Parent Requiem Clan: Mekhet

Disciplines: Auspex, Dominate, Celerity, Obtenebration

Weakness: Lasombra cannot cast reflections, even the blurry ones that most Kindred do (see p. 169 of Vampire: The Requiem), and cannot alter this condition with Willpower.
Their affinity with darkness also renders Lasombra less able to resist an instinctive fear of sunlight, anything that burns like sunlight, or anything that could be mistaken for sunlight. As a result, a character suffers a –2 penalty on rolls to resist Rötschreck (fear frenzy) in regard to light.

As creatures of darkness even more sensitive to light than most of the Damned, the Lasombra suffer certain banes of vampiric existence more acutely than do their fellow Kindred. Whenever a Lasombra suffers damage from sunlight or fire, they take an additional point of aggravated damage from that source (see p. 172 for more on sunlight and fire damage). Just as shadow cannot exist without light, so too does light banish shadow.
