A Night in the Lonesome October - Egypt 1925
Your Familiar is the other half of yourself in animal form. They have their own personality and opinions, but are fundamentally dedicated to your goals. To reflect this, they have their own stats, much like yours. However, instead of Spirit, Mind and Body your Familiar has Investigation, Ferocity and Surreptitiousness. This reflects the usual role of a Familiar.
You allocate points to your Familiar’s stats in exactly the same way as to your own.
Your Familiar starts play with one trait which matches the animal type that they are. For example, a cat Familiar has the cat Trait, whereas an eagle Familiar might have the bird Trait or the bird of prey Trait, depending on what you feel best reflects them.
