There are multiple stories on how the first werewolf came to be. The most widely accepted is that of the engagement between god of gods, Zeus, and a cruel and brutal King Lycaon of Greece. In order to restore order and balance on Earth, Zeus came down to speculate King Lycaon’s behavior. To his surprise, Lycaon’s cruelty was utterly epic, in that he attempted to sabotage and test Zeus’s authority. As a punishment, Zeus turned Lycaon into an enraged beast, giving him the werewolf’s curse. King Lycaon is known to be the first original werewolf on Earth, and every victim turned by him is an original descendant. These first generation descendants lack human instinct, and often time, their behavior is overwhelmed through primal rage.
