They terrorize, corrupt and defile mortals to test them, and their supposed innocence. Even if conversion is not viable, the covenant believes that by providing aid it can only bring other vampires that much closer to God.
If so, they can lecture them about how their humanity shines through by the grace of god and invite them to hear more at the services on Saturday night. Originally posted by Howalt View Post. The philosophical precepts governing members of the Lancea Sanctum — or at least those members who truly believe in what they do — seem almost mutually exclusive, yet the covenant has managed to hold them together for what might be centuries or even millennia.
