Bran Cornick, currently The Marrok (alpha of all North American packs), is the most dominant werewolf in North America. He has two sons, Samuel, by an unknown woman, and Charles, by Blue-Jay Woman, who was his mate before she died after giving birth to Charles. His current mate is Leah Cornick.
Bran's personal pack, where new (willing) wolves are changed and watched and both damaged and unstable wolves reside, is in Aspen Creek, Montana.
Bran's mother was a witch, making him witchborn. This is why he can send mental messages to people.
Bran's mother forced his and Samuel's change so she could play with them. She held them as pets for years and they did her bidding. This made her the most dangerous witch in the British Isles. Bran broke free when she ordered him to kill Samuel. He killed his mother and ate her. This woke the berserker, which is said to be "madness mated to cunning in an unholy combination". He killed every living thing within miles for years; entire villages were eradicated. Nothing lived within a day's walk of his den. One day, Bran just walked out of the wilderness with Samuel as his side as a lone wolf. He later traveled to America as a fur trapper David Thompson, a Welsh map maker, in 1809. Samuel was his only pack and the others came later. He also grew Aspen Creek starting from his trading post to the town it is today. His second son Charles was born around 1813 to his Salish mate Blue Jay Woman(she died after givng birth). Bran's wolf chose Leah as a mate. This causes friction as Bran the man can not love Leah the woman.
Bran has sandy-hair and a nondescript face. He looks like a college student, a computer geek or possibly an art major. He has a few scars, one that ran across his ribs and one just under his right arm. He has warm hazel eyes.
His wolf is small for a werewolf; almost the size of a regular wolf. His eyes are pale gold. His coat has all shades between white and black which make him appear a medium gray with a white tipped tail.
