Rage Across Baltimore
Brickbat's Ratkin Buddies
A homid Rat Pack, friends/liabilities of Brickbat
The Ratkin, so the stories go, were given the task by Gaia of keeping the humans in line, culling their numbers through famine and pestilence. In the time of the War of Rage, the Garou sought to command the other shapeshifter breeds, the Bête; in the case of the Ratkin, their skulking ways and spreading of disease and sickness led to calls of Wyrmbait and worse. And so, the Garou hunted the Ratkin, slew as many as they could find, and usurped their position as humanity’s caretakers.
Obviously, they failed.
The Garou by and large understand that not all of the Ratkin dens were found, although the rats have never tried to take back their duty from the wolves. They have other plans in mind. But with the prevalence of rats in human cities, it’s natural to find some are Ratkin, and the Bone Gnawers know them best — although it’s by no means a friendly relationship.
Brickbat has the luck, or unluck perhaps, to have befriended a small Rat Pack in Baltimore. They may appear once in a while to impose upon what passes for Brickbat’s hospitality, and once in a while they may also decide that one of Brickbat’s (or the pack’s) problems is their problem, too. Depending on how you like the results, that could be a good thing or a very bad thing.
