A Family is the specific breed of Beast one belongs to.


To the Begotten, all monsters of this world are descendants of the Dark Mother. They themselves, however, have determined several distinct lineages of Horrors centered around a specific set of primordial fears of humanity. These fears and images are reinterpreted and reimagined with every passing generation, but on some level, they haven’t changed in thousands of years. Some draw on a common set of mythological monsters that manifest in the Horror connected to a Beast.

Begotten often interpret the other members of the supernatural world (like vampires or werewolves) as specific branch-families that lost contact with the Dark Mother.
