Lycanthropes, or commonly referred to as Were-animal, are beings that have been afflicted with the disease Lycanthropy. This disease causes the character to transform into whatever animal afflicted them with the disease. Typically, the transformation will overwhelm the sentient part of the victim and the transformed animal will go on a violent, killing rampage.
However, given some training, the character can learn to control the transformations and the animal instincts that come with that. The animal that originally afflicted the character determines the animal that the character will turn into and the strengths and weakness of the character because of it.
Typically, while in humanoid form, the character shows some physical and mental aspects of their animal.
The animals that spread Lycanthropy can only be mammals.
There are Lycanthropes in all factions.
