Main article: Masquerade society Vampires in the World of Darkness have a rich, complex, and diverse secret society with a range of ideologies, goals, and backgrounds. Sects largely divide along ideological disputes surrounding the distribution of power among vampires, the role of vampires in the human world, and the ancient myths that allegedly explain the origins and purpose of vampires. Age[ edit ] An important means of social distinction among vampires in this setting is through age. Younger vampires wanting respect and power must prove themselves to their elders. While ambition can provide a degree of upward mobility among immortals, oftentimes respect comes to those who can prove they can survive. Fledglings are still too ignorant and weak to survive on their own though some among the Sabbat manage it and are dependent on their Sires for protection and education.
Lacking competition for certain roles due to the relative absence of other Clans, the clan thus maintained its separation of duties over the millennia rather than becoming specialized to one particular mode of existence. This division of labor allowed the Banu Haqim to succeed on their own where a clan priding itself on its specialization, such as the noble Ventrue or the socialite Toreador , would have failed. They associated rarely with other Cainites, notably lending assistance to the Salubri during the Baali Wars and paying homage to the Brujah city of Carthage. This was, in no small place, attributed to the presence of the Antediluvian himself, who saw the squabbling over territory and mortal herds as reminders of the ill-fated Second City and tried to withdraw himself and his brood as well as he could. Nevertheless, small cabals supported various mortal nations, entangling themselves within the Jyhad , and this enraged their founder so greatly that he left Alamut, occasionally visiting it, but never staying for long, until he disappeared completely.
The first Assamite-affiliated sorcerers were mortal magicians to whom Haqim promised eternal life in exchange for their loyalty and service against a cult of demon-worshipping vampires and, some would say, other opponents both martial and political. Their earliest work, adapting their various arts to call upon the power of vampiric vitae, established the "ground rules" of modern blood magical practices, though many later efforts duplicated this work in different ways. In the words of the Arab philosopher al-Kindi, whom many sorcerers and viziers revere as a spiritual forefather, "we should not be ashamed to acknowledge truth from whatever source it comes to us, even if it is brought to us by former generations and foreign peoples. For him who seeks the truth there is nothing of higher value than truth itself. The twin watchwords of Assamite blood magic, which seem slightly contradictory to many initiates, are discipline and pragmatism. Passages taken from Clanbook: Assamite revised, pages 72 and 73 The following paths of Assamite Sorcery are unique to the Assamite clan: Awakening of the Steel - a path that creates a mystical bond between a blade and its wielder.
