Genealogy of the Assamites

References
First introduced in the Player's Guide [PG1] [PG2] and in Dark Ages. Described in a clanbook and a revised clanbook.
"Hashashin" in Arabia.
Organisation
The clan is split in three castes : Warriors, Sorcerers and Viziers (scholars), the leaders of the castes form the Du'at. More details here. You can look at Clayton's unofficial numbers of Assamites.
The Master (aka. the Old Man of the Mountain) : Sha'hiri, then Jamal (1493), then Ur-Shulgi (1999)
The Du'at The Hulul is an Assamite antitribu elder, diablerised every 100 years, that has some of Lasombra's blood in his veins. [PGS]
History
One of the tales about the ancient history of the clan can be found here.
When ur-Shulgi took control of the clan in 1999, al-Ashrad didn't agree with his interpretation of the Law of Judgment and left with many followers and joined the Camarilla.
Justicars
The first Assamite justicar will probably be Tegyrius (2001).

Powerful blood
[M]
Haqim <3> (:~ -8000) Progeny of probably En'esh/Enoch, or King and the Queen of Nod. Sire of ? , ur-Shulgi (-2050) and Mancheaka. His embrace is told in various tales. He is said to have embraced himself with the blood of the King and the Queen.[CbR-As] tells he was a great warrior in life, but dedicated himself to scholarship as he grew older, and learned to speak and write the language of the dead. He earned the attention of one of Caine's childer, who Embraced him. He lived in the Second City, though he never settled there. He always remained neutral to the quarrels of his brothers and sister and cousins. His only sister is the one refered to as the mother of the Clan of the Blossom (Arikel) His two brothers were known as the Serpent (Set) and the Sage (Malkav). All the other Antediluvians came to him and pleaded to have him create a "second family" in order to judge and control their rebellious childer. Named "Hunter," then "Judge." "Assam" is a mispronounciation of Haqim. Haqim was not his real name. He last visited the Alamut in 68 BCE. He appeared in Antioch one century later. He was last seen in the British Isles in 121 CE, engaged in philosophical conversations with the Ventrue Mithras. [BoN] [CN-As] [CbR-As] (Founder of the Sect of the Assassins)
[M]
? <4> Progeny of Haqim. Scribe and astronomer accused of heresy and sentenced to death by stoning, who was saved by the Embrace of Haqim during one of his wanderings outside the Second City. First childe of Haqim. [CbR-As]
[M]
ur-Shulgi <4> (:-2050) Progeny of Haqim. Sire of Al-Ashrad (~100). Shepherd of the Assamite clan. Recently awakened from 18 centuries of torpor, and shattered the Tremere Blood curse shortly afterward. Second Childe of Haqim. [CotN,p89] [NoP] [CN-As] [CbR-As] (Akkadian king of the Dynasty III of Ur, 2094-2047)
[-]
Mancheaka <4> (+Second Baali War) Progeny of Haqim. Eldest childe of Haqim at the time of the Second Baali Conflict. Met Final Death in battle. [CbR-As]
[M]
Sha'hiri <4> (+1493) Sire of Thetmes (-25). Master of the Assamites (Old man of the Mountain) before Jamal.He invited Jamal's challenge after the shame of the Convention of Thorns (1493). [LS3,p62] [Cb-As] [CotN] [CbR-As]
[M]
Jamal <4> (+1998) Master of the Assamites (Old man of the Mountain). Slained by ur-Shulgi.Throughout the Holy Wars which were fought over the Holy Land, the name of the hashashiyyin was a name of dread. Of all the hashashiyyin, no name was greater or more terrible than that of Jamal. It is whispered that he has been defeated only once, by the Inconnu Drakulya, and that the previous Master invited his challenge after the shame of the Convention of Thorns (1493), and charged him to guard the rafiq and bring them through the Hijra so that they might avenge themselves for the Curse. Some say that his is of the Unconquered, and some that he walks but two paces behind the Ancestor. All know that he has been challenged but three times and remains the Master. [Cb-As,p64] [CotN,p90] [LS3,p62] [CbR-As]
Ancient blood
[M]
Azif <5> Sire of Fariq (4th century BC). [TbN,p58] [TC3]
[M]
Tegyrius <5> (:-330) Sire unknown. Current Vizier, held the title for three consecutive terms, as well as one in the 14th century. Followed Al-Ashrad into exile to escape Ur-Shulgi. One of the favourites to be appointed the first Assamite Justicar. [CbR-As]
[M]
Thetmes <5> (:-25) Progeny of Sha'hiri. Sire of Elijah Ahmed (7th century) and Fatima Al-Faqadi (1102). Caliph of Alamut.He began as a soldier, fighting for the boy-king Ptolemy against his sister Cleopatra and her Roman minions. When Ptolemy fell, it pleased the barbarian Antonius to have his followers fight each other in the arena; this provided sport for the nervous populace, as well as saving the trouble and expense of mass executions. Thetmes fought for his life, and the Romans were impressed. Antonius took him to Rome, where he was sold and became a gladiator. A few months later his retirement was announced and he returned to Alamut where he is now the caliph and oversees the training of the fida'i. He is a stern master and a word of praise from him is hard earned. All rafiq look up to him and would sacrifice themselves without hesitation upon his command. [Cb-As,p64] [CbR-As]
[M]
Wasim <5> Sire of Karif al-Numair (717). [TC2,p89]
[M]
Al-Ashrad <5> (:~100) Progeny of ur-Shulgi. Sire of Amaravati. Amr (magician) of the clan Assamite.He is regarded askance by many of the rafiq, for magic inspires fear and mistrust in the heart of a warrior. Yet none can deny that he has done great work for the clan since the falling of the Curse. He works constantly to strengthen the Heartblood of the clan and weaken the hold of the Curse upon it. He is responsible for the sorcery weapons that are used to defeat the munafiqun, and it is whispered that he has fought hand to hand with the demons sent by the Tremere to end him. While the rafiq fear Al-Ashrad, they take pride in the fact that he is the greatest magician in the world ~~ for if he were not, would there not be another amr in his place?
His left arm and eye were removed by Haqim as punishment. A diamond replaces the missing eye.
When ur-Shulgi took control of the clan, al-Ashrad didn't agree with his interpretation of the Law of Judgment and left with many followers and joined the Camarilla. [Cb-As,p65] [CotN,p87] [CN-As] [CbR-As]

[M]
Tariq the Silent <5 or 6 now 13> (:1250) Progeny of Bakr. Sire of Gabriel Chavez (729). He is the 4th of the Red List. His generation is lowered to 13 by the Tremere Antitribu. Once, Tariq was as a brother to Jamal, and among the greatest of the rafiq. But he would not submit to the Curse, and went out into the wilderness. He is sometimes seen among the antitribu, but is not one of them, as much as they would wish it. He follows his own vengeance against the clan's enemies, and although Jamal was pressured by the Camarilla into declaring a Blood Hunt against him, only the most troublesome rafiq are given the task of carrying it out; Tariq will not destroy them, for they are of the clan, but their inevitable defeat serves them as a lesson in humility. Meanwhile, Tariq is free to pursue his own ends, and coincidentally provides a scapegoat for the deeds of other rafiq, should one be required.In 2000, Tariq discovers Djuhah's scheme to manipulate him and kills the Seraph.[CbR-As] Was captured by the Tremere antitribu before that bloodline's destruction. The Sabbat suspects he might have been involved somehow. [KmW,pp69-72] [CotN,p15] [CbR-As] (The angel that descended upon Europe during the crusades, destroying all that crossed his path)
