Ok so this is kind of a random late night thought but humor me.

I believe that in order to join the Baali a vampire must be “re-embraced”, eliminating their past clan. This got me thinking about the Embrace for other clans too.

What if, upon Embrace, a neonate was clanless. Then, after completing whatever things the site wanted, they were finalized and only then gained the various supernatural and normal benefits of clan membership? This could also mean that neonates could be traded around (my guy would be a better Ventrue, but you owe me) and that one could embrace...
