Animal Appearance An Eurasian wolf with a pelt dominated by blacks and dark browns, with some lighter grays streaking through. He's massive even for a werewolf, bulky and muscular, truly taking after the larger Scandinavian and Russian Eurasian wolves. He stands at around 4'9" at the shoulders and 7'11" in length, weighing in at just around 270 pounds. When the wolf is close to the surface, Max's eyes turn an intense, electric blue.

Appearance
- Max keeps it simple, favouring henleys and jeans, with practical jackets. He knows how to dress up if a situation calls for it, but he tends to want to dress for comfort and ease than to look good or fashionable.
- Having lived out of the military's pocket and used to little personal possessions, he lives simply. He keeps his apartment and car clean and free of clutter. His clothes tend to be on the cheaper end, but he spends money on good quality jackets, boots, and other items that are supposed to last.
- Often found with some scruff, but he keeps his hair fairly short.
Personality
Unflappable | Opinionated | Gregarious | Affectionate | Responsible | Loyal | Impulsive
History
- Born in Boston to parents of mixed Eastern European descent.

- Grew up in South Boston, going exclusively by the nickname Yasha derived from his middle name. He was the first in the family to start and finish a Bachelors degree. Completed it at UMASS Boston, a stones throw from home (Go, Beacons!)

- Enlisted in the US Army after he graduated, gained the nickname of Russki because infantry soldiers are not poets and didn't care that he wasn't actually Russian.

- Volunteered for the Special Forces Assessment and Selection after reaching the rank of Private First Class and was chosen for Special Forces training, where he trained as a Medical Sergeant.

- Had a run in with the Russian mafia during an off-the-books operation, saw some incredibly strange stuff and got chased by a bear.

- Was bitted by a werewolf during a NATO operation in Norway. His rapid recovery in the military hospital was noticed by a pack of Norwegian werewolves involved in the NATO operation. Not knowing who bit him, but knowing it had happened on their territory, the pack King felt responsible. With their military ties, the pack negotiated for the loan of Max to the Norwegian special forces. They then integrated him into the pack with the intention of training and preparing him for life as a werewolf.

- Spent some time in Norway with the Norwegian special forces in the far north, operating on the border with Russia. He learnt the tips and tricks of the Norwegians while also sharing what he knew as a Green Beret.

- Was eventually forced to leave the Norwegian pack, but was able to connect with a senior officer in the Green Berets who was also a werewolf. They established a mentorship, allowing Max to continue his service without putting his identity as a werewolf at risk.

- He was primarily assigned to operations that did not have heavy combat involvement, but that did not always go to plan.

- Realising that he was stuck spinning his wheels, Max made the decision to leave the military. He knew he couldn't keep going without being able to do the job he was trained for, but also unwilling to risk revealing his status as a werewolf.

- Max was honourably discharged in 2019. He started a Masters degree on the military's dime at Boston University.

- He found he had trouble adjusting, the city very different from what he remembered after fifteen years. Keeping his status as a were a secret from his family took its toll too, and he felt a clear break was needed. He was simply too different from home now.

- He moved to Ridgefield, Colorado, where CU Ridgefield had a English literature programme that matched that of Boston University. Now he's new in town, balancing student life, trying to find a job, and tracking down the local pack.

Other
- Has long since lost his Boston accent.
- Knows Norwegian, Arabic, and German fairly fluently.
- Knows enough Farsi, Kurdish, and Romanian to have an elementary conversation and enough Russian to interrogate someone at a border crossing.
