Thanatosis is the exclusive Discipline of the Samedi bloodline that involves manipulating effects of death and decomposition, and is in some ways similar to Necromancy.

OverviewEdit

Thanatosis (from Greek thanatos, 'death', and -osis, 'state of disease'). This Discipline deals with the appearance of Death in all its forms, and the practioners are obsessed with the appearance of death, finding themselves shunned by all but the most twisted of Kindred.
