These families might also be considered clans
- This old vampire family might consider themselves a 'clan'. Atilla and Krone were members of the Vampire High Council.
- Another old vampire family with a long and important history. They are closely connected with the Vampire High Council, suggesting they have a lot of influence.
- The Vaccaria family are not known to directly possess much power or influence, although, since one of it's two known members was a shapeshifter, it's entirely likely that they may have had much more influence than what it seems.
