''Wolfbreed'' is an homage to ''ElfenLied.'' However, the author actually gives credit to the original work. Despite it having a considerably happier ending, it's every bit as violent and gory as its counterpart.

* {{Expy}}: Lilly is Lucy and the first book is pretty much ''ElfenLied'' in TheMiddleAges [[RecycledInSpace With WEREWOLVES!]].

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Wojewoda Telek. He's probably the most level-headed and competent commander in either book. [spoiler: He also recognizes that Maria was innocent and tried to stop Darien. He repays her by kicking the Order troops out of his lands, gives her back her silver cross and tells her in a not-so-subtle way that he might have need of her special talents in the near future.]]

* BlatantLies: Josef's explanation to Telek and Heinrich about why Maria is an ordinary human girl towards the end of the second book [[spoiler: after showing them Darien's flayed skin to prove he was dead. The thing is both Heinrich and Telek know he's lying. Heinrich wants to kill Maria but he doesn't have proof to contradict Josef's story. Telek, however, has already come to the conclusion that werewolves aren't inherently evil, that Maria is innocent and that having her around might prove useful in the near future. So he promptly tells Heinrich to get the hell off his land.]]

* OhCrap:
** Whenever any of the werewolves shapeshift into their man-wolf or dire-wolf forms somebody has this reaction.
** Telek and Josef have this reaction when they see that [[spoiler: Maria's face heals up pretty damn quickly from Heinrich's blows.]]
** Heinrich has this reaction when Telek name-drops Brother Seymon; showing that he knows the Order didn't always consider the wolfbreed demonic and that the demonic label is there less because the werewolves are inherently evil and more because the Order is trying to hide its own sordid past.

** Averted with Maria in the sequel. She is pretty idealistic, compassionate and carefree at the start of her story. She gets put through the ringer but manages to come out with that idealism and love of humanity still fairly intact. Played straight with Darien as his flashback chapter starts with the phrase: ''Twenty-two years ago, when he was a child, Darien hadnít hated anyone at all.'' But then his stupidity and impulsiveness starts to wreck his life and it goes downhill fairly quickly.



* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler: The Polish nobility comes to the conclusion that werewolves are simply different but not evil. Of course, Maria's meeting with Wojewoda Telek at the end of the second book implies they intend to use the wolfbreed themselves, specifically Maria and her offspring, for similar purposes like the Teutonic Order tried to but they are gonna be much nicer about it then the Order was.]]



* ImAHumanitarian: Darien views ordinary humans as being in the same category as deer and cows.



* TheNoseKnows: Wolfbreed have a powerful sense of smell even within human form. For example, Darien is able to tell that Maria is another werewolf just by scent while both are in their human forms and having just met each other.

* NoSocialSkills: Darien lived a very sheltered childhood, raised in a culture that viewed themselves as being more wolf than human and then lived in the wilds by himself for several years. As a result, he doesn't understand Maria's emotions and conversations and interactions between him and her are all about dominance and submission. Maria is very put off about this, [[spoiler: and it is one of the big reasons that she ends siding with Josef in the love triangle.]]

* CoverBlowingSuperpower: The wolfbreed have one in their healing factor. Unless they are either holding, wearing or been wounded by silver they will heal any injury that doesn't destroy the head or the heart very quickly. [[spoiler: This is how Josef and the Knights find out about what Maria really is.]]



* InsaneTrollLogic: Darien has this affliction bad. To take just one example, after forcing Maria on a romp through the forest with him, and trying to force himself upon her, she sneaks away while he's asleep and runs back home; forgetting to take her silver cross along with her in the rush of trying to get away from his ass. Darien wakes up, sees her clothes gone and sees the cross still there, immediately comes to the conclusion she has gone to kill her human family, whom she has been incredibly protective of the entire book, as opposed to getting away from his {{Yandere}} ass. [[spoiler: Then there is his little attempt to make her see that HumansAreBastards. How exactly did he come to the conclusion that framing her for murder and turning the local garrison against her and her family will make her hate humanity as opposed to his ass?]]

* NeverMyFault: Another affliction that Darien has pretty damn bad. [[spoiler: For example, when walking through his recently razed hometown he keeps screaming at the burned corpses it wasn't his fault, he didn't lead TheTeutonicKnights to the village. Of course, he is responsible and he did lead their army to the village and deep down he knows this but refuses to admit it.]]

* AntiVillain: Many of TheTeutonicKnights are shown to be kind and just people. Lilly manages to get out of her cell mainly because her guard is something of a romantic idealist. Even Landkomtur Erhad, head of the SuperSoldier program, cares for his charges, tries to fight the KillThemAll edict on the WolfBreed, genuinely cares for his men and is definitely concerned for the safety of the peasants in the immediate area of Lilly's escape.
