About the Ravnos from Mind’s Eye Theatre: Vampire The Masquerade:
The Ravnos clan has a shady reputation, burdened by history and prejudice. Its members are tricksters, thieves, and vagabonds, stealing what they wish and moving on to the next target. Ravnos typically reject systems of authority, ignoring sect boundaries and disobeying laws. In recent nights, a great tragedy struck the Ravnos clan, reducing its numbers to near-extinction. Although it has begun to repopulate after the horrors of the Week of Nightmares, the clan is still small. The majority of its membership consists of newly Embraced individuals, still struggling to understand the vampiric world. The elders of the clan have become more reclusive, frightened of another purge. Like the gurus of ancient days, they share the clan’s wisdom only with those who prove worthy.
Most Ravnos are new Embraces, as the clan has sought to repopulate after the horrors of the Week of Nightmares. Torn between the old ways and the modern ideals of their new childer, the Ravnos are a clan torn by transition and in mourning over a thousand truths that have been lost.
With their unique ability to create illusions, Ravnos specialize in questioning truths and unraveling mysteries. Capricious Ravnos use this ability for profit, seizing opportunities for short-term gain. Other members of the clan lose touch with reality entirely. Those who live to ancient years see this power as a philosophy and use it to achieve a more enlightened state of mind. They study the balance between reality and deception and contemplate the nature of utter truth.
Younger members of the Ravnos clan may be of any nationality or culture, though they tend to be chosen for their skills at survival and trickery. Freedom-loving youth, hipsters, traveling rock band groupies, political activists, Irish travelers, Romani gypsies, or teenage runaways, Ravnos have many new icons of youth and vigor from which to choose. Older Ravnos tend to hail from the Brahman Hindi caste, remembering a time when the Ravnos were more caste-based than they are in the modern era. The two groups often bicker over the clan’s future, as the youthful Ravnos struggle to find their own place in the world. The older Ravnos are wiser, stronger in blood, and more practiced — but the new surge of young vampires brings fresh ideas, technological experience, and a great deal of energy and change. The clan stands on a precipice between respecting the traditional ways and embracing new ones, between ancient truths and too-fast lies. The Ravnos must find balance, or be forever changed.
