Eshmaki are one of the Families of Beasts. They represent nightmares of Darkness, such as being watched or hunted by an unseen threat. This gives them their nickname, the Lurkers. The Horrors of Eshmaki are quite diverse, with some looking almost completely human except for one unsettling tell. Others take the form of boogeymen or night-hunting predators, and still others are living masses of shadow.
Their Birthright allows them to either inflict a Tilt, such as Arm Wrack or Leg Wrack, with any successful Brawl or Weaponry attack, or to initiate a grapple while still dealing damage from such an attack.
Eshmaki often pursue Kinship with other beings that prefer to keep hidden, such as vampires and changelings. They can be close to Sin-Eaters as well. They most often pursue the Merger Inheritance, and afterwards may still easily pass for human.
