Beast Within

Beast Within characters are most commonly the descendants of werewolves in whom the lycanthropy is too weak to allow an actual change in shape; although this heritage can occur whenever a bestial fury is bound into a humanoid. These characters often struggle their whole lives to keep their anger in check.
