Turelim revel in the epithet of “Tyrant”– to them, ruling oppressively through force and fear is perfectly natural and they take pride in doing so.
As one of the most dutiful of all the Clans, the Turelim had their territory chosen as the perfect site for constructing the first smokestacks. These huge volcanic furnaces were erected to block out the sun and allowed the Vampires to shield their fledglings from its poisonous effects.
Fledglings, over time, change in their physical appearance as the dark gift overtakes them completely, slowly shedding the vestiges of their Human skin to become distinctively Vampiric. This evolution would one day become monstrous devolution with the corruption in Kain’s soul having been passed on to all his progeny, but for now the effects were more benign. Even fledgling Turelim subconsciously use their latent telekinetic powers to augment their already impressive physiques, making them capable of truly inhuman feats of speed and strength.
Their patriarch Turel, second raised of Kain’s Lieutenants, felt himself to be the most important member of Nosgoth’s ruling Vampire Council following the heretic Raziel’s execution. Little wonder then when Kain vanished, Turel considered himself the rightful heir to the throne. He’d soon find his Council brethren would not be so quick to agree.
Tyrants are only too eager to honour their Lieutenant-patriarch’s orders, particularly if it involves doing battle. After Kain’s disappearance, Turel’s was the loudest voice calling for the execution of the Razielim, and the Tyrants saw it as their sacred duty to carry out this purge.
Turel believed that, as Kain’s natural successor, he had the right to decide how the spoils of the war against the Razielim would be divided. When the other Lieutenants had the temerity to challenge this, Turel considered it an unforgiveable offence. Soon the Tyrants were spearheading attacks against every Clan who dared challenge Turel’s claim to leadership of the Council.
While other Clans called them arrogant, for the Turelim it was innate pride, being especially proud of their role in building this era of Vampire domination. When the true extent of the Human threat became apparent, the Tyrants readily called a truce with the other Clans, including the remnants of the Razielim, and took their renowned place in the vanguard of the Vampire legions.
Now, entirely focused on their ancient enemy, a new generation of Humanity will tremble at the might of Clan Turelim.
