aristocratic and regal, the Ventrue are the lords of the Camarilla.
It was Clan Ventrue that provided the cornerstone of the Camarilla,
and it is Clan Ventrue that directs and coaxes the Camarilla
in its darkest hours. Even in the modern age, the majority of
princes descend from Clan Ventrue. The Ventrue would, of course,
have things no other way. In the tradition of noblesse oblige,
the Ventrue must lead the other clans for their own good.
ancient nights, Ventrue were chosen from nobles, merchant princes
or other wielders of power. In modern times the clan recruits
from wealthy "old-money" families, ruthless corporate climbers,
and politicians. Although Ventrue move in the same social circles
as the Toreador, they do not fritter away their existences in
frivolity and idle chatter. The Ventrue proudly wear the privileges
of leadership, and stoically bear its burdens. Thus has it always
been; thus shall it always be.
