For April, Stone is celebrating the A to Z Blog Challenge with daily letter-themed entries. A separate page with a list of all these entries, plus Character Profiles and Book Synopses will appear on the right hand side of the page in coming weeks, detailing the people, places and things of the Stone Soldiers universe.

Book of Stone: Überwolves
(A Stone Soldiers Encyclopedia Entry)

In 2013, the Stone Soldiers encountered one of their deadliest foes yet: the Überwolves. Bigger, stronger and faster than any werewolf yet seen, these artificially-created monsters proved more than a match for the petrified men of Detachment 1039. 

A post WWII project to create super soldiers for the impending 4th Reich, the Überwolves were the result of a project to hybridize vampires and werewolves. The monsters were created at a secret base in Neu Schwabenland, Antarctica, under the supervision of the Ahnenerbe well after the conclusion of World War II. Dubbed "Überwolves" by Dr. William King, the creatures possessed superior strength and speed to either vampires or werewolves, and none of their traditional weaknesses such as a stake through the heart or an allergy to silver. The Überwolves were genetically-modified clones of Heinrich Himmler, with blond hair and blue eyes and  were taller and generally more fit. The Überwolves could assume human form at will, a vampire-humanoid form or the form of the Überwolf, a  larger, more muscular form of a werewolf, over eight feet tall with white-blonde hair they could turn black at will.

They remained in hiding until late 2013, when the last of the scientists who created them had passed away. Unsupervised, the seven clones decided to strike out against those they felt had led to their creation and terrible existence at the South Pole: the Nazi Hunters of the 20th Century. The Überwolves began murdering retired Nazi Hunters around the world from their Antarctic base, revealing their existence in the process. (Seven Deadly Sons)

The Überwolves were alphabeticallty named; Bernhard, Carl, Dietrich, Ekhart, Friedrich, Gerhart, Heinrich, Imre, with Bernhard being the pack  leader. All seven of the Überwolves were killed in Antarctica, their bodies and DNA locked away for further research in the future.
