Real Life Werewolves

By Tameka Aych


American werewolves

American Werewolves

  • In every culture, they have some form of the shape shifting beast that prowls the night. To America, this beast is called the werewolf.

  • Nowadays, there are romanticized werewolves, like Jacob Black in Twilight, but back then, American werewolves were bloodthirsty beasts.


Greek werewolves

Greek Werewolves

  • It was thought that werewolves originated from Greece.

  • Zeus disguised himself as a traveler and stayed with the vicious Arcadian King Lycaon.

  • After nearly being killed by Lycaon, Zeus cursed him, making him turn into a wolf for years before turning back into a human.


Norman werewolves

Norman Werewolves

  • Norseman Myths say, warriors dressed themselves in the skins of wolves and were thought to gain the attributes of the wolves.

  • It is said that they “fear no one, feel no pain, have superhuman strength, and never surrender”.

  • These warriors were called Berserkers and they are where the word “berserk” comes from.


Werewolf syndrome

Werewolf Syndrome

  • The current scientific theory for werewolves is a skin disease, called Werewolf Syndrome (scientifically called Hypertrichosis).

  • It describes an abnormal growth in hair all around the body, and the extreme cases of this disease are how it earned the name “Werewolf Syndrome”.


Peter stumpp

Peter Stumpp

  • In Cologne, Germany, a man was accused of being a werewolf, thanks to his heinous crimes that were said to be werewolf like.

  • He killed sixteen people (fourteen children and two pregnant women) by ripping out their throats and eating the bodies.


Lycanthrope

Lycanthrope

  • Lycanthrope is a rare mental disease that involves the afflicted person whole heartedly believing that he or she has or can turn into an animal (not a wolf all the time, but mostly).

  • The symptoms of lycanthrope will be a change in behavior; the person will act like the animal he/she believes he is.

  • It is said that this disease may be caused by some form of dementia or psychosis.
