The Gangrel are wanderers, rarely remaining in one place for any significant period of time.In this they are very diffrent from most Kindred, who usually find a haven and jealously guarg it.There is no record of who is the eldest in the Gangrel line is, and the clan has no established leaders.On the whole, Gangrel seem unconcerned with such things.They are known for being withdrawn, quiet and solemn. They certainly keep their cards close to their chests. Clan Gangrel consists of survivors, vampires who are capable of making it on their own. They do not despise civilization or the society of their Kindred.They simply do not require it.They are known for their lack of concern about crossing lands of werewolves;indeed,it is said they have friends among them. Gangrel always pick their progeny-to-be very carefully, seeking survivors who are capable of excisting on their own.Once they Embrace these mortals, they abandon them, leaving their victims to make their own way through the world.Though they may watch their progeny from a distance, sires rarely interfere.When they feel childer are ready, Gangrel sires present themselves and teach the childer the true ways of the line. The Gangrel are very capable shapeshifters,which may explain their ability to cross wild areas unmolested. There are no reports of them being able to transform into anything other than wolves or bats,but there are tales of some Gangrel elders being able to acheive mist form.Perhaps because of this shapechanging power, Gangrel often have features distinctly resembling those of animals. If stories are to be believed,the Gypsies may be mortal descendents of the mysterious Antediluvian who stands at the head of the Gangrel line.They are under his protection, and any Kindred who harms a Gypsie will answer to him(or Her).Regardless of whether this is tru or not Kindred are loathe to harm Gypsies. Members of the Gangre are expected, through long standing clan tradition, to aid Gypsies whenever necessary.In turn, Gangrel have also been known to receive aid from Gypsies. Certain members of Clan Gangrel have adopted much from Gypsy culture,including mannerisms,linguistics elements and even dress.
ORGANIZATION The Gangrel do not really consider themselves a clan, at least in the sense that other clans do. They never have clan meetings and rarely attend Camarilla councils. Nonethless,they do tend to enjoy one anothers company,at least more than other vampires, and they can often be found together.
STEREOTYPES BRUJAH Their virtue is pure,but their vision is clouded with hate and pride. MALKAVIAN They are reservoirs of immense power,but they do not know how much to tap their potential. NOSFERATU Kindred of strong spirit; we share so much in common with them. TOREADOR We hold them in contempt because they have earned nothing better.They must learn to serve instead of take. TREMERE Though they do not realizeit,they are our enemies.They follow the path of greed and seek to destroy us all. VENTRUE Every sect must have leaders; each leader must serve the sect.These leaders are neither better nor worse than most.
