Your Moon: As a Bone or Storm Werewolf you are may come to be called, you draw power from the Bone Moon in February (Northern Hemisphere) or August (Southern Hemisphere).
If you don’t experience your first transformation beneath the Storm or Bone Moon then it’s likely that Storm Clan or Bone Clan will seek to initiate you beneath the Storm Moon.
Human Form: People might think Storm Werewolves like you are quite serious, analytical, truthful, and stoic – but maybe they just don’t get your jokes.
In human form, you probably have a very polished and neat appearance, except for two things.
1. Very messy hair
2. Hidden somewhere may be the bone markings of your clan, possibly a skull and crossbones tattoo or jewelry that is sometimes even made out of real bone. Whose bones? Don’t ever tell. That’s a clan secret.
Bone Werewolves attract crows and ravens as familiars so as a Bone Werewolf you will often notice a crow or a raven around you, especially at times you are close to transforming. These ravens can help you track and hunt or avoid others but they also signal your presence and your identity as a Bone Werewolf, so better learn to train them fast!
Wolf Form: In wolf form, you Bone Werewolves are usually rangy and taller than average, with ribs that show through your fur for most of the year. As a result you tend to get very cold. Your eyes are exceptionally shiny and the color of steel i.e.: dark blue, gray or black, the same color as the streak in your fur.
As a Bone Werewolf, you can go long periods of time without eating or drinking anything and also without sleeping . This ability enables you to survive and endure in adverse circumstances and long voyages without any food, water or sleep for long periods of time but then you will have long recovery times when you feel like you need to eat everything in sight and sleep all day. But in a long fight, bet on the Bone Werewolf every time.
Hybrid Form: Bone Werewolves like you, like most werewolves, can achieve a hybrid wolf-human form after extensive training. Although as a Bone Werewolf it will take you a considerable period of calm and quiet to this controlled transition form, once you achieve it, you will find that it remains more stable than most other WWs under difficult circumstances.
If you have become a Wind Werewolf, you will find they have certain secret tricks and training to achieve a hybrid form more quickly than your bony cousins. Once you set it, this gives you a faster transition however your ability to maintain your preferred wolf-human hybrid form can be much more vulnerable to circumstances beyond your control. Circumstances that your enemies may know how to exploit.
Habits & Customs: Bone Werewolves are obligated by the clan to keep their human and lupine life separate and secret but they have a lot of difficulty doing so.
In general, as a Bone Werewolf you will experience a slow, controlled transformation from human to wolf form. Sometimes in an emergency this can result in an incomplete transformation that never advances past the skeletal system stage. Fighting as a lupine skeleton can have some advantages though in terms of scaring your opponent.
Social Structure: Bone Werewolves like you are typically very solitary. You are known to travel long distances in both human and wolf form, often with your scavenger friends, for instance a raven or crow friends more so than with other humans or werewolves. That’s just the way you prefer it. Other werewolves think of you as packrats because every clan has a hidden nest full of unusual objects of secret significance.
Allies: For some reason nobody knows, most Bone Werewolves can communicate with zombies and other undeads including certain mummies and have been known to enlist them to do their bidding – but they will only do this under dire circumstances.
Powers: As a Bone Werewolf, you can use your powers in different ways depending in part on your choices, including your choice of of Alliance and Mythos.
Bone Werewolves may choose to be members of either Metallos or Aeolian Alliance. Many of the Bone Wolves who join the Aeolians prefer to be known as “Storm Werewolves.”
When challenged, Bone or Storm Wolves are most powerful facing north, in the dead hours of the night, alone.
