Even a man who is pure of heart
And says his prayers by night
May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
And the autumn moon is bright.
"The Lycanthrope. Werewolves, a dangerous and infectious breed! These are raging monsters, they are born of beasts and the savagery of this despicable fact cannot be bred away. When the full moon crests in the sky, whosever unlucky enough to fall under the werewolf curse turns into a wolf. [...]Let's just say if it were a choice, it wouldn't be called a curse. Werewolves will attack humans, but instinct and centuries of rivalry have hardwired them to hunt their prey of choice -- Vampires."
- —Oracle on werewolves
"What about a human by day, a freak animal killing machine in by moonlight don't you understand? I mean, werewolves are badass.I myself haven't seen one in almost 20 years. You know what the best part about it is? I already know how to bring these suckers down. One of these bad boys right to the heart."
- —Rayne Van Helsing on werewolves
Werewolves (or also known as Lycanthropes, Lycans, Loup Garou, The Children of the Moon, The Servants of the Moon, or Beasts and sometimes even just "Wolves") are basically a supernatural species/race of shape-shifting individual creatures that have been encountered by hunters and are one of the primary creatures of the series.
They are able to, through means of dark magic or a curse (usually during a full moon), unwillingly transform/morph/change themselves into fearsome, horrifying, and extremely hostile wolf creatures during full moons, shifting between human and wolf form. It has been stated that werewolves and skinwalkers are cousins. There is no known cure for lycanthropy. Werewolves are extremely savage and powerful. According to legend, it cannot abide by the scent of wolfsbane (aconite), and can only be killed by piercing the heart with a silver bullet or a blade, cutting off the head, and burning the body to ashes.
One may become a Werewolf by being bitten, a pact with the Devil, a curse, drinking water from a wolf’s paw print, and other ways. Even in their human form, all werewolves do possess superhuman physical prowess. Werewolves are the most dangerous enemies of vampires because a bite from a werewolf can kill a vampire. Werewolves are designed to kill vampires on sight in their wolf form. Though they still hunt human prey when there are no vampires to kill. Werewolves appear to be a natural occurrence. The werewolf gene is passed from parent to child. At least one parent must have the werewolf gene, triggered or untriggered. There are no known cases of a person becoming a werewolf from a bite.
Werewolves have been around since what he calls the "beginning," which could be referring to the beginning of the werewolf race. Not much is known about the history of werewolves, except that they existed just as long asvampires, who were known to be created 10,000 years ago.
And like with the vampires, the origin of the werewolf race remained a mystery, but it turns out that a cavemen (some 10,000 years ago BC) was hunting a large black wolf that killed his parents. The hunter, back then known only as No-Man, still had his siblings. And they went with him to find the wolf. And after they found that wolf, it turns out the wolf had a family of its own. So the wolfs and No-Man's family fought one another as No-Man and the Great Black Wolf fought in a bloody confrontation but the man eventually won and killed the wolf. But somehow, after all of the wolves were killed, the energy of the wolf transferred to the man and he became one with the wolf, and from that day, the werewolf species was born, creating what is called the primordial Werewolves.
The initial, most basic shifts in morphology for a werewolf are a change in eye colour, a lengthening of the claws, and an elongation of their fangs.
The most commonly seen werewolf shapeshift, as well as the most practical, is a near-human shape that includes all of the above features. Further transformations of this form consists of a widow's peak and heightened brow, an alteration of body or facial hair including sideburns on their cheeks, a lengthening and sharpening of their ears, as well as the ability to run using a combination of their hands and feet.
In the case of Kali, during her shapeshifting, her toenails manifested into claws. Most likely this was due to her frequent footwork, to supplement her martial arts' form of combat.
Ethan and Aiden, being hereditary fraternal twins, could merge their bodies into one overlarger shape, which resembled the near-human form, but was much more powerful.
As werewolves grow in experience or if they were to undergo an Evolution, they can develop the ability to shapeshift further. An Alpha werewolf is supplemented in this talent due to the spark of power that makes them an Alpha. Depending on their power and character, their transformation could manifest as either an animalistic wolf beast, or an bipedal wolfman.In Season 1, Peter Hale became an Alpha by murdering his niece Laura, and went on a vengeance-fueled killing spree: he could transform into a grotesque, hulking inhumane beast-like form that could stand upright, but ran on all fours.
Later on, after losing his Alpha status, he was able to manifest the near-human form, but with more enhanced brow ridges, abnormally larger fangs, and his skin took on a greyish hue.The Alpha Pack leader Deucalion, known as the Demon Wolf, could transform into a humanoid shape with dark blue-gray skin and more demonic than wolf-like features.
In Season 4, Scott McCall underwent an Evolution and gained addtional fangs. In Monstrous, when he was about to murder an assassin out of rage, Scott began to transform into a bigger, more bestial shape with black-gray skin and a darker Alpha red. When he spared the man's life, Scott reverted back to his normal form.
A werewolf is able to eventually shapeshift into an normal wolf shape. This ability of shapeshifting is rare, and can be achieved after a particular process of Evolution. One's powers reach their zenith when they assume this shape. Two people known to assume this full wolf shape are Talia Hale and her elder daughter Laura, bot of whom were of Alpha status.In Season 4, Derek Hale due to undergoing and surviving multiple tests of experience underwent an Evolution necessary for this capacity to shapeshift that was triggered when a Nagual spell cast upon him by Kate Argent wore off.
The Evolution manifested initially as Derek's Wolf eyes changing back from blue to yellow.
Thereafter he began to lose all his werewolf powers, senses, strength, speed, healing, and status. He was rendered totally human. Later on Derek died from being stabbed by a berserker. He then revived as a fully transformed wolf, and he was able to defeat, overpower Kate and the berserker.
Derek realized his loss of powers and death were because "(He) was Evolving". His werewolf status had reached it's final level of development and he was now a fully Evolved werewolf.
After their first transformation, werewolves' physical appearance and muscle mass is enhanced and perfected . Their eye color changes though. As they grow older and more disciplined, werewolves can learn to channel their lupine nature to discover the differences between the scents of various humans' blood, as well as scents of other things (like fabrics - the unique scent of denim). The range of their senses can be increased (thought only fractionally) through concentration. They can hear sounds coming from several miles away, and even as they are asleep, they can be sure that there are multiple people in a room thanks to their varied breathing patterns. They can hear the sound of a heartbeat, a pulse thudding in a vein, and words spoken too quietly or too fast for humans to detect. Their enhanced vision allows them to see the smallest details, and often see things in Black, White, and Red. Unlike vampires, werewolves do not find it uncomfortable or irritating to wear glasses or contact lenses. They are viturally undetectable to other supernatural creatures. . During the night of the full moon, their venom becomes active when in their werewolf form. The scent of the werewolf saliva is extremely unpleasant, not only to humans, but to vampires and Shape-shifters as well. Though immortal, their body's smaller natural changes still occur. They cannot age or grow in size, the small things like fingernails, toenails, and hair will be able to grow - if they are cut they will grow back soon. Werewolves cannot gain weight. They show no physical and mental illnesses and defects, but their voice becomes different and almost rugged. Their hearts still beat. Werewolves sometimes describe themselves like vampires do, they are unchanging, "living stone" beings frozen exactly as they were when they were transformed. (Though the skin feels smooth, soft, and blazzing hot). Children of the Moon have the body temperature of about 110°F. Vampires' temperature are lower than humans'. This high temperature allows werewolves to bear cold weather and makes it difficult for them to become overheated. It also makes it very difficult for vampires to harm them in combat, due to vampires being extremely sensitive to high temperature. Their skin is like "touching fires" and, "unbearable to the touch". Werewolves, though essentially immortal and indestructible, can be killed. However, vampires are unable to compete with werewolves in strength and speed under the full moons, so therefore they are highly unlikely to win a fight if a transformed werewolf. Even in a group. This reason is why it is necessary to kill a werewolf when it's in human form. , cut off their heads, or tear it into pecies. These are the only known to kill a werewolf.A werewolf skin is described as "chalky", alabaster, or marble (because of its texture and feel, as well as its appearance). Regardless of original ethnicity, a werewolf skin will be exceptionally pale. The hue varies slightly, with darker-skinned humans having a barely discernible olive tone to their werewolf skin, but the light shade remains the same. They owe their unnatural pale complexion to their lack of blood flow; once they reach the first anniversary of their transformation, they no longer possess blood of their own (though they still become slightly flushed after feeding). When the venom spreads, it also leeches pigment in the skin, so after the transformation is complete, the werewolf loses nearly all its skin color, as well as any moles, freckles, scars, tattoos, or any other part of the skin with pigment from their human life. Their strong resemblance to marble statues rests also on their skin's granite-like appearance and impenetrability, as well as the now useless need to blink—the venom-based fluid that resides in the eyes now fulfills the function of eyelids and also lubricates the eye so that it can move easily within its sockets. The werewolf also is unable to produce tears after the transformation, as tears are used to remove objects harmful to the eye, and those objects would be unable to harm a werewolf eye. A werewolf may not move at all, if need be, and if they stay immobile for several thousand years, they will start showing the appearance of fragility or petrification, though their physical capabilities will remain unchanged. Aside from Aro's clouded, "milky" eyes, Bella notes that his skin—as well as that of his brothers, Marcus and Caius—looks like paper. However, though they feel closer to shale than granite, they are no more fragile than those remaining active.The venom, and venom based liquids replace all of the natural chemical processes and functions in the body. It wets and pools in the mouth instead of saliva. It coats the eyes, burning through contacts after only a few hours, protecting them from damage and thus eliminating all necessity and reason to produce tears. It also lubricates them, allowing them to move around more easily within their sockets. A similar venom based liquid lubricates between the werewolf cells allowing their hard stone bodies to move. If a werewolf were to remain motionless over thousands of years, dust will actually begin to petrify in response to the venom based liquids, turning their skin powdery and similar to shale in texture, as well as their eyes which develop a milky film over their red irises making the eyes appear pink in color. These imperfections, however, do not affect the werewolf impenetrability or compromise their vision, a werewolf that stays motionless would be just as indestructible and sharp as a werewolf remaining active.
Psychological Characteristics Edit
When a human becomes a werewolf, all of his or her natural behavior, needs and characteristics are heightened at the same time as the develop fully. From the moment a werewolf is made, his/her interests, personality is all permanently greatened.For instance, if one with a loving character becomes a werewolf, his or her passion is magnified, allowing him or her to love others even more intensely. Another example is if a human was ambitious and cunning, those characteristics become magnified as a werewolf, thus making him or her ruthless killers Over time all of these emotions are calmed down, and then the werewolf can return to life where they do keep control of their emotions in human form. Aside from their personalities, they also have terrifyingly ferocious instincts and a compelling drive for protecting others and destorying challengers. Werewolves have to feed in order to hang onto their original personalities, and keep themselves under a moment's self-control as beats. Rare but possible, newborn Werewolves often try to lock themselves up, restrain themselves, until they (in werewolf form) break out, the longer they try and keep resisting that urge to feed, it becomes hard for them to resist it, and they will give into the hunger that starts to force itself on the werewolf sooner or later. Once a werewolf falls in love or makes a successful bond of loyality with someone, that feeling never does fade. As a general rule, only the bond between love can prevent werewolves from killing their love as Werewolves. Larger Packs are more stable, but usually end because they draw way to many kinds of attenetion to themselves and unintentally calling forth the wrath of the Volturi. It's possible for a werewolf to fall in love after he'd been turned, and that love will be just as permanent as any other. Another prevalent werewolf trait is that of a vengeful nature. The most common example of vampire vengeance is the aftermath of the loss of a mate. When a werewolf loses its mate, it may take centuries to recover. They will not rest until the party(ies) responsible is eradicated. Centuries can pass without lessening the ferocity of need for vengeance. However, it is possible to suppress that desire.
Though there are a range of werewolf lifestyles, the most common, are packs. After their near-extinction, all of the remaining werewolves found it safer to stay closer to each other in packs, moving frequently and never stay in a place for more than a week. This pattern is part of a attempt to hide from the notice of both the humans and vampires. If the vampires become aware that werewolves are area, suspicions might be aroused, and the monster hunter international might take notice to wipe them out again. Also, if a werewolf interacts regularly with humans, eventually humans will notice that the werewolf isn't aging or dissapers once a month. A few werewolf packs are exceptions to this rule, and maintain semi-permanent or permanent homes. Doing this requires a great deal of pack loyality - if the pack wants to avoid detection and keep the monster hunter international from becoming aware of their existence.
Pack behavior Edit
In their werewolf forms, werewolf show the general behavior of their titular animals, though they don't have their human intelligence, memories and character under the full moon. Unlike the Shape-shifters, werewolf packs are not linked to each other telepathically, greatly increasing their coordination during hunts and fights but allowing them all of their privacy.Alphas can control other werewolves (in human form). The dominant male or female, the Alpha one, can force the other members to obey orders against their will. Alpha status is related to dominance, and by having fights to the death, they can select a new alphas to lead the pack. Though entirely possible, it's clear that a lower-ranking pack member can challenge the Alpha for the status. Like the Shifters, someone like Bella Swan is able to mentally shield a whole pack of werewolves by focusing on their Alphas, with the protection cascading down through the ranks. It was intitally believed that because they have no Telepathic link, Children of the Moon do not make good pack members, however this is false, and a single pack of Werewolves are considered to be strong enough to take down a sized group of Newborns.
Code of Loyality Edit
Werewolves are very similar to Shape-shifters when it comes to their own kind. Unlike the vampires, werewolves are more sworn to loyalty and often bond with other werewolves they meet. They work with each other as sort of an extended family. The bond of loyality between werewolves is strangely long, while werewolves are entirely out of control, the only things they do not attack are other werewolves (triggered curse or not). This code does seem to extend to Eve Lydias' hybrids as well. It is possible that the only reason why Eve' hybrids show loyality to her, is because of their werewolf sides.
Classification of Werewolves Edit
Werewolf Society Edit
Werewolves are social creatures and mostly operate within packs. Primordial Werewolves form packs with their own unique hierarchical structure. Typically members of a pack are related by blood or have been bitten by other members of the pack:
Packs Edit Edit
Werewolves typically organize into packs. Packs are led by an Alpha and always have at least four other members, in order to be considered complete. Packs are generally bound by either blood or by bite -- members are related or have been bitten by the Alpha. This is not always the case, however, and Omegas can join a pack when they are not related. Some packs, on the other hand, are more like cults and are bound together by a common belief.
The Primordial werewolf race experiences its own internal bigotry, and this is often exemplified in the membership of packs. Some packs refuse to accept mutts into their midst.
- Alphas- are the leaders of a pack of werewolves. The strongest, most powerful, most dangerous, and by far the most lethal variety of the lycanthrope, Alphas are generally larger, faster, stronger, more powerful, and more animal then Omegas, Betas, and even Pure-Breeds in every sense of the words. When in canine form they are noticeably bigger. An Alpha is stronger with or without pack. if an Alpha kills another werewolf member of his own Pack, the power of the deceased will be added to that of the Alpha's. They will "become stronger, faster, more powerful". Three lead Alphas Deucalion, Kali and Ennis carried out this capability. They murdered each and every member of their own individual Packs, subsuming all their power. Subsequently they formed the basis of the dastardly and dreaded Alpha Pack.In Currents, Kali and the twins forcedly had Derek kill Boyd by his hand. As Boyd dies, Derek's eyes glow a much brighter Alpha red as he absorbs Boyd's power.. Alphas also possess a variety of special powers and abilities that other werewolves don't possess, including the ability to control their wolf forms, abilities and tendencies very well (even on a full moon when they also have more control), empathy abilities that have progressed to limited telepathy (the ability to hear the thoughts of others). Only an Alpha has the ability to change humans into werewolves. They also have glowing bright red eyes. A Purebreed, Beta, and/or even an Omega werewolf can and may become an Alpha in two ways: 1. Either by defeating and killing another alpha, hence stealing or taking that power -- if an Alpha is not killed by a werewolf -- by being the next strongest member of the pack. Or 2. By rising purely through strength of character, virtue, or the sheer force of their own will alone. These are called "True Alphas" and are very rare. In other rare cases, Alphas can literately turn into actual wolves, but in a larger appearance.
- True Alphas- l True Alphas are werewolves that gain Alpha Werewolf powers and statues based on its personality, rather than how Alphas kill and fight to become alphas or through the theft of another werewolf abilities. A Beta or Omega can become an Alpha through strength of character or their own force of will alone. These are called “True Alphas” and are very rare. True Alphas appear at an average rate of once a century. Like normal Primordial alphas, True Alphas have red glowing eyes, but however they are stronger.
- Beta Werewolf-A Beta Werewolf is the middle rank and species of werewolves. They are the second most powerful and most common breed of werewolves. They are members of a pack and, because of this association, they are considered stronger than Omegas. They do seem to have any special abilities beyond those common in all werewolves.Whereas Omega Werewolves look more human than wolf and Alpha Werewolves are more wolf than they are human, Betas are literately in the middle of both. The Alphas are the leaders and the omegas are the outcasts, but the Betas are the members of the pack. They are the most common type of werewolf and they also have various colored eyes, but the most common color is bright shinning gold.Additionally, if a Supernatural Hunter is dealing with a Beta Werewolf, it is extremely likely that a pack is not too far away, including the Beta's Alpha. they are considered to be stronger than Omegas due to the support they have from the pack to back them up, as they are stronger in numbers. Betas are not as strong as Alphas, and typically follow the Alpha of their pack with unwavering loyalty. Betas share a mental link with their Alpha and/or with the werewolf who bit them. They possess all the listed abilities of a werewolf and do seem to have any special abilities beyond those mentioned above. Betas have various colored eyes, but the most notable and common golden.
- Omega Werewolf-An Omega Werewolf is the lowest-ranking werewolves in the lycanthrope. They are literately the "Lone wolves" with no pack, no Alpha, not even another werewolf. They are considered the strongest and skilled of all types of werewolf. Omega can also be a label for the lowest member of a pack, thus, it is also an insult. Their eyes are normally yellow or blue.Omegas are the bottom folk in the canine shapeshifter hierarchy. These canine shapeshifters have no position in a Pack, or no affiliation with an Alpha. Like Betas, their eyes glow blue or yellow.Omegas are generally the strongest on the power level, because they are not members of a Pack, of which members gradually receive symbiotic balance, power from each other.
Omegas can be the "lone wolf", one with no Pack. They could have been kicked out of their Pack, they could be the survivor of a Pack's destruction, or they could be alone by their own choice as stated by Gerard Argent.
an unnamed man appears who turns out to be a werewolf. He was homeless, exhibited schizophrenia, his control and maturity was poor. Upon being captured by the Argents, his behaviour was totally animalistic, and they learn he is an Omega. He is killed by Gerard Argent to declare war upon all werewolves of Beacon Hills.
At the start of Season 2, Scott McCall had fallen to Omega status because Peter Hale, his Alpha creator was killed. Subsequently, his control over his werewolf bloodlust on a following full moon in Shape-Shifted was fragile. Later, when becoming a Beta as part of Derek's Pack, he had an easier time in Party Guessed, though he later climbed back up to Beta status on his own terms.
When Peter was resurrected in Party Guessed, he was at Omega status, because his Alpha powers had been usurped by Derek - his power was immensely powerful. In his own words, he didn't needed a Pack so to regain Beta status and build his power back up again.
Also, similarly to the natural wolf, Omegas could also considered the lowest ranked member in a Pack but are not seen as, or accepted to be, Betas by the Alpha. This was the case twice with Ethan and Aiden. The twins were "the bitches" in an infamous Pack before they met Deucalion, and during Season 3B when Scott refused to see them as Betas of his Pack because of their murderous past and wrong doing as part of the Alpha Pack though allowed them to help with the Void Kitsune.
- A werewolf's status and power is also reflected by it's supernatural eye colour.
Werewolf Eye Color
In the universe there are three eye colors for werewolves: gold, bright blue, and red.
Every werewolf, born or Bitten, starts out with gold eyes. After being Bitten by Peter, Scott's eyes as a Primordial werewolf were gold until he became an Alpha. Other Primordial werewolves with gold eyes include Isaac Lahey and Liam Dunbar, both of whom were also Bitten while Cora Hale was born.
A werewolf's eyes change from gold to blue after killing an innocent. Derek Hale's werewolf eyes changed from gold to blue when he gave his his girlfriend, Paige a mercy-killing. Peter and the twins have blue eyes from being supernatural serial killers. When Derek became an Alpha his eye color switches to Alpha red, but after he descends in Alpha Pact they change back to blue.
If a werewolf with blue eyes were to be losing their power, their werewolf status, their eyes will change back to gold as in Derek' case in 117.
A werewolf with red eyes is an Alpha. This is the easiest way to distinguish an Alpha. When a werewolf ascends to Alpha status, their eye color, gold or blue, will change to red. Derek's blue eyes changed to red after killing an Alpha, his uncle Peter. Scott McCall gains an Alpha's red eyes when he becomes a True Alpha. In Alpha Pact, we see that if a werewolf descends to Beta status, they lose the red eyes.
Werewolves are known to be aggressive, strong and fast, even in human form. Tyler Lockwood often had trouble controlling his temper, especially leading up to and during the full moon. Those with the werewolf curse still latent can exhibit some supernatural traits which can be triggered by aggression, along with unusual physical strength for the person's given size and age, but they cannot fully transform, and they also have a tendency to black out when they become overwhelmed in fits of rage. Werewolves seem to have a strong sense of duty and loyalty to protect their own, and feel a responsibility to help their fellow werewolves whenever they can. Also, werewolves have a higher body temperature than humans. When Tyler first activates his curse, he states that his skin feels as if it's on fire. Once a werewolf has triggered their gene, their eyes turn yellow (the eyes of a wolf) while enraged, as Mason's eyes did when he stopped the fight between Tyler and Carter(Brave New World), or when feeling threatened, such as when Hayley's eyes turned yellow while she was defending herself against a group of witches. Activating the curse is also painful, as werewolves have been seen to double over in pain before their eyes change for the first time. . It is known that humans can be turned into werewolf, and werewolf venom is nothing more than a deadly poison to animals. Shape-shifters and Vampires can't be turned, however much like animals, the venom acts as a deadly poison giving them a slow and very painful death if severe injuries are added. werewolf are feral, predatory creatures, far more savage and beast-like than their Vampire rivials. They growl, snarl, roar, and curl their lips back baring their teeth as signs of aggression. Even older "civilized" werewolves (ex. Alima) can break their human facade and show their animal instincts. When they sense danger, they go almost immediately look around for the presence, after which they bare their teeth and instantly attack with a feral roar and attack. When fighting transformed, werewolf go in for the kill and often times succeeding in doing so. Their bites can sever the limbs of their opponent ( Werewolf teeth are known to be able to severe vampires in half) as well as kill (biting their head off like a toothpick). Their grips can also snap limbs and is common for some werewolves who play with their prey. Despite their nature, they are also capable of human feelings, such as love, beauty, protection, compassion, caring, respect, self-control, empathy and remorse is enhanced.
☀Despite their nature, werewolves are also capable of human emotions, such as compassion, love, and self-control. However, it's in a werewolves nature to be violent, and no matter what their morality or kindness, they will always resort to such acts if it's necessary. While werewolves typically maintain their human personalities (though magnified by the magical properties of the lycanthrophy), they are usually dehumanized to some degree, and due to in-fighting within the werewolves community and tensions between vampires and the other human and supernatural communities, violence, tragedy, and death seem to follow werewolves wherever they go, even despite their best efforts to avoid it. Many werewolves are inherently selfish and consider other beings, particularly humans, to be inferior to themselves; even the most compassionate of their kind will often resort to cruelty and torture if it means protecting themselves and their loved ones from danger.
For example, Stefan Salvatore, despite his generally kind and compassionate attitude, has been shown to be unafraid of killing when the situation calls for it, though he does his best not to harm or kill humans unless absolutely necessary. Similarly, Caroline Forbes, while saving Stefan and his brother Damon from her mother and her police force, ended up slaughtering two of her deputies in an animalistic and stealthy manner and was completely calm and unfazed afterward, contrasting greatly with her reaction only weeks earlier after she had accidentally killed a carnival worker out of hunger just hours after she had completed her transition. Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson, over the course of their immortal years, have become dehumanized after living so long as powerful werewolves despite their kind and gentle nature, and though they have grown to prefer employing the "snatch, eat, erase" method of feeding and strive to avoid unnecessary large demonstrations of violence and cruelty, it is typically more out of their desire to protect themselves from exposure than a desire to not harm others. While both Rebekah and Elijah have mellowed out in recent years, both Mikaelsons have been known for being ruthless against their enemies and anyone who tries to harm their family, and have shown no discomfort in torturing others to get the answers or results they need.
However, werewolves experience sensations and feelings much more intensely than humans, and as a result, they have a much more difficult time controlling their emotions, all of which are tied to their hunger in some way. Whenever a werewolves is overwhelmed by powerful feelings (such as extreme hunger, anger, happiness, love etc.) their faces become pale, and blood rushes into the veins surrounding their eyes, darkening them tremendously. Their canine teeth will lengthen into fangs, giving them a more predatory look to scare off or threaten their prey and to aid them in feeding on humans and animals.
Due to their intensely emotional nature, it is not uncommon for werewolves wishing to maintain self-control to document their lives after their transition in journals. Though they have consistently shown considerable powers in recollection of specific memories and dates, werewolves still need to peruse their journals in order to reflect on their feelings during certain events. Another function of the werewolves nature is the ability to "turn off" their humanity in order to make it easier for them to emotionally deal with feeding on and occasionally even killing humans to maintain their immortality. werewolves who have used this coping mechanism, such as Damon and Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gilbert, have described the process as "flicking a switch," which essentially numbs their emotions and disables their ability to be empathetic, allowing them to shut out painful feelings such as guilt, grief, and sadness and turning off the part of them that makes them ashamed of their actions. werewolves with their humanity turned off often think of themselves as purely rational or logical and not being ruled by their emotions. They also have no problem feeding indiscriminately on whomever they please, either using compulsion to make the humans forget the experience or killing them outright with no shame.
Becoming the Beast Edit
Lycanthropy can be caught by being bitten by a werewolf (in werewolf form). and possibly through scratches too; the process is extremely predictable, and a victim of a Primordial werewolf attack will always survive a serious or even non-fatal attack infected. As long as the transformed werewolf draws blood from the victim with a infectious bite or scratch. Being born from two werewolf will create a Primordial werewolf child too. also One can become a werewolf by one of two known methods; being bitten or scratched by an Alpha werewolf such as Scott McCall and Isaac Lahey or being a werewolf by birth, having biological werewolf parents like Derek, Laura and Cora Hale. An Alpha werewolf's Bite is not always successful and some bitten humans reject the Bite and die from it rather than transform: this was the fate of Paige. In the case of Jackson Whittemore, because of his persona specifically the feeling that he lacks an identity, his body rejected the Bite and he became a mutation of the werewolf gene; the Kanima. If a banshee, like Lydia, is bitten, they will neither transform or die: they are immune, but after Derek killed him, Peter Hale, inexplicably, was able to remain alive through Lydia's hallucinations as a result of his Biting her. The Bite, if successful, not only transforms a human into a werewolf, but also cures previous medical conditions such as asthma, epilepsy, cancer and can even heal scars.
Like normal humans, werewolves can eat human food if they wish. However, because they turn into ferocious beasts during the full moon, they are carnivores. When in werewolf form, they can feed on human or vampire body parts and organs, but they are not required to ingest them in order to prolong their existence, like vampires must do with blood. There are no known consequences from abstaining from human or vampire flesh while in werewolf form. It seems that most werewolves do not get to feed on humanoid flesh, because most tend to lock themselves up during the full moon, or are scared or distracted away from their victim before they can eat them. Werewolves have not been seen to attack each other in human or lupine form, but have been known to hunt both human and vampire prey while transformed under the full moon. Jules, for example, was seen to be horrified when she woke up to find she'd slaughtered a group of campers after she had attacked Rose the previous evening. Unstable hybrids also have the urge to attack vampires regardless of what form they are in, as witnessed in The Hybrid when a werewolf, Ray Sutton, instinctively attacked the vampire Damon Salvatore instead of pursuing its first choice, Elena Gilbert. werewolves are flesh eating creatures instead of blood drinking creatures. When feeding, it is absorbed throughout the body, and it satiates their lupine urges and gives the werewolf a total control during its lunar transformations, but not necessary for life. The absence of devouring victims will result in them lacking all control mentally in werewolf form, inhibiting their ability to have control in which they achieve in when they feed, and ultimately resulting in them losing all sense of humanity and rationality in their transformed state. Despite lacking no bit of control in their werewolf form if they do not feed, a werewolf will 100% of the time devour prey. Some newborn werewolves attempt to lock themselves up during their transformations in order not to harm anyone, but either that night or shortly after they will eventually break out. Werewolves have and will attack humans, but instinct and centuries of rivalry have hardwired them to hunt their prey of choice: Vampires or Primordial vampires. This especially began after vampires drove werewolves almost to extinction. So, if a werewolf finds prey, whether it's a human, a vampire or a shape-shifter it will be mauled, ripped apart and devoured. To a werewolf, the taste of vampires varies on a massive basis. A transformed werewolf will most likely attack a vampire who has feed of humans instead of animals. just like vampires, werewolf can subsist. Human blood is by far the most common source and the most appealing, and subsequently the most difficult to resist.
As blood is the only component of a werewolf diet, failing to drink blood (whether human or animal) for an extended period of time will physically and mentally weaken a werewolf . The longer a werewolf abstains from blood, the more likely the werewolf will lose their rationality and mental faculties until they give into their thirst, because their throats are described to be in "burning pain", which will worsen the longer they do not drink blood. Although it still gives them nutrition, animal blood is less appealing to werewolf .
On occasion, the appeal of human blood can be so enticing that a "vegetarian" werewolf will lose control, especially if their self-control is weak. To a "vegetarian" werewolf , carnivores' blood is more appetizing than herbivores, though still not quite as good as humans.
On the moral grounds that all human life is precious, a very small proportion of werewolf in the universe receive their sustenance from animal blood, jokingly calling themselves vegetarians. The only examples known are the Cullen family and the Denali coven.
Werewolf Transformation/Phasing Edit Edit
A werewolf will only transform into a humanoid wolf like creature under a full moon. The first transformation is quite slow, and the person is subjected to at least five or six hours of intense, bone-breaking pain before the actual transformation. After the first transformation, the experience does not last nearly as long, but it is still painful and something many werewolves come to dread. During the transformation, the body of the person is twisted in an unnatural manner as bones reshape and shift to form a wolf’s skeleton, causing the person immense physical and psychological pain. Later, the werewolf grows excessive body hair and becomes feral. Their irises turn golden-yellow, their sclera turn black, and their teeth elongate into canines before they finally transform into their humanoid wolf shape. A werewolf returns to their human form after a few hours, sometimes sooner, sometimes later. After the first transformation, the werewolf will experience muscle aches. Older werewolves can control themselves to some extent on the night of the full moon, but many find it necessary to dose themselves with wolfs-bane to weaken them before they lock themselves up in chains to prevent hurting anyone while they're transformed. The werewolves have seemed to gain much more control over their actions in humanoid wolf form than typical werewolves, most likely as a result spending all of their time in humanoid wolf form while they were cursed.The transformation can happen at any time, and isn't dependent upon a full moon. In young werewolves, the change is involuntary, since they have not yet learned to control it. Phasing often occurs due to a loss of temper, and Paul is known to be the most volatile pack member, erupting into his wolf form at the slightest provocation. The effects of this sort of transformation is shown in the relationship between Jonathan and Emily, and the disfiguring injuries she suffered when he lost control near her.
Transformation or "phasing" is a sudden and violent process. The initial transformation seems to be triggered by anger, and Jake explains that his own phasing was staved off by his happiness with Bella: "I was like a time bomb. You know what set me off? I got back from that movie, and Billy said I looked weird. That was all, but I just snapped. And then I—I exploded. I almost ripped his face off—my own father!"Jonathan Grenn's transformation also supports this, as it "took him two weeks to calm down enough to change back." James's point of view explains the transformation back into human form: "I ignored him [Joe], closing my eyes and pulling myself together again. It felt like the air was trembling around me, shaking out from me in small waves. I lifted myself up on my hind legs, catching the moment just right so that I was fully upright as I shimmered down into my human self." (James Green,
James seems to find phasing between wolf and human form easier than most. "Even Jonathan couldn't have phased on the fly like that. He saw Phillp losing it, and it took him, what, half a second to attack? The boy's got gift." (Eric Lindsey. James later explains to Bella that this may be due to his ancestry: "It takes some practice to phase back and forth, but it's easier for me… because Emily Finland was my father's grandfather, and Chris Dorsey was my mother's grandfather."Phasing appears only when vampires are in the neighborhood and the tribe is in need of protection. James explains, "There's no exact age... it just builds and builds and then suddenly—" It appears to occur roughly when a boy reaches manhood, and is certainly accompanied by a sudden growth spurt lasting for about two months.
Only males were believed to be able to phase until the transformation of Dolorse Green, which surprised everyone, even though "she's a direct descendant [of the spirit chiefs], all right.The initial, most basic shifts in morphology for a Primordial werewolf are a change in eye colour, a lengthening of the claws, and an elongation of their fangs The most commonly seen werewolf shapeshift, as well as the most practical, is a near-human shape that includes all of the above features. Further transformations of this form consists of a widow's peak and heightened brow, an alteration of body or facial hair including sideburns on their cheeks, a lengthening and sharpening of their ears, as well as the ability to run using a combination of their hands and feet.
In the case of Kali, during her shapeshifting, her toenails manifested into claws. Most likely this was due to her frequent footwork, to supplement her martial arts' form of combat.
Ethan and Aiden, being hereditary fraternal twins, could merge their bodies into one overlarger shape, which resembled the near-human form, but was much more powerful.
As werewolves grow in experience or if they were to undergo an Evolution, they can develop the ability to shapeshift further. An Alpha werewolf is supplemented in this talent due to the spark of power that makes them an Alpha. Depending on their power and character, their transformation could manifest as either an animalistic wolf beast, or an bipedal wolfman.
Appearance Edit Edit
werewolves have 3 forms a bipedal wolf-man form,giant wolf form,humanoid wolf form when transformed. first is the bipedal wolf-man form and in this form a werewolf have change in eye colour, a lengthening of the claws, and an elongation of their fangs. The most seen Primordial werewolf shapeshift, as well as the most practical, is a near-human shape that includes all of the above features. Further transformations of this form consists of a widow's peak and heightened brow, an alteration of body or facial hair including sideburns on their cheeks, a lengthening and sharpening of their ears, as well as the ability to run using a combination of their hands and feet.
In the case of Kali, during her shapeshifting, her toenails manifested into claws. Most likely this was due to her frequent footwork, to supplement her martial arts' form of combat.
Ethan and Aiden, being hereditary fraternal twins, could merge their bodies into one overlarger shape, which resembled the near-human form, but was much more powerful.The Alpha Pack leader Deucalion, known as the Demon Wolf, could transform into a humanoid shape with dark blue-gray skin and more demonic than wolf-like features.
In Season 4, Scott McCall underwent an Evolution and gained addtional fangs. In Monstrous, when he was about to murder an assassin out of rage, Scott began to transform into a bigger, more bestial shape with black-gray skin and a darker Alpha red. When he spared the man's life, Scott reverted back to his normal form.second form is a giant wolf form and in this wolf form they have the usual appearance of a timber wolf but much much larger even more larger than normal werewolves. In wolf form they are taller than the average human and are quite similar to natural wolves, although unlike natural wolves, werewolves have glowing yellow or orange eyes, wicked fangs, and a much more feral and predatory appearance. They can also be distinguished from regular wolves by their displays of supernatural strength, blurred speed, and size which is comparable to fully grown humans. The fur color of wolf forms differs from one to the other (e.g., Tyler Lockwood's fur color is dark brown, Mason Lockwood's is white and grey, Jules' is light brown with a hint of white, and Hayley's is white and brown). Werewolves can appear the same as any other human the rest of the month, aside from their enhanced abilities of speed, strength, and healing.3rd form is a humanoid wolf like creature form and in this form A werewolf is humanoid in shape, with a single head, two elongated arms and two legs.
A werewolf, obviously, bears many similarities to the creature of it's namesake, the wolf. The head is very similar to a wolf's, with two huge glowing eyes, an extended snout, and triangular ears, thick fur covering the entire body, long legs and large paws with razor-sharp, curved claws which greatly increases its climbing and grabbing ability, while reducing the energy needed to perform these actions. Although werewolves often use their claws to slashing through things and slash their prey in half, they are quite capable of being used in gouging attacks and are often best-suited for holding onto an unfortunate victim while the larger and sharper canine teeth are used to kill.
A werewolf's bite is indeed very powerful, easily capable of breaking the thickest bones of any animal of any size comparable to cattle and below. The tooth pattern of the lycanthrope is similar to that of a wolf, with four very large canines, two on the upper jaw and two on the lower, with four incisors in between each. Behind them are the premolars which are used to tear flesh, and finally, the molars at the very back for chewing. The musculature of the head is presumably that of an enlarged dire wolf's, in that the structure and shape of the musculature is that of a wolf, but with the size and strength of an animal bred for fighting and killing.
The bone structure of the werewolf is massive and eerily proportional. These extreme changes reportedly cause intense pain during transformation as the bone structure of the original human body is literally broken, reshaped, and then fused together again to its final form. the beast's bones are heavy & solid, almost unbreakable, and the tendons connecting them have proven very difficult to sever, meaning that a werewolf's frame can survive blunt force trauma or cutting power of immense magnitude before breaking/severing. the musculature of the werewolf is lean and agile, but yet powerful. Accounts of lycanthropes flashing before their victim's eyes before they are torn to pieces carry testament to the lycanthropes powerful attacks and frightful mobility. Notable hypertrophy occurs in the transverse abdominal, obliques, and Dominus (trunk) quadriceps and hamstrings (thighs), gastrocnemius (calves), biceps, triceps, anterior and posterior deltoids (arms and shoulders), latissimus dorsi, trapezius muscle, and erector spinae (back) and pectorals (chest). These areas are massive, while other areas of musculature enjoy significant but not-so-obvious increases. The durability of the musculature is also greatly increased, as werewolf can exert themselves for extended periods of time without tiring and without injury (if the action being performed in and of itself does cause harm). If a werewolf sustains sufficient injury, it can enter a feral, berserker-like rage, abandoning any thought of fight or defense to take down that which caused it such pain.
A werewolf typically appears with white, black, brown, or grey fur of various shades. It is unknown if the colors change with age. Only one instance of a red werewolf is known, that being Deputy Heather Kerkonen, who was bitten by a fellow deputy, who'd been brought to a hospital due to a (then-unknown) werewolf attack.
The skin of the werewolf is very similar to a wolf's, being pale under the fur but extraordinarily resistant to damage; weapons made primarily for thrusting (such as spears and bayonets) with wolfs-bane, or high-caliber ammunition with wolfs-bane seem to be the only things that can reliably pierce a werewolf's hide. This is further increased if said object is made of wolfs-bane. The cause of this phenomenon with silver is not currently known.
Werewolves are kind and forgiving. They do not hesitate to help others in need. But they can be brutal to their enemies, the threat to mankind.they are very mature and they don't take revenge and love for weakness. Werewolves are continuously described as being cruel, sadistic, careless, paranoid, reckless, impulsive, short-tempered, aggressive, volatile, unpredictable, slightly unreasonable, narcissistic, manipulative, jealous, obsessive and competitive. Though Werewolves shows little to no regard for human life in general, some Werewolves feels guilt and remorse for most of their actions, they just does not show it. Despite their negative traits,and their not pure evil, their just sadistic. Unbeknownst to any, When he/her become a Werewolves, all these emotions were heightened and Werewolves' temper became worse than ever. After this, he or her shut off his/her humanity to any but their kind, killing any who crossed their path. Vengeful and power-hungry, he or her will stop at nothing to achieve his/her ends and remove those who stand in his or her way. However, some Werewolves does not believe that death is a punishment as seen when he denies Katherine death, instead keeping her alive so that she will suffer for having betrayed him. they will also place usefulness before pleasure and keeps people alive when it suits his/her needs. they has also shown a penchant for working with witches which was mentioned by Katherine in Know Thy Enemy. Werewolves also has a sense of honor and will not go back on his/her word although, Werewolves will always look for loopholes in the deals they makes.
Powers & Abilities Edit
Shapeshifting: A werewolf's transformation, or shifting, can come in any combination; eye colour, fangs, claws. A werewolf's shifts in morphology can be involuntarily triggered by strong emotions such as anger, fear or a rapid heart rate. With practice, werewolves can learn to control their shifts, even on the full moon as well as the order in which the shifts happen, whether it being only eyes, claws or fangs.
Advanced Shapeshifting: werewolves have the power to transform into full wolves. Currently, werewolves have this ability. Two members of the Hale Family and Theo. It appears this ability requires the werewolf to go through some sort of evolution for the werewolf to use the ability.
Godlike strength - Werewolves are extremely strong and they can kill there opponent with brute force. They can kill there own kind and gain additional power and become more powerful. Their strength increase the more angry they get and they lift 100 tons,crush metal,uproot tree's,shatter glass,break tables,rip human's and vampire to shred,punch concert and brick,catch fallen vending machine and overpower humans,normal werewolf/ vampires,hybrids,zombie,hunters,demons,some angels,humanoid robots,bionic humans,animals and their strength can only be matched by Tribrids and hybrids. Werewolves Can lift 100 tons as a newly changed Werewolves. Strength doubles every century(200, 400,800) and lowen CAN physically harm vampires. Werewolves possess supernatural strength that makes them far stronger than immortals, members of The Five and humans. For example, Tyler accidentally ripped the door off his locker and kicked a trash can several feet with ease right after he triggered his curse. There have been several occasions to suggest that untriggered Werewolves possess more strength than any average humans, which would indicate some form of enhanced strength even before the activation of their curse. However, Werewolves in their human form are way strong then a vampire, and have even been shown to be far stronger on several occasions. But they've also shown to be strong enough to at least defend themselves, such as when Mason punched Damon across the room, or when Hayley pinned Diego up against a wall. When they are in their wolf form, their powers amplify to a degree that excels that of the Original and non-original vampires, making them more powerful than Original and non-original vampires. In wolf form, a Werewolves can overpower and kill any non-original and original vampire with ease, an example of that being when Mason, in wolf form, tackled and overpowered Caroline, a new vampire at the time, or when Tyler was turning and overpowered Damon, a vampire over 170 years old, or even when Jules, while in wolf form, tackled and bit Rose, a 560 year old vampire. They can also defeat an Original vampire and This ability has been used to break necks and spines, ripping out internal organs and break and move heavy objects. Werewolves can also shatter windows and doors with even the smallest objects, such as anything from rolled-up newspapers and things as small as quarters, as Elijah threw a handful of quarters as a window and the window exploded. Another case is when Klaus threw a newspaper at Elena's window in her old house. Elijah also has even displayed his strength as compared to a non-original vampire when he decapitated a 500+ years old vampire, Trevor with a single chop or swing of his bare hand.
Godlike Speed - Werewolves are extremely fast and they have the ability to run Animalistic quickness and dodge spear,arrows,knives,bullets and they can chase after any human,vampire,demon,bionic human,hunter,animals,motorcycle,cars,trucks,olympic runners. outrun humans,animals,motorcycles,cars,trucks,bionic human,normal vampire,run 600 mph&when they run they become a blur and indivisible. they speed can be only matched by transcendent-vampire's.Werewolves are much faster than immortals, members of the Five and humans. They possess this ability both in and out of transformation with an animalistic quickness; Stevie was able to duck and dodge Damon right before jumping on his back. However, the power is faster at night than in the day, due to the moon's presence, and their speed increases greatly when the werewolf is transformed during the full moon. Mason was able to hunt down Caroline and Stefan in the woods easily while transformed, even despite their Werewolves-enhanced speed. all Werewolves are shown to become nearly a blur like their vampire enemies. In wolf form, however, while under the influence of the full moon, they can use their speed to swiftly chase down their choice of prey; even vampires, as their speed rivals that of any vampires or possibly even exceeds it - during the battle between Elijah and Marcel's army, the fleeing vampires were all caught by Werewolves who managed to appear in front of them and set up ambushes.Typically, when they accelerate, a distinct whooshing, vacuum-like sound can be heard. They become faster with age, although once a person has active their gene, they are automatically able to run much faster than any other animal or human. This speed allows many Werewolves to outrun explosions. Werewolves super-speed makes the user almost seem invisible to the point that they look like a blur. They can also travel with a passenger, usually by establishing contact first with the recipient(s) and then speeding away. Interestingly, human passengers seems to be unfazed by the speed in which the Werewolves runs, which, due to the air friction and turbulence alone, would have otherwise ripped mere mortals to shreds. This implies that Werewolves can also impart some sort of mystical protection to their passengers while utilizing this power. After Bonnie Bennett accidentally fell through a collapsed floor into the tomb below, Stefan was able to use this ability to jump down, find her and bring her back up to safety without any harm. Damon Salvatore has also used this power to take people from one place to another. Werewolves are known to be the fastest supernatural creatures on Earth.They are noted to have the ability stop any other species in it's tracks and cover long distances in seconds. This was demonstrated by Kol Mikaelson when he appeared instantly at Elena Gilbert's doorstep after he was previously shown being some distance away while walking by a wooded area. They are able to easily catch up to any species of creature, supernatural or not. They can use their super-speed during a fight to quickly throw blows which could easily finish off any one other than their own species and are easily able to intercept all other supernatural creatures.
Godlike Agility - Werewolves possess superhuman enhanced stamina, flexibility, reflexes, and agility. They can move, jump, climb, and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion. They can climb a mountain within seconds,jump off the tallest tree and land perfectly ,one Werewolves jumped so high to catch a airplane that was shooting at him,jump for a 12 story building and land of there two front legs,back flip off a huge truck,wall climb on a brick wall,jump over a another building to the next that was 5 feet away.have and possess amazing supernaturally superhuman agility. They have shown that they are very flexible and can move, jump very high off buildings without hurting themselves, climb up walls, and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion and perform amazing acrobatic and parkour feats. They can also leap to great heights and are nimble enough to scale sheer surfaces with amazing speed, vertically or horizontally, much like a spider. This ability would allow them to access places that would be otherwise impossible for a human to reach. They can jump with their super speed too further than any normal human, such as from roof top to roof top or building to building. One jumped up to the top of a Ferris wheel and jumped off Oracle’s Church. Henry did this when he and a Mia were dancing around the house and he jumped to the bannister at full speed. Even a new Werewolves is able to jump off a cliff. A number of Werewolves have showed this.A Werewolves body movements are uncannily flexible. Their agility is more advanced than humans, which allows them to rapidly respond to change by adapting to its initial stable configuration; They can make numerous gymnastic, or martial arts implements with little effort using a combination of strength, balance, reflexes and speed. They can even swing, flip, bend and twist themselves without failure due to their enhanced sense of balance and flexibility. Using their physical senses as allies, they can find motions at human speed too slow for them to miss.
In battle, Werewolves can swiftly dodge any attack without having to think how to move their bodies first. In general, only something that moves at Primordial Werewolves-speed can render a Werewolves unnoticed to the motion.
Part of this enhancement is based on the enhanced activity of their brains, which allows them to think and move much faster than humans.
Godlike Senses -Werewolves have extremely keen and sense.and they can see and smell ever thing around them when running and hear 6 miles away,hear heartbeats,smell disease on human,see in the total darkness,see ghost,smell gum/drugs/alcohol/blood on people,hear music in car on the highway,see threw dark windows,smell gunpowder from a mile away,hear highest pitch/lowest pitch sound.They can smell a drop of fresh blood from a mile away. When a Primordial Werewolves hunts, he uses his sense of smell to find prey and hearing to track its movements. Primordial Werewolves can smell objects several miles away in a good breeze. Smell is most intense to Primordial Werewolves, because one can smell the blood of his prey. By not breathing, they feel uncomfortable due to the lack of smell, though they can survive without it.
As they grow older and more disciplined, Primordial Werewolves can learn to smell differences between the scents of various humans' blood, as well as scents of other things (like fabrics - the unique scent of denim). The range of their senses can be increased (though only fractionally) through concentration. Primordial Werewolves mostly rely on smell to find their prey and take in the environment, which is partly why they find the lack of breathing uncomfortable. Werewolves can hear the any muted sounds. When Bella completed her transformation into a Werewolves, she listened to the sound of rap music until it slowly faded away. She then realized that it was coming from a car with its window rolled down on a freeway, miles away from where she was. When she went on her first hunt, Bella could hear the fluttering wings and heartbeats of small birds flying through the forest. She could also hear the scurrying noises of animals that were beneath the ground, as well as an army of ants on the ground. They also have an instinctive reaction to danger, usually from ill-willed Werewolves.They can hear sounds coming from several miles away, and even with their eyes closed, they can be sure that there are multiple people in a room thanks to their varied breathing patterns. They can hear the sound of a heartbeat, a pulse thudding in a vein, and words spoken too quietly or too fast for humans to detect.They can hear whispered conversations, even ones in far of buildings and on phones and Werewolves can turn their enhanced hearing off, which explains why they can occasionally miss auditory warnings (such as the footsteps of approaching enemies) when they're paying attention to other things. Werewolves can also smell blood from several meters away, and see in total darkness. These senses improve and grow stronger with age and experience. While running, a Primordial Werewolves can see and sense everything that is around them, allowing them to keep tabs of their surroundings and avoid hitting anything unnecessarily. A Werewolves vision is incomparable. Everything is much sharper, and more defined as a Primordial Werewolf, and their vision is unhindered by darkness. As a Werewolves, colors are much more vibrant. Humans are considered blind or mud-eyed in comparison. Bella described looking back at her human life as like looking through a thick, dark veil because of her new incredible vision. Their sense of sight exceeds by far that of a hawk: They can see any objects in microscopic detail, and can see into the invisible spectrum of light. Werewolves also have much better depth perception than humans.
Their enhanced vision allows them to see the smallest details, and extends into the ultraviolet region of the light spectrum. Bella describes her sight as being better than an eagle's. Werewolves find wearing glasses or contact lenses to be uncomfortable or irritating because they see the smallest imperfections such as very small scratches and optical aberrations imperceptible to humans. Despite being indestructible and hard-skinned, Werewolves can feel anything they touch, no matter the softness; such as fur, the coolness of wind, etc. They can feel the slightest changes of temperature around them, though they are not bothered by it. They can feel the heat radiating from a human several meters away. When their skins meet sunlight, they can also feel its warmth. Physical pain is implied when their bodies are being ripped apart by something with similar supernatural strength. Werewolves have a similarly enhanced sense of taste allowing them to taste flavors with much more depth and precision. They can taste the differences of particles in their atmosphere. They can also detect minute differences between similar flavors. Even as a newborn,Werewolves are able to taste if the human they are feeding on has recently ingested drugs or alcohol.
Invulnerability - Their extremely dense body tissue renders a Werewolf indestructible, capable of withstanding high-caliber bullets, sharp objects, extreme forces, asphyxiation, artillery shells, lasers, falls from great heights. Werewolves are also invulnerable to extreme temperatures (both hot and cold). In addition, Werewolves are immune to all earthly diseases, bacteria and viruses. Some of the few things that actually can harm Werewolves is wolfs-bane,fire,mountain ash and other werewolves (who can generate enough force to break through a Werewolves invulnerability).In addition, Werewolves are capable of breathing underwater and can even survive without an atmosphere, in outer space. Because of this, Werewolves are resistant to all forms of physical damage. Their enhanced durability allows them to exert much harder attacks when in battle (without them having to worry about injuring themselves in the process), with such attacks having the force to break the sound barrier and generate shock-waves in-between their bodies and what they come in physical contact with while exerting blows of tremendous force. Edit
Heat Vision - Allows a Werewolf to fire 2 thick laser-like beams of intensified heat, in the form of heat irradiated space or fiery like beams, at a target by looking at it with the conscious act of activating this power or by triggering it with certain emotion, willpower, or thought, such things being intense frustration or anger, or the will to act or fight. Werewolves are able to generate these from both eyes, while the energy itself originates from the nerves behind the eyes, causing the soft tissue near the eye to glow bright orange with the nerves generating great amounts of heat energy. It also seems to distort pressure around the eye, as the tissue around the eye has veins that turn black and protrude from the face. Their heat vision is strong enough to quickly melt steel, titanium, and other metals, even more durable alien metals with ease, with the intensity of molten rock.This Ability to emit solar energy from his eyes. This usually resembles bright red or orange laser-like beams, which may be visible at low temperatures but extremely bright at high ones. The effective range of his beams are hundreds of feet. It can also reach hundreds of miles wide, instantly disintegrating any person. In addition to varying the beam width, height, and intensity, Superman has demonstrated a high degree of skill and accuracy in manipulating his beam, being able to use this power with surgical precision and at microscopic levels. Superman can lobotomize or excise someone's psionic powers as shown in The Elite when he cut off Manchester Black's powers. Since the power can be used invisibly, Superman often takes advantage of that to perform tasks subtly without needing to get into costume. these beams can also be used to rapidly expand air or other matter to produce great concussive force. The beams are tremendously powerful, and can be used to rupture steel plates and pulverize rock. Also it can be reflected like a true laser, able to use great skill and accuracy in manipulating the blasts off multiple targets in rapid succession, or more mundanely to remove his very durable facial hair. Sometimes shown to be one of his more physically draining powers to use, as it uses such concentrated solar energy. In the Pre-Crisis stories, Clark wears glasses with lenses made of Kryptonian glass (initially salvaged from his rocket ship's transparency dome) so he can fire his heat vision through them without damaging them. In the stories from the 1986 relaunch onward, Clark wears glasses with regular lenses, which force Clark to momentarily lift them out of his eyes' firing arc to use his heat vision effectively. In revision in Superman: Secret Origin, Clark wears glasses with Kryptonian glass that are intended to contain unwanted firings. Heat vision was initially introduced as "the heat of his x-ray vision" (a byproduct of his existing x-ray vision powers) in Superman(vol. 1) #59 (July 1949); heat vision as a separate power first appeared in Action Comics #275 (April 1961). In Superman #38, part of The New 52, it is revealed that Superman's heat vision is a precursor to a power called "super flare". This power utilizes all the solar energy stored within Superman's cells, allowing him to resort to an all-out attack. Edit
Solar battery: When a Werewolf is exposed to the rays of a yellow sun, the cells of his body store solar energy as a battery, enabling him to develop skills beyond description. Without the sun, Werewolf would not have superhuman abilities. A depowered Werewolf can regenerate his/her abilities if he/she get close to the Sun. These abilities seem to be relatively easy to master, or at least most of them, as some do take time and great effort (such as heat vision or arctic breath). Most Werewolf that have made it to Earth were aware of these powers and even for those who were not aware, such as Jor-El, who quickly adapted to his powers when he was forced to use them to save Louise McCallum fromLachlan Luthor, and Dax-Ur, who later learned of his abilities, saying: "It is Sunshine State had that effect on me." The more solar energy a Werewolf absorbs, the more powerful he becomes. Werewolf powers rely on their cells' ability to absorb and metabolize solar energy from yellow stars like Earth's sun.their Werewolf body is a living "solar battery" that absorbs solar energies and converts them to fuel for their powers. their cells also store yellow sun energy so They can use his powers under objects, at night, in dark places, and in space.
a Werewolf is shown, to possess remarkable recuperative powers that allow them to quickly heal from wounds and makes them immune to all forms of human or Earthly diseases, illnesses, viruses and toxins. Werewolf heals faster when they are closer to the sun and absorbing more solar rays.
yellow stars were said to emit "ultra solar rays" which enabled Werewolf' superpowers; penetrating the Earth itself, said rays also enabled Werewolf to stay super-powered at night. it is the overall high intensity of yellow solar radiation, versus the far weaker red solar radiation of Werewolf's sun, that is shown as causing Werewolf superpowers. The more yellow sun rays a Primordial Werewolf absorbs the stronger they gets; in some instances l Werewolf has been shown to enter the sun in order to increase their powers to their highest potentials. Werewolf can also absorb solar energies of other class stars such as white stars and also when Werewolf absorbed the solar energies of a blue star that increased their abilities to a higher degree and gave them additional abilities. The light of dwarf stars, pulsars, and quasars also grants Werewolf different abilities. However, they can gain enhanced abilities from the energy of red stars; various reasons have been given for this. When Superman visited Olympus, where he and Apollo got into a fight, Apollo struck Superman with a sun beam, making Superman stronger and feeling like he "drank a bucket of adrenaline."
Flight - Allows a Werewolf to maneuver precisely in any direction, as well as hover, and travel against the force of gravity. Werewolf can defy gravity through gravitational manipulation, shown first by Kal-El, with bits of snow and gravel being in a gravitational pull around him before he took off. Gravity is manipulated around the Werewolf that uses it, while other objects levitate around them due to a higher gravitational pull generated by the Werewolf. The ground can shake, as if a tremor is present, due to the Werewolf manipulating gravity and siphoning physical force. Utilizing gravity, kinetic energy, and other forces, a Werewolf can reach tremendous supersonic speeds when flying.
Telescopic Vision - Allows a Werewolf to clearly see things over vast distances. For instance, when Kal-El first saw Black Zero hovering over Smallville, he was able to zoom in and perceive it in detail. He also used this ability (combined with his x-ray vision) to see Lois in the capsule, as it was hurtling to Earth, and saw Lois amongst all the debris as she was caught in the raging vacuum when the Phantom energy singularity was opened.
Werewolf has ability to know anything that one chooses to know and can be known. actually knowing everything that can be known. Edit Edit
The Werewolf mind is unblocked to the entire universe; they know every answer to every question, past, present, and future. the Werewolf have all information at all times as some knowledge may be spontaneous while some may require the action of others.
By knowing something, Werewolf can also understand every counter available for that certain something, thus being unable to be defeated by said subject.
Werewolf is often shown to have flawless, eidetic Memory of everything They have ever seen, read, heard, or otherwise experienced. Werewolf is capable of multilingualism and is able to learn, speak and understand any language they comes in contact with. possesses intellect that surpasses genius-level. People from Krypton already had genius-level intellect, being a society thousands of years ahead of Earth in technology. In the presence of a yellow sun, Werewolf intelligence is further enhanced, literally to super-humanoid levels, giving them super intelligence and allowing their brain to operate faster than a supercomputer. so the capacity to know everything that there is to be known.

Immune to Witch Spells and Curses: Werewolves are invulnerable to, thus, they are more immune to Spells and Curses.
Empathy: Being that werewolves' senses are so strong, they developed the ability to sense other's emotions through touch. With time this power grows stronger, this is used to sense a person's true intentions and if they are lying or not. At first this ability can be very annoying and hard to control, sensing everyone's emotions without meaning to. This ability can also be developed enough to absorb pain from someone.
Pain Transference: Werewolves can absorb and alleviate pain from other people/creatures and can "heal" in some cases. Alphas can heal the extremely ill with their pain transference ability.
Strong Fangs, Teeth & Claws: In wolf form, a Primordial werewolf's greatest weapons are its sharp teeth and sharp claws which can cut through steel. Primordial Werewolves have powerful teeth claws; able to cut solid walls, and are nearly as strong as steel and regrow in minutes. Their fangs can tear off and eat human flesh and can rip out a human heart right out of their chest cavity. The Primordial werewolf's claws and teeth are extremely sharp and tough, enabling them to rend through a variety of substances including fabric, wood, cinder block,allows them to bite any creatures. and even some metals. Primordial Werewolves can also use their claws to crawl along walls at great speed in pursuit of prey.their teeth is immensely strong and serves as their primary weapon and way to eat. Their teeth can rip open almost anything they bite into, including humans, angels, demons and various other creatures - even other Turok-Hans. experience emotions more powerfully than humans and non-original vampires.
Enhanced Emotions:Particularly emotions such as anger, rage, aggression and violence due to their werewolf heritage. werewolf are more prone to violence and rage than non-original vampires. However, emotions such as love, joy, and happiness are intensified for them as well, allowing them to live life more intensely. This ability allows them to feel emotions at their peak regardless of their age.
Lycanthrope Enhancement: l werewolf are capable of using their werewolf features to further supplement their powers and abilities. werewolf can grow claws from their nails and werewolf fangs from their teeth even when they are still in their human forms. When Klaus was in Tyler's body, it was shown that a werewolf claws are sharp enough to penetrate a werewolf-vampire hybrid's very durable skin. Also werewolf can display werewolf fangs. Their eyes also change into those of their werewolf form, presumably granting them better eyesight. Due to their werewolf heritage, a werewolf strength and speed are heightened further during a full moon and at its peak in their werewolf forms.
Werewolf Bite Cure: werewolf blood is the only cure for a werewolf or a werewolf-vampire hybrid venom, this ability seems to be unique only to werewolf as no other werewolf-vampire hybrid has been seen or mentioned using it, it can be assumed that Klaus' daughter Hope, has this ability due to her being a unique hybrid.
Mind Melding: Werewolves can meld their minds with those of other beings by inserting their claws into the recipients at the base of their skull. This power is used exclusively by Alphas, or more experienced werewolves as it is a dangerous act to perform. If not performed properly, the ritual could kill the recipient.
Hunting Style Skills: Werewolves hunt like actual wolves does to take down prey. They can hunt very well alone or in pack. In pack shows that one will distract the prey and the other ones will ambush. Werewolves can hunt any humans, animals, or even vampires.
Shapeshifting/Transformation Control: Werewolves have the ability to transform into their werewolf forms at will. Most of them avoid transforming at all due to the pain it causes. They have complete awareness, but they still, however, have no control of their actions in werewolf form. They can also perform partial transformations, manifesting single features of their werewolf forms. Elijah informs Klaus that he remained a werewolf for two days, even when the sun was up. Showing that a Werewolves can stay in werewolf form longer.As seen with Klaus when he bit Katherine,a Werewolves can transform partially, displaying their werewolf eyes and teeth.
Jumping Skills: Werewolves shown to jump well to go in the air to attack their enemy's.
Full Moon: Werewolves powers and abilities are enhanced and are at their peak during a full moon.
Wolf Form/Shape-Shifting: During the full moon, Werewolves can and will unwillingly transform/shape-shift from their human form and into their wolf or wolf-like creature forms, sometimes to a half-human, half-wolf beast form,under a full moon, they can also change during a solar eclipse albeit partially. It is implied that Primordial werewolves are able to transform into "real" wolves as well. However, if a female werewolf is pregnant, they will not turn for nine months as the transformation would kill the baby. There are ways to induce this trait outside of the Moon's influence, though. Such ways would be to become a Hybrid, and through the possession of a Moonlight Ring. These two are so far the only known methods of voluntarily controlling a Werewolf's transformed state. However, some werewolves change not only under a full moon, but under half-moons. werewolves can shape shift at will and transform anytime they want, however, they somewhat lose control whenever they feed on human hearts.
Infectious Werewolf Bite Venom: Through a bite, a werewolf can turn another person into a werewolf while in beast form. Their fangs and claws produce venom which can turn humans into werewolves by biting or scratching them. A Werewolf's bite and poison, which involves injecting a toxic venom into the wound, is extremely lethal and fatal to normal Vampires . While an Alpha Elder and Dracula can die from the bites, they are not wholly immune to the effects of the bite, as they still will experience the sickness and hallucination that accompanies it until their body heals. For vampires, the bite wound will begin to appear infected and will hurt when touched. It will cause them to hallucinate, grow severely weak and go rabid until it kills them. The infection will spread throughout the body, producing unbearable pain and the vampire bitten will have uncontrollable hunger, and will eventually develop delusions, hallucinations of moments from their past, rabid rage, and dementia before finally dying. A bite from a werewolf as the venom in the saliva will neutralize the vampire venom in their blood causing them to die and deteriorate.
Vampire-Toxic Blood: Their blood is toxic to vampires, which will cause severe bleeding and seizures when ingested, but it is not fatal in small doses. It does, however, remain in the vampire's system, for an unknown amount of time, and makes it impossible for them to create new vampires without their potential progeny developing horrible mutations.
- Disease Immunity: Werewolves possess an innate wellness and immunity to all diseases.
- Enhanced Heightened Super Wolf Senses: Werewolves gain a canus lupis like appearance, and so do their internal organs. Thus, Werewolves have the extremely keen, heightened, superhumanly, animal acute senses of smell, sight, taste, and hearing inherent in all canines similar to those of an actual wolf. Because they are supernatural and have powers that excel their wolf counterparts, they can hear, see, and smell better than that of regular canines. Even in human form, a Werewolf possesses enhanced wolf-like senses and instincts. They're able to sense and smell things normal humans can't. This trait is shared by their shifter counterparts.
- Sight: All werewolves are able to see far better than humans in darkness, similar to actual wolves, and they can also see all of the infrared spectrum and thus detect the heat signatures of objects or people in total darkness. Werewolves also have night vision since hunting at night very well.
- Smell: Additionally, they have a well-developed sense of smell, which also intensifies in the days before and a few hours after the full moon. Their smell is equally enhanced to their hearing. They can smell other living creatures within 100 feet (when upwind) and follow a scent over nearly any terrain. With this, experienced werewolves such as Jules could sniff out vampires—something vampires themselves are incapable of—and Tyler sensed vervain placed in coffee, which would otherwise be impossible since the flavor is usually hidden by the coffee.
- Hearing: A Werewolf's hearing and smell will be equivalent to a wolf's, making them excellent trackers when it comes to scents, and their hearing improves allowing them to hear sounds from miles away. They can hear the sound of a heartbeat in a cave at a distance of 30 feet.
This trait is shared by their shifter counterparts. Their senses can be even further enhanced with the use of V. Alphas also have the ability to hide their scent from other werewolves.
Retractable Fangs: Werewolves can retract their fangs, back and forth.
Pain Absorption/Siphon: By touch, a Primordial werewolf can absorb the pain of a human, animal, or supernatural creature.Werewolves are able to siphon off pain of another living creature through touch. They absorb the pain, alleviate it, causing them some discomfort, but on a level out of scale with the amount of pain dissipating from the recipient.It hurts the Primordial werewolf less than it hurts the person they're helping. Isaac seemed to feel pity and morsoe for a dying dog. Under Dr. Deaton's direction, Isaac was able to activate his pain siphon ability for the first time, to his heartfelt joy.In Ouroboros, Liam Dunbar attempted to use his pain siphon for the first time on Hayden Romero, but failed. Later when he and Hayden share a sweet moment, they kiss, and Liam's pain siphon works then. This indicates Primordial werewolves can't just think about taking the pain for an individual to activate it, they have to have a degree of empathy for the individuals they're helping.
- Mind Meld: Primordial Werewolves can meld their minds with those of others by inserting their claws into the recipients at the base of their skull. From one known instance, an Alpha has initiated this technique using his fangs instead.This talent allows for direct mind-to-mind communication. By utilizing this ritual, Primordial werewolves can initiate telepathy. They can tap into a recipient's memories or mentally enter the recipent's subconscious, share memories with, imprint their own memories upon a victim, or wipe memories from the recipient's mind.
Mind melding is used exclusively by the most experienced of shifters, or Alphas, as it is a dangerous act to perform. If not performed properly, the ritual could kill the recipient, paralyze them, or render them catatonic. If the process, the bond, was broken by an outsider, it could kill both the user and recipient.
When extracting memories from a victim's mind, the memories wiped are virtually stored inside the werewolf's claws as Peter's memory of his fathering Malia were locked inside the claws of his sister, Talia Hale.
In Magic Bullet, Derek Hale accidentally shared his memories of the Hale House withJackson Whittemore. Consequently, Jackson had nightmares of the house.
In Co-Captain, Peter Hale shared his memories of the Hale Fire and his coma with his werewolf progeny Scott McCall. Later in Formality, Peter, knowing that Lydia wouldn't die nor turn from the Bite because she was an innate banshee, imprinted memories of his own into her mind, using his fangs instead. Consequently, Lydia in Season 2, suffered from hallucinations of Peter; she fell under his control and possession, as she was his backup plan were he to die. Peter also, in Chaos Rising was able to partially extract the wiped memories of Isaac Lahey committed by the Alpha Pack.
In De-Void, Scott McCall performed this ritual with his claws in both Stiles and Lydia, and so he and Lydia were able to both enter Stiles' subconscious, with the intention of splitting Stiles from the Nogitsune. In Ouroboros, Scott tapped into Corey's memories in an attempt to find the Dread Doctors' lair.Masking MasteryRetractable Claws: Primordial werewolf can retract their claws, back and forth.
Weaknesses and Vulnerabilities Edit
- Wolfsbane: It has been shown that the effects of Wolfsbane can suppress a werewolf's heighten senses, but it also varies depending on the type, amount and delivery method. It can cause hallucinations, weaken, render unconscious or kill werewolves. When ingested, wolfsbane causes a werewolf to become severely weak and feverish. Also, if a werewolf's skin is exposed to wolfsbane, it will burn them.
- Mountain Ash: When used properly, Mountain Ash can form an impenetrable barrier to keep supernatural creatures in or out. It can also modify their behavior - keeping them from "causing trouble".Mountain Ash can control their mood and create an impenetrable shield, however True Alphas can break this shield.
- Lunar Eclipse Cycle:During the lunar eclipse, werewolves completely lose all their supernatural talents and abilities, simply rendering them to their human guise.
- Hecatolite: Hecatolite can block the effects of the moon and disrupt the natural cycle of transformation.Tranquilizers: It's been shown that even in wolf form, a werewolf can be affected by tranquilizers and rendered unconscious.
- Mistletoe: Mistletoe is poisonous to werewolves.
- Piercing Scream: Because of their heightened senses, a Banshee's scream, if loud enough, can hurt a werewolf.
- Camera Flash: A flash from a camera can make a werewolves eyes glow in the picture, causing exposure.
- Beheading/Decapitation: Dismembering, severing, or removing the head of a werewolf will result in instant and permanent death. If the head of a werewolf is severed completely, the Primordial werewolf will perish. Breaking the neck of a werewolf only causes mild discomfort. Beheading is by far the most commonly used and effective method of killing werewolves. Cutting off the head of a werewolf can and will kill any werewolf, no matter how old or how powerful the creature may be. This grisly practice originates from the belief that the werewolf is incapable of existing without its head , as it can regenerate these vital parts. Without its head, the werewolf is unable to wander about at night without the head to direct it. werewolf are not known to be killed by human effort, are unharmed by sunlight, garlic, holy water, silver, any kind of stake or cross, and can enter homes without permission. Also, any kind of human weapon, including bullets, bounces off of them without any pain or harm done. The only known way to kill a werewolf is to dismember his or her body and burn the remains before it can reconstruct itself. Thus their weakness is the strength of their own kind or something as strong, which cannot be copied by humans, and fire that consumes them. If a human were to succeed in lighting a werewolf on fire, the werewolf could simply take a quick high-speed bound to put it out. This is why it is necessary to rip a werewolf body to pieces before incinerating them into ashes, to prevent them from putting out the fire before it can do serious damage. werewolf could be destroyed by molten lava. A number of werewolf fell into the deep fissure made by Benjamin and never came out of it; they were likely consumed by magma. Otherwise werewolf are indestructible.
- Fire: Fire causes werewolf a great deal of pain and injury. If werewolf are consumed by fire for a prolonged period of time, prolonged exposure to fire will result in permanent death and then they will die. werewolf can, however, quickly heal from even the worst burns, if given time and blood. However, if a werewolf cannot take the time to heal from the burns, the werewolf will die.
- Desiccation: When werewolf go prolonged abstain periods and extended amounts of time without feeding from eating, their blood and skin begin to dry up and they begin to look like a mummy, as they will eventually desiccate and mummify. A lack of blood for a prolonged period of time will cause werewolf to weaken.
- Broken Neck: Breaking a werewolf neck will not kill it, but it will render it unconscious for few minutes. It was shown when Alaric snaps Stefan and Damon's neck they recover quickly.
- Dead Man's Blood: The use of blood from the recently deceased can also be used as a method to incapacitate werewolf briefly.
- Full Moon: During full moons, werewolves can lose control when they shift forcefully and hurt or even kill somebody.The full moon causes werewolves to want to transform, and to shapeshift more easily. A werewolf's abilities are at their strongest during a full moon.Born werewolves learn to control themselves on the new full moon more easily as it's part of their nature. Newly Bitten werewolves have a hard time controlling their transformations and animalistic bloodlust during their first full moons, making it a particularly dangerous time to be around people. With time, the new wolf can learn to control himself with practice and concentration on an anchor.Full moons are apparently also a source of power for werewolves. On the full moon in March, the Worm Moon, Peter Hale, in a ritual conducted by Lydia, came back to life.
Bloodlust: Fueled by anger, werewolves can enter a violent, animalistic state of bloodlust. They are unable to control their desire to kill and seem largely beyond rational thought. Scott is unable to remember anything from the fugue state.A werewolf's vision is shown to be red to indicate this state, and their field of vision fairly narrow and concentrated on movement.
