Once upon a time in New York City there lived a community of fairy tale characters known as fabletown. The Fables who live there arrived hundreds of years ago, after they were exiled from their Homelands. Through the use of a magic spell called Glamour, they have protected their secret community from the mundane world. Sheriff Bigby Wolf protects them from each other.

Now then, respect Bigby Wolf!

Bigby's true form is that of a giant, eight-foot-tall wolf. In addition to his iconic "huff and puff" power, he has also inherited other abilities from his father, the North Wind. For example, Bigby is able to hold his breath for an abnormally long amount of time, making it impossible for him to drown.

His only lethal weakness' are silver and fire.

The legends of great and magical wolves often make mention of their weakness against weapons made of silver. And those tales bear out to be true. The silver bullet Mary shot Bigby with was not the first. But any of them could be his last. Any silver left in Bigby's body weakens his system, slows his healing, and can cause long-term damage.

As the son of the north wind, Bibgy was born with ability to transform from human to wolf form. While he declined to learn how to do so and therefore at first could only remain in his wolf form, he eventually became able to transform into four separate forms after Snow White cut him with a lycanthropy stained knife.

Bigby has four different forms, them being a human form, a wolf man form, a werewolf form and his TRUE big bad wolf form.

This inherent ability was passed on to six of his seven children. The seventh didn't get it as he was born a Zephyr, a creature of the wind and without a physical body.

Nice first respect thread. Though I'm not the most experienced with these (only made one), you might want to tidy it up a bit by adding headers between each feat and adding in the sources for each comic scan so people know which comic to find it. Besides that, Noice!
