Kin-Fetch

Creature Type: Spirit
Affiliation: Gaian
Location: World-wide
Known Abilities: Standard jaggling spirit strengths.

Created during the Baptism of Fire rite, these minor spirits can “kiss” infants of Garou blood, inscribing a spiritual brand upon the child in the form of the newborn’s tribal pictograph. This mark is not visible on the newborn’s body; the only mark left is spiritual. It is impossible to remove this spiritual brand. Such a mark can be traced and recognized by all Garou (including the Black Spiral Dancers, who all too often track down cubs of other tribes and capture them in order to create more of their foul number).

The participating Kin-Fetch spirit is assigned to watch over the young Garou as she grows to maturity, so that the tribe may always know the child’s location and whether she is endangered. When the child is about to undergo the First Change and is ready for the Rite of Passage, the spirit alerts the tribe and the mark is removed.

Unfortunately, such minor spirits are notoriously weak-willed and easily distracted. All too often, a Kin-Fetch loses track of its charge or becomes lost itself, leaving the young cub on her own. Such “lost cubs” often become Lunatics or recluses, terrified of themselves and unable to understand their powerful primal urges.

Winter Song performed the Baptism of Fire upon Zoo’s two litters after his fellow Red Talon fell during the events of Under a Blood Red Moon.
