Blighted Werewolf [Entry #7]
Category: Creatures
Installation: Awakening
When a man in West Hill told me about his encounter with a blighted werewolf, I was inclined to believe him. Although werewolves may be abominations of a sort - wolves possessed by rage demons, or so the story goes - it is true that their bodies still live. The Blight is known to corrupt bears and wolves in addition to humans, elves, and dwarves, so it is conceivable that any living creature, even a werewolf, is at risk.

The man saw the beast ambush a bear, springing from the shadows with such speed that it seemed a blur. The bear was dead within seconds.

I thank the Maker that I have never even seen a run-of-the-mill werewolf. I am sure I never want to encounter one that is blighted.
