Question is simple, does this creature has it's own common name, like werewolves?
I'm not sure I follow that logic...Castlevania games referred to them on ocassions as Weretiger and Werepanthers so non super savvy people would associate the "were-" with anthro animals.
Sure? I'm not sure why you feel the need for the name of their race to include something about being tigers. Isn't it visually obvious in their sprites and portraits?So, better would be calling them tigermen?
Interesting - can you provide some background for that distinction? I did some looking up, and the only thing with any detail that seemed at all credible was this page, and all of the stories/quotes on it do not offer that the transformations in Greek myth were voluntary.werebeasts have no control over their transformations and is often caused by moon phase.
---thrope is when a creature can transform between humans form and animal form at will.
I mean...still, according to whom? You are literally the first person I have ever heard say this, and I can find no substantiation when intentionally looking it up (aside from that one Web page that I reasonably discounted).the distinction between the 2 is relatively recent early 1900s.
From what I know it's the other way around? The destinction became less popular in early 1900. Until then lycanthropy was only used for people who had a mental disease that made them believing they'd be animals and not even exclusively wolves.the distinction between the 2 is relatively recent early 1900s.
I would rather you don't tell people who are asking questions that words mean something they don't mean? Or, as I've asked twice, provide some actual factual source for your statements.would you rather i call them skinwalkers
