Whatever the case, Kupala had been imprisoned within the mountains since the dawn of time by the shamans of the werewolves, and longed to escape: Their signature Discipline is Vicissitude, the power to shape flesh and bone like clay, which these Fiends use on themselves tzimizce much as their unwilling victims.
