Real name: Logan (Very few people know him by this however)
Code name: Wolverine, Weapon X
Occupation: Weapon, soldier, hunter, wild man.
Physical Description: Wolverine is a short but well built individual. His muscles are well toned and he carries a rugged look about him. Most of his features make him seem not only aggressive, but animalistic. His hair and sideburns seem like fur and the crouching stance he usually takes is that of a predator ready to attack. His eyes are sharp and keen, holding much pain and anger behind them and also a touch of wisdom. Wisdom that comes from a long harsh life.
He usually wears dark brown and orange uniform, the mask almost always on. Being a part of SHIELD that they are prone to hide and deny he does not have one of their customary uniforms and could really care less. His costume suits him better, giving him an animalistic and fearsome appearance. When he does wear anything else its usually worn jeans and a black t-shirt or old flannel topped off with a faded cowboy hat.
Mutant powers: Healing factor that allows him to recover from almost any wound. His body can repair it self from numerous kinds and amounts of wounds with the time it takes depending on the severity. Drawbacks to this are the healing process crams all the pain associated with repairing wounds into a short period of time. There is also a draining of energy resulting from this that makes his metabolism screwy. Because of his healing factors Logan's age is nearly impossible to determine.
Along with the healing factor Logan also has animal keen senses. All five senses are enhanced to a large degree beyond normal humans and make him a prime tracker, able to stalk undetected, and makes it hard for anyone to sneak up on him. These abilities have created a very animalistic side to Logan, one that those who use him as a weapon garner and embrace. Depending on the situation Logan allows it to come forward or suppresses it.
Skills: A fighter born and bred. He's weapon in the eyes of everyone around him and as a result he has been trained in many forms of martial arts and fighting. His fighting skills are enhanced by his claws and animal ferocity. And when things get really tough he has a berserker rage that makes him near unstoppable while also burying any sign of humanity in favor of instinct and ferocity. In his normal state of mind a psi would be hard pressed to read his thoughts without working hard at it. When he goes into a berserker rage there is nothing they can do against him. He isn’t thinking. He’s fighting and running completely on survival instinct and rage.
Logan's heightened senses and experience in the wilds also make him an excellent tracker and thereby an excellent killer. SHIELD uses both these abilities to their advantage. Sending him in to clean up or quietly take out situations that regular government agencies couldn't touch.
History: Much of Logan's past is a mystery. What is known is it has been fraught with pain. He does know at some point he was part of an experiment that resulted in his bones being fused with the metal adamantium and his claws. His memories begin shortly after this with his waking in the forest covered in blood and armed with six lethal claws.
Wandering around dazed and disoriented, his healing factor overtaxed from the procedure and escape he nearly died out in the wilderness. Stumbling into a small mountain town bar and diner he was met with instant hostility. A wounded animal, Logan’s instincts kicked in and his berserker rage is unleashed. Everyone who didn’t immediately flee in the diner is killed and Logan collapsed, exhaustion finally claiming him. The local authorities are called in and manage to apprehend him, only for him to recover, claws his way out of the jail and cell taking a deputy’s life along the way and escape out into the wilds.
Reports of this Wildman reach the powers that be of the Canadian government’s Department H and a team is sent out. Alpha Flight manages to corner Logan and after a bloody battle somehow manage to bring him in. Seeing a new nearly unstoppable weapon in their hands the government decides to use Logan to their advantage. It takes quite a bit to bring him back to a man enough for him to understand the deal they wish to make but eventually they do and Logan becomes the a member of Alpha Flight, codename Wolverine.
They use him in tight situations where bringing in an individual alive isn’t necessarily a priority. He also makes a good tracker for them, helping hunt down, and usually kill, those on the governments most wanted lists, and in espionage work. His hunter’s stealth skills making him an excellent spy.
As time goes on, however, Logan realized more and more how much he is being used here. Growing restless and angry Logan becomes more and more aggressive towards his teammates. On a mission Vindicator lets it slip about Dept. H’s decision to discover how Wolverine’s skeleton was created, by experimenting on him. Betrayed and already fed up Logan loses it and attacks Vindicator, gutting the man and escaping.
He crosses the border into upstate New York and spends quite some time wandering the forests there. He makes only a very few trips into the towns there but they do not go unnoticed and soon SHIELD sets their sights on him. Seeing a unique opportunity to gain an asset but also knowing the mistakes made by Dept. H Nick Fury and SHIELD move in, using a different method of approach. They make him an honest deal, promising immunity for his crimes and protection from the officials on the other side of the border, as well as a paycheck and place to stay. What really pulls Logan in; however, is their promise to share with him information supposedly recovered from the program that gave him his skeleton and claws. Information regarding his past.
Seeing no real threat he couldn’t handle and wanting the answers Logan joins, only to realize later that he’s in a situation that isn’t very dissimilar to the one before. SHIELD soon uses him for much the same purpose Alpha Flight had, only giving him a limited freedom he didn’t have before to throw him off. He knows, however, that he’s being used. The answers they promised are not given, bits and small pieces are provided but merely as a dangled carrot to keep leading him along.
He is still with SHIELD now but ready to change that. They send him out on missions that when completed are covered up and kept hidden from the general public. Logan knows he’s a part of SHIELD they would rather not admit too and may use that to his advantage. For now he plays along until an opportunity presents itself and the chance to unleash his claws on another betrayer comes along.
Personality: Logan is mean. He is very mean and angry and would sooner relieve you of your insides than share a word. He’s very aggressive and more an animal than a man. Probably because of the life he’s led and the situations he’s been forced to. Being an experiment, weapon and used by everyone he comes across does not do much to make him a more pleasant. There are a lot of things screwed up in his life and he’s constantly in situations where he’s not in control and thus his aggression raises until the berserker emerges and tries to turn the tables.
There are times though, when he shows a lot more humanity than has ever been shown him. He has for example a sense of honor. Small and hidden as it is he holds onto it, suppressing it for fear of others seeing it as a weakness and yet trying to foster it. Hoping to bring back some of what he lost when he became an animal and weapon. Given the chance and a better place Logan could be a very decent person. As it is though he’s a loner whose been thrust into undesirable situations among less than good company and finds aggression and violence the only way to have any effect on what happens to him.
Likes: Mostly to be left alone. Enjoys a cold draft and hot meal. The closest place he has ever felt at home at is in the woods. And while this bothers him a bit he still enjoys being there.
Dislikes: All the team leaders he’s ever had. Cops and authorities. Being shot in the head and being dunked underwater.
