The Path of Veils is a Path of the Road of Lilith found in Vampire Twentieth Anniversary Edition: The Dark Ages.


Those who follow the Path of Veils revere Lilith as the rebellious mother of monsters, who claimed to be God's equal and who was betrayed by Caine. They reject both Cainite orthodoxy and the Christian principles on which it is based. To them, Lilith is a symbol of liberty, and they will be free when Cainite society is destroyed.

The Path of the Veil may take its name from a passage in Revelations of the Dark Mother, which describes how Caine's childer (represented allegorically as the thirteen Clan Founders) destroyed Lilith's garden and murdered her children. Only [Toreador] and [Nosferatu] refrained from the destruction, and covered the dead children's faces with veils as a sign of respect. Thus, they are exempt from the vengeance of Lilith's followers.
