* TrueArtIsAngsty: In many ways Vampire: the Masquerade (along with TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}) created the DarkerAndEdgier [[TabletopGame/TheWhisperingVault movement]] [[TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}} of today]] and the original Gothic Horror of the 90's. The nihilism of Generation X, depression, punk literature and bleak mindset of the turning of the Millenium is what gave force and shape to this setting. It was so dark and bleak at its peak that CastleFalkenstein and many other tabletop games were created specifically as an escape for roleplayers who didn't want a dark, soulless, brutal game everytime they touched a dice.

* CompleteMonster: [[GenderBender Sascha Vykos]], born Myca Vykos, is a monster whose legacy dates back to 11th Century Constantinople. Sired by the Tzimisce Symeon, Vykos eventually destroyed his sire by repeatedly consuming and regurgitating him before a final act of draining him to death. Changing his gender and taking the name "Sascha," Vykos became a major figure in the monstrous Sabbat, feared even by her monstrous Clan. Vykos [[TortureTechnician invents new tortures]], having perfected them upon countless unwilling victims whose agony she can prolong for years to centuries, alternating it with incredible pleasure to make the victim unsure if it is experiencing torture or rape. In modern times, Vykos plays a major role in the war for the United States East Coast, using her fellow Sabbat as CannonFodder or torture victims when she's bored. One luckless failed assassin is reshaped to her servant, tortured and broken so she may experiment with how loyal she has made him. With a thousand year reign of horror, an insatiable hunger for knowledge and an unspeakable appetite for torture, Vykos is the one who shows the rest of the Sabbat what it truly means to be a monster.

* CompleteMonster: Sascha Vykos probably deserves a special mention here. A centuries old, genderless Tzimisce with a weird kind of god complex, he is described as making all the furniture in his mansion out of LIVING PEOPLE who are being kept alive through the power of Vicissitude, torture-raping people for shits and giggles and throwing them out when they go mad from too many disfigurements and generally being a massive dick (despite not having one). It's telling when most write-ups for his character quite frankly list his demeanor flat out as 'monster'. It's also no surprise that the rest of the Sabbat look to this nutter as a role-model.
