Unihar are born between two Uratha, a process forbidden by the Oath of the Moon and the Oath of Urfarah. The process is also called a "Black Birth" and can not prematurely be ended. Methods of abortion fail, since the Unihar is more spirit than flesh. Hateful against their parents who had cursed it with its half-life, the Unihar's hatred draws hungry spirits towards the mother. During the birth process, the only physical execration of the birth is a black liquid, while the Unihar manifests in the Shadow. Its form is reminiscent of Gauru, but covered in black liquid and their maws filled with razor-sharp teeth. They are immediatly sentient and know who is responsible for their creation. The Unihar immediatly leaves to feed upon other spirits (mainly those of Hate, Lust, Regret and Pain) to gain strength to eventually cross the gauntlet. The goal of most Unihar is to harm their parents, but some, once this is done, turn towards other Uratha.
Unihar are immune to effects of both Rites and Gifts, although other supernatural abilities that target spirits affect them as usual. Their ban is the need to exact vengeance, usually against the Uratha that conceived them, burt sometimes against all werewolves or even the whole of the corporeal world that is denied to them.
In Werewolf: The Forsaken Second Edition, the Unihar are not mentioned. The ban within the Oath of the Moon against not cleaving to the human is to keep the Uratha centered on the world of flesh, lest they grow as distant to it as spirits.
