The various branches of the Setite clan employ their own forms of blood magic. In some cases, these forms of blood magic are millennia older than the Thaumaturgy taught by the Tremere. Each version has its own style. All Setite magic, however, has a much stronger religious aspect than the mechanical, intellectual Thaumaturgy of the Tremere. Setite sorcery is blood magic, but each style employs the trappings and mythology of a religion to evoke and shape the magic. The trappings, traditions and beliefs vary between the branches and bloodlines of the clan.
Forms of Setite SorceryEdit
Setite Sorcery is a term usually used in ignorance; Setite spells are closely guarded secrets and few outside the clan know of them in any detail. The term is never used within the clan. Most Kindred who have experience of Setite magic will have encountered Akhu, but in truth Setites practice at least four different forms of heavily religious blood sorcery. They are:
- Akhu: Set's perversion of traditional Egyptian magic, practised by lector-priests of the mainstream clan.
- Nahuallotl: the sacrificial South American blood magic of the Tlacique bloodline, unknown to Western vampires.
- Sadhana: a vampiric version of Hindu sorcery, practised by the Daitya and other Indian vampires.
- Wanga: the sorcery of the heretical Serpents of the Light, based on Haitian Voudon and other Afro-Caribbean folk magic.
