Real Name: Eric Cord
Occupation: Ex-college student
Enemies: Captain Janos Skorzeny, Professor Nicholas Remy, Alamo Joe Rogan
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Mobile
First Appearance: Werewolf #1 "Pilot" (Fox Network, 11th July 1987)
Powers/Abilities: Able to transform into a werewolf (he has no real control of this form, and becomes a vicious animal); able to sense things and see into the past of other werewolves. He is probably immortal, since both Skorzeny and Remy are immortal, and it appears all werewolves might well be.
History: When college student Eric Cord's best friend, Ted, revealed to Eric that he is a werewolf, Eric at first refused to believe him. However he soon stops being a sceptic when Ted transformed in front of him and attacked. Eric managed to shoot Ted dead, but not before he too was bitten. Now cursed with lycanthropy, Eric discovered that he could be cured if he could kill the progenitor of his line, a man called Janos Skorzeny. Eric began a life on the run, pursuing the murderous Skorzeny, who proved to be both ancient and able to transform at will and control his brutal beast, while in turn being pursued by a bounty hunter "Alamo Joe" Rogan, who wanted to kill a werewolf. Eventually he managed to slay Skorzeny, only to discover that he was not the head of the line: that was Professor Nicholas Remy, an even more dangerous werewolf.
Comments: Played by John J. York. Werewolf was a tv series which ran on Fox in the U.S and Sky One in the UK. The show lasted for 29 episodes, although the extra-long pilot is often split into four parts, making some guides list 32 episodes. Later a series of comics were issued based on the short lived series.
