transactions made, and repay all favours promptly.” “Such ardour is… admirable. I could become drunk on a Toreador’s passion, and might drain him dry trying to fill myself with it.”
Tremere
“One deals with the butcher and the bureaucrat because they provide useful conveniences. One graciously acknowledges services efficiently performed. One does not, though, invite the hired help to the soiree, nor take kindly to party crashers.” “They are Aesop’s grasshopper; we are the ant. They think to justify their immortality with their art and their parties, but the cold times are coming sooner than they think.”
Tzimisce
“To experience this clan’s alien fruits would be almost worth the price. Remember well that “almost,” dear.” “So lovely, so pliable, like dolls! Their most charming gift, though, is in the screaming.”
Ventrue
“Every masterwork must have its frame; every bust must have its pillar. This the Ventrue understand, and they perform their functions admirable.” “Truly, their great passion must be a curse, for Kindred lack the ability to create what they may only impotently observe.”
Caitiff
“Really. Who let them in ?”
Camarilla
“Through its auspices may Kindred and kine harmoniously coexist, each benefiting from the other’s presence.”
Sabbat
“Why would I wish to spend eternity wallowing in gore ?”

2nd Edition General Stereotypes

“I remember my first love, a beautiful woman with a silver laugh. For nine years we were constant companions, but in the end I had to let her go. She begged me to take her but I could not. You may call me cruel, but in the end I realised she was not a true artist, but an imitator. She was unworthy. I don’t think I have ever recovered.”

Brujah
“They have little respect for the accomplishments of civilisation, but they do understand the virtue of change.” “Effete bastards. They would make decent allies save for their addiction to the human vices.”
Gangrel
“We don’t claim to understand them. Are they Kindred at all ?” “We hold them in contempt because they have learned nothing better. They must learn to serve instead of take.”
Malkavian
“Though chaos can be beautiful, it would be a difficult life.” “Such gleeful hedonists – it is not a life they live, but an everlasting death. But if they should ever comprehend that, their party would end.”
Nosferatu
“These loathsome beasts ought to have been expelled from the Camarilla long ago. They hate all beauty and despise us for ours.” “Empty-headed whelps who should be spanked.”
Tremere
“Honesty is not a word we associate with this clan, but we respect them for their dedication.” “Idle hedonists. They do not understand that Gehenna will end their way of life forever.”
Ventrue
“The patricians of our kind, the Ventrue are the only ones with the refinement to appreciate art, though not as we do.” “Tasteful and creative, if a bit unrestrained.”
