What would the Garou know:
Steinar comes from a small Sept in the north mid east of the US called the Sept of Home and Hearth. The Sept guards a small Caern, a sort of waypoint in the middle of nowhere, held by a small clan of Get of Fenris who have recided there since the days the first Europeans set foot on American soil. Traditionally, those who were born and first changed in that area would stay there. Almost all of them would belong to the same family and the only outsiders allowed in would be those that came to mate into the family. A quick look into the Sept would yield that no Garou have left the Sept for another in almost a century.
He has taken a stance and has expressed it vocally on what he thinks about the Fera, the Kinfolk with Powers and the Kinfolk Mages that visits the Sept. In his mind, Kinfolk with Powers tell a falsehood when they claim its a gift from Gaia. In his mind, the Kinfolk are a product of Garou mating with humans, but they are still mostly human. Through all the history of the Garou, all of the gifts of Man comes from the Weaver. In this case, he believes it to be the same. As for the Mages? A higher form of human, without a doubt. A gift from the Weaver? All of their powers seem like it. Favored children of Weaver, in his eyes.
As for the Fera, he has been outspoken about how he feels they are guests at the Sept. A guest should be honoured, as long as it follows the rules of the hosts. Once that line is stepped over, there can only be one reply.
What would the none Garou know:
Well, first of all.. why would you look into Steinar? Well, if you do, its nothing really hidden. He comes from one of those hillbilly type communities in the northern mideast of the US from what would appear to be a community of old Scandinavian descendants. He probably came to the City to look for work and escape the lack of progress commonly linked to small closed-knit family groups.
