I've always been fascinated by werewolves (lycanthropes). In my research I've discovered some little-known information about them.
Substituting homophones (sound-alike words) below for where "were" appears, identify some of this unusual data by adding appropriate letters. Definitions or clues are given and the underline dashes indicate the number of letters to complete the word or phrase. Hyphens show a multiple-word phrase.

Example:
_ _ _ _ - _ _ _ - were : no-iron lycanthrope
(wash-and-wear)

1. _ _ _ _ were : that rather odd hirsute chef you recently hired
2. were _ _ _ _ _ : where they live
3. _ _ _ _ _ were : subordinate werewolf
4. _ _ _ _ were : roadkill lycanthrope
5. were - _ _ _ : three strikes
6. were - _ _ _ _ : depressed werewolf
7. were - _ _ _ _ : anorexic one
8. _ _ _ _ were : he feels cute 'n cuddly, but WATCH OUT
9. _ _ _ _ _ were : "just a moment and I'll call our waiter"


10. bonus - Know how to kill a werewolf? If you do, then what kind of adornment would be a bane to all knowledgeable werewolves?
