The Healing Bite of Bau
Everything is from the app Your Lupine Life.

Bau was a healing and protection goddess who lived around 2,500 BCE. She was said to be the daughter of the sky god An and the god of the south wind, named Ninurta. Her temples contained an area known as “The Kennel” where sick and injured people were brought for healing. Murals in these temples show how Bau healed a sick person: by transforming them into either a dog or a wolf.

Wolf-shaped protection statues devoted to Bau bear the motto, “Don’t stop to think, bite!”

And thats just what she did. Bite. If a Sumerian patient could not be healed any other way, Bau or one of her devotees, might transform into a wolf and do just that: bite. Then she would send the patient home with one of her statues and a foggy memory of the event. The healed person would find the statue and hide it in the walls of their house, not knowing for sure what it meant. Until the next full moon it all became clear – Bau had saved his life by turning him into a werewolf.

Lupa with Romulus and Remus
Everything is from the app Your Lupine Life.


In Rome around 758-728 BCE, a demi-goddess named Rhea Silva had secret twin baby boys named Romulus and Remus by a secret father who may have been the god Mars or the demigod Hercules.

When Rhea’s uncle Amulius found out, he locked Rhea up, snatched the boys and abandoned them in the woods to die. But luckily Rhea was a demi-goddess of the forest and she could talk to the forest animals. She called to a mother wolf called Loba or Lopa, in some stories.

Loba found Romulus and Remus and brought the babies home to her cave where she fed them with her own milk. Miraculously the boys lived and grew up strong. Lupine strong in fact as a result of drinking Lupa’s milk they had become werewolves.

After they experienced their First Moon transformation, they hunted down their evil uncle and went on to make a new city called Rome but they never forgot Lupa, the wolf mother who saved their lives. They declared a festival in her honor on February 15 every year called The Lupercalia which later became Valentine’s Day.

Horkew Kamuy
Everything on this article is from Your Lupine Life app.

In ancient Japan, there was a wolf god named Horkew Kamuy, “the howling wolf god” who lived on the top of a mountain and helped the humans sometimes with their problems. Problems like fire, disease and disasters. The humans would climb to his mountain temples and pray for his help and Horkew Kamuy would send one of his magic white wolves down the mountain to help out the humans below.

In return, the humans had to promise two things. One, to feed these magic white wolves and two, to return them unharmed to Horkew Kamuy when things got better.

This deal worked very well for a long time but after a while the humans got greedy and stopped feeding the wolves. Worse, they stopped returning them to the mountains tops where they belonged. They chained them up in cages instead.

In anger, Horkew Kamuy stopped sending the white wolves and decided to start sending vicious werewolves instead. But first he needed a bride to help him. He looked all over the world for a human bride to help him and finally found one in the Japanese court. He sent a boat to bring her to a...
