Sims 4 Werewolf Lore

The Sims 4 werewolf lore has changed somewhat throughout previous instalments to the franchise but has mainly expanded with the recent game pack. Joining the roster of occult Sims, werewolves have finally been added to the Sims 4 alongside aliens, vampires, mermaids and most recently, witches. To find out how werewolves fit into the sim's lore, read on.

Sims 4 Werewolf Origins In The Franchise

Sims 3 werewolf transformation

From the original Sims: Makin' Magic expansion pack in 2003, werewolves have been a permanent fixture in The Sims universe. Taking a step away from the Teen Wolf-like humanoid werewolves of Sims 3, The Sims 4 has introduced more animalistic versions of the wolves, like those featured in The Sims 2. The werewolves are still bipedal but have the option to drop on all fours when travelling on a rampage.

Rather than shifting into a werewolf in the traditional sense, the Sims: Makin' Magic established werewolf curses as the result of a spell called the 'Beauty or Beast' charm in which Sims would take on a wolf-like appearance but without any of the animalistic behaviour as we've seen with the Sims 4 Werewolves.

The Sims 2: Pets was the first traditional iteration of werewolves in the franchise, with the lycanthrope curse being transmitted through a bite from the alpha wolf, only spotted during the night. As such, although the Sims 4 follows a closer resemblance to Sims 2 werewolves, they follow much of the same gameplay as displayed during the Sims 3 with the key ability to pass on the lupine trait to offspring.

Although werewolves in the Sims 3 can transform into their wolf-form at will, in the Sims 4 you'll have to earn that perk through gameplay and by successfully transitioning without scaring nearby Sims.

From item descriptions of artefacts found in the game such as the 'Tamed Cowplant Skull', we know that werewolves in the Sims 4 originated as spellcasters called 'mooncasters' who turned themselves into wolves in response to threats from the vampire's 'Operation Eternal Flame' scheme. Instead of being turned into vampires (via the scheme), they opted to harness the power of the moon instead. There is a sub-class of spellcasters called 'moocasters' who decided to reject both of these ideas and instead charmed cowplants to act as guards and battle companions, hinting that vampires and spellcasters have had a long-standing feud in the Sims universe, which led to the creation of werewolves.

Sims 4 Werewolf Lore: Who Is Greg?

Greg from The Sims 3 Werewolves

Much of the mystery following the Sims 4 Werewolves expansion pack has centred around the reclusive, lone wolf Greg. Greg is an extremely hostile werewolf that prefers to be alone. Many fans have speculated on the reason for Greg's avoidance of other wolves, with many musing on a possible Romeo and Juliet storyline of forbidden love.

There are two distinct packs in the expansion, one being the Moonwood Collective whose primary ambition is to be good ambassadors for werewolf kind and establish trust between themselves and human Sims. The other pack is the more rebellious Wildfangs who wish to be free to explore their lycanthrope personalities without the constriction of societal rules.

Through the Moonwood Collective aspiration, you have the responsibility to reach out to other Sims and establish werewolf allies. Through this, is it hinted that you may also have to bridge the peace between Greg and the other werewolves. This is no easy task however, upon approach Greg is usually hostile and rarely takes a sim form.

Greg is known to have the 'Cursed Bite' power to turn others into werewolves. He has been confirmed to have turned both Lux Demarco and Lou Howell, as such he has 'despised' relationships with most of the other neighbouring wolves. Greg has unique interactions with sims being able to 'attempt to communicate' with him before being able to introduce themselves and having the option to 'share concerns about Greg' to other werewolf sims.

Through further collectable descriptions in the game, Greg is revealed to be one of the first mooncasters who opted to change into a werewolf. His ability to push fury to the limit has impacted his temperament permanently.

Sims 4 Werewolf Lore: Who Is Avelina?

Avelina Lunvik is also a character shrouded in mystery amongst the Sims 4 gurus. As always, lore is often hidden through item descriptions during the build and buy screen. Whilst viewing 'Avelina's Trusty Telescope' it is confirmed that Avelina was once Greg's wife and perhaps the reason for his unbridled rage. It is also confirmed that Avelina was also a werewolf and used her heightened senses to establish herself as a successful astrologer. Links with the Sims 4 aliens are seen here as she is said to have discovered Sixam first, the planet from which aliens originate from in the Sims 4 (first introduced in the Sims 4: Get to Work pack). Greg's full name is revealed as Greggorius, who comes from a line of werewolves with his mother, Pernilla Lunvik, also suffering from the curse and perhaps contributing to Greg's established power amongst the other wolves.

Sims 4 Future Supernatural Packs

Although previous instalments of the Sims have grouped supernatural races, The Sims 4 is following suit of crafting a game pack around one occult race at a time. Following the success of the spellcaster's pack, the Sims 4 Werewolves operates similar ability points and levelling up systems.

The Sims team have not ruled out a 'future' or 'zombie' pack, exciting news for fans still eagerly anticipating fairies as a playable race.

There are current fairy mods out there for fans unable to wait for an official release. Although the Sims supports the use of mods, they may break certain gameplay mechanics, so use them with caution.

Sims 4 Werewolf Relationships With Other Occult Sims

If you have Sims 4 Vampires also installed, chances are you'll witness their disdain for werewolf sims. The Occult sims introduced through the game so far have been vampires, aliens, mermaids, spellcasters and werewolves. All occult sims have connecting lore that can be found through lore books in The Sims world or through item descriptions.

One such item added to the new pack has been a painting of iconic vampire Vladislaus Straud, with a werewolf claw mark running through it. This item is tied to the backstory of the sim, Celene López who first became curious about the feud between both races whilst viewing the painting.

Celene coincidentally found the cure for Werebies (contracted from a werewolf bite), so if you wish to cure your sim of the curse without cheats, visit Celene at the local bar.

Sims 4 Werewolf Lore Books And Collectibles

By unlocking 'Lunar Epiphany' (a dormant werewolf ability) you can decipher werewolf secrets from books and artefacts to reveal more lore surrounding the occult species. You can also unlock more lore by adventuring through the tunnels and deciphering the glyphs found in the Underground. To find books and artefacts in the wild, use your wolf's enhanced smell to scavenge. Buried items will appear as a green mist on the ground to indicate the areas you'll want to dig.

A lore book available to read is a diary, hinted at revealing further information on Greg's backstory. The other werewolf books available with the new game pack are as follows:

  • Beyond Big & Bad: Rethinking Harmful Werewolf Stereotypes
  • Peter Barker Book x4
  • Book by Vulfgang Mulder x4
  • Secrets Book x4
  • BARK Magazine
  • The Good Boy Magazine

Local librarian and aptly named werewolf, Wolfgang, may also share some local werewolf history with you upon interacting with him.
