One of you.

A score of me. A score of us. You will belong, blood and soul.

You will be mine and ours.
- Hannah Featheringay, Melissid Matriarch

These are the vampires other Kindred whisper about in the dark. These monstrous lineages, terrifying, taboo and bizarre, mystify even the Damned. Each is surrounded with a fog of rumor and myth that makes the truth of their power impossible to know for certain—until their fatal flesh is faced in person. This sequel to the highly successful Bloodlines: The Hidden™ features nine new bloodlines, each with unique supernatural Disciplines or blood magics, along with an intriguing history and collection of mysterious legends for each bloodline, so Storytellers can introduce them with an aura of fear.

This book includes:

  • Nine new, secretive vampire bloodlines for your chronicle
  • Unique, strange and elusive Disciplines, Devotions and rituals
  • New character types for players and Storytellers


  • Bron: These Kindred are tied to the questing aspects of the legendary Holy Grail. The bloodline often appears in one of two primary aspects, that of the Christian Grail hunter (Joseph of Arimithea; the classic Arthurian knight) or that of Bran the Blessed (a Celtic folk hero). The Bron's signature discipline is Crochan, from the Welsh word for “cauldron,” which allows them to harness and manipulate the power of Vitae to regenerate their undead flesh
  • The Carnival: This bloodline is effectively a nomadic cult of carnival freaks. Their Discipline allows them to contort themselves, do strange things with their limbs, and eventually even “absorb” another vampire into their bodies to create a monstrous sort of conjoined twin. The Carnival are obsessed with making themselves more grotesque, with that there signature discipline, The Show, feed that need.
  • Children of Judas: These Kindred are fascinated with suicide, and have ties (obviously) to Judas, the original betrayer, who killed himself in despair over his treachery. They’re more than a little morbid, and they have the ability to prod victims to depths of misery and despair. Few Disciplines inspire such fear and hatred as the Suicide King's Despond, and with good reason. The Kindred play the Danse Macabre in part to distract themselves from the horror and futility of their own existence.
  • Galloi: This Nosferatu bloodline can abate some of its fearsomeness, but its members must bathe in their own blood. The Galloi have developed a bloodline that is key to there own existance. The Discipline of Taurobolium is a single power that gains in intensity as the Galloi becomes more adept with its use. As the vampire becomes more capable, she can grant the subject greater refinements to his appearance.
  • Gulikan: These vampires have an amazingly acute sense of smell. They’re a Daeva bloodline, so that refined sense of smell has actually turned into an olfactory addiction. They have a significant element of exotic mystery about them, as well, making them an interesting “visitor” bloodline.
  • Kuufukuji: The Hungry are... complex. On one hand, they’re ascetics, monks and contemplatives. On the other hand, their origin story associates them with prostitutes. A balance of opposed principles punctuates their Discipline, as well, which focuses on understanding and controlling the Beast.
  • Macellarius: These vampires are natural gluttons, gorging themselves on human flesh and growing corpulent in the process. The bloodline supposedly has its roots in ancient Rome, and where other Kindred find them, the Macellarius accumulate both power and success.
  • Melissidae: Individual members of the Melissidae bloodline build discrete hives of minions, whom they brainwash into losing sense of self. You’ll see a strong insect theme here, both among actual bees and people who swarm around the vampire.
  • Players: This bloodline of Kindred actively upholds the pop-culture aspect of vampires. The shallowness of the bloodline makes for individuals of storied depth (interesting themes include loss of identity, delusions of what vampirism is, etc.). The fact that they’re predicated on what others think vampires are offers a self-aware twist on vampires as a whole and the bloodline system in general.
