George is all about opposites. He’s a family man and yet he’s turned his back on his own. He loves Nina, but pushes her away. At heart he’s kind and thoughtful, but when the full moon comes he’s vicious, deadly and violent. George was a regular sweet but dull guy before he was given “the curse” while on vacation in Scotland. George thought he was lucky to have survived the wolf attack, but when the next full moon came, he realized his life would never be the same again.
George uses his life with Annie, Mitchell and Nina as a way of holding on tightly to normality. He’ll try anything just to get close to what others take for granted, and the more things slip from his grasp the more he tries to pull them back. He’s tried many times to banish his lupine urges, but like it or not the wolf will always return.
