Necro Werewolf?

Throughout my time playing ESO I typically enjoy having a backstory for my characters.

I've been a stout follower of Hircine; my Khajiit stamPlar being a "Priest of the Hungry Cat"....however I cannot seem to find a fitting reason of why a stamCro would follow Hircine.

Is there any lore or supposed reasoning why a stam Necro would follow Hircine

    One dies not need to tie a worshiped diety in to a class. Kirah her self is a werebeast sent by hircine to start a pack on nirn she just happened to take the firm of a khajiit and learned to fight like a night blade. Besides necromancer means unlimited chew bones!

    Just because you have become part of the pack, does not mean that you have to follow Hircine.

    My Khajiit warden was saved from a cursed death, by a Wood-Orc friend giving him Lycanthropy.
    Although Washargo refuses to give up being a werewolf, he doesn't follow Hircine and is currently searching for a way to stay out of Hircine's "Great Hunting Grounds" after death.

    Hircine's followers go to the "Great Hunting Grounds" to either become a hunter or prey for all eternity.
    Washargo, being old, fat and lazy, knows which one he would wind up as.
    So, he would rather go to the Khajiit afterlife of the "Sands beyond the Stars" feasting on moon-sugar and beer for all eternity.

    Recently, he has heard of a blackmarketeer possibly selling a hidden piece of Hircine's own realm for an enormous amount of gold...And what better place to hide from a Daedra than under their own nose?

    Actually I have just that, a wolfie stamcro. She is a bosmer pragmatist, who just feels that it is a waste to eat your foes and then leave the corpses behind unused. She uses necromancy as a perverted way to keep the Green Pact as it were. And because she loves hunting and excitement, she chose to follow Hircine's path.

    Making up stories is one of those things I really enjoy. ;-)

    As for your khajit, well, perhaps the same reason? Liking the hunt. Respecting the two moons (and wolfies being moon-beasts as it were). Re-using the dead matter that remains after your, ahem, "meals" is just practical. Pity to just leave a lot of bones and flesh unused there, no? 3:)

    i know the lord of the rings universe isn't exactly elder scrolls. but sauron in the hobbit was referred to as the necromancer and in the silmarillion one of his titles was the lord of werewolves while also taking the form of one at least once.
    if the dark lord sauron can be a necromancer and lord of werewolves while also taking the the form of one why can't your khajiit be a necro ww?

    Nothing stops a person of any occupation/class to contract the lycanthropy disease. All that is required is that a werebeast infects them with it.

    Having a practitioner of necromancy as a follower of Hircine is a bit more odd, though. Because he's about hunting, including in khajiit faith. There's not much ferocious chasing by one's self with necromancy.
    But nothing stops a follower from learning necromancy.

    My Imperial was merely wandering through Bankorai at night and was bitten by wild werewolves by accident. It was just bad timing but he decided to go with the flow.

    Sometimes random things happen
