The Toreador

The Toreador are a clan of artists, poets and innovators. Clan Toreador revels in all that is beautiful, being paintings, music or anything they deem artistic and unique. Needless to say the Toreador thrived in the renaissance for all its break breakthroughs. Now the curse of Cain is particularly different in clan Toreador than the rest of the clans, for there is a legend concerning the clan founder Arikel that says: It is said that the Clan's founder, Arikel was a mortal painter in the First City. Famed throughout the lands for her work, after her Embrace she painted a mural on which the past, present and future of Kindred society was depicted. When Cain saw a terrible future for his race, he cursed her with these words: "As you have distracted me from important matters, so shall your attention ever be consumed by that which you deem beautiful." And now the Toreador fall entranced by something remarkably interesting or beautiful, They are often overcome by the beauty they see around them, and become immobilized with fascination. Such things as paintings, neon signs, or even sunrises can captivate them. But beware if a Toreador is captivated by a sunrise for one kiss of daylight means final death to all kindred. The clans disciplines are shared with many other clans which include Celerity which gives them supernatural speed, Auspex lets the vampire see the auras of her surroundings as well as to heighten  her senses of perception and sight and Presence that serve the Toreador to enthrall her victims or to submit them to ones charm.


In the modern nights, we still find many poets and painters as well as fashion designers and a musicians, if a trend is taken up in a city, most likely is the trend that a Toreador started. The recent innovations of cinema, television and the internet means that new forms of art and expression are being discovered almost daily, meaning the Toreador have become even more varied. One thing that a Toreador loves is an event called Elysium, in the Elysium there is a truce held up by all clans and differences are put aside for that night, so the Toreador can feel free to showcase his latest art piece and where they can poison ones ear with half truths to change perspectives in their favor, the Toreador are the closest to humans for where you can find an elder Tzimisce still wearing his battle gear from the 1800 you are more likely to see an elder Toreador wearing something from this year's Paris catwalks.

  1. The Toreador clan is a rare one indeed, the only Toreador that comes to mind is Armand from interview with the vampire, other than him i find no other Toreador vampire in pop culture, still Toreador is my least favorite clan they dont have a unique discipline, and most of them are shared with other clans so they dont seem to be quite special, to me at least, but if one is into the Arts a Toreador may be looking for you.
