Wolf is a tough-as-nails surface traveler who worked alone until she met Kipo.

Appearance Edit

Wolf is a short, female human with brown skin, light brown eyes, and curly black hair. She wears cuffed grey jeans, a black T-shirt, a mute wolf-skin cape, and two pieces of black fabric tied around her wrists. She carries a tall staff with a menacing red scorpion stinger that Benson said was a "Deathstalker Tail"on the end of one side, which she lovingly refers to as Stalky.

PersonalityEdit

Wolf is a serious and intelligent girl with major trust issues stemming from early childhood trauma. She is especially distrustful of mute wolves. As one of the few human survivors on the surface, Wolf values self-sufficiency, freedom, and strength. Despite her surly, lone wolf persona, Wolf is not immune to Kipo's unrelenting attempts at friendship. Her budding friendship with Kipo continues to challenge Wolf's hard-won lessons regarding survival, mutes, friendship, and trust.

History Edit

At a very young age, Wolf was adopted by a family of wolf mutes. While not immediately accepted by the family's pups, Wolf eventually befriends her peers when gifted a matching daisy-chain friendship bracelet. After a year or more trusting, living, playing, and growing alongside her "pack," Wolf is blindsided when her wolf parents reveal that they were only training her to develop a "prey with their own strength" for their mute offspring to pursue. Wolf's betrayal multiplies when even her closest friend rejects her for being human. Wolf manages to escape and, in retribution for this betrayal, fashions herself a cape from the Alpha Mom's skin as a warning to other mutes.[5]

Burrow Girl Edit

Wolf is first seen as a shadow, when she captures Mandu and Kipo follows her to her camp. Wolf interrogates Mandu and wishes to know if she can speak, in order to determine whether or not she can eat the mute. Kipo rescues Mandu, much to Wolf's chagrin, though Kipo gives her a bag of snacks as compensation. Kipo then asks if Wolf can help her find her way back to her burrow. Though Wolf initially refuses, she changes her mind after becoming annoyed with Kipo's inexperience on the surface.-

Powers and Abilities Edit

Wolf is resourceful, hypervigilant, flexible, and fast.

She wields her staff like a weapon to vault, strike, block, or otherwise incapacitate her opponents using a fighting style similar to the martial art Bōjutsu.
