Charles Cornick is the second son of the Marrok, Bran Cornick, and his former mate Blue-Jay Woman, a Flathead Indian. He has the distinction of being the only person to be born a werewolf, as opposed to Changed per the usual method. He has dual Shaman and Witchborn heritage.

His mate and wife is Anna Cornick 'nee Latham.

Appearance Edit

Charles is a tall and muscular Native American man with blue black waist length hair that he keeps tied up in one or two braids and youth-taut teak-colored skin. He has handsome and flat facial features and dark brown eyes except when Brother Wolf is in assention.

As a wolf Charles is quite large, even by werewolf standards and is covered in red fur with black lower legs and paws. His wolf eyes are yellow.


Charles is a dominant wolf and only submits to his father. As the hand of the Marrok, he keeps himself closed off from all people. Everyone seems to fear Charles, who is saddened by this but recognizes it as a necessity. He is seen by many other characters as cold and one dimensional. However, Charles cares deeply for his pack and those less dominant than him. This proves a strain on his conscience as his instinct is to protect but he is forced to kill to uphold the law. As Charles was born a werewolf and not made, his wolf is almost a separate entity. He puts it as "two spirits, one soul". Brother Wolf and Charles are usually in harmony, however they do sometimes disagree. Charles has great control of his wolf. He can also be overprotective of his mate and his family. He does not like to be touched as he fears he may get to close to a person but Brother Wolf craves touch so his compromise is Anna. Charles can be aggressive towards others, except Anna, and he often shares as little information as possible.
