A person can either be born a werewolf or can become a werewolf by being bitten and/or scratched by another werewolf.
Silver cannont kill a werewolf. It can cause pain and discomfort, however.
Once a werewolf, always a werewolf. The ‘curse’ cannot be broken.
In their animal form werewolves can communicate with a type of telepathy.
Werewovles are virtually immortal because of their constant regeneration of their physical tissue. As such they have longer lives than humans.
Werewolves in a pack have a sort of psychic link that bonds them together. If one werewolf dies the pack senses the death.
A werewolf can be killed by any wound that completely destroys the heart or brain.
Werewolves do not only turn on the full moon. Nor do they have to turn on the full moon as they get older. A werewolf can change his form and shape shift at will whenever he wants to, at day or not.
Werewolves can partially shift, i.e. only grow their fangs, claws, wolf eyes, etc.
While a werewolf does not have to change during the full moon that is when they are at their strongest.
Werewolves can ingest raw meat in their animal form. If they try to eat it in their human form they will get sick.
Werewolves are naturally warm.
If a child is born to one human and one werewolf the child is a werewolf.
Werewolves have a heightened sense of smell, hearing and eyesight. They are also faster and stronger than humans.
Werewolves have mates. They can bite and scratch each other while fighting and/or during sex without it meaning anything. But if a werewolf ‘marks’ the person they’re with- bites the juncture between the shoulder and neck- that marks them as a mate. Once a werewolf has a mate they cannot reproduce with anyone but their mate and sex with anyone else isn’t satisfying at all.
Werewolves have a heightened sense of sexual desire.
Once a werewolf ‘marks’ their mate they are presented to the pack as a mated couple. It is the equivalent of being married in the eyes of the pack.
A mated pair can have their bond broken by the alpha in a ceremony. It’s a painful physical and emotional experience so wolves have to be sure before they mate.
The alpha’s word is law.
Alphas are usually male. They can be called the Alpha or the Ulfric.
The female alpha, if there is one, is usually the Ulfric’s made. She is called his Lupa.
Reproduction: when the mother to be is a werewolf twins are more common than a single birth. When the mother is vampiric or a human a single birth is more common.
Sex between two werewolves is more often than not quite frenzied as their are part animal. They can, however, be calmer and gentler. It can be frenzied, however, even if it’s the first time they’re together sexually.
Most couples who mark each other as mates either have sex during the marking or after as it awakens the wolf nature. This does not mean it always happens.
Wolves can engage in sex while in animal form though only if one of the wolves is male.
When a wolf marks their mate it is customary for the other wolf to mark them back as a way to accept their new status as a mated couple.
Welcome to Lima, Ohio. The small college town doesn't seem to be anything special but unbeknownst to most of the world Lima holds a secret. Mingling with the humans are werewolves and vampires. They walk the same streets, go to the same schools, eat at the same places. They look human. But they're not human. They're part animal and completely dangerous if they lose control. And for the teenage supernaturals attending McKinley High School? It's really easy for the wolf to take control.
