Quirks of Genetics

  • Mixed Morph - Murdoch can transform any portion(s) of his body without completely changing forms. Due to much practice (and situational abuse) of this ability, it's nearly seamless and sometimes even happens on instinct alone. When attempting to intimidate someone else, he also has a habit of calling upon his lupus form's eyes for a few seconds - just to make the other person question their sanity or fear him (he doesn't care which).

  • Tribe Flaw - All Fenrir have some sort of prejudice. For Muds, it manifests in the form of a vehement intolerance for weakness, often to the point of coming across as a jerk or instigating conflict when he just means to show others how strong they truly are. (Although sometimes he's just keen on punishing someone for being too weak.) As far as he sees it, those who need sparing really don't deserve it. Because of this, he's particularly hard on himself as well.

  • Silver Issues - In addition to the expected negative reaction to silver, contact with it causes permanent scarring and could, in smaller quantities than necessary against other garou, kill him - regardless of what form he's taken. When in the presence of silver, due to his ability to sense it, there's a certain sense of uneasiness which might just tip off someone superstitious enough to put the two circumstances together.
