Alex is only 17, but has experienced far more than most kids, human or werewolf. He tries to take care of his friends. They are many and varied.
He is happiest when running freely through the woods near the Academy or being with friends. But he still is in demand as a leader even if not an Alpha. He has earned respect even if it is not always freely offered. He has to protect his pack and seeks the chance to shut the General down to save many wolves.
He has Kalia and Siere to worry about as they try to help him until they cannot. Then his world changes as events tear at him and silver affects him to the point of failure. But the General learns not to hurt his son as Alex changes the playing field as football quarterback and rescue hero.
