Yes," cheese, "burned alive. And, if she were not, you cannot conceive what treatment she would be obliged to submit to from her relatives. They would shave off her hair, feed her on a scanty allowance of rice, treat her with contempt; she would be looked upon as an unclean creature, and would die in some corner, like a scurvy dog. The prospect of so frightful an existence drives these poor creatures to the sacrifice much more than love or religious fanaticism.

HEAR YE HEAR YE. "Aye, sir," said Starbuck drawing near, "'tis a solemn sight; an omen, and an ill one."
"Omen? omen?—the dictionary! If the gods think to speak outright to man, they will honourably speak outright; not shake their heads,

On a normal day, werewolves look exactly like humans do, and there is no real way to tell them apart. They may be slightly taller on average, but nothing unsightly or unusual. Eye colors range from brown, blue, black, and green; hair colors blonde, brown, and black - they do not seem to carry any genes for red hair. On a full moon, werewolves are forced into their humanoid forms - some, almost grotesque, combination of wolf and human. This form is forced on them with the setting of the sun, and reversed when the sun rises in the morning - they cannot shift into this form at will. During this time, they will experience an increased level of strength, speed, endurance, and pain tolerance. Their control over themselves at this time seems to vary and increase with age. Many werewolves have retained their completely wolf forms and can shift into them at will, passed onto them from their ancestors. However, this is not true for all of them, and is considered an ability. They live on average to about 70.
After the werewolves terrorized the All Mother's children in an uncontrollable and unpredictable rage, the All Mother tampered with their makeup some to put a damper on their violent behavior. Svatur's magic was powerful, and so the All Mother removed most of it, but not all. She used the full moon as a warning to other creatures in Xisin that the werewolves were roaming in their unpredictable states. Out of conscientiousness, many werewolves choose to isolate themselves during this time. Some will flock to Aikia, a healing temple founded by the phoenixes. Although the phoenixes cannot control their form, they have created a network of reinforced chambers in the underground suited for restraining them and hopefully giving them some privacy. However, there is only so much room there, and it isn't uncommon for werewolves to be turned away at the last moment. Because of their history of violence, werewolves are shunned by most of the other races, and go to lengths to keep their true identities a secret.
All werewolves experiences many physical perks when they are in their werewolf forms, but it varies as to whether or not those perks translate into their human forms. Additionally, many werewolves can shapeshift, but only into a wolf form. Werewolves are not inclined in any other magics.
