Death is only the Beginning
Clan M’nere is a tightly knit Mercenary group working for the Invictus and Lancea Sanctum as scouts, skirmishers, border guards, spies, and saboteurs. The M’nere stand out in one regard more than any other in Kindred society and that is their focus on ghouls. Most kindred use ghouls as tools, disposable ones at that. The M’nere carefully select their ghouls, treat them well, and groom them not only for use as soldiers and guards but as potential candidates for the Embrace.
