The wolfwere is a completely different creature from the lycanthropicwerewolf. Wolfweres are a distinct species, whereas werewolves are created from the spread of the magical curse of lycanthropy. Wolfweres typically transform from their wolf form to their human or hybrid form on a day when a moon is not present. Wolfweres have appeared in numerous Dungeons & Dragons video games. In the Ravenloft campaign setting, a wolfwere is one of the setting's Darklords.
