Some veteran lycanthropes are drifters; forever on the road in one peripatetic adventure after another. But let's face it, that gets old quick especially for those who live unnaturally long lives. The sage veteran will carve him/herself out a territory where the hunting is easy and the illicit money making schemes are easier.
Marking a territory puts any other lycanthrope passing through on notice to keep moving. As you already know from my prior blogs, Frank Bruce werewolves are solitary killers, proverbial lone wolves, who will not tolerate another lycanthrope in their space. The territory also delineates the lycanthrope's business sphere of influence.
Lycanthropes need money, too. Because veteran lycanthropes are all pretty much evil to the core they have no moral dilemmas entering into business deals with thugs, killers, narcotics sellers, gangs, crime families, etc. It is not uncommon for them to advertise themselves as guns for hire, or "fixers" of problems. Some ambitious lycanthropes head their own gangs and profit handsomely from the stream of money trickling in from all their shady businesses.
