The werewolf is a widespread concept in European folklore, existing in many variants which are related by a common development of a Christian interpretation of underlying Indo-European mythology which developed during the medieval period. From the early modern period, werewolf beliefs also spread to the New World with colonialism. Belief in werewolf develops parallel to the belief in witches, in the course of the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Like the witchcraft trials as a whole, the trial of supposed werewolves emerges in what is now Switzerland(especially the Valais and Vaud) in the early 15th century and spreads throughout Europe in the 16th, peaking in the 17th and subsiding by the 18th century. The persecution of werewolves and the associated folklore is an integral part of the "witch-hunt" phenomenon, albeit a marginal one, accusations of werewolfery being involved in only a small fraction of witchcraft trials. During the early period, accusations of lycanthropy (transformation into a wolf) were mixed with accusations of wolf-riding or wolf-charming. The case of Peter Stumpp (1589) led to a significant peak in both interest in and persecution of supposed werewolves, primarily in French-speaking and German-speaking Europe. The phenomenon persisted longest in Bavaria and Austria, with persecution of wolf-charmers recorded until well after 1650, the final cases taking place in the early 18th century in Carinthia and Styria.
After the end of the witch-trials, the werewolf became of interest in folklore studies and in the emerging Gothic horror genre; werewolf fiction as a genre has pre-modern precedents in medieval romances (e.g. Bisclavret and Guillaume de Palerme) and develops in the 18th century out of the "semi-fictional" chap book tradition. The trappings of horror literature in the 20th century became part of the horror and fantasy genre of modern pop culture.
In a much more real legend, werewolves apeard first time in Dacia ( now Romania). In ancient times, people belived that the supreme god that created all universes, came on this planet to live here, everytime when he decide, he reincarnate himself on another planet in this univers or in another one. He came in Dacia because he love the nature and dacians where knows for their strong connexion with nature. That god teached dacians how to transform themself in werewolves so they can defend themself and to defend the nature. They already had a strong connection with wolves, they saw wolves as their brother not like another animal. The god created an Order, The Order of Werewolves Knights! The legend say's that dacians never losed a war after that, even against romans they always won, even that war that in history books say's that the dacians lost that fight, well actually the dacians just leaved the romans to colonise a few parts from Dacia, so they can have a strong commercial connection. Since than, werewolves started to change themself, to evolve and involve, depending of the situation. There are more types of werewolves, some of them are :
Lycanthrope - one of the species that cant control themself, its an involved race, you can kill it only by using a silver weapon or to decapitate it. They dont have the specific wolf head, their head looks more human, they have fur, claws and fangs, but they dont have a tail or werewolf shape, they have a human shape.
The "normal" werewolf - the most used type of werewolf in pictures from our day's, the 3 m tall (9 feet) creature, with a head more like a wolf, entire body covered with fur, tail, they can control themself.They are imune to silver
The wolf werewolf - the wolf werewolf is not like that "normal" werewolf how other think, wolf werewolf is a wolf with powers of a werewolf, they are the best friend of other werewolves species, they folow their friend no matter what, even they are bad but they love their wolf friend, they will protect and help them, are very loyal. They look more like a wolf in their werewolf form. They are imune to silver. And those wolves werewolves that can be hurt by silver are not wolves werewolves, are a combination between a wolf/dog + werewolf blood and a demon or angel( angels and demons are both having good and evil caracters so there are good angels, bad angels, good demons, bad demons).
Untailed werewolf - its like the "normal" werewolf, except that they dont have a tail and they can be hurt by silver.
The werewolf king - the first race of werewolves created by that god from Dacia, they had an aspect more like a "normal" werewolf, but they had wings too, they can control themself, they are protectors of nature and humans too, even humans are destroing nature, the werewolves kings want to create a strong connection between humans and nature so they can stop the armaghedon that will be made by human hand. This race is the most powerful race of werewolves, they dont have only the powers that werewolves have, they have more, and even the powers that other werewolves have them too, the werewolf king have those powers increased, are much more powerful, they can use telekinesis, telepathy, super strangth( they can lift more than 10 tons with one hand), super speed( the legend say's that they can reach even the speed of light), like others they are not affraid of fire, because their fur cant burn, they can control the fire , water, earth, wind, energy, wood and metal elements, they can breathe under water. The god that gaved them those powers, is so powerful that even if there was an almighty christian god, he would be like a small and weak creature coparing with that ancient god, because the legends say's that he font have infinite power like how christians say about their god, that god have powers far beyond infinite. Another legend say's that he is still among us, waithing and trying to help this planet and save it from destruction, he will or rule the planet or if he wont gonna be able to rule it, he will save it as an small army general, i say if he will can not because he would not be able to conquer it, but because he will want to be accepted not feared by others, he wants peace and love, not destruction. The werewolf king is imune at silver and any other type of weapon and elemnt, not even decapitation can kill them, the legends say's that only the god that created them can kill them and a special type of weapon made by that god so it can be used if a werewolf king would become evil. they can change theself even in a wolf body, they can retract their wings inside their body and use them in their 3 types of shape - human, werewolf, wolf.
