A werewolf, also sometimes called a lycanthrope (from the Greek λυκάνθρωπος: λύκος, lykos, "wolf", and ἄνθρωπος, anthrōpos, "man"[1]), is a creature existing in mythology and folklore. A female werewolf is sometimes called a she-wolf. According to many folkloric stories, a werewolf is a man who transforms into a wolf during the full moon. In the Life's a Fish and Then You Fry universe, werewolves are existing in the real world, although continue to keep their existence secretive to the public due to fear of the species' extinction.

Well known werewolves in the Life's a Fish and Then You Fry fan fiction series are Chakor Channing and his enemy and former love Kamalia Phellan, who Chakor bit and turned into a werewolf as his revenge on her for allegedly "betraying" him. A bite from a werewolf is commonly used a one of the only ways to become a werewolf in folklore. There have been other known ways to become werewolf both in fiction and in alleged fact, but most of these supposed ways to become a werewolf would likely either fail to actually turn the person into a werewolf or would most likely make the person extremely sick or possibly even die.

Although the term "werewolf" translates to "man-wolf", "were" translating to "man", the existence of these creatures in both genders is not eliminated.

Appearance

Werewolves are usually described with two well known appearances. The first appearance being the way that the character Larry Talbot was depicted as "The Wolf Man" in the film of the same name. The more commonly reported appearance of an alleged werewolf by an eyewitness usually states that: the werewolf is larger than an average male human, walks on two legs (although have been rumored to sometimes walk on four), has a muscular upper body and legs, has a very wolf-like head including pointed ears, a wolf's muzzle and black nose, and the final attribute that is sometimes described, but not very often, is having a large furry tail like that of an actual gray wolf.

Some alleged accounts of werewolves of a female gender usually described them as appearing the same way as male werewolves, only shorter in height and have slightly less muscle. They are, however, larger than an average human male and have more muscle than the average male human.
