Presence

Presence (Symbol)
Name: Presence
Clan(s): Brujah, Toreador, Ventrue

Presence is a Discipline in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.

It is fairly common among Vampires, especially within the Camarilla, both because of its versatility and because of its subtlety. Many Presence powers can be used upon large groups of people at once and transcend virtually all boundaries of gender, race, religion, class, and supernatural status. Though Presence can be resisted through force of will and by ignoring the user, most do not realize when it is being used upon them.

The following clans and bloodlines have possessed Presence as an in-clan Discipline: Brujah, Toreador, and Ventrue.

Note: Presence is a progressive Discipline like Celerity or Potence. It has no individual powers, just one effect which grows in strength. Higher levels do, however, occasionally open additional options in dialogue.
