The Falkenrath bloodline, concentrated more in Stensia than the Markov line, had a famous falconer (now dead) as its progenitor and remains associated with far-reaching activity and predation. Falkenrath vampires are the boldest in walking among humans, taking pleasure in choosing their victims from deep within human communities that consider themselves safe. Falkenrath elders are more likely to master powers of flight than those of other lines.
Among vampires, there has long been the belief that the urge to feed must be balanced by the poise of nobility. The Falkenrath have relinquished all pretense at nobility, losing themselves completely to their all-consuming thirst.
