All kinden claim a connection to an Ancestor Spirit (or Ideal Form, for the more scientifically minded) which has granted its Ancestor Art to their breed. This manifests in a number of ways:

  • Firstly, there are some innate physical advantages that some kinden have over others: things like size, speed, strength and endurance.
  • Secondly, anyone who spends time training themselves can achieve a level of empathic communication with the (giant) insects of their kinden.
  • Thirdly, there are Arts which are ubiquitous to some kinden, like Flies' wings or Scorpions' claws.
  • Next are those Arts that manifest only in some members of a kinden, either through necessity, desire or the vagaries of fate.
  • Finally, some kinden are disposed towards certain emotional responses: the Wasps' rage or Beetles' indifference.
