Children of Wepwawet
Characteristics and Aspects
Wepwawet was originally a war deity. Wepwawet originally was seen as a wolf deity said to accompany the pharaoh on hunts. The connection to war, and thus to death, led to Wepwawet also being seen as one who opened the ways for the spirits of the dead.
Wepwawet was depicted as a wolf or a jackal, or as a man with the head of a wolf or a jackal. Even when considered a jackal, Wepwawet usually was shown with grey, or white fur, reflecting his lupine origins. He was depicted dressed as a soldier, as well as carrying other military equipment—a mace and a bow. The children of Wepwawet have distinctive lupine features: fur, ears, fangs, and tails.
Wepwawet had relations with Ra, Anubis, and Wadjet.
Wepwawet whose cult centre was Asyut in Upper Egypt. Some interpret that Wepwawet was seen as a scout, going out to clear routes for the army to proceed forward.
The children of Wepwawet put up a considerable fight when the hunters came for them, the humans winning only due to numbers. The children of Wepwawet were more scattered then most and many lost any sense of their history. This is the most likely cause of at least most of the werewolf legends.
The children of Wepwawet have enhanced speed, strength, and stamina. They also have regenerative powers, allowing them to heal most wounds over time. They have limited magical powers related to lupines/canines, spirits, and lupine transformation.
Wepwawet’s children tend to have lupine personality traits: fierce, intractable, and cooperative. They tend to organize into family packs, much like real wolves.
