Special note should be made that vampires cannot breed, and as a result no further children will be born into Vincent's line that weren't already born prior to joining the ranks of the undead; however, Quintus' descendants still carry on the Lessard's mortal line.

History

The origins of the Lessard line set them apart from many of their kin. Through necromancy and exploration of the macabre, Vincent Lessard discovered the answer to immortality and unlike others of their kind they were not granted the gift of undeath, but rather, they seized it for themselves.

Tainted by their necromantic ways, the Lessard line is far more heavily attuned to matters of death and the grave than many others of their kind. Necromantic style abilities are common among this clan.

In addition to their natural affinity for all things deceased, those of the Lessard line are also gifted with many innate traits that are passed from individual to individual.

Typical Brood Traits

  • Augmented senses: Enhancement of the physical senses. Vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch are typically augmented well beyond the human spectrum.
  • Augmented physique: Enhancement of the physical form. Strength, reflexes and speed are greatly augmented well beyond the human spectrum. Both durable and strong, they're well equipped to take as much as they give.
  • Shapeshifting: The ability to assume alternate forms of one or all of wolf, bat or rat.
  • Regeneration: Enhanced regenerative capabilities permit recovering of most mundane wounds almost instantaneously. More severe wounds can be taxing, and those inflicted by supernatural means are the most difficult to regenerate.
  • Resistances: Due to their undead nature and the lack of a need for a functional circulatory or nervous system, those of the Lessard lines share a strong resistance to cold and electricity.

Uncommon Brood Traits

  • Necromancy: A natural affinity to matters of the dead is inherent in most of the Lessard line. However, active necromantic manifestations are less consistent from individual to individual.
  • Domination and Mental Fortitude: Matters of domination, hypnosis and mental fortitude, while common place, are not consistently inherent.
  • Animal Affinity: The ability to summon animals with which an individual shares affinity to is common place, but not consistently inherent.
  • Clairvoyance: A rare ability that can take on varying manifestations from individual to individual. This ability seems to be an evolution of Sanina's innate seer abilities, and as such has only been known to present in those that are descendant from Sanina Lessard.
  • Spiritual Affinity: Description pending. Evolution of Kaitlynn's abilities.
  • Blood Magic: Description pending. Evolution of Vincent's abilities.

Brood Weaknesses

  • Sunlight: Though those of the Lessard line do not burst into flames or die from sun exposure, it does have negative effects over them. Daylight hours leave their innate vampiric talents subdued and weakened, and extended exposure can be harmful due to it's draining influence. All of the Lessard line are typically nocturnal by nature, and even those that aren't effected as strongly by the daylight hours frequently avoid it due to the harshness on their highly enhanced vision that is more acclimated to the dark.
  • Silver: Though silver will not in itself kill one of the Lessard line, it takes great fortitude to heal injuries inflicted by it. Without assistance, these injuries will frequently heal almost humanly slow.
  • Necromancy: Despite their affinity to necromantic abilities, the Lessard's are themselves undead. This leaves them vulnerable to necromantic magic.
  • Divinity: Perhaps more true than many of their kind, the Lessard's undead nature, paired with their close affinity to necromancy has left them all the more vulnerable to such things. As with silver, injuries inflicted by divine sources will heal almost humanly slow. However, unlike with silver, enough exposure to divine energy can prove fatal.
