‘Werecreatures’ - Lycanthropes

What They are:
Shifters
Werecreatures are those afflicted with Lycanthrope: Making them able to turn into a half humanoid half animal creature. Werecreatures are more commonly known Lycan.
Many assume that there are only Werewovles when in fact there are many denominations; such as
Werebears, Werefox, Werecats (ie: From Lions to domestic cats) Weregator, Wereshark,
Werehawks (ie: Other birds) Weresnake, Werebat. Many more...
(Please ask the admin if you are not sure)
Typical Appearances:
All Were’s appear

Origins:
Descendants of Animal shifters. The lycanthropy virus is spread by a bite or scratch from someone infected with a certain strain. Each race ie: Were tiger, is infected with its own strain. Thus if one was scratched by a Weregator they would turn into one.

Powers/Abilities:
Werecreature’s have very limited powers. They are usually telepathic with their own kind.
They also have the attributes of the creature they are able to turn into.
Ie: Enhanced hearing, and sight, Speed, amphibious breathing, flight.

Limitations:
They never have elemental powers.

Specific Weaknesses:
Metallurgy – Affliction to metals
All are allergic to silver, it is lethal if it enters the bloodstream

Aging:
Werecreature’s/Lycanthropes age like humans and have a similar lifecycle.

Grouping:
It is known that Werewolves generally live in packs and maybe so for other creatures such as Werefox.
These pack or communal creatures tend to have a hieracy:
Doyen – Councillor, advisor to the Alpha.
Alpha – Leader of the pack
Proxy – Second in command
Beta – Anything from Councillor to warrior. Alpha position falls on Beta after death.
Deltas – Hunter gathers
Kappa – Those that have left the pack to live a solitary life, they remain loyal to the pack
Omega – Families, labourers. Women and children .
Whether or not the creature is communal or solitary depends on what they turn into, it all depends on instinct. Though there are a few that go against the grain as they are still sentient.

Hybrids:
Werecreature’s cannot be have offspring with other werecreature’s of a different race.
Ie: Werecat cross Werehawk.
Were’s also cannot breed with other species.
