Bio:

Description

Maelgwn looks like a mountaineer. Rugged, with unkempt hair and sun-weathered skin. It’s difficult to gauge his age. His eyes are the sharp yellow-gold of a wolf, wise and aware. He wears battered hide armor that looks like it’s been mended more than once under a hooded fur cloak, and carries a crude spear.

He is reserved, in the slightly creepy sort of way, and lacks the social graces of someone who grew up in town. He watches everything and listens closely, but spends much of his time shapeshifted to avoid actual conversation. He is intuitive, resourceful, and follows his instincts, but isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.

Biography

Maelgwn has come to town begrudgingly. He does not know what happened to his people, only that he left town to hunt and returned to find the isolated village burned to the ground, with no sign of its residents.

Despite his aloof demeanor, Maelgwn is a pack animal by nature, tired of trying to make it on his own and desperately missing his tribesmen. Making friends in town has proved to be difficult, and most of the townspeople he encounters shun him. His difficulty adapting came to a head when he was caught killing a local farmer’s sheep. To the farmer’s surprise, the wolf he shot turned into a man, whom he then handed over to the local authorities.
