Rending (2 point merit) – Gangrel

You practice a secret fighting style developed by Gangrel to combat other vampires. Rending, as it is known, utilizes fangs and claws in ways ordinary fighters would never consider, making use of your supernatural gifts to deplete the your prey’s reserves of blood.Whenever you succeed at making a Physical attack that uses your claws or your fangs, you may choose to rend and tear, causing your target to lose 1 point of Blood in addition to any damage the attack causes. If you achieve an exceptional success, you may cause the target to lose an additional point of Blood as well, for a total of 2 points lost. This Blood loss occurs even if your target took no damage due to use of powers such as Fortitude. If your target is not a vampire, this merit has no effect.
