Jack Russell (the Werewolf) met Raymond Coker when the two were neighbors at the Colden House Apartments. Usually arrogant and unfriendly toward others, Coker kept to himself while he pursued his college studies. Russell eventually learned the reason behind Coker's anti-social behavior: Coker, too, was a werewolf. However, he had been able for a time to avoid transformations through rigorously performed mystic rituals. Coker was cured when he killed the werewolf that was once Lt Lou Hackett of the LAPD.
