Invoked thousands of years ago by an ancient druidic order, the ‘Law of the Paw’ forbade all werewolves from killing humans.
It was a law so sacred, that if ever broken, it would mean the end of the entire lupine race.
Present day America. ‘The Law’ is violently ignored, forcing the surviving werewolves to send one of their own out into the general populace to frantically find the guilty party and bring them to justice before a ruthless ethereal executioner wipes out the entire pack.
