: Assamite (Sorcerer Caste)Orientation
: Being of the Sorcerer Caste, Zahira’s powers consist of Thaumaturgy, Auspex, and Quietus. Thaumaturgy encompasses a vast knowledge of sorcery including blood, flame, weather, telekinesis, and elemental sorceries. It also encompasses many various rituals. Auspex is the ability to heighten the senses and delve deeper into the supernatural spectrum. Quietus is the Assamite’s clan discipline. It is the deadly manipulation of blood.Disadvantage
: Assamites were cursed by the Tremere Inner Circle to crave the blood of other vampires. Also, their skin gets darker with time, as opposed to paler. The Sorcerer Caste is less capable of concealing their true identity from other Cainites.Bio
: Haqim was the founder of the Assamite clan in 12,000BC. He was last seen in 121AD. Haqim created Ur-Shulgi who created Al-Ashrad who created Amaravati who created Zahira, making her a seventh generation vampire. In 1493 the Convention of Thorns is signed, signaling the end of the Anarch Revolt and the birth of the Sabbat. During his drunken rejoicing, Amaravati drank too deeply of his 20 yr old lover, Zahira. Seeing her near lifeless form in his arms, he panicked. He tore at the flesh of his skin, releasing a steady stream of his own blood and pressed this firmly to Zahira's mouth. Her cold still lips didn't respond at first but, as the blood flooded her throat, she came alive. She sucked and gulped vigorously at the wrist of her lover. Amaravati finally pulled his arm free of Zahira's grasp only moments before sleep took her.
She woke a vampire.
For three years Zahira trained with Amaravati. They shared the Baali curse of Cainite bloodlust and took pleasure in feeding off each other. In 1496, the Tremere cursed the Assamite clan rendering them unable to drink the blood of vampires. Unable to stand the temptation of each other, Amaravati and Zahira went their separate ways. Zahira continued study under the sixth generation vampire, Lydia Dorn, until her assassination by Amaravati in 1997. He was jealous over her love of Zahira. This was the same year Ur-Shulgi woke from his 18 centuries of torpor and broke Tremere curse. He also took control of Assamite clan. With the curse broken, Amaravati and Zahira were free to be together. They remained inseparable for three more years.
Al-Ashrad was upset by the transfer of power to Ul-Shulgi and defected to Camarilla allegiance as Assamite Antitribu. Amaravati, Al-Ashrad's progeny, was loyal to Ur-shulgi and this angered Al-Ashrad. So Al-Ashrad killed Amaravati. Devastated by the loss of her sire, Zahira vowed vengeance on Al-Ashrad.Pic
