What is the difference between a Lycan and a Werewolf. Are they different creatures or are they the same.
Which one has more power.
lycanthropy is the transformation from human to a werewolf. So, the word Lycan is a short word for lycanthropy. Both are related to each other and technically, are the same.
From my side, I would say that Lycanthropy is the main category in which Werewolves come under as a sub-category. Lycanthropy includes an archaic definition where it involves altered behaviour and a particular wolf-like state of mind. Werewolves are pure beasts.
I'm in tune with BloodRoseX on this one
In my opinion ... commonly mistaken as a werewolf, the Lycan is a more advanced species that, unlike the werewolf, can for the most part control their transformations. A werewolf can only change under the full moon, and cannot control that.
Werewolf means shapeshift. That info comes from a Shaman.
