Powers/Abilities: Transformed into a werewolf Lisa's human physical abilities increased making her stronger, quicker and more agile. She had strong, long fangs and claws, pointed ears and probably a better sense of smell. Her instincts drove her to kill to eat, as wolves do, but she could exert a certain control over her instincts. Her transformation happened during full moon and she could not avoid it. She could infect others with the the curse of the werewolf through her bite. The curse kept her young even if she was far older. Her transformation into werewolf was not instantaneous and took three minutes.

History: (Monsters Unleashed#1 (fb) - BTS) - Lisa was a werewolf. She was an old woman, who looked like a girl thanks to her curse.
    For months she lived in a valley of woods where she killed animals, men and women.
    One day Lisa met Charles, a writer, and the two fell in love. Charles had already a wife, Violet, who went to visit him in the valley. Lisa schemed with Charles to drive Violet crazy.

(Monsters Unleashed#1 (fb)) - Without explaining anything to Charles Lisa became a werewolf by night and scared Violet by faking to hunt her.

lisa's true face(Monsters Unleashed#1) - The next day Lisa met Charles again, promising Violet would go completely insane with fear that night.
   That evening Lisa was visited by Charles again, but due to the full moon she transformed into a werewolf. Lisa ran away to the house where Violet was left alone, broke through a window and attacked Violet, biting her in the neck, infecting her with the curse of the Werewolf. She could not kill Violet because Charles stopped her.
    Wile running into the woods a hunter, Pierre, saw her. Believing that she was the wolf who had killed so many people and animals in the valley, Pierre shot the werewolf and killed her. Her body reverted to her true form, a very old woman.
   A few hours after, her curse completed its course. Violet became a werewolf and killed Charles taking her revenge on him.

    When she was a werewolf, Lisa had a certain degree of control over her actions. For example, when Charles was present she did not attack him, and she also was able to hunt a specific prey: Violet. In the end she was trying to kill Violet, but Charles arrived in time to stop her.
    Charles claimed that he had heard the same howl for 6 nights, the howl of a hungry wolf. Two possible explanations:
