what are the odds of becoming a werewolf?
Unfortunately, the chances that you will ever become a werewolf in your lifetime are incredibly small.
One of the things that humans like to say is, “Well, all I have to do is be bitten by one and I’ll turn into one!” While this is easy to say, in actuality it is much harder than you would think to get it to come to pass.
First, you’d have to actually run into a werewolf in person. Yes, you can find werewolves online in little corners of the webverse where they can remain anonymous, but to actually find one in person is going to be a whole other story! Not only are werewolves very protective of their privacy, but also the population of werewolves in today’s world is infinitesimally small compared to their population – in other words, the chances that you would actually meet one (and know it) are smaller than your chances of winning a major lottery!
Then, even assuming that you could meet one, and assuming that being bitten by that particular werewolf would turn you into one (because in fact not all werewolf bites turn humans into werewolves), you would have another job altogether making the werewolf bite you. Most werewolves value their privacy and keep to themselves. They are not going to bite you simply because you ask them to. And then if you were to provoke one into biting you…what do you think the chances are that you would actually survive the encounter? Werewolves are stronger, smarter, and faster than humans, so be prepared!
So that won’t work…what else?
So as it turns out, it’s not that easy to simply say you’ll find a werewolf and be bitten by one. What other choice does that leave you? There are some legendary rituals that are said to turn you into one, but those generally require very specific items or very specific actions performed very precisely. If you can accomplish it correctly, your chances increase, but the number of humans that actually are able to do so are very very small because of the vagueness in the instructions left to the present day.
