User with this ability either is or can transform into Rougarou (also Roux-Ga-Roux, Rugaroo, or Rugaru), a legendary creature in Laurentian French communities linked to European notions of the werewolf.

Rougarou is said to prowl the swamps around Acadiana and Greater New Orleans, and possibly the fields or forests of the regions to feed on the blood of humans. The rougarou most often is described as a creature with a human body and the head of a wolf or dog, similar to the werewolf legend. Other stories range from the rougarou as a rabbit, being mild bigfoot creatures or cannibalistic Native American wendigos.

People become Rugarus by being bitten by another Rugaru or being cursed by a witch. In the latter claim, only a witch can make a rougarou, either by turning into a wolf herself, or by cursing others with lycanthropy.

Legend says that the rougarou returns to human form during the day. Although acting sickly, the human refrains from telling others of the situation for fear of being killed. The afflicted is under the spell for 101 days. After that time, the curse is transferred from person to person when the rougarou draws another human’s blood. Rougarous can be cured of their condition if someone else draws it's blood on the end of the hundred and one days.




  • May be vulnerable to fire or decapitation.
  • May be repelled by a Hexagon or salt.
  • May have a fear of frogs.
  • May be cured after a hundred and one days by drawing the rougarou's blood.
