The members of this clan are known for their hedonistic tendencies,although that description is a misinterpretation of their true nature.They are indeed proud and regal Kindred, highly excitable and possessed of expensive tastes,but the word"hedonistic" is sometimes a bit extreme.Artists are always misunderstood. The Toreador are known to be the most sopisticated of the clans.They are concerned with beauty in a way a no mortal can fathom.They use the rarefied senses and tastes given to them by the Embrace to become as consumed and impassioned as possible.For the Toreador,nothing matters as much as beauty, though in many cases,the search for beauty becomes a simple search for pleasure,and the Toreador indeed becomes little more than a seeker of pleasures. Like all true artists,Toreadors search for truth beyond an excistence they fear to be meaningless.It is this struggle for truth, and ultimately salvation,that has inspired the clan with what it considers its mission;yo protect the genius of the human race.Toreador are trulyin love with the vigor and passion of mortals and never tire of marveling at mortal creations. The clan as a whole considers itself a clan of conservators; its protectorate consists of the worlds great artists.Toreador specifically seek out those whom they consider the most worthy and Embrace them,thus preserving their genius from ravages of aging and death.Toreador constantly search for new talent and spend a great deal of time deciding who to preserve and who to leave to fate.Among the Toreador are some of the greatest artists who ever lived. The greatest weakness of Toreador is their sensitivity to beauty.They refelexively surround themselves with elegance and luxury so much that they sometimes turn into addicts of pleasure.Some of this lineage become cncerned with nothing but their own continued pleasure-the reputation of the entire clan is sullied by the excesses of these few.
ORGANIZATION The members of this caln meet frequently,though these meetings are more social occasions than councils.In times of great urgency,Toreador become united and ferociously active,but are typically too apathetic to be much of a force.
