The Angellis Ater are an odd bloodline that crosses boundaries between Baali and Lasombra. They have the same weakness as other Lasombra — they do not cast reflections.


The bloodline has been around since a least the Middle Ages, descended in part from a powerful Baali called Azaneal. This monstrous vampire acted as a leader within the Baali line for a time, and twisted the orthodoxy of some Kindred enough to create a kind of heresy, one that was all too attractive to the Lasombra. 

The  Clan of Shadows’ power base traditionally included the Catholic Church, and over time the Angellis Ater made at least some inroad with these pious (or pious-seeming) Lasombra. How much influence in the Church they were able to wield is not known, but they did survive the Inquisition.

Angellis Ater are rare in modern nights, but they do exist.


The so-called “black angels” believe that vampires are the instrument of Satan, and they worship sin and the darkness of the soul. Their Lasombra blood lets them reach into the blackness, pull it forth and manipulate it, and the black angels become dependent upon and addicted to use of the Obtenebration Discipline over time.


The Angellis Ater have lacked organisation since their fall during the Dark Ages. After Namtaru's Tomb rampage when Azaneal almost killed all of them, they started to slowly decrease in number, until around fifty remained during the 20th century. In fact, when the Baali rose again, Angelis Ater started to work with the Inquisition again, searching for those infernalists and trying to eradicate them with their knowledge about Demons. Infact, an Angelis Ater can achieve Demonhood for many reasons, including eradicating cultists and other infernalists.

Version DifferencesEdit

The Azaneali bloodline of the Baali are extremely similar to the Angellis Ater bloodline of the Lasombra. The "V20" sourcebook opted to merge the two into a single bloodline
