Do Werewolves Exist?

Throughout my life I’ve always wondered if they exist. I probably sound really dumb asking a question like this, but a few friends of mine claim that they are lycanthropes, or can turn into a wolf, saying it also runs through their blood.

My good friend wants to become one so she does spells, like some she found on the internet.

She wants to become one, but I’m not sure if it’s possible or if they even exist.

What are they exactly?

Thats an interesting question. I suppose what you might call werewolves do exist, many people actually believe they do turn into wolves and other animals and commit murders, cannibalism and so on. A very good book on the subject is Sabine Baring-Goulds Book Of Werewolves. He tells of the old legends and true accounts of people who thought they could turn into animals.

Hi Sora,

To become a werewolf, according to legend, you have to be bitten by another werewolf. There is no spell I know that can make this transformation.

Also, again, according to legend, when a person transforms into a werewolf they have no control of their human mind anymore, and become a beast. It’s not like they are represented on TV programs, going around saving the world .. they are more likely to return to their family home and kill their family, or friends, or anyone else that crosses their path.

So Please, tell your friend to find another hobby .. something that won’t hurt others unintentionally.

In the meantime, there is a disease called Lycanthropy which, as Gary mentions above, means that a person ‘believes’ they turn into a werewolf when the moon is full, but they actually don’t.

Love & Peace
