Lately in fantasy stories I have seen a growing trend of urban settings where all mythical creatures are real. This means the fae, werewolves, witches, vampires, etc. all live alongside humans whether people know about them or not. This works well for some stories while others seem to overdo it. In my story I have two different types of "werewolves". The first are the natural werewolves which are called lycans. They came from an ancient pagan race that traveled all over the world as nomads and made some kind of spell (I'm still working out the origins) so that they could transform into large wolf-like creatures. They can change at will, must change on the full moon, have an aversion to silver, and have a very limited control of some magic. Werewolves are artificial lycans that scientists made a long time ago. Unlike lycans, who can control or at lease have some sort of balanced relationship with their wolf side, werewolves are ruled by their wolves and spread their infection through a bite. Changing into a lycan is a long and much different process that most lycans don't remember anymore. There are more werewolves than lycans since most lycans were killed off in a mass genocide known as The Purge many years ago. So, does the two different types of werewolves idea sound good? Does anyone have any suggestions on it? And are there any websites or books I can look at with different werewolf myths that will help while I develop them both?
