Champions – Theodore, Ward of the Mandate

Theodore was an ordinary seven year old boy before his apartment building collapsed during the Twilight War. He and his two older sisters were pinned in the wreckage and slowly dying of internal injuries when Vasilko – a young russian master werewolf linked to Ranko of the Mandate – tried to save them. For good or ill however, while Vasilko readily got them free of the rubble, the only “medical care” he had available was to change Theodore and his sisters into subordinate werewolves – and let werewolf regeneration save their lives.

Theodore and his Sisters opted to live, and went with that, becoming subordinate werewolves in Vasilko’s pack.

Over the next few years Theodore and the rest of the pack stayed with the Mandate – and, like most of the rest of the children in their care were exposed to forces, experiences, training, and dangers, that normal children never have to deal with. Along the way he, received the blessings of a major power of the hundred realms or “mesoamerican god” and access to remarkable technologies. By now, at close to thirteen, he’s achieved a good part of his adult (100 points plus werewolf power package) abilities – although they’re a lot more esoteric than the usual werewolf’s. Like most adolescent werewolves he looks a few years older than he really is due to his shapeshifting – but he can be expected to look young-adult for quite some time as were longevity slows his aging process to about half normal after puberty.

Despite the extra personal power being a werewolf gives him, and the extensive magical training offered by the Mandate,Theodore has never mastered much beyond “Phone Magic” (a very minor, if handy, field), a bit of crafting, and the use of magical staves. He has channeled some of that extra power into an esoteric form of “martial arts” however; he’s not much for combat – but he’s hung around with the Mandate for years now, and he’s well aware that it happens and that it’s best to be prepared. Finally, while the pack has plenty of money available, he’s recently started making his own writing phone apps.
