Werewolves are Real!
They go by many names. Werewolves, or sometimes just weres. Lycanthropes, Therianthropes, Otherkin. They are people who believe that either biologically or perhaps spiritually they are something other than human, something somewhere between a human and an animal.
Stories of people turning into wolves and other animals have been around for millennia. Perhaps the oldest of these stories is that of the Greek king Lycaon. According to legend Lycaon was turned into a wolf for eating human flesh. Other stories say that he was turned into a wolf after sacrificing a child to Zeus atop Mount Lycaeus. Every year afterward those who would sacrifice to Zeus on Mount Lycaeus would also be turned into such a werewolf.
