Wolf is a futuristic Resistance foot soldier, a bloodthirsty, deadly action hero with a specialty in blowing things up. After years of fighting, he’s desensitized to violence and human emotion. He’s basically an animal; he’s destructive, lacks hygiene and interpersonal skills, but is fiercely loyal to Tiger. Wolf has no respect for Josh and no faith in his ability to carry out the mission. But as Wolf starts to discover the delights of the modern world, it’s his own commitment to the mission that’s called into question.
