This chapter relates how a ghoul named Fra Niccolo Giovanni locates and transcribes a portion of the Book of Nod. It is written as a journal in his own words. There he encounters Lilith , who gives succor to him while teaching him strength and pride. It ends with him obtaining powers from her blood that would later be passed on as Disciplines.
Temptations Edit This relates how Caine was approached by three angels sent by God, each offering Caine redemption and each placing upon him a new curse when he refused.
The curses transform him into a true vampire and impart the weaknesses of their kind. Finally, a fourth angel offers hope in the path to Golconda. But Heaven grows enraged as his descendants multiply and spread to lands beyond where they appoint themselves gods, and in the end Caine departs to watch as the Great Flood wipes the world clean. Transgressions Edit After the flood waters receded and Caine did not return, those vampires that had survived made themselves rulers of the new mortal cities.
Again their numbers grew, and they began to plot and war against one another, culminating in the rebellion of the Third Generation against their sires. Then Caine appeared before them, damning them for their betrayal and laying upon each a curse to fit their nature. Commandments This contains ten commandments supposedly laid down by Caine instructing his descendants on how they are to treat one another and the mortals they live among.
Prophecies Edit Herein are prophecies by unknown seers predicting the destruction of three vampire clans and the events that will precede Gehenna. There is further description of the afflictions that will befall the race of Caine during the End Times, as well as mention of a possibility path to their salvation. Proverbs This contains a short list of proverbs relating to vampire clans and politics.
Epilogue The last section describes the final notes of Fra Niccolo Giovanni.
