Sargon Fragment

The Sargon Fragment, from the VTES Final Nights card set

The Sargon Fragment is a book or scroll believed to be written by Cappadocius during his mortal years. Some scholars believe it contains a ritual called "The Anointing" that grant god-like powers.

Overview

Cappadocius, among the greatest mages of his time, wrote down all his knowledge before his Embrace, some 8000 years ago. The violence of his embrace ruined his memory and he could not find where he had hidden the document. Both he and his childer would spend thousands of years looking for the missing work.

At some point all or a portion of the work was copied to a new artifact called the Sargon Codex. However, this Codex was shattered during the Middle Ages after Lazarus' schemes had been discovered by Constancia. The remaining parts of the Codex were scattered, among them the most famous being the Sargon Fragment that contained the Anointing. The Fragment is written in ancient Chaldean and therefore incomprehensible to most Cainites.[1] The Fragment was transcribed at an unknown point in history to paper.

By the 1600s the Sargon Fragment had been placed in the Vatican by the Founders of the Camarilla to safeguard it. In 1666 the manuscript was somehow stolen.[2] Shortly thereafter the Fragment was recovered by Lazarus (as the Capuchin), but was destroyed during the Great Fire of London. Ambrogino Giovanni later started looking for it in the Shadowlands.

References

  1. The Sargon Fragment is written in "ancient Chaldean". Chaldean was the language of the Chaldean Empire, founded in 626 BCE. Even if ancient Chaldean somehow existed for a thousand years before then, the Fragment would still have been made 6000 years after Cappadocius' Embrace. This means it cannot be the original
  2. Recovering the Sargon Fragment is the central plot of Giovanni Chronicles II: Blood & Fire
