The House of Erebus

The twelve vampire tribes of the House of Erebus
In the movies based on the comic blade there is a group of tribes of vampires, called the house of Erebus. Each tribe I felt showed a different fact of vampires, real or fictional. My first tattoo contains the symbols of Dragonetti, Ashe, Lemure, Kobejitsu and two others which aren't apart of the house. There are 12 tribes but only 11 symbols. Tribe called Faustians are twins and therefore are two tribes instead of just one.
