Behind the scenesEdit
The werefolk are written as Werefolk or Were Folk in the game's text (only viewable using Sci Viewer). In King's Quest Companion, they are referred to as Were Folk and Were-folk.
The word "were" in this sense actually comes from the Old English word for "man", making "were-folk" translate to "man-folk". A werewolf would be a 'man-wolf', etc.
