An Assamite is the name attributed to a clan of vampires featured in the role playing games Vampire: The Masquerade by White Wolf Publishing. They are one of the original thirteen vampire clans descended from Caine. Assamites have a longstanding tradition of xenophobia, but have developed a fierce reputation as a cult of highly trained assassins. Assamites do not accept money for their contracts, but rather, they are paid with the blood of other vampires.
