Ajaba ascribe to the virtues of Purity, Glory, Wisdom, and Cunning that werewolves do, as well as another virtue of Obligation instead of Honor. All Ajaba have Glory and Cunning as their primary virtues regardless of auspice.

Obligation: Among an Uratha pack, Honor is an important virtue which describes a werewolf's relationship and behavior toward others. Packs would fall apart without these relationships, but the more individual Ajaba have no time for the restrictive precepts of living honorably. Instead, they strive to remain true to themselves and focus on the Obligations that they carry toward themselves.
