When one hears a vampire refer to the existing Kindred
order as the “despised aristocracy of the undead,”
the speaker is probably one of these free-thinking
spirits — those whom the vampire world has
dubbed somewhat misleadingly as one of the “unaligned”
or “unbound.” They are the rebels, outlaws and iconoclasts of vampire society, those who
freely (and often intentionally) flout the so-called rule of the elders among their
kind. Independent Kindred can also simply
be apolitical vampires, those who acknowledge
only their own authority but who don’t necessarily make a grand show of
defiance against Princes and Regents.
