    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeees? I've never read the book, although I really want to, so the below is the results of my research into it a year or two ago.

    I believe it wasn't part of the line, but it deals with the aftermath of the metaplot events that ended Wraith (which was one of my favourite games in concept, but I didn't like the execution). It was in essence Wraith with the perspective flipped to focus on the living rather than the dead, you worked for a corporation that dealt with hauntings and employed both psychics and ghosts, and I believe that later in the line you had to deal with other corporations dealing with the afterlife in a much less ethical fashion.

    While I can't remember the names there was like two types of human (those who could astrally project on command ans those who needed to be frozen for it), normal ghosts, and a couple of kinds of special ghost. Changes from Wraith included Arcanoi being replaces with Horrors as ghostly abilities, and ghosts no longer having a Shadow in their heads but instead having an evil doppelgänger. Also Oblivion got changed, and I believe was focused on Grandmother rather than the Neverborn(? I forget if Wraith used Neverborn or Onceborn, or even both).


    Now I'm trying to remember if Demon had any options other than demons. I don't think it did, both Hunter and Demon seem to have been more focused than the games which came before them.

    One of the Dark Age Vampire books had playable Gargoyles.

    The Player's guide did, as well. I loved their Flight power, just for giving a vampire wings. Their specialty power (whose name I forgot, because all of them are letter salad) was a mix of Protean and Obfuscate, IIRC.
