Character and Traits

Three important characteristics shape the werewolf. Breed is the birth form and heritage, whether born to humans, wolves, or Garou alone. Auspice is the moon phase under which he was born: a mystical blessing illuminating his spiritual path. Tribe is the specific Garou society unit to which he belongs. These three characteristics are the foundation for a Werewolf character’s background story.

Breed, auspice, and tribe should inspire you as a player to create an interesting combination of traits, interpreting how the intersection of these three axes provides guidelines for a fascinating character. Naturally, these three aspects are merely starting points - inspirational archetypes, not pre-programmed personality traits. In play, your character may become the Platonic ideal of these archetypes, or he may break away from assumptions to define himself in an entirely unexpected fashion.
