EVOLVED LYCANS (UNDERWORLD)
By injecting the Corvinus Strain of Eve’s blood into a Lycan, Jacob Lane turns his son in the first Lycan-Corvinus Strain Hybrid. Later, he started to inject himself with the Strain although he was only at the start of the treatment. Quint was eventually killed by Vampire-Corvinus Strain Hybrid Selene while Jacob was killed by Eve with some help from David.
This new type of Lycan is physically far larger and stronger than any previous generation, William and Lucian included. In addition, Lycans of this generation possess at least a partial immunity to silver, allowing them to be shot and stabbed with weapons made of silver without major consequences and heal almost instantly.
Later, using the blood of Michael Corvin, the new Lycan leader Marius turned himself into an immensely powerful Lycan-Corvinus Strain Hybrid, but he required the blood of Eve to cement his transformation and occasionally had to drink small vials of Michael’s blood to keep his transformation intact. He was killed by Selene after she received enhanced powers from the Nordic Coven.
