Quoth the Yeti:

*None, just quiet watching from afar.

Kith Excerpt:

Experts will tell you that they are bears, or yaks, or perhaps an ape found at unusually high climes. Of course, the rest of the world’s not-experts have their own Truth, that the Abominable Snowman howls across the Himalayas, leaving behind footprints and mystery. None are correct, for the reticent and quiet Yeti is its own entity, with its own needs, and what it needs and wants is just to be left alone.

This Zo-dor (Kith), one of the varied tribes of Hairy-Volken scattered across the Dreaming and Waking World, happily remains inscrutable. Large in body even before their Chrysalis, they take great pains to go unnoticed as much as they are able. Whispering voices, avoiding eye-contact, crouching behind others, the painfully shy Yeti take to the lonely snow-covered mountain-tops as soon as they are able, leaving the world of mortals far behind.

However, this isn’t just due to their fear of crowds. It is also because at the end of the day, the Yeti are wild creatures of the icy wild mountaintops. It is a grave mistake to underestimate the strength of any Kith, and the Yeti are far more dangerous than they appear. Their monstrous visages complete with dark eyes and thick tusks highlight their monstrous nature, equally monstrous strength, and their ability to vanish into an icy storm unhindered by cold, all should serve as reminders that the wild places of the world aren’t meant for mortals… and the Himalayas are no exception.
