Does anyone know of a site where I can learn more about Lycans, or to meet people like me?

I always thought that Lycanthropy was a mental disorder in which one thought themselves a wolf. However, I could be wrong. There are actually quite a few Kindred here. You just need to know where to look.

I have no concrete idea of what a lycanthrope is...My own guardian says I am one,I asked the Grim Reaper he says I am one too. I asked for more, but he said I would learn as I grew...But that just isn't enough. Pherhaps, anyone could have a more concrete idea of what a true lycanthrope is?

Lycanthropy is actually a disease. Soemone being a werewolf, while possible for that to happen, is nothing like in the movies. If you wanting to know how to become a werewolf like in the movies...then your barking up the wrong tree.

Wolftrest and I have both stated that lycanthropy is a mental disorder. In this disorder the individual thinks himself or herself to be a wolf or that they can physically shift into one. There is a type of Kindred known as a Therian, an individual born with the spirit of an animal instead of that of a human. They are capable of turning into their animal form on the astral, but not the physical. They claim to be able to feel their animal appendages such as tails, paws, fur, etc. However, they don't actually have them on the physical. I believe this may be what you are both referring to.

Yeah, Cali and Wolftrest are right, and if you are looking for Other Kin there are a few here. You might also want to check out otherkin.org or otherkin.net

They are both good sites that have a lot of useful info that might be helpful to you.

Lycan is short for the term Lycanthrope, which is a person who takes the form of a wolf, either through astrally or other means of changing/shifting. Lycanthropy is the study or changing of a lycanthrope. Lycanthropy deals with only wolves, yet it is misunderstood to deal with other creatures also.

Unlike Therians, a Lycan may inherit the wolf need to feed on a certain food type. Most lycans, tend to feed on raw meat. The type of meat depends on the type of wolf. A forest wolf may prefer small game while a valley wolf may prefer fish or duck, and a mountain fur may prefer small game that is hard to find like snow rabbits. If a creature is called a werepry than they are consider a half wolf half vamp, so they may feed upon blood and meat.

Therianthropy deals with many creatures. A therian is a person who has the personality of a creature yet does not change into that creature. A therian however may change on the astral plane but never change/shift any other way. Usually a therian is the same creature as the person?s spiritually creature.

Overall, a lycan is a type of therian, sort of like an upgrade therian. Lycans can shift many ways, while therians can only shift astrally or not at all.

A Lycan is a term used in fiction to describe a were. A were is not a Therian it is a Kin species all it's own. I do not know where you got this info of yours but it is starting to sound like a lot of role-play nonsense to me. Frankly your whole story sounds like it came out of a novel. People wonder why so much rp goes on at this site. Here my friends is a shining example.

I agree with Black_Hex. Honey do not believe everything you hear on the internet. Okay.

*We call ourselves Lycans because stupid Hollywood has made people think that "Werewolves" are these nasty, ugly beasts who eat humans.
