The Sabretooth Clan is the world’s largest and one of the best known Family of individuals drawn to the vampire lifestyle with its own culture, traditions and history. Founded by fangsmith, author, and impresario Father Sebastiaan in the summer of 1995 as a society for his fang clients. The collection of minds of individuals drawn to this lifestyle quickly evolved into a its own distinct culture which have greatly influenced and inspired Vampyre / vampire community worldwide. All had a free forum to evolve into a common Current. Sabretooths, members of the Sabretooth Clan, are individuals who share the common experience of having had fangs made for them by the founding Father Sebastiaan, which is known as the Rites of Transformation. This rite of passage is about more than just being fitted with a custom pair of fangs; incorporated are mysterious elements including the “Oath“, the “Mirror”, the “Oracle”, the “Naming” and the "Ankh." Sabretooths hail from many diverse backgrounds, including practicing the vampire lifestyle in many formats, vampire scholars and Black Swans who are educated on Vampyre culture but yet to fully identify as one. Those who truly embrace this transformative milestone are united in a unique tribal and Family spirit. Sabretooths are collectively known as the Sabretooth Clan. The first Sabretooth was Lady N, who had her fangs made on Christmas Day 1994. She is actually Father Sebastiaan’s birth mother and became the first and only “Brood” of that year. Brood is a term referring to the year a Sabretooth went through the Rites of Transformation. Since that first year, each subsequent year’s Brood have gone through the ever-evolving Transformation Rite while getting their fangs made in places such as the FangShop in NYC, European music festivals, the Paris Catacombs, in the House of Blues courtyard in New Orleans, and many other cities around the world. Each new individual going through the Rites of Transformation brings a new and interestingly unique perspective into the Sabretooth Clan. Who knows how Sabretooths will change and evolve in the future? Keep watching…..
