Man to Beast - Werewolves and Immortality - The Mind of a Werewolf - Becoming a Werewolf - Damnation - Symptoms of Werewolfry - Relationship between Alpha and Beta Werewolves - Werewolf Features - How to Kill a Werewolf - Silver Bullet Myth


As popularly known, a werewolf is a person who is transformed voluntarily or involuntarily, into a wolf under the influence of full moon. The word werewolf is a contraction of the old-saxon word "wer" (which means `man`) and wolf-werwolf, manwolf. Another term lycanthrope, often used to describes werewolves, however, refers to someone who suffers from a mental disease of fantasizing being a wolf. This particular mental disorder is termed lycanthropy. Is easy to recognise a werewolf, his eyebrows are thick and they cover nose. Has a small tail and his nails are red and curved, he has hair under his tongue. The werewolf suffers when changing.

There are several ways to become a werewolf, they include being given the power of shape shifting through sorcery, being cursed by someone who you have wronged in some way - called Lycacomia curse - being bitten by a werewolf and being born to a werewolf. In case the blood becames tained or cursed.

A person who becomes a werewolf against his will (birth, curse or bite) is not completely dammed until he tastes of human blood. Once he does, his soul is eternally damned and nothing my redeem him.

Werewolves are immune from aging and from most physical diseases due to the constant regeneration of their physical tissue, they can, therefore, be virtually mortal. however, they can be killed by any wound that destroy the heart or the brain, or any form of death that causes brain or heart damage - such as hanging or other oxygen-deprivations methods.
When hunting for a werewolf it is important to remember that your biggest clues will come through your suspects personalities. Becoming a werewolf is not transparent, no matter how the victim tries to hide it. The tainted, sub human blood greatly alter the subjects own mind and personality, even physical appearence, therefore, look for symptoms in your human suspects that include increasing violence, increasing agression, unprovoked rages, insomnia, restlessness, and other bizarre behavior. Unfortunately over time these symptons can be brought under control, so do not rely on then exclusively.
Like real wolves, werewolves can live alone for many years, yet the instinct for a pack often leads them away from their secretive lifestyle, into revealing their nature to a priest or close associate, or converting another to werewolfry for companionship. This is when the otherwisecagery werewolf popens himself to dection! Werewolf packs cause immense destruction. A pack consists of one...
