    The Pack 

The Pack as a whole

  • Good Is Not Nice: They kill when their rules are broken. They're willing to torture for information. They keep a cage in their basement.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: As demonstrated by Elena at the start of the first episode. If you go too long without changing, the change will happen whether you want it to or not.
  • Painful Transformation: Though the Pack appears to enjoy being wolves, the actual transformation looks uncomfortable at best. The first time is often fatal.
  • Shapeshifting Excludes Clothing: And as such the service is chock full of Fanservice. Mostly male (as all werewolves save one are male).
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: The involuntary part makes the change look kind of like eating or sleeping. You can do it as you want, or you can wait until it happens to you like it or not.

Elena Michaels

  • Action Girl: She's a werewolf! And the best tracker in the pack. And capable of holding her own against other members of the pack.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Ever since her first kill, she's been unhappy about her werewolf status. Said word-for-word in "Summons."
  • Ms. Fanservice: As the only female werewolf, she has a habit of getting naked. As a healthy, sexually active adult, she has a habit of getting naked.

Clayton Danvers

Played By: Greyston Holt

  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Inverted. Clay in the novels came from an abusive household, but this is not the case in the series. Also played straight: in the series, Malcolm killed his mother after biting him, and his father killed himself after assuming Clay was also dead. In the novels, nothing is mentioned about his family’s fate after he was bitten.
  • Badass Beard: A bit scruffy, fitting his rather scruffy demeanor.
  • Betty and Veronica: The dark, broody, violent Veronica to Philip's Boy Next Door Betty in the triangle with Elena.
    • On the other hand, as a werewolf from the pack and the one who knows Elenas past he is the Betty. Philip on the otherhand is a human with no knowledge of her secret life and is a far more dangerous romantic choice, making him the Veronica.
  • The Big Guy: He's the best fighter among the pack, and generally wants to take things physical against any threat to the pack.
  • Byronic Hero: Clay is broody and tortured by the things Jeremy has made him do in the name of protecting the pack, and constantly struggling to find a balance between his better nature, and his total loyalty to Jeremy.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's big, ridiculously toned, and the acknowledged champion at hand-to-hand combat among the werewolves. He's also Dr. Danvers, professor of anthropology.
  • The Lancer: To Jeremy.
  • Military Brat: His biological father served in the military.

Jeremy Danvers

Played By: Greg Bryk

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Jeremy in the novels is described as having black hair and black eyes. Here, he has lighter hair and blue eyes.
  • Adaptation Species Change: In the novels, Jeremy is a werewolf-kogitsune hybrid. Here, the latter isn’t mentioned.
  • Badass Beard: Neater than Clay's, as is the rest of his appearance.
  • Big Good: Once upon a time, he and Antonio fought their way up the ranks of the Mutts in order to force them to accept Pack rules. They still enforce those rules, to the death.
  • Cultured Badass: In a backwoods Canadian kind of way. He's an artist by trade, he dresses well, he lives in a big fancy house, and he's very polite when he's not ordering executions. Or even when he is.
  • A Father to His Men: As the alpha of the pack, and generally trying to be reasonable.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Where Clay is big, he's quick. Barely had to lay a hand on a Mutt challenging him for Alpha.
  • Race Lift: Described as having Asian features in the novels, played by Canadian Greg Bryk in the series.

Antonio Sorrentino

Played By: Paulino Nunes

Nick Sorrentino

Played By: Steve Lund

  • Green-Eyed Monster: Downplayed. Opens the series quietly (or not so much) jealous of Clay. Not only of his fighting ability, but his relationship with Elena.
  • Really Gets Around: He's had a string of lovers, some of them one of a time.

Logan Jonsen

Played By: Michael Xavier


Karl Marsten

Played By: Pascal Langdale

  • Anti-Hero: Like his novel counterpart, he is still a thief with somewhat loose morals and he can still be very blunt and sarcastic, but he is loyal to the Pack.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Every scene he’s in has him wearing a suit.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He is loyal to Jeremy because he showed him mercy.
  • Big Damn Heroes: LeBlanc tries to stab Elena, only for Karl to catch his arm and throw him into some glass.
    Karl: It’s not because she’s a prize. It’s because she’s a lady!
  • Butt-Monkey: In the third season. He gets captured, beaten (twice) and is killed by the Russian pack in the beginning of the finale.
  • The Charmer: He can be quite charming when he wants to be.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: When he was a mutt, he only looked out for himself and was willing to play the “long con” to get what he wanted from someone, then betray them when they were no longer of use to him. He stops doing this when he joins the Pack, but briefly gets accused of it by Clay in "Bad Dreams" when he tails the Spanish alpha and sees Karl talking to him.
  • Cigar Chomper: Is introduced in "Trespass" smoking a cigar.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Also qualifies as a Gentleman Snarker.
  • Death by Adaptation: He is killed in "Truth, Changes, Everything".
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Eventually, LeBlanc’s attitude (and his vendetta against Elena) combined with Daniel’s obsession with Elena crosses enough lines that Karl decides he’s had enough of both of them.
  • Face Death with Dignity: He stops Elena from defending him to Jeremy, doesn’t protest when Daniel brings up the deaths he is responsible for, and says that all he asks for is a swift death. Jeremy is merciful to him instead, to his visible surprise.
  • Gentleman Thief
  • Heel–Face Turn: In “Ready,” he helps Elena kill Thomas LeBlanc and later corners Daniel Santos for the Pack to deal with him.
  • Last-Name Basis: He is usually just called Marsten.
  • Noodle Incident: When explaining the hierarchy of Roman’s pack to Nick and Jeremy, he mentions that he met Konstantin two years earlier while trying to steal money from the niece of a Russian oligarch.
  • Only Sane Man: Fills this role among the mutts. He is quick to point out that attacking Stonehaven with only four mutts would be a suicide mission.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: This exchange in "Ready":
    Daniel: If you're alive, the Pack must be dead.
    Karl: Are you mad? It's all gone to hell in a hand-basket.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome / Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Dark-haired, handsome and snarky.

Daniel Santos

Played By: Michael Luckett
  • Ax-Crazy: Something is definitely wrong with him.
  • Dirty Coward: Karl calls him out on not actively participating in the attack on Stonehaven, and forcing the other mutts to deal with the Pack themselves.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one after Karl betrays him. He tries to convince the pack that Karl is untrustworthy and is of little use to them, but fails.

Zachary Cain

Played By: Noah Danby
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His girlfriend, Amber, who he wants to someday settle down and raise a family with. He is forced to take her off of life support after she is bitten and left brain-dead with no hope of recovery.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He joins the Pack to help fight Aleister and Clara.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In "Fine Temporum," he takes several bullets for Clay so that he can rescue Elena. He survives.
  • Spared by the Adaptation
