Joseph has always had an interest in the werewolf creature over the years. He researched and discovered the myth of the Lobison.
Lobison is the translated word for Werewolf in Argentina. The Lobison is usually the seventh son in a family (whereas the seventh daughter is doomed to be a witch). When one turns into a hairy creature that resembles both a man and a wolf, the Lobison (a legend greatly influenced by the Brazilian traditions), wanders in the hills and mountains, feeding mostly upon carrion. However, if they do come in contact with a human being, they will instantly attack. The survivors (men and women) will then turn into Lobisones themselves, but it quite rare, because most people die in the claws and teeth of these ferocious creatures. It is also said that if a Lobison's saliva sprinkles over a man or a woman, he or she will eventually turn into a Lobison.
In the early 1900's, the legend of the seventh son, (it had to be seven boys in a row, no girls in between), transforming himself into a werewolf was so widespread and believed, that it was causing a lot of children to be abandoned or given away for adoption. And in some rare cases, the parents killed their own son.
