Werewolf Code of Conduct

"That was far easier than I thought it would be. I needn't have learned about the 1637 Werewolf Code of Conduct or the uprising of Elfric the Eager."
-- Hermione after the first year History of Magic exam (PS16)

An ultimately unsuccessful rule framework developed by the Ministry of Magic in 1637 for the control of Werewolves (Pm)

  • The Werewolf Code of Conduct of 1637 was meant to give Werewolves a framework for coexisting safely and legally within the wizarding world. Werewolves were required to sign a copy of the Code and promise to refrain from attacking and biting non-werewolves. They were also supposed to lock themselves away during their wolf transformation periods. (Pm)
  • As no undeclared werewolf wanted to go into the Ministry and admit to being one, none ever signed up to the Code. (Pm)
