In Duat, were-creatures hold a more religious background than the fables of Earth would have you believe.

Each line - Canine, Feline, Avian, and Reptiles - are not considered bloodlines, but are instead called 'sects'. Each sect has been granted their astounding ability by a particular God or Goddess and has erected a temple to the deity in a display of gratitude. Therefore, the individual leaders of the four sects are considered Head Priests, or Priestesses, who lead their people in all manners of initiation and ritual.

Keep in mind, most of these creatures may take on their second forms at will, making a shifter a dangerous opponent.
