Laws of Progeny

Laws of Progeny refer to the creation of any vampire to serve under the ruling house.  Registered members of a house have the right to sire at will as long as permission is granted to doing so.  There are eight parts to the Laws of Progeny: Definition, Creation & Destruction, Blood Bonds, Bond Calls, Blood Desire, Release, Protegos, and Sireal Death.


1 ~~~ Definition

  • This law covers only the creation of vampires under a registered House.
  • This law extends to sub-houses that are part of a registered House.
  • This law is in effect for all Houses that retain a council seat in the Order of the Talamasca.
  • All Earthen covens are bound by these laws.
  • Earthen covens are still bound by these laws even if they travel to other worlds.
  • Sosarian covens are not bound by these laws, but they can be subject to persecution if they travel to Earth.
  • If a Sosarian coven registers as a sub-house under a main house, it adopts all its rules.

2 ~~~ Creation and Destruction

  • A mortal created as a vampire becomes the property of its creator.
  • The sire is responsible for all the progeny’s education and acclimation to the life.
  • The sire is responsible for all the progeny’s actions and submits to equal consequences to such by the Order.
  • No mortal under the age of 18 is allowed to be created.  A progeny must be able to be self-sustaining.
  • Permission of the dominant sire of the bloodline must be acquired by all subservients in order to sire.
  • If permission is not acquired, the dominant sire has the Right of Destruction.
  • A sire not only has the right to destroy their progeny, but also a duty to do so if they become unstable and disloyal to the House.
  • Only the sire can destroy its progeny.
  • If the sire is not living, or incarcerated, the grandsire may evoke the sireal Right of Destruction.
  • Sire-siblings are forbidden from destroying one another except with the expressed permission of their sires or grandsires.
  • In the absence of a grandsire, the House Regent takes on the Right of Destruction.

3 ~~~ Blood Bonds

  • There is biochemistry that occurs at creation and lasts throughout the duration of your unlife, called the Blood Bond.
  • This Blood Bond can diminish with time and often can be severed completely in certain circumstances.
  • Every progeny created is immediately bound to their sire in this way.
  • Progeny will feel what their sires feel, and vice versa, and be acutely aware of their heightened states of emotions.
  • Blood Bonds alert the sire of the progeny’s state of being — if they are hurt, scared, in danger, etc.
  • Blood Bonds allow for the telepathic communication between sire and progeny that spans great distances.
    • It cannot however transcend between worlds, usually.
    • Older vampires often have a far greater reach with their Blood Bonds than younger ones.
    • An elder vampire for example would be able to use the Blood Bond in Trammel for example when their progeny is in Malas.
    • An ancient vampire (those over 5,000 years old) for example would be able to use the Blood Bond on Earth when their progeny is in their immediate solar system, say Saturn.

4 ~~~ Bond Calls

  • A sire’s ability to call upon their aid of their progeny is called the Bond Call.
  • A Bond Call can only be used by the sire to those that are bound to him/her.
    • It cannot however transcend between worlds, usually.
    • Older vampires often have a far greater reach with their Bond Calls than younger ones.
  • Bond Calls fall on deaf ears if there is no progeny available in the immediate distance covered by the sire’s age.
  • Progeny would have no other recourse than to answer that Bond Call, immediately.
    • They often cannot focus on anything else but getting to their sires.
    • They will stop whatever they are doing to answer the Bond Call.
  • A Bond Call is almost impossible to ignore, if its within distance. Resisting it would be very very difficult, but not impossible.

5 ~~~ Blood Desire

  • Vampires are overtly sexual creatures.
    • Sex is a method of strengthening one’s connection to another.
    • Whereas, for mortals sex is a means to procreate… for vampires sex is a means of security.
    • Vampires are bi-sexual, although their retain the choice to not give into those tendencies.
    • Ancient vampires have been known to become a-sexual. Having little need for sex because they are secure within themselves.
  • Vampires that are bound to each other often feel the need for sex with each other that defies attraction or even familial bonds; this is called the Blood Desire.
  • Progeny when first created would have a very strong Blood Desire to their sires.
  • The Blood Desire typically lasts anywhere from ~20 to ~100 years.
  • The Blood Desire is stronger between bound sires and progeny.
  • The Blood Desire can be resisted by both sire and progeny through sheer will.
  • The Blood Desire often completely disappears with a releasement or after a century or so.
  • The Blood Desire is necessary to establish a deeper connection between sire and progeny.

6 ~~~ Release

  • A sire has the right to release a progeny from the Blood Bond, which also severs the Bond Call and Blood Desire.
  • A releasement does not change the biochemistry that occurs between sire and progeny, it is a conscious decision that the sire makes not to submit to it.
  • A sire that does not submit to the Blood Bonds, Bond Calls, or Blood Desires diminishes the time the progeny would feel a need for such mechanisms.
    • The progeny would feel very lost without being prepared for the release.
    • Part of the sire’s responsibility is to educate the progeny enough to prepare them to be self-sustaining.
    • Consensual releasement makes it very easy to get over the biochemical effects.
    • Non-consensual releasement can send the progeny into a deep depression, often committing suicide or going rogue.

7 ~~~ Protegos

  • A progeny that has been released or whose sire has met their demise may rebond to another elder vampire that is not their maker, that vampire then becomes a Protego, which means “protector”.
  • The Blood Bonds, Bond Calls, and Blood Desires all would exist between protego and progeny much in the same way that it would with the original creating sire.
  • The Right of Creation and the Right of Destruction however, still falls to the original sire, or in their death, to the grandsire.
  • A vampire can become a protego without the blood exchange through marriage.  If they marry a sire, they become “secondary sires” to their spouse’s progeny.

8 ~~~ Sireal Death

  • A sire that meets the true death immediately releases all progeny bound to him/her.
  • Responsibility of progeny left sireless then falls to:
    • firstly, the sire’s immediate and legal spouse, as protego.
    • secondly, the sire’s own sire, as the grandsire.
    • thirdly, the House leader.
