Title: HIV and Werewolves
Post by: nottled on December 29, 2008, 08:33:03 am
I've been wondering what would happen if someone with HIV was bitten by a werewolf. As their immune system is virtually non-existent, would it take less to turn them?

And would it then be gone, when they become werewolf?!

I think if it can cure cancer then AIDS is toast. However their weakened immune system may make it harder for them to survive the change.

I'm re-reading BB and I see that the exact wording is "in order to become a werewolf, you have to be savaged to the point that your immune system won't drive off the magic."

I would think that HIV or any immune system attacking disease would leave someone more vulnerable. Especially if they were in advanced stages. I also think this interesting as Warren is gay and he may have had some lovers pre-Kyle.....see where I'm going with this? I've seen guys with full blown AIDS out drinking at a club one week, looking perfectly normal and dead the next week from pneumonia.

HIV might make it easier to change someone into a werewolf --  however, as twobatfans pointed out -- if someone is already weakened, surviving the change is tough.   And the change isn't merely biological . . . there's a magical factor at work as well that can throw all predictions off.
Best,
