While he was not originally invited, Tremere was the disciple of the esteemed magician Guorna , and the other Primi allowed him to assemble a House around himself. Tremere wizards garnered a rather violent reputation during these days and chose to settle in the Vis -rich territories of Transylvania. While these lands were rumored to be the territory of vicious Night-folk, Tremere was sure that he could wrest this land under control.
In , Tremere was the last remaining Founder. These magi used the key strengths of his House, Hierarchy, against him by attacking his closest lieutenants, rendering the chain of command useless. Tremere was forced to appeal to House Mercere to negotiate with the attackers.
House Tremere would cease its attempts to dominate the Order of Hermes, and the attacks would subside. Tremere never forgot that slight, but relented, instead traveling from Tremere Covenant to Tremere Covenant to keep check on his House. He assembled a new inner circle around him, and was present in when his apprentice Goratrix consigned a new Chantry within Transylvania that would be its Domus Magnum, Ceoris.
Around , House Tremere first identified the loss of magick in the world and met at a great conclave in Ceoris, four years before the other Houses would recognize the fading of magick. Debates were held about what had caused it, with few results. Tremere issued that House Tremere would proceed as if it was expecting the worst outcome. In silence, Tremere gathered his inner circle and told them to investigate and find a possible way to retaining their magic and their immortality, but that they would not share these with the other Houses.
It was Goratrix , who came to the idea of using the powers of the Night-folk for their gain. He took his apprentices back to his chantry to experiment. After a year, he presented Tremere a potion that would allegedly give them immortality. The ritual, however, did not work as he had presented it: Tremere and his seven followers did become indeed immortal, but as vampires , meaning that they lost their Avatars and the ability to work True Magick.
While there was much lamentation, Tremere quickly chose to make the best of the situation and he and his cursed followers stayed in Ceoris until , slowly mastering their new forms. The rest of the House was kept in the dark about the conversion of their leaders. Others, however, quickly noticed: The Tzimisce.
Seeing the Tremere as usurpers and thieves, the Voivodes rallied against Ceoris, using their fleshcrafted legions to assault their chantries. This caused members of the House within Transylvania to consolidate, leading to counter-attacks from the magi and locking Transylvania into war. In the meantime, the first Tremere vampires argued what to do.
Goratrix claimed that only the swift conversion of the House into their bloodline would give them the muscle against the Tzimisce, while Etrius argued that an unprepared mage would likely only turn against them, and that the Embrace had to be carefully cultivated and only passed to those whose obedience was assured.
Infighting between both factions caused Tremere to step in after an incident in Thessaloniki in He laid out a plan that detailed the future Pyramid , blood bonded his co-conspirators, and told that the conversion of his House would begin gradually. With no intention of giving up his most prized creation, he would drag with him into damnation. The conspirators each gained different tasks. While others would infiltrate the courts of the other Cainites to learn more about them, Tremere and Etrius would find a way to replace their lost magic, resulting in the development of Thaumaturgy.
Goratrix would be responsible for defeating the attacking Tzimisce. In , this lead to the creation of the Gargoyles , created from captured Tzimisce, as well as Nosferatu and Gangrel who, in turn, allied with the Tzimisce to eradicate the Tremere. In time, Tremere learned of the mythologies of the thirteen Clans and the Antediluvians , and planned to diablerize on of these ancients to make his line legitimate.
While initially seeking for the tomb of Set , he later chose Saulot , whose get appeared to be the least threat and who had the reputation to be gentle. In the Anatolian desert, he diablerized Saulot in Falling into torpor only a short time afterwards, Tremere nonetheless managed to give last orders to his disciples, before he fell silent.
In response, the Inner Council of Seven was formed, made up from the original conspirators, who divided the known world among themselves. They would continue their slow conversion of the House, and while some suspected the Tremere of illegal activities, like diabolism , no charges could be brought against them.
