A2Z 23

W for werewolf ❤️In ancient civilizations, they were depicted as shape-shifting creatures that could transform from human to wolf form. In many cultures, werewolves were believed to be supernatural beings that possessed the ability to transform into wolves at will, or were created when a person was cursed or bitten by a wolf. In some stories, werewolves are portrayed as evil and monstrous creatures that prey on humans, while in others, they are depicted as sympathetic figures who struggle with their animal nature.

Some scholars believe the werewolf made its debut in The Epic of Gilgamesh, the oldest known Western prose, when Gilgamesh jilted a potential lover because she had turned her previous mate into a wolf.
