The six major [[Vampire
]] Clans (Brujah, Toreador, Ventrue, Malkavian, Nosferatu, and Gangrel), all sworn to uphold the Masquerade and the status quo in the days before Gehenna. With the awakening of the [[ Antediluvian]] s and the chaos and destruction of Gehenna now two centuries behind us, the leaders of most clans are dead. Within the former [[ Kingdom of Enoch]], the high concentration of Vampires means that clan membership is still somewhat important. Outside Enoch, the clans ofthe Camarilla are all considered part of the [[ Black Hand]] , an organization of vampires dedicated to serving the Antedilivuans and vehemently opposed to the [[ Sabbat]] . However, with Sabbat leader [[ Mordred]] as the only living Antediluvian (Malkav and Tzimisce don't count; one's irredeemably insane even by Vampire standards, and the other is now one of the [[ Soul Eaters]] of [[ Fieras|Fieras VI]] ), the Black Hand are currently leaderless and adrift, breaking back up into clans and subclans as they are driven back into hiding by attacks from Crusader Teams and the Sabbat.
