Lazarus

Title: Progenitor
Cause of Death: Suicide, as the alternative was to consume souls in order to survive, which was morally unacceptable to him.

Mary Magdalene

Title: None; sometimes counted as 'honorary primogen'
Mentor: Lazarus
Apprentices: None
Cause of Death: Suicide (supposedly), for the same reasons as her mentor, though historians have tended to suspect there might have been more to the story than this.

John the Baptist

Title: Primogen
Mentor: Lazarus
Apprentices: Barzakh, Memitim
Cause of Death: Killed by Zacchaeus to preserve the House.
The story goes that after many centuries John eventually despaired of ever finding a cure for the Tremere Affliction, and one day realized that he and his companions had become monsters. Upon confronting Zacchaeus, his friend, confidante and brother-in-spirit, with this revelation, the response was something along the lines of ''I'm sorta fine with that'', if translated to the modern jargon. John then sought to end the entire House in order to put a stop to the depravities and the futile search for a cure, which had only caused endless amounts of further suffering, at which point Zacchaeus was forced to kill him,

Zacchaeus

Title: Primogen; sole survivor of the 'True' Primogen of Lazarus
Mentor: Lazarus
Apprentices: Malach HaMavet, plus two more after murdering John but before going into seclusion.
Cause of Death: None; still alive
After being forced to accept that they had not managed to avoid becoming inhuman monsters despite their efforts to the contrary, and after having to murder the only true friend left to him, Zacchaeus retreated from all active contact with the awakened world. Though often assumed to have perished due to his long periods of silence he is known to be intermittently active, usually showing up to learn if the rest of the Lazarites have made any useful progress yet, and almost invariably terrorizing them for not having done so.

Azrael

Title: Lesser Progenitor; founder of a Lesser House
Mentor: Lazarus
Apprentices: Several, most of them without permission and almost universally killed off by his superiors in the House without being recorded in their roster, as part of the early Lazarite policy of never spreading the Tremere infection, though Azrael was given clemency when he accepted the orders to cease any and all such activities. The only one of his pupils who survived long enough to be notable was trained just before or after Azrael absconded and founded his own House, and is the one who had to keep the fledgling organization alive through its infancy, since Azrael was murdered shortly after founding it.
Cause of Death: Murdered by jealous rivals seeking to usurp his accomplishments.

Raphael

Mentor: Lazarus
Apprentices: One or two, but their names were not recorded as 'apprentices' but as 'victims'
Cause of Death: Killed by the House leaders for daring to poison more innocent people with the Tremere Infliction, especially since he had not sought permission and refused to cease his 'recruitment' once ordered to do so.

Sariel

Mentor: Lazarus
Apprentices: Several, at least three who were notable enough at the time to cause a severe risk of exposing the Liches, though all of them were officially recorded as his 'victims' as opposed to 'students', and quietly murdered.
Cause of Death: Killed by the House leaders for daring to poison more innocent people with the Tremere Infliction, especially since he had not sought permission and refused to cease his 'recruitment' once ordered to do so.

Barzakh

Mentor: John the Baptist

Memitim

Mentor: John the Baptist

Malach HaMavet
