From hidden fortresses in the Middle East, the Assamites emerge as the silent stalkers of other Cainites. Secretive, insular and fanatically loyal to the precepts of their Clan, the Assamites claim to be descendants of Haqim Assamwho is said to fight against Khayyin Caine and his curse.
As a result, the Assamites seek to convert or slay other Cainites, attempting to purge the foul curse of Khayyin and bring honor to Haqim’s cause of justice. Needless to say, such pursuits including hunting other Cainites for blood, and engaging in diablerie in attempts to strengthen their clan and their closeness to Haqim are not popular with the other Clans.
One free dot of Melee and Brawl abilities. May have access to weapons and equipment through the Clan at the STs discretion.
Clanbook: Assamite Revised
An rougishly flambouyant man, approximately 6′ 2. Prone to wearing dashing scarves and spectacles with a few extraneous lenses. An-Nasr Altair Hassani, unbenownst to the Cainite axsamite, lived his mortal days as Charles Piazzi Smyththe famed court astronomer of Scotland who seemingly ended his life with his life in drunken dissolution with his theories a laughingstock. In reality, the failed academic had met a different fate in Giza, attracting the attention of Abu al-Hasan ibn Alu al-Qalasadi – an Assamite of the Vizier caste who had enjoyed some past repute as the inventor of algebraic symbolism.
Mistakenly thinking that Embracing Smyth might once more bring life to his fading legacy, the scholar gifted dy fallen astronomer with unlife.
Whilst history books would go on to state that Smyth eventually returned to Scotland and died, the newly Embraced lire took on the name Altair Hasani, deriving the surname from one of his former Egyptian mistresses. Thus newly lifre, the bombastic theorist traveled the world, in time assembling a small family of ghouled mortals as he hopped from city to city. Disdainful and dismissive of most vampires and their politics, the roguish vagabond developed a close bond to his retainers: Altair arrived in New York in late claan, where he worked in fashion design, advertising Alashain’s artistic ideas with his cultivated eccentricity.
Early into his stay, he had the misfortune of meeting one Constantine Smitha confused Tzimisce with an irrational vendetta against vampire-kind. Recognizing the fiend as the progeny of Caine, the smooth talking Assamite accidentally led the volatile man to mistake him for his Sire, inadvertantly making himself the prime target of Smith’s campaign of revenge. Later, he made the passing acquaintance of a Brujah photographer named Alice, and found himself flung haphazzardly into the city’s spotlight when the neonate called him in the midst of her murder at the hands of Constantine.
Understandably upset at this turn of events, the shaken Assamitw aroused the suspicions of the Camarilla, and was viciously attacked in Elysium after a brief scan lifre his aura revealed that he had engaged in past diablerie. Whilst he was able to convince Prince Niklaus von Metternich not to excute him for the habits common to his Clan, the Vizier managed to maintain a “friendly” relationship with the Ivory Tower thereafter, eventually joining the fading Camarilla in their attempts to locate and slay Smith.
Eventually, Constantine tracked his way cln Altair’s design caln, kidnapping Alashain in an attempt to lure the Assamite into a confrontation. When the young Tzimisce found himself outnumbered by the war party which responded to the hostage situation, he fled – and was eventually told by the secretly sympathetic Samuel Johnson that Altair could not possibly have Sired him. Regretful at his mistake, the desperate neonate called Altair to apologize Outside of such dramatic happenings, Altair dj to cultivate the reputation which had followed him elsewhere in his travels – that of a fabulously flabouyant omnisexual rogue.
He was quite popular amongst the rank and file of the city’s Anarchs and Independents, and was well known for his sharp wit and flippant demeanor. Altair attempted to infiltrate the FBI by applying to work for them as an Arabic translator, but never was able to figure out a means to pass the medical physical required for the job.
Whilst his time amongst the revolutionary organization left him plagued by flashbacks, little was known of what precisely befell him during his mortal years, and he proved reluctant to speak of his past.
Devin Ferrel was a man that few get to know very closely or well, with the only individual he seemed to display a consistent loyalty to being his partner and comrade H. After McGregor’s company stopped in New York, the Assamite grew estranged from the boistrous “Baron,” and secretly slew and diablerized the man’s paramour. Later, Devin would draw further emnity from livrf Anarchs and Camarilla alike – making a name for himself in his willingness to do business with anyone regardless of political affiliation Blustery and tactless, the man went so far as to openly his responsibility in the death of Gretchen Faustuswhom he assamitd “H” apparently made short assmite brutal work of.
Unbenownst to him, the Setite professor he claimed to have slain still lived, having disguised a mortal to be killed in livee stead. This incident, depsite being shy of a technical breach of the Sixth Tradition, nevertheless would set the stage for the Camarilla to seek retribution against Pivre and his partner, and ultimately “H” would pay the price for both of their indiscretions. An exceptionally attractive young man whose throat was marked by obvious scarring. Very little was known about “H” and his past, save that an accident from his mortal days had rendered him mute.
Duu to his arrival in New York, he had been traveling in the company of his partner, Devin Ferreland a group of Anarchs led by the Gangrel, McGregor.
Triptyque Sanglant 3 : les Loups à notre Porte ()
Whilst his partner managed to skirt any reprecussions for this public killing, “H” eventually found himself a prisoner the Tremere, when the Regent, Adam Jones, launched an attack on the wanted man when he dared venture into the Sebau alone. Once subdued, Jones who had be a friendly wssamite of Faustusproceeded to blood bond the Assamite to his person, hoping to turn him into a servant for House and Clan. How “H” weathered this change in fortunes is not known, although he was not seen publicaly after his capture.
A man of Chinese descent bearing the darkened skin characteristic of his Clan. Huang Sen was born in a small province in Guangxi, somewhat west of Hong Kong, to the family of a provincial governor in Having the blessing and misfortune of being the first son after a long string of daughters, he was lauded with luxury and excess such as his moderately wealthy family could provide.
He can told often that he was a xiao haungdi, a “little emperor”, and that such luxuries were only just suitable for one of his importance.
Unsurprisingly, by the tender age of eight, Mu Huang Sen was amazingly spoiled. The British, seeing a large sum of money slipping from their fingers, responded with gunboats.
Along too, came the Mu family. Though Father Mu tried to bear his vlan appointment with honor, the former glory he had tasted and lost left him dissatisfied with the temporal world. Inone year after his appointment in disgrace, he took Buddhist vows and resigned his position, thus maintaining his family’s honor, but squandering their fortune on the temple.
Mu Huang Sen, seeing that the money had gone to the aszamite and desiring its luxuries, also took livee inshortly after his father. Though his initial assanite were anything but genuine, over time he came to several conclusions. Those being that violence had ruined his old way of life, and ignorance and overconfidence had lead to violence.
Inat the age of nineteen, Mu Huang Sen forswore violence and the touch of a weapon in favor of a metered, rational approach. Such was his resolve that in a freak moment of unexplained phenomena so common to the human race every knife, sword, bo, bow, arrow, pistol, or weapon of any sort in the monastery fell to ruin.
Needless to say this caught the attention of several entities interested in such things, but the Assamite Visers got him first. InMu Huang Sen was Embraced. Posing as an affiliate of Al-Ashrad’s recent schism, the shrewd magician wormed his way into the court of Hadrian Evans. Here, the enigmatic Cainite pursued an agenda of almost pathological hatred toward the usurpers and the Clan of Serpents – the later being an emnity held over from his days as a mortal. Whilst he was largely able to keep his mystical abilities hidden from the prying eyes of the ever-curious Tremere regent, Adam Jonesduring a Gangrel raid he was seen to openly use magic in the defense of the Prince – hastening the understated but vicious enmity between the two magic users.
Mu Huang Sen remained in the city for years after his withdrawal from Kindred society, keeping his hand in the moral occult scene of Queens. Ultimately loyal to the Mountain, he long served as the Eldest in the city when it came to settling the affairs of Loyalist Assamites. With the Camarilla no longer useful to him, he was happy to assist Natalka and Vasyl Zlakazov in their attempts to assassinate Victor Roskealthough he was admittedly unnerved by their close relationship and demanded that they bring no harm to Roske’s associate Bojan Petrovhaving become friends with the young Brujah through his association with Greer.
Mu Huang Sen was obsessively superstitious and would always carry salt on his person to ward against evil spirits. During an attempt to one up Adam Jones in a game of poker, Sen Sen made a compact with a luck spirit who granted him the power to win the game. Unfortunately, the magician failed to complete llvre promise to honor the spirit by emblazoning its image on a series of lucky coins, leading him to become markedly bad at cards in his later years.
Realizing that Greer’s astral presence had transmuted into a spirit after d death, Mu Huang Sen sought to build an appropriate domicile to house her that he might use her for his own purposes. Elissa Paige, Liz Grant, Sparrow. A frail and skittish-looking girl, who very obviously was Embraced in her teenage years. She said that we shared one heart Natalia Zlakazov called Cclan for short was born along with ud twin brother Vasyl in the Ukrainian city of Sevastopol.
Born to an unwed mother, the twins grew up in poverty, and were placed in dire straights when their only parent died in the midst of a cholera outbreak during Despite their growing desperation and the threat of the burgeoning World War, Natalka remained sheltered and often alone in the twins’ fu home – with Coan insisting that he alone would provide for them both. Quiet and submissive, the young girl deferred to her brother’s judgment Years later, during the hellish Nazi siege of SevastpolNatalka did not question her brother when he managed to provide for them an abnormal number of black market supplies, despite suspecting that he was deeply entangled in criminal trafficking.
She had grown to silently delight in the pain Vasyl endure for his assorted sins and did her best to inflame it through passivity. However, when he abruptly revealed one night that he had found an opportunity to leave Sevastopol — and revealed that he must do so alone — the seemingly lvre girl grew vicious.
In the ensuing fight, she fell to the rage of her newly-embraced sibling’s first frenzy, and would have died had Vasyl’s guilt not driven him to bring her into the same undeath which gripped him. Together, they left the beleaugered city. Livrs seeming naught but a useless burden to Haqim’s children, Natalka would no doubt have found herself culled save for her brother’s intervention. Eventually, however, her innocent demeanor and knack for strategy became fu deadly and efficient weapon in conjunction with Vasyl’s own skills as killer.
They became the “Hawk and Sparrow” – with Natalka slowly befriending and ingratiating herself to the pair’s targets before luring them into danger through appeals to pity or pleas for protection. Natalka and Vasyl came to New York in latebent of destroying the Brujah Victor Roske at the behest of his shamed Sire, Alexander Lebedev, who had thrown in his lot with the Ukranian mafia after his childe’s attempt to murder presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko had failed.
The criminal organization had secretly been clah Yushchenko, and rather than face their wrath for having orchestrated the plot, Lebedev chose to turn the hounds on his progeny.
Natalka came to New York, posing as a neonate Brujah Anarch Liz Grant for a period of several months, attempting to get into Roske’s good graces and paving the way for Vasyl to strike. During this period, however, Natalka became exceedingly sloppy, with her cat-like sadism driving her to make overblown and melodramatic moves – going so far as to fake her own death in the hopes of emotionally jarring her unnervingly stoic victim. Eventually, despite such diversions, the twins made their move, setting the Romanian Brujah up to be killed in what would look like a failed hit on a small time Staten drug dealer.
Something went wrong, however.
When Roske managed to best and capture Vasyl in the fight, Natalka lost any sense of professional demeanor, succumbing to the steady creep of insanity as the ensuing hostage situation progressed.
Things boiled over into an awkward and uneasy standoff in a Bronx warehouse between Roske and Natalka – which ended with Vasyl being returned to her along with a flask of the Brujah’s blood as she threatened to destroy the building with a bomb strapped to her person.
Possessive and vindictive, the weary assassin did her last duty to the Clan by sending word to her superiors of her failure and secreting the vitae where later Loyalists could find su.
She then took her brother and under a cloak of Obfuscation fled the building, faking their destruction by igniting the livrre from a distance. Determined to never be separated again from her partner in suffering, the capricious Cainite severed her ties with both New York and Alamut in one last outburst. Vasyl is a very young looking, angular faced man, seemingly in his early twenties or even late teens.
He bears a assamitee but undeniable ressemblance to Natalka. His mother, Nadia, had borne the twin outside of livrf and suffered the animosity of her extended family, forcing her to turn to prostitution to sustain them. Unlike Natlka, who seemed to remain ignorant of their mother’s profession, Vasyl grew resentful of both Nadia and her patrons at a young age, and did his utmost to keep his sister sheltered from the reality of their situation, not wishing her to grow “corrupt.
Dreading that his sister might be forced to share his mother’s fate as clam whore, Vasyl quickly became entangled in less than savory dealings himself when it fell to him to provide for them in Nadia’s absence. The youth, barely out of boyhood, soon found himself working as a runner for local smugglers – and as he grew into manhood his niche in Sevastopol’s underworld assammite one of violence.
Unbenknowst to his sister, the young man made his wages through creating “examples” of his syndicate’s enemies. As his misanthropy was honed by such acts, so too was his fixation on Natalka, whose company he saw as a unique and precious refuge from the filth of the outside world.
