The Blood-Dimmed Tide
Childe is a term used to refer to a vampire in relation to their sire, the individual who Embraced them. It can also be used as an insult to suggest that a vampire is inexperienced, foolish or naive. The plural of childe is childer, and a vampire's childe's childe may be referred to as their grandchilde.
A newly-Embraced childe remains under the guidance and dominion of their sire; consequently, the sire may be held accountable for their childe's actions during this time. A vampire's childer are sometimes referred to as its progeny.
