Today We’ll be discussing the difference between Werewolves and Shape Shifters.
Shape shifters can change at will, however, strong bursts of emotion, or being overwhelmed by it can force the change. This is because animals are purely emotional and instinctual, more prone to follow impulses than to use higher logic and reasoning. To keep it short – when overwhelmed by emotion some people are more animal than human.
During teen years Shape Shifters tend to go through a phase of emotional bouts and have a hard time controlling the shift. As they grow and mature this will change.
Some groups of Shape Shifters have been known to form entire governments and societies hidden away from the world.
You can normally tell a werewolf from a wolf shifter. A werewolf is comparable to a rabid wolf on steroids in terms of ability and temperament. The Werewolf is larger, and it’s fur is shaggy and unkempt in comparison – as well as it’s teeth.
When the change hits one affected with the disease the affected becomes overcome with blood lust and tend to run about throughout the night killing and devouring whatever flesh it can find. In the morning – it remembers nothing but the pain.
The disease is usually passed from being bitten or blood transfusion by or from the affected. However, there are said to be other things that can bring it on – such as potions and spells. (If you believe in that kind of thing)
Just one more thing, before I wrap it up.
If you hear someone refer to these creatures as “Lycans” or “Animangi”, you know what to do. Save them – Dispel the ignorance.
‘Till next time.
