Totem of Respect Background Cost: 6

An offspring of Winter Wolf, Ice Wolf is a very young totem. Despite this youth, he is a spirit of deep reserve and patience. He appears as a hispo-sized wolf with frosted white fur, ice crystals for eyes, and icicles for teeth and fangs. His coolness of heart allows his children to think before acting, and thus he makes it easier for them to make difficult choices. Children of Ice Wolf find it hard to access their emotions, making them less likely to frenzy. This also lends them an air of cold aloofness, and they sometimes struggle in social situations. Humans and other garou may even feel uneasy around his children. Ice Wolf brands his children with a icy white mark on their chests, visible only in the umbra.
