Animalism is a Discipline that brings the vampire closer to their animalistic nature. This not only allows them to communicate with and gain dominance over creatures of nature, but gives them influence over the Beast itself.

OverviewEdit

Animalism is particular common among the clans that are most removed from humanity, though many of its powers specifically target the Beasts of mortals and Cainites.

As Disciplines are as much reflections of the Curse of Caine as the traditional banes, extensive use of Animalism often leads to a withering of social skills, as users begin to prefer the simplicity and predictability of animals over the mores of society and the treachery of Kindred and Kine alike.[1]

Some devoted practitioners (usually Elders who have reached adavanced powers) forget that animals are not as sophisticated as humans, treating them as he would humans and expecting them to react like them.[2]
