Vanessa Monroe: There's no record of werewolf mythology in Mystic Falls, but here are some records of some of the lesser known legends. Everything from a Scandinavian Skin Walkers to the Marsh L'durets. 'Tu De Citli Mesli' which roughly translates into 'The Curse of the Sun and the Moon'
Alaric Saltzman: It's Native American?
Vanessa Monroe: Aztec. It explains one origin of the werwolf curse traced through Virginia. The short story, 600 years ago, the Aztecs were plagued by werewolves and vampires. They terrorized the countryside, made farming and hunting impossible, until an Aztec Sharman cursed them. Making vampires slaves to the sun and werewolves servants of the moon. As a result, vampires could only prowl at night and werewolves could only turn on a full moon. When the full moon crest is in the sky, whosever unlucky enough to fall under the werwolf curse turns into a wolf.
Damon Salvatore: Can they control the transformation?
Vanessa Monroe: If it were a choice, it wouldn't be called "a curse". Werewolves will attack humans, but instinct in centuries of rivalry have hard-wired them to hunt their prey of choice. Vampires.
[Everyone looks at her]
Damon Salvatore: Well, if werewolves are hunting vampires, I would know about it.
Vanessa Monroe: Not if there aren't that many werewolves left alive. Hundreds of years ago vampires hunted them to almost to extinction.
Elena Gilbert: Why would they do that?
Vanessa Monroe: To protect themselves. Legend has it that a werewolf bite is fatal to vampires.
