The legend of the werewolf grew off of a
story told about the gods of Greece:
A man would transform into a monestrous wolf under the influence of a full moon, and would morph into it’s original human self at dawn when the sun touched it’s furry flesh.
it’s prowling journey through the night as a werewolf, it would kill and
devour as many infants and corpses as it could.
The only way to cure a werewolf is to kill it with silver, such as bullets or arrow heads. Once killed, the wolf takes back human form and the person continues to live his/her life curse free.
One way to tell if someone is a werewolf is to look and see if they have a pentagram mark on their forehead or the palm of their hand.
Some believe this fictional legend is true, and some don’t. It can be believed by superstition, and discouraged to believe by religion. But either way, the legend lives, and has been told through generations, and shall continue to reach on through movies, story tellers and more.
