Normally a quiet, even-tempered and level-headed boy, Brin can prove stubborn and will display a short temper if pushed into it. He is somewhat anti-social but in not a cruel way, finding it hard to open up to people and will hide his uncertainty under the occasional wisecrack. Once someone gets past his defensive attitude, he is brave, loyal and caring to the point of being protective of those he allows to get close to him.
Because of what was done to him, his instinctual streak gives him a slight intuition and he sees things others miss, solving problems in simple, honest and direct ways. Thanks to his feral side, Brin tends to not fare well in social settings and can seem discomforted by them. He is also somewhat insecure about his new appearance.
Standing in at a height of 6 feet, Brin has a lean but athletic physicality beneath short light grey fur. His ears almost resemble a wolf's while his eyes are yellow and cat-like with red irises. His hair ends roughly below his shoulders while a white stripe runs down the right side, sideburns round his hairstyle off.
When on duty, Brin mostly wears a costume that's orange in general coloring, the center of the front section has an almost Y-shaped middle, dark grey in coloring, with a pair of yellow animal eyes positioned right in the area below the neck. The sleeves are long and end at his wrists while the suit is finished off by a pair of cloth-like brown boots designed to accommodate his clawed feet and brown gloves that end at the elbows.
Born to Mar and Kanna Londo, Brin spent his early childhood living in the mining colony on the inhospitable planet of Zuun, unaware that his mother had given up her dream to be a zoologist when she became pregnant, feeling two scientists and a baby weren't a good mix.
Brin had an uneventful childhood until the day he turned twelve years old. Having ended up working as a medic in a local hospital, Kanna was part of a team chosen to assist with helping the survivors of a cave-in. However the rescue operation met with tragedy as the trapped miners and the team sent to get them out were caught in a further series of tremors, none of them made it out alive.
He wouldn't find this out for the next couple of years though. In the chaos that came with both earthquakes, the Dominators monitoring the mining colony made their move, having identified the boy as being the first in his family to carry a meta-gene even if it was dormant. And under the pretense of getting him to a safer and more stable area, Doctor Londo's lab assistant; Karth Arn led the boy right into a trap...
For the next two years of his life, Brin became nothing more than a test subject for the Dominion. Through their desire to trigger his metagene through various experiments, he would find his life changed forever when Brin's powers were finally activated and the next thing he knew, he was standing in a laboratory surrounded by two or three Dominator scientists who looked like they had been mauled by an animal.
Shaking off the shock, he seized his chance even as the alarm was raised by one of the less severly injured scientists. The teenage boy got enough of a handle on his new abilities to fight his way to the hangar bay and stole a small ship, using it to escape from the Dominion science-vessel...
POWERS, SKILLS & WEAKNESSES
Super Strength: Timber Wolf's strength is several times that of a normal human. As such, he can easily lift and throw things like computer consoles and large medical tables.
Super Speed: Faster than a normal human especially when on all fours, Timber Wolf is able to instinctively avoid attacks and relies heavily on his speed and agility in a fight.
Super Agility: Timber Wolf has enhanced agility making him a fearsome physical opponent in battle. He can use this to enable himself to leap up and from walls when cornered, and adapts it into his fighting style. He can also perform superhero leaps like jumping over high walls.
Heightened Senses: Brin's senses are enhanced, however his sense of smell and hearing seem the most dominant and enable him to identify, locate and track anyone. He also seems to possess night-vision and his sense of taste, coupled with his sense of smell, assists him in his cooking.
Healing Factor: A side-effect caused by a series of Zuunium treatments triggered an adaption that left Brin with the ability to recover from non-lethal damage at an accelerated rate but he can't regenerate lost body parts or organs.
In addition, his claws are more durable than human nails and capable of tearing through most materials.
Survival Skills: Brin possesses excellent tracking and hunting skills thanks to his enhanced senses and is capable of surviving in most wildernesses and extreme temperatures (such as severe storms or blizzards) for extended periods of time.
Combat: His animalistic instincts, coupled with his speed and raw strength, makes him an excellent brawler.
Cook/Chef: Brin has a gift for cooking and baking, something that he inherited from his maternal grandfather. It also seems to have skipped at least one generation as his mother would often joke about her burning water just like Brin's grandmother claimed to do.
Mechanic: While not the genius his father is, Brin was at least taught the basic sciences and found himself excelling at one particular aspect of the more hands-on areas of the technical side of things. While unable to invent something completely from scratch, he can fit and possibly improve on any modifications to most ships, and depending on the damage is able to fix almost any type of vehicle or machine.
Senses: Brin's enhanced senses means he can be disabled or dispatched through the use of sound-based weapons or attacks and gases (either knock-out or poisonous).
Instinctive Behavior: On missions he relies on his instincts, however this can work to his disadvantage when going up against an opponent who's capable of outwitting him.
Anti-social Tendencies: His lone wolf front and the fact that he's prone to feral rages will drive him to act like he doesn't need or want anyone's help if when he's in trouble.
Sticking his head into the kitchen, Brin glanced around before slipping in. None of the others seemed to be around, not that he was complaining as it gave him a chance to check what was on offer. He moved to the kitchen and opened the fridge, poking around inside it.
"Salad. Fruit. Sauces. Aha" he muttered and came away from the unit with half a loaf of bread, a jar of mustard, some cold roast pork, some ham, swiss cheese and a jar of dill pickles.
Putting the ingredients on a table, he moved to prepare a tray and look for the rest of his lunch. Finding a a bottle of water, something called a twinkie and a small bag of Ranch dressing-flavored potato chips, Brin added them to his snack-tray before getting a chopping board and the required knives. With everything ready, the wolf-boy started making a Cuban-style sandwich. Finishing it a few moments later, he slid it onto the plate and grabbed the tray of food in both hands before moving to leave the room.
Once back in the apartment that he had been assigned to and thankful for some time to himself, the feral teenager put his tray of lunch on the living room table before taking a seat on the couch and grabbed the remote. Activating the holo-television, Brin leaned forward to pick up one half of the sandwich in his free hand and bit into it, his attention divided between the show that was currently airing and his thoughts. This Legion of Superheroes had saved him from falling back into the hands of the Dominion and given him a place to stay but did he trust himself enough to accept their offer of membership?
