As said in his origin, the most recent successor of The Wolf has a story that is considered to be of little use to who he is now but this is that story.
His name was Joseph son of David (last names weren’t very common but if you are wondering it was Stevens) and he was a boy no older than 12. He lived with his father, mother (Sarah) and three brothers: Timothy, Esau, and Paul. He lived in a slum in a city in a world where law existed but was simply based on everyone’s idea of justice. Joseph had morals of decent means as well as his family but was a thief so that he could support his family. One night, there was not enough money to buy food. The town leader, Adrian Pilate was known to be vile, greedy, and also cheat others in their monthly payments so that he could live better than everyone else among other horrible crimes. The only reason he was supported was because he was the only man who had control of the crops and medication in the town. Joseph decided to steal the man’s money which he figured wouldn’t end well but he needed medicine for Timothy.
Joseph was a talented thief so he had no problem stealing food, medicine, and money. He thought he got away without a trace, but Pilate found out. The man was furious at what had happened so he traced Joseph to his home. While the family dined (without knowing how they received their supplies; they assumed it was a gift from the holy place) Pilate gunned down everyone in the house except Joseph. He wanted him to live through the pain of losing something as he had done.
When Joseph got up from the frenzy, he was alone, and hysterical. He decided to get revenge for what had happened (despite the fact he essentially caused it) so he spent the next 7 years preparing in every way to get his vengeance. He finally found a way to get inside the newly secured home (and by new I mean how I skipped 4 years so this is all you know) however, things would take a turn for the absolute worse.
He got inside pretty easily and was off to find Pilate. He soon came to see Pilate in the main hall of the fifth story across the house while Joseph looked from the fourth floor window of the west branch of the mansion. However, He soon regretted his plot as soon as he saw what was inside the top window of the mansion. He saw Pilate accompanied by a woman and a few children. He wasn’t in it to get revenge on a woman and children who would soon lose their father and her husband, but he couldn’t let him escape. He ran across the mansion to the hall and was a hall’s view away from the man who ruined his life. Joseph attacked him and was in a skirmish for a while. The woman took the kids down the stairs but couldn’t escape what would happen next.
Joseph slammed Pilate into a light that lit a spark onto the carpet. The house fire grew even quicker as the flames reached the gas tanks that supplied the house’s power. Pilate let go of Joseph to help himself and family but the chandelier that hung on the ceiling fell and crushed the family. Pilate was in almost as much terror as Joseph was. Joseph had come too far to die or lose so he jumped out the nearest window and luckily had his fall broken by various canopies. He figured Pilate would die in the fire and that his life was broken without any resources, money, and sadly, his family. After coming to this consensus, Joseph ran.
Joseph was lost so he ran into a nearby forest. He wasn’t sure how to cope with his action; be the villain he just saw himself become or repent and become the hero. Out of nowhere he was attacked by a ferocious beast that nearly killed him. He was only bite away from meeting his maker but something changed. The cycle of dying from mistakes and evil changed because out of nowhere a second animal came to save him, to change him. The choice the boy would make was clear because what saved him was a wolf; it was The Wolf.
