    Clans or bloodlines that feed from the dead

    Hello people. Looking for info on kindred lineages for whom due to particular weaknesses taking blood from the just dead or blood bags might be less troublesome than feeding from the living.
    The Giovanni and Lamiae come immediately come to mind, Salubri might count too, depend on one's attitude toward dealing with variants of their weakness, but wanted to be sure if there might be others and your thoughts on the subject.

    It's kind of relevant to some stuff i'm working on for a little Milwaukee rewrite of mine.

    Cappadocians and harbingers spring to mind since it's really convenient with their interests. They've even got a ritual to refine more blood from the dead.

    Good point, i did consider them too, though their weakness goes a little farther in implications to say the least.

    Those are viable, but i spoke of clan/bloodline weaknesses for a reason - the examples you gave require a lot of the individual baggage to fit in such a situation. I'm looking for something that might apply in more of a group level so to speak and serve as a clue to the attentive that there's more than meets the eye to a certain number of kindred in a city.
