A Retainer is a vampire's loyal servant or bodyguard. They are often ghouls, both to ensure their loyalty and to grant them the physical enhancements they need to stand toe-to-toe with the threats their master may face. Whether through vitae, Dominate or a generous salary, a retainer is bound to their master (but does not necessarily obey blindly). Retainers may protect their masters during the day or during torpor, manage household or business affairs, or otherwise act in their master's stead.

In the Storyteller System, Retainer is a Background from one to five dots. Each dot represents a single retainer loyal to the character.
