Silver is a metallic chemical element valued as a precious metal. It has been commonly used in jewelry, ornaments, silverware and currency for centuries. In folklore, silver is long believed to possess purifying qualities and is sometimes associated with the moon.

Silver is also commonly used as a weapon and a method of identification against Werewolves. Silver is an effective against Werewolves as it causes severe burning when in contact with the skin, similar to an allergic reaction. Additionally, silver counteracts the accelerated healing of Werewolves, meaning that injuries sustained through silver will require a longer period of time to heal properly.

Skinwalkers possess a similar weakness to silver, as it will also cause their skin to burn upon physical contact, allowing one to identify them. However, the effects are less severe than with Werewolves.
