Antediluvians

Antediluvians:

The Grand-Childer of Caine


Caine, the creator of all Kindred, is said to have sired 3 Childer, two male and one female, who were named Enoch, Irad and Zillah. Zillah is also portrayed as the wife of Caine in some writings

Caine's Childer later sired progeny and became collectively known as the Antediluvians (the 3rd Generation) and their Childer and Grand-Childer are collectively referred to as the Methuselahs (the 4th and 5th Generations).

There were originally 13 clans with 13 Antediluvians. A listing of which bloodlines are considered Clans and who is a Antediluvian, as that information has changed through the centuries.

Lucian (Lasombra) and Mekhet (Tzimisce) are widely known as Antediluvians [VtM2,p52].

Saulot, Brujah, and Ashur were slain because of the machinations of their Childer, St. Germain (The Red Death/The Seker), Anis (The Queen of Night), and Lamech/Lameth (The Dark Messiah), respectively, three of the most powerful Methuselahs alive.

*=deceased

Notes:Veddartha and Arikel are (in contradiction) written to be the firstborn of the Third Generation. It depends on who you ask and what books you read.

Also note that Toreador legend considers Brujah (as well as Troile) to be female, although this could well be a misconception many of their Elders suffered at Carthage.
