What is the difference between a Lycan and Werewolf?
A lycan and a werewolf are folkloric or mythological characters. Though a lycan and a werewolf relate to the transformation of humans into a wolf, they are different in many respects. Both the lycan and werewolf possess great superhuman powers, agility, speed, regenerative abilities, coordination, and have excellent tracking abilities. Unlike the werewolf, lycans are said to be smarter. When compared to a werewolf, a lycan is a bit more muscular.
Below are the pictures of how I imagine them:
Thanks to www.differencebetween.net for their wonderful article on Lycan Vs Werewolf.
Can a Lycan be killed?
Yes. Lycans are more difficult to kill than werewolves. To kill a lycan in this particular story, one should have to sever the head from its body or remove the heart. They cannot be killed using silver.
They can recover from almost any injury and can regrow any lost body parts.
Can you kill a werewolf/lycan using Silver?
In this story, no. However, certain poisons when administered in high dose can kill werewolves. As for the Lycans, the poison like Wolfsbane disables their healing and regenerating capability as long as it’s in their blood. They can die of blood loss at this time.
What are the pack ranks?
The pack has ranks which are Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Omega; in that order. The Alpha was intelligent and the strongest of all, next came the Beta who was the second in command. Gamma was the third in command. The Deltas who excel in physical strength are the most trusted warriors. The werewolves were categorized as Omegas. They are intelligent and occupied the important roles within the pack. Their intelligence compensated for what they lacked in physical strength.
How are Omegas treated in Aaron’s pack?
They are treated with respect and love.
How many Lycan Clans are there in Randolph Series?
There are four clans in total. They all live in Brookedge, a fictitious state in the United States but in different cities.
What are the names of the four clans?
1. Randolph Clan
2. Mark Clan
3. Raymond Clan
4. Christopher Clan
The clans are named after the siblings of the great King Aaron Senior, who is Aaron’s grandfather.
Check out their family tree here.
Why all the Randolph Clan members are mostly provided the same second name?
Nothing biggie. It's easy to remember that way. Females will have different name but the males siblings will have the same second name. It also help them blend with the humans considering that they are immortals. Using the same name would make humans think that it's a Royal thing and they don't pay much attention to the whereabouts.
Has the 1st and 2nd generation sired only one child?
Okay, the thing is Lycans especially, the Royals tend to have more children. They have more siblings but we are looking at the story of one particular clan as such, so I am not dwelving into the details. The other characters does not make an appearance and so they are not introduced.
Mia is born to a Witch and a Human. How did she become a vampire?
Mia is a hybrid by birth. Her human side has a mutant DNA which causes her transformation into a vampire. Being born to the most powerful witch ever known, she got the witch powers naturally. She was not supposed to come of age so soon, but the switch of witch blood had kind of activated her dormant witch side.
What powers does Felipe possess?
Felipe is indeed powerful. The full extent to his powers are yet to be revealed. However, at the moment he can read minds, sift through memories, hypnotize people or any supernatural to do his bidding, etc., He is faster, stronger and an experienced fighter.
Why Felipe kidnaps the Lycans instead of killing them?
He discovered that drinking Lycan blood gives him a power surge for a short while. He is experimenting to find a way to make the effects stay longer.
What kind of effects does Lycan blood has on Mia?
It makes her stronger. Considering that she is mated to Aaron, the power surge comes with the blood stays with her forever, unlike Felipe. It also makes her immune to Lycan claws, only strong Lycans like Aaron can pierce her skin using his claws.
What kind of effects does Mia's blood has on Aaron?
It makes him stronger than any other Lycan. His healing capacity is boosted double fold when compared to any other Lycan and he is equally faster to a vampire with fast reflexes.
Can Aaron perform magic due to the fact that he consumed Mia's blood?
No. He's is immune to Mia's magic. But, not all. Other's can still harm him to a certain extent. Her blood in his system will counter the effects to an extent.
How can one kill a Vampire?
By severing it’s head or removing it’s heart. Stakes don’t work. You should burn the body aftermath.
