  1. Actually, the "get bit to become a werewolf" is a modern variation on the folklore. The original folklore generally involved wearing a belt made of wolf skin and various spells, and IIRC, curses.

  2. Thanks Rena. The legend of the werewolf is probably one of the hardest to fully comprehend, I admit. There are so many variations to sort out. However, there seems to be somewhat of a consensus that if I, as a human, want to become a werewolf, I need for one to bite me.
