    I don't have the WoD books for Mage or Werewolf, but I'm going to assume the answer is "no" because the host retains their sense of individuality?

    They might guide or encourage their host, but they don't assume direct control over them. At least not that I'm aware of.

      I think the Shadow is a wraith reference.


      Thoughts ripple out, birthing others

Do you think Sidhe are driven by instinct to find suitable hosts when returning? Or are they able to be more free in where and whom they choose?
        It was implied in several books that the sidhe who freshly came out of Arcadia in 1969 or after (like Yrtalien) retained most of their powers, even though the Mists took away their memories. Which causes a whole new set of questions and problems, most notably when you handle newly created PCs fresh out of Arcadia (those from the Lost Houses who came back in 1999). See the thread I have started here: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...arcadian-sidhe

        It was also implied that the sidhe managed somehow to incarnate in hosts who were quite perfect (wealthy families or positions of power, beautiftull, etc.) or to the contrary homeless people(I can imagine an Arcadian Liam sidhe reasoning that by possessing the body of this homeless guy, he will offer him a better life in Arcadia). So, yes, I took this as a proof that sidhe choose their hosts.

          There is no 'host'. Avatars and Shadows are an intrinsic part of the human soul, rather than parasites. Sure, the Avatar may reincarnate, moving from lifetime to lifetime, but it's still a part of your soul.

          Likewise, so is the fae part of your soul. The two parts come together like the gametes from your mother and father to make one being: a changeling.
