Please note that the werewolves depicted below are direct descendants of the Valadik (the Original werewolves). The Versipellis werewolves are descendants of Viktor Valadik. You can read more about the Valadik werewolves here.
The Versipellis werewolves are one of the least common breeds of werewolf that were known to frequent only the smaller areas of Romania - namely Transylvania - before spacing themselves out through the rest of Europe and very few parts in North America.
As many have come to learn, the legend of the vampire began in Transylvania and many a story were written about vampires in Transylvania following those legends. Bodies began showing up throughout Romania with little explanation until witnesses began detailing creatures with sharp fangs and thirsts for blood. While there was some truth that vampires were to blame for these reckless feedings, the vast majority of these deaths were caused by the population of Versipellis werewolves at that point in time.
Many believe that the Versipellis werewolves are the ultimate combination of wolves and humans; their werewolf forms consist of nothing more than their fingernails increasing into long, sharp claws and their teeth protruding and extending into fangs. Their eyes increase in intensity, resembling those of a wolf rather than a human, but otherwise they keep their human figure.
Versipellis werewolves are known to prefer the flesh of a human rather than the flesh of an animal and always eat the heart of their prey first, though they do sometimes eat more of the body, often leaving it completely unrecognizable. Most attacks are triggered by hunger, suppressed fears or suppressed aggression, all of which can drive them to kill in their wolf form as their attack will be driven by the most dominant of these emotions.
Keep in mind that they do rely primarily on the hearts of animals to survive (which can be hunted so they're warm and fresh, or can be purchased at grocery stores or from butcher shops). Granted, it's extremely difficult for them to eat animal hearts as their predatory nature demands they seek nourishment from human hearts. A great many claim to have to force themselves to eat animal hearts, for instance.
There are two categories of Versipellis werewolves: pure-blood Versipellis werewolves and regular Versipellis werewolves. Regular Versipellis werewolves can only tap into their werewolf features during the peak of the lunar cycle (the full moon) and this happens during their sleep. Despite having no control over and during their transformation, some fragments of their humanity can be embedded in their werewolf mind, namely strong ones such as fears they might have.
Pure-bloods are Versipellis werewolves that are closer to the alpha - bitten or born - up to the fourth generation beneath an alpha. Because they are close to power, their human side retains more control over their animal side and they are able to remember what happens during their transformations.
Unlike regular Versipellis werewolves, pure-bloods are able to transform any time they want and are able to access some of their werewolf powers (such as enhanced speed and strength) while in their human forms.
Like almost all werewolves, Versipellis werewolves live in packs led by an alpha (the strongest and fastest of the pack) and a beta (the alpha's right-hand; typically the second strongest and fastest). Anyone below the alpha and the beta are considered omegas.
These werewolves are created through natural reproduction or can be bitten by a Versipellis werewolf and will turn into a werewolf during the next full moon. The first change is very violent and the new werewolf will experience some memory loss. Over time, it becomes easier to phase; the first few full moons will be almost complete blackouts; this is a temporary condition.
Like all canines, spring is typically their 'mating season'; males have increased sexual urges during the spring as their inner wolf longs to reproduce. Werewolf pregnancies can last anywhere from four months to nine months with the average litter anywhere from three to five pups. Keep in mind that it is very rare for werewolves to reproduce. Miscarriages often happen during full moons, as they are near-impossible to avoid.
Male werewolves can cause multiple pregnancies in their female; should a female already be pregnant with a male werewolf's offspring, a second sexual encounter can cause a second pregnancy. The offspring created during the second sexual encounter will be physically and actually younger than those created during the first. This can be dangerous, for if the female goes into labour with the first pregnancy while the second pregnancy is still not developed enough to endure labour, it can result in the offspring from the second pregnancy to be born prematurely or die during the birth.
Werewolves can age normally (at the rate of a human being), but if the number of vampires in their area by far exceeds the number of werewolves, they have been known to grow at a more rapid pace. Aging four years in a single year is not unheard of in these instances, for example.
Werewolves can reproduce with other werewolves and any human-like species (and will not inherit any other abilities) but cannot reproduce with chimeras, hellhounds, kanimas, kitsunes, nogitsunes, shapeshifters, sirens, skinwalkers, vampires or werejaguars.

ALPHA POWERS: Alpha's are able to possess abilities that are unique to their position in the pack. Beta's, too, are able to possess all of these abilities, though to a lesser extent:
• COMMANDING: The ability to make others follow your commands.
• SHIELDING: Ignoring commands from higher-ranked wolves.
COMPULSION RESISTANCE: A werewolf has the ability to resist compulsion and glamouring from a vampire.
MATING: Werewolves cannot imprint like Quileute werewolves. Instead, they find a being that they find sexually appealing and alluring and choose them as their mate. Should one member of a couple die, the other will be able to choose another mate after the grieving process. In some cases, werewolves are unable to find all of the qualities it both requires and desires in one being, so it will be able to take on two, or even three different mates. Werewolves are able to mate for life with any species.
MEMORY TRANSFERENCE: By inserting their claws into the back of another being's neck, a werewolf is able to transfer memories between each other, though this can be quite painful for the being on the receiving end.
PAIN TRANSFERENCE: Werewolves have the ability to transfer pain from one being to themselves in order to lessen their pack mate's suffering or to assist it in battle.
SPEED / STRENGTH: Werewolves have enhanced strength and speed, stamina, agility, reflexes, durability, rapid healing, and heightened senses. It is known that they are fast and strong while in their human form though are stronger while in their wolf form. They heal themselves at a very advanced rate except while in human form. They can hear and smell with crystal clarity at such a heightened state that even the newest werewolf is able to smell fear, lust, and even the small subconscious olfactory scents associated with lying.
SIRE POWERS: A werewolf also possesses abilities over any werewolf that he or she creates (sires). These abilities include and are limited to:
• CALLING:Wolves the ability to call their progeny; this will mean that the wolf is forced to return to their maker even if they do not want to. During a calling, the maker has to say the name of their progeny, the progeny will feel a shiver and, if the maker chooses to, become aware of where their maker is.
• COMMANDS: A maker of a werewolf (or an alpha of a pack) can make their progeny do anything they want to, and this is enforced by saying "as your alpha/sire, I command you to...". However, this ability has no effect if the progeny has been released. This ability is also known as a 'sire bond'.
• RELEASING: The sire or the alpha has the ability to release the werewolf that they created from their power simply by stating so.
UNIQUE ABILITIES: Werewolves rarely possess unique abilities but every once in a while a werewolf is able to possess an ability that makes it more unique than others. Keep in mind, it is impossible for any werewolf to possess more than one of the following abilities:
• CREATING MIST: The ability to create a thick fog to hide scents.
• FULL SHIELD: Creating a “blind-spot” in a being's ability to sense.
• LICKING: Healing supernatural beings' wounds by licking them.
• MENTAL SHIELD: Shielding yourself from other mental abilities.
• SHARING: Sharing your ability/strength by letting one drink your blood.
VENOM: Werewolves are the most dangerous enemies of vampires due to their venomous bite, which is lethal to them. Werewolves are also hardwired to kill vampires on sight in their wolf form, though they still hunt human prey whenever there are no vampires to kill.
GILBERT DEVICE: Invented by Jonathan Gilbert, the device was a weapon designed to emit a high-frequency noise that could only be heard by vampires and werewolves and, as a result, is extremely painful to their ears. The Originals, however, are immune to its effects.
LOCOWEED: Locoweed, a plant that is violet or white in colour, can be ingested by werewolves to intensify emotions. This makes a werewolf even more aggressive, especially during sexual intercourse. This can be used as a weakness if it is used to purposely irritate a werewolf.
MAGIC: Witches are able to curse and inflict supernatural aneurysms that cause the blood vessels of werewolves to explode. This is extremely painful to werewolves, but because they are able to heal quickly, this will not kill them.
MISTLETOE: One of the earliest uses of mistletoe was as a werewolf repellent and can be deadly to all animals, including werewolves. Eating a single leaf can kill a full grown werewolf. Coming in close contact, or inhaling the fumes of burning mistletoe can also be fatal.
MOUNTAIN ASH: Mountain ash can form an impenetrable barrier to keep supernatural creatures - mainly werewolves - in or out. It can also modify their behaviour - keeping them from causing trouble. It is often said that being surrounded by mountain ash feels equal to being sedated.
SILVER: The most well known of werewolf weaknesses is their extreme allergy to silver. Silver takes hours to effectively poison and kill a werewolf, but even the first contact a werewolf has with silver is painful and uncomfortable. Silver nitrate is known to be more potent on a werewolf.
WOLFSBANE: Various methods have existed for removing the werewolf form. The most common is by ingesting wolfsbane (monkshood); a type of flower. It will kill off the lycanthropic cells and can be extremely painful. This is very rare to occur since wolfsbane can also be poisonous to werewolves. Should the werewolf cells not die before a reaction to the werewolf poison sets in, the werewolf will die. When placed on the skin, wolfsbane will burn the flesh and when injected (when mixed with water), will weaken a werewolf physically.
Werewolves on Bittersweet Forever have certain distinctive characteristics that set them apart from other fictional werewolves. If you see a characteristic
