The Black Veil : The Black Veil Version 3 What is the Black Veil? : What is the Black Veil? The Black Veil is not a sacred document or a list of laws. It is a code of ethics first created by Father Sebastiaan Todd in 1999 (or 1998, I’m not sure). It has since then been revised twice by Michelle Belanger. How many versions are there? : How many versions are there? To my knowledge, there are four official versions. The one I will be showing soon is version 3 which was made/revised (whatever) by Michelle Belanger and this version is endorsed by House Kheperu. However, I believe that Houses that adopt the veil are permitted to change certain things. Do all vampires have to follow it? : Do all vampires have to follow it? Absolutely not. The veil is 100% optional. As I said it is not a set of laws, it is only a list of ethics. It’s true many houses and individuals follow it but that’s their choice. If it’s optional, why has it been revised so many times? : If it’s optional, why has it been revised so many times? Well the first version sounds very RPG-ish. Every vampire I have spoken/listened to all want to be taken seriously, this includes myself. It is bad enough we have things like Twilight and books by Anne Rice (I am a big Anne Rice fan though) but we also don’t want people to think we are role playing. So it has been revised so it would sound more “mature”. And now…I present The Black Veil, version 3. : And now…I present The Black Veil, version 3. DISCRETION : DISCRETION Respect yourself and present yourself so that others also respect you. Take care in revealing your nature. Explain what you are, not to shock, but to teach and to inform. Do not flaunt what you are, and know that whether you want them to or not, your actions will reflect upon the rest of the community. Share your nature only with those with the wisdom to understand and accept it, and learn to recognize these people. DIVERSITY : DIVERSITY Among us, there are many different practices and many points of view. No single one of us has all the answers to who and what we are. Respect each person's individual choices and beliefs. Learn about them and share what you know. Our diversity is our strength, and we should not allow misunderstanding to weaken our community. Find the path that is right for you and uphold this freedom for others. CONTROL : CONTROL Do not allow your darkness to consume you. You are more than just your hunger, and you can exercise conscious control. Do not be reckless. Always act with a mind toward safety. Never feed because you think this makes you powerful; feed because this is what you must do. Be true to your nature, but never use it as an excuse to endanger those around you. ELDERS : ELDERS Give respect to those who have earned it. Anyone can claim a title, but a true leader will prove him or herself through dedication, hard work, and great deeds. Even so, leaders should be guides and not dictators. Look to them as examples, but always decide for yourself what you must do. Respect the person, not the position, and understand that your choices are always your own. BEHAVIOR : BEHAVIOR Know that there are repercussions to every action, and that you alone are responsible for your decisions. Educate yourself about risky behaviors, then always act with wisdom and common sense. Do not allow others to abuse you, but also, do not selfishly abuse. Respect the rights of others and treat them as you would be treated. DONORS : DONORS Feeding should occur between consenting adults. Allow donors to make an informed decision before they give of themselves to you. Do not take rapaciously from others, but seek to have an exchange that is pleasant and beneficial for all. Respect the life that you feed upon and do not abuse those who provide for you COMMUNITY : COMMUNITY Reach out to others in your community. Exchange ideas, information, and support. Be hospitable to others, and appreciate hospitality when it is extended to you. Do not engage in illegal activity, for this can endanger us all. Seek to nurture our community and support all those who do the same. Slide 14: I posted this video because I feel people should know about the Black Veil. I chose this version because this is the one that I follow. If anyone would like, I would be more than happy to post the other 3 official versions. Just leave a comment or message me but if you ask I’ll do it. Dark and light blessings to you! : Dark and light blessings to you!
