Wamasus are creatures that once inhabited in the Black Marsh. Northern men considered them to be intelligent dragons with lightning for blood.
A large form of lycanthrope said to be prominent in northern tundras of Tamriel. Almost thought to be folklore in Nordic cultures. Legend holds that smearing canis root on the trees surrounding one's home wards off werebears. Hunting packs of this strain have been found on the island of Solstheim.
A lycanthrope of the boarish persuasion which attacks with both fore arms as well as its long teeth. It requires silver or better weapons to be hit and anyone it bites has a small chance of becoming a wereboar themselves. The wereboar is found almost exclusively in High Rock.
A mysterious lycanthrope with no reputable sightings and possibly created by folklore or myth.
The most common of lycanthropes found in Tamriel. It can attack with both its claws and its teeth. Werewolves also can inflict lycanthropy with its bite. While Sanies Lupinus causes all werewolves to transform under the influences of the moons, the members of The Circle can control their beast forms. In return they must serve Hircine in the afterlife. Silver weaponry is very effective against werewolves.

Wisperills are luminescent films which float through the air in the realm of the Hist. They perform slow, colorful, aerial dances in the air. They were named by Mere-Glim and Fhena when Umbriel was brought to the realm.
Wispmothers are magical energy beings found in the wilds of Skyrim. These spirit women appear to be either a higher form of Wisp, or creators of them. Able to teleport and restore their health, Wispmothers can also summon multiple shades, which are weak clones of themselves. Killing a Wispmother causes all of its attendant Wisps and Shades to die.
Many legends and theories exist which seek to explain the true nature of the Wispmother. Locals variously believe them to be remnants of the ancient Falmer, ghosts or natives of Hjaalmarch. Master Sadren Sarethi proposed that they are a forgotten type of lich from the First Era. Lydette Viliane of the Synod proposed that they are elemental personifications of snow or mist.
- Variations: Alpha Wolf, Dire Wolf, Shardwolf, Twilight Wolf
