In the early Dark Ages, an order of centuries-old Hermetic mages called House Tremere despaired at their failing Spell of Life. Desperate the discover an alternate means to preserve their immortality, they began capturing and experimenting on the Tzimisce of the Carpathian mountains. The result was the ability to artificially embrace themselves, becoming kindred, and thus immortal once again.

However, becoming undead meant they were no longer able to wield their Hermetic magic. Through exhaustive research and painstaking experimentation, the vampires of the budding Clan Tremere developed a system for bending their cursed vitae to unnatural ends to fuel their sorcerous powers and rituals. Thaumaturgy is virtually unknown to living mages, and it is universally distrusted and reviled by those who have encountered it

Necromancy is a form of blood magic that deals exclusively with the world of the dead: wraiths and the Shadowlands. Just as there are different styles of conventional blood sorcery, there are a variety of Necromancy practices. It is primarily practised by Clan Giovanni and a handful of rare bloodlines. The blood magic style itself could be said to be an evolution and fusion of the Cappadocians' earlier discipline of Mortis.
