"Nothing can be considered more important than the freedom of souls. not just your soul and mine, but the souls of everyone on earth. thus we should consider our trials and tribulations a gift, for such freedom is impossible without overcoming adversity."

Gentle healers or villainous soul-stealers? It depends on who you ask. This tiny bloodline is all that is left of one of the original 13 clans. In addition to supernatural toughness and extra-sensory powers, these Kindred practice a Discipline which may heal wounded bodies and minds; yet it may also tear your soul from your body and leave you to dissipate into oblivion. These vampires were nearly extinguished when the Tremere came into being and hunted them down, one by one. It is said by some that the Salubri hold the keys to Golconda, the blessed state toward which some vampires aspire, wherein the Beast is finally and truly mastered. They can be identified by the bizarre Third Eye which resides in the middle of their foreheads.

This widely hated bloodline has far more enemies than it deserves. Only seven of these Cainites exist at a time, for after a Salubri attains Golconda, she ends her existence and passes her blood to the individual she has chosen to take her place. Few survive for more than a few hundred years, for the Salubri consider vampiric existence to be agony. These vampires can usually pass as humans until someone notices that they possess a third eye. Other clans perceive Salubri as murderers and diabolists of the worst kind. Princes have been known to call a Blood Hunt at the merest suggestion that a Salubri might be in their domain; the Tremere are known to hate them with a fervid intensity.

Nickname: Triclops

Clan Disciplines: Auspex, Fortitude, Obeah

Weakness: Whenever one of the Salubri takes blood from someone who resists, she loses one level of health for every Blood Point taken. This is not so much physical damage as psychosomatic, but it must be healed normally (with blood). To avoid taking damage, the vampire must know the target is not resisting and is at peace. Additionally, all Salubri must continually persevere towards Golconda; straying from this path leads to dire consequences (such as the inability to regain Willpower). When a Salubri finally reaches Golconda, she must immediately set out to find a successor and then end her existence.
