Sarah Ashwood was born in 1765. Her mother died in childbirth, and she was taken in by the old wise woman in the village, and raised as her own. She grew up learning the lore of the land, herbal medicine, midwifing, and other small charms and spells. Whether they worked or not was up for speculation, but she was raised to believe in the old ways, older than Christianity.
They moved from time to time, because although they were a needed part of the community for their services in medicines and midwifing, they were also feared and suspected of witchcraft. They mostly kept to themselves, though they did go to church on Sundays like good women should. Though whether they believed it when they said their prayers was up for debate. They dealt with the gypsies, always had soup and bread on for those down on their luck, and were generally kind individuals.

I really don't understand the Tremere. Do they just scour the occult groups looking for people with a willingness to blindly follow old and ritualistic ways? I don't know.
