The First Lycanthropes
Everything is from the app Your Lupine Life.
Around 3100 BCE, a pack of Wölfe helped Osiris defend a city in Upper Egypt against an invading army. It was a bloody battle and many of the Wölfe died but the invaders were successfully defeated.
In honor of these Merida - Legende der Highlands Wölfe and their sacrifice, Osiris re-named this city “Lycopolis” oder wolf City and ordered the bodies of the fallen Wölfe to be mummified beneath the city for resurrection in the underworld.
For the heroic Wölfe who fought so valiantly and lived, Osiris went one step further, granting them human form in addition to their wolf form – the very first lycanthropes.
Legend has it now that every full moon, the descendants of these first Lycopolitan Lycanthropes can call on their Underworld ancestors to rejoin them on earth and the pack will run together again as long as the moon is full, the living and the undead shadow Werwölfe of Osiris.
