* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: He's reticent on the subject of Mockmaw, an ancient Black Spiral Dancer king. In ''Garou Saga'', Writlish tells a fellow scholar that the Black Spiral Dancers have little memory of any Garou by that name. In ''Chronicles of the Black Labyrinth'', he tells Frater I.I. that "Moch Maugh" refers to a personal name, but little more.

** The letters of Titus Germanicus in ''Chronicles of the Black Labyrinth'' are full of references to "Worms of the Earth". The appendix of ''Chronicles of the Black Labyrinth'' mentions Titus Sulla and links Brennus with Bran Mak Morn, two characters who appear in "Worms of the Earth". The Pictish warrior's warning to Brennus about the Wyrm creatures he once summoned -- "You called them and they will remember" -- is a line that Atla delivered to Bran Mak Morn after he summoned chthonic beings to capture Titus Sulla.

The Khara, were-sabretooth tigers, fell into extinction with their species.

healers. They're organized into tribes that tend to divide themselves by geographical habitat: Forest Walkers, Ice Stalkers, Mountain Guardians and River Keepers. The Okuma of Asia died in the Beast Courts' War of Shame.



Werereptiles (crocodilians and large lizards) who decended from the dinosaurs, divided amongst species lines by "Varnas". Their ancestral memories give them a grasp of ancient history that other supernaturals lack. This also forms the basis of their Archid form which takes the form of various dinosaurs mashed together.

** ''Way of the Wolf'' discusses breeding practices among lupus Garou. When a lupus is ready to reproduce, s/he interlopes into a wolf pack, establishes him/herself as alpha, and compels the former alpha wolf to mate. The idea that the alpha pair of a wolf pack might have other plans is not considered.

* EnfantTerrible: Many Black Spiral Dancers exhibit cruel and violent tendencies as children. Several of the Black Spiral Dancer characters in ''Warriors of the Apocalypse'' did terrible things before their first change. The first edition of ''Book of the Wyrm'' states that murder is not unheard of (and rarely punished) among the tribe's metis children, who are raised collectively underground.

* {{Badass}}: Even by changing breed standards, the Rokea are NOT to be trifled with.



* {{Badass}}: Order members are tough, tenacious warriors against the Seventh Generation.



* {{Badass}}: A given for a war god.



* {{Badass}}: You don't survive all nine circles of the Black Spiral Labyrinth and rise to the top of the food chain in Malfeas by being anything less.



* {{Badass}}: She's a formidable fighter.



* {{Badass}}: She has been known to take on packs of Gaian Garou singlehandedly, and win, in ''homid'' form.



** In the revised edition of ''Book of the Wyrm'', Pirog tried to force himself on Zhyzhak and thereby gain control of her pack, knowing full well that she had a reputation as a {{badass}}. [[TooDumbToLive She quickly overpowered him and killed him.]]

* CharacterDevelopment: The entire tribe as a whole was forced to reevaluate its "survival of the fittest" mantra after the Swords of Heimdall took that mantra and joined ''AdolfHitler'' to wipe out the "weakling races" of the world, dragging the good-name of the ''entire'' tribe through the mud. From World War II onwards, the Get of Fenris gradually become more compassionate, though still no more merciful, in their world view.
