His family origin is rooted within Germany, but Wolfram knows nothing about the country or its culture outside of what American media allows. His own DNA matrix is composed of a vast variety of ingredients pulled from every corner of the globe. Germany is the Marx ancestral home, but it is not Wolfram’s.
He is a Brooklyn boy through and through, a locale that ingrains itself within the way Wolf speaks, the way he gestures, and the way he perceives the world. The reputation he earns within the schoolhouse is promising but rough around the edges. It’s a reputation that boyish bravado has him wearing like a badge of honor – much to his mother’s dismay.
His father is less concerned with Wolf’s acting out, but that is par for the course. Jeremiah Marx is less concerned with anything that isn’t his job – and not the vocation that brings the money into the home, but the one ingrained within his blood.
The Marx family are hunters and their prey is not the mundane. Learning about the existence of were-creatures does not come to a surprise to Wolf. He is introduced to the concept at an age where he accepts whatever reality is presented to him. At that point, he still believes in Santa Clause, too.
With age comes increased responsibility. His father begins to take Wolf out on hunts, to teach him the true family trade. Wolf learns, he excels – he has a natural penchant for violence that his father promotes and nurtures. Not once does Wolf question his father or what they are doing. It’s humanity against the monsters, and according to the Marx patriarch, the hunters are the only thing protecting society from mayhem and collapse.
Make a boy feel important, make him feel like a hero, and he’ll latch onto it. Jeremiah Marx understands how to manipulate, how to mold his son’s mind into something he finds acceptable. Wolf is none the wiser, he revels in his father’s attention, something so lacking in his earlier, formative years.
The years pass and Wolf does not question. He does what is expected, the good little soldier in his father’s dwindling army. It’s no secret that the Marx family is held in low regard by many other hunting families. Their methods are too black and white, too quick to seek a violent means to an end. Jeremiah Marx claims the other hunting families have gone soft in the new millennium. They are too weak to do what is necessary. Wolf, as ever, believes his father.
The family vocation does not pay the bills and so Wolfram seeks employment. Police work is a natural fit given his particular set of skills. He passes all the necessary tests and as planned, is stationed in Brooklyn where he can continue his father’s work.
Jeremiah Marx feels no remorse when he ‘puts down’ a were-creature. Wolfram Marx seems much the same, but he is not the perfect copy of his father as the patriarch might hope. Though seeds of doubt plant within his soul, a new one for each bullet he fires, Wolf does not allow himself to question his father’s authority.
Until the day he doesn’t.
Until a paradigm shift born from guilt and resentment breaks Wolf free from the shackles of his father’s control. He is not brave enough to go head to head with his father, to look him in the eye and stand his ground.
He is not brave and, like a coward, he runs instead.
Wolf puts in for a transfer at the precinct and, within months, he is granted his reprieve. He is transferred across the country to Los Angeles. There he buries his past just as he did his inhibitor, a device lost somewhere in the bottom of one of the moving boxes Wolf never bothers to unpack.
Years pass by and barring a visit from his younger brother, Wolf falls out of contact with his family all together. He is their pariah and though the moniker stings, Wolf bears it with a measure of pride. Finally, at the age of twenty-seven, he is becoming his own man. There are litany of ups and downs, of regrets and failures, of relationships that never work out.
It’s life. He’s living it. It’s his and his alone.
Any desire to save the world and be the hero was extinguished the day Wolf opened his eyes and realized he was the bad guy in the story. And so he settles for a life of mediocracy instead. He’s good at his job and is promoted to the rank of lieutenant relatively quickly, but his career peaks shortly thereafter.
He is burdened with a sense of listlessness and the nagging demon of failure – no matter his successes – for all his adult life. Wolf pushes forward through it all, moving forward is the only thing he knows how to do, one determined step at a time, headed to nowhere in particular. He has no goals, no aspirations, simply figures that moving forward is better than not moving at all.
Over his career, he transfers to different locations, but he can never quite shake himself from the malcontent hounding him. His Chief in Seattle notices the tense line perpetually drawn into Wolf’s shoulders, and his fraying temperament. He’s burnt out and the Chief tells Wolf as much, and suggests he transfers somewhere smaller and quieter than a big city.
He says he knows a guy in Somerset, Pennsylvania, that they could use the experience Wolf would provide.
Wolf agrees. He’s tired of Seattle anyway.

Child Abuse. Animal Abuse.
Wolfram + Molly
My first offering is Molly who is a human peacekeeper who's mostly lived in Somerset, though she did do a little hunting with a family friend some years ago down in Mississippi. If he plans to possibly join them one day, he should meet one, right? She's also a bartender in her spare time between peacekeeping and parenting since she has a seven year old daughter. It should be easy enough for their paths to cross since he likes to drink, and she wouldn't be bothered by his rough around the edges behavior. She isn't a fan of bullshit either so I think they could get along!
Wolfram + Connor
You want anti-cop? I got you.
Connor's a werecoyote and president of the Sons of Mayhem MC so obviously he has no love for the law. Given he grew up watching the club be discriminated against and saw police brutality (he's 70 so he saw a lot of shit), he doesn't show much respect for anyone in law enforcement; however, he and the club are on good behavior thanks to their alliance with the clans but who knows how long that'll last?
I'm nosy so I noticed the thread with Dallas who is one of the club kids which is already going to put Wolf low on his like list because they don't talk to cops. Perhaps once that thread concludes, we can do something with the pair of them where Connor lets him know he's not welcome near anyone in the club? Everyone needs an enemy, right? XD
Wolfram + Callie
Callie's my werebear alpha who owns and sometimes runs the local gym, Modern Kyoshitsu. Officers have to remain in shape, right? Several members of the police department have keys to the gym so they can use it whenever it's convenient, within or outside business hours, which means Wolf would have access, too. It has classes for various types of martial arts, kickboxing, group classes vs. solo activities or sparring so whatever he wants, he could likely find! Anyway, she's pretty much everyone's mom so maybe she can help him realize all werecreatures aren't jerk-offs!
Wolfram + Isabel
Isa is a werelion FBI agent and the partner of @Andrew Payne; however, she's stuck working as a reporter while Andy gets to be in the station. Wolf will likely see a fair amount of her trying to gather information or hanging around her partner. She absolutely hates being in a small town and only tries minimally to hide her disdain, but some efforts are made since she's stuck here indefinitely thanks to the higher-ups. Perhaps he can provide someone who isn't a complete country bumpkin? Though if he's worked with Andy in the past, he likely did with her, too, which could add onto the problematic part.
Wolfram + Chayton
I have a wendigo who should be passing through Somerset again and possibly eating someone! His only thread to date involved eating part of a human and bbqing the remains then pretending he had no clue what happened to local police and the bird of prey beta. He's a truck driver who kind of goes anywhere so perhaps their paths crossed?
I'd like to see him get close to being caught or outed as a wendigo but not quite because DRAMATIC!
Wolfram + Lindy
Given Lindy's a cop's daughter and a victims advocate, she's at the station a lot. Her job involves dealing with victims of crime and getting them whatever services can help them move forward. It can be a depressing job, but she likes helping folks!
His gray morality could be a problem for her because she's very by the books and believes in the law; however, in the right circumstances, she is willing to bend things a little, but she'd still get as close to that line between legal and illegal as possible without crossing it. His lack of bullshit might bother her, too, since she tries to keep things in a positive light since her job is negative enough, but still, could be interesting to see them work on something together! Plus she's a wolf so more werecreature exposure!
