The Great Prank was the feat of replacing Dementation with Dominate nearly clan-wide along the Malkavian clan.


Shortly after the Convention of Thorns ended, six Malkavian methuselahs led a pilgrimage of their clanmates to Domazlice.

There, the six, bolstered by scores of European Malkavians, enacted the ritual that removed the Camarilla Malkavians' discipline of Dementation, replacing it with that of Dominate. Those who had not answered the call to this pilgrimage — primarily the antitribu, and those who made their havens outside of Europe — were entirely unaffected.

It is said that the vampires affected by the prank never noticed the difference. A small fragment of the clan preserved the Dementation discipline, defecting to the Sabbat and becoming antitribu. Many theories try to explain how the methuselahs accomplished this feat, and some even claim that Malkav himself sensed the six's efforts and willed the change to take effect.

The effects of this ritual endured until the modern nights, when Dementation was finally returned to all Malkavians in what was called "The Reawakening" of 1997.
