"We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."
--Tyler Durden, Fight Club
Description: Clan Brujah was once built on great thinkers and military minds; now, the clan is built on angry rebels and those who would buck the dominant authority. It doesn't matter what group a Brujah might have come from so long as they are willing to stand up for what they believe in, viciously if need be - and so long as they believe in freedom above all. The Brujah as a whole are more willing to be aggressive, but they don't always have a choice: their clan weakness makes it easier for them to fly into a rage at any given moment. They'd better be angry at something, or else they could spend their nights being angry at nothing at all.
Allegiances: The Brujah as a clan are welcome in all of the major sects of vampires. There are many Brujah in the Camarilla, many in the Sabbat, and many in the Anarchs. The modern Brujah struggle against the power structure of any group; some are trying to change the Camarilla and Sabbat from within, while others are determined to uphold the Anarch way against all who would impose upon it. The elder Brujah still think of themselves as philosopher-warrior kings with superior and enlightened abilities. They have less trouble accepting social and power structures because they have lived with them for so long, and they have seen that not everyone is fit to rule.
Founder: Only a select type of Brujah, called the True Brujah, is allowed into the True Black Hand. This is because the True Black Hand does not accept clans that have come about through the diablerie of an Antediluvian. The first Brujah Antediluvian was male by most accounts, but he was diaberlized by his childe Troile thousands of years ago. The vampires descended from the first Brujah Antediluvian call themselves the True Brujah; after thousands of years of strife, these vampires are so few in number that most Kindred don't even know they exist. Some histories identify Troile as male while others identify the vampire as female; in any case, Troile went on to sire what is now known as the Brujah clan. Most Brujah don't even know that there was another Brujah Antediluvian or that diablerie occured so early in their history.
Weakness: Brujah have a harder time resisting frenzy than other vampires.
Disciplines: Celerity, Potence, Presence
