What do you call a group of vampires who live together?

In my game I have five young adult vampires living in a castle; There is the queen and her mate, with three others who do her bidding. I'm thinking of turning this into a story, but first my question is what do you call a group a vampires who live together? For some reason, my brain has decided to go blank.

    I gooled "a group of vampires who live together" and got this thread! Anyways, I think you have several options, see this post for ideas:

    I'd go for "clan," or maybe "family."

    The Emily Post Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior (no wait, was that Miss Manners, I always got them mixed up) answer would be "cloud." But no one born within the past several hundred years uses that term for bats anymore, let alone vampires. :D

    In True Blood they called it a "nest".

    Apparently living with several other vamps makes them dangerous. More violent and less civil.

    In Christine Feehan's "Dark" series, they have Families, Clans and Tribes, but these are types of societies rather than groups that live togeher in the same house.

    Yes that was what I was having a hard time to remember, nest. Thank you EmmaVane. But since you said they would be more violent, I'll think of a different route, although (and I have mods that allow it) they are doing this quite often when they are out and about.

    ROFL!

    In the Vampire: the Masquerade game published by White Wolf, a group of vampires that hang around together (eg the player characters) is called a coterie. The V: tM game has all kinds of terminology you can ransack for your sims.

    On a more serious note, Wikipedia suggests 'coven', 'house' or 'basement'.

    I always thought it was called a 'coven'.

    Clan then. :wink: Coven, clan... both start with 'c' and end with an 'n'. I was close! LOL

    Or I guess they could be called a Brood. I guess it depends on how they were turned. If they are 'family' then I'd say clan. If they were all turned by one central person and live together then I'd say brood.

    You said a Queen and her attendants, right?

    Why not use the human term: Court? A royal's entourage is usually their "court". Maybe add something vampy to it.

    Court Sanguine/Sanguine Court.

    Blood Court/Bloodcourt/Blood-Court/Blood-Courtiers.

    I like that one, and yes I said queen.
