    p. 15 -- When describing the Insatiable in the introduction, the sentence "These creatures capture and take over those with any connection to the Primordial Dream before they come to realization as either Beasts or Heroes." doesn't match with the description given of their origins at the beginning of the chapter (particularly how, to quote the chapter, 'A Beast is born feeling that she is different...' '...but an Insatiable manifests suddenly and without prediction.').

    p. 94 -- The paragraph starting with "No one knows what act inspires the Insatiable" is a little unclear, as the word 'Insatiable' seems to be used used both to describe the character as a whole and also their analog to the Horror. If that's intentional, that it sort of means both, it could be clearer.

    p. 96-97 -- While most of the chapter references a singular Primogenitor as an origin for the Insatiable, there is some unclear stuff under 'The Moments' that implies the existence of (or at least belief in) multiple Primogenitors or some other 'founder' of each Moment. One sentence implies that a given Moment may consider itself to have come from another Primogenitor, but this seems at odds with the rest of the chapter. Also, while the text goes out of its way to say that each Moment has its own view of the Primogenitor, only two of the Moment descriptions reference this in any way and one strongly suggests multiple Primogenitors.
    A particular sentence that stands out as unclear is "Each Primogenitor is a place out of history and an era that defined the birth of the Primordial Dream." (emphasis mine) In the context of the paragraph, 'Primogenitor' feels like it should probably be 'Moment.' 'Primordial Dream' doesn't seem to fit with the sentence in context, and it's unclear what that should be.


    Also, notably, there are multiple references throughout the chapter of Insatiable being able to unleash their true forms 'in the same manner as the Beasts,' (to quote one example) heavily implying that the Insatiable can transform in the physical world. Thing is, though, Beasts don't change into an alternate form outside of their Lair or dreams, so maybe this needs clarified. On a related note, there's the 'Horrible Form' ability on page 99 (one of the aforementioned references) and then the 'Terrible Form' Esurient on page 103 and it feels like one started off as the other and some wires got crossed along the way.

        Pg 83-84: Alvin Zane's history describes him as being born in 1966, yet his physical description says he is in his late 50s. One of the two should be reconciled.

          p. 95: "...starve the Primordial Dreams..." -- should be Dream
          p. 102: "...with a successful Occult + Intelligence roll..." -- Attribute always comes first.

            The whole entry regarding Luca Rohner doesn't describe his Horror, which is strange particularly for a Beast Incarnate.

              Alvin Zane's write-up is missing his Lair Traits.

                P.88: Janice's Horror is referred to a Tyrant, then a Nemesis in quick succession. It can't be both.

                  P.89: "the students and faculty alike treats for her to crack open and devour" - missing "are"
                  P.90: you gotta go through Madeline first.” Should be Madeleine.
                  P.91: Increased Awareness isn't an Atavism, it's a benefit of the merger and should be listed at the end alongside Body Warp
