The Melpominee Discipline appeared simultaneously with the Daughters of Cacophony and is intrinsically linked to that bloodline. It allows its possessors to use speech and song for a variety of supernatural effects.

Overview

Named for the Greek Muse of Tragedy, Melpominee is a unique discipline of the Daughters of Cacophony. It explores the power of the voice, shaking the very soul of those nearby and allowing the vampire to perform sonic feats otherwise impossible.

This Discipline can actually be used against deaf individuals, but the effect cannot be encoded into musical mediums of any sort. A vampire cannot have a higher rating in Melpominee than their Performance rating.
