Werebugs, or Etymothropes, are a new species of werecreatures. They were created through scientific means by splicing a pure strain of the Lycan Virus and inserting various insect DNA strains.
Behavior and Social StructureEdit
Socially, they retain humanity, but like some insects such as Termites, Ants, and many bees and wasps, they live together in large well-organized colonies as such.
Though at times, they possess aggressiveness and brutality as some insects. This proves a slight chink in the armor of their social organization. Though this doesn’t mean they’re unreasonable.
And while they are capable in controlling insect urges, this one is perhaps their greatest weakness: their sexual potency.
Due to the insects’ drive to mate faster either to build colonies or small life expectancies, the werebug’s mating drive is increased as well beyond nomral human capacity. Though their lifespan may be extended due to the Lycanthropy mixed with the insects’, a decreased lifespan is no longer a problem. However, the constant need to mate can be itself a problem, as it is necessary to let it out of the system. Though the reproductive system has been altered, preventing from receiving early or unexpected pregnancies until the subject is in their twenties or thirties. However, the craving need to mate rises on either special romantic times, or at the most awkward/unexpected of situations.
Though it is unknown if the werebugs are capable of infecting others. Yet.

- Regeneration: Their healing factors enables them to heal much faster. Though if heavily damaged, they’ll vomit out a substance that encases the werebug in a cocoon that slowly speeds up the physical metabolism and slow their vitals down to a crawl to better enable to heal. This process takes about a few days or longer, depending on how badly the werebug’s hurt. If a Flight, the wings can also regenerate if they are sliced, torn off, or heavily damaged.
