Free's Soul Expanding

Free's soul as it expands from transforming.

Werewolf physically carry both Human and wolf-like characteristics, although their "true" form resides in their wolf-like form with their souls shaped with the characteristics of a wolf.[1] In the anime, the soul of a Werewolf individual seems to be green in color, possessing both Human traits and Werewolf traits that can be sensed by a user of Soul Perception.[2]

From Free's account, many Werewolves in the past have a shaky relation with humanity and as a result, are mistaken to be beleived to be Demons taking the form of a wolf.[3]
