GHOUL (Supernatural Scale)
Sanctoburned (lasting): [ ]
If the ghoul takes damage from a sanctified weapon or comes into contact with a holy object, mark this box. While this condition is marked, the ghoul is unable to recover conditions that represent physical injury.
Human Disguise (sticky): [ ]
A ghoul is able to look passably human with some effort. Mark this box when the ghoul takes on a human guise; while in this form, the ghoul can move through mortal society while attracting little attention. Anyone with cause to look closely at the ghoul may be able to recognize that something is “off.” This condition is recovered when the ghoul returns to its standard form, which is automatic if the ghoul begins to feed.
Need for Meat (sticky): [ ][ ][ ][ ][ ]
Ghouls are constantly hungry and require lots of flesh, preferably human, to sate their hunger. This condition is marked as the ghoul exerts itself, as described in its stunts. If every box has been marked, the ghoul can no longer contain its hunger: the only actions it may take are eating and seeking out additional food. The ghoul recovers this condition by eating vast quantities of raw meat: approximately ten pounds of animal flesh or five pounds of human flesh recover one box.
The ghoul may mark off a box of Need for Meat to recover its In Peril condition, even in combat, provided that the condition represents a physical injury.
The ghoul may mark off one or more boxes of Need for Meat during any activity representing physical strength or endurance. It gains +2 to the roll for every box marked.
In Peril (sticky): [ 4 ]
You may mark the In Peril condition whenever you are hit by an attack. Negate up to four shifts of damage from the attack and then create an aspect that describes how the attack causes damage not easily shaken off (such as a Broken Leg or Shattered Reputation). Whoever inflicted the condition is awarded a free invoke on that aspect. Recover from In Peril when you act deliberately to resolve the peril: medical attention for an injury, a bribe to erase the slight on your reputation. This typically entails overcoming an obstacle against an opposition of Great (+4) or higher.
Doomed (lasting): [ 6 ]
You may mark the Doomed condition whenever you are hit by an attack. Negate up to six shifts of damage from the attack and then create an aspect that describes how the attack has rendered you almost helpless, such as Bleeding Out or Ready to Embrace the Dark Side. Whoever inflicted the condition is awarded a free invoke on that aspect. Recover from Doomed when you act deliberately to resolve the doom: emergency medical attention, the intervention of a White Council healer skilled in mental magic, or something similar. This typically entails overcoming an obstacle against an opposition of Great (+4) or higher. Clear out Doomed at the end of the next session after you’ve started recovery. If Doomed is checked and you are taken out (page 189), death is one of the possible outcomes.

In the late 1970s the Kulikova Clan of ghouls, led by a ghoul known as Vitaly Kulikova, moved into the Seattle Underground. The fact that Cyrus Grey did not destroy them has been a topic of much speculation in the supernatural community though no one seems to know why he has allowed them to live in his tunnels. Safe passage to the Underground must be negotiated with Vitaly although he makes no promises of safety from Cyrus Grey or any of the other monstrous denizens of the Underground.
Vitaly is an ambitious ghoul who rules his powerful clan with an iron fist. He has ties to the Red and White Courts and often provided disposal services if a vampire got out of control when feeding. He also served as Cyrus Grey’s right hand meting out his edicts with ruthless efficiency. Even Dozer of The Pack stayed out of the ghoul’s business essentially ceding Pioneer Square to Kulikova ghouls and by extension the Red Court Vampires that hunt there.
Leader of the KULIKOVA CLAN in the Seattle Underground.
Father of Koto and Nodo.
