Introduction

If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart

Stereotypes

Bygones "I've been around longer than most. That having been said? I can't claim to have seen and known all of my erstwhile fellows that roam the world's hidden and not-so-hidden places."
Vampire "They stink of death, unnaturally so. Worse than death, even. Some live in my wood. So long as they remember that I was here first, and they respect my territory, I have no quarrel."
Werewolf "Cousins. Some by blood, some by spirit. Many of them wear the form of wolf, its only fair that I get to wear the form of man."
Wraith "Ah, yes. The witches and wizards. Holy Men too. Some of them built tall stone towers in my wood, others merely claimed a glade. Some, they were just passing through. All of them have proved to be more trouble than they're worth!"
Changeling "I remember the time before the Sundering, when these lords, ladies and commons roamed my wood. I wonder if any of them might remember me?"
Demon "My gods are older than theirs, and far more present in the world."
Mortal "My relationship to them has grown and come a long way since all the bad press I received regarding the mess with the girl in red, her grandmother and that @#$%ing lumberjack. History is written by the victors, and I was on the losing end of that one. Don't believe all that you've heard or read."
Ghosts
"I've made a few of these in my day, but who hasn't that's been around for as long as I have? Strangely enough? I seem to have outlived most of them, twice."

Contacts
Little Red Riding Hood
My beloved Red, stolen from me so long ago by the grandmother witch and the lumberjack with the wicked axe. Not an evening goes by without me looking up and expecting to see her standing there before me just as she was once upon a time. Beautiful, caring, and wise. And then I remember how she was taken from me, and that it has been forever and a day since I lost her, and I howl my loss to the moon. But now you have returned?! What manner of miracle or devilry is this?

Yarden

The neighbor. A mystery which I feel compelled to solve.

RP Hooks
Bigby is a Wolf of the Mythic Age, the source of all the old legends of the Big Bad Wolf stories. As such ...


Over the River and Through the Wood

He's one of the older Bygones out there. He's been around since before the Sundering, and the old growth forests of Europe have been his playground for quite some time. Its not inconceivable that he's crossed paths, as either wolf or man, with any number of Changelings, the Kindred of Clan Gangrel, and of course, all manner of Werewolves. If you're not quite that old, maybe you've heard the legends?


Snow White

The White Lady, aka the Fairest One of All, with raven locks and ruby lips and skin like the new driven snow. He's had a lesser well known history with this archetype. Are you she or a a ringer for her? Maybe a mortal or not-so-mortal descendant? If so, then there's ample opportunity for some interesting history and encounters!
