The Treaty of Tyre was a truce called between the Camarilla and clan Assamite in 1496. The Camarilla agreed to call off all hostilities towards the clan and stop contracting Assamite assassins, whereas the Assamites agreed to cease their practice of diablerie against Camarilla members , dismantle the defences of their stronghold Alamut, and no longer work as assassins. The Assamite subsequently submitted to a blood curse imposed by the Tremere to prevent any member of the Assamite clan from committing diablerie.
The Treaty followed ten years of violence and near-open warfare between the Camarilla and the Assamites, begun in 1486 when the Camarilla called a Blood Hunt against them (the first and only time a hunt was called against an entire clan). The conflict would likely have continued indefinitely, probably ending with the death of every Assamite in Europe, had not a lone Nosferatu been found to have somehow breached Alamut’s defences in late 1495. The worrying revelation that their stronghold could be found by Camarilla agents forced the elders of the clan to sue for peace, and they agreed to the Treaty early the next year.
