A slight rustle to your left, grabs your attention, and
you spin -- only to find nothing. But they're there.
You move on, and the rustling begins again. Again
you stop, with the same result. You begin running,
fleeing, screaming...and then, no more.
The Gangrel are associated with transmogrification, and vagrants. As a symbol, Gangrel often use an eye with four slashes underneath. The Gangrel clan's magical Discipline, Protean, allows them to assume partial or complete animal forms. Their mastery of Protean is so much greater than any other Clan that Gangrel can assume virtually any animal form, providing it is a scavenger or a predator. Other vampires with the Protean Discipline are limited to the forms of Wolf and Bat.
The Gangrel, despite living in the wilderness, are attacked much less often by werewolves than other Vampires, some speculate that the werewolves and Gangrel have a shared origin.
In the Dark Ages, the Gangrel were the Vampires most commonly associated with the Road of the Beast, which dictates a life based on instinct, similar to that of an animal, living in the immediate present, having no morality, killing whenever necessary but only then.
Gangrel become increasingly animal-like each time they frenzy. As Gangrel age, they increasingly resemble that which they truly are - the Beast.
