Okay, well since I'm just about to post a new Kindred: The Embraced Fanfic, I thought I would do a fandom intro, for those who haven't seen it or don't remember it too well. It seems I'm all about vampires at the moment :)
Kindred: The Embraced - Fandom Intro
- Ventrue - bankers, lawers, accountants, big bosses
- Nosferatu - look like monsters, keep to the shadows, are the sage like characters or the really dangerous ones
- Brujah - the mob
- Gangrel - street gangs
- Toreador - artists, musicians and everything entertainment
- Assamite - assassins
Julian Luna (Mark Frankel) - Prince of the City
Archon Raine (Patrick Bauchau) - Primogen of the Ventrue ClanArchon is Julian's sire and was once Prince of San Franscico. He is now the primogen of the Ventrue clan and still lives in Julian's house as his advisor.
Archon was a much more ruthless prince than Julian. Julian was once his enforcer and when Julian laid down his guns, Archon knew it was time for a new leadership. He sees the future in Julian and believes he can maintain the peace.
Archon is willing to die for Julian.
Lillie Langtry (Stacy Haiduk) - Primogen of the Toreador Clan
Daedalus (Jeff Kober) - Primogen of the Nosferatu ClanDaedalus is the calm and composed primogen of the Nosferatu clan and Julian's best friend. As with most of his clan, he lives below ground in the tunnels and rooms under the mansion where Julian resides.
He is logical and controlled, but when his underlying Nosferatu nature is aroused he can be very dangerous indeed. He can be a deadly enforcer for Julian.
A very intelligent being, he sometimes curses the heritage of his blood. He is loyal to Julian, but above that he is loyal to the peace between the clans.
Cash (Channon Roe) - Primogen of the Gangrel ClanStreet punk, more fond of his motorcycle than law and order, Cash becomes the primogen of the Gangrel clan and chief of security for Julian.
Loyal to a fault he can sometimes be too volatile.
He falls in love with Sasha, Julian's decendant, who knows nothing of the Kindred, but theirs is to be a star crossed love.
Eddie Fiori (Brian Thompson) - Primogen of the Brujah ClanViscious and brutal, Eddie is the primogen of the Bujah clan. He had a veneer of civility, but underneath he is simply a thug.
He wants everything: power, women, money, and is willing to do just about anything to get it.
Continually trying to get at Julian he will use all means necesary, uncluding traitors inside Julian's house, to see himself the next Prince of the city.
Frank Kohanek (C. Thomas Howell) - Human detectiveFrank is obsessed with bringing down Julian Luna, whom he thinks is a mob boss because of his connection to Eddie Fiori and the docks.
During his investigations he meets Alexandra Serris, Julian's previous girlfriend and falls in love with her. Through her he learns about Kindred.
Because he has made love to Alexandra and tasted her blood, he is no longer prey to Kindred mind tricks (although they do seem to forget this in one ep :)). He is continually after Julian, although when he realises who the real bad guys are, they do come to a kind of truce.
Sasha (Brigid Brannagh) - Julian's descendantSash is Julian's descendant whom he meets when attending the funeral of his last remaining grandchild. Sasha is Julian's great, great grand daughter, but he pretends to be just another relative.
Wild and headstrong she gets arrested in San Franscico and agrees to live with Julian after he bails her out.
She falls in love with Cash without realising anything about Kindred, only to find out in a very brutal and unfortunate way.
Sonny Toussaint (Erik King) - Frank's partner in the policeSonny is Frank's long suffering partner in the police force, forever chasing after him in his mad schemes.
What Frank doesn't know is Sonny is Kindred and he's working with Fiori and Luna.
Caitlin Byrne (Kelly Rutherford) - Reporter and Editor of the TimesCaitlin is trying to do a story on "The Most Powerful Man You've Never Heard Of" - Julian Luna.
He grants her an interview as long as she agrees to answer his questions as well.
Caitlin falls in love with Julian, just as he does with her. She accepts when he offers her the editor's job at her paper after he buys it, but only on the condition that she is given free reign.
When asked if she has to shelve the article on him he tells her it is her call.
Alexandra Serris (Kate Vernon) - Ventrue and lover of Julian and FrankAlexandra is over one hundred years old and she does not like to be told what to do.
She did not expect to fall in love with Frank and it makes her want to feel human again. She wants to run away with Frank, but Julian warns her of the dangers.
When she tells Frank about Kindred, so he has a chance to understand, she condemns herself. A blood hunt is declared and, after making Julian promise to keep Frank safe, she sacrifices herself.
Drained she jumps into the bay just as the sun catches her on fire.
It is unknown if she is alive or dead, in the TV version we last see her falling into the water, on the DVD there is a missing scene where we see her floating at the bottom of the bay and she opens her eyes.
Kindred PowersKindred have certain powers that all the clans share:
- Power to shift into wolves and birds of prey
- Power to make humans forget what they have seen (Toreadors, especially the women, have this skill highly developed).
- Their saliva heals small wounds without trace to hide their feeding
- They can gain in power by drinking another Kindred's blood
- They can completely stop their hearts, which only beat when they are very angry or have just fed.
