This house first appears in the film 'Blade' and is the house that the antagonising vampires belong to. It is ruled by a "Shadowy Council" of 12 purebloods, it also treasures the book of Erebus (a vampire bible). The house takes its name from Erebus, the ancient Greek god of darkness and shadow, possibly the original creator of the vampire race.
The House was composed of 12 Pure Blooded vampires, one of which was defanged and exposed to the sunlight, dying a gruesome painful death at the hands of Deacon Frost. The other 11 and a new twelfth member were all sacrificed to summon the blood god La Magra.
