Wolf-Shifters are Fae species capable of changing between a human and a wolf form at will. They are also able to change only a part of their body, such as their eyes or teeth. Even in human form, a Wolf-Shifter possesses superhuman physical prowess that can be used to overpower human enemies and Fae.

Wolf-Shifters appear to have an affinity for a warrior life, as those that have appeared in the series have all been warriors or mercenaries for at least part of their lives.

The modern term, Lycan, now exists as another description for Wolf-Shifters. Lycans are an advanced form of wolf shapeshifters that have much greater control over their ability to transform and use their wide range of senses and powers.

Trivia

  • Although in one episode a wolf (Dyson) was said to mate for life, this is actually a romantic notion. In nature only the Alpha wolf of the pack is the wolf that breeds and he mates with an Alpha female. The two stay mated until the female dies, after which the Alpha male finds another strong female in the pack to mate with and her ability to breed elevates her to Alpha status.[1][2]
  • There are many types of wolves in nature.[3]
