Werekin are a particularly brutal breed of shape-shifting demons which take the form of various predatory animals, albeit a humanoid beast version. They are often described as being more dangerous than even vampires due to their similar levels of resilience and superior strength.
Also called Wolfmen or Lycans, Werewolves are the most well-known form of werekin.
Before the days of Ultimate or even The Dawn, Werewolves were plentiful. In Dawn, when he and a teenage Walter face off against The Captain, Alucard recognizes what he is immediately, indicating he's run into their kind before. Given the Hellsing Organization's mission and purpose, it is possible that they were fully or partially responsible for the near extinction of Werewolf-kind.
Alucard remarks he thought their species had been defeated, implying that The Captain is last of his kind.
In general, Werewolves appear to be stronger than Vampires, even the modified vampire Alucard. What they can naturally do and not is unclear, as it is possible the Doctor tampered with The Captain's biology, making him modified like Alucard.
