This was only said in the movie. It is not in the book. The lesson in question is in chapter nine, 'Grim Defeat'.Originally posted by moonymaniac:
Also, if I remember correctly, Snape includes giving the "ways" one becomes a werewolf in his assignment to Harry's class doesn't he? That would suggest that being bitten isn't the only one. *will check PoA*
This was the only question he asked them. He assigned them homework on ways to recognize and to kill werewolves."Which of you can tell me how we distinguish between the werewolf and the true wolf?" said Snape.
While I do not believe Teddy would be a werewolf, I still think he would have had some 'effects' from his father, as would Victoire from Bill. I base this on the fact that after Bill was attacked, Remus told him he would have 'some contamination' from Greyback. This leads me to believe there is some sort of fundemental change in the blood when a werewolf attacks you.
Now, before you start about DNA and blood being different, something that affects your blood at the basic level, would possible affect other cells in your body. If the contamination was enough to affect Bill's body's response to how he wanted his meat cooked, then why couldn't it affect other aspects of his cellular makeup? I know medically there is probably very sound reasoning behind what may be in your blood not affecting your DNA, but that is RL and this is fiction. Werewolves are not RL, so the RL rules governing DNA could possible be bent just a tad.
I would think Teddy would be more likely to have inherited stronger traits than Victoire, but it is possible she did inherit something.
