Werewolves (reply to Justin)

In the General feedback thread, Justin wrote:
I would like to ask you if you could please share any knowledge that you might have regarding physical werewolves. Not the ones bound by mythology and superstition.

As far as I am aware, the only "werewolves" that exist in real life are Otherkin/Therians -- people who feel that they are the reincarnation of non-human animals (in this case, wolves) or other nonhuman entities, or who otherwise feel that they are nonhuman souls in human bodies.

As far as I am aware, they do not have any full-fledged superhuman abilities, although they may well be more likely than normal folks to have certain talents.

Wow Diane, you just gave one of the most tasteful and politically correct explanation of the whole "Otherkin/Werewolf" thing I've ever read. Thank you for offering sensible and reasoned information even when the subject matter strains credulity.
