Werepires are an extremley rare race that descended from vampiric wolves that roamed the lands protecting it from other threats. They are said to be the true 'skin-walkers' and have extrodonary powers that are more then a vampire and lycanthrope combined.
Legend of the Skin-WalkerEdit
In the Navajo legend in Polar Twilight-Polar Night, a skin-walker is a person with the supernatural ability to turn into wolves. Similar lore can be found in cultures throughout the world and is often referred to as shapeshifting by anthropologists.
Possibly the best documented skinwalker beliefs are those relating to the Navajo yee naaldlooshii (literally "with it, he goes on all fours" in the Navajo language). A yee naaldlooshii is one of several varieties of Navajo witch (specifically an ’ánt’įįhnii or practitioner of the Witchery Way, as opposed to a user of curse-objects (’adagąsh) or a practitioner of Frenzy Way (’azhįtee)). Technically, the term refers to an ’ánt’įįhnii who is using his (rarely her) powers to travel in animal form. In some versions men or women who have attained the highest level of priesthood then commit the act of killing an immediate member of their family, and then have thus gained the evil powers that are associated with skinwalkers. The House of Foxx used the same tactics of the witches and reversed the curse to combat the threat of evil. The dead warriors came back to life as 'vulkodlak'.
The word varcolac is a loan from Slavic (cf. Bulgarian varkolak, vulkodlak, Greek vrykolakas), meaning "werewolf" (etymologically "Wolf's Fur"). The witches were forced out and they took the form of dracos(dragons). There are many kind of werepires. Some are protectors and others are the opposite. They differ from the other forklore characters that are read about and heard of.
Werepires (in human form) are normally extremely beautiful, this is for attracting their prey, humans or animals. Their skin is pale which has a blush to it because their hearts pump blood (though it beats faster than a normal human heart) and their heights vary from 5 to 7 feet tall with a toned and thick muscled body, similar to that of a bodybuilder. However thier tremendous height balances thier large muscle mass so that they do not look out of proportion and varies from extremley cold to withstand very hot weather to 110° degrees to withstand severe cold weather. Their scent is very appealing to humans and animals who get close enough to smell them. Werepire eyes are a garden-like green; a red eye color indicates that a werepire is upset or something has occured to make them mad. The color becomes onyx black when a werepire is in the mood to kill either in revenge or to avenge someone close to them. However when a vampire's eyes are a blue, it indicates that a werepire has found peace with the situation and is calm. If their eyes are white, that means the have mercy on whoever.
The wolves themselves vary in physical appearance, just like their human counterparts. The "monstrous size" of these creatures is emphasized again and again. It is also noticeable that the human form changes when the werewolf mutation begins to occur. The mutation makes the boys' and girls' bodies accelerate to that of a full grown man, with the aging stopping at around the physical age of 25 at the max 16 at the minimum.
They have all the speed and strengths of both vampires and lycans(werewolfs) and also have the vampires special abilties as well as the lycanthropes. They are extremley hard to kill, but not immpossible. The sounds that the wolves make are also linked with both strength and ferocity, for example, their growls are described repeatedly as "like thunder".
The transformation into a werepire is both painful mentally and phisically. They soon pass out in hibernation and then die then awake 'anew'. Once the change is complete, the werepire is like a normal human being, but smarter and tougher. They also are venomous. They are human in the day time and at night they are wolves which some would descibe as 'vampiric werewovles'.
Sometime during his life during the Euro-Afro-Native tribal intergrations, a coven of vampires came to live in Arizona near Pheonix. By nature, the werewolves and vampires were enemies. But the leader Elijah Foxx, Illishiah's great-grandfather, was able to negotiate a peace treaty with them: as long as the Cullens didn't bite anyone or come on the Navajo's land, the werewolves wouldn't attack them or reveal them to the humans. They lived together as one and became the House of Foxx. They fought off the evil witches by using their spells against them and chased them out of the Americas. The descendants after them, born or ressurected, carried the gene of the werepire and once they hit puberty they would fully become werepires and defend the land from all types af evil, using the evil powers for holiness as it should be used.
Note: The Cullen household became werepires after they partake in the cummunion of the new covenant to begin the 'Neo Years' and drank some of Elijah's pure immortal blood as he lay in his death bed. The blood, he tells them, will make them "the future" and is their only hope of being strong enough to destroy the powerful witches. After Carlise and his famliy and their new allies leave along with the rest of Elijah's household and others, Elijah welcomes Heaven and detonates a case of explosives on his ship, obliterating it in the harbor and the ports.
The Quileute wolf pack of La Push become werepires after evil vampires attack the village and Sam and others are the only survivors of the attacks. The bites and scratches from the vampires should've killed the youths, but since their genes were too strong, they survived and used these new gifts to protect the lands from evil vampires and other dark forces.
Later Jacob is told of the true origin of his people and a new covenant begins. Sam and Jake's pack become co-exsistent and they team up with Illi's team to destroy the dracos in the end. The werepire race lives on and remains to modern day afterwards.
The person must either be on the verge of death and bitten by a werepire or born naturally by either a.i. or natural birth. They can also be vampires who drink of the royal blood of the werewolf in order to change or the werewolf is turned by a vampire after being bitten. They transform into the wolves to patrol the lands and surrounding areas at night and to fight evil enemies such as the dracos. They retain their human forms for daily ruetine stuff. Also noted that if in cummunion and the being drank of this covenant they too became a werepire or also know as 'The Future'.
Bitten by the otherEdit
A human or werewolf is bitten, and venom from glands inside the vampire's mouth is injected into the bloodstream. Depending upon "how much venom is in the bloodstream, and how close the venom is until it enters the heart", the transformation could be anywhere from 3–5 days, but it is interesting to note that if directly injected into the heart then it could only take 2 days. During that time, the human will endure indescribable pain," The warmth inside my heart got more and more real, warmer and warmer. Hotter. The heat was so real it was hard to believe I was imagining it. Hotter. Uncomfortable now. Too hot. Much, much too hot" as described by Bella Cullen as the venom slowly circulates through the blood and eventually reaches the heart. Once the venom is injected, it is described as being "...the beginning of the greatest pain you will ever understand. The venom then has to make its way all through the body. Next through the heart, and it will pump again and again in the heart until it starts meeting itself in the veins. Then it will burn all the veins until the heart stops beating. It moves slower than blood because it’s thicker. Each beat of the heart can only push it so far. The changing/burning process is slow. The venom has to saturate every cell in the body before it ends. The werewolf, however, is only in pain for about 10 to 15 minutes due to the genes of the wolf, causing them to only experience a more physical pain than when they first phased into a werewolf. Once the alter is complete, the werewolf is now a newly spawned werepire. Sam and his pack only took 3 days to change after the incident where it only took Bella only 2.
Drinking from the otherEdit
If a vampire drinks the blood of a werewolf, a variety of venom-based fluids that existed to perpetuate bodily functions similar to those that existed when the vampire was still human - even many functions that blood serves in humans are carried on in some form in this manner- become burning hot. Whereas they endured a physical pain they now endure severe mental pains that werewolves do when they phase from human to werewolf. This can take up to 3 days maximum. The once vampire is now 'alive again' as Carlise puts.
Usually an equal balance of werewolf genetics and vampire genetics. In some cases, one set of genes will be more powerful, resulting in a slightly more advanced werepire. If the vampire gene is stronger or more dominant, the hybrid will have a stronger craving for blood. If the werewolf gene is stronger or more dominant, the hybrid will notice more of an affinity with the lunar cycle. To become a werewolf, you must be introduced to the alien genetic material which will manifest itself within the host. The same goes for becoming a vampire, or have the venom of a vampire enter your bloodstream and spread throughout your body. Depending on the amount and the person who has been infected, the change can take anywhere from a few minutes, to a few days. Never in my 623 years of life, have i seen a transformation take longer than four days. Werepires can control their thirst and hunger and perform under a humane thought process and have animal instincts at the same time. Illishiah is more human dominant then he is werepire so his human genes are 20% more than his werepire side.
The issue of imprinting is also critical as this is how the shapeshifter finds a soulmate: "It's not like love at first sight, really. It's more like... gravity moves. When you see her, suddenly it's not the earth holding you here anymore. She does. And nothing matters more than her."
Once two people are imprinted, the shapeshifter will feel the need of constant being in his soulmate's presence and to unconditionally give her whatever she wants, and vice versa. Should the imprinted one be an infant, the shapeshifter will act as a big brother figure; romantic feelings will not grow until the imprinted one comes to age.
Imprinting doesn't only work on humans but on vampires and hybrids as well. Like Jacob, it's certain that if a shapeshifter imprints on a vampire, their hatred for their enemies (vampires) will be gone.
In addition, there is a law in the Quilete tribe that whoever becomes imprinted by a member of the pack, the rest of the wolves will not be allowed to harm her. This law is to prevent unnecessary battle as the shapeshifter will not forgive whoever harmed his soulmate. Another form of imprinting is friendship between the imprinter and imprintee stating that they are no doubt 'bffs' 'best friends forever'! The other is famliy where they display their affection toward others that they feel compelled to protect. They mark them as 'family for life'.
The forth and final stage of imprinting is foes. Whenever a werepire sees a rival or threat, they automatically can determine whether or not the person will be an ally or foe. If they are imprinted on as a foe, the werepire will do whatever it takes to protect his/her famliy from the advisary and the foe will be marked for death and labled as a threat until disposed of or they become allies.
