Vampire society is divided by clans. This is a vampire group of shared "Blood" or heritage, who can trace their Generations back to a common ancestor, in particular to the Third Generation. Each clan has greater familiarity with a set of three Disciplines, a clan weakness largely unique to its members, and various stereotypes attributed to it as a result of a tendency to Embrace individuals with certain characteristics. In the mod, most content is tied to faiths, disciplines (which are obtainable by everyone with effort) and regions. But clans still play a big role, and some content is tied to being part of one.
