Clans: Followers of Set
Bloodlines: Daitya, Serpents of the Light, Warrior Setites

Serpentis is the trademark Discipline of the Followers of Set clan. It primarily provides shapechanging abilities, though it also encompasses corruption and other characteristics associated with snakes.

OverviewEdit

Serpentis has a near religious significance to the Clan, although Kindred scientists presume a relation to the shape-shifting powers of Protean. The Setites consider it a gift from their dark god and almost never share it with other vampires, although, on occasion it is heard the use of a blood boon has allowed others to achieve this dark gift.

Mastery of Serpentis brings a Setite closer to Set and some advanced users come to disregard their human form, preferring the forms Serpentis can bestow and reacting aggressive to suggestions that they abandon it.[1]

Certain powers allow the Setite to remove either there own hearts or another Cainite, and other organs as well. A Cainite without a heart is immune to staking and diablerie. A Cainite with all of their organs removed grows a scaly shroud that is nearly indestructable, that can only be removed by feeding the vampire their organs. However if someone else gains access to the vampire's organs, they can eat the organ to gain one blood point and anyone who stakes the heart has the same effect as saking the vampire. Any vampire who drinks from the heart needs to only drink through two blood points before they can diablerise the vampire, and rolls difffculty 7 instead of 9 for related Strength rolls.
