Those who know her Neverworld identity know that the Little part of Little Red Riding Hood remains accurate, as she has to look upwards to meet most people's eyes and weighs very little despite being reasonably muscular. She is petite and attractive, her face framed by wavy locks of hair, while amber eyes stare out out her large eyes. Her eyes are in fact more those of a wolf than those of a human, even reflecting light the way a canine's do. On her left arm is a large scar that looks like it would belong to a dog or wolf, if one was the size of a draft horse.

As a civilian she is partial to tight but modest clothes, but always wears something red over the top, whether a jacket, hoodie or something else. 

As the Crimson Wolf she wears her riding hood from her life in Neverworld, along with a white blouse, black breeches and some leather riding boots. As a wolf she is a massive, red and blonde canid.

 

History:
Neverworld is a land of storied adventure, a world of great heroes, vile villains and mighty beasts. When Little Red Riding Hood was but a young girl she met one such creature, both beast and villain.

She was walking through the woods to her sickly grandmother's house with food and medicine when a stranger came up to her upon the trail. A Wolf that spoke as a gentleman, asking Little Red as to her destination with a basket full of food. Red had been warned of The Wolf, a trickster and a monster who roamed the woods who eternally hungered, but she was young and naive, not aware of The Wolf's cunning. So she told the Wolf of her sickly Grandmother and how she was walking through the woods to see her and was bringing her supplies. She spoke at length with this charming Wolf as she passed along the trail, until he bid goodbye and wished her and her Grandmother well. Little Red Riding Hood, thinking that she had gained a friend in the Woods continued on her way while The Wolf took a shortcut, beating her to her Grandmother's house and killing the old woman, preparing her into a stew to soften her old meat while assuming her form to trick the young girl he had met.

 

Little Red Riding Hood arrived at her Grandmother's house in good spirits, eagerly telling her 'Grandmother' about this kind stranger she had met in the forest, a Gentleman Wolf who she had befriended and how she hoped to see him on her way home. Quickly she stored away the goods from her basket, before inquiring about the stew The Wolf had prepared. The Wolf had been touched by the girl's enthusiasm about meeting him, her good-natured naivety had caught him off guard and his trickster nature won out against his hunger as he had some food to curb his appetite. So he served up his stew and sat with Little Red Riding Hood discussing her walk through the woods and her new 'friend'. However, his hunger could never be satisfied, especially not with the quantity of food he ate while keeping his role as a small elderly lady. Slowly his transformation began to slip, and Little Red Riding Hood began to take notice, remarking as her grandmother slowly became more bestial. Eventually the eternal hunger overpowered The Wolf's growing affections, and he pounced, but the child had grown wise to the trick that was occurring, as much as she had tried to deny it. She avoided being swallowed whole by the growing monster, instead her arm was caught in it's great jaws, leaving her permanently scarred and, although she did not know it at the time, cursed.

 

She escaped, fleeing into the depths of the forest, her naivety shattered by The Wolf's cruelty, working out what had happened as she had been the one to tell The Wolf of her Grandmother's house. It was with sickening clarity that she realised what the stew she had been given was made of. She curled up in a hollow tree as The Wolf burst out of the small house, returning to his true enormous size having eaten everything he could from the house, and began to hunt Little Red Riding Hood.

The Neverworlder began to feel the magic placed upon her by The Wolf's bite the next morning, her bite had stopped bleeding and she felt a hunger like she never had before, and began her first transformation as The Wolf found her. The Wolf while still hungry instinctively recognised Little Red Riding Hood as a pack member, even as the smaller wolf began to search to slake it's own hunger. After gorging themselves, Little Red Riding Hood transformed back into her human form, and was horrified by her actions. She fled the forest and The Wolf pursued, for years she fled and he would always track her down. One day she found herself in Langogne, France in Earth Prime, although she doesn't know how. Eventually, after acclimating to her new world she moved to Freedom City, where she set up her business, where she fixes broken items and delivers them to their owner after.

She fears that The Wolf will still find her here, she hopes that for some time she can settle, before she has to flee The Wolf once more.

 

Personality & Motivation:
Little Red Riding Hood no longer trusts the way she did as a child, she is paranoid that The Wolf will find her and she will have to start fleeing once more. She is however, determined that if she can prevent others from suffering as she has she'll do whatever she can. She has grown cunning, skilled and self-reliant, but craves companionship that she denies herself due to her paranoia.

 

Powers & Tactics:
She has wolf-like traits due to her curse, as well as her innate powers as a Neverworlder, and then she relies on her cunning and the assistance of her magical cloak. She generally uses the element of surprise rather than overpowering people due to her small size. She can assume her lupine form, which is physically powerful but has does not have human intelligence and has Hunger akin to The Wolf.

 

Power Descriptions:
She has enhanced senses like those of a wolf, although not as acute. Her cloak has a small amount of magical power, and like all Neverworlders she is tougher than a regular human, with sharper hearing and a danger sense that she has honed well in her time fleeing The Wolf. In her Wolf form her cloak is absorbed into her and ceases effecting her, but her regular clothes which lack magic are not.

 

Complications:
The Wolf's Hunger

Little Red Riding Hood is cursed with a hunger like that of The Wolf, even in her human form. She is constantly hungry to some degree, and if she goes too long without food she begins to lose control of herself and her powers.

 

It's Coming, I know it is.

Little Red Riding Hood is paranoid that The Wolf might find her at any time, and as such is distrustful of people who approach her unless she knows their reasons beforehand, and always endeavours to avoid places she could be trapped. Anyone could be The Wolf, so until she has proof otherwise she will plan as if everyone around her is.
 

It won't happen, not while I'm here

Little Red Riding Hood has a soft spot for children, refusing to allow them to suffer fates like hers, even if this would jeopardise her safety and freedom.
