Gangrel is a clan of kindred in Vampire: The Masquerade. They are characterized by their connection to the wild and to the beast. They are of the few kindred who can be around animals without the animals panicking about a moving corpse.
How many winters do you have?
Gangrel are known for a strong survival instinct and will not help a childe who doesn't show a desire to survive. When two gangrel meet they will ask how many winters the other has to determine age and prowess for surviving.
Because of their close nature to the beast and their near feral inclinations the bane of clan Gangrel is that they adopt the physical traits of animals when they frenzy. This feature lasts for one more night afterwards.
