Shelves: werewolves
A family has been vilified and reproached for years. They are accused of being werewolves and causing misfortune, and due to the society's judgment they are forced to live in isolation. After suffering great losses, the protagonist is driven into a state of rage and "transforms" himself into a werewolf with the help of a dyed sheepskin and a mask.

An interesting early example of lycanthropy as a psychological disorder. Could also be interpreted as an intentional act to seize an opportunity instea

This is a little known story from the lycanthrope genre. Give this little creeper a go and see how the genre has evolved over time.
