* ThickerThanWater: Some cryptids don't care; the rest ''really'' care. The various Healys think this way for their immediate relatives, but not for their distant cousins in the Covenant - they might share blood if you look back four generations, but they are '''not''' family.

* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Lycanthropy is not a species of cryptid. It is a cryptid mutation of rabies that can affect ''any'' mammal (Though mammals weighing less than 90 pounds or so invariably don't survive the first transformation).

It is a deadly disease and treated as deadly serious [[spoiler: even when it is discovered that those infected, after the first couple changes, return to human intelligence]]. Humans thus afflicted do not become "evil" as such, but do develop short tempers and more aggressive traits as a result of their [=DNA=] and body being rewritten to wolf. [[spoiler: Even if the humans afflicted can make provisions not to infect anyone else in their uncontrollable phase, the disease is still ''always fatal'': mammal bodies were simply not made to be shapeshifted repeatedly, and the resultant strain on the heart and nervous system will eventually result in the victim's death.]]

* GorgeousGorgon: At least two three different varieties.varieties. * GreenAesop: The reason the Healys broke with the covenant was because they realized that indiscriminate monster hunting was hurting the ecosystem. For example, unicorns might be bad-tempered creatures that spear a handful of humans every year, but they also purify the local water tables. Eliminating France's unicorn population caused a massive cholera epidemic that resulted in more loss of human life than a century of unicorn attacks would cause.
