- For the book of the same title, see Infernalism: The Path of Screams
Where as the other Paths of the Road of Sin are based in something less than human, the followers of the Path of Screams are walking nightmares. They believe to resist the Beast or attempt to placate it is impossible, and so give themselves over to it completely, performing its will. Whereas the followers of Via Crudelitas are scorned and ostracised in general, the followers of Via Quiritare are reviled and feared. No Cainite, save a mad one, wishes to deal with these horrific Kindred.
The travelers of Via Quiritare consider themselves to be Hell incarnate on Earth. As they are Kindred, they are damned, so why fight it? Virtues are nothing more than lies to keep fools in line, and free will is a joke as the Beast ultimately controls all. These beliefs drive all Screamers to destruction and madness eventually, but those who serve their Beasts will usually cause quite a few problems for those who dare cross paths with them.
