Much to the confusion of humans, werewolves do not necessarily always know that they are werewolves. This is especially and specifically true for newer werewolves. Newer werewolves who are transforming for the first time may only have a partial transformation, and may not understand what the transformation means. During the first full physical transformation, they may black out or have memory loss and not even remember the event. First transformations can be frightening and confusing for the person transforming, to humans they will appear especially aggressive and terrifying often for these reasons.
