The three playable Vampires in Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong are Galeb, Emem, and Leysha. You will switch between these characters at different story junctions as they unravel the mystery behind the attack on Boston Camarilla.
 As you would expect from an RPG, every character has a set of skills alongside unique vampire abilities called Disciplines. Both skills and disciplines are upgradable, and with that said, here are all the Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong skills.
