While all Kindred owe lineage to one of the five clan trees, sometimes the blood twists and warps the branches into something altogether different. These bloodlines shift and focus the Kindred condition toward specific, often familial abnormalities.

Due to a shortage of published bloodlines in Requiem 2e, a fair number of these are ported over from Requiem 1e. Please refer to the Addendum for particulars.
