Paths of Enlightenment

WORK IN PROGRESS - Most of the Paths just have the hierarchy of sins only, but its enough right now to provide an idea.
Remember the ST s must approve any path that isn't Humanity. There must be a reason for it in the background, and must suit the character. The player must exhibit a knowledge of any path other than the standard in order to have it approved.

Path of Humanity
This is the standard path everyone starts with. This is the path of mortals, ghouls or newly embraced vampire etc...unless there is a reason otherwise with in the background every one walks this path or once did.
Rating Sins
10 Selfish thoughts
9 Minor selfish acts.
8 Injury to another (accidental or otherwise)
7 Theft
6 Accidental violation (drinking a vessel dry out of starvation)
5 Intentional property damage
4 Impassioned violation (manslaughter, killing a vessel in frenzy)
3 Planned violation (outright murder, savored ex-sanguination)
2 Casual violence (thoughtless killing, feeding pasted satiation)
1 Utter perversion or heinous acts
Path of Blood
Asamites Only. Few know about this path outside clan Assamite, and even fewer follow it. Every follower of this path believes that the children of Caine are nothing but failures fit only to bring the children of Haqim closer to "the one". Haqim ordered all of his blood to seek out and destroy all the children of Caine, and to purify the world from the taint they inflict upon it. However openly announcing their intend would be outright suicide, as the rest of Kindred society would unite against them. Therefore they work as body guards and assassins for other Kindred’s, while claiming the blood of anyone unlucky enough to cross their path.
