Werewolves [1] are people who transform into an anthropomorphic wolf-like creatures when the moon is full. When a person is bitten by a Werewolf, they become one, too. [2]

HistoryEdit

There are not only werewolves. There are also cultures that believe in Wereaardvarks, Werebears, Werechickens, and other were-creatures.

A group of Werewolves settled in an isolated town somewhere in rural New York. They named the town Lupusville. However, the town was invaded by a Vampire faction led by Gregor. Gregor imprisoned the townsfolk in a basement prison. Eventually, they were freed by Egon and Winston. They took their true forms upon seeing the full moon and fought both factions of Vampires. [3] Ray told a campfire story about a Werewolf when everyone went on a camping trip upstate. [4]

Also, another kind of were-creature known as a Werechicken became a problem for the Ghostbusters. [5][6] Werechickens are humans and chickens possessed by chicken-like ghosts, which appears to imply that people transforming into werewolves could be a type of possession.

Other AppearancesEdit

In the first two issues of the comic book published by NOW Comics, Peter Venkman is trapped in a high school of Werewolves. When Egon, who was trapped in an alternate reality where Gozer succeeded in destroying mankind, teleported two Proton Packs elsewhere, one of them ended up in Peter's hands. He used it to destroy the school. The fifth issue introduced a Werewolf named Irena Cortez, who reappeared in later issues.

Basis in LegendEdit

Little is revealed about the Werewolves other than the required presence of a full moon in order for transformation to occur and a bite will turn a victim into a Werewolf. The exact origins were never revealed on the show, whether it was magic, supernatural, or paranatural like with the Werechickens being possessor ghosts or a Bigfoot being from another dimension. [7]
