Alan Wolfe is a well dressed man, even if his sense of fashion seems to be a few decades old, in the “Neo-Noire” style that was quite popular some twenty years ago. He is perhaps a bit under thirty and reasonably charming. He is a card carrying member of the Atlantean Foundation and seems to have at least some budget for the purposes of looking into archanoarchaeology, magical relics, ancient spell formulae, talismans, especially dealing with cults and “fringe magical systems”.
He is clearly affiliated with the Red Word Boys gang, and during the funding of the restoration of a small neighborhood in the lower 9th he tried to sabotage the fundraiser. During this time Roy was kidnapped and kept in the basement, and Ace Ronin was knocked into a short-term coma while investigating his home.
Roy uncovered that Alan Wolfe is also a Shaman of predatory mentor who he mentioned as being Lilith – a hard nosed variant of the more common Seducer totem, focused instead on hunger, desire, ambition and imposing one’s will on the universe.
