Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Wiki

Everybody comes in here's got to have to a shot – house rules: inhibition's the first thing to go. Two more of these, and you'll be telling me your nastiest, dirtiest stories; I am your Beat Priestess and it's time to confess.
―Venus Dare

Venus Dare is a character in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. She is the proprietor of Confession, a popular nightclub in Downtown L.A.


Early life

Venus is of English origin and has the accent to go with it, she came to Los Angeles and settled here, opening Confession, a nightclub which was formerly a church. To do this, she borrowed money from Boris Checkov, the Head of the L.A. Bratva (Russian Mafia). Venus was still paying off the debts by the time she meets the fledgling, and she reveals that when she cannot pay him back, he forces her to have sex with him as an alternative. Her parents live and often contact her via email.

Personality and Traits

Venus is a very friendly and charming woman. Though she reserves her hatred for Boris and his gangs, who she despises with a passion. While she is a very beautiful and passionate woman, she is quite ruthless, ordering the fledgling to kill Boris without hesitation or remorse. As a club owner, she is quite blunt at times, saying that she "refuses to fuck that fat misogynistic old man one more time to hold the club". According to her email, she is very close to her parents.

  • Checking her laptop also reveals an email from someone named Larry, presumably Fat Larry, which implies a sexual relationship between them where BDSM is involved. The wording makes it seem that she is a dominatrix.
