I wanted a Werewolf to guard my castle.
But that’s impossible, because this isn’t fantasy.
It’s science fiction, and nothing changes that. And I try not to delude myself about my limitations.
So in my lab, I designed self-replicating nanobots that rewrite human DNA, transforming their host into a human-wolf hybrid of the desired ferocity.
The toughest part was ensuring they’d never spread. I don’t want a plague, after all. They only function in the bloodstream, and in wine.
How is the wine?
Anyway, you’re probably wondering why I called you. Just wondering: Would you like to guard my castle?
