Bastet is the first of the Breedbook series: sourcebooks about the other Changing Breeds of Werewolf: The Apocalypse — in this case, the Bastet: werecats. This book also introduces the Ajaba, the werehyenas, as a lost "tribe" of Bastet.
From the White Wolf catalog:
- The Shadow Children walk the twilight days unafraid,
- For none may rival them in their sleek majesty.
- None can equal their ferocity;
- The jungle trembles like smoke at our furious roars.
- The Sun grants us strength to slay the rain,
- With a blow from our paw we shake the earth.
- None can equal their honor;
- The wisdom of forever rides behind our yellow eyes,
- Trails unfold before us in the shadow of Thunder's wings,
- We run the South Wind among the Stars.
- None can equal their cunning;
- The dead in the dark corners whispers secrets to us,
- We hide the names of things in mist-words and snow-speech,
- We dance madly in the most hidden of places.
- I bow to Selene and Gaia;
- may our deeds nourish our beloved relatives.
- Bastet includes:
A Tale of the AmazonEdit
Chapter One: CalaihEdit
Chapter Two: The Nine TribesEdit
Chapter Three: Breath of LifeEdit
Chapter Four: Cat MagicEdit
Chapter Five: The PrideEdit
Chapter Six: The OthersEdit
While the Ajaba are here presented as a Tribe of the Bastet, reflecting their association with the Feliformia that includes cats, civets, hyeans, mongooses and similar animals, later material establishes them as a separate breed.
