Werewolves

A guide to everything werewolf
Werewolves are a group of supernaturals who have been around longer than almost all of the other supernaturals aside from witches. Against popular belief that werewolves were created to hunt down vampires, werewolves have existed for double the amount of time vampires have been around. There are sometimes legends heard around campfires of Original Werewolves, mystical creatures that are half man and half beast, large and unstoppable beings that were cursed eons ago. As time goes on, the story changes frequently and there aren’t many believers anymore.

Being a werewolf is a hereditary trait. It’s passed down from a parent to a child, although not everyone knows it is in their family. It remains dormant until it is activated. In order to become a werewolf, you must activate the curse. To activate the curse, you have to be responsible for the death of a human. Whether it was accidental or on purpose, that is the only way to become a werewolf unless bitten by an Original Werewolf. Original Werewolves have a supreme amount of control by now (you figure, once a month shifting, 12 times a year, 2000 years, that’s 24,000 shifts), so the odds of this are very, VERY unlikely and should ALWAYS be plotted out with someone who has an Original Werewolf first.

Once the curse is activated by killing a human being, the change in scent takes place within 24 hours. The earliest the curse can be activated is between 8-10 years old, after their bones fully mature and their itty bitty bodies are more likely to cope to handle it. They’re testy and edgy in personality and gradually gain more strength until the Full Moon. All werewolves shift on the Full Moon. This happens ONCE a month when the moon is at its apex and is fullest in the sky.

The first Full Moon is the absolute most painful. It lasts between 5-6 hours. The pain is crippling. Bones break slowly. Agony wrecks their body as their human form begins to take on that of a wolf. After 5 or 6 hours of miserable pain, sweating, crying, and torture, they finally turn into a wolf. Werewolves look like regular wolves, except they’re more brutish and just slightly larger. The first few shifts are so painful, new werewolves often blackout for it. They have absolutely no control over their werewolf selves. They are predators, not domesticated German Shepard’s. When they wake in the morning, they’re naked and without their clothes, usually in a place they don’t remember getting to. Werewolves are hunters by nature, so it’s no surprise if there is blood on them, even if they’re only hunting prey like deer or rabbits. Their preferred choice is higher up in the food chain, like vampires. They will naturally be lead to the ‘bigger game’. They WILL attack humans, but they’re hardwired to attack vampires.

The morning after shifting, they’re weak and exhausted from the night before. This is the moment in time when werewolves are at their weakest. They have minimal strength (like that of a human) for nearly the whole next day. Over time, this exhaustion lessens. But this happens over time, think like, after a year, not a few months. Being a werewolf is truly a curse. On the day of the Full Moon, they’re at their upmost strength. They’re stronger than nearly all vampires in strength and they’re edgy. They’re likely to snap, unless they’ve been a werewolf for a while.

After a few years of being a werewolf, the amount of time it takes to shift progressively decreases. After being a werewolf for a year, the amount of time decreases probably by about fifteen minutes. So instead of it taking 5 ish hours to transform, it’ll take 4 hours and 45 minutes. After two years, 4 and a half hours. After four years, it’s down to 4 hours. After five years, you’ll get to 3 hours and 45 minutes, etc. Subtract 15 minutes for every year. The minimum amount of time it takes for any regular werewolf to transform (excluding Original Werewolves) is an hour and a half. Werewolves can ONLY transform on a full moon. They will never truly be able to recall all of the details of their very painful transformations, although after about 6+ years of being a werewolf, they might get snippets of foggy memories here or there of what happened in the wolf's eyes. Very, very minimum.

They should take caution as to where they shift. They can’t shift in their apartment building because they will be screaming their head off in extreme pain for probably around four hours. Werewolves have immense strength, so locking themselves in a flimsy cage or behind a thin wooden door probably won’t prevent them from escaping. Keep in mind also that one of their parents have to have the gene, even if they’ve never killed someone before. It’s latent. And if one of their parents did activate it, they will be able to sense the change in their child. A werewolf who grows up with their birth parents might know they’re a werewolf because a parent will see the change in their child (if the parents knows). However, this isn’t always the case. Most usually.

Werewolves have a superb sense of smell. They can tell the difference between all species (except witches/warlocks, cause they smell like humans). However, just because someone smells funny, if they’ve never met a vampire before, they might not realize what it is they smell. They have to have that sense trained. Once it’s trained, they can tell one person from another. Their eyesight is better in the dark, more enhanced to details during the day. Hearing is enhanced as well. Nothing extremely ridiculous, but it’s just better. Werewolves die by heart extraction, neck snapping, and old age. When it becomes unbearable on their old bodies to shift, they die. They probably don’t make it beyond sixty years, when an elderly persons bones become more and more fragile. If a werewolf is severely wounded and bleeds out before they can heal, as when Stefan threw a stake into ones jugular, a werewolf can bleed out and die before fully healing.

Werewolf women CAN have babies. They STOP shifting all together when they become pregnant. When the baby is born, they shift the next Full Moon, even if that happens the next day. Werewolves can also detect lies. It’s unclear in the show how they do this, so I’ve said it’s like a tickle down my werewolve’s spine or something like the hair standing on edge. Instinct. If you have other ideas, go for it. But they only detect a lie if the person who is telling the lie KNOWS they are lying.

They live a normal lifespan. Unlike vampires, they are NOT immortal. They have a human lifespan that usually doesn’t surpass 60-70 years old. They don’t age slowly. They don’t stop aging. They are NOT immortal. The only way for a werewolf to stop aging is to turn into a hybrid. Hybrids are made by Niklaus and a guide can be found elsewhere. Werewolves run in packs sometimes, but not always. It’s very helpful to be surrounded by other werewolves though, because they can form bonds and protect one another, seeing as werewolves are now being hunted down for multiple reasons.

A werewolf’s bite to a vampire is LETHAL. After biting a regular vampire (if the werewolf doesn’t tear them apart), the vampire dies within 24-48 hours. With Non-Original vampires the infection will spread throughout the body, producing unbearable pain and the vampire bitten will have uncontrollable hunger, and will eventually develop delusions, hallucinations, rabid rage, and dementia before finally dying. A werewolf’s bite doesn’t kill an Original Vampire, but they are not wholly immune to a regular werewolf’s bite. An Original Werewolf bitten or infected with the bite will experience delusions, hallucinations, and dementia progressively over 24 hours, like a 24 hour flu and becoming feverish.


Werewolf Strengths
Credit to Vampire Diaries Wikipedia for list of strengths

Super Strength - Werewolves are much stronger than humans and they grow stronger over time, but to a lesser degree with their age compared to vampires. Even untriggered werewolves are pretty stronger than human beings in general. However, they are not as strong as a vampire whilst in human form, but during the full moon they are more powerful than Non-Original vampires. Rose, a 560 year-old-vampire was knocked down and over-powered by the fully transformed werewolf Jules. Another case was when Damon Salvatore, a 170 year-old-vampire, barely held off the transforming newborn werewolf, Tyler Lockwood. Transformed werewolves are also capable of tearing apart entire groups of witches.

Super Speed - Werewolves are much faster than humans. Some werewolves are shown to be just as fast as their vampire enemies, but others have not. In wolf form however, their speed rivals most vampires. Werewolves can use this ability in either Human or wolf form. They are not as fast as vampires whilst in human form, however, under the full moon and in their wolf form, Werewolves can use their speed in wolf form to swiftly chase down Vampires.

Super Agility - Werewolves possess superhuman agility. Even in human form, they can move, jump very high, climb, flip, and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion.

Super Durability - Werewolves can take far more trauma than Humans can without much discomfort or injury. They can also exert themselves without much tire.

Healing Factor - Werewolves possess superhuman regenerative abilities, meaning if ever injured, their bodies will heal near-instantaneously. Like vampires, werewolves can heal from the most grievous of injuries, even in human form, albeit rather slowly in comparison. Unlike vampires, when a werewolf’s neck is broken, they stay dead. But while they heal slower, they are harder to injury.

Super Senses - Werewolves have the extremely keen senses of smell, sight, taste, and hearing inherent in all canines. With this, experienced werewolves like Jules could sniff out vampires—something vampires themselves are incapable of—and Tyler sensed vervain placed in coffee, which would otherwise be impossible since the flavor is usually hidden by the coffee.

Werewolf Bite - The bite of a Werewolf is extremely lethal to normal Vampires but not to an Original. While an Original cannot die from the bites, they are not wholly immune to the effects of the bite. For Non-Original vampires, the infection will spread throughout the body, producing unbearable pain and the vampire bitten will have uncontrollable hunger, and will eventually develop delusions, hallucinations, rabid rage, and dementia before finally dying.

Anger - When a Werewolf is furious, their anger increase all their power and abilities for a short period of time, as well as can have an advantage over a vampire.

Lie Detection - Werewolves can detest when someone is lying to them. Full Moon - Werewolves powers and abilities are enhanced and are at their peak during a full moon. They only don't transform on a Full Moon when a female werewolf is pregnant and that lasts for nine months.

Lycanthrope Enhancement - Werewolves can show the color of their eyes when angry, but only for a short amount of time. This strengthens their abilities, allowing them to be able to defend themselves against vampires. Since they're not human, they obviously cannot be compelled by vampires after they've activated their curse.

Werewolf Weaknesses
Credit to Vampire Diaries Wikipedia for list of weaknesses

Broken Neck - By breaking a werewolf's neck, it results in instant death.

Wolfsbane - When ingested, wolfsbane causes a werewolf to become severely weak and feverish. Also, If a werewolf's skin is exposed to wolfsbane, it will result in burning them.

Gilbert Device - Invented by Jonathan Gilbert (Enchanted by Emily Bennett), the Device was a weapon designed to emit a high-frequency noise that could only be heard by vampires and werewolves.

Magic - Witches are able to curse and inflict supernaturals aneurysms that cause the blood vessels of werewolves to explode.

Heart Extraction - If a werewolf's heart is ripped out, it will cause instant death.

Blood Loss - If a werewolf is severely wounded and bleeds out before they can heal, as when Stefan threw a stake into ones jugular, the werewolf bled out and died before it could fully heal.

original werewolves

The Accardo story begins in Year 21 BC in Delphi, Greece. Erik Accardo was betrothed to Constance. As custom in that time, they were married young and started a family right away. The first to be born was Kori, followed by Tycho. Two handsome baby boys to carry on the Accardo name. Then to follow were two precious girls, Kallisto and Viviana. Finally, Nicolai was to be the youngest boy and Isidora the baby girl of the family.

Their family was large which wasn’t uncommon in that setting. The women belonged to the man in the family as well, as if they were property. Erik and Constance had a relatively normal marriage. Erik was not an abusive man, though he did have quite a nasty temper which would end up with broken household furniture or dishes. The Accardo family was also quite well off compared to other families because Erik was a soldier. Over the years he moved up in rank and became a highly regarded warrior. His family lived well and he took care of them.

When the time came for the children to become adults and to marry, Erik wanted to keep his family together and had the Accardo Estates built. They were homes built within the same area, all very close. Even then, they were a close family and tried to take care of one another. Erik steadily moved up in ranks and had a large group of men under his command. There were banquets and feasts he would often attend with his family. During one of these feasts, he met the Oracle of Delphi. She was a peculiar woman with a mystical aura about her.

During one of the parties, his temper flared and he got into a dispute with one of the Priests of the temple. It had to be broken up by soldiers and Erik left in a fury. Parties and feasts continued to be held but there were hard feelings between Erik and the Priest. Erik was known for his temper and how quickly he could take down his opponent, especially if it meant death. During one of the feasts to follow, he caught the Priest and the Oracle having a secret affair. They knew he knew but Erik didn’t mention a word until one of the following banquets when the Priest cornered him about what Erik walked in on.

There was a fight and Erik was going to go to the Head Priest and tell him of the affair. They fought and Erik killed the man, unaware that the Oracle was witnessing the entire dispute. She was not just an Oracle but a witch, a powerful witch whose bloodline that had been carried on for ages and would continue to. Erik’s weakness was not his life but rather the life of his family and since Erik had taken away her family, the Priest she loved, she would take away his.

The Oracle cursed the Accardo family, all of the children that were already birthed and his wife too. Every full moon they would turn, revealing them to be the monsters they truly were. The curse would make them immortal but they would have to live with their sins and their rage forever, forced to transform once a month against their will. Their bones would break, they would mend and in a month they would do it all over again. Since it started with death, so would their curses. They would all stay the age they were at the time the curse was placed forever and once they killed, their transformations would begin. Erik was the first, blood was already on his hands.

The curse would soon afflict the entire family and the Accardo’s had to leave their home in Greece after a few years. The curse was affecting the entire family, some of his children and even his wife had activated the curse. Once a month during the full moon, their home, Delphi was terrorized by the wolves that would come out. If they bit anyone and the person managed to survive, the next full moon they would turn against their will. From those people who were involuntarily turned through a bite, their descendants would carry the werewolf gene. If their descendants killed, it activated the gene and once a month, they would turn into a werewolf as well.

A thousand years had passed, their family migrated and moved often to keep their secret. They traveled to the New World in the early 900’s. Settling in Mystic Falls for a few years. A village was built around them and soon the Mikaelson family settled. They were terrified of the wolves that would terrorize them once a month. In order to ease the tension between the Natives (the Accardos and the werewolves that had settled around them) and the Settlers (Mikaelson’s, Petrova’s and other humans) there was a marriage to be arranged. The eldest son was to marry the eldest daughter. Kori and the Original Doppelganger were wedded.

The tension seemed to be eased for a while and the Original Doppelganger was with child soon after the wedding. Then during one of the full moons, one of the Mikaelson’s were killed as they were watching the werewolves roamed around during the full moon. It was an accident but the father, Mikael, raged. He wanted to strike back but he was no match for the wolves who could tear him from limb to limb.

Against the other witches in the village approval, his wife Esther went against nature and the witches and created the Original Vampires. Her children, Elijah, Ezra, Eden, Kol, Niklaus and Rebekah were all turned into the first vampires, along with her husband, Mikael. They were strong now, but lusted for blood. They were weak to the sun and the flowers that grew beneath the trees in their village. The wood of these trees could also kill them and so they burned them. Their lust for blood turned them into killers. When Niklaus killed, he activated the curse. Esther had had an affair with Erik Accardo, father of the Original Werewolves. Niklaus was Erik’s bastard child, his son by blood.

Niklaus transformed that full moon following his first kill and Mikael was infuriated with his wife and the family that had taken everything from him. First their freedom the nights of the full moon, then his youngest son Henrik’s life. Finding out about the affair sent him into a rage and in his fury he killed Erik, prepared to kill the rest of the family but the Accardo's fled, everyone in the village believed that in Mikael's fury he killed them all. During this same night, Esther was preparing the ritual that would seal Niklaus’s werewolf side because a hybrid was much too powerful for the world.

The Petrova blood was used to seal the curse, though she didn’t die during the ritual. Instead she was swept away into hiding by one of the Original Vampires, to keep her safe from Niklaus after his werewolf side was dormant. Niklaus would kill the Petrova for her involvement, for betraying his friendship by taking away his birthright and being both vampire and werewolf. When the curse on Niklaus was sealed, he killed his mother when he realized what she had done. Niklaus told Elijah and Rebekah that Mikael, who had vanished, had killed their mother for her adultery. They buried her body and the trio left what would now be called Mystic Falls.

The Accardo family raced away from their home of Mystic Falls together so they wouldn’t suffer the same fate as Erik. Since their father’s death had occurred, Kori Accardo, the eldest son, had to take control of the family. Women were still property and therefore they needed a male head. Their mother was breaking down and Kori drew the family together, trying to hold them together as their father had. Over the years to follow though, they broke apart. Each of them left, one by one until the family was no more. A few would run into one another over the centuries to come, some remained hidden from their family and stayed away for an entire millennia. Mikael still searched for them, eager to take his vengeance out on the entire family and so they couldn’t reveal themselves. With the danger now arising in Mystic Falls, slowly each of them have come back to their home in the New World.

Original Werewolves still transform at the full moon, by now the transformation only lasts a few minutes because over the years, the transformation takes less time the longer they've been changing. What separates them from other werewolves is:

- A bite from the wolf form of an Original Werewolf to a human will infect that human. The next full moon they will change into a werewolf and it will be passed onto their children and their children's children, etc. A bite from an Original Werewolf to an Original Vampire will kill the Original Vampire within 24 hours. A bite from an Original Werewolf to a vampire will kill the vampire within 12 hours.
- Original werewolves can transform at will for any length of time.
- Their wolf forms are huge. Think like This
- Immortal, but not invincible. It would take a powerful, old vampire to decapitate them or pull their heart out.
