I originally conceived my main character when I was 12 years old and imagined her as a werewolf. The problem is that werewolves, along with vampires, zombies, witches, etc. are seen everywhere nowadays and I'm worried that people will write off my story as "just another werewolf story". The thing is, the story is not even about werewolves. In fact, she is the only main character who is a werewolf and presents its complications and its benefits. The way I imagined the werewolf to be in my story is less like the traditional werewolves from European folklore and more like the "wolf gods" you see in Princess Mononoke and Spice and Wolf. Basically, large wolves who descended from wolf deities. I incorporated some typical werewolf traits so that they can change humans into werewolves and so on. But should I stick with this or make her another type of fantasy creature? I was thinking of making her a pixie, but I feel like that might repel male readers. So what fantasy creatures should be in the spotlight now? Are werewolves really that overdone? What can be done to spice them up?
