Remus Lupin is a character that is introduced in the Prisoner of Azkaban. He is a good friend of Harry's late father and he has another identity that makes him special. He is a werewolf! Poor guy, gets bitten by a mean werewolf as a kid and has to undergo the harrowing transformation every full moon night when he has absolutely no control over himself.
In contrast to this identity, Lupin is a very righteous man who is on the good side fighting the dark forces. In fact one of Rowling's characters falls in love with him and marries him overcoming his initial resistance. This part of the plot points to the direction of seeing beyond people's flaws and being inclusive .
Another story where I came across werewolf is the TV series "Once Upon a Time" where in, all the fairy tales that we know of are given a different twist and kind of interwoven into a story of today's times. Here our little red riding hood is not a little girl but a young woman and is a WEREWOLF!! She wears the red riding hood to actually shield her from the transformation and to control her characteristics.
Who can forget the wolves of the Jungle book? The first animated version where the mother wolf is so strong willed and the wolf chieftain Akira! He and Dumbledore have similar qualities - mature, experienced and strong leaders!
I remember a picture that was doing rounds on social media , a while ago about a pack of wolves walking in the snow and there was a lot of "lessons to be learnt" about the formation and leadership and so on. Apparently all that came with that is not true as per many fact or fiction websites.
I have a darling little niece and once I showed her a picture of a wolf and did an "Awoooo" with my head tilted up . She caught on immediately and would go Awooo every time we asked her how the wolf cries !
