A varied species that is a mixture of primarily humans and werewolves with a bit of other races mixed in. Bred by the vampire race to serve as slaves, Banes poses almost the same physical capabilities as werewolves.Banes do not transform under the light of the moon nor can they transform at will.They can be forced to transform when under extreme levels of physical or emotional stress. However they can retain their transformed state even when not under the light of the moon.Their canine fangs, claws, ears, and tails are always visible,and some Banes suffer intense cravings for blood depending mostly on their heritage. On the night of the full moon, Banes that have experienced transformation often suffer from brief episodes of madness and bloodlust. Bane villages are many and scattered across the land, but their capitol city is located deep in the desert. Banes will often try and surround themselves with as many friends and mates as possible due to their pack instincts. Werewolves view banes as weaker and inferior despite the actual numbers being about 8,000:1.Unlike Werewolves, Banes can pass their traits onto their children.
