A WERE WOLF Lycanthropy is the ability or power of a human being to undergo transformation into a wolf, or to gain wolf-like characteristics. The term comes from Greek lykánthropos (λυκάνθρωπος): λύκος, lýkos ("wolf") + άνθρωπος, ánthrōpos ("human").  The word lycanthropy is sometimes used generically for any transformation of a human into animal form, though the precise term for that is technically " therianthropy ". Sometimes, "zoanthropy" is used instead of "therianthropy".  The word has also been linked to Lycaon , a king of Arcadia who, according to Ovid 's Metamorphoses , was turned into a ravenous wolf in retribution for attempting to serve human flesh (his own son) to visiting Zeus in an attempt to disprove the god's divinity.
