* BerserkButton:
** The Get's tribal weakness is that each member has an intractable intolerance toward a type of person or concept.
** The Get DO NOT take kindly to comments about how their tribal glyph (which depicts a wolf born of a wolf) resembles a swastika.



* LiminalBeing: Great Uktena's appearance has elements of both reptiles (his serpentine shape) and mammals (horns); he lives on both land and in water; he's a Wyrm-created being who now serves the Wyld; and he safeguards knowledge that is simultaneously known and unknown (secrets).

The Uktena tribal glyph depicts Great Uktena lying on a boundary, perhaps as a reminder of his liminal nature.

* BrokenMasquerade:
** The Children of Gaia's tribal weakness is that their war forms trigger a milder version of Delirium in normal humans, making those humans much more likely to remember what they witnessed.
** According to the first edition tribebook, the Children of Gaia have a rite for revealing their true selves to normal humans. The rite (used only on trustworthy and ''heavily'' vetted humans) renders them permanently immune to the Delirium and transforms them into kinfolk.



* TheHedonist: Fianna sterotypically love partying, music, drinking, and lovemaking.

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: The revised Glass Walkers tribebook states that Glass Walker numbers are critically low. The narrator assumes that this is because the Glass Walkers rarely if even breed with wolves. The same chapter strongly implies that poor Garou-kinfolk relations, rather than a lack of lupus, is a much more likely reason for the tribe's dwindling numbers.

* CoolPlane: Clashing Boom Boom, one of the tribe's patron spirits, takes the form of a sentient bomber.

to:

* CoolPlane: Clashing Boom Boom, one of the tribe's patron spirits, takes the form of a sentient bomber. According to the revised tribebook, she can also appear as a stern military woman or a fog (as in the "fog of war").



* {{Hypocrite}}: According to the revised Glass Walker tribebook, the Glass Walkers do not treat their kinfolk well. Kinfolk are often seen as little more than breeding stock or grunts who are assigned unpleasant tasks. For a tribe that values human progress and whose whole purpose is to shepherd humans, this is hypocritical.



* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: In the revised tribebook, several narrators observe that Garou mistreatment has alienated many kinfolk within the tribe. They fully expect another Samuel Height to emerge from the tribe's kinfolk and are keeping tabs on at least three powerful kinfolk whom they expect to go rogue.




to:

* StayInTheKitchen: According to the revised Glass Walker tribebook, the Wise Guys were family-oriented and understood that kinfolk had a place in the tribe. Unfortunately, this enlightened attitude did not extend to female kinfolk, who were used as breeding stock or honey traps.


Added DiffLines:

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Garou mistreatment has alienated more than a few kinfolk.
** In ''Kinfolk'', Iolani Darkmoon defected to the Black Spiral Dancers after enduring domestic violence at the hands of her Uktena husband.
** In the revised Glass Walker tribebook, Garou mistreatment has resulted in ''very'' poor Garou-kinfolk relations for the Glass Walker tribe, and some Garou fear that another Samuel Height may emerge from the tribe's kinfolk. The Glass Walkers are monitoring at least three powerful kinfolk whom it suspects are about to do serious damage to the tribe.

!! Golgol Fangs-First

A Get of Fenris ahroun. He serves as high war chieftain of the Hollow Heart Caern and leads the Garou campaign against Pentex in the Amazon Basin.

* ArchEnemy: Pentex. He has devoted his life to waging war against Pentex in the Amazon basin.
* BadassArmy: He created the Warg System (a military-like hierarchy) to organize Garou packs into a large, disciplined fighting force in the Amazon.
* BadassGrandpa: Golgol is an unstoppable warrior in his mid-sixties.
* DeathGlare: Golgol has such a fearsome reputation among the Get that a scowl from him is usually enough to curb misbehavior.
* LastOfHisKind: In the Time of Judgment scenario in which the Get of Fenris fall to the Wyrm, circumstances prevent Golgol and his warriors from participating in the Get siege on the Black Spiral Dancers. Because of this, Golgol and his warriors are among the handful of Get who do not fall to the Wyrm.
* MissingMom: His [[PregnantBadass mother]] gave birth to him in the middle of a battle during World War II. When she died in battle, her pack adopted him.
* OldSoldier: At the time of ''Rage Across the Amazon'', Golgol is 65 years old and the veteran of both human and Garou wars.
* SupportingLeader: In ''Apocalypse: Time of Judgment'', Golgol is listed among the high-ranking and well-known Garou leaders who can potentially lead the Garou Nation, if both King Albrecht and Margrave Konietzko are killed.
* TranquilFury: Golgol is level-headed for a Get and remains calm even in the heat of battle.

* EasyComeEasyGo: Averted in some first edition books, perhaps due to {{early installment weirdness}}. In ''Caerns: Places of Power", one of the leaders of a Bone Gnawer caern in Washington D.C. was a well-to-do political lobbyist. In ''Garou Saga'', Ryn Ap Bleidd noted that Bone Gnawers who worked for Lone Wolf Lupo ended up quite rich.

Out of anger and sorrow, she killed the domesticated canines she had hoped to free.

* AnimalTalk: Bone Gnawer galliards can use the Barking Chain to communicate simple information to tribemates throughout a city. The galliar howls a few simple words in lupus language, which nearby canines will repeat and spread to other dogs.
