Do werewolves have tails?

You can find pictures (and movies) of werewolves both ways, with and without, and it is much debated which is true. Many modern movies will show werewolves with tails, I think one of the reasons for this is that it is something very different from humans, and something which humans do not have. If you grow a tail when you transform, you are definitely not human….the movie Ginger Snaps is a good example of this, they use the growth of the tail to show that this person is not human, and it’s supposed to be one of the first signs of the werewolf transformation.

More logically however, werewolves do not have tails.  Werewolves are humans that transform…growing a tail would mean growing actual bones during the transformation process.  While many things happen during transformation, growing an actual tail is not one of them.

    i grow a tail to. it started out short then as i matured and transformed more often, it got longer. now it is only about six inches or so.

  3. Dramund says:

    the genetics for a tail are there, just needs to be woken up

  4. Diane says:

    I am told that they do in fact grow tails. Also, my friend was a little upset by my asking him that question. He said, “Yes, of sorts. I don’t like that question. It makes it seem cartoonish.”

    do u any of u know wat a seer is

  6. Young Wolf Alpha Lexi says:

    Fire Phinex.. a seer is just someone who can see certain things without the use of human eyes.. it’s an intuitive thing.. like seeing the future.. or seeing the past.. or even seeing death… it’s just a second sight that uses a different set of eyes than the ones your used to seeing through now… like I said.. it’s intuitive..

    i have heard a couple legends behind this. (warning includes religious bs undertones just sharing what i’v heard dont kill the messenger) 1 wolves were chosen to protect mankind from the evils of the world after being kicked out of Eden. able to take the form of man wolf and a “shared form” (i.e. werewolf form) the wolves fulfilled their purpose excellently allowing man to become the dominant species of the earth. in time man began to hate the wolf for their strength and transformation and called them evil. the wolves would not protect those who despised them and rejected their duty. as man spread across the world so did the wolves. in some lands the wolves were respected and honored protectors in other lands they were hated and feared. in the face of hatred the wolves consulted with witches who relieved them of their duty to humans but also their humanity. the witches removed their tails and turned them into the mindless beasts the humans believed them to be. cultures like the native americans honored the wolves so native american werewolves would likely still have tails. in europe wolves were called demons and probably have no tails

    I’m sorry to tell you, but you can not be turned into a werewolf (if you prefer that term) you have to be born as one. Another word for it is therian, here is a vague look at it:
