"Come gather round children and Spider will tell you how werewolves were made, once the worlds were one, flesh did not excist, spirits to take what form they pleased only their alien imagination were their limits. But something changed, something happend, flesh came to be some spirits could only take one form and not change back, they could not roam the spirit realms no more, they were trapped upon the back of the mother godess.
Many more years passed when flesh and spirit separated, the two worlds which was once one were now two the spirits in flesh had forgotten what it was like to be spirit and the spirits themselves had started to retain only one form as well but had forgotten what it was like to be free and careless, their form was now their function. Both worlds mirrors another that of flesh and that of spirit.
Luna saw herself as the protector of the shadowrealm, that where fleshless spirit roams, where helios sees himself as the protector of the realm of flesh.
From time to time the realms meet again, leaving openings to wander through, leaving fleshilings to die within the barren shadows of Lunas realm, or spirits harass the realm of the fleshlings to gain power and energies they generate through emotion and action.
Luna chose a champion to protect her realm, wolf stood proud at her side to guard her borders
Helios chose a champion as well, Man rose to rule the lands of flesh to protect his borders, but alas still could they not hinder the meetings, and when it happen Man and spirit wolf clashed in battle, to protect their borders. Luna weeped and Helios was furious, not even their champion could protect their lands. But then Luna and Helios met, Helios let his light be hidden by Lunas shadow, they spoke long of what to do and decided that only one champion, who could cross both realms was needed. And thus the essence of man and the essence of wolf melded into one. To stalk the shadow of cast by light. Werewolves came to protect the borders. Many many years passed and Luna and Helios pleased and tired from their work went to slumber... but little did they know what problems would arise.
Man feared wolf and all he did not understand, so werewolves could not show themselves to them to act as a true champion of the realm and the spirits were not pleased to be guarded by halflings, to be hindered to harvest the sweet energies of the lands beyond the shadow.
So werewolves learned to hide themselves, to protect their lands from hiding, and try to keep the alien minds of the spirits away from those of flesh so they do not spoil their lands... even Helios and Lunas children forgot their true purpose, with all the world and the things that go bump in the night, with the alien spirits who disslikes their policing.... a hostile world indeed, all a Garou has is his pack... maybe his tribe on his side.. if he is lucky."
Just a taste... not very good but I hope it gives a feel for it. Dark survival with abit of spiritualism, the spirit realms is a dark and dangerous place, with less then friendly inhabitants if not carefull.
Abit mixing and shaking on the mythology, its not final but it gives a bit of a basic structure at least.
