Vampires from Twilight are all divided into
clans covens, all of them additionally dedicated to their very own model of the Masquerade. Also, the richest, douchiest and strongest clan from Twilight is the Volturi clan, which form of sounds so much like Ventrue, their apparent counterpart from Vampire.
And Vampire‘s affect goes even past simply vampire media, with the creators of Cyberpunk 2077 citing it as a heavy affect for its completely different and undoubtedly non-vampiric lessons.
