When it comes to treating metis born Garou, I know that from one side of the spectrum we have Children of Gaia/Bone Gnawers that treat them as equal, on the other: Fianna who see them as monsters and Get of Fenris/Shadow Lords who treat them as a weaklings and liability. But what about Silver Fangs? Imagine, that the two noble born committed such "incest" and such bastard is blemishing the honor and good name of the line. I believe that such children are usually smothered in the crib or at best send away. Yes, they can get back to the tribe...but then what about the Falcon - would the spirit admit that such offspring is one of his children?

Maybe I am wrong, but in my opinion Metis SF should be as rare as Silent Strider with access to Ancestors.

I agree with you. But the official material does not agree with us.

The Silver Fang tribebook, in the Lethany section, says that Metis were unknown within the tribe untril the 18th century. The urging situation has made some Silver Fangs to create Metis. They are still very few, but their numbers are growing.

The tribebook I was looking was second edition, but I bet they would be the same in other revisions. I think the real reasons are gamists, they wanted that you could pick a Metis in any tribe you wanted.

I don't see why the Silver Fangs would have more than the standard stigma against Metis, honestly. They are big into breeding true, to the point where most normal members are at least a little inbred, so their seeing the metis as a blemish on their honor because they are a product of incest seems nonsensical. Falcon would definitely accept a metis, at least, since he apparently happily accepts the scads of inbred homid in the tribe.

This is very late, but there is actually an official listed metis Silver Fang!

Two Tails is a Metis Ragabash Silver Fang cub. He seeks vengeance for unspecified reasons.

There's no exact information on his treatment, or if his vengeance might perhaps be related to it being very poor, but the fact he was born and obviously survived past birth, is at least precedence to people like him existing!
