Warwolf, like the rest of his Manimal 'pals', is a powerful creature from an unknown planet in a galactic empire situated in another dimension. In other words, he is both extraplanar and extraterrestrial. In his 'normal' form, he can almost pass as a human, if a slightly more simian looking one, but in his 'monster' shape, all bets are off, for he's a terrifying eating machine!
Shape Change (a): like most of his fellow Manimals, Warwolf is something of a shape changer. He has a 'normal', roughly humanoid form, but can transform at will into his true, monstrous shape. This form replaces Warwolf's head and neck with an exceptionally large pair of jaws, with small eyes and nostrils thrown in for good measure, which doesn't help his reputation as an eating machine any.
Teeth (s): his principal physical weaponry, and by circumstance his favorite, these massive rending machines allow Warwolf to inflict damage with them as though they were +4 weapons per deadly chomp. This occasionally allows him to take down a target with a single bite, which sometimes means he can consume it in one single maneuver - truly a scary thing when Warwolf fights humans.
Universal Digestion (s): since he has a tendency to eat just about anything that irks his ire (or happens to be in his general area), it is assumed that Warwolf has this power by default - otherwise, his endless appetite would've gotten him killed years ago. This ability essentially allows Warwolf to digest anything he eats without adverse effect - unless he simply manages to eat too much, that is.
Hindrances / Augmentations:
Monstrous: it may go without saying, but Warwolf is a pretty scary looking guy. While he may look generally humanoid (if butt ugly) in his 'normal' form, Warwolf tends to enjoy hanging out in his 'monster' shape, allowing him to eat things around him that much easier. In his monster shape, Warwolf is at zero (0) Willpower to prevent zero (0) edge humans from fleeing at the very sight of his horrific visage.
Body Armor (s): while he's a tough critter, Warwolf does wear a suit of personal, non-powered armor at all times - no need to make it any easier on his foes, after all. This suit, built from a titanium steel weave (with thicker titanium plates in places), affords Warwolf intensity 12, or +3, protection from injury to all non-head attacks; when added to his already considerable defense, this is nothing to shake a stick at.
Guns (i): although he prefers to use his teeth in combat, since they allow him to whet his insatiable appetite while dealing with would-be foes - permanently, at that - even the dim Warwolf knows that some opponents take a bit more pounding. As such, he carries two large, pump-action energy rifles with which to take down his enemies, both of which inflict intensity 12 energy-based damage per blast.
Laser Pistol (a): in addition to his two large energy casters, Warwolf carries around a small laser pistol. This weapon, built by the Phase-tech corporation (some sort of alien arms manufacturer), resembles nothing more than a classic six-shooter. Of course, instead of emitting bullets, this gun fires laser beams capable of inflicting his Agility +4 in Armor Piercing energy damage with each deadly shot.
Advanced Guns (a): it pays to know the items you're using, not to mention how to use them well. As such, Warwolf has learned the basics of using just about all the gear he sells, whether it is an energy emitting cannon, some sort of magnetically accelerated slug-thrower, or something else entirely; regardless of the weapon type, Warwolf uses it at one difficulty level lower than is otherwise necessary.
Biology (i): spending all of his free time on the hunt on innumerable worlds in at least two dimensions, Warwolf can be considered an expert on biological matters - specifically an expert on biological mutations. As such, he can reduce the difficulty of actions depending on such knowledge by one difficulty level, even if Warwolf is just using said knowledge to decide which creatures he wants for lunch.
Business / Finance (w): as an intergalactic (and now interdimensional) arms dealer, Warwolf has found it beneficial to learn the ins and out of the business world to rake in a bigger profit. As such, he can bring his Willpower to bear in actions where such knowledge of such matters would come in handy, especially when making deals for items and determining the worth of a given implement of destruction.
As one of the many Manimals loosed within our universe by the Lunartix Empire, Warwolf may be on relatively good terms with his fellow body-changing, extra-planar extra-terrestrials (yes, Manimals are both). He may also have some contacts amongst the hierarchy of the Lunartix Empire itself, as well as various contacts on his homeworld, wherever that planet may be.
Animal Nature: while he is a fully sentient alien, Warwolf's brain is hard-wired towards the consumption of just about anything living in his general vicinity. As such, he's usually beholden to the impulse to eat, whether he is attempting to 'behave' for the purposes of business or not. He usually doesn't bother to rein in these feelings, eating as his whims dictate, unless he truly needs to.
While his titanium armor isn't a costume, per se, it's what Warwolf wears all the time. The armor itself is of a metallic hue, but it is covered by a black leathery exterior, with additional blue padding running down the exterior of the legs, the back, and over the groin. Additionally, Warwolf wears a purple pair of boots, purple gloves, purple holsters, a purple belt, and a blue cap to complete his 'look'.
Warwolf is a single-minded sort of guy. Oh sure, he's often looking around for new people to sell his illicit alien arms to, but for the most part he's only thinking about his next meal. In fact, he's most often actively working out the details of such, even when on the job; his arms deals usually lead to his finding a plethora of fresh creatures on new worlds - sentient or not - to feast upon.

Other Distinguishing Characteristics: in his normal, 'human' shape, Warwolf's facial features resemble those of a gorilla's. In his monstrous alter ego, however, Warwolf's entire head and neck seemingly transform into a large set of jaws, with small eyes and nostrils added on for good measure.
Little detail about the origins of the creature known only as Warwolf have been revealed as of yet. However, it is a known fact that he (along with the rest of his Manimal 'compatriots') hail from a distant universe, possibly the same one the legions of Cobra-La originated in. Regardless, in addition to being an extradimensional entity, Warwolf is also native to a world decidedly different from the earth.
Furthermore, it is known by observing his behavior that Warwolf is a voracious eater; unlike Iguanus, his fellow Manimal, Warwolf doesn't enjoy the thrill of the hunt so much as the eating that occurs at the end of such activity. As such, Warwolf will eat just about anything that moves, not having any scruples about whether said food can defend itself or not, is sentient or not, or is actually food.
This is because, when he gets hungry enough, Warwolf loses the ability to distinguish the difference between, say, a bird and a Cobra helicopter, and will try to eat either if one finds itself in his path. Not that he can necessarily digest such things, but he'll try anyway. Animal, plant, or mineral, all is subject to the apparently boundless appetite of Warwolf, and should steer clear of him if possible.
The problem with this is that Warwolf will eventually wear out his welcome on a given planet, either by eating anything that could possibly interact with him or by irking the ire of sufficiently advanced natives that he endangers. As such, he often sells arms to new races when he encounters them to finance travel from one world to another - so he's ready to leave when necessary.
Occasionally, he finds himself on earth from time to time due to his 'occupation'. Once he's here, though, Warwolf often finds himself at odds with Cobra, who alternately wants to buy his advanced technology and finds itself in competition with him. Naturally, when he proves too tough for Cobra to handle, it's up to the GI Joe Star Brigade to deal with Warwolf - and have no doubt - he's quite a handful!
