Quoth the Tamawo:

“Thank you for all your kindness and sacrifices, it makes it so easy for me to be a Goddess for you all.”

Kith Excerpt:

In days long past, fisherman and hunters would leave offerings of red meat and raw fish to the shining Gods on the hill. These radiant beings would bless the reverent with a smile, a smile that meant good fortune. These radiant beings, known as Tamao or Tirtiris, were blooddrinking and beautiful Aswang that glittered like diamonds in the Sunlight. Some modern scholars of Popular Vampire lore may make certain connections if they wish. The Tamawo certainly do.

The Tamawo see this as just another attempt for mortals to praise the Shining Gods – and to the Tamawo, everything is meant to praise them. While it’s true that the Tamawo are kind and graceful and inhumanly attractive, they are also incapable of understanding that not everything is about them.

Yet there isn’t anything really wrong with that. The Tamawo still weave their way through the Aswang, untouchably gorgeous, but as kind and approachable as any God could ever hope to be. The majority of the Kapatiran (the ones who haven’t fell under the Tamawo’s spell of course) just smile and wave. Let the Tamawo think what they need to…



“Oh, he did look like a deity – the perfect balance of danger and charm, he was at the same time fascinating and inaccessible, distant because of his demonstrated flawlessness, and possessing such strength of character that he was dismaying and at the same time utterly attractive in an enticing and forbidden way.”
― Simona Panova, Nightmarish Sacrifice
