You should start your quest on learning about Were-creatures, by reading our article "Were" is the Word.
Were-creatures obtained their status in a myriad of ways, depending on the cultural and/or religious text you are gleaning the information from. The answers given by the spirits of those asked vary greatly as well, spanning from simply being bit, to a ritual sacrifice, to being the hybrid offspring derived through divine means. The manifestation of a were metamorphesis also vary, from actually being half & half in permanent appearance to simply obtaining certainly qualities. For instance, some were-lizard entities were known to look just like a human, but have scaling over part or the whole of their bodies. Whereas some were-bears were known to only obtain super-human strength and the ability to nearly deafen opponents with their gutteral noises. The documentation of were-creatures is vast and incredible.
While age spans, once turned, can vary, the average did not exceed 150 years as a hybrid. Were-creatures were vigorously hunted for purposes of magick, and out of fear. For communities who had fellow villagers or townsfolk turned, most viewed it as a form of possession, and would kill the person "infected". However, there is strong evidence that supports the theory that for those who were turned and maintained a great portion of their human form, reproduction was accomplished and offspring would have a 50/50 chance of receiving any were attributes from the turned parent.
The most common Were-creatures:
> Were-pyre (correct term for Vampires who were turned humans and not pure bloods)
> Were-wolf (correct term for Werewolves who were turned humans and not pure bloods)
