A coven is a formation of at least three or more vampires. Covens are not very common as most vampires prefer to travel alone or in pairs, but a few exist stably over long periods of time, even rising to prominence in the vampire world. As most vampires drink human blood, they are wilder and bloodthirstier than "vegetarians" and therefore do not usually get along with each other very well. In large covens, members can easily turn on each other for domination of blood and the coven could be split apart by the feuding members. This is mostly common in the southern parts of North America, where covens are formed to battle other covens for territorial means.
Vampires also don't want to attract attention to themselves and it is harder to stay inconspicuous when there are many living together in one place for too long. Few covens, however, are exceptions to this rule, and maintain semi-permanent or permanent homes. Doing this requires a great deal of subterfuge—if the coven wants to avoid suspicion and keep the Volturi from becoming involved—and most vampires don't care for the hassle.
