Who hasn't worried that their rage could manifest in an uncontrolled manner, like a human transforming into a werewolf? Who hasn't felt that a so-called friend acts in a way reminiscent of a vampire, sucking the life, the joy, even the money from those closest to them? Who hasn't darkly fantasized about becoming a witch or warlock, with the power to strip others of their free will, making them do as you want, regardless of the moral consequences?
