Night's Master by Tanith Lee is the source of a lot of the inspiration for Malfeas. I'd always second Kill Six Billion Demons.

The law of Heaven, like the law of man, is a big complicated mess of bureaucracy that is only orthogonally related to morality.

Their hunting strategy is a combination of real life leopards and drop bear folklore.

Everything under the "animals" header is fair game. Ox-dragons are ordinary triceratopses.

A fogshark is a shark which swims through fog. Of their origins, no more is said.

But they're definitely magical creatures, in the same way that Mice of the Sun would be, if they hadn't been cut from the corebook. All of the animals in Exalted are either based on existing/extinct real-world animals (river dragons, austreches, tyrant lizards), or something that could have believably existed on prehistoric earth or Monster Island (strix, yeddim). I'm not going to try to define the boundary between animals and magical creatures in this post, but "swimming through the fog, devouring unsuspecting victims alive" is definitely on the other side of it.

Though in the Layout Leak, the example Bronze Faction was a Martial Artist who used Violet Bier charms. The leak also had a Gold Faction Sidereal who may be used to aid the Solar PCs. But for wordcount they apparently axed the Gold Faction member, and changed the Swordsman into an Archer.
I think some of the Bronze Faction dude's Charms were just straight up too good

I'm personally not a fan of any wonkiness that could de-Exalt someone being part of the mainline setting.

No, but its great fanon.
"Great" is not the word that comes to mind

Yeah, I was gonna say the mini-fic for Socialize was my attempt at writing a character in that voice.

No. The Exigence is how lesser gods are able to choose their Exalted. The Incarnae wielded that power more directly.

Could two or more Gods make use of a Single Exaltation of Exigency? I'm guessing no. But I'm wondering say say spirits synchronized like say the God of a Field combined with a God of Harvest and the God of Wheat? Or the God of Shadows with the God of Silence?
Yes, but that's definitely in black market exigent territory. Like, really really deep in it.

Most ghosts don't have the Materialize Charm, but they can get little things that let them nudge and interact with Creation in some ways. An Arcanoi for communicating via ouija seems legitimate.

(although honestly I'm lazy so I'd just copypaste the tea reading ritual)

I could be wrong, but I think you meant Single Point.

And you get Z dots to spend on whatever else you want" where Z is actually X-Y. It's the precise same design, but framed in a much better way.
This, from a player-usability standpoint, is such a huge thing. Friggin' Sidereal chargen.
