It's not correct to refer to a werewolf as Lycan ;) but they are similar.

In the movie, Lycans are werewolves, but in actuality Lycans are not werewolves at all.

Lycans do have two forms, neither of which is human!

A lycan is usually a normal run of the mill animal, such as a dog or a cat. When angered, this animal will change into a beast form of it's normal self.

I think the creators wanted to use something that sounded less campy than werewolf and figured that the general public has not heard the term.

Lycans are werewolves just a different way.  If you think about it a dog changing into a beast form of itself is just like a person changing into a beast form of himself/herself. In other words a werewolf. So in general terms a Lycan is a werewolf. By the way I personally think that Underworld is a great movie.

A Lycan is sort of like a beast of the night. A werewolf that is not much of being just a gigantic dog that has a fetish for blood. Besides like it says in the movie the Lycans were also the guards of the vampire's tombs when they were asleep. Also in the past they were just poor servents of the vampire's,but no more... They are their worst enemies in the struggle to survive.

A lycan is not only werewolf. Believe or not I am a lycan. A wereleopard. The movie underworld was like the first vampire movie. The first vampire movie used things that are not true. The first lycan movie just now did that too. Maybe they should talk to a real lycanthrope on making a lycan movie again. If you want to learn more of lycans, my e-mail is lycanjay@hotmail.com

I believe in supernatural beings and i believe Lycans in some way are real, not that they change from humans into them, but like Riven said from a domestic creature.

I think the people who made this film needed to research there 'creatures' before hand!

Lycanthropy from Greek:

anthropos, "man",

a psychiatric state in which the patient believes he is a wolf or some other nonhuman animal.

Undoubtedly stimulated by the once widespread superstition that lycanthropy is a supernatural condition in which men actually assume the physical form of other animals, the delusion has been most likely to occur among people who believe in reincarnation and the transmigration of souls.

yeah Mike we are not nerds, we have intelligence something your lack. But anyways yeah there is a thing called LYCANTHROPIC DISORDER :

Lycanthropic Disorder - is a mental condition in which the subject (called a Lycanthrope) believes that he or she is a werewolf. The subject does not actually change shape, but is nevertheless capable of being as dangerous as an actual werewolf. Most cases of supposed werewolfry are really the works of Lycanthropic Disorder victims....

so basically a Lycan in many ways if not all ways are as werewolves.

Everyone should know that "Lycans" or Lycanthropes exist. I feel insulted by that term, and that some people misuse the word "Lycanthrope." Terianthropes are people that have the ability to shift into their totem animal, by some means. They could shift mentally, aurically, by bi-location, or even the rare physical way. I happen to be a mental shifter, but not a physical shifter. That would be cool if I was though. =3 Anyway. I wish humans would understand...but they don't. Which is why I'm not fond of most people. I think the shifting part in the movie was a tad blocky...does anyone agree?

Lycan is short for lycanthrope which is a medical disorder also referred as Porphyria based on defficiency in heme enzymes. Abnormal heme synthesis leads to various symptoms such as photosensitivity, disfigurations of the face and exaggerated reactions to certain chemicals in garlic. The vampire myth may have come from porphyria sufferers. Also there was a belief that these patients would have their symptons relieved when drinking blood, which is not confirmed by medicine. Porphyria may also cause abnormal hair growth on the face and limbs and even the palms of the hands, which could also explain the werewolf legends.

ok you guys are gay lycans in the movie are werewolves because the "disease" of werewolves is called lycanthoropy thus the lycan because they are infected with it   and no the lycan is not  a mix between vamp/werewolf its just the werewolf it even says in the movie the sons of the corvinus tribe were the original immortals one bitten by a bat " vampire"  and one bitten by a wolf "werewolf" and it is the hybrid of these genes that makes micheal what he is. the reason Selene bites him is, again this is said in the movie, the genes to become whatever is biting you is passed through the saliva/bite of the attacker, the hybrid needs both genes of the species and since micheal got the lycan ones from lucien all he needed was the ones form the vampire and this is where selene comes in, she bites him in order for him to have the vamp genes.  
and once again you people are wrong lycanthoropy is not Porphyria, Porphyria is the reason that most people in the late 1800's were hunted down as werewolves, having porphyria gives symptons of being a werewolf or at least what they thought were the symptons,  lycanthoropy is a disease of the mind in which the person believes they can  become a creature, its a form of schizopphrenia and it can be treated

AND NO  I REPEAT NO THE LYCANS DO NOT EXIST THEY ARE A MYTH AND ALL YOU FREAKS WHO THINK YOU ARE LYCAN OR WHATEVER NEED TO GROW UP  THEYRE NOT REAL, THE IDEA IS COOL ILL ADMIT BUT THE ACTUAL THING DOES NOT I REPEAT DOES NOT EXIST

Most interesting comments. I also came here by mistake but couldn't help reading. As far as I'm concerned I fell under the impression that Lycan came from Lycanthropy like many people stated above, but it doesn't necessarily refer directly to the so called "Werewolf", to me it means the ability to morph or something along the lines generally speaking.

And as far as there being true phenomenal beings such as Vampires or Lycans or other such beings may or may not be true, as far as I'm concerned there are many things that we humans do not comprehend and most of us are quick to judge and jump to conclusions without truly knowing, its all about being open minded. Though there are those that do pretend or like to believe they indeed are vampires etc and start practicing as if they were and then take the name upon themselves. They dress up like the supernatural beings, self mutilate themselves, and even go to the extremes of having surgery just to look like one..which to me is just a fantasy lived out, just an illusion that oneself creates.

To Nikki, a Lycan is a werewolf and only the more powerful Lycans can change whenever it wants.
To Reaper, there are such things as vampires and lycans. If you bought Underworld the special edition DVD then you would see they actually have an interview with a real lycan and it shows some vampires too. Its fine if you don't believe in these things but a lot of people do and these beings are out there so don't judge or call people names because of what they believe in because you could be wrong.

Ok, for the record... you guys must not read the whole block of messages and threads before you write your answers huh?  Talk about repeats, the conversation present on this site is not only childish and pathetic, but its full of angst and denial from parties consisting of both believers and non believers (concerning Lycanthrope's and Werewolves).   Now, I am a psychologist. Who in his spare time, mostly as a hobbie, studies every form of Werewolf, Lycanthrope, Tall tale shifter, you name it, both Non-fiction and Fiction.  Lycanthrope's are, in plain man's terms, patient's exibiting a belief in or mental disability of Werewolf related subject (sometimes they even suffer from Porphyria).  Many people believe patient's suffering from Lycanthropy are in fact possessed or inflicted by the Devil.  Werewolves on the other hand, are mythilogical creatures, who transformed from man into wolf or vice versa.  However, myth generates from fact, therefore, there must be truth to the whole Werewolf tale.  This is where my work is present, this is what I study.  It is a strange world we live in.  Whether we except it or not.  Now, if you do some study for yourselves and look up "A Lycanthropy Reader", its a book, you can read of real patient cases.  Learn a bit about the reality of Lycan's in todays society.  But think to yourselves, if you happened to be walking around during the night and chance upon a person completely      , smeared in mud, wearing a wolf skin belt, and chanting over a boiling cauldron... most likely you would believe it was a werewolf to.  Thus the myth has a new meaning...  Hopefully my time will not go totally wasted here, and you might all learn a little and possibly even find a new hobbie.

Well, in the movie Underworld, the Vampires used the term Lycan to designate the werewolves. But the thingy the guy said that a Lycan is an animal changing into a best-like form of itself is completely wrong. Although, in the movie, they say to Michael Corvin(us) that Lycans are Werewolves, I think they just used the term to make "Werewolf" sound much cooler.

And by the way, I am a real life Werewolf...

I've always believed there are things out there that i can not explain be it ghosts, vampires, demons, lycans, or whatever. I'm not entirly sure what there are out there and i'mnot going to argue over wheater the people claming to be Lycans or whatnot are mentally unstable or otherwise, I was looking under lycans because a guy in my school who likes me claimed to be half demon half lycan and although i must say i do not believe him since he also went into a long drawn out explination as to how i may reflect my monk/worrior ansester, william the conquerer, or at least thats what my family claims, in my own personality because of my silence on many topics, my dislike of sunlight (not sure what that has to do with anything) and my overall agressive nature (i train with ancient weopondry, it scares people)but i was curious non the less. Anyway as I was reading  those that claim to be lycans intrigued me somehow, i mean no offense when i say 'claim to be' but however if any of you whould be so kind as to post more information on the....I suppose species(once again if you find this offensive i meant nothing by it)...it would be much appretiated. After all, who am i to argue with you? and said guy could be telling the truth, though i still have my doubts..

First of all people, learn to spell. Second, I too stumbled upon this, and am slightly laughing. I love the fact that people who claim to be Lycan and/or Werewolf experts cannot even spell the names right. And if I met a naked man covered in mud wearing a wolf skin belt and chanting over a cauldron, I'd think it was either a pagan celebrating in his own fashion or some idiot who read too many books, then back away slowly. The Lycanthrope, you are probably one of the only sane one out of this bunch.

Now, maybe everyone will actually get back on topic and discuss Underworld.

Well the Bob first has to say to Reaper.... Thank you. Reaper said it best when he said Werewolves are complete fiction. And thank you Jess for the reference to the Underworld DVD. The Fang v.s Fiction documentary is a wonderful look into the legacy of the werewolf and vampire legends, but I also must say referring to those interviewed as "real" lycanthropes and vampires may be incorrect. When I first saw the Fang v.s Fiction aired on AMC my reaction to "werewolves" and "vampires" was that they are riding a thin line between sane and insane. I believe however that the disorder of lycanthropy can exist but only as a mental disorder not as a disorder that causes actual shapeshifting. Reaper, I also agree with you in that the idea of werewolves is awesome and make for great movies, but going to the extent of calling these alleged werewolves, quote "gay shapeshifters" is going to far. These individuals obviously are not all there, whether it be lack of self esteem or worse, these people don't need added criticism, but rather help from a doctor. I am a lover of horror movies and liked Underworld every much. It added a great action movie twist however I would have liked to see more of the lycans. With that said I believe I have a firm grip on reality and do not believe in the existence of actual werewolves and vampires (as they are portrayed in the movies). The Fang v.s Fiction documentary did shine light on the existence of vampires of sort. Those who, while not the walking dead, do have a fetish with blood and have ceremonies where they injest blood of over fellow vampires. This in it's self dispels these people as actual vampires, as portrayed in the movies vampires feast on the blood of the living not their own. As for werewolves the human body would not be capable of such transformation for many reasons. One such reason is the stretching of the epidermis of the human which for many would cause the skin to burst open and cause in some cases instantaneous death. But with the abilities of werewolf ism comes the territory of not following the normal laws of nature. Thank you, The Bob

LYCAN COMES FROM A GREEK WORD THAT MEANS WOLF.
SO THE PROPER NAME FOR A WAREWOLF WOULD BE LYCANANTHROPOUS BUT THAT WOULD BE TOO DIFFICULT TO PRONOUNCE.

AS FAR AS "VAMPIRE OR LYCAN WHO WOULD WIN"
IT TOTALY DEPENDS ON AGE.

IF THEY ARE BOTH YOUNG AS IN JUST TURNED INTO A VAMPIRE AND A LYCAN THEN THE LYCAN IS STRONGER BUT AN OLDER VAMPIRE WOULD HAVE THE ADVANTAGE BECAUSE BESIDES MORE PHYSICAL STRENGH HE ALSO HAS SUPERNATURAL POWERS.

FINALLY IT ALSO DEPENDS IF THE VAMPIRE OR THE LYCAN IS PUREBLOODED OR JUST INFECTED

I'VE GOT A QUESTION: DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD GET A SPECIES HALF VAMPIRE AND HALF LYCAN WHAT WOULD HE LOOK LIKE AND COULD HE BE A DAYWALKER

lol...everyone here...on this board...are complete idiots...I myself am a genetic Lycan...but as far as a war breaking out...hello...any true lycan would know that there has allready been a generational war between vamps n lycs...I myself do not have any animosity towards vampires...I am being trained by one...but as far as "You people will suffer!" Come on...seriously...YOU people that claim you know of lycans and are making threats against the humans will truly suffer...why would you be a vicious lycan on the internet surfing for the movie "underworld boards" hm?? I am a lycan but how the hell do you expect to track down these particular humans hm? by astral projection? locating their energy signal? I sincerely doubt you fake "lycans" can do any of that...and if you can...don't find them...find me.

Sincerely,

Everyone who is mean to the posters in here, find something else to do.  We're all just having fun! Besides, who gets hurt by thinking or pretending to be Lycan or Vampire? Leave people alone! Let them do their own thing! Lastly, I can't wait for Underworld 2. My answer to all of your questions is WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN! IT EXPLAINS IT ALL! I've watched it at least 5 times now. Besides, hasn't anyone noticed that both Vamps and Lycans look different from film to film? Go with what you like, everyone else seems to.

I'd like to think a lycan was anther way of stating that that person was anther way of saying a "werewolf".
The lycans were a race of some who were infected by others, who were being hunted in the movie the underworld.

And as to those of you who actually think these people imitating the way the chacters from the movie talk, i assure you, they are only joking for the assument it brings them to kid around. I'm ashamed that they're some of you 12-15 year olds out there that can actually think a person who really thought they were a lycan would come here to discuss it and NOT be joking. Its the people here with the inferiority complexes that have the real problem here.

Lycan, in the movie underworld stood for a victim of the Lycanthropic disease. It was cut short to Lycan but shouldn't have as to be confused with the real term Lycan of being completly non-human but similar to The were-creatures. They called them Lycans also because they didn't change at the sight of a full moon but whenever they wanted. Waranting another reason as to why they could be called Lycans because of that similarity. So it was fair to call them Lycans from a side of the point.

I am a vampyre and I did like the movie Underworld but the inaccuracy is a but aggravating. Myz I believe it is funny that you think that lycans will overcome vamps for I believe at this moment in time we both should have bigger things to worry about like the prophecies. Just to let everyone know LYCANS AND VAMPYRES DO EXIST!!! Just look them up on yahoo search engine and maybe you will find some truth. Anyone who is so ignorant and mundane I feel bad for you because you will never be more than prey to our kind and what you don't know can hurt you!!

A person affected with lycanthropy.
AND LYCANTHROPY: In folklore, the magical ability to assume the form and characteristics of a wolf.
A delusion that one has become or assumed the characteristics of a wolf or other animal.
SO IN TRUTH WHEN THE HUMAN RACE COME DOWN IF YOU BELIEVE IN LYCANTHROPES, AND VAMPIRES... AND NOT FEAR THEM YOU WILL BECOME IMMORTAL.BUT IF YOU FEAR THEM OR DON'T BELIEVE IN THEM, THEN YOUR FATE WILL BE DEATH.        AND LIKE WHAT PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY SAID YOU ARE ENTITLED TO AN OPINION, SO IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME THEN SO BE YOUR FATE!!! =)

i came on this by accident trying to learn something(which i did).... and it seems that this post or thread or whatever this is seems kinda wasted... there seems to be a childish battle going on here... which doesn't help the poor person who answer the question... personally myself i would very much admire if vampires/ werewolves were possible.... if not a little frightened at being prey, which i think is why some people are being a little unpolite, no one likes the idea of being cattle ... and as nice as it would for some people for the old myths to be reality, there is science to explain it all with medical disorders.... so even IF there are possible werewolves/ vampires it would be pretty hard to prove with all the fakes running around wouldn't it??? as much as i like to believe that the myths and legends are real, deep down i believe its a lie, and in that i feel safe and secure... as do other people that have spoken in this thread... and those who are flaming others, they have every right to believe in what they believe in... but couldnt we please disagree nicely?? and yes, its LIKELY (not saying its true just a possiblitiy) some people on here DO need to see a shrink... also just a note... if there are ANY real lycans on here do you REALLY want to bring attention to yourself like this?? i would think you want to avoid being brought into limelight? I mena if there were real lycans AND lets say there were organizations that hunted lycans down... and if there are people who believe they are lycans wouldnt it make sense if other people believed them as well and believed that they were a danger to society nad should be hunted down like animals  to protect people?? and if there are people who hunt lycans dont you think they would be watching threads like these and i dont know... find out personel info about you which could result in actual lycan being hunted down.... not saying its true but just a bunch of if's.....

okay first of, let me give everyone a litten lesson, first of, lycans are werewolfs, they created the name lycan in referance to the word lycanthropy, which is the technical name for the werewolf virus or enzyme in many differant referances,   as the person who wrote the answer before me, porphyria is a medical defect similare to vampirism but not the same, its not even similare if you have some personal experience with both species vampire and lycan, porphyria is more similare to anemia than vampirism, the only reason porphyria would be mistaken for vampirism is simply because in some cases the gums retract making the appearance seem as though your Canines are growing when they arnt. lycans AKA Werewolfs are in common society in the REAL world, are not very fond of eachother, same as in the movie, however what contradicts the movie from the way things work in reality(from my experience) because in reality lycans and vampires are not always at war, and when they are its because of something stupid or political, also when war breaks out its not worldwide, its usualy only within that country or state, england seems to always be an off and on war area for both lycans and vampires, with this said, the things that throw off most mortals is simply, you mortal retards actualy believe vampires are limited to the night.... tsk tsk tsk....

The fact of the matter is that a Lycan is a person who has the ability change his/her form from that of a human to that of a wolf like creature.Be it a slight change, to a dramatic change.In the movie, Underworld, Raze was able to change at will because he was one of the older, stronger lycans.Just as Lucian was able to heal himself when Celine shot him.Some lycans do not show these traits as they are still young and are not strong enough to use these abilities.Therefore they are not regarded as Lycans because they do not or are not able to use these abilities yet.Nonetheless they are still Lycans.and Also, Vampires belong to households and clans in which a vampire is born into power.Whereas Lycans belong to packs and dens And can be born into power or given power by a superior.

Just for the record...regarding the myth of werewolves and vampires.In the Dark Ages,the mythology of werewolves and vampires were interchangeable.It was generally believed that vampires and werewolves were in fact the same creatures exhibiting the same bestiality and bloodlust.Some were thought to shapeshift,and others were pale undead.Both were believed to be a manifestaion of the devil or of a sinner who was punished with said affliction.I think that maybe in this movie,this was the basis of the creatures' differences(excepting the part about being punished).As for whether the creatures exist...well if you can believe in angels and demons,then why not vampires and werewolves?

Of all the things I've looked up the lycanthrope changes from human to warewolf...

Such as:
"Definitions of Lycan on the Web:

A werewolf in folklore and mythology is a person who changes into a wolf, either by purposefully using magic or by being placed under a curse. The medieval chronicler Gervase of Tilbury associated the transformation with the appearance of the full moon, but this concept was rarely associated with the werewolf until the idea was picked up by modern fiction writers." -From a google search... (http://www.google.com/search?q=define%3ALycan&btnG=Search&hl=en&lr=&safe=active)


Don't try to get me in trouble for plagarism... I don't like the stupid MLA format crap and I'm not taking the time to mess with it. Underworld was an AWESOME movie! And I can't wait to see the next one! The girl in there is hella hot, but the dude... She shouldn't have been with a dude, sorry... She's too tough to be so drawn to someone else. Someone should be drawn to her, and she should take hold of THEIR leash. Her character is too strong willing to be with a guy.... I think having her as a Lesbian or something would be better, or just don't have her with anyone... I like cookies... Okay, bye! -The Cheese Monster

oh my, I really enjoyed reading all that. Kudos to the first person who came up with the idea of taking on a role.
Anyway, I know other people have said as much, but since there's been a lot of hogwash posted as well I'll just clarify a few things by restating it as I understand.
1. In the movie Lycans and werewolves are equivolent.
2. Beyond the realms of the movie werewolves and Lycans aren't the same at all. Lycan have 2 forms. A form that we'd typically associate with a commonly known animal, such as a pet dog or cat, and a beast form. The idea being anything could be a Lycan and you wouldn't know it unless something caused it to transform.
3. I've never heard of a case where a Lycan had human form. Although I guess it is worth mentioning that Lycan reputedly are quite a bit more intellegent than the dog or cat you thought them to be. Not to the level of a human though.

um, I believe that is all unless I want to harp on certain people about trying to bring evolution into a topic where it really doesn't belong. Lycan are mythological in nature, not real, not backed by science in anyway.
I won't bother commenting on the psychological terms because I don't know enough about that myself. I'll have to assume you know what you're talking about until I see something to contradict you.

   As I applaud our well read friend 'The Lycanthrope', Hollywood does indeed take advantage the ignorance of the masses. In empathy with his/her frustration, please recognize the significance in lycanthropy in terms outside of fable and maybe most desired fantasy. It is an incredibly fascinating subject that supersedes any bedtime stories one could dwelve into.      On the otherhand, if bound to the semantics within the fantastic, do know this fans of Underworld. A lycan is not a werewolf alone. It's a higher form in the hierarchy of origin. A werewolf is created when a Lycan bites a human.  The lycan is the creature that manifests itself in nature's bestial mystery with no human ties other than a poor emulation by its form... or the flesh between its jaws.     Underworld, while amusingly gory and engagingly interesting, is unfaithful and subtly clich in its portrayal of these creatures. While a fan, I'm disappointed.

You people have no clue how hard it is to be a lycan. Ever since people found out what I was I've been treated different. My parents are afraid of me my classmates don't talk to me. I have been beaten so many times that I no longer know what anything else feels like.
You all may think vampires and lycans are just something that a preacher or religious person made up but there real. Everyone thinks they know pain but guess what you don't have any idea what pains me and my kind endure. Do you know what it feels like to suddenly lose control and listen to their screams while you have no control over what your doing

Nothing is evil by nature -- only by choice. Terror of discovery (followed by ridicule or rejection) inhibits the self-development of many real vampires and werewolfs. When they reach out for friendship, they are often reaching out for help. All you claim your roots of power, take a few steps back and look at the grand scheme of things. All you who think you can over power humans upon you awakening think again. Your not the only beings that exist on this planet that have the ability to change the course of this planet. When you declare you selfs the enemy of man understand the others may choose to defend that of which you choose to destroy.
Watch yourselfs your choices to come will not only effect your live but lives to come.

good answer alkanna the word lycan mean to morph to change your apperance,, if you watch the film and listen to what is being said then all of you would no that werewolf is what it is...... lycan was the name of the clan created by the first werewolf therfore taking the name to change apperance ,,its just the meaning of the word and till now it has stuck to the were wolf but in real terms its not a were wolf
although i must say on the other hand odo in deep space nine is a shape shifter also a lycan .. so i do understand the meaning behind the phraze and why its used so commonly for the werewolf... thank you for your time

Lycanthropy is the metamorphosis from man to beast...whatever the beast may be.  So using the word Lycan...which is the beginning of lycanthropy...is logical.  It also would bring about interest, as it has, in what the hell is a lycan...lol
The fact of the matter is this is a good movie with an interesting theme.  I enjoyed it and think I would probably watch underworld 2,3,4,5,6,...etc..

Everyone who stated an opinion on just how real lycans, werewolves (if you think the 2 are different), and vampires are or are not is entirely right.

Everyone believes what they want to believe, and for those who believe that these things don't exist, your belief is every bit as valid as those who do and vice versa.

As for anyone who felt they had to sling a little mud in this, especially those looking forward to unbelievers learning the hard way, only time will end out telling who's beliefs were right, and who's were wrong. I'm not going to pretend to know. I do know one thing though...

Evolution is over-rated.

The word Lycan is derived from Lycaon. according to Mythology Lycaon was the king of Arcadia who was generally disliked by most of his people. in one occasion he was to entertain  Jupiter, however Lycaon refused to believe that  the man standing in front of him was Jupiter himself, so he deviced a test. During the meal, Lycaon presented human flesh to Jupiter as the main course, believing that if this was indeed Jupiter he would know about the meal and would not eat it. Jupiter noticed this right away and in punishment, he turned Lycaon and his children into wolves giving rise to the word Lycan.

Idiots pure idiots. If you want to know what a liken is look into Mythology. We all know who Zeus is right, ha i thought sow he was a Greek God. One day he dress as a peasant and went to the court of king Lyon's. Lyons found out it was Zeus and tried to kill him. Zeus found out and turned him into a wolf as punishment. As you see Lyons fled and the race has been growing ever sense.

For you people who say these people who call theme-selves lichens and vampires. Shut up just shut up, leave them alone. Anyway how do you know these creatures don't exist. Have you interviewed everyone on earth. Have you searched everywhere on earth. If you haven't you obliviously don't have an answer to the question whether ore not they exist. I believe that there is a possibility that mythical creatures exist but i can say that i am not one of them. Any one who is offend by these JACK**** should contact me on my email espn_68@hotmail.com. The kings name is spelled wrong i can not type his name right sorry.

I would leave words as "abomination" and such to yourself...for the Blood Races are real..and yes some people have the Mental Lycanthrope Disorder, but some people are actually werewolves...(I have Werewolf friends) and Lycans and Werewolves are similar, but Lycan is more along the lines of every animal, which Homosapian would be under, but also Werewolf is the Mythological term to describe homosapian Lycanthropes.

Just to make things odder, I shall tell you I am a Vampyre. (With the Y!) And Underworld, and the second one Evolution, they were quite accurate, but see only one thing, IT IS HOLLYWOOD! Hollywood makes us Vampyres seem to be able to turn into bats before, have hypnotic powers to suck blood from the necks of people, and turn to ash in the sun. The same with Werewolves. As one said on here, all myth is from Fact. When Vampyres and Werewolves were found out..what would normal people do? Exaggerate! Thus making what we view Vampyres and Werewolves today.
There are many truths and fictions in that movie, and in the world, that many, many people will never understand..

heres something new for ALL of you:
all of your answeres have been excellent, but heres the scoop on werewolfs: When a human is bitten by a wolf on the full moon, he/she turns into an uncontrollable beast on the next full moon. But they can learn to control themselves when they are beasts and can even learn to transform into their beastly forms at will.  this takes extremely hard work and an immence amount of time. the lycan must track down the wolf that bit him/her and drink its blood before 12 moon cycles have been completed or the wolf dies. they are all immortal and i hope this has given you all a good understanding of lycans

Ok. I have not really done alot of research myself. This is really the first time I have went out and looked at the whole Lycan/Vamp deal. Actually I came here to see if the movie was good, and I saw how people posted how they were all this other stuff. Saying they were Lycan and whatnot. Yeah. They exist. But I doubt the ones who said that are them. An example of a half Lycan would be my g/f. She is pale skinned, takes the pain of others around her, silver DOES hurt her, and she has been "in tune" with dogs all her life. Myself, I believe I might be part angel. Not sure. Thats why I look up on it. Want to talk? AOL IM me. Bluepumpkinville.

basically, Lucina is short for lycanthrope. a lycanthrope is a werewolf, but humans suffer from a rare deseise known as lycanthropy. this causes the human brain to think he or she is a werewolf, although they cannt change form, the beast is inside them, in their heads. and they are just as dangerous and strong as a real werewolf when ahgered, it is rumored that people qith lycanthopy are doomed to become werewolves in their next life. your probley wondering how i know all this.
well im a proffeser of anthropolgy at the university of toronto. for 11 years i have studied human shape changing the brain. plus the fact that i am werewolf adds to my knoledge.

Okay if some of you kids take some time of your social life, and read a little philospy you might know the answer to this questoin.

Lycans are a nickname to werewolves.Lycan stands for Lyconies a great king of old. Know this king tried to kill zeus (the king of  greek gods), but zeus stopped him, and turned him into a wolf. Lyconies esaped into the wild, and thus the werewolf natoin was started.

Its not to hard to find. Plus if you go to a movie guide about underworld. It will tell you.

Knows to you reaper, and all you other worldies. The world holds many secrets science doesnt always answer everything. There is magic in this world, and you better believe that vampires, and Werewolves exist. Whether they are demons in Satans legoins, or free roaming creatures they DO exist, and there out there in the darkness of night. There is a world outside of your's reaper.

Im not saying i am a creature. Im human just like you.

In the Underworld films, Lycans display a number of enhanced physical attributes. As with their rivals the vampires, Lycans are immortal, able to live for hundreds of years (William survived over 800 years of captivity with no food or water). They possess great physical strength, durability and speed, and have been seen to power through solid concrete walls in Lycan form. It should be noted that in wolf form Lycans seem to be far stronger than the vampires, as every hand-to-hand confrontation between the two races under normal circumstances has ended with a Lycan victory. A first-generation Lycan was able to swat a fully armoured vampire at least ten feet through the wall of a villager's hut. These traits seem to apply even when the Lycans are in human form, as Lucian was seen to be able to catch a moving car, and subsequently survive being hit by it at point blank range with no injuries. Lycans can also use their claws and strength to scale sheer surfaces, having been seen to crawl along walls at speed in pursuit of prey.

Lycans also possess amazing physical resilience and great regenerative abilities: both Lucian and Raze are wounded, by silver bullets and Selene's throwing stars respectively, yet they bear no marks or scars when they reappear later in the film. Their recovery abilities are hampered by the presence of silver in their bodies. However, to older Lycans, the silver is rarely fatal. Lucian displayed the ability to force Selene's silver bullets out of his body through muscle strength and sheer force of will, although it is mentioned in the first film that the silver is fatal if it penetrates the internal organs. They possess heightened senses (which allow for them to detect the presence of vampires), and the ability to land on their feet, like cats do, as seen with Lucian, after being hit by Selene with her car; and Michael, after leaping out of the window of the Death Dealer safe house from several stories high. Silver, whether bullets or blades, are the Lycans' only weakness, as they seem to be violently allergic to it. A new variation on this is the use of Silver nitrate bullets to inject the silver directly into a Lycan'sbloodstream.

Although originally Lycans could only transform at the full moon, it is also explained that the older a lycan becomes in age, the more control he can exert over his transformation, to the point that he can change at will, possessing full mental control of his wolf form. In their wolf form, Lycans also have access to the formidable fangs and claws, making them deadly close-quarters fighters. To date only one female of the species has been shown, in a brief cameo when Raze brings a dead Trix back to their lair, which has led some to believe that the race is primarily male. while others theorise that the groups seen in the movies are akin to guerrilla cells and so do not represent Lycan society.

A special note should be made of William, the original Lycan (or Lycan Elder, as Selene refers to him in the novelisation of Underworld: Evolution). William possessed the same physical traits as his offspring, but to a much augmented degree. His strength was such that he was able to engage his Hybrid relative Michael Corvin in combat, winning at first and only being forced back due to the helicopter's minigun - especially impressive as Michael had just killed several first-generation Lycans with ease. He was also resilient to the UV gunfire of Selene. Although the rounds penetrated, they barely seemed to slow him down, and only the previously mentioned minigun seemed to have any kind of lasting effect. His muscle power was such that he was able to leap dozens of feet when escaping Selene's explosive shuriken.

William's form of lycanthropy is the most primitive, and also the most powerful. He has the most lupine features, with a long snout and pointed ears giving him a marked resemblance to a real wolf. He is also far larger than his offspring. William is the most savage Lycan seen (with an insatiable appetite for rampage, according to Andreas Tanis), and also cannot revert to his human form. Unlike later Lycans, he has a full pelt of fur all over his body. It should also be noted that while every other Lycan seen in the films has black fur, William is an albino Lycan.

These Lycans were created after being bitten by William. Similarly to William, they are complete savages with no control over themselves and the inability to revert to a human form. Physically, they are more humanised facially, with a shorter snout and a lack of pointed ears. They have less fur than William.

These are modern Lycans descended from the 1st generation. They have learned to transform back to their human form, and are able to change into lycan form when the moon is full. Those who have been Lycans for longer have learned to transform at will regardless of the moon. They resemble Ist generation Lycans, but their faces are much shorter, and the least lupine in appearance. They also have far less fur than the first-generation LycansWhile not a fourth variant, a Hybrid is a fusion of Lycan and Vampire at the cellular level. As such it is far stronger than both, with none of the weaknesses. The physical appearance of a Hybrid varies depending on the species it was first. A Hybrid with a Lycan dominant side resembles a Lycan in appearance. However, their faces are only slightly elongated, and their eyes are completely black. They also have little or no fur and black skin. They also have talons like a Lycan, and the animalistic posture of a Lycan. Michael Corvin was the first of this kind of Hybrid to be seen. A Hybrid who was a Vampire first, on the other hand, has more physical attributes betraying its Vampire ancestry. While it shares the black eyes, black skin, Lycan talons and musculature of a Lycan dominant Hybrid, a Vampire dominant Hybrid has noticably bat-like ears flattened into its head, a bat-like nose, no hair at all and taloned wings. Marcus Corvinus was the first of this type of Hybrid to be seen.

Oh my God. I mean seriously, what the hell is going on here? I have read every reply so far and think that some of you really know how to talk out of your backsides. To seriously believe that there are werewolf's and Vampires is slightly absurd. Although I have skepticism over the existence of werewolf's and the latter, Lycan's or so I have just read, seems a particularly interesting subject, one of which I will look into during spare time, <3. However seriously, you guys who believe you are actually Lycans with the physical and mental ability to shift forms must have nothing better to do them span perfectly good boards with your nonsense. People should know better in this day and age, we are not as gullible as we were say a few years ago. Seriously, get a life - preferably one not to do with over use of the computer, it seems to have done something to your minds. Every body else, fine topic, I have learnt much of which I did not expect. Special thanks to The Lycanthrope, who seems to have smoothed things out a little.

an abomination isnt actually what they are called, viktor just said it was an abomintation (not good) because he belived that the blending of the species would be bad, as it would be too strong to defeat, if the lycans had it, they would overpower them, if the vampires had them, they may become corrupt and whatnot
