the Strong


check "Trivia" section


c. 10,000 BC [1]

Final Death:

possibly c. 2400 BC [2]




Caine [3]



Irad, "The Strong", was a Second Generation vampire who was the second childe to be Embraced by Caine.


Caine Embraced Irad at the insistence of Enoch, who desired Kindred brethren.[4]

Irad's strength served as Caine's arm,[5] who would have childer possessing leadership and dominance. The Disciplines of Dominate, Presence, Potence and Fortitude are common among the Ventrue (VTM), Brujah, Cappadocian, and Lasombra Clans.

Thus, the aptitude of leadership would be passed to the childer thought to be: Ventrue, Brujah, Cappadocius, Lasombra. These would serve well to be the "Philosopher-Kingship Lineage".

Possible Childer Edit

  • In The Legend of Irad, at some point in the First City of Enoch, Irad "The Strong" sought to purge himself of all evil. Using his mastery of Protean, the Ancient gathered all of his evil into a bilious mass of repugnancy and horror, and spat it out. Thus, the world was given the Tzimisce Antediluvian.[citation needed]
  • The Ravnos have conflicting stories as to their origins. Some claim that Ravnos the Antediluvian was a childe of Irad. Others profess that he was a direct childe of Caine himself. There is some indication that Ennoia, the progenator of Gangrel, was Ravnos' sister. Thus, some Ravnos will say that she was also sired by Irad. - Clanbook: Ravnos Revised


  • Irad might be the biological son of Enoch from a "book of Genesis" reference.

The first signs of a society occured in Sumer[1] c. 10,000 BC. Since Irad was Second Generation living in the time of Enoch, he could have easily been embraced 12,000 years ago.
