Amphivena is the unique Discipline of the Gorgons, an ancient bloodline of Kindred who claim descent from Medusa's handmaidens.

Named for the Amphisbaena, the two-headed snake created from Medusa's blood, Amphivena grants Gorgons control of snakes and draws on the bloodline's serpentine origins to strengthen their bodies, as well as enhancing certain Ventrue powers.
