* Let's hear it for the Spirit Wolves (at least before the writers caught on to the UnfortunateImplications and declared them CanonDiscontinuity). One of the crimes that hits a werewolf's harmony is having sex with another werewolf. It's likened to incest, but what happens is that the female, if she gets pregnant will give birth to a....creature that claws its way out of her womb, possibly killing her. It will then break out into the shadow and start hunting werewolves or just anything it can sink its jaws into. And the whole experience of having sex with another werewolf can drive you mad. Yes, not even safe sex will protect your characters.

----* The Lodge of Apollo, full-stop. Made of Ghost Wolves, they don't care about their Luna-given duties. Instead they are hedonists, seeking to use their power to attain wealth and pleasure at their leisure. One sect went so far as to sacrifice ''all'' of their Wolf-Blooded to sate their totem, before moving on to kidnap and sacrifice those of other Packs!

* The Lodge of the Screaming Moon, aka the [[OurBansheesAreLouder Banshees]], [[TerrorHero quite intentionally]]. The good news is, most people [[DarkIsNotEvil need not fear them at all]]; their sacred prey is exclusively beings who exploit fear, either because they feed on it or ForTheEvulz. If you happen to be ''one'' of those beings, though, like an Autumn Court changeling in need of a Glamour boost or a hungry Beast, you'll quickly discover the Banshees organize around the principle of mastering fear themselves, to the point where they regularly declare hunts ''on themselves'' [[TrainingFromHell to sharpen their skills]]. When faced with someone they actually want to kill, they don't just want to murder you and be done with it-no, they want to ''punish'' you first, to [[TheKilleBecomesTheKilled make you feel the same fear you exploited]] and to hear you die screaming-it's literally their Ban, to mark each kill with either their prey screaming or howling themselves if they couldn't pull that off. Their very Hunt rite immunizes them against your fear-remember how you scared people to death? [[NoSell Yeah, the Banshees think that's cute, you trying to give them heart attacks]]. Worse, they're a ''[[MagicKnight sorcerous]]'' lodge-their patron, Zakinsuzi [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Tyrant Over Fear]] gives them to manipulate Fear and Inspiration and even ''Moonlight'' (yeah, he's a Lune, so all of the Banshees are nuts-he's just distant enough for them to be a functional, minor nuts that doesn't impede them at all) so they can better kill you. And oh yeah, most of them are Cahalith, so [[{{Seer}} they know what you're going to do already]]. So...yeah. Start running.

** Alaghidim:
Kani, or alaghidim, crab Hosts, cause fishing boats to vanish
without a trace. While rare in Tokyo, the Kani sometimes sneak
into oceanfront and island districts. One known alaghidim nest
stands as a veritable fortress along a well-hidden outcropping on
the artificial island of Odaiba. For the human populace, Odaiba
is an enormous shopping and entertainment district featuring
nightclubs, malls, and giant replicas of cartoon robots and the
Statue of Liberty. To the Forsaken, Odaiba is a battleground
for the suicidal. Since its erection as an island fortress for the
Tokugawa Shogunate, these alaghidim have claimed the land
as their home. For over a century, “going to Odaiba” has been
an Uratha phrase referring to the suicidal ennui some older
werewolves experience.

*** They have become worse in 2e. Now they enter the living body of a person by their eye sockets and trick their Host’s neighbors, friends, and family into its home to force their body to murder them and demands that their now blind victim build a nest to them with their bones. And if they managed to resist the order? They will just kill him or her and move to repeat the process with other human.

** Afther this gallery of horrors you can feel safe, because at least you know all kinds of Host, right? Wrong. These are just the ones that you will more likely find. In the sourcebook "Blaspemies" are mentioned three more Hosts: The Stinger, a man swollen with living bees that lead a cult that helps "him" create honeycombs of dried skin to "pollinate" both the Shadow and the Real World; The Cat Hosts, feral stray cats that hunt spirits, Ridden and Forsaken afther hypnotizing the locals and that don't look different from other cats; Finally, the GHOST Hosts, human shells Claimed or gutted by legions of dead specters, each one an OmnicidalManiac whose only motivation is destroy other beings and create more of themselves. Want to know something worse? Those are the campfire tales that werewolves tell one another and near no one actually believe that such abominations can exist,that the book lampshades by saying that such short-sightedness will get yourself dead.

** Kha-Yaawk: Leeches that bubble out of the Gauntlet with the rains to enter the bodies of sleeping humans and animals and drain their blood before move to another victim. If their victim body began to rot in standing water, something very likely because they only manifest in rainforest, it will return as a parody of a vampire just as blood-hurgry as their murderer.
