Ok so I came up with this idea many months ago during the season 4 of TVD when the Silas story was getting formed .I’ve always wanted a werewolf origins story told, and this is what I’ve come up with.
Many millennia ago(even before Silas) lived identical twin brothers who loved the same witch. For ease of reading the story their names were Xander and Marcus( thanks M.factory for the tip) Both Xander and Marcus loved a witch named Lucille but they also loved each other and sometimes would pass off one as the other to her. However Lucille chose Marcus and so spelled him in such a way that if Xander ever passed off as Marcus all she ever had to do was pinch or prick Marcus and he would heal but the injury would show on Xander. She only had to see the healing take place to know if it was Marcus or not. This proved useful to the brothers as well as Xander became a leader and Marcus a brave warrior in the community. However Xander eventually got jealous of Marcus getting the better part of the deal and ending up with Lucille. Since Lucille was a servant of nature the loophole was that only something natural could kill Marcus and by natural it had to be completely outside human interference. So Xander during a hunting expedition lured Marcus into a trap to be attacked by a pack of wolves. He returned to the village to Lucille telling her Marcus has been killed and he survived showing her deep lacerations as a result of their link as proof, but Lucille saw through his ruse and cursed him to turn into a wolf every full moon and cursed his descendants as well. The curse also stood because though Marcus was killed his body remained spelled and so remained indestructible and as long as his body existed in that state the wolf curse would continue on Xander’s descendants . The legend is well known in werewolf circles and the only problem for werewolves was that attempting to destroy Marcus would kill any werewolf trying to do so outright and that is why at some point the werewolves sought the help of witches to create the five. The five were not created to destroy Silas straight away but use Silas to destroy Marcus first and have Silas destoyed in the process.Obviously the five would first kill enough vampires to get the location of Silas and then use a spell like Klaus body snatching one to channel Xander’s soul from beyond to inhabit Silas and destroy Marcus’ body to find peace and lift the curse..Since Markus and Xander were linked by Lucille, once Marcus was destroyed, the spell would destroy Silas along with him. So the main story in the present is that while most werewolves want their curse lifted by destroying Marcus’ body a small faction wants to channel Xander’s spirit into Marcus’ body before Silas is awakened and this way there would be one truly immortal werewolf and the curse though not lifted would make the werewolves all more like hybrids not immortal but able to transform at any time on a whim.
I think this would be a plausible idea to explore either in TVD or TO in perhaps season 6 and 2 respectively. We really need to have werewolf mythology explained to us .I feel this story would explain werewolf origins and give a plot that would expand on the current story arc of Silas and give opportunity to develop a new plot say in season 6 plus it would also explain why werewolves hate immortals and vampires. What do you guys/girls think?
