Werewolf
Werewolves are a breed of supernatural shapeshifters that take on the appearance and traits of a lupine creature.

Origin

Origin of Werewolves

Becoming a Werewolf

In order to become a Werewolf, one must be bitten by a Werewolf under the Full Moon, when a Werewolf is strongest. A bite will spread through one's body as an infection that will either kill the victim or cause them to become Werewolves themselves.

Society

Types of Werewolves

Alphas

Alphas are the most powerful breed of Werewolves that are recognizeable by their glowing red eyes. In order to become an Alpha, a Werewolf has to either have been born from a Werewolf bloodline or kill another Alpha to attain their position as leader of a pack.

Betas

Betas are the second most powerful and most common breed of Werewolves. They are recognizeable by their glowing yellow eyes. To become a Beta, one has to be bitten by another Werewolf.

Packs

Werewolves are generally social creatures that will seek out and form packs to increase their strength and form relationships. Similar to canines, the desire to belong to a pack is natural instinct based on social needs and security. Packs can vary in size and power, but are always dominated by an Alpha, the strongest wolf in the pack. The Alpha in viewed as the leader of the pack and other Werewolfs will form a hierarchy below him. Werewolves in a pack will often display a strong pack mentality and will be fiercely loyal to each other and primarily to their Alpha.

Physical Traits

Werewolves resemble ordinary humans in their day to day lives, though they are considerably stronger and faster even when not transformed. Additionally, they possess heightened senses even while human and their core body temperature is considerably higher.

A common trait of Werewolves is that they can be quite aggressive and easily angered. By nature, they are predatory creatures and grow violent when they feel threatened. Werewolves are very driven by their emotions and may experience involuntary transformation when experiencing extreme emotions such as anger. When using their abilities or while emotional, the eyes of a Werewolf will start to glow.

Transformation

Contrary to popular belief, Werewolves do not transform into true wolves, though they will undergo significant changes while transforming. The first sign of transformation in Werewolves is that their eyes will start to glow. Additionally, they will grow canine-like fangs and their brow ridge will become more pronounced. Their nails will increase in length and will become razor-sharp claws that can easily shred through skin and bone.

The Full Moon

The Full Moon is rather significant to Werewolves and plays an important part in their lives. Although Werewolves are not bound by the phases of the moon, it does effect them. Werewolves are at their most powerful under a Full Moon and only then can their bite infect another person. However, the Full Moon also causes Werewolves to revert to their most feral state, to the point where they are beyond reason and little more than wild beasts.
