The Harbingers of Ashur are a bloodline of Clan Hecata, comprising of Cappadocian remnants and the Harbingers of Skulls who came together at the Family Reunion, taking the name of the Ashur, long believed to have been Cappadocius himself.

No longer truly one or the other, they represent a synthesis of what they both were before and have been in the centuries since the Giovanni usurped the Clan of Death, and hunted them to near extinction. Still, some who continue to style themselves strictly as Cappadocians have begun to find themselves chafing at these new ties, entertaining the possibility of defecting to the Camarilla outright now that they are no longer inherent fugitives.
