Nahuallotl is a form of religious blood sorcery practiced by the Tlacique and almost completely unknown to the rest of vampiric society. It is based on offering sacrifices of blood and hearts to the Aztec gods, who must be given daily sacrifices in order to keep the sun alive and prevent the end of the world.

Practitioners of Nahuallotl are called Nahualli.[1]


Nahuallotl follows the system for Thaumaturgy, requiring a Willpower roll for Paths and an Intelligence + Occult roll for rituals. However, because its power is based on religious doctrines, any attempts to use Nahuallotl by a Cainite that does not believe in the Aztec religion results in increased difficulty and a greater chance of botching.[2]

Nahuallotl shares some Paths with other forms of blood magic, though it has distinct names for them:
