Cappadocians

References
One of the original clans, introduced in Dark Ages and described in a clanbook. This clan had many offshots, all of them are included here, except Giovanni and Samedi.
History
The Cappadocians exist no more : most of the descendants of Cappadocius have been destroyed by the Giovanni after 1444. They were also known as “Ashurians”. The remains of the Cappadocians form various bloodlines.
The Harbingers of Skulls are probably the Cappadocians that responded to Cappadocius’s call and were entraped (Feast of Folly, two millenia ago). They have recently been freed by The Capuchin are are back, as a Sabbat bloodline. They are described in Guide to the Sabbat and mentionned in Clanbook: Giovanni.
The Infitiores are probably now the Samedi.
The Lamia is another offshot of the Cappadocians, described in Dark Ages Companion. These female vampires were employed as warrior-servitors, the Lamia’s bite was known for its devastatingly infectious qualities. They were wiped out by the Giovanni. Every one of the high priestesses of the Lamia bloodline was known as “Lamia”.

Powerful blood
[M]
Ashur/Cappadocius <3> (:~ 8000+1444) Sire of Caias , Japheth (-7225) , Lameth (~ -6500) , Byzar/Mahatma , Lazarus (1st cent.) and Augustus Giovanni (1005). Ashur, later known as Cappadocius was diablerised by Augustus Giovanni the 12th april 1444. He became a Wraith, yeah. But his plans went all wrong with the Maelstrom of the WW II. He was dragged into the Tempest, to emerge as a mindless Spectre in 1998. [Cb-C] [GC1] [CF] [GC4] [RD] (Assyrian God of War)

Caias <4> (+ ) Progeny of Ashur/Cappadocius. First childe of Cappadocius, killed by Lazarus. [Cb-C]
[M]
Japheth (The Capuchin?) <4> (-7248:-7225+1444) Progeny of Ashur/Cappadocius. Sire of Constancia and Alara. Witnessed the Embrace of Augustus Giovanni at Erciyes; some suspect he was the one to curse the Giovanni (not Lamia). Japheth was diablerised by Claudius Giovanni. At the moment of Cappadocius death, there was apparently a little bit of Cappadocius’ blood left over. Japheth and Constancia kept the blood and sealed it in a jar with beeswax, which is now called the True Vessel. Japheth may be The Capuchin (that is mentionned in Unre’s description in CotN), even if he was diablerised. [GC1,p82] [Cb-C] [Cb-Gi] [GttC] (Son of Noah in the Bible)
[M]
Lazarus <4> (:early 1st cent.) Progeny of Ashur/Cappadocius. Sire of Lamia (who founded the Bloodline). Has been sleeping beneath the sands of Egypt (WoD2), and only recently woke up. Had spent a lot of time with the Setites before he went into torpor. Lazarus may be The Capuchin (that is suggested by Cb-Gi). He might be the same person as Japheth (suggested by Cb-C). He might be the sire of Baron Samedi.He is probably the Cappadocian obsessed with God and revenge against the Giovanni in [CN-Gi], that arises in Egypt, then settles in New Orleans, appears wearing a hood. He is in contact with Ambrogino Giovanni in Venice through wraithly messengers. He kills Chas Giovanni Tello in 1999 when Tello succumbs to Frenzy and tries to attack him, simply waving his hand to turn Tello to dust. [WoD2] [Cb-C] [Cb-Gi] [GttC] [CN-Gi]
[M]
Lameth (Lamech), the Dark Messiah, aka. Dirk McCann <4> (~ 6500) Progeny of Ashur/Cappadocius. This vampire is described in the Red Death Trilogy which has been removed from White Wolf’s cannon.
He was a magician in Atlantis prior to his Embrace. As a vampire he became the most powerful sorceror to exist, and as a result of centuries of effort he devised the Elixir of Lameth, which could artificially induce Golconda in its imbiber. Two doses were all that could be made (due to the rarity, and now extinction, of some of the ingredients). Lameth took one draught for himself and gave another to his lover, Anis.
Able to lie in torpor and use a chosen mortal as his active form, Lameth chose to escape the bonds of his sire by the early Middle Ages.
He manipulated a powerful necromancer, Augustus Giovanni, so that the necromancer would “make himself attractive” to Cappadocius (Asshur) as a new childe. This worked and Augustus eventually did scheme against his new sire as the invisible Lameth hoped. In 1444 Augustus’ ambitions were partially fulfilled and he diablerised Cappadocius to become an Antediluvian himself. Never once then, nor even today, had he suspected that his own power and plans are being used by the now forgotten Lameth.
Lameth is greatly aided in his actions by his ability to work entirely through a mortal (actually, Lameth “is” the mortal, in a sense). Lameth has used many guises, his most recent being an actual Euthanatos mage, the St. Louis detective Dirk McCann. Because of his chosen form, Lameth actually possesses the complete powers of a mage, including complete access to True Magick. He has also literally erased all records and memories of his own existence off the face of the earth, including those beings of might almost equal to his own. Without a doubt, Lameth is truly the most powerful sorceror in existence. [RD] (The Bible)
[M]
Byzar/Mahatma <4> Progeny of Laodice/Cappadocius. Sire of Alexia Theusa (-309). Byzar founds Byzantium around -550 and was sent in torpor by Alexia Theusa in 196. Mahatma is an Inconnu. Monitor of Istanbul. Was a friend of Saulot. It has been revealed that his sire Laodice is Cappadocius. Mahatma and Byzar are probably the same. [CobN] [PG2,p121] [GttC] [CotN]
