He is a childer of Haqim, know as Assamite to the rest of the Kindred. Like his clan, he's seen as a silent knife in the dark from an order of bloodthirsty assassins who participate in the secret wars of the undead by operating as killers for hire.
Outside the purview of the Sects, the Assamites are true independents and mercenaries, hiring out to whoever can pay their blood-price and ungoverned by the will of Prince or Priscus. By the time a mark realizes that he’s being hunted by an Assamite, it’s often far too late. Needless to say, this makes the Assamites both feared and reviled by many of the other Clans.
