Androvikus dwelt in Herodium where he lay dying, poisoned by the Nictuku. However, he told his childe that not all of the Nictuku were evil monsters of legend, and that this depiction of the bloodline was used by the eldest among the Nosferatu to frighten the young and ensure their obedience. He said the Nictuku are nothing but envoys – some are assassins, while others are messengers and ambassadors.
Androvikus imbued his childe with a mission to bring a message of solidarity to his clan. According to ancient Androvikus, should the Nosferatu wished to prevail, they would have to embrace solidarity for the high clans were too rooted in power for them to play the game of kings – in a way that the only hope was to stand together, so that a strike against one Nosferatu deprived the attacker of the aid of all Nosferatu.
Androvikus and his childe communicated through the smell and taste of their blood, a subtle code few could fathom and none could spy on. This practice was mentioned as the "Blood Apocrypha".
