  • What would werewolves make of changlings

    I’m thinking bout a story where a werewolves sister becomes a changiling and the pack gets REALLY protective as big brothers are want to do

    It really depends, though the initial assumption by the werewolves, especially if one pack members is a newer Storm Lord, is that she is some obscure type of Claimed. That should be a good way to create conflict and friction

      Yeah, there's no universal rules for how werewolves always react to everything. If you really wanted to, you could even find a reason for a pack to be sympathetic towards a Host or Claimed. But if you want some ideas for how werewolves interact with other supernaturals, particularly how they integrate into a pack, The Pack is a good resource.

        Well to a werewolf Fae are like alien beings, neither spirit or human with no connection to the shadow. Changelings therefore are like alien abductees. They started out human, got abducted and then return with something implanted in them. A magical force that requires them to feed on emotions. I'm sure many werewolves will see changelings as a kind of psychic vampire or someone who has been Claimed by an alien force.

          True.. but if you are sympathetic towards Hosts of all things don’t be surprised when you get murdered by other werewolves- because at that point you are pretty much begging and pleading to be killed by werewolves with more common sense than you.

          There are just some things that deserve nothing but eradication

              Would they though? There is no spirit or second consciousness overriding them? They act of their own free will.

                A Claimed is a single, fused consciousness. A human mind and body warped into something alien by the True Fae could certainly be considered close enough for government work. There are differences of course, but the question is if any given werewolf would both know and care about them.

                That's where the whole "there's no universal rule" thing comes in. A high-harmony Iron Master therapist might seek to learn the details of what seems to him to be an innocent victim of an unknown enemy, whereas a crotchety old Storm Lord warmonger would try to splatter her brains all over the pavement because she looks enough like a Claimed that he isn't prepared to take any chances.

                  Its not beacause they cannot sense the spirit in it that the other worldy force does not affect the mind or spirit, and therefore, they way of thinking and acting of the character. In other world... I think that a pack of werewolf with a little more wisdom, would try to understand and investigate the "claimed" person... to discover something new. The rest... is debatable in term of many angles, wich might be psychological, moral and spiritual.

                  Considering that a pack of werewolf can accept vampires, and mages, in their pack now... wich is probably very rare but still possible, it might be possible that a changeling join a pack too. For that to happen, the werewolves will have to take a wise, and cunning, type, of closer look.

                  Some changeling would be killed... others would become friends... and the pack will ultimately decide.

                      The 2nd edition book "The Pack" actually details Uratha-Changeling relations shortly. According to this, Uratha packs are not averse to accepting fae into their packs, especially if they're of the Beast seeming. The claimed-claim (heh) is mirrored there, but only as a ploy of the Gentry to make the Uratha help capturing the escaped Changeling.

                      But #NotAll, as "Changelings are emotional vampires who toy with humans just to get a fix, as far as some Uratha are concerned." So it could swing either way, depending on the pack in question.

                        Also keep in mind that the Mein the changelings have up will not be automatically pierced by werewolf sense. They may smell different, but they look human. Only deeper investigation (including looking at them from the Shadow, where the Mein may or may not apply) will uncover that something is amiss.

                        Now... if the Changeling is a wolf-blooded who knows them (the minor template remains, btw), then there's going to be a conversation, leading to a more difficult discussion within the pack and a decision on what to do. From a gameplay standpoint it's no fun to just be offed by your former allies, but it is fun to have that crotchety Storm Lord not trust you and be looking out for an opportunity to say "see! kill it!" and splatter her.

                          I think wolves trust there sense of smelll even more then sight. Could them being a wolf blood be a reson for the the true fae to take them?

                            Scent the Unnatural would reveal the nature of the Changing, though not necessarily the specifics.

                              The True Fae are pretty customizable so you could have one that 'likes' taking anything, yes. Though I am basing this on first edition and haven't kept up to date with the new reworking.

                              And yes generally magic would be used to detect changelings, or the totem or random spirit allies or potentially other changelings in the pack. As far as I know changelings don't have a distinct 'changeling' smell though they might have a scent that lingers around them, like dying flowers, smoke, fresh water or whatever. When someone has a scent that seems out of place, it can clue you to other issues with them, but wouldn't necessarily scream 'changeling!'

                              As for 'what werewolves would make of changelings,' it could be anything. They can be members of packs, they can be hunted down by packs. Most packs aren't going to just let people in because they're a changeling, just like most changelings wouldn't trust people just because they were werewolves. It would depend on the individuals involved.
