** The Get's tribal weakness is that each member has an intractable intolerance toward a type of person or concept.

to:

** The Get's tribal weakness is that each member has an intractable intolerance toward a type of person or concept. Even though the intolerance in question is often petty and cruel (Catholics, Blacks, Gays, Jews, weakness in general, ETC), they can more often than not be noble as well (Rapists, Child-Abuse, Bullies of the weak, Cruelty).

* DropTheHammer: War hammers are a traditional Get weapon.



* TestosteronePoisoning: And how!

to:

* TestosteronePoisoning: And how!At their best, the Get of Fenris are unflinching warriors who perform great feats of bravery and self-sacrifice in the war against the Wyrm. At their worst, they're Testosterone Poisoning: The Tribe.


Added DiffLines:

* DysfunctionJunction: All Black Spiral Dancer hives and packs qualify. A community that abuses its metis children, treats violence and depravity as normal, and compels its members to traverse the sanity-blasting Black Spiral Labyrinth will be brimming with dysfunction.

Added DiffLines:

* ChildrenAreAWaste: According to ''Warriors of the Apocalypse'', her tribal elders want her to reproduce and pass on her strength to the next generation, but Zhyzhak refuses to bear children. According to her logic, the Black Spiral Dancers have the might to win the war against Gaia ''now'', and the next generation of warriors is irrelevant.
** Subverted in the Time of Judgment scenario in which the Glass Walkers fall to the Wyrm. Zhyzhak arrives on a battlefield, and to everyone's shock, she is visibly pregnant with the Perfect Metis' child.


Added DiffLines:

* MissionFromGod: In one Time of Judgment scenario, Zhyzhak receives a mission from the Wyrm during a dream, and urgently awakens her packmates afterwards. She tolerates no resistance, killing a packmate who complains. Readers never learn what the dream involved, but it filled her with terror and urgency, and involved slaughtering a town full of people in order to lure King Albrecht into battle.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Stripperific}}: Most of the official art depicts her in leather dominatrix outfits. In ''Apocalypse: Time of Judgment'', her outfit exposes a lot of skin.

* BondageIsBad: The tribe nurtures its members' unorthodox and often extreme sexual practices, minus the "safe, sane, and consensual" part.



*ILoveNuclearPower:
** Radioactive balefire is a common feature of subterranean hives.
** Trinity Hive lands and Grammaw are both radioactive due to the Trinity nuclear test. Black Spiral Dancers who spend too much time at or near the hive show symptoms of radiation sickness.
** The Hive of the Glowing Sea in Russia occupies a sunken nuclear submarine and the nearby land. Other Black Spiral hives triggered nuclear incidents across Russia until Baba Yaga made them stop, according to ''Rage Across Russia''.



* Intangible Theft: Black Spiral Dancers have stolen gifts from Gaia Garou tribes, including Resist Toxin, Shroud, and Kneel.



* ReallyGetsAround: Sex among Black Spiral Dancers is fairly indiscriminate. Hives take part in orgies to create metis Garou. Sexual abuse is also one means by which Black Spirals establish dominance during power struggles.

to:

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Sexual violence is rampant among the Black Spiral Dancers.
** Adult metis often teach metis children under their care about the bird and the bees "first hand".
** The Black Spiral Dancers use sexual abuse as one means of asserting dominance during power struggles.

* SanityHasAdvantages: One of their biggest tribal liabilities is their insanity.

to:

* SanityHasAdvantages: One of their biggest tribal liabilities is their insanity. In several scenarios from the ''Apocalypse: Time of Judgment'' book, the Black Spiral's insanity allows fallen Garou tribes to assert leadership over them, displace them from their role as the Wyrm's chosen, or absorb them.




to:

* WeAreStrugglingTogether:
** Resentment, power struggles, and violence are common among members of some hives.
** According to ''Warriors of the Apocalypse'', Julisha-of-the-Thousand-Masks found a Black Spiral Dancer hive, only to discover that all of the Black Spirals had killed each other.


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSuper: Zhyzhak's strength, battle prowess, and favor with the Green Dragon have made her insufferable. Her character descriptions in ''Caerns: Places of Power'' and ''Warriors of the Apocalypse'' state that she makes sure everyone knows that she is the "baddest of the bad". In ''Book of the Wyrm'', after she killed Pirog in a dominance struggle, she told her packmates that Pirog's pack had better fawn over her. In the W20 edition of ''Book of the Wyrm'', she devises plans but expects her packmates to hammer out the plan and details.

* 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.

to:

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.
