Lexicon of the Garou

Common Parlance – These words are in common use among the Garou and are used by Elder and Cliath alike
Vulgar Argot – The younger Garou tend to use these words to help distinguish themselves from their Elders. Sometimes spoken away from said Elders.
Old Form – These words hail from the distant past of the Garou and display their Fianna origins. They no longer share the frequency as they once did, but the odd Elder use them, and some insist that the young Garou speak them in their presence.


The most powerful, evocative and effective way to communicate with other werewolves is by howling. Enormous amounts of information can be condensed into a few wailing sounds. All of them incorporate the Garou language, although not all of them are as “high-falutin’” as the High Tongue. Just as every Philodox studies the litany, any Galliard should be well versed in all the common howls.

Howls can vary greatly from one sept to another – enough so that an attentive Galliard may even be able to recognize a performer’s tribe or auspice, or possibly part of his personality. Optionally, a Storyteller may allow a Galliard skilled in expression or performance to convey further information. Thirteen of the most commonly used howls are listed in the indicated link below. Sane Garou use 12 of them, while one is reserved for a fallen tribe.

Types of howls
Howling and wolf-noises

Size Comparison

Although players have the chance to check out their character sheets when at the game, they might not have the opportunity to see the difference in sizes in their different forms. This picture will help those players get an idea of what each form looks like and their relative sizes.
