Name: Quietus
Pronunciation: kwi-EET-us
Clans: Assamite

Quietus is the signature Discipline of the Assamites that grants them influence over the blood of others.

OverviewEdit

Though each of the Assamite castes possesses Quietus as an in-clan Discipline, it is primarily known for being an assassin's tool in the hands of the Warrior caste, and the lower level powers are largely geared towards that end. Developed by the Assamite Antediluvian, Haqim, in ages past, its use by his descendants is associated with passing judgment on Cainites and protecting mortals from their depredations.

One strange side effect of such power over blood, however, is that it seems to leave bloodlines with an affinity for Quietus vulnerable to blood curses. Also, blood disease spread quicker among users of Quietus[1]. Advanced users are known to develop blood fetishisms thanks to the focus of the Discipline on blood[2].
