Moon Stalker (Druid Archetype)



When the moon is full and a bloodcurdling cry rings out in the distance, the moon stalker springs into action. He is all too familiar with the sound of a tortured creature undergoing an involuntary and accursed transformation into something no longer human. Whereas other druids defend the wilderness, the moon stalker spends his nights hunting his unnatural quarry — lycanthropes. In his mind, the very existence of these monstrous men and women blasphemes nature itself. Though druids can and do transform into animals, the moon stalker believes that nature granted this gift to her willing servants. Lycanthropes, on the other hand, are cursed beings that nature condemned. As members of a damned race, he sees them as scourges that he must rid from the world. In this pursuit, the moon stalker makes no distinctions between good and evil or law and chaos. There is only one absolute in his mind — that all lycanthropes are a blight to nature that he must destroy. None may be better suited to eradicate these monsters than the moon stalker.
