Blue Werewolves of Asena
Once in Northern China, around the 7th Century, a 10 year-old shepherd boy was caught in the crossfire of a terrible losing battle. Men were dying all around him and he became convinced that he too would die when an enemy soldier found him hiding in a marsh.
But the enemy soldier seeing that he was just a child, decided not to kill him and left him bleeding to death in the marsh. Some say the soldier cut off his arms and his legs. Not a lot better! The boy thought he was dead now for sure.
But when night fell, a blue moon rose and to the boy’s surprise, a blue wolf appeared. At first the boy was afraid because as a shepherd, part of his job was to keep the wolves away from the sheep.
The wolf told him her name was Asena. Asena took the boy to her cave and quickly realized the only way to save the boy was by biting him. So she did. The grateful boy-werewolf stayed with Asena until he was better and then he returned to visit her every full moon.
They had ten kids together, most of whom inherited the blue lycanthropy gene. Their children when on to be very successful leaders and rulers, including Genghis Khan.
