Quoth the Cynocephali:

“Macedonia? The Indus? Ethiop? All these and more were ours. Cross me at your peril.”

Kith Excerpt:

At one time, the Cynocephali were a Fylí (Kith) to be feared. From the mountains of the Indus to the deserts of Nubia, the Dog-headed ones hunted and killed all who crossed their paths. All recognized their might. They were Lusty Dog-Gods of the wild and rocky places, and everyone knew it. Even later, the new Roman Christ God had his own St. Christopher with fierce dog head to protect him. Everything seemed to be going swimmingly for these Canid warriors, until it didn’t.

The world grew smaller. Where once the tales of mysterious islands and strange monsters awed the masses, now the Greek Sailors mapped the world with charts and numbers. Even that magical and powerful temple of the new Roman Christ God devolved into an ordinary, conventional hub of commerce.

The excitement of the unknown world slipped away, and the lustful and dangerously othered Cynocephali lost an important piece of themselves. Where once they were sexy hungry warlords, they now had to serve as mere ruffians. Where once they were feared as God-Kings, now they were relegated to petty-thieves and leg-breakers.

Yet for all the losses they suffered, they never broke. They still have their skills in combat, and they still have their Birthrights. Tourists that get separated from their Greek-seeing tours often end up in the wild places… and come back with great story of fire-breathing werewolves with “Come-Hither-Eyes”.



“The appeal of the paranormal bad boy – or James Bond super-spy, as one example of male escapism – can sometimes make everyday problems seem less dire. Thus, a few hours spent immersed in the world of the wicked yet alluring hero is the equivalent of a mini-vacation.” – Jeaniene Frost
