A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope, is a human with the ability to shapeshift into an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely, by being bitten by another werewolf, or after being placed under a curse. This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moon.
Werewolves have super-human strength and senses, far beyond those of both wolves or men but have a notable vulnerability they are only permanently damaged by magic or silver, and other damage is quickly healed.

The Vancouver Island Werewolf:
There is a large pack of native werewolves on Vancouver Island that can trace their ancestry back to one of the shyest and most elusive creatures on Vancouver Island – the Vancouver Island wolf (Canis lupus crassodon). This pack of werewolves usually stays far from human activity. They are most common on the northern portions of the island, and as well within Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds, where most of their human contact takes place.
This native pack of werewolves attempts to stay away from human contact and prey mainly on black-tailed deer and Roosevelt elk. Taking smaller game, such as squirrels, rodents, and beaver, when the larger prey are scarce. Due to their remote location attacks on human happen very rarely.
There are four subspecies of the Vancouver Island Werewolf:
- Fledgling Werewolf
- Greater Werewolf
