Ghouls are, according to the definition of the books, people with whom you have shared your vitae at least three times. The reality is a little different. Non-Kindred beings (a very loose definition) who ingest vitae become ghouls immediately after taking the first drink. For each drink they have, up to the maximum of three, their behaviour patterns will show slight signs of change, generally making them more favourable toward you until, sometimes despite themselves, they eventually love the Kindred. This process, as with most things Kindred do, takes time, and it should also be remembered that the treatment of Regnant (Kindred) of their Thrall (Ghoul) can have a dramatic impact on this process.

Example #1:
Alyssa finally notices someone that she decides would make an excellent addition to her permanent staff, so she begins to feed them her vitae. Over the course of time, she spends a lot of time with that person, getting to know them, understanding their motivations, and learning much about them. This makes the ghoul decide that things aren't so bad after all.

Example #2:
Sonja sees a person that would be useful to her, so she tricks them into consuming her vitae (damned dirty Tremere!). Over the course of time, she continues in the same manner, but spends very little time with the ghoul and, any time she does actually spend, is making the ghoul perform services for her. The ghoul resents this behaviour but can't actually resist due to having their will crushed by the bond.

You should always remember Hollow Bridge's motto. "The City Where Choice Meets Consequence". Treat your ghouls nicely, and they will love you. Treat them like slaves with no life of their own, save what you give them to do, and they may rebel. Ghouls are people too at the end of the day.

Also, as a final note, every ghoul has two dots in disciplines. The first, whether I agree with it or not, is Potence (if you'd like to know my personal opinion please send me a PM). The second is a discipline that is common to the clan that their Regnant/Domitor is from, and that they know, but in the case of Caitiff, it is just whatever discipline they inherit. If, upon creating a ghoul, you have a specific request that they have a particular discipline, please communicate this via your Storyteller Discussion thread. The ST's will look this over and make a decision.
