Sire is a term used to describe a vampire who has created another vampire (a childe).
- sire: 1. a term for the father (or genetic species providing sperm) of a creature, contrasting to the female term, dam. 2. a form of address and title for a man of rank or authority, equivalent to Lord or Prince.
In both Vampire: The Masquerade and Vampire: The Requiem, a sire is a vampire that has Embraced a childe. The term is unisex, applying to both male and female vampires (thus a female vampire is not a dam, but is also a sire). Alternatively, the term may apply to the act of the Embrace itself, i.e. one may be said to have sired a childe. Similarly, one's sire's sire is one's grandsire, although that particular distinction may not be particularly relevant. Typically, a fledgling's sire is held accountable for the new childe's actions until such a time that the childe is capable of striking out on their own.
Vampire: The MasqueradeEdit
- Sire: A vampire who has Embraced childe(r) and monitors their progress; Often seen as the "Parent" of a childe.
