>>63043705>New player in Vampire the Masquerade. Is it true that you have to be the same clan as the vampire who turned you?
Ordinarily, yes. Vampires tend to "inherit" their Sire's clan. There are some exceptions, however.
Tthere are some that become Caitiff (especially Thinbloods of 14th Generation and upwards) immediately following the Embrace. For whatever reason, they never manifest the traditional Clan/Bloodline curse, nor do they necessarily have an instinctive grasp on their Sire's Clan Disciplines. Many vampires view Caitiff as weaklings, and as such, many Caitiff are killed when their Sires learn the truth of their condition.
Some are born into their parent clan, but end up creating entirely new bloodlines. It's super rare, but it can happen.
There are also some thaumaturgical rituals that either sever the clan bond or straight up switch it from one clan/bloodline to another.
