    Something that I am a little bit confused about.
    Wouldn't it be the Hecate according to the goddess?

      Nope! They are known as the Hecata.

        in Latin she (it?) was also called Hecata, for what this trivia is worth :P

          I tried googling the name and didn't came up with any results but Hecate, hence the confusion.

            It also isn't the first time the game has been filled with made-up words.

              Uhm... apparently English Wikipedia miss something present in the italian one...
              Here's the first lines of the italian entry for Hecate
              "Ecate (in greco antico: Ἑκάτη, Hekátē) o Hekate o Hekat (in latino: Hecata o Hecate) è un personaggio di origine pre-indoeuropea che fu ripreso nella mitologia greca e romana e trasportato poi nella religione greca e romana."
              which translates roughly in
              "Hecate (ancient Greek: Ἑκάτη, Hekátē) or Hekate or Hekat (Latin: Hecata or Hecate) is a figure of pre-Indo-European origin that was later introduced in the Greek and Roman mythology and then carried to the Greek and Roman religion."

              which isn't necessarily a bad thing, if a parallel civilization proliferates just 2 steps away from the human one, makes sense for them to come up with strange names just a step or two away from the "real world" 's ones...
              (unless when is just a case of questionable translation... at night I still shiver for the names of certain Giovanni's rituals...)

                Bolded part is a very... resolute, let's say... statement. While existance of Hecate-like figure is possible in V-III milleniums BC, we know very little about actual cults and, especially, names from this period.

                  Hecata is also a genus, not that it matters exactly in this case, but I just took it to mean they are calling themselves the Hecata as in they associate themselves with her.

                      You may find SOME mention of them by this name in the V5Camarilla book... For what that's worth.

                        You can't copyright Hecate.

                          Seems a little gimmicky to introduce a clan for each book. I guess the Giovanni/Hecata/Cappidociuns in the Sabbat?

                          But after that? Bloodlines? It gets old quick.

                            I actually am kind of amused at the frothing rage of people who said, "I WOULD *NEVER* BUY A CITY BOOK! HOW DARE YOU PUT MY BELOVED LASOMBRA IN CHICAGO! NOW I HAVE TO BUY A BOOK I DON'T WANT."

                            I'm like....isn't that the point?

                              I always loved city books myself.

                                Chicago by Night also notably is a book where I often mine Kindred. Unless I'm adapting a really small city, there's no reason you can't use most of the NPCs there.
