Introduction

Dear reader. This document exists to enlighten you about a species. A species that normal humans think only exists in myth and legends and modern movies.

You are reading this now because of several possible reasons.

A. You are a werewolf and you want to know more about them.

B. You are not a werewolf but you want to learn more about them.

So let us begin shall we.


My name is Shadowscar. I was born in southern Sweden in a town called Lund. I was raised in Sweden but I knew from childhood I was different. Deep down I had this strange feeling. When I grew older and reached my teenage years that feeling got out of the dark and up to the surface.

One day I decided to get answers to why I am so different and why I always felt different and why I never fit in and always felt alone even if I was surrounded by other people. I got those answers the 29th April 2012.

I am a werewolf.

I have no pack and so far I know of no other supernatural creatures in my area of Sweden.

I have not fully physical shifted yet, I have physical shifted partially.

So that was a little about me, I bet you are very eager now to learn about my kind, Werewolves.

Hollywood

Werewolves are not bloodthirsty mindless beasts. When we take our true form the form of a wolf. We have total control. Yes it is true that we have some minor blood lust, but nothing major that will make us go on a rampage for blood.

No, we are normal human looking people that live among you. On the outside we look normal that is until we shift. But on the inside, well that is a very different story.

Hollywood created a lie about werewolves. We are nothing like how they portray us. We have control, we turn into actual wolves, and we do not kill because we are blood thirsty. Werewolves are not rampaging out of control savage monsters. Everything you have seen in some movie Hollywood has made is 99% a lie. The only thing Hollywood is right about is that werewolves do shift.


Werewolf Myths & Legends

There are many stories about the origin of the werewolf species. One well known to werewolves is the one that Zeus himself placed a curse on one man and his family.

One version is that Lycaon was on a rampage killing and slaughtering everyone in one village and then moving on to the next. Zeus cursed him to be trapped in the body of a wolf along with all his children and their children and so on.

The other version is that Lycaon invited Zeus to a feast. Lycaon wanted to trick Zeus so instead of animal flesh the flesh Zeus was about to eat was human. Zeus was filled with rage and turned Lycaon and his relatives and family to wolves. That is the most known story of the werewolf origin.

But there are many legends of werewolves. The Michigan wolf man, the beast of bray road. All of these are possible werewolves. No one knows for sure if they are real werewolves, but it’s possible they are.

These myths and legends could have some truth to them, it’s possible. But not much, some, but not much.


The Werewolf

The werewolf as common people believe it to be is a mindless monster, killing innocent people just to sate its thirst for blood. This is however NOT what a real werewolf is. Real werewolves today are more like the Loup Garou then how common humans see them.

A real werewolf doesn’t physically turn into a wolf until he or she is around the age of 20. That is when your body is almost fully grown and is ready. It is impossible for a werewolf to turn into a wolf at an age below 15. Because your body is not fully grown, it is still growing. Your body is not ready at that time. The first shift hurts like nothing anyone can ever imagine. And you do not shift into some bipedal monster, you shift into an actual wolf. With time and by turning several more times, the pain decreases. Real werewolves have full control of their wolf form, and they do not go on a killing rampage of innocent humans just to reduce their so called, blood thirst.

Some wonder if you can become a werewolf, it could be possible. No one knows for sure. There are many myths on how to become one, the most common one is to be bitten. But since hardly anyone believes in werewolves nowadays it is difficult to test if the bite myth works. Like I said it’s possible, no one has tried to turn someone by a bite from their wolf form so I will just say it is possible. But it could also be impossible. Keep that in mind.


Loup Garou

The Loup Garou is the French word for Werewolf. But it is not the same as Hollywood’s picture of one. The Loup Garou (also can be known as rougarou) is a French legend of a human who changes into a wolf at his/her own will. The word 'loup' is a French word that means wolf and 'garou' is an old Frankish word similar to 'werewolf'.

What makes them different from the common werewolf is that they don't change with the cycles of the moon and have complete control over their actions. So, what makes these creatures so dangerous and terrifying is the fact that while in their wolf form they are completely aware and as intelligent as they are in their human form. With their enhanced abilities and senses, it makes them difficult to destroy. These are magnificent, intelligent and blessed creatures.

This in fact, is what a real werewolf is. A real werewolf is like a Loup Garou. But since humans and movies have made the werewolf look like a beast no one thinks of the werewolf as it actually is. If you know what a werewolf really is then you can call it werewolf. If you don’t know and consider the werewolf a blood thirsty monster then just call it Loup Garou.



Therian
Just wanted clarify that werewolves/lycans/shapeshifters whatever you call them are NOT the same as therians. Therianthropy is a belief that a person has the soul/souls of an animal, it is spiritual. Werewolf & Loup Garou is not spiritual it is physical. If a therian physically shifts then I would say they are not therians but some shifter. They can still say they are a therian if they want to but its not the correct term.


Loup Garou Myths & Legends

There are some legends of the Loup Garou. Some of harming it, becoming one, and scaring children.

The legend says that when a person comes into contact with a loup garou and sheds the blood of the beast, the Loup Garou will then change to its human form and reveal their secret. The victim then becomes a Loup Garou for one hundred and one days. If the victim speaks of the encounter to anyone, they become a loup garou themselves. But if they remain quiet about it, they will return to their human form and continue on with their lives. In the legends, the loup garou is said to be someone the victim knows, such as a jealous former lover.

Another legend about Loup Garou is to make children do chores. The legend was often used to scare children when misbehaving (ex: "make your bed or the loup garou is gonna get ya'!" )


Werewolf & Loup Garou History

Today little is known of either werewolf or loup garou history, mostly speculation and rumors. Sure there is a section of werewolf history on Wikipedia but who says that’s true and a fact? For all we know it’s the normal humans who just made it up or it’s just rumors, but since they had nothing else to go on they call it a fact. Truth is no one knows 100% for sure about werewolf history or loup garou history. We can speculate, go with what Wikipedia says but who says that’s facts. No one does, so all we can really do is guess.


Physical Shifting

Now what is shifting or shape shifting? It is what it sounds like, physically taking the body of the grand wolf. This is impossible? No, nothing is impossible.

Physical shifting is physically transforming into the body of a wolf. It hurts like hell, worse than that actually. Werewolves can do it, it takes time and practice to master it. Once you have mastered it will take less time to turn and will hurt less. Each time you turn you feel less and less pain. Each time you turn you will also gain more control. Yes you do have control of your wolf self, you are yourself in wolf form. You are still you, you just look different. You’re in the body of a wolf. Once you have turned like 10 times it is possible you can just partially shift something. Like claws, or fangs.

There are many methods on achieving physical shifting. Which one works? Well that’s up to you, its individual. Some methods work for some people and for others not so much.

(Note, so much can be said about physical shifting so this is just the basics.)


Packs

Werewolves do have packs, they live in numbers from 4-15, maybe larger. They are very secret nowadays and are very hard to find. The hierarchy is simple. Normally it’s one alpha, two betas and 2-4 deltas. That is the inner circle of the pack, the most trusted members. Some packs only have one alpha and no more ranks then that. Other packs have more ranks after deltas. It’s up to the individual Alpha how he or she wants to run things. A pack is for life, because losing a pack member is like losing a limb. And if a pack member just leaves it’s hard for the pack. So a pack is for life. That is why one has to think hard about if they really want to join. Once in a pack its loyalty that is expected nothing else. Treason and treachery of any sort can be met with severe punishment. Harming or stealing from another pack member, not so severe but the Alpha has to keep order in the pack. The alpha can’t ignore a crime of any sort that shows weakness and possible favoritism towards the member in question.

Some alphas have pack secrets that go from Alpha to Alpha. These can be long lost facts, histories or secrets of some weapon. The secret can be anything. It can also be a pack secret. But it’s not a necessity to have a pack secret. Secrets should almost not exist in packs. Because packs are like family, you should be able to trust your family and always be honest with them.


Hunters

Not many believe in werewolf hunters, there is no real proof of their existence. Perhaps that is the way they want it, like with us werewolves. If hunters to exist it is also possible they don’t hunt all werewolves, just the once that have spilled human blood. But all this is merely speculation, no one really knows. Maybe werewolf hunters exist, maybe they don’t. We don’t really know for sure so we can’t say that they do or that they don’t.


Emotions

Emotions can sometimes be a problem. Say you’re really angry about something, like pissed off. That can cause you to turn. Extreme emotions like rage can trigger the shift. You can start to turn into a wolf just because you are just blind with rage. So it’s a key point to be able to have control of your emotions. To be able to bottle up a rage and calm down, but also to unleash it and use it for shifting. But if you find yourself in a rage in a public area, calm down immediately. Or you can risk exposing yourself and your kind.



Senses

Werewolves have better senses then humans. A normal wolf can track its prey up to 2 miles. A werewolf can for example hear someone 50m away pushing a key into a keyhole.

Hearing: A werewolf hears much better then a normal human. Werewolves can hear someone push a key into a keyhole, hear a conversation from 50m away.

Sight: Werewolves have better eyesight. They can even see in the dark. For a normal human it takes about 20min for their eyes to adapt to the dark. And even after all that time they still don’t see very well in the dark, better but not well. Werewolves see in the dark after a matter of seconds. And it’s much better than humans see in the dark.

Smell: Werewolves sense of smell is way better than humans. They can smell stuff humans don’t even notice. A werewolf can pick up a strong smell from over 20m away.

This is all in human form, it’s more enhanced in wolf form.

This is the end of the Werewolf encyclopedia.


It will be updated with new facts and such from time to time.


I hope you have learned much. But do not speak of anything you have read from this to anyone that you do not trust to keep it a secret.

Beware The Werewolf exists.
