- The Laibon are a little-known Bloodline of Vampires
hailing from Africa. They do not subscribe to the
Cainite myth, beliveing themselves to have an
altogether different origin. They are very much in
touch with their Primal sides, mastering Animalism,
Fortitude and a nuique Discipline called Ambombwe
which deals with tapping the spiritual power of the
Beast in ways that exceed even Animalism. Virtually
unknown in modern times (they keep an extremely low
profile; most encounters with them appear to simply
confuse those who've observed them into thinking that
they are some strangely-powered Gangrel or other
types), they were much-respected in the Dark Ages as
shamans, philospers and storytellers.
