Hereditary lycanthropes can change shape at will, and retain their personality, being in control of their actions. Infected lycanthropes’ shapechanges are affected by the full moon. They usually are not aware of their actions and act as aggressive predators.
Lycanthropes can assume the form of an animal/humanoid hybrid, in addition to their animal form. Most lycanthropes in animal form can communicate with animals of their type. In humanoid form, they can use any weapon, and in animal form they use natural weapons like the corresponding animals, but each type has a different fighting style in hybrid form.
Were-badgers are very rare but can be found in cold forest regions of Esperia. Normally were-badger are halflings or dwarves in common form, a dire badger or a mixed humanoid form. They are good willed and normally worship the god Silvanus.
