Claim to Fame

In his current identity as Jeramiah Wolfson, he's simply known as a man who lives well, well below his means. And that's only if you know him. As the Fenris Wolf, however, he is the force of destruction that needs no introduction.


Reputation

Among mortals Fenris has no reputation beyond that in his immediate circle and he likes it that way. He's occasionally known as someone to talk to when something strange has happened, but given his personality, only the truly desperate try that. Naturally to those who know who he really is, his reputation is quite literally legendary.


Biography

Monster. Legend. God. The Fenris Wolf is a creature of the apocalypse, a literal wolf at the door. It's simply who he was destined to be. Even monsters, however, can grow weary. After countless repetitions of the Ragnarok Cycle - a cycle of death and rebirth unique to the Aesir - Fenris tired of his role in the ongoing sagas of Asgard. The inevitable imprisonment, slow descent into madness and death in battle in a frenzy of bloodletting weighed more heavily on him each time. When at last he could take it no longer he did perhaps the last thing that anyone in Asgard expected: Taking advantage of the distraction of most of the gods around the time of the death of the elves, he slipped out one night and descended to Midgard leaving the Gleipnir in a neatly folded little pile.

At first he did the natural thing for a giant wolf: He fled into the wilderness. For a time he stayed there. The cycles of imprisonment and madness had taken quite a toll on his psyche and it was some time - some hundreds of years, in fact, before he could even think to do anything but hunt, eat and sleep. One gaint wolf in the wilderness went mostly unnoticed. Even a world such as Midgard is used to strange things in the hinterlands and for a time its people still very much believed in magic.

After a time Fenris grew lonesome. A wolf he may be, but the company of animals who happen to look like him, even if he did understand their 'speech' only went so far. In any case, the wilderness was shrinking as humanity expanded and he was starting to become concerned that other Asgardians might find him if they heard too many tales of 'giant wolves in the wilderness.' His relationship with his fellows was complex and not one he was willing to bet upon being friendly. So he adopted a human form and wanded into the nearest norse village.

Being human is harder than it looks, but despite some early missteps he eventually learned how to blend in. As the vikings spread from their icy homes in the 4th and 5th centuries AD, Fenris went with them. As the years rolled on he lived many lives, some nearly heroic, some mundane. He learned how to read human writing, how to work in human trades, how to fight and live and laugh alongside them. But he never became one of them. The predator and hunter can only change himself so much, and so Fenris stayed on the periphery of human events as he moved about the world, ever the warrior or counselor, never the chief.

Fenris learned other things as well. Midgard, he found, is no less a magical place than Asgard, but the magic is hidden and out of sight. What's an immortal to do with all the time he has? In Fenris case, learn everything he could about the workings of the unseen. For centuries he hunted down every tome, every secret, ever oddity he could. He devoured knowledge as he had previously devoured prey. Sometimes he was even able to put these things to use, frequently in the service of remaining hidden from prying eyes and sometimes in the service of those communities he lived in. Wolfish territoriality was never something he could wholly suppress and the odd supernatural creature plaguing the more isolated towns he favored would sometimes find itself on the receiving end of the wrath of a frighteningly knowledgeable, powerful and aggressive protector, sometimes a man, sometimes a wolf, sometimes a combination of the two.

The discovery of the new world in the late 15th century opened up new possibilities for a lot of people, Fenris among them. Travelling to America with the Spanish he vanished into the pristine wilderness once more, delving into the continents secrets and appearing occasionally to the natives when it suited his whims - sometimes as a man, sometimes as a wolf. The establishment of the United States went nearly unnoticed by him, but the nation's meteoric expansion westward certainly got his attention. Intrigued by the boldness of these new people pushing into the untamed wilds, he returned to his habit of living on the edges of their society. He became the mountain man in the woods, the homesteader at the edge of town, and the itinerant fur trader. After the Civil War, he lived for a time as a bounty hunter and gun fighter, one known to occasionally just show up and solve problems of the 'weird' variety.

It was the World Wars that really brought him into human society. There was no escaping them really and the destructive power that mankind unleashed upon itself at once both fascinated and frightened Fenris. He operated as an independent agent on behalf of the allies in France both in 1914-1918 and in the 1940's. When he returned to the US, rather than vanishing back into the hinterlands, he settled in the metro areas for the first time, watching humanity closer and realizing now that as humans proliferated here was a better place to hide from his fellows than ever before. Still, he remained a relative recluse, interacting with few on a regular basis and always on his own terms.

In the 1970's he relocated to New York City and began to settle in for what he thought would be a long period of moving among the masses of the US's most populous urban area. And so he did, for a time.

Recently however, the stirrings of events great and terrible have made themselves felt across the world, from the rise of Atlantis and Themyscria to the return of the Lords of the Aesir to the rise in prominence of the mutant and the metahuman. This has brought the Fenris Wolf - in his latest guise of Jeremiah Wolfson, Park Ranger - back out of the shadows. What is happening on Midgard even he cannot say for sure, but he senses that his time in hiding may be at an end for better or for worse.

Character Details

Fenris is a cultured, intelligent, sympathetic predator. He’s a study in opposites, wealthy beyond any need to work, but driven to hold a job for hatred of idleness. He’s gruff and uncaring with humanity at large, but surprisingly gentle with individuals who hold his interest. Those who understand canine behavior patterns might compare him to an alpha dog, never knowing how close to the mark they’ve really come.
