Nagloper    Tzimisce    Animalism, Auspex, Vicissitude

General look; tutorial use of animalism; ability to shape shift into bat

The Sheriff is Prince LaCroix's bodyguard, executioner and law enforcer of the Camarilla. He is the final boss the fledgling must face at the end of Ming Xiao’s route, the anarchs’ route, the Camarilla route, or if the fledgling decides to side with no one. The Sheriff can transform at will into a bat-like creature called the "Chiropteran Marauder". Due to LaCroix claiming he had acquired the Sheriff from Africa, along with his use of Animalism as well as a form of Vicissitude, his clan is rumored to be the Nagloper, a legacy of the Tzimisce hailing from Africa. If the fledgling chooses to side with LaCroix at the end of the game, the Sheriff will aid them against enemies. http://vtmb.wikia.com/wiki/The_Sheriff

Seriously! Is there any other proof that he knows Vicissitude than 'Chiropteran Marauder'? A vampire could have 'Chiropteran Marauder' form also from Abombwe Level 5 and a manbat form is the true form of Bonsam. What about his Fortitude Level 5? After all it's from the game files not from some fan written article?! Other such fan written article says that Ash is skilled in his clan disciplines! http://vtmb.wikia.com/wiki/Ash_Rivers
Ash don't want to be vampire at first place but nevertheless he is skilled vampire for a year of rejecting his nature - makes a lot of sense! :chinscratch:
And for your information both Akunanse and Nagloper originate from Bonsam: https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Bonsam

Yes, this is plain wrong. I have just edited it out of the wiki!

Some time ago, when I was trying to revamp the companion mod, I was thinking to give each ending an exclusive companion. Camarilla ending, Strauss. Anarch ending, Nines. Lone ending, Beckett (or Caine :razz:). Sabbat ending, Andrei. Uei-Gin ending, Minnie Ciao. Prince ending, the sheriff itself. But the second after this shitty idea I realized I had not the slightest idea on how to implement it....

Maybe one day I'll try that route...

...maybe not, beating The Sheriff is too much fun.

Beating the embraced doped-up gorilla is essential

Did anyone noticed his coat's textures looks lile elephant's skin?

That would actually make The Sheriff... evil.

You just don't skin elephants. Not even if you're a badass kindred.

The most impressive characteristic of the fight with the sheriff is his ability to blink around, slashing and rolling around. It would be great if it could be utilized while in protean war form as the PC, giving some meaning to purchase the final form... the present slashing attacks with claws are a bit clumsy and can be interrupted easily.


Elephant skin? I always thought that it was a crocodile.

Well tbh LaCroix is not that well written Prince. Ist hardly typical Camarilla venture Prince. Also its a bit too grotesque. He acts like he was parodied Camarilla's ideas. Prince Panhard from Coteries of New York was deeper Prince for me on example

Straus, Nines, Jack, Janette and much others Bloodlines characters are masterpieces, but LaCroix is very plastic
