Y is for the Yellow Sign
The symbol is the focus of the Unspeakable One, Hastur notably in his incarnation the King in Yellow. The sign is usually useless unless imbued with mystical energy or the King's arrival to Earth is eminent. The sign causes madness and warps the dreams of those that view, notably artistic types.
While this is is normally associated with Call of Cthulhu, the elder gods and mythos works are fitting additions to the World of Darkness (as I've mentioned previously).
World of Darkness Stats
Any character viewing an empowered Yellow Sign risks gaining a temporary derangement. Character must make a Willpower roll. Success means they are a bit shaken, but otherwise unharmed. Failure indicates they gain a mild derangement (of the storyteller's choosing) until the end of the story.
