PostSubject: Werewolves   Sun Jul 18, 2010 7:41 pm

In general, werewolves are humans that change their form, partially or fully, into wolves under the influence of the full moon. In many cases, the change is involuntary, particularly to those who have acquired the werewolf 'curse' through heredity or after having been bitten themselves by other werewolves.

Werewolves are often portrayed as possessing superhuman strength, comparable to that of a dozen normal grown men. In some cases, the werewolf is portrayed as being invincible and nearly indestructible, with decapitation of its head and removal of its heart as the only surefire way to kill one. In other superstition the weapon of choice is the silver bullet, or other weapons made of silver. The efficacy of silver has often been traced to pagan belief in the power of certain metals to ward off evil spirits (among Irish folk, iron is used to ward off evil fairies).

For those who have acquired the curse through their own will, such as by entering into a pact with the Devil himself, the change can be done at will and even in the absence of a full moon. It is said that humans who enter into this pact do so out of desperation and often, in an effort to seek revenge for the death of a loved one. In popular European superstition, the Devil is said to appear in the form of a coachman whose carriage is drawn by black steeds. The Devil offers a potion that provides the strength needed to carry out the revenge, in exchange for the person's soul. The potion is often in the form of a vial, the contents of which are applied to the human skin under the light of a full moon. The transformation into a werewolf will then begin immediately and the human has been completely turned into a werewolf forever.
Werewolves are only second to vampires in terms of monster popularity. Perhaps, like vampires, belief in humans that turn into wild predatory (and often nocturnal) animals exists in all major world cultures. Many psychologists attribute this to the natural animal instinct that resides in the psyche of all men, an instinct that existed since the dawn of mankind.

The psychological condition of a person believing he has turned into a wolf is called lycanthropy. The term lycanthrope has usually been used to technically classify a true werewolf. In medieval Europe, some of the people who exhibited lycanthropy were (it is now believed) victims of a poisoning from a bread mold that often broke out during the same period. Research is continuing to unravel this connection.

A werewolf has few weaknesse's but if hit by its weakness canot recover.The werewolves greatest weaknest involves silver. Any object or item made of silver that strikes the werewolf agresivly will be forever marked with the scare's pain .An other of the werewolf's weakness is that he/she can not atack or harm intendedly a real wolf.Although the wolf(ves) may frealy atack or damage his mutant opponent at all time.The last weakness of this formidable foe is a Ritual.The Ritual consested of three elements first and most importent was a person that the humain form of the werewolf truly loves.A huge quantaty of candals of the same origin .
