David Witz was a Tremere researcher that specialized on cloning technology.
Witz sought for a method of immortality without the burdens of vampirism. Using computers to map key points of individual personalities and combining this research with biothamaturgy, Witz has created “clones,” alchemical homunculi programmed with simulations of individuality. By using the discipline of Dominate, he can even give these clones limited memory of the individual they are to replace. Witz has faced criticism that his researchs are affronts against the Montmartre Pact, which outlawed the use of similar creatures known as Simulacra that were byproducts of Virstania's research.
