Blood of Blood
Blood is ‘life force essence’ and to drink it is to take on aspects of the person whose essence you are consuming. This is measured as a game mechanic by the use of ‘Flavours’.
‘Blood of Blood’ is a method used by many vampires to ascend their generational level toward purity. It has been outlawed in many regions. As a minor infraction it simply means two vampires sharing one anothers life force and therefore temporarily taking on each others abilities, such as between lovers or a hunter troupe; a form of tribal unification that is a way of being in some regions. As a major infraction it means the death of a donor and the complete theft of their abilities by the usurper. Traditionally this would include their political replacement and seizing control of their empire, stronghold and resources although in such incidents a Justicar is usually summoned to officiate or deny legitimacy of the coup.
