Character arc

In School's Out, Bo started talking about "werewolves" to garner the attention of the students in her class when she was undercover as a high school teacher.

A Werewolf has not been seen in the series.

In Lost Girl: The Game

It is confirmed in the game that werewolves are different from Wolf-Shifters.


  • In Hail, Hale, Dyson was put in an outdoor enclosure with his mortal enemy, a Lupercus, and forced to fight him in a duel to the death; but it was not revealed if the lupercus had any relation to the werewolf species.
  • When an interviewer asked Kris Holden-Ried about playing werewolves in both Lost Girl and the feature film Underworld: Awakening, he pointed out: "Dyson is not so much a 'werewolf' as he is a 'shifter.' He doesn’t lose control of himself at a full moon."[1]
  • A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope, is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse and/or lycanthropic affliction via a bite or scratch from a werewolf, or some other means. This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moon. Werewolves are often attributed superhuman strength, speed, and senses, far beyond those of both wolves and men. The werewolf is generally held as a European character, although its lore spread through the world in later times. The term lycanthropy does occur in ancient Greek sources, but only in Late Antiquity, only rarely, and only in the context of clinical lycanthropy, where the patient had the ravenous appetite and other qualities of a wolf; the Greek word attains some currency only in Byzantine Greek, featuring in the 10th-century encyclopedia Suda.[2]
  • The word "lycanthrope" comes from the combination of two Ancient Greek words: lýkos (wolf)[3] and ánthropos (a human).[4]
