  • So I am writing a story and find myself rather curious. The lore behind the cure for the Companions being werewoles involves the Hagravens(or the decendents of??) that first cursed the Companions to be werewolves. So I am just wondering if this cure only works because you became a werewolf through the blood of a Companion. Would it still work in the hypothetical scenario that you had become a werewolf by the blood of an outsider? 

    Discuss.

    • I think other werewolves, such as the ones on Solstheim, have nothing to do with the Glenmoril coven, and so the cure of burning a witches head wouldn't work for them.

      That was one of my thoughts, unless you add to the lore yourself to explain why it still works, I don't think it would make much sense. There is nothing in-game that would indicate it working for anyone outside the Companions.

      One suggestion from a friend was that maybe the cure just requires Hagraven heads and the fact the Glenmoril were involved originally was merely a convenience. I had a thought that maybe the Companions is where Lycanthropy began in Skyrim to begin with and ultimately the blood could all be traced back to the original werewolf Companions. Those would be possible explanations why it could still work, but they are along the lines of headcannons, not in-game lore.

      In-game lore, I believe you are right. In the first option as well, I think the flaw in that would be, why then does it have to be a head from the Glenmoril Hagravens in order to work? So that headcannon has some flaws. What do you think of the second?
