Independent Paths of Enlightenment
The independent clans have developed alternate paths of inhuman ‘morality’ over the centuries as a way to forestall the fall to the Beast. Most independents still adhere to Humanity, but many of the older ones, or more, shall we say ‘committed’, choose to convert to a path of enlightenment.
Each independent clan has at least one associated path of enlightenment – with the exception of the Gangrel. They were too recently part of the Camarilla, and have not had the long years to develop their own path. These paths are only taught to the most deserving, or in some cases, those mostly likely to fall to the Beast but still useful to the clan.
