Level 1 • Sweet Whispers
Roll: Man. + Animal Ken, difficulty 6
With eye contact, the vampire may communicate with an animal, and request favors... if the animal feels like listening. No roll is needed for communication.
Level 2 • The Beckoning
Roll: Cha. + Survival, difficulty 6
By making an animal call, the vampire can summon animals of a particular species who can hear her call. However, she can only call one species at a time. A call can not be retracted.

Level 3 • Song of Serenity
Roll: Man. + Empathy, difficulty 7
Demand: successes = Willpower or more
The vampire may steal the Beast of an animal or mortal, pacifying it. A botch indicates that that target becomes permanently immune to Song of Serenity from that vampire. Someone who has no Beast may not use or regain Willpower, and slowly becomes more and more apathetic and incapable of creative thought, until their Beast is returned.
Level 4 • Sharing of Spirits
Roll: Cha. + Animal Ken, difficulty 8
With eye contact, the vampire may possess an animal, but goes into torpor in so doing. Less than three successes means that willpower points must be spent if an act is against an animal’s instincts.
1 suc. Successful possession of the animal.
2 suc. As above. Also, Auspex can be used.
3 suc. As above. Also, Presence can be used.
4 suc. As above. Also, Dominate can be used.
5 suc. As above. Also, Thaumaturgy can be used.
This occasionally leads to the vampire retaining some instincts of the animal; a roll of Wits + Empathy, difficulty 8, may be required for the vampire to reclaim her mind afterward.
Level 5 • Drawing out the Beast
Roll: Man. + Animal Ken, difficulty 8
The vampire may transfer her Beast to someone else, who will frenzy instead of her.
1 suc. The Beast is transferred to an unintended target.
2 suc. The Beast is transferred, but the vampire is exhausted, and gets no actions the next turn.
3 suc. The Beast is transferred to its intended target.
If the victim leaves while in frenzy, the vampire’s Beast will be left within the victim, and she may have to go to some lengths to regain it. In the meantime, she may not use or regain Willpower, is incapable of frenzy, and slowly becomes more and more apathetic and incapable of creative thought, until she regains her Beast. The victim is affected in the opposite way.
Level 6 • Songs in the Dark (Clanbook:Nosferatu)
Roll: Cha. + Survival, difficulty 8
The vampire may summon... something. Exactly what is summoned is up to the Storyteller, but the thing should be an impressive, monstrous, large beast that is neither known by humans nor recognized by modern taxonomy. If the roll botches, the thing will be quite hostile to the vampire.

The vampire may control, and become one with, all animals in a given range. With one success, the range is a mile. Each additional success doubles the range.----
