A Vye is a shapeshifter, almost like a werewolf. The difference is that a Vye does not depend on the full moon to change into its wolf form.
When in human form a Vye often had watery eyes. Every other part of their form will look like a normal human.
They resemble a werewolf, only bigger and much horrifying.
Vyes can be detected when asked puzzling questions or riddles because they will become agitated if they cannot solve them.
The ancestors of all Vyes were the brothers Romulus and Remus. They had been abandoned and left to die in the wilderness but were saved by a wolf. This wolf cared for them, and was no ordinary wolf. It was an elder spirit in the form of a wolf. Some of the elder spirit's essence was passed onto the two brothers that she had raised.
Vyes are shapeshifters; they can transform themselves to look like others, though taking a human form makes them uncomfortable. Vyes almost always work in pairs. One vye distracts its prey while the other sneaks up on it. If human skin is punctured by a vye's claws or teeth, the human has 72 hours before he or she becomes contaminated. Vyes hate bright light and the bitter cold, but they do not burn easily. They are very quick, but people can outrun them if they Amplify.
