Human Form: As an Oak Werewolf in human form, you may become easily entranced by bright lights, fire places and warm sweaters. This is because of the hours that you spend in wolf form, in the darkest, coldest hours of the coldest nights. Oak Werewolves are traditionally very intense, direct, resolute, intellectual and somewhat demanding but highly loyal individuals.
Oak Clan teaches you to burn oak logs and incense in order to cover your werewolf scent from others.

Wolf Form: In wolf form, Oak Werewolves have the thickest coat that changes color with Moon Age. New wolves have black fur and with each moon it gradually turns gray and then white and finally true silver.
