Genetic vs. Bitten

Although there are many kinds of werewolves and every werewolf is unique there are two main types of werewolves. Now I know that you are saying, “not everything can be dividing into two groups” to which I reply, there are two kinds of people in the world, those who think everything can be divided into two groups and those who don’t, but in this case it really is true and one of the most important ways that werewolves are classified is by how they became werewolves.

Did you get bitten by a werewolf or did you inherit the lycanthropy gene from one or both of your parents?

Bitten Werewolves

The basic premise of what a bitten werewolf actually is pretty easy to follow.

If you are bitten by a werewolf on the full moon then you will turn into a werewolf on the next full moon and then be forced to transform every lunar cycle for the rest of your life.

Bitten werewolves generally have a much more difficult time controlling their transformations than genetic werewolves do. Both resisting transforming during the full moon as well as attempting to transform at times when the moon is not full are very challenging things and most bitten werewolves spend years trying to master these abilities.

Genetic Werewolves

Genetic werewolves are a bit more complex and often harder to identify. The werewolf gene sometimes skips a generation or two so even if neither of your parents is an actual werewolf at least one of them carries a recessive gene that has been passed down your bloodline, possibly for centuries or even millennia.

Genetic werewolves generally have an easier time resisting transforming when the moon is full as well as an easier time initiating a transformation at other times. In spite of the easier time that genetic werewolves have controlling their transformations when they do transform their transformations are just as painful as their bitten werewolf cousins.

  1. When the full moon comes out, I’m gonna be at my house and I don’t want to wolf out right in front of my mom. WHAT DO I DO??!! And is their any online packs I can join? Thanks.

  2. i dont know how i became a wolf both of my parents are human i come from different parts of the world my moms from ireland and kentucky those type of decendents and my father is from spain and france so i dont know which side it would come from anyways im pregnant and im not sure how to handle it along with being a wolf i have no one to talk to :sad:

  3. I don’t know if I am wolf or not. It seems as though something keeps dragging me to my window every “hunting” moon. I always stay up at night, not wanting sleep to come. I am afraid that I may just be insane, or that I really am a werewolf.

  4. I don’t know if I really am what I think I am, I can easily see my veins, I love looking at the moon, I love watching werewolf and wolf stuff, I hate Twilight, I don’t have any interest in vampires like I did when I was younger, I like my room messy even though I’m a Virgo(a type of personality thing), I like my hair messy, but when I brush it, I keep it nice,I love any kind of animal,dangerous or not, I hate it when wolves are killed, I can stand like a wolf on my hands and knees,I can growl, and when I yawn, I yawn a little like a canine ( a wolf,dog,coyote, etc.), I don’t LOVE cats, but I don’t HATE them, and I have a habit of cussing when not in the presence of my mom or an adult,overly protective, when I was younger, I bit my mom because I thought for some reason my mom was going to hurt my dog who was in my arms,I don’t sleep anymore in my room, but I will sleep anywhere else…

      • It was a name I have for a nickname from my dreams, I didn’t create the silver-haired wolfgirl while my friend didn’t create Sparkle the brown-haired green and purple-eyed wolfgirl, Silvia is a goddess who is an angel and demon and has a human form which is a brown-haired girl with dark blue eyes,she is beautiful as said in my dreams, she is REALLY dangerous when angry,though.

    • He/she can be a bit mean if she/he thinks that you are in hers/his territory. Or he/she is just scared or nervous of you. Or, if you adopted her/him, he/she might have a bad past and it’s just haunting her. I believe your dog is trying to be the dominant one and is trying to make you the Submissive one.

    • You dog doesn’t hate you, right now you have a new scent about you and your dog is trying to get used to it. It may bite you tho but don’t take it personally. Right now you dog is trying to challenge you because you smell like a dog, he wants to see if he can be the alpha dog in the house!!! :grin: don’t fall for that!!! Show that dog whose the real alpha is!!! LOL

  5. I need an explanation to this:

    I have a bracelet that is black with 14 5-point stars (white stars) with no base color inside the stars and I REALLY like it, but I REALLY hate it as well. Please tell me why if you can.

    Thank you if you tried, or did

  6. Seriously this isn’t your own personal posting page.
    Huh

    “Mean” dogs are generally fearful. They perceive danger where there is none and so they act out of fear. Animals aren’t ever deliberately cruel. They act on instinct.

  7. I think my sister is a pure blood werewolf… I need help to recognize the things “pure-blooded” werewolves do, as I am only part vampire and partly werewolf, I have REALLY pale skin even though I go outside a lot, but when I eat bloody meat, my cheeks look a little flushed. I believe I am also a werewolf because I act just like my sister at night and I don’t act like the way she does. EVER!!!!

    • Hmmmm sounds right.

      Generally the signs of werewolfism are, anger and aggression issues, headaches, jaw pain, heightened senses, strength, fast growth of hair and nails, pointed teeth, golden/hazel/color changing eyes, sensitivity to bright lights and high pitched noise, unexplained attraction to ancient symbols (the triscele), and finally actual transformation.
      Long list huh?
      As for “pure blooded” that term isn’t commonly used. Genetic wolves are those who inherit their powers and they tend to be stronger. Wolves who are bitten tend to be less in control. And those who are turned through my mark are the most powerful. The mark of fenrir, how the first werewolves were made.

      • Why do people do almost exact descriptions of meee :!:

        I think I’m definitely a werewolf a Hunter or blood clan

  8. I think i have inherited the trait from some part of my family. Neither of my parents seem to know anything about it and most of my grandparents are dead. I know that both sides are from different parts of europe which is where most of the werewolf legends originate from the research ive been doing. My question is this, how do you trigger the gene? And what is the 12 you were talking about earlier, i contacted somone to get information who said he/she was #7, thought she was just messing with me so i dropped it. Any ansers would be extremely helpful as im going out of my mind latly. There is a lunar eclipse comming soon also. Thanks

  9. Ran out of space above, I’ll reply here.

    Of course I can understand that it skips generations. In some families it has been dormant for a hundred years or more before it comes out.
    You’re talking to the Norse wolf god, I invented werewolves. (I know what I’m talking about.)

    • Im glad i found someone who Can give me some further insite on this. If you are who you say you are I beg you to give me somthing to help it come full circle. Ever since my birthday a couple months ago a lot of things have been happening To me and is unexplainable by anything “common” i guess you could put it, so i started to do a pile of research and the only thing that came up close was this. At first i didnt think anything like this existed like many others i assume but the further i got into it i learned that it has just been twisted by people who dont know much about it to begin with. I dont want to ask for any personal info from you because thats not smart to give out but if there is somewhere we can talk with a faster reply time i can explain further, thanks you have been helpful so far,

  10. I am genetic I want bitten but I can control everything my eyes changing color my teeth grow but my hair doesn’t really grow cuz I learned how to control it im a monster you don’t want to temper with when im mad my body heat picks up real fast the amount of heat to make it feel like fire im a wolf through a bloodline of alphas and im the last of my kind

  11. I’m not sure if I’m a werewolf or not because the past few days have been odd. I just feel stronger like I can do almost anything. Also I wake up feeling tired like I did something the whole night. Please help me :twisted: :???:

  12. Many years ago when I was more or less age 7, my dog bit my hand. A couple of years later my milk teeth fell and then my permanent teeth grew, all but my canine teeth. Years later they grew back but they are much bigger than the other teeth and they look like the ones of a dog or wolf. Seriously, they are huge and many of my friends doubt of my humanity so I am starting to worry about it too. Could I be turning into a werewolf or weredog or something supernatural? Please give me your opinion.

  14. I’m only fourteen, and I’m in the middle of puberty, probably closer to the end. I think I may have Werewolf genetics, but I have no idea how to find out for sure. The reason I stated I’m in the middle of puberty is because I’ve heard that more signs begin to show up, and lately I’ve been staring at the moon for hours, and I keep having dreams about a large woodman staring me down, and when I wake up I see yellow eyes for a split second. My canines have gotten larger and sharper, and sometimes at night my vision goes all red in the dark. Am I a werewolf, or just nuts?

    • You are not nuts at all, your body is going through physical and mental changes. It can be scary and nerve racking but believe me I when through the same thing when I had strange dreams but it’s your mind trying to tell you your a wolf!!! But I’m not nuts and u are not either!!! :D it gets easier, believe me. :grin:

  16. I am looking for my place … I came from the ancient druid bloodline, but I was bitten by a wolf at the age of 4yrs old. I’m 32 now, and I am feeling change in my life physically, and spiritually. I have the kiss of the great fortitude on my forehead given to me by a beautiful clan of wiccans. Yet the war of good, and evil is a heavy battle on my soul. Hoping there is more people out here like me, or if anyone would know anything would be great help to me. :???:

  17. I don’t know if I’m one or not. My teeth are sharper and stronger than usual. I’m strong for my age and quite fast for my size. I love animals but none are mean to me, they love me actually and act like I’m dominant to them (talking about dogs). I have cats but none are scared of me. I love the moon and I always wake up like I’ve been doing something in the night but I only remember going to sleep and dreaming about things (normally being a werewolf in a forest). My nails are sharp and grow fast if I cut them. I love wolves and I’ve always wanted to be one. I’m always attracted to fighting and those kinds of games. I will want to howl whenever I hear the wolves in my backyard (I think they are, they could be coyotes). I basically act like a wolf a lot (when I’m alone). Other wise I have to act normal (so hard). Pls tell me if I’m one or not!

    • You can tell by there attitude. Try to remember your confusion when it happened, they might say strange things. Have anger problems if they are actually normally nice. That’s how u tell. My boyfriend went through the same issue!!! :grin:

  18. I am super strong and fast even when I run on all fours my mother carries this gene I believe because her blood is o+ and the werewolf gene is recessive I believe I will turn when I am XXXXXXXXX one of my friends tested my blood and he said I have a werewolf gene and he was a werewolf I have wanted this for so long I was just wondering if there was a quicker way to activate it

  19. somebody I know is a werewolf and he took a sample of my blood and he said I had the werewolf gene I was thinking I will turn when I am XX at the most I was wondering if there was a quicker way to activate it I experienced anger really bad but I have learn to control it I want to use this gift for good only I see signs like I am super strong and fast even when I run on my hands and feet please reply back

    Edited: For your safety please do not post personal information like your age, birthday, full real name, email or your location. Thanks.

  20. Can someone please tell me if this is real. I really don’t think werewolves and stuff like this is possible, but weird things keep happening. I’m XX and I’ve been feeling rather strange for about 2 and a half weeks now. At first I didnt think anything of it but now I’m starting to wonder. My friends have noticed that something is wrong with me as well. Lately I’ve been having a strange feeling like in more aware of things. Every once in a while one of my muscles will begin twitching and feeling as if it’s stretching. I feel like in going crazy. I could hear my neighbors talking across the street from my room. Every night I feel like going outside and just being free. I feel so couped up inside. Is it possible I inherited some kind of gene from my mother or father? I’ve never met my father, and anytime I’ve ever asked questions about my father she just ignores me. I’m getting freaked out and I need to know what is happening to me? Please don’t make some smart ass comment. Because I doubt it has anything to do with Lycanthropy. Sorry if I offended anyone.

      • This is all too real if you ask me. I’ve always felt that I was connected to wolves since I was younger. We used t have a family of wolves in our backyard and I always used to howl with them and play with them. Is that weird? But when ever I talk/ask about werewolves my parents change the subject xD I think something’s going on in my family. And it’s all too real…

  21. Help i think i have a werewolf gene that skiped my mom and dad i com from Chippewa indian tribe am i one i am ten

  22. I am from a very real Blood Hunters Clan. Be careful guys. Some of my clan are seeing what you are writing and are passing it on to other real clans. I am a genetic wolf. I just want to warn you guys to be careful what you write. Other clans will not warn you about what you are doing.

  23. Age of old long gone, wives tales proven true. Tis a line but no line, and fang crosses fang to give gift of curse. Then there breaths a soul for soul. For we do not inherit from our fathers, we borrow from our sons, this is the cycle of the lupine.

  24. Hey , if i get a werewolf to bite me will i heal faster then a regular human being? and can only a alpha make more werewolves?

  25. Anyone know any good books about the werewolf change? I’m going through it now, but my body is reacting in a on and off manor. Aches and pains, head aches,having the urge to hunt, feeling sick, feeling my soul astral project a little and my thoughts seem scrambled.

    • I get aches and pains and I’m a werewolf and I also get ichey too sometimes headachest and I get the urge to attack and kill and bit and eat what I kill but I don’t kill I’m XXXXXXXX
