The Heretics were a group of witch/vampire hybrids, originating from the Gemini Coven.They were originally six Siphoners, a subsection of witches, all of whom were exiled for their inability to perform magic unless it was siphoned by another source, such as a supernatural being or a magical object. They were considered an abomination by the coven and were ultimately exiled sometime between the mid-late 19th century and early 20th century.
