Covenants are vampire organizations formed mostly to help members make some kind of sense of their condition. As such, they tend to be either overtly religious (Lancea Sanctum, Circle of the Crone, Followers of Set), philosophical (Ordo Dracul), or steeped in politics (Carthians, Invictus).
Unlike clans and bloodlines, covenant membership is elective, and can in principle be changed many times. Some covenants, Lancea Sanctum most especially, tend to look very unfavourably to apostates and do not accept members leaving, but this is a policy that must be enforced.
Unlike sects like the Camarilla and the Sabbat, covenant membership isn't based on territory. It is considered acceptable to stand outside all covenants, and covenants mostly keep the peace amongst each other.
