Toreador Lore

Post by St Wout »

Lore: Toreador 1
•You know that the primary Toreador Disciplines are Auspex, Celerity, and Presence.
•You know that all Toreador have an affinity for beauty, and that they become enthralled when confronted by certain aesthetic objects.
•You know that Toreador tend to have the most connections to their lives as mortals, and that some are known to keep mortal spouses and families. You also know that this closeness to humanity often leads to elders who have become cynical and overwrought with ennui.
•You know that Toreador often feel it is their Clan's duty to "preserve" the great artists of the era by granting them the Embrace.
•You have heard of the great Toreador festivals of the "Grand Ball" (held every Halloween) the great Toreador festival, the "Carnivale".

Lore: Toreador 2

•You have heard legends of Arikel the sculptor. You hear that she was apparently the twin of Malkav
•You have heard legends of Ishtar the bull dancer, and that she was supposedly innocent of shedding the blood of the Second Generation, and that she fled out of Enoch (called Ubar by some elder Toreador). You know that much of the Legend of Gilgamesh is apparently based upon her exploits in opposition to the Gangrel Antediluvian Ennoia (later rendered as Enkidu), as is the enigmatic culture of Minoan Crete.
•You heard of other tales with other names of the supposed founder of Clan Toreador.
•You know that in larger domains the Toreador gather in groups known as Guilds and how the Guild system essentially functions in Toreador society and how covertly political it can be. You are also aware of the most prominent guilds in your area.
•You know the basic social classifications generally given to Toreador. They are Poseurs, those Embraced for their physical beauty; Artistes, those Embraced for their artistic skill; and Burnouts, those who have become jaded and inhumane..
•You know that the "Carnivale" takes place every twenty-three years, and often under the cover of some other major event (Mardi Gras, New Years, etc...). You know that it is during this festival that the Toreador allegedly select one great artist of the times upon whom to bestow the Embrace.
•You have at least heard, in passing, of Legendary Toreador, such as: Rafael de Corazon, one of the Founders of the Camarilla and the "spiritual father" of the Masquerade; Micheal, Prince Of Constantinople for centuries, Salianna the Vampiric Queen of much of France during the Dark Ages.

Lore: Toreador 3

•You have heard the story of how Arikel supposedly loved Absimilliard (the Nosferatu Antediluvian), and have heard the story that it was the scar on his face that drove him mad with vanity and led him to disfigure himself.
•You know that Toreador embraced Artists have a fairly high burnout rate, and occasionally either commit suicide or go mad.
•You are aware that the Toreador have been credited with embracing such historical figures as: Helen of Troy, who has held a long grudge against the Brujah Menele, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Francois Villon.
•You know of the Ray’een al Fen, the Middle Eastern Toreador, and how their society differs from more common western Toreador.
•You know of the Courts of Love, Toreador domains in France in the Middle Ages who formed a formidable bloc

Lore: Toreador 4

•You have heard bizarre tales that explain much of Greek myth in relation to the Toreador Clan. You have heard for example, that the Minotaur was a Toreador-Embraced wight, and that the myth of Tantalus is really about a feud between a Toreador and a Ventrue posing as Gods.
•You are familiar with the history behind the post-Roman Toreador, and know of the Toreador/Ventrue alliances during the age of Charlemange. You have heard of the Grand Court in France, and of the tragic tale of Alexander and the Rose of Lorraine.
•You've heard of some of the fairly obscure Toreador of note, such as Genevieve Orseau, the current head of the largest Toreador run art school of the modern era, and rumored to be one of the only descendants of the mythical Fae to have survived the Embrace.
•You hear that Arikel was apparently the twin of Malkav, and that the member of the Second Generation who sired her forbade her from ever taking childer. She then disobeyed and apparently helped to start the war against the Second generation to escape punishment.

Lore: Toreador 5

•You have heard that the creature who gave the Embrace to Arikel was not destroyed with the rest of the Second Generation, and that the line between Caine and the Toreador remains unbroken..
•You have heard stories of a Toreador singer who so desperately wished to improve her art that she made a pact with the Fae, and disappeared into one of their barrows back in the Middle Ages to learn from them. You have heard rumors to the effect that this is the true origin of the Daughters of Cacophony.
•You have heard of obscure clan variants or bloodlines such as the Nephilim, now presumed destroyed.
