The Graphic Novel

Wolfram: A Gothic Parable is an original graphic novel series in progress based loosely on the premises of an earlier strip-format project OpCode: Wolfram, in which a wifwolf-at-will renounces lycanthropy and is divinely and permanently relieved from her bloodlust, with the stipulation that she can no longer return to her human form.

When a Fenrin Werewolf renounces bloodlust, a change occurs in his body. He suddenly abhors the taste of blood and flesh, he becomes sterile, and he can no longer walk the world openly as a man, for that door has been closed to him. He must live in seclusion in lupine form, trusting only his new kind and the few humans that will grant him safe harbor. He becomes a Wolfram... and his blood is a resource as dear as life to some, and dearer than his own to the same.

Direst of all, the Wolfrim are prey to those with whom they once ran. They are hunted by their former kin for sport and for sustenance. Those who are spared from death are incarcerated in a Fen'r-heim and treated as multiple-purpose livestock. A few are reserved for private hunts; others are resold as draft-beasts, as test-subjects, or in part as pelts.

The plot currently follows Isolda Steinbrecher, a Wolfram-in (the feminine form of "Wolfram") in the Bavarian National Forest in southern Germany, near a fictional hamlet known as Glaerensdorf. Encountering a young man at the mercy of four werewolves-at-will ("Fenrin" werewolves), Isolda is left with two options: turn a blind eye to the wrongful death, or intervene and kill the Alpha, the oldest living werewolf, Soren.

The decision is easy, but it also leaves Isolda with a needy housemate and reacquaints her with an old enemy with a renewed grudge and a small inheritance of followers, left to him by the very same Soren whom Isolda has just terminated.

If that wasn't enough for Isolda, she remains saddled with the young man, Karsten Erich Kesling II, who develops into one of a class of high-powered humans that the Ordnung von Wolfram deems a threat worthy of permanent incarceration. His only advocates in the Ordnung who know that he is a Semperfort are Isolda, a secluded combat trainer and Diener (human affiliate of the Ordnung) named Charlotte ("Charlie") MacBeth, and Hr. Direktor Loewe, the dire-form Wolfram heading the underground society, literally located under a rock.
