Giovanni

“The worst Monsters are those that are still almost Human…”

History
Augustus Giovanni diablerised the Antediluvian Cappadocius. Nearly all members of the clan are mortal descendants and progeny of Augustus. They can be divided in families. The main families are the Giovanni, the Dunsirn, the Milliners, the Rossellini, the Ghiberti, the Pisanob and the Putanesca. Other smaller families of Clan Giovanni (by marriage) are the St. John, the Rothsteins, the Li Weng, the Koenig, the Hidalgo, and the Beryn. They have specificities; for example, the Ghiberti family made extensive contact with Africa and the Laibon bloodline. Those embraced before the diablerie of Cappadocius are called The Premascines and are five to a dozen.

The diablerie of Cappadocius was prepared by the “Conspiracy of Isaac”, prompted by Augustus Giovanni. The Cappadocians are supposed to have been all destroyed, the last one by the Camarilla. The Lamia bloodline was also destroyed.
The True Vessel is the recipient containing the remainder of Cappadocius’ soul. The Samedi found it but lost it on their way to Venice, claiming the Setites had intercepted them.
