Shapechanger. The werewolf can use its action to polymorph into a Large wolf-humanoid hybrid or into a die wolf, or back into its true form, which is humanoid.

Keen Hearing and Smell. The werewolf has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.

Regeneration. The werewolf regains 20 hit points at the start of its turn. If the werewolf takes damage from an inherited silver weapon or by a descendant of the one who cursed it, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the werewolf’s next turn. The werewolf dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn’t regenerate.

Howl. The werewolf lets out a deafening howl. All non-werewolves within 120ft of it who can hear it muse make a DC 13 Wisdom or be deafened and frightened until the end of its next turn. or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the werewolf's howl for the next 24 hours.

Maddening Gaze. The werewolf targets one humanoid within it can see within 30 of it. If the creature can see the werewolf and is cursed by werewolf lycantropy, the target must succeed on a DC 13 Charisma saving throw against this magic be driven insane by hunger.
At the end of the creature's turn, if it did not attack or take damage from someone other that than the werewolf it takes 33 (6d10) psychic damage.
The madness ends if the werewolf dies, the creature drops another creature to 0 hit points, the curse is removed, or creature embraces the curse.

A werewolf born of the union of two natural werewolves is called loup-garou. The curse grows more powerful and sinister than in the normal werewolf and fill it with an incredible hunger for raw meat and flesh. The rampages of loup-garou are more deadly and sickening than most beasts, leaving half eaten corpses to litter a region and attract normal werewolves and other scavengers.
As a hybrid, it stands about 7’ tall and is extremely muscular. The body is fur-covered and has a short tail, canine legs, and a wolf’s head. The creature walks erect and can manipulate things with its hands. In this form, the creature can talk, although its voice is low and raspy.
As a wolf, a loup-garou looks just like a worg. The creature is swiftest in this form, but cannot handle tools or weapons, and cannot talk.
