Bastet is the first of the Breedbook series: sourcebooks about the other Changing Breeds of Werewolf: The Apocalypse — in this case, the Bastet: werecats. This book also introduces the Ajaba, the werehyenas, as a lost "tribe" of Bastet.


From the White Wolf catalog:

The Shadow Children walk the twilight days unafraid,
For none may rival them in their sleek majesty.
None can equal their ferocity;
The jungle trembles like smoke at our furious roars.
The Sun grants us strength to slay the rain,
With a blow from our paw we shake the earth.
None can equal their honor;
The wisdom of forever rides behind our yellow eyes,
Trails unfold before us in the shadow of Thunder's wings,
We run the South Wind among the Stars.
None can equal their cunning;
The dead in the dark corners whispers secrets to us,
We hide the names of things in mist-words and snow-speech,
We dance madly in the most hidden of places.
I bow to Selene and Gaia;
may our deeds nourish our beloved relatives.
Bastet includes:

Background InformationEdit

While the Ajaba are here presented as a Tribe of the Bastet, reflecting their association with the Feliformia that includes cats, civets, hyeans, mongooses and similar animals, later material establishes them as a separate breed.
