Lycanthropus exterus was a werewolf breed.[1]

Physiology[]

Unlike common werewolves, the exterus breed was biped, walking partially upright. It had a more canine-like head, with an shorter snout, longer canines and arms, while its body was not as furry as common werewolves.[1]

Most notably, the body of a Lycanthropus exterus would revert to their human form after death. They transformed at moonrise and remained in wolf form until moonset.[1] This was both in contrast with the common werewolf, which remained in wolf form after death[2] and transformed at sunset until sunrise.[3]
