Earth-27 Journal: The House of ElThe House of El was one of the noble ruling families of the planet, Krypton.
In Kryptonian, the name El translates to "of the star". The family line extends back thousands of years, to a time when tribes of Kryptonians still waged war against one another across the continents.
The earliest known members of the El family line existed during Krypton's pre-industrial age when Kryptonians were known by only a single name.
The eldest known member of the bloodline which would come to be known as the House of El was Feln, who was the father of Rugad, who was the father of Tomnu.
Tomnu's son, Erok became the first Kryptonian to bear the name name El as part of his unifying a clan under his crest which abstractly symbolized the sun Rao. As there was another bethgar (chieftain) called Erok, Tomnu's son became to be known as Erok of the Star, or Erok-El.
Erok-El's wife was Milia, the daughter of an opposing bethgar named Uved. Erok-El and Milia gave birth t
Goldstripe species descriptions: Werewolves Scientific name: Homo Lupus
Common name: Werewolf
Habitat: Heavily wooded areas that usually have a huge population of deer and other wild game
Diet: Any form of wild game
Physical description: Werewolves usually have very large muscles, shaggy unkept hair and very peircing eyes. They can tranform into various different species of wolf but the predominant breed seems to be that of the timber wolf. These tranformations are dictated by the lunar cycle. Werewolves are usually very dangerous and delight in tourturing their prey. There are however some werewolves who are kind though they are not common.
Guide to The Lycanthrope ClubThe Lycanthrope Club series chronicles the emergence of a relatively benign form of lycanthropy in the United States. Unlike many other werewolf stories, there are no vampires, no ancient conspiracies or secret societies (at least not initially), no weak pseudoscientific justifications (beyond wild speculation), no return of magic or awakening of Gaia just a girl who becomes a werewolf and what follows. Although nothing in the series goes above a strong PG-13 to weak R rating in terms of content, bear in mind that the series is about 20% fanservice. That said, this story isn't about the fanservice.
The series consists of three novellas, starting with The Woods: A Werewolf Story, followed by the Lycanthrope Club, which transitions to the Lycanthrope Club Vignettes and then Crescent Shadows. Although the three novellas can be read in any order it is recommended you start with The Woods, then The Lycanthrope Club, The Lycanthrope Club Vignettes, and Crescent Shadows.

Notes on WerewolvesLycanthropes in The Lycanthrope Club
Lycanthropy is associated with an unusual virus that does not fit easily into any exiting taxa. It functions similarly to reverse-transcription VI viruses in that it uses reverse transcriptase to integrate its RNA genome into the host cell genome. However, the virus also contains fragments of RNA that are unique to the genome of the Gray Wolf (mostly non-coding intronic or 3'UTR). These fragments seemingly play no role in the virus's function. The oddest thing about the virus is that the infection itself produces virtually no symptoms and can infect nearly every cell type in the body (most viruses target only specific tissues). Once it enters a cell the virus quietly integrates itself into the host genome and hijacks the cell's machinery into producing more, self-assembling viral particles, which then bud off the cell membrane - all, amazingly, without disturbing the functions of the cells. Furthermore, there appears to be a feedback i
Lycanthropes - Variant MorphsHunter
The Hunter is the most common lycanthrope variant morph. They resemble the classic "man-wolf" of Hollywood, though they're really no more hideous in appearance than the average gray wolf. They stand anywhere from six to eight feet in height and sport an impressive physique; the average Hunter is three to four times as strong as the average human. They are capable of bipedal and quadrupedal movement, running on four legs or two. Hunters sport wicked fangs and retractable claws that are capable of tearing through metal. Like mundane wolves, Hunters (and all variant morphs for that matter) have an inner fur coat that is basically beige while the color of their outer coat can vary tremendously. Sometimes the fur color will be the same (or some approximate) of the lycanthrope's hair in his or her human form, leading to werewolves with blonde or red fur. Other times the fur coat will closely rese
