The Werewolf a.k.a Lycanthrope, Loup Garou is a human who can shift into a wolf-like creature. Werewolves are a shape shifting race of whose origins date back in Medieval Europe.
Myths and LegendsEdit
The earliest case of lycanthropy is Proto-Indo-European mythology as an aspect of initiation into the warrior class.
The Greek myth of Lycaon is that he challenged Zeus by trying to serve him human flesh at a banquet. Zeus rained down thunder bolts and turned Lycaon and his sons into wolves.
During the Werewolf and Witch trials many were accused of monstrous attacks and black magic. Witches were hanged and Wolves were killed. Evidence of these attacks relate to food poisoning and drugs.
Becoming a WerewolfEdit
To inherit lycanthropy one must be bit, born, or cursed.
An alpha's bite will either turn you into werewolf or a different shapeshifter, or it will reject your body and kill you.
Being born to a werewolf parent means you will become a werewolf by puberty, born werewolves have more control and knowledge.
Cursing a werewolf with a spell will make them into giant wolf like creatures with no humanity or control.
Types of WerewolvesEdit
Werewolves are set into 3 different classes.
