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.

As the son of the north wind, Bibgy was born with ability to transform from human to wolf form.

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