This is an attempt to clear up a few things… bare with me.
Now i’m going to be as open and frank as i am allowed to be. a friend of mine posted a little video on their blog for me titled: ‘for my favorite Were…’ – it got the ol’ juices a bubblin and so i called a few of my um, ‘friends.’ We went over some old stories and reminded each other of something very very important: ‘Legend.’ so, idk, i just thought i’d share. actually no. im going to break a few rules here. but don’t worry. i’ll be ok. it is JUST a dumb glitch-rapper’s blog anyways right? LOL.
ok. here we go:
The original werewolf of OUR legend is Lycaon, a king of Arcadia who was turned into a wolf as punishment for attempting to serve his own son(Nyctimus) to Zeus as a sacrifice in an attempt to disprove Zeus’ divinity.
…immediately after the sacrifice Lycaon was turned into a black wolf. Nyctimus rose from the altar as a white wolf and ran away off into the forest. This is what gave birth to the story that a man was turned into a wolf at each annual sacrifice to Zeus. Zeus told Lycaon he could recover his human form if he abstained from human flesh for ten years. (which of course he could not do.) The oldest city, the oldest cult (that of Zeus Lycaeus), and the first civilization of Arcadia are dedicated to Lycaon. His story has been variously interpreted of course so you’ll have to decide for yourselves but for US… this is the classic story.
Lycaon was the son of Pelasgus and Meliboea, father of Oenotrus and the first king of Arcadia. He was a great ruler but he was also a tyrant who cared little about his subjects. He spawned no less than fifty sons, each one as greedy and evil as him except Nyctimus. From these sons came the various “Wolf-Clans” of the world. From Nyctimus came a different kind of ‘Wolf.’
in 1692 a decendant of Nyctimus, Thiess, testified under oath that he and other werewolves were the Hounds of God(Zeus) He claimed they were warriors(Wolf Angels) who went into hell to do battle with witches and demons. Their efforts ensured that the Devil and his minions did not carry off the abundance of the earth down to hell. Thiess was steadfast in his assertions, claiming that werewolves in Germany and Russia also did battle with the devil’s minions in their own versions of hell, and insisted that when werewolves died, their souls were welcomed into heaven as reward for their service. Thiess was ultimately sentenced to ten lashes for Idolatry and superstitious belief and then exiled. This begat the legend of the White Wolf as the “Wolf of God” popularly used today in the “Werewolf” RPG games.
So the werewolves of OUR legend are two seperate clans. The Black Wolves, and The White Wolves. one set decends from Lycaon himself who never regained his human form and the other set decending from Lycaon’s son; Nyctimus. The Black Wolves are those who are usually associated with vampires and the like. In OUR story the Vampires are actually decendants of Lycaon who have made certain ‘Majickal’ discoveries which have led them to be able to assume human form. but with a catch. this is why they still have wolf teeth and an unquenchable thirst for human blood. It is also what gave birth to the myth of Vampires and Werewolves being at some great age-old war. The truth is that its still just Werewolves at war with Werewolves. The Black Wolves(Vampires) are at war with the Wolves of God(White Wolf Clan.) There has been a great decrease in effort on the White Clans function of Guardian to Humans and a greater emphasis on protecting Gaia(the Earth Mind) from corruption. For along while the focus was on protecting ‘Nature’ on the physical battlefield. Since the peak of the last Aeon the White Clan has realized that the Earth in the physical sense isn’t to be and CAN’T be ‘saved’ from the corruption. Now the battlefield is as it was before, the actual regions of Hell and Heaven and of course the biggest playing field: the Aethyr’s in between the two.
So yeah. THEY exist. and as most ‘super-natural’ things are much greater than their MYTHS and those who weave them could ever imagine.
