Thought to have originated in the Caribbean, the Samedi have strong ties to the region's voodoo legacies. They practice a unique Discipline that allows them to manipulate the energies of death, albeit in a much more temporal manner than Giovanni Necromancy. Indeed, the Giovanni have very little good to say about the Samedi, and the enmity between these kindred runs deep. Some Kindred believe that the Samedi are the result of a vile Giovanni experiment gone wrong, while other vampires attribute darker origins to the Stiffs. Still other Kindred believe that the Samedi are a derelict offshoot of the Nosferatu – one that should have been stillborn. It is possible, however, that the Samedi are descended from Cappadocian Infitioreswho escaped notice.
Samedi often involve themselves with occult or illegal activities in a city, becoming powerful houngans and mambos or trafficking with superstitious immigrant criminal elements. Given their apparent voodoo roots, the Samedi seem content to garner influence in immigrant ghettos, practicing their dark magic and preying upon a populace used to the dead walking among them. The Samedi are also notorious assassins and mercenaries, and it is for this reason that many Camarilla princes turn a blind eye to them despite their almost Masquerade-threatening involvement with the kinearound them. For the most part, the Samedi keep to themselves, and a prince never knows when she may need an ally with "special" abilities. The Stiffs seem to hold the Nosferatu and Giovanni in some inscrutable esteem (or dread), though, as they are hesitant to take out contracts on Kindred of these clans without just cause or considerable payment.
The Samedi very rarely congregate as a clan, and those chance occurrences where they meet are merely informal gatherings of two or three members who gossip and then go their separate ways. Members of this bloodline are often very solitary in nature, and they do not often seek out companionship. A few turbulent rumors sweep through Kindred society about secret cabals of Samedi gathering in graveyards, but none of these rumors have been substantiated. Those lucky enough to have conversed with a member of this bloodline often recall a certain wisdom and intelligence within them that otherwise would have been overlooked or dismissed outright. While obsessed with death, most of these vampires still seem to possess a wisdom that betrays their short existence. However, there is more to the Samedi bloodline than a loose association of witch-doctors and death cultists. The bloodline is insular and secretive; many times, its members often keep their affairs private from even other members, su...

As originally presented, the Samedi's clan Disciplines were Necromancy, Obfuscate, and Thanatosis. In Revised Edition, Fortitude replaced Necromancy as a clan Discipline, because of the nature of the change to the Discipline; from a straightforward Discipline to paths. However, in the LARP rules, the Samedi clan advantage is the ability to learn Necromancy without a tutor. The Samedi often learn a type of Necromancy called Voudoun. Victorian Age: Vampire used the Samedi's original Disciplines, while the 20th Anniversary Editionused their Revised-era Disciplines. In Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition, Hecata Samedi have the default clan discipline spread of Auspex, Fortitude, and Oblivion. Given that they no longer suffer from the old curse of rotting countenance, Obfuscate should not be especially missed. Still, Auspex may be substituted with Obfuscate at the Storyteller's discretion.VAV: Victorian Age: Vampire Companion, p. 138-139V20: Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition, p. 410-411VTM: Vampire Players Guide Second Edition, p. 132-133VTM: Vampire Storyteller's Companion, p. 12-13
