Zillah, the Beautiful, was a Second Generation vampire. She was the third childe Embraced by Caine, and his first wife.[8][9]


Zillah captivated Caine's heart and knew of it. Yet somehow, she was able to resist him, to the point that Caine sought the Crone's magick to make Zillah love him. The Crone made Caine's blood potent through the powers of Blood bonding. Thus, Caine secretly gave his blood to Zillah, so that she would be bound to him.[10]

According to the Nosferatu, Zillah sired their Antediluvian who was a powerful hunter. He was a hunter with such prowess, that he sought to hunt the most powerful creatures in the world. When he confronts Zillah, he is gravely defeated. However, due to his bravery, she felt compelled to embrace him.[11] This Antediluvian possesses the Discipline: Obfuscate, a powerful hunting skill commonly used by the Nosferatu, Followers of Set, and Assamite Clans. Therefore, she is thought to be the sire of all these Antediluvian childer who possess Obfuscate: Absimiliard, Set, and Haqim, the "Hunter Lineage".

Zillah is also suspected to have had the "Gift of Prophecy", just as Saulot had, which may have stemmed from Auspex.[12] In the First City, she even had a small pool named after her, the Pool of Zillah, filled with crystal clear water that was said to provide visions of the future to those who knew how to see them.[13]

The first signs of a society occurred in Sumer[1] c. 10,000 BC. Since Zillah was Second Generation living in the time of Enoch, she could have easily been embraced 12,000 years ago.
