The "Lost Visage" is the anomaly that reinforces the Masquerade by distorting the appearance of the Kindred in mirrors, reflective surfaces, photographs, and even video over CCTV or film. A vampire's image distorts gradually over the first three nights after her Embrace until it becomes unrecognizable. A Kindred can make her reflection or images momentarily clear, but it requires a degree of mental concentration. In the case of photographs and video, the picture will remain clear for only a moment before it blurs. Vocal recordings of Kindred are not affected by this anomaly.
