werewolves howl at the moon because….

Werewolf 967,

Hmmm… I think there are only 2 possibilities on HOW a werewolf transforms, they are:

1.  Involuntarily by the full moon

2.  Voluntarily by meditation

I personally agree with Dnilan who says that the werewolf transformation happens through meditation.  As I mentioned before, maybe when a person first becomes a werewolf it is involuntarily transformed by the moon, but over time they learn to “Control the Beast” as you say!

As far as why werewolves howl at the moon, here are the possibilities:

1. werewolves howl at the moon because they’re trying to locate other werewolves (this is similar to the reason wolves howl at the moon).

2.  werewolves howl at the moon because whenever they see the moon they get mad and remember how painful it was to become a werewolf, so they howl in frustration and anger

3.  werewolves are NOT actually howling at the moon….they just howl in general, and since it is almost always a full moon when they are werewolves, we ASSUME they are howling at the full moon..but really they are just howling to howl.

Those are all the reasons I can think of as to why a werewolf  would howl at the moon.  I personally believe #2. Why? because after they howl, what happens? no, no other werewolves appear. what happens is they go on an attack of some kind…and I think they attack out of anger and frustration. What do you think?

    I think a werewolf is howling at the moon because *it* has so much power that it made the werewolf transform. Yes, the first transformation hurts, alot, and you never forget it, but you kind of don’t feel in the same way when you are in wolf form. You have wolf emotions, and aren’t always angry, as some stories say, but you hunt out of instinct.

    I think that werewolves have souls and that werewolves are not monsters, they are just misunderstood creatures and that when they kill some one its because they cant control themselves. well i have an anger faze and when i get hit by some one hard enough i get really mad and the anger faze just activates and i go so ballistic, like one time i bit my sister and riped 2 layers of skin off of her arm(for some strange reason i have really sharp teeth). i act like an animal.

    p.s. i could never control it and i seem to walk with my hands and feet(like a dog). my friends are all like me but i and the strongest and the wildest. i would fight like a wolf against my sister(i am a bit small and my sister is big but when i take her on i always beat her).

  3. Selene, so what your are saying is that the instinct takes control of your mind and you have to hunt people or animals for food?

    Just for the record: The full moon thing is a creation of the cinema, and has nothing to do with werewolves. It began with the movie THE WEREWOLF OF LONDON, and was used again in the Lon Chaney, Jr. WOLF MAN films (not so much in the first one, but the sequels).

    You see, the “werewolf” in the movies is really a version of Mr. Hyde from DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. The filmmakers took elements from other stories and legends, and this hodgepodge became what the general public thinks of when they hear the word “werewolf.”

    Here is a list of items commonly associated with werewolves that are not part of the true werewolf legend:

    1. The bite of a werewolf will turn the victim into a werewolf.
    Sorry, but this is adopted from the legend of the vampire. The vampire’s bite was thought to turn the victim into a vampire. It’s not that simple, but this is where it comes from.

    2. The person becomes a werewolf at full moon.
    This is drawn from the documented cases of lunatics, or people who went mad when the moon was full. The moon served as a catalyst for the transformation in the movies. More on that a little later.

    3. The werewolf can only be killed by silver.
    This is another cinematic creation. Silver has been referred to as “moon metal,” so the “moon monster” can only be killed with “moon metal.” It also serves to render the beast less susceptible to conventional weaponry, thus making it harder to kill in the film.

    4. The sign of the beast is the pentagram.
    Nope. The pentagram has come to be known as a witch or occult symbol, but it actually began with early scientists and mathematicians, who were regarded in ancient times as wizards. The symbol they used to identify themselves for their secret meetings was . . . the pentagram.

    The truth is, for the title character in a werewolf movie to be sympathetic to the audience, he can’t WANT to be a werewolf. So the filmmakers took the story of Dr. Henry Jekyll and used the werewolf for the Mr. Hyde persona. There is a catalyst (formula/moon) and the transformation is involuntary and makes the afflicted person’s loved one’s vulnerable.

    REAL werewolves of legend changed at will at any time of day or year. They were transformed by magic and often used wolfskin or ointment in a ritual to make it happen.

    But the Wolf Man and his full moon transformations is all movie, and has no foundation in the legend of the werewolf.

    Even if they don’t howl in the moon, (if they do, ) Then they must have howled to know that thire there. Or maybe to call other wolfs?

  6. Selene says:

    I think that werewolves are overpowered by instict when they become wolves. In some stories, they con only become werewolves when they give themselves over to there insticts.

  7. Re says:

    Yes that might be true. Always in books it says that “since werewolves are animals that the human has to give up to the instincts. Unless you can over power them you shall not have them” Or something like that.

  8. nezumi says:

    pretty much riht wolves as a known fac howl when lonely dogs do too so that’s most likly why. though the frustration isn’t a bad idea either.

  9. Alice says:

    Maby its a cry for help to god. Although i can’t dismiss the theory of communication maby its a cry from a longing to fine another, or a cry to warn
    people that they need to get away or prehaps just to mess with people giving them the shivers.
