Halloween: Werewolf and the Wolfman
Are you a Lycanthrope? If so, you are a werewolf, or a wolfman (the terms are synonymous). A werewolf is a man who can transform from human form into a wolf, and back. Lycanthropy is the process of transformation from human form to a werewolf. While in the werewolf form, this creature allegedly retains its human intelligence.
Legends and tales of werewolves are present in European folklore. Legends date back thousands of years. In the Middle Ages, people accused of being a werewolf, were put on trial. During trials, evidence was scant, as the human form shows no signs of being a werewolf.
How to transform into a werewolf: Folklore speaks to a number of ways in which a human can transform into a werewolf. Stories and legends largely agree that the transformation occurs during a full moon. They include:
Transforming back to Human form: There are number of theories on how a werewolf transforms back into human form. They include:
The diet of a werewolf consists of human beings- live or corpses. But, don't worry. Werewolves only roam the earth at night during a full moon. During this time, just stay indoors!
Dodging the "Silver Bullet": The only way to kill a werewolf, is to shoot him with a silver bullet. If you do not have a silver bullet, a silver arrow will suffice. Also, if you injure a werewolf, the injury will show on the person, when he transforms back into human form.
