Obtenebration is the unique Discipline of the Khaibit bloodline of Kindred. It was developed by the line in the nights when it fulfilled its almost forgotten role as warriors against a greater darkness, and gives them power over darkness itself, controlling shadows and eradicating light.

Update Edit

In Vampire: The Requiem Second Edition, Obtenebration is a set of linked Devotions. They are similar to the previous version of Obtenebration, but place more emphasis on fighting ephemeral beings and the Strix. These Devotions include:

  • Udjat - The ability to see in darkness and spy on ephemeral beings. All Khaibit gain this gift on induction into the bloodline.
  • Tyet (Vigor 2) - The vampire can bleed shadow and cover an area with darkness.
  • Pseshkf (Vigor 2) - The vampire can shape shadows and coat her weapons with them, allowing her to attack beings hidden in Twilight.
  • Ba (Obfuscate 2) - The Khaibit allows herself to be absorbed into shadows and gains immunity to physical damage.
  • Iteru (Celerity 2) - The vampire can step into one shadow and out anywhere it touches
