Years ago, I was playing  ‘Vampire: the Masquerade – Redemption’ and listening to an internet radio station.  As my coterie of vamps was leaving the Tower of London zone, we were jumped by a werewolf, the only one in the main storyline.  What was playing on the radio? ‘Werewolves of London’, of course.

Though that one is entirely coincidental, I have another gaming story connected to werewolves which may not be entirely so.  I was creating a City of Villains character who was a person cursed by a fallen angel to become a werewolf-like beast.  Since most angels within the Abrahamic mythos have names that mean something in Hebrew and end in “el”, I named the character “Zevael”, since “zev” is apparently the Hebrew word for wolf.

When writing the above story, it occurred to me that the singer of “Werewolves of London” was Warren Zevon.  I do not know if or how his surname and song subject may be connected.

[EDITOR: The first one’s a pure moment of funny timing. The latter story is an interesting one because it combines two possible extra elements to what we see: one is merely anomaly-hunting, finding three letters and the writer of a song and deciding they connect; the other is the possibility of the subconscious affecting the name and rendering this a purposeful, if not consciously planned, connection. Another thought: the lead role in Teen Wolf was played by? Michael J. FOX. How about THAT for a crazy connection? What? Why are you looking at me like I’m the crazy one?]
