I hope this short thesis on our own kind has proven useful to you and worthy of your time. I apologize if the writing and vocabulary employed seem unrefined or illogically applied; it will probably take me three-hundred more years to utterly decipher the mystery English language still is to me. Finally, I beg your pardon for lacking more accuracy in some subjects. A distinct... secrecy, may we call it so, disallows me from providing more specific details. Nevertheless, fellow Kindred, I am convict you will learn everything you need to know - the names, the plots, the roles you will play on someone else's schemes - in its due time, unless immortality escapes prematurely from you. Long life to you, vampire... as long as you do not cross my path.
