The Alpha Wolf

October 6th, 2009 § 33

There are many different kinds of werewolves, and the Alpha Wolf is just one. Although some may argue the Alpha Wolf is the most important and powerful kind of werewolf there is.

Historically the Alpha werewolf is a shape changing creature that can become wolf by rubbing an ointment on themselves or by wearing a charm. Other ancient legends point to heredity playing a big part in the Alpha wolves. These legends state that one can only be an Alpha wolf if they are born into it. The legend also states that it can sometimes skip a generation, leaving some members of the family in complete unchanging human form. Should a new generation have the Alpha wolf gene passed onto them, it usually does not show up until puberty. Those who become Alpha wolves this way are thought to have supernatural strength and even some psychic abilities.

Ancient legend also states that there is one way to become an Alpha wolf without being born into the family line. That exception is to make a pact with the devil but this was a most extreme method. It was thought to only occur when a human wanted to seek revenge upon the death of someone they loved. Being in Alpha form could then give them supernatural abilities to conquer anyone and anything. Should one become an Alpha wolf this way, it’s thought that the shape-changing can be done at the wolf’s will and no conditions, such as a full moon, are needed.

The Twilight series focuses heavily on the Alpha wolf, with Jacob Black as the rightful heir to the title. In this take on the myth, Jacob gives up this right to another in the pack, Sam, and becomes Sam’s right-hand companion. Twilight has a very interest take on the Alpha role position and it continues to come up throughout the entire series.

    werewolves are not blood thirsty evil beasts thats just a stereotype
    started by vampires and store owners that sell silver objects.

    I don’t understand why you idiots believe you’re actually werewolves or acclaiming to want to be werewolves. It’s a tribal situation, one can’t just become one. And it’s not like lycans are nice to anyone. It’s a lifestyle, not just an occupation. Not a fantasy world for you no lifes to live in. We’ve been around since Lilith seduced Adam, as in Adam & Eve. You only know that you want your life to be different, so change it yourself. Just get a job, save your money, and move away. Stop wanting something that won’t ever happen.

  11. i dont believe there real because they dont look like it dont you guys think?

  12. Albert says:

    I don’t know much about werewolves but I want to become one since I was little. Can anyone help with this??

  13. listen up midnightdoodoohead. we can believe what we want to. i bet you believed in werewolves. why are you even on here? are hurt other people’s feelings calling them no lives and idiots? i think you need to just get off the computer, get your butt in a corner and think about how people feel right now about your comment. i bet you believed in many creatures that could exsist in another galaxies or dimension or a parralell universe which is possible to get to with being killed. if we could go back in time the closest type of werewolf like thing would be the anubis an egyptian type of werewolf. midnightrider just shut up with your mean comments and say something nice. apoligize to those you terrirized with your typed words.

  14. sorry you can live going through a parralell universe

  20. Matersae of Draconae says:

    What should you do if a werewolf is being hunted and you want to help it?

  21. Unknown says:

    Actually According to our Scientific studies. is that we have found plenty of unusual bites on human beings. But apparently they do not cause any body-shaping to those who were bitten. Yet, people have reported some unusual Reports, As in an animal, big and black (is all they remember) Seeing when last being with those victims. Some people are unclear with what they have seen and are traumatized for life. Although most people do not believe in This Alpha. but in what i think, it is. With the bites we have seen, I’m pretty sure there IS something out there. but all i must say is only in urban territories. But some, very rare are in the city. And for myself, i have seen quite alot of Extremely awful things in the forest’s all i say to you. is dare not go out in a full moon, midnight in to the woods or forests, whichever you recall is more dangerous. Therefore, these Beasts Or monsters whatever they are being referenced as are something that is very horrible. DO NOT make a pact with the devil. You must be pretty brave to doubt this. – Unknown
