When the Homeland worlds of the Fables -- that is, near-immortal figures of popular mythology -- were invaded by the mysterious Adversary, thousands of them fled to the mundane world for sanctuary. Bigby Wolf, the literal Big Bad Wolf of legend, was among the refugees. With the urging of Snow White he grudgingly agreed to help found a Fable colony in the New World, and took up the role of sheriff of the secret community, protecting the residents from each other as much as from the outside 'mundy' world. Thanks to a touch of lycanthropy, Bigby has the ability to assume human form at will, but his natural form is that of an enormous wolf, and his 'huff and puff' is a fearsome gale force wind. All residents of Fabletown were granted complete amnesty of past deeds upon signing the town charter, but Bigby's violent past continues to follow him through the centuries, and his fellow Fables regard him with no small amount of wary respect. Which suits him just fine.
Violent Past: Though Bigby reformed after the exodus from the Homeworlds, and was granted general amnesty along with everyone else under the Fabletown compact, he killed and... ate, a lot of people before that. His fellow Fables outside of his closest allies still fear him more than they trust him, and he's not even allowed to set foot on the Farm, Fabletown's upstate annex for Fables who can't pass for human. He lives under the constant suspicion of his community, wondering when he'll snap and 'go bad' again. It's just a matter of time, right? This can make doing his job unnecessarily difficult.
Generally Unpleasant: Bigby's kind of a dick. At his core nature he's a wolf. His first instinct is to deal with unpleasantness with violence or at least threat of violence. Survival of the fittest. Over the centuries he has learned to ACT civilized, to tone down his instinctive reactions and even to be subtle and at times diplomatic, but this does not come naturally to him. He has a tremendous store of self-control, but this is not to be mistaken for patience or -- with the exception of a VERY small inner circle -- friendliness. Even when he's trying to be nice to someone he often comes off as an asshole.
Lonely: So yeah, playing the Lone Wolf is cool and all but wolves are by nature pack animals. And Bigby has spent a lifetime burning (or perhaps blowing down) bridges. He won't admit it but a lot of his gruff nature stems from his frustration with his lack of a pack, or a mate. Or anyone who truly understands him, really. When his job is done he goes back to his shithole apartment to be a miserable bastard, alone.
Sensory Overload: Wolves weren't made to live in cities. Or anywhere with a large population. Bigby's senses are under constant assault from the masses of PEOPLE all around him. The sights, the sounds, and overall the SMELLS of the modern world are an unending bombardment that could drive a wolf mad. He smokes like a chimney, not because he particularly likes cigarettes, but to dull his senses and take the edge off the overload. Even so, every now and then he just needs to /get away/ and spend some quiet time in the wilderness.
Vulnerability to Silver: While Bigby can absorb incredible amounts of abuse from conventional sources, silver weapons can really HURT him. Silver bullets or blades can incapacitate him as easily as a conventional weapon would hurt a normal person, and even kill him.
Technophobe: Bigby doesn't like modern technology. The mundy world is advancing far too quickly for his liking. He'll use telephones or radio, and he's familiar with guns and explosives thanks to his wartime experience, but he prefers to rely on his own natural skills when he can. He never learned to drive a car, and don't even try to get him to use a computer.Mild Acrophobia: Bigby doesn't like heights. This isn't a crippling fear by any means -- he parachuted into most of his wartime assignments -- but he doesn't /like/ them. This may be part of the reason he never learned to shapeshift or fly, as his half-wind nature would otherwise allow. Unfortunately, it's probably way too late to teach an old dog new tricks now. He'll stay landbound when possible, thanks. He's not scared, just... cautious. Got it?
