Happy Halloween, friends!
Today's comic dips a little into the background of wolfpeople in the S&F universe. The particulars of their existence will already be familiar to some of you... especially those who have read the extensive universe guide in the Underground RPG guidebook! (Which is available in physical form here or in ebook form here!)
But for those who don't know, wolfpeople -- often referred to eroneously as "werewolves" by humans -- are indeed wolfpeople all the time. There are no humans who temporarily transform into wolfpeople by the light of the full moon. Or by anything else, for that matter!
The one thing that can turn a human into a wolfperson is, you know... vampire bites. (Wait, really? Yes, really.) More specifically, some humans have an allergic reaction to vampire spit that causes them to mutate into wolfpeople... and that transformation is generally permanent. However, while some wolfpeople are former humans, the bulk of them are just the descendants of other wolfpeople. (Such is the case with Vulfie, if you were wondering.)
Deep lore for a goofy joke! It's the S&F way.
Anyhoo, today may be Halloween proper, but there's a bit more of this story ahead. Come back on Wednesday for our next comic!
