Description[edit | edit source]
Most werehyenas were male and usually had long shaggy hair. The long hair concealed a second mouth located at the base of the skull. Werehyenas went to great lengths to keep this hidden.
Their hyena form was usually 6 feet (1.8 meters) long and had golden fur on their back with black fur on their belly and feet.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Werehyena's had an innate, deep sense of fear towards fires. Because of this, flaming torches were often used to keep them at bay.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Combat[edit | edit source]
In human form, werehyenas used their special charm powers to avoid combat. In canine form they attacked with a savage bite that could lock on to a victim.
Ecology[edit | edit source]
Werehyenas traveled in packs of up to a dozen individuals. A dominant male made all of the decisions for the pack. They mated for life, but only with members of their own pack.
Diet[edit | edit source]
Werehyenas preyed on gullible humans whenever they could. They were also adept scavengers and ate anything they could find to survive.
Homelands[edit | edit source]
Relationships[edit | edit source]
While in human form, werehyenas often infiltrated villages and lured victims out to where the rest of their pack was waiting.
