Do all werewolves howl?
Whether or not a werewolf howls says alot about what kind of human and werewolf they are.
Werewolves that Howl
Werewolves that howl lean much more towards the animal side of their character. They prefer to be the “werewolf” instead of a human, and give themselves wholly up during transformation. They prefer to be in the werewolf state, and when they are in a werewolf state, they are strong and in control. They use the howl as reinforcement of these feelings. As a human, this type of werewolf has similar traits – they are typically outgoing, and often like to be in the center of the action. They know who they are and typically also know what they want.
Werewolves that do not Howl
Werewolves that do not howl lean more towards the human side of their character. Sometimes, what is causing the werewolf not to howl is that he/she is still resisting being a werewolf. They do not give themselves completely over during a transformation and may not be completely comfortable with the fact that they are werewolves. Another thing that can prevent a werewolf from howling is having a reserved personality. A werewolf that is shyer, quieter, or less social is less likely to howl. By their very nature they are more reserved and less likely to have the spontaneous nature that howling usually requires. Finally, one of the most common things that prevents a werewolf from howling, is having a cautious personality. This type of personality is actually quite good for werewolves, as it serves to protect the werewolf from being acknowledged or noticed by humans.
