Path of Life

Cainites who were Jewish in life may choose to follow Derech Chaim, the Path of Life. They believe that HaShem created vampires along with the rest of the world, and thus the laws of the Torah still apply to them and provide a way of control the Beast.  The Path originated in the Middle East at some point in the first millennium BCE, but whether it was developed by Cainites of the Banu Haqim, Brujah, Cappadocians, Lasombra, Malkavians, or Salubri is lost to history – though the most compelling arguments are made for either the Cappadocians or the Salubri.
