What Happens When A Werewolf Is Shot With A Silver Bullet?

When it comes to Werewolves normal bullets will either bounce off a fully transformed Werewolf or penetrate on the surface layers of flesh. This depends on the metaphysical energies absorbed by any given full Moon along with a werewolf’s age.  The older they are the more they can withstand a hail of standard metal bullets. The successive absorption of lunar power builds their strength over time. Bullets that have penetrated their furry mass will dissolve into their base metals, and be absorbed into the bodies paranormal chemistry.  If they haven’t entered all the way in past their skin then they will simply pop out as the wound rapidly heals.

That being said there is a type of bullet that will seriously harm a werewolf. That being the infamous silver bullet that is the Lycanthropes Kryptonite. A bullet that will not hesitate to shoot deep into the supernatural flesh causing great damage!  Once inside the bullet will instantly dissolve, and the silver will enter the bloodstream for rapid distribution throughout the hairy horrors body.  Silver is a universal purification element that has been known to destroy bacteria and viruses since ancient times. In modern times applications of colloidal silver are used for this purpose. It was also discovered to ravage supernatural viruses that create demonic DNA in humans.  This includes not only werewolves but vampires as well. There’s no way to extract the bullet and kill is often instant.  Aforementioned factors like the intensity of the given full Moons energy and the werewolf’s age might allow them to hold on for some minutes. However, they will languish in sheer agony!  Once the Werewolf dies it transforms back to a human despite the full Moon. Certainly, a convenient thing to prevent potential mass proof of Werewolves existence.

If a Werewolf is shot in its human form by a normal bullet then a similar healing happens with the bullet being absorbed or self-extracted from the body.  Although the healing process is quite a bit slower. If they’re shot with a silver bullet there’s a window of about 5-15 minutes for them to extract the bullet before absorption of the silver poisons them to death.  A bullet hitting the brain or heart will cause instant death. The only hope of reversing any silver in their system is to wash the wound with unholy water along with drinking large quantities as well.  However, the side effect will be a feeling of being sick to one’s stomach along with intense sensations of evil thoughts.  Luckily the effects of this will wear off within 66 hours or so. It’s best that the subject lock themselves away during that time. Especially if the full Moon is going to hit soon! Of course, any responsible Werewolf should already be doing that every month.

Needless to say, it’s best for Werewolves to avoid the silver bullet wielding Werewolf Hunters who relentlessly track them down with a vengeance!  Although some simply want to protect the public and will try to capture a Lycanthrope first with death being the last resort.  We here at Mystic Investigations realize that Werewolves are still humans at heart. We strive for incapacitation and capture rather than the easy silver bullet-ridden death. Often super soakers full of top-flight holy water can drive a wayward wolf into a silver cage.

Is It Painful For A Human To Transform Into A Werewolf?

What Is The Transfiguration Like For A Werewolf?

werewolf-transformationYes it’s quite dreadfully painful for a Werewolf to transform on the full Moon nights.  The horrific screams can be heard blocks a way.  Fortunately the transformation takes only five minutes in most cases.  Usually only the first two and a half minutes are a living hell.  To them it feels like forever even though it’s not much time.  During the final minutes they are more Werewolf than human, and they can take the pain.  In fact it further fuels their rage, and makes them stronger as they salivate at the prospect of a fresh kill in the light of the silvery Moon.

The reverse transformation back to human form is much easier because in most cases the individual is passed out cold.  As the sun begins to rise a Werewolf weakens, and scurries away into the nearest cover whether it be brush, ditch, cave, building, etc.  It then begins to doze off to sleep.  Despite the pain of the transformation the person doesn’t wake up until many hours later.  They are quite groggy, and disoriented as they find themselves wearing nothing in an unknown location.  Many times they are covered in blood, and mud.  They feel no residual pain from the Lycanthrope transfiguration.  In fact a few hours after they awaken they feel energized, and full of life even with no sleep the night before.  The process of changing into a Werewolf rejuvenates the body at the cellular level, and is a substitute for sleep.  At least on these handful of full Moon nights.  They generally have random flashes of what happened while they were a Werewolf but not much else in the way of exact memories.

More advanced Werewolves can transform at will, and even prevent the full Moon transformation.  They might even be able to block out the pain, and remain fully aware while a Werewolf.  At the least they could remember exactly what happened.  Generally you must be a Werewolf for a long time, and practice deep meditation to achieve this.  These type of advanced Werewolves usually run in packs where they can support, and work together to control the rage that roars within.

We get this information directly from Werewolves who choose to lock themselves in a cage within the sub-basement at Mystic Investigations.  They do so for their own protection, and the safety of others they might harm.  Despite the sound proof room we can feel the vibrations of the unholy Lycan roars throughout our office building.  Every so often an unscrupulous werewolf hunter has demanded we allow them to enter, and finish off the beast.  We usually tell them where to shove it, and they move on.  Although once a gang of hunters rushed our offices, and nearly made it to the basement before we stopped them cold in their tracks.  We also get reliable Werewolf information from a Comanche Indian tribe a few towns over that happens to be Werewolves.  We keep in touch every so often about any threats in our tri-county area.
