Werewolves are often portrayed as being of huge strength, comparable to that of a dozen normal human beings. They also inherit from the wolf an accute nocturnal vision and a very good sense of smell.
Werewolves are immune from aging and from most physical diseases due to the constant regeneration of their physical tissue. They can, therefore, be virtually immortal. However, they have to return to human form and are subjected to the same rules as normal human-beings.
Though primarily a true wolf while in wolf form, there is some proof that the werewolf retains enough knowledge to assist his killing; recognition of victims, evation of traps, and human cunning have all been seen on werewolf cases.
