The Irish werewolf is different from the Teutonic or European werewolf, as it is really not a “monster” at all. Unlike its continental cousins, this shapeshifter is the guardian and protector of children, wounded men and lost persons. According to some ancient sources, the Irish werewolves were even recruited by kings in time of war. Known in their native land as the faoladh or conroicht, their predatory behaviour is typical of the common wolf, not beneath the occasional nocturnal raid
i need stories about this one
Of course you never see this style of werewolf in western literature. Wolves being heroic or honorable is just a completely foreign concept since we seem to hate wolves so much that we almost made the two American wolves extinct.
