A werewolf is a human or human-like creature that occasionally transforms into a wolf. Traditionally, this metamorphose is linked to the lunar phase of full moon, but this is not necessarily the case.
When werewolves are in their human form, there are little signs in their appearance that they are a werewolf.
- Enhanced physique. Werewolves have enhanced speed and strength, reaction speed and increased senses (smell, vision and hearing).
- Regeneration. Werewolves are said to regenerate faster from injuries and diseases, as well as to be immune to some illnesses.
- In TV series Teen Wolf, werewolves are given enhanced senses, and a few other various gifts, when they have transformed. Shape-shifting into a werewolf can heal scars, or even long-term diseases. While it is optional for a werewolf to ultimately decide to join a pack, contributing to a group aids the werewolf by helping them become physically stronger, and therefore, more powerful.
