Vampire Clan Nosferatu are masters of the underground and
spymasters of the undead.
They have mastered life in the sewers to protect themselves from humans and other vampires.
Being spymasters, they're experts in information collection which gives them the right to sell each at a high price.
Nosferatu's embrace warps anyone into a horribly deformed creature. Making them the most visibly cursed of all vampires. Their appearance resembles Max Shreck's Count Orlok.
Absimiliard who was a greatly skilled hunter was The Nosferatu's antediluvian who was embraced in the Shadow of Enoch. He was powerful and vain, attracting one of Cain's second generation childer who persistently preyed on him.
The embrace was quick but it forever messed his vanity by living a scar on his face, hurting his ego and pride... He hated and resented his sire whom he killed when he got the chance, hastening the revolt of the Antediluvians.
Absimiliard only sired a small group of childer during the time of the second city. All of his childer were hunters like himself and everyone stayed loyal to him except for one vampire woman who ran away farther than he could ever pursue.
When Caine Returned, he was judged for the killing of his Sire and partly for the revolt.
Caine cursed him with ,hideousness, a curse that was passed to all his childer including the vampire woman who fled.
Nosferatus are famous spymasters and information dealers to both Camarilla and the Sabbat. Their spy skills are partly supported by their Obfuscate and Animalism disciplines.
They emphasize information exchange as part of their clan's culture, investing a lot of time and effort in teaching their childer riddle games, memorization tricks, and other activities to enhance information gathering, sharing, and hiding.
Members of vampire clan Nosferatu deeply resent vampires of flawless physical beauty specially the members of clan Toreador.
They tend to charge anyone who belongs to this clan higher fees for information.
As for the higher clans, they wickedly enjoy humiliating them - making members of the higher clans crawl through disgusting tunnels just to negotiate with them. Strangely, they emphasize their hideous looks by practicing disgusting physical habits.
They are completely disgusting to look at, have an appearance rating of zero, and their appearance may not increase by experience points. Social actions based on first-impressions automatically fails, except intimidation.
Vampire Bloodline Nosferatu Antitribu supposedly joined the Sabbat not because of their resentment for their elders but because of something more wicked beneath the clan's projected "public" image.
The Vampire Bloodline Guruhi believes that they are the Masters of Africa. The "rightful" ruler of its land. They are even reluctant in sharing their land with the Laibon though it's well known that they have some kind of alliance with the Shango and the Osebo.
