Lycanthropes. Creatures capable of shifting their form between humanoid and beast that live out an often lonely existence in the wilder places of the land. Their power is linked to the Wyld, the realm of the Gillieabad, despite the origin of their kind being shrouded and lost. Those sharing a remnant of their past have bestial sides to their blood which ripens in their veins as they age. They are primal creatures who are brought up in the civilised world but hear the call of the Tao and the Gillieabad on the wind.
Lycan Remnants are usually direct creatures that find solutions to problems and stick with them, sometimes to their own detriment. They are not second guessers, they are doers, achievers and often leaders.

The people of the Royal Basin have a mixed attitude with them.
