How To Terminate A Werewolf?
Werewolves in their monstrous form can only be killed by silver bullets and related implements. There’s also being overwhelmed by holy artifacts that directly attack their demonic based DNA. This includes holy water which can burn a werewolf. However, it would take a major fire hose load or tank of the stuff to actually eradicate an unholy wolf of this nature. Complete incineration in holy fire would do the trick but regular fire would work with a bit more effort. Just be sure the corpse is completely disintegrated! The use of highly poisonous Wolfsbane is another option. The delivery system is key. This can include lacing some bait, shooting the werewolf with wolfsbane darts, or even a liquid delivery often mixed with holy water. Beheading has been known to work but there is a slight chance of the head regrowing an entirely new body! Some powerful Practitioners Of Magic can manipulate lunar energies and actually return a werewolf to human form thereby neutralizing the immediate threat!
Werewolves In Their Human Form
In their human form Werewolves are more vulnerable to standard destructive attacks but they still heal rapidly. Some of the supernatural methods above are actually less effective as the demonic elements of their physiology lie deeper than in their wolf form. There are small windows of opportunity for the person to seek treatment by a paranormal professional. In Werewolf form, things like silver are far more devastating along with nobody wanting to aid an out of control monster out for flesh and blood!
The Moment Of Werewolf Death
Once The deed is done and all hope of restorative powers are lost then it is time for a Werewolf to meet his or her maker! When no full Moon is present then a Werewolf will let out a final hellish howl and display a bright enchanted eye glow as they return to human form. This glow indicates their cellular bulk being burnt into metaphysical energy that might normally heal and resurrect them from serious injury. Said energy literally goes to demons to feed off of on Earth, in the Underworld, or Hell! This mass-energy production often provides the last fail-safe mechanism to save the werewolf’s life. Although, when silver or heavy use of wolfsbane and religious artifacts are in play the demonic Werewolf Virus, aka Lycanthrope Virus, is destroyed! The virus disintegrates and restores the DNA and the body to full human form. The glorious glow in their eyes flickers out as they lie in a pool of residual cellular goo and a giant mass of shed fur.
The former werewolf is now a human whose soul is released to Heaven. They are forgiven for any sins committed in monstrous wolf form. They don’t go to hell! If evil acts were done in human form then they might see a stay in Purgatory or some other pre-heaven dimension. Of course, this may be true of other evil individuals as well. Interestingly enough there is no chance of a ghost forming as a mad monster can’t face true psychological trauma. If the Werewolf was a rare disciplined one who was able to control their transformations and stay intelligently conscious then there is the possibility of a demonic spirit being born separately of the human soul. Said spirit could eventually become a Wendigo! Most modern werewolf packs are aware of this and often employ witches to create potions and spells to prevent this upon death.
Human Form Werewolf Death
When werewolves die in human form the eyes glow brightly as mentioned above. There is less metaphysical energy being produced and the light glow flickers away quickly. This indicates the final death of the human and the Werewolf! There is no chance of Wendigo formation but they could become a ghost if their death or life, in general, was deeply traumatic in some way. As a ghost, they would have no special powers related to their former werewolf status. Their body may display damage unlike one returning from werewolf form that will appear healed of all damage. Such an appearance is deceptive since the stripping of the demonic Lycanthrope virus deeply damages the human DNA. That is why a cure for the werewolf curse is thought to be impossible!
What Happens If A Werewolf In Human Form Dies Just As The Full Moon Rises?
Presuming the Lycanthrope in human form wasn’t killed by silver or some manner of religious artifacts, then a resurrection could occur. Keep in mind, without silver, or religious artifacts, it would take a lot to kill a human who’s a Lycanthrope since they still have the ability to rapidly heal, and theoretically can’t catch any of the standard human diseases. If they’re already in a state of dying the Werewolf transformation will generally cure them of injuries, and serious diseases. Each month’s Full Moon provides a level of cellular regeneration and eradication of any degenerative conditions. Even an amputated limb will grow back! There are even a few ancient reports of beheaded werewolves growing a new body from their head! However, the aging process will slowly continue giving the average Werewolf a lifespan of approximately 175 years with a maximum of 225 years of age. If they’re at the end of their natural lifespan then there might be a slim chance that the full Moon will cause their fresh corpse to reanimate but they would only be buying a month or two of life.
There is some debate as to what the time frame is of a human Werewolf corpse for possible resurrection by Full Moon. Most of the evidence seems to indicate that they have little more than 24 hours whether they’re lying on a slab in a morgue, buried 6 feet under, or anywhere else for that matter. In the case of an embalmed body, they will come to life as a Werewolf but when the sun rises they will die again, and stay dead this time. Some with connections to practitioners of magic may utilize Moon Goddesses and focused lunar energies to provide healing even from the dreaded silver, holy water, holy fire, etc.
