Kate Daniels World Character Guide

Long ago, the world was built on magic, but the advancements of mankind swayed the balance to technology and magic went dormant. Centuries passed, with the creatures of magic considered little more than myths and fairy tales. And then, 30 years ago, the world changed back. With this second shift, tech fell in spectacular fashion…skyscrapers collapsed, planes fell from the sky…and beings of unbelievable powers rose once again. Shapeshifters, vampires, mages and warlords are the new normal in the early years of 2040, and things are just starting to get interesting. This is a quick breakdown of some of the major players in Kate Daniels’ world.

– Shapeshifters –

Consisting of 32 species divided into 7 Clans, those afflicted with the Lyc-V (Lycos) virus have the ability to change into an animal form, with incredible strength, speed, and heightened senses. But the price they pay is steep. No shapeshifter can afford to lose control, not even for an instant. They are at constant war with themselves, their animal instincts demanding they slaughter without discrimination, and their minds in constant battle against the bloodlust. Those who find control live within a highly disciplined and structured pack, but those who do not inevitably go loup and become the most vicious form of killers, stopped only with their own death. Their passion and power make them the natural rivals of The People.

– Clan Bouda –

Although their clan has only around 30 numbers, the werehyenas (or Boudas) are a powerful presence in the Pack. Matriarchal in nature, the Boudas are passionate, vicious fighters who hold a grudge, and even the other Clans are wary of taking them on. They have a long-standing mutual hatred with Clan Wolf, and although they are much fewer in number, they make up for it in cunning.

– Clan Heavy –

Consisting of werebears, weremoose, and wereboars among others, the Shifters of this clan have large beast forms. When brute force is needed, Clan Heavy is the answer. Incredibly strong, one werebear or werebison can have the same impact as a tank.

Doolittle – werebadger. Pack Medmage. Paralyzed by the Lamassu in Gagra.

Eduardo Ortega – werebuffalo. Part of the Shapeshifter envoy that travels to Gagra. Mate of George (Georgetta) Delany. Separated from the Pack with Curran Lennart and Kate Daniels.

– Clan Jackal –

The quietest of the seven Clans is the Jackals. While all Shapeshifters are highly dangerous, the Jackals are known for their cunning. Peaceful and family-oriented, the Jackals share much in common with the Boudas, and have a natural rivalry with Clan Wolf.

Members of Clan Jackal: Brandy Kerry, Chandra, Colin Mather (Alpha), Geraldine Mather (Alpha Female), Janice, Michelle, Tamara

– Clan Nimble –

The shapeshifters of Clan Nimble are somewhat of an anomaly, often valuing wisdom and experience over brute force. The clan itself consists of those Shifters who have smaller beast forms, including weremink and werefox, among others.

Members of Clan Nimble: Dingo (weredingo/deceased), Joshua (werecoyote), Myong Williams (weremink)

– Clan Rat –

The Rats believe in the status quo, and they usually only attack if they are sure they can win. Not big on trusting outsiders, they usually take the role of spy or assassin.

– Clan Wolf –

The Wolves are the largest clan in the Pack, and often take the lead in battle. With their greater numbers also comes the greater hardship, since more of their children turn Loup than all of the other clans. They are usually intensely loyal, highly disciplined, and have near-perfect memories.

– The People –

Proficient in both magic and technology, The People are in fact Necromancers who pilot and control Vampires. Both powerful and dangerous, The People are wealth-oriented and prize power above all else. Unemotional and cold, they are the rivals of the Shapeshifters.

– Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid –

Powerful and respected, the Knights of the Order serve with complete loyalty and dedication. Providing aid to anyone who asks – regardless of whether or not they can pay for the service – the official mission statement of the Order is to protect humanity against all harm, by magic or weapon. While they might be both highly competent and completely lethal, the Order can also be judgmental and controlling. They have chapters in most major cities. Their prime directive is to ensure the survival of the human race.
