In 1691, a Latvian peasant named Thiess claimed in a court of law that he was a werewolf. Scholar Bruce Lincoln said Thiess lived in a region known as Livonia, "An area that is, to werewolves, what Transylvania is to vampires.” Lincoln told Inside Edition Digital that werewolves were thought to be “agents of Satan.” But Thiess surprised the court by claiming that werewolves were agents of good, who descended into Hell to fight Satan.
