Toreador

The Toreador are called many things - "degenerates," "artistes," "poseurs," and "hedonists" being but a few. But any such mass categorization does the clan a disservice. Depending on the individual and her mood, Toreador are alternately elegant and flamboyant, brilliant and ludicrous, visionary and dissipated. Perhaps the only truism that can be applied to the clan is its members' aesthetic zeal. Whatever a Toreador does, she does with passion. Whatever a Toreador is, she is with passion.

To the Toreador, eternal life is to be savored. Many Toreador were artists, musicians or poets in life; many more have spent frustrating centuries producing laughable attempts at art, music or poetry. Toreador share the Ventrue's love of high society, though not for them the tedium of actually running things - that's what functionaries are for, darling. Toreador know that their place is to captivate and inspire - through their witty speech, graceful deeds, and simple, scintillating existence.

Advantage:
For every level of the Ability: Performance possessed by a Toreador, they receive one level of the Background: Herd for free. In addition, they may access their Herd nightly instead of weekly. Only their highest level of performance may be used to determine their level of free Herd.
Weakness:
Toreadors are lovers of art in all its forms. Whenever a Toreador encounters a piece of art with a performance level of 3 or better, they become entranced and must experience this art for 10 minutes unless they spend a Willpower Trait.
