Films: Legend of the Werewolf (1975)
Alias: Wolf Boy
Location: Forest/Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: We thought we'd never see the day. A werewolf story that doesn’t feel cut out from all the rest. Granted, we've seen some interesting wolf-boys, but this one stands out in particular, even if the design isn't all that inspired.
History: Etoile was the orphaned son of two immigrants who died trying to get out of persecution. He was raised by the local wolf population to become a feral child, only to be found by a circus troupe and christened the Wolf Boy. It was during this years when Etoile realized he was a werewolf. He made due with this by becoming a zookeeper, forging a friendship with the wolves. However, repressed sexual desire and jealousy could awaken the beast within again...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Etoile is eventually driven mad with rage and grief when he's ordered to kill his wolves due to the werewolf paranoia he started. He's eventually confronted after killing several people, and before any understandings can be forged, he's shot by a silver bullet, killing him.
Weakness: Silver bullets.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-While a vicious hunter, Etoile is hardly different than all the other Talbott-lookalikes before him. With that said, he's got an interesting backstory, and it makes him more pitiful than anything.
Trivia: -There are many cases of people who grew up among wild animals. A notable case involving wolf parents was Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja, who spent 12 years with wolves before clumsily readjusting into society.
-Although this film stars Peter Cushing, he was nowhere to be seen in the first draft.
