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.

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.

Well, as it was described to me by someone in his 90's at the time, who was, himself, a Wolf;

"Real wolves tend to come in three stages, some of us call 'the generation gap' - you have the youngest of the breed, simply known as 'werewolf', the second generation up being 'lycanthrope' or 'lycan', and then you have the older and oldest ones... the ones who have learned to fully control their gift-- the Lupin. Obviously, as time goes by, and we have to learn more self control, we therefore become stronger, thus becoming the next generation back, so to speak."

Mind you, that's just how it was said to me, so don't quote Me on it.

Werewolf means shapeshift. That info comes from a Shaman.

I believe that the Werewolf and Lycan are the same thing, the term used is the only difference here.

Hollywood uses the term interchangeably through their movie depending on the director making it.
