Werewolves and Shifters like them are pack animals. The packs are made up of one Alpha and multiple Betas with those known as Omegas, The lone wolves, being without a pack. The Omegas are weaker than the other wolves and are easily picked off since they do not have the backing of a pack. With this in mind the Omegas must remain hidden or they seek out packs to help them survive.
You can tell what a Werewolf is by their eyes. Alphas have Red Eyes. Betas and Omegas have Yellow Eyes until they take an innocent life. Than their eyes turn Blue.
To become an Alpha you need to challenge the current Alpha to a fight. If you beat him or her you take their power. This can also be achieved by killing them. The other way of become an Alpha is by being a True Alpha. These are created by strength of character or force of will alone. True Alpha's are VERY rare so odds are your character will not be allowed to be one.
Werewolves are created via birth or by being bitten or scratched by an Alpha.
In this game we have two types of Werewolves. The first group is completely controlled by the full moon. The full moon controls their change and they are powerless to stop it without the help of the Moonlight Ring which isn't in the game yet. Think The Vampire Diaries and the Originals Werewolves.
The 2nd type are those that can change by will during the whole month. Sometimes this is a full change or just a partial one. Control can be learned with this group and the Full Moon is not needed for them to be able to change. However if they are still struggling to control their change when the Full Moon happens they will be at the mercy of it.
Some packs are made up of multiple species and just not Werewolves. This is accomplished by the human for example having a close connection, friendship, with the groups Alpha. When this happens sometimes that person is able to be brought into the pack without being a Werewolf.
In this game we have Three Packs with a possibility of a fourth. The current packs in the game are listed below.
