Werewolves of the Senses
Scientific Name: Lupus vir
There is no noticeable difference in size between human and werewolf forms. They can be of any height due to the nature of these werewolves.
Like all werewolf species they can be found worldwide. There is no known origin of Lycans as their populations are often unpredictable, usually they rapidly increase in high human density areas and their either take over the area or are wiped out by hunters.
Lycans do not have an extended lifespan; if anything they have a very short one. Given their nature they become prime targets of hunters after they have become active after their first full moon after infection.
Like all werewolves they have enlarged canines though they don't have a distinct characteristic in human form.
In werewolf form, Lycans do not develop any body fur in their werewolf form. They look remarkably like humans when shifted with the exception of wolf-like claws on their hands, wolf-like teeth, and pale blue eyes.
Lycans are extremely strong, fast and agile in their werewolf forms but this is not evident in their human forms. There are extremely allergic to silver. Silver acts as a acid when brought in contact with their skin why in werewolf form. Though silver doesn't have the same effect on their human forms, they will subconsciously avoid it.
Lycans in human form don't have any noticeably enhanced senses. Only in werewolf form do they experience sharper senses which are far stronger than any of the other species though this is mainly do to the nature of these werewolves who are also the most primitive of all the werewolves.
Lycans have only the most basic of speech reminiscent of a wolf and are unable to converse with other werewolf species or wolves.
They are omnivorous with an enlarged appetite for meat.
Lycans are the only full moon shifters. At this time they become uncontrollable and blood thirsty though they appear to remember nothing in their human form. In human form they are more vulnerable to mental problems especially if they remember anything from their werewolf state as the primeval instincts may try to take hold of them. They are the faster werewolf healers except that wounds caused by silver can not heal. Their ability to heal is the reason they can't remember anything from their werewolf state as their human minds can't deal with what they have done.
They can't reproduce their own young.
Unlike the other werewolves of their species, Lycans don't form social units. It is rare for a bond between a pair to develop but once established it is for life. They will never leave each others side even when in human form. When a mate has been killed, this is the only known time when the werewolf form becomes permanent shifted as the remaining Lycan will continue to search for the murderer even after they have killed them. Lycans are unable to deal with loss because of their primeval instincts, this is when they are most vulnerable to hunters but they are much more dangerous.
In order to become a Lycan you must be infected by an individual of this species. Once changed there is no reversal.
A Lycan in werewolf form can be killed traditionally with a silver bullet to the heart or a few bullets near major veins. Because silver acts as acid to them, the accumulative effect of the bullets in the blood stream can efficiently shut down their systems. A hunter can also decapitate the head of the werewolf which shuts of their ability to heal, this is not recommended unless extremely experienced for obvious reasons.
It is different for them in human form, though a silver bullet does work they are still have all the same vulnerable spots a human does. It is highly recommended to kill a Lycan after it has turned back into their human form.
