Technically speaking, a werewolf is a monster according to the online dictionary which says:
- a werewolf is “a human being who has changed into a wolf, or is capable of assuming the form of a wolf, while retaining human intelligence.”
- a monster is (well actually there are several definitions, but here is one:) “any animal or human grotesquely deviating from the normal shape, behavior, or character” OR “any creature so ugly or monstrous as to frighten people”
Since a werewolf does deviate from the normal shape and behavior of HUMANS, and does frighten people, then yes, by human definition a werewolf is a monster. However I personally believe that a werewolf should be classified as a species of animal. So if classified as an animal, then a werewolf is NOT a monster!
Here is the online definition of an animal:
- an animal is any such living thing other than a human being.
So, a werewolf is an animal. Animals do have souls and are neither good nor evil. Therefore a werewolf has a soul and is neither good nor evil.
Do you think a werewolf is a monster or an animal?
