Those that men call Werewolves or Lycanthropes call themselves the Hounds of God, as they claim their transformation is a gift from their creator, and they repay the gift with their tenacity, for they will pursue an evildoer to the very gates of Hell. – The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
I came across this quote while reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and thought that it was incredibly applicable to Scott McCall from Teen Wolf. Recently I finished watching (again) season 4 of Teen Wolf. Since it was Halloween, I thought I’d share it.
There are three particular things that I like about this quote. Firstly, the part where “they claim their transformation is a gift” which is something Derek and Scott have stated themselves. The second part is that they will “pursue an evildoer to the very gates of Hell”, which is something Scott and his pack does, i.e. protect the innocent rather than to protect specifically humans or supernaturals – they protect anyone who’s life is threatened.
The last part is that I like is that they “pursue an evildoer” – they do not kill, they do not end their life, necessarily, but they chase after them, they ensure that those people do not cause harm.
Plus, again, perfect gifs for Halloween.
Till next time,
