Faithful may lose Faith at the ST's discretion. Wraiths can only be Ghouled by vampires using the Nihilistics discipline. Any Wraith returning as a Risen has no former powers.

Revenant

Revenants require two Revenant parents. While it would be possible to have Gypsy, Kinfolk or Kinain Revenants their are no Revenant Families in existence that have Gypsy, Garou or Fae blood so none could be born. In the Dark Ages there was one Revenant-Kinfolk family.
