Short for lycanthrope, a lycan is often mistaken for a werewolf. A lycan has the ability to turn into a wolf, or any type of dog. A lycan's usual appearance is a human's body and a wolf head.

Also known as a shape shifter, shifters have the ability to shift into any form or animal. In most stories or myths, the number one form for a shifter to use is a wolf. They slightly resemble werewolves, but don't unwillingly change on a full moon, in fact, the moon does not affect them at all.

A human that has the ability to willingly or unwillingly change into the appearance of a wolf. They are easily mistaken for a lycan or lycanthrope. A werewolf is different in every story and myth, but in most, they are affected by the full moon. Some werewolves have different appearances, like a man's body and a wolf head, or just a simple large wolf. Usually, the werewolf cannot control itself when in wolf form on a full moon.
