(Garou) For some reason, your character tends to have a better connection with the totem spirit than others in the pack. Maybe you're the totem's favorite even? (Brown noser.)
In game terms, Totem points are used to purchase the Pack's Totem spirit (they generally cost between 4 and 8 points), and once that's done, to help to build the spirit up, giving it additional powers. Logically enough, this means a more powerful pack totem. Is it any wonder you're the favorite?
