Dear werewolf 967,
I agree, according to the definitions, a werewolf is both an animal and a monster. And yes, I do believe that humans have souls, and…I actually believe that all living animals also have souls. Which means that yes, I believe werewolves have souls also! Just because they (may be) evil, or the devil’s associate, does not mean they have no soul – for example, murderers, criminals, and horrible people do have souls – but they are so evil that their soul goes back to the devil once they die! So could it not be that a werewolf yes is evil, has a soul, and once he dies the soul goes back to the devil! But maybe we will never agree on this, so let’s move on.
I did see the comment that someone said that werewolves do not transform under the full moon. I think this comes from modern portrayals of werewolves, where werewolves seem to have more control over their “transformations” – for example, Remus Lupin from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, or Underworld (didn’t they also have werewolves that had more control over their transformations?) So, the ‘werewolf tranforms because of the full moon’ is really old-fashioned thinking. I think when you first become a werewolf it is because of the full moon, but once you’ve been a werewolf for a while you start to have more control over the werewolf transformation and can transform as you feel like becoming a werewolf. It just takes practice, because really, if you think about it, what would prevent you from becoming a werewolf whenever you want to?
