Therianthropy is the ability to shapeshift into other animals, and back again. Those that are permenantly stuck in one form, even if it is a hybrid of human and animal or if able to shapeshit into multiple animals at will, are not considered therianthropes. While the best known form of therianthropy are werewolves, other forms have developed in the latter point of the 20th century. The disease began as a curse, speading through the bite of the creature. Only those that are strong of will have any hope of controlling the beast within. A genetic mutation in recent years occasionally causes the victim to adopt a form based on the wolf's cousin. Those are the only two "naturally"-occuring forms, but human scientists have managed to mimic the effects and created the Ailuranthrops. Meanwhile, a witch's curse created the lone Sciuridthrope. As supernatural creatures, though, natural therianthropes are vulnerable to silver.
