Day Seventeen (17). Werewolf [Ashina].
According to the Gokturk ethnogenic myth, the Ashina were half wolf, half man. The offspring of the she-wolf, Asena, and the infant she suckled and raised; fierce warriors and the founders what is now Turkey.
In some legends the bite of a werewolf is fatal to a vampire... Interestingly, an often overlooked detail in the downfall of Vlad Tepes [or Caziglu Bey, as he was known by the Turks] was defeated by his Younger brother, Radu Dracula; a Janissary at the command of the Turkish Sultan, and ordered to bring his head back to Constantinople as proof of the Impaler Prince's demise.
Easily credited as the noted figure to have been alleged to be a vampire, met his end with his own brother, Radu... [a variation of Rudolf] which as it happens, means "wise old wolf" at Cape Town, Western Cape
