Lycans are a human-wolf hybrid and can transform at any time. They are considered bloodthirsty and vicious, constantly fighting with vampires over better statuses. However, werewolves are also said to be very dangerous creatures. Lycans are often mistaken for werewolves but are more intelligent. Mythology states that lycans cannot transform into werewolves completely because they retain human form. This makes them half-human as well as half-wolf.
