When faced down by a werewolf that used to be a friend or loved one, DO NOT count on them recognizing you and letting you go your own way.
Once turned, the beast mind takes over, driven by a blood lust not commonly found in beasts, with one exception.
Sharks enter into a feeding frenzy when confronted by other sharks and an abundance of injured and bleeding prey.
Scientists believe that, similar to the feeding frenzy, the brain of a werewolf generates a hormonal imbalance that sends the beast into a blood lust.
You cannot override this impulse and momentary recognition, if it happens at all, will certainly evaporate in seconds and you will be attacked and killed.
