Complications: Motivation: Recognition Lupine very rapidly went from the most junior member of Next Gen to its most senior member and field commander. He very much wants to prove that he is up to the task. Impulsive Lupine is young and eager. This makes him always ready to act first and think later. He bristles sometimes under the calculated plans of Mr. Summers.

Jacob Wood is a teenager of a Native American tribe in Connecticut. At age 12, he found he was the victim of an ancient family curse that manifests every few generations. He kept his curse hidden for months before in an argument with a classmate he shifted to his wolf form. Horrified at what his friends and family would think of him, he fled the reservation and made his way to New York City. In New York, he was noticed by some of the superhuman community, he pointed Duncan Summers to him.

Duncan assured Jacob that he could help him control his powers and offered him a scholarship to the Claremont Academy. Jacob has proven extremely gifted and after only a few months was welcomed as a junior member of the Next Gen. Simple meditation exercises have been enough to ensure that Jacob has suffered no more involuntary transformations.

Lupine has learned a lot in his short time with the team, but was abruptly elevatd to senior team member when the rest of the team graduated or sought other opportunities. He is a skilled combatant, able to hold his own against many of the Next Gen's foes, but his tendency to rush into battle has left him in over his head on many occasions. He struggles with the responsibilities of leadership and is scared a mistake he makes will result in a teammate getting injured.
