Character Bio

George photo
As a man he might lack bite, but as a werewolf...

George is all about opposites. He's a family man, but he's turned his back on his own. He loves Nina but so often pushes her away. And most of all he's kind, gentle and thoughtful. But when the full moon comes he's vicious, deadly and violent. Oh yes, George is certainly a man of opposites.

George was a regular, 'sweet but dull' guy before he was given 'the curse' on a holiday to Scotland. Whilst walking the moors he was approached by an American tourist, eventually getting distracted and becoming lost. It was then that night fell and the howling began. When the attack came it was quick and frightening. The tourist was found dead, ripped open from end to end. George was the lucky one, or so he thought. But when the next full moon came, his life was never to be the same again.

As a response to the monthly chaos, George uses his life with Annie, Mitchell and Nina as a way of holding on tightly to normality. He'll try anything just to get close to what others take for granted, and the more things slip from his grasp the more he tries to pull them back. Order makes him feel safe. But when George is around the time of a full moon he becomes more unpredictable. The instincts of the wolf begin to bristle, his sense of smell tingles and his strength grows way beyond the strongest of humans. George has tried many times to banish his lupine urges, but like it or not the wolf will always return.

With this turbulent life come many opportunities for self-improvement. With Mitchell he allows himself to be moulded, learning to chat up girls and play it cool. His relationship with Nina relaxes him and opens him up. And his adventures with Annie teach him to embrace danger and push beyond his comfort zone in order to help others. But this easy influence is dangerous with George, and sometimes he puts complete faith in people who are very bad for him. Like we said, George is a man of opposites.
