Just as a Werewolf is a monstrous wolf like humanoid so is the very rare Werecat which is a terrifying cat like humanoid. However that is where the similarities end. Werecats are far more powerful than Werewolves, and even most vampires when their origins lie in that of the Earthly Gods either directly descended or indirectly through magic. This is the case most of time. A bite or scratch from a Werecat will not turn a human into a Werecat because there is no Werecat virus like that of the Werewolf Lycanthrope virus or even the vampire virus. Werecats come in many varieties which are referred to by their species specific name. In addition a Werecat is not the same as a Demi-Cat aka Neko, or Human-Feline Hybrids. Such creatures are unable to transform their appearance.
Most species of Werecats have the same general characteristics such as the ability to transform not only into a Werecat form but also a complete cat form indistinguishable from any other animal. This transformation is not beholden to the full Moon or any other astrological phenomenon They can go from human appearance to Werecat form at will. They are generally coherent in their Werecat form. Although their emotions are amplified with violent anger usually being at the top of the list. In full animal form they are less in charge of their mental faculties, and will begin to lose their humanity the longer they stay in full cat form. The major varieties of Werecats have their origins in the various ancient cultures of Earth. We will posting a series of articles outlining each Werecat. The next post will inform you of the first Werecats who are considered the royalty of the Werecat world. They are the decedents of the Egyptian feline Goddess Bastet. Close behind are children of Sekhmet the Egyptian Lion Goddess who are considered royalty to the darker forces of Werecat evil, and fight to enforce their status as royals as well.
