  1. I need to become a werewolf not for the reasons you may think. I’m not a delusional kid. I’m a man seeking revenge and need the ability to carry out said revenge in the most horrific manner possible. I traveled with an elite private military unit and have seen some things so I know you exist. Please help me destroy these men for what they’ve done.

    • I’m sorry. But the only way you can become a lycanthrope is by being born one. And the lycanthrope’s are usually peaceful creatures. We are very misunderstood. Humans have changed our stories to make them more amusing. and most of them are made up anyway. And if you do happen to become one ( there is a way but you’re not know that ) You should never abuse the privilege of becoming la lycan.

    • Try to set it as a life long path and do meditations with the wolf spirits. Try to assimilate. It takes years.

          • I don’t meditate… Meditation has never been a thing and never will. Whenever I try to meditate I don’t feel like gathering enough focus to accomplish anything, and after a meditation session I never felt like becoming closer to shift. To me, possible shifting triggers are extreme emotions and “letting the wolf out”, mostly prey drive. But not by any means meditation or connecting with wolf spirits.

            • What lululala is talking about is a way to bond with a wolf spirit/wolf totem. It’s a method used by shamans, medicine men, and tribsmen to gain the ability to shapeshift. What you’re saying is a method of activating or triggering a werewolf ability that’s already present natually. Let me know if I’m wrong.

    • I understand fully of how you want revenge, it’s a natural human trait to want to destroy and make others pay. However, it is a very complicated process to become a Lycanthrope, and only the highly elite and trusted are able to know that information. Lycanthropes are not ‘weapons of killing’ we’re peaceful creatures who just happened to get caught up in all the myths and fairy tales humans made. It is also highly against our code to kill or injure any humans or creatures unless it is absolute self defense.

  2. ….I was asked to check this out by a friend of mine. He is quite odd in his ways I know what he is and he says I am too. I don’t know what he thinks entirely I do wish to find out. At this point he is panicking because April 29 the next full moon is coming up. He has puts bars on the windows and got more locks for all the doors, he said that I need to stay inside after dark now. I listen to what he is saying and I hear alot of noise outside at night, I’ve only checked once because he yelled at me after. But it was a group of guys and there eyes looked different underneath the porch light and I swear they had hair everywhere like an sterotypical Italian. After that I made him explain and he said I smell like the others he’s found but at the same time different. I’ve been really good about processing everything but now I’m getting scared and more emotional. Smells are stronger and I can feel people coming closer to me without knowing who it is or looking. I can taste everything he’s put into the food he makes, I can see alot better then before even without my glasses. I don’t fully understand and he refuses to explain anymore and I really don’t want to get into a fight with him.

    • First of all, he his not a lycan and neither are you. First of all you don’t turn on a full moon. And The only way you can become a lycanthropeIs by being born one or another way, but you’re not allowed to know that. He’s probably just being weird or creepy and when you do turn you have full control. And if you really were one you’ll be able to turn since you were first born

      • I don’t know about everybody else but I would appreciate the opportunity to be something so majestic and make something more out of life than just be on this earth to pay taxes until my deathbed it would be nice and quite an adventure course when I hear lycan I think about underworld style now that’s a good look but either why it would be nice any wolves out there truly hehe enjoy it

    • By what you explain, it sounds more like a vampire thing to be honest. I mean yes we werewolves have nearly the same abilities but before transforming it is a much different process.

      Plus not all newborn vamps have that urge to feed.

  3. Need advice, my mother is a werewolf, my eyes turn yellow when I’m angry, and I need to know if I’ve inherited my mothers lycanthropy.

  4. For those of you who think everything everyone is saying is true, then you know nothing. A werewolf is the same as a lycan And we don’t change during a full moon. However there is no way to be turned except for one way, but you are not aloud to know that. The main way you can become a lycanthrope is by being born one. But each lycanthrope’s birthday happens to fall on a full moon. I Doubt that any of you are not lycanthrope’s and don’t know anything about them. First of all, we are peaceful misunderstood creatures. Except for a few rouges. And if your over 13 and haven’t turned, then you are not a lycanthrope. Feel free to message me.

    • Just so you know, not all weres shift when they turn 13, some shift later on in life, mostly when they’re 18. Half weres shift when they’re 18 or a little older and the first shift always occurs on the full moon and after they can shift at will, but it takes time to master it. The first shift takes about 10 minutes or less. And when we first shift, we are never in control. And after, we become bigger in size, harder in look and substance, we become faster, stronger, more agile, more flexible, we have better reflexes, endurance and senses and are voice may or may not deepen. Our fur coats are not dependent on our hair color, for example, I’m a larger black wolf with gold eyes and I’m an alpha. And I’m also something else, but cannot tell anyone and I can turn people by biting them and so can all wolves, their just to afraid to try.

      • You forgot about dormants which would be the children of someone who’s a quarter werewolf and/or possibly their descendants.
        They can have werewolf tendencies but won’t shift until it’s activated usually by getting bitten. The difference is that dormants already have some Ulfr DNA and thus survive being bitten better than normal humans.
        Other than that though it sounds like you know your stuff. Right down to the golden eyes. How did you become an Alpha? if you don’t mind my asking. Also does the name Fenris Ulf mean anything to you? I’m also a wolf and something else, or I was more something else right now though.

      • I’ve always felt this deep connection to wolves. I don’t know. I know that I’m different and maybe, who knows maybe I’m a werewolf and I just don’t know it. I’ve always had anger issues and I growl, get mad very easily. I’m very, very territorial over what’s mine. The list could go on for ages but either way, I’d love to become a werewolf

      • Ik this post is over a year old but im hoping you still see this, i could use some advice, i believe im a genetic werewolf, i first really started feeling this way when i was about 14, and over the years it hasnt gone away although i tried to just forget about it because some of the things that happeb make me feel crazy, but ive come to accept it i guess, but i havent turned, i can feel it like an itch that i chase all throughout my body, and ive come close to shifting but i feel that i am lacking guidence, ive tried meditating lately i feel a closer bond wijth the wolf, i can feel it coming although i have never had a mentor so i dont know what to expect, if you could help i would appreciate it greatly thanks.

        • I am having very strange dreams over and over again. I’m not sure what they mean but it’s kind of freaking me out. I am scared to sleep because of the dreams.

          • It’s the same 2 wolves and I don’t know who else I can talk to about this because my family thinks I am nuts.

        • Hmm, actually I may believe you on this one. If you are a Genetic Lycanthrope, it is mandatory you shift on your 13 birthday with the guidance of your pack-mates. However, if you haven’t shifted yet it can bring some dangerous consequences to you and your family, I recommend finding a nearby pack and asking for their assistance. Most likely then not they will bring you in, but don’t expect all fun and games. Being a Lycan is tough work.

      • Dearest darling friend, alphas don’t actually exist. That’s just a man-made (human-made? I don’t know) concept created after some asshole scientist yeeted a shit-ton of wolves into an area, and they adapted into a prison-like mindset.

  5. Hey lupa have you heard of a nephilitic gene and werewolf hybrid there able to channel the werewolf gene but not being one

  6. The other day my daughter and I were walking to the store and someone tried to cat call and pick us up I got so angry within 5 mins my pulse was racing , I just wanted to get home quickly is this a symptom I have others

  7. I was born a lycanthrope and I found my mate, who turned out to be the Alpha of his pack. My father had explained to me that I became his Luna once we…mated. We have mated and he has marked me as his mate. I’m not sure how, but I think I have another mate. Is this possible? Since I have found my true mate, could this other wolf, a Beta in the pack, just have been a possible mate? Our family’s histories go back to the English and French war, so I have my doubts. There is a rogue pack that has heard of me, since I was late coming into my lycan blood, and their Alpha wants me for himself… Also, are there any other lycans here that can use Magicka? I can “tame” a flame of any size and enter random people’s minds D’s, as well as feel what they do. The pack calls me the Seer, because I have dreams that are truly visions. Things yet to come…

    Am I a special type of lycan? Or can a lot of others do this too?

    Please let me know if you can do these things GS. These abilities worry me. I’m a target due to them.

    • Your abilities may have nothing to do with your lycanthropy. Humans have a surprising amount of potential with the supernatural, and it may just be a gift. As far as being a target, try to protect yourself. As I often say, “If you can see the world, the world can see you.” This is especially true for a seer. Be careful, and good luck!

    • Hmm It seems you possibly may be a bit like me, ever heard of a pack Seer? Or maybe visionary? Depending on what the pack calls it. Your symptoms look to be the same as I once had, and you shouldn’t fear them the slightest. Embrace your newfound power and use it for good.
      If you would like to talk more, you may PM me.

  8. I would like for someone to teach me everything if that’s possible been checking on the info of Clans and and their abilities then I believe I have a little bit each ability and I can’t remember if I shift or not but at night I do get really excited when the moon is out but if anyone can help me please

  9. Hello, Lycans.
    I go by Sparky and for a good reason.
    I am what they call a pyrokinesis. Meaning, I can manipulate fire. Cool right? Not even close.
    If I get mad, sad or even super happy, fire bursts out in random places, good thing I can put it out though :cool: I think its so cool that you peeps exist too :) maybe we could talk about things Like life and stuff? or not. it’s up to you. I am reaching out and expanding my abilities, so I can do things like flying, and fire pulsing.
    Best of wishes,

  10. (sorry if this is already posted. it says awaiting moderation every time I see it. so i fixed what I think was holding it back so i have reposted it fixed) I need help. I have no clue what I might be and I want to know what I am if I’m not just a human. I seem to be able to speak to and understand animals, But I have seen other things that.. lead me more to believe I might be a werewolf. for instance I have really bad insomnia, but when I do sleep (or so I think) I never dream, also I have tendency to growl or bark sometimes with my dog. I either don’t remember or haven’t gone through my first transformation so I am not sure. Thanks in advanced!

  11. I don’t think any actual werewolves come on this site. They might monitor it, to make sure their secrets stay a secret. Now a days people need proof. You can be a believer all you want but somewhere in the back of your head for proof. I believe, believe trust me but I’m also one of those that needs proof. But I truly don’t think any real wolves go on here or Wattpad. Like I said if anything they probably monitor everything that has to do with Werewolves. Still searching for a mate though

    • you may think what you like.
      but if you anger any real wolves on this sight then don’t blame us.
      i wont tell you if i am a wolf or not because you might be a human hunter and i don’t want to expose any wolves on this sight
      cause then someone might get hurt.
      that’s all i have to say.

      • By saying that I do believe you’re breaking our very first sacred law, but of course, you’d know that ;)
        And to set things straight, real Lycanthropes do monitor the site, but most of the information is rubbish humans messing around with their mind and imagination.

  12. So I feel like giving up. It’s getting harder to sleep now. All I see is his face when I close my eyes but now it’s getting to the point he is always on my mind and I don’t even know him lol smfh. I’m tired of searching for answers that never come. So if my better half is out there, I’m soooooo done searching. It’s time to permanently remove myself. I’ll find away to do it. I’ve been searching for years and I’m losing hope and I’m always full of hope and light but I feel my light dimming.

    • Lycanthropes are not doomed to hell after death, unlike the human beliefs, we are one with the land and when we die we go on to live with our ancestors in spirit.
      The evil ‘werewolf’ stereotype was just humans and their imagination.

  13. Ok… so I’m doubting I’ll get any real awsers becuase most likely everyone here is human but I need to know if I’m human or just a wierd mutant… when I swim my legs lock together and people say it looks like I have a tail… I do do magick though not a lot anymore … I’m not exspect ally gifted in magick but sometimes wierd things happen to me… also I get cravings for blood …. iv heard ppl tell me outright that I must be a mermaid or siren (I can sorta trance slow minded ppl with my singing) but I find it hard to believe I mean I feel human and my parents are human …. granted they never let me read any mythology (I find my own ways to research it becuase it interests me) but I mean… only really wierd thing ik that my relitives have are grey blue eyes… almost everyone ik that’s related to me has grey blue eyes … another thing ppl don’t seem to see my ‘tail’ unless I point it out or they are related to me…. honestly I’m probably just a human who is thinking to hard about this… sorry if none of that makes sense… just pm me if you know anything and this is all real so… yeah anyway thanks ig

  14. i still haven’t been dreaming. i hardly sleep at night. I now seem to sleep more often outside than in. i still dont know what i am…. i hope someone can help me figure out what i am or what is going on with me.

  15. Wow. This is so embarassing to read the other humans on here. :oops: I just needed to apologize for my kind. Carry on my newly discovered friends! I’ll add some humble knowledge I have personally and continue to learn daily as I love to do. I believe that we all have blood mixed from other beings into our families. I know I do. I also believe humans are good and bad and thus this follows suit to some degree in other beings as well. If I’m wrong please respectfully correct me as you see fit.

    Seeking revenge or change into a completely different being for emotional benefits that you need checked out by a professional, or “cause its cool looking like in the movies” did I really read some reference to the Underworld movies?! :roll: and basically any other egotisical reasoning for wanting to change the entirety of your being is shameful. Grow up.

    Please first learn to love yourself as you are, and as you are meant to be in the present…Maybe down the line its a completely different form of yourself- but forcing change, especially for selfish or childish impulsive reasons is not as easy as you’d think nor would you appreciate it as much once it actually happens. Because you are still yourself within at the end of the day. Get control of your mind and spirit.

    I wish you all the healing and hope you find your answers and peace soon. My apologies to all for ranting just I find it disrespectful to read some of the obviously ignorant comments. Thank you to our friends on here for sharing their experiences and knowledge as well. This forum is fascinating and insightful. I’ll admit, a bit confusing but it makes sense mostly when I intuitively read and contemplate it all from my own perspective and limited knowledge.

    • That third paragraph seems presumptuous. Seeking change is a vital part of life, and seeking to become that which you like is a noble goal. Now, someone may have the wrong reasons, but some may not.
      And becoming a werewolf doesn’t magically change who you are, just adds to it. Like learning an ability or disability, you grow and adapt to improve your life.
      With mind, body, and spirit, these are all subject to change. Though, changing one may not change another.
      I think it’s important to understand if at the end of the day you’re not better then you were yesterday, you have wasted a day. If you go year to year being the same, you have wasted those years. You can’t save time, you can’t store it for later. Each day you have 24 hours to spend, and they’re gone at the end no matter what. Remember to kaizen, and become the best person you can, even if that’s becoming a different subspecies.

  16. has anyone ever heard of the blood feud between werewolves and vampires?
    cause i have. and there is a guy whom i think is a vamp and he keeps talking about the time when the feud started then he glares at me like he is going to kill me.
    it unnerves me.
    i mean its not like I started the feud.
    he is a jerk.

    • My, My..
      I almost laughed there for a second…
      Here’s a piece of information a few of you humans could use.
      Lycanthropes are creatures of the land and moon, we’re a spiritual essence that helps keep these lands alive, and the water flowing, and the balance set.
      Vampires, however, are just a silly fairy tail humans have been telling for decades. Werewolves have always existed in plain site, however the understanding and belief is something you humans lack.
      If it’s anything I don’t like, It’s impostors.
      Its not shameful to be human, nor is it special to be a Lycanthrope, it just…Is.
      Its a balance and natural way of being that you have to accept.
