A headshot sketch of Zach, who is the final member of the trio for the wizard story. His backstory is probably going to undergo a bit of revision, but as it stands now, he’s a preppy surfer from a well known family in the local area whose life got turned upside down when he was bitten by a rogue werewolf one night on the beach.
Without a pack to support him through the transition, he spent the first month undergoing changes that he didn’t understand and wasn’t prepared for, and his first moon ended with him waking up naked in the woods, covered in dirt and leaves.
It was at this point that he met Ms. Hazel, who was waiting for him with a blanket, some clothes, and some water. She explained to him what had happened, and what he was now, and that she didn’t mean him any harm. She offered to take him in for as long as he needed, to teach him how to manage his new condition, and – without any other options he could see – Zach agreed.
It’s been a few years since that day, and Zachary has settled in quite nicely at the cabin. Being a naturally laid-back and cheery individual, he took lycanthropy in stride and learned to live with – even enjoy – his new abilities, and he stays at the cabin helping where he can out of gratitude towards Ms. Hazel.
When Jamie arrived, Zach was the first of the trio to greet him, and more or less made it his mission to help the poor, isolated young man in any way he could.
Long story short, imagine a nearly seven foot tall surfer with the personality and adherence to personal space as a overeager golden retriever that has no idea how big it is.
