Why I Wrote The Legendary Wolf

            The Legendary Wolf is a story that I first conceived back in the summer of 2013. Though it’s gone through quite a few changes since then, the story’s core has remained the same. I’ve always been attracted to the idea of having a character who is an older warrior/soldier. The questions formed the foundation of this novel were: What happens to the warrior after they’ve grown old? What happens to the soldier who has no battle left to fight?
            With these questions as a basis, I began to create The Legendary Wolf. Along with the idea of an older protagonist came the idea of a protagonist who has grown disillusioned because of everything they’ve seen and experienced. The character of Grayson Wolf was birthed from all these ideas. Grayson’s character is inspired by many classical stories that show a fallen protagonist shed their past and rise back up. Thematically, Grayson Wolf’s character arc is quite similar to the character arcs presented in films such as Logan & The Equalizer.
Grayson is a former government assassin. He was a legendary killer who was feared by all his enemies, and his feats earned him the nickname of Mors (named after the Roman embodiment of death). However, decades ago, Grayson went AWOL on his government and disappeared. Now he’s an old man who is disenchanted with the world, and he lives a pitiful life. He simply exists day-to-day as he waits for the Grim Reaper to one day come and take his soul to Hell. But that all changes when he suddenly finds himself thrust into a situation where he is forced to protect a young girl from the dark forces pursuing her.
The Legendary Wolf is the story of Grayson’s redemption and his final hurrah. After a lifetime of violence, Grayson finally has the chance to do one truly good deed to give his last days some semblance of a meaning.
            I wrote this novel and intertwined the themes of atonement into it as a way to show the reader that it’s never too late to turn around. Sure, the story itself and Grayson’s character are a bit fantastic. However, his struggles are grounded in the everyday struggles many people go through, especially as we grow older. He struggles with loneliness. He struggles with his past. He struggles with all the bad deeds he did in his life, deeds that now haunt him. And he finally overcomes these struggles by finding a new purpose for his life.
            That was the motivation for The Legendary Wolf.
